hey guys, so here are the things that I am doing
I am trying to run firefox at the start with no wm or any other app so my .xsession file as shown in the picture looks like this. Also, I removed wbar.tcz, Xprogs.tcz and flwm_topside.tcz from onboot.lst as I only want to run firefox. Also, I have a script in /home/tc/.X.d/ that runs firefox on boot.lst.
There are two major problems that I am facing as Firefox runs in full screen (as given in the script using xdotool key F11) the firefox is not in totall full window i.e it doesn't cover the whole screen. I have attached photo below in which the right side and the bottom side is not in full screen.
-> The second problem is I am trying this fix as given in this url https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1092572 . But,in the directory /usr/loca/firefox-esr/defauls/ I am unable to find the file userChrome.css and hence to apply the fix.

Glad you got it working - I took the slacker's way out. :)

A couple of other options for better looking fonts also exist:

Use the terminus-fonts.tcz package.  They aren't truetype fonts, but are VERY clear and easy to read.  Up to a 32 fontsize which helps if you are running say native resolution like 1920x1080 like I am.  I can help there if the package info file isn't too clear since I was the one who made it.

Or, in true slacker form, download and install the XFCE-4 terminal, and perhaps the Deja-Vu truetype fonts tcz's.  From there you can point-n-click the font adjustment...

Fun times!

Hello Rich,
Thank you for your quick reply.

My "Xft.dpi" was 96.0, too.
I tried
Code: [Select]
aterm -fn -adobe-helvetica-bold-o-normal--19-140-96-96-p-0-iso8859-1 &and it worked.

Thank you for your detailed explanation. ;D

Hi clyde987
Find the DPI listed in in your  .Xdefaults  file:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ grep Xft.dpi .Xdefaults
Xft.dpi: 96.0
tc@box:~$

The following command can be used to list all the  14 point  fonts on your system suitable for  96 DPI:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ xlsfonts -f -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-140-96-96-*-*-iso8859-1

tc@box:~$

Find the  Aterm*font: fixed  line in your  .Xdefaults  file and replace the word  fixed  with one of the fonts returned with the above
command.

 * For a list of appropriate fonts available on your system:
 *    xlsfonts -f -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-S-DPIx-DPIy-T-*-iso8859-1
 * Where:
 * S  Size of font in tenth of a point. For a 12 point font, use 120
 * DPIx and DPIy  These values can be found as  Xft.dpi   in in your  .Xdefaults  file
 * T  Use  p  for proportional. For monospace (fixed), try  m  or  c

If you are using the stock aterm terminal, one has to edit the .Xdefaults file like we did back in '95.

The fastest way is to just fire up another terminal from within Aterm using one of these fonts typically:

Code: [Select]
aterm -fn 10x20 &
or
Code: [Select]
aterm -fn 12x24 &
They are bigger.  Not exactly beautiful, but functional.  They are the largest you'll find on a stock system, but provide a nicer environment to get started with.

If you run

Code: [Select]
xlsfonts
you'll see other smaller fixed-width fonts like 9x15 and so forth that may or may not be too small with a high resolution screen.   The font journey begins! :)

Hi xor
From the release notes:
Quote
System Requirements

Before attempting to install the AMD Catalyst Proprietary Linux Graphics Driver, the following software must be installed:

    Xorg/Xserver 7.4 and above (up to 1.17)
    Linux kernel 2.6 or above (up to 3.19)
    glibc version 2.2 or 2.3
    POSIX Shared Memory (/dev/shm) support is required for 3D applications

In TC9 Xorg is up to version 1.20 and the kernel is at 4.14. This may cause some problems if the install package checks for
upper limits on version numbers. That package is also closed source that hasn't been updated in almost 4 years so it may not
be compatible with the current Xorg/kernel versions.

I temporarily lost my Wifi access AFTER I got <grub2EFI> working.
What helped was trimming of the cosmetic-fluff from the grub.cfg entry,
 which allowed the vital error mesg: <KERNEL TOO OLD> to be read,
 instead of flashing-past.   ….. I'll post details tomorrow.
