TCB Q&A Forum / Re: Xvesa without WM + dosbox

I did something like this many years ago -- I cheated and used a small window manager -- I believe it was twm -- i.e. one that doesn't start anything by default.

Well, tried to have a new activation sent this morning -- said that it was sent successfully -- 2 hours later still have got nothing.
(yes I checked all the usual suspects, -- spam, trash, etc.)  The email address is my standard one .. submitted using the Firefox  memory.

I'm beginning to think it doesn't like me.

Hi beerstein
Does  /usr/bin/screenshot.sh  look like this:
Code: [Select]
[ -z ${DISPLAY} ] && echo "Requires X" &&  exit 1
filename=screenshot_`date "+%m%d%H%M%S"`.png
/bin/sh -c "sleep 1 && /usr/bin/imlib2_grab $filename"
If so, try changing the line that says  filename=  to:
Code: [Select]
filename=$HOME/screenshot_`date "+%m%d%H%M%S"`.png

It is working well after a fine re-boot. :)
Preliminary answer to Onyarian's question: Xtc.tar.gz seems to be an extension of its own as it appears under 'tce/import/debs/'. It is be pulled in as a dependency of Xprogs.
TCE Bugs / ScreenShot problems and tce-load window characters
« Last post by beerstein on June 29, 2015, 06:49:42 AM »
piCore 6.1 does not save a screen dump png file into /home/tc. I can select SceenShot from menue and click and it shows the message that a screenshot has been made.
But no png file in /home/tc.
There is another glitch which needs attention: Characters in tce-load window have no contrast and not visible.

Please help or help with howto fix it?

Thank you

Excuse me Jason, I am wrong or Xtc is part of Xprogs?

Hi nitram
Thanks for testing.
Was unable to test without imlib2.tcz on my system, as it's a dependency for Fluxbox.
There's no point in trying to test without imlib2.tcz since grabber depends on it.
Also a dependency for Xprogs, so unlikely anyone will be running without imlib2.
icewm.tcz.tree  does not list  Xprogs  as a dependency.
...otherwise all good. Nice extension.
Glad you like it.
TCB Q&A Forum / Xvesa without WM + dosbox
« Last post by Scampada on June 29, 2015, 03:26:06 AM »
I'm not sure whether it is a regular Linux question or not, but I think Xvesa that is used in TC along with Xorg may have some tweaks, maybe.
I'm using Xvesa to start X without any window manager, and then start dosbox in it; for now I have exec dosbox& in my .xsession and it works.
But, I want to have two options at my hands: run dosbox in fullscreen (works perfect) and run dosbox not in fullscreen, so it would be just a 640x480 box in the center of display (and then I would try to set a background picture for a display and make it fancy-shmancy, ASO).
I can't manage to do this. Dosbox runs in the top left edge of the screen when in non-fulscreen mode; all my attempts using -geometry, --geometry ASO ended in vain. I've found some relevant note of this:

Usually to run a program within x without a desktop you would

startx <path/to/dir/filename.ft>
Personally I've never done this with mplayer, but a large variety of games which require x can be run in this way, upon exiting the program, you will be returned to the command-line.

Perhaps this will work for you or will help someone with a similar issue.

So, startx /usr/local/bin/dosbox, right?
Sounds good, but doesn't work. Xvesa starts but dosbox doesn't. Maybe it works only for Xorg, or something, I wonder?

So, how can I position a window (well... not a window when there ain't no WM... a region then) before, or after starting it in Xvesa using command line only?
Yet one more question. This definitely is a brutal, regular Linux one, but, sorry... How can I make X server instance shut down when I'm closing dosbox running inside it? (If I started dosbox first and then it started Xvesa... well, it would be obvious. But it's totally contrary.)

sorry one more feedback.....just rebooted with Xorg and no config file.....maybe I need one...buts thats a matter for me to sort out

here is proof of xorg, I hope as we now have pretty colours and same faint font.

2) I was unable to untick the UTF-8 encodings....but as I said I am not experienced with gnome-terminal so not fussed either way on that issue.

thanks for reading
ugh.. I am indeed using FLWM.. :\

Didn't really want to think about other windows managers to cut on the size of the image..
