Is anyone seeing just the default xorg black & white herringbone pattern as the background (and inside aterm transparency) too?

This is the 64-bit iso, running default with no additions out of the box.

It's just the tweed/herrinbone pattern as the background, no logo, and the wallpaper app has no affect.

Tried it on different machines, same thing.

Never seen that before. :)

Ah - I hadn't noticed that.

Xvesa displays a similar, but different, problem in 32-bit as well.

Several x libraries and other x components were updated between 12.x and 13.x - nothing shows up in /tmp/wm_errors though.

I'll take a look.

The hsetroot upgrade broke the TinyCore isos' backgrounds. Since multiscreen is not possible using the base, we should restore the old hsetroot and put the extra-dep-needing one in an extension.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Whilst poking around I also found that, without changing hsetroot, loading libXinerama restores the blue background and also that imlib2 has an unmet dep on an old version of giflib.

..and that, with Xvesa and Xfbdev, firefox from firefox_getLatest has a missing dep on libXtst.

Xlibs reverted to previous version, TinyCore/CorePlus/TinyCorePure64 iso's rebuilt and re-posted.

Hi, just upgraded to TC v13.0.

Can extension xf86-video-nv.tcz be copied over from 12.x? Trying to make this 12 year old box last as long as possible!

...hsetroot...

Hi, just speaking out some thought.

How about moving this executable (or all) to /usr/bin in Xlibs ?
Therefore, a dedicated extension hsetroot.tcz can take the default path /usr/local/bin

Similarly, many new comers tend to freakout when desktop.sh is not presented.
What if we add a fake link to the core to prevent error message ?
Code: [Select]
ln -s /bin/true /usr/bin/desktop.shOr just add some checkers to the tce-load script  :P

Thank you for the new TinyCore edition.

I just tried  both 32 and 64 bit architecture of TinyCore-13.0 transferring my surf-installations from tce-12.0 with success.

While there is almost no difference between tce13.0-32 and tce12.0-32 I found a nasty little problem with corepure64-13.0:

I need a german keyboard; but  X11/xorg.conf.d/de_keyboard.conf   did not work as in corepure64-12.0.
So I took  kmaps.tcz  as in earlier installations and apparently it worked well.

One exception: the  brave.tcz  browser does not accept the AltGr key, so I'm missing "@", "{", "[", "]", "}", "\", "~", and so on. The other programs like editor write these keys though, so I could workaround with copy&paste.

Until now I did not find other programs showing this problem.
 
And, btw. I'd like to have the IceWM desktop again ;-)

Hi,
the herringbone background was replaced with the standard dodger blue sky with core logo just after the first update.
Imho some tenacity is required for newcomers. Even mouse hunters can do it.

Why not try to add lv3:ralt_switch to the line of the file de_keyboard.conf like this:
Code: (bash) [Select]
echo -e "\tOption \"XkbOptions\" \"lv3:ralt_switch,terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp\"" >> /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/de_keyboard.conf

Hi thane
... Can extension xf86-video-nv.tcz be copied over from 12.x? ...
I don't know if that can simply be copied over. I see that the  Xorg  extensions were all recompiled as were the
xf86-*  extensions. It appears  xf86-video-nv.tcz  was missed.

xf86-video-nv cannot be copied over because xorg-server has been updated - I'll add it to the to-do list.

Therefore, a dedicated extension hsetroot.tcz can take the default path /usr/local/bin

Originally, when tinyx was a part of the base, those executables were in /usr/bin - now that Xlibs is an extension, they should be in /usr/local/bin as per the tinycore convention.

Maybe make an extension that replaces hsetroot?
