Xorg-7.7 Update
« on: February 14, 2015, 10:01:39 PM »
Several of the Xorg-7.7 group of extensions have been updated - to take advantage of this, you will need to:

* Add the libepoxy, libevdev-1.3.2 and libxshmfence extensions.

* Update the Xorg-7.7-3d, elfutils, libEGL, libGL, libdrm, libvdpau, libxcb, llvm-lib, mtdev, xf86-input-evdev, xf86-video-fbdev. xf86-video-vesa, xkeyboard-config and xorg-server extensions

* Depending on your hardware, update the xf86-input-keyboard, xf86-input-mouse, xf86-input-synaptics, xf86-input-vmmouse, xf86-input-wacom, xf86-video-ati, xf86-video-intel, xf86-video-mach64, xf86-video-modesetting, xf86-video-nouveau, xf86-video-openchrome and xf86-video-vmware extensions

Thank you so much Juanito!

A question though:

May I ask why you haven't updated glamor-egl.tcz?

Is it because glamor is now integrated in xorg-server since xorg-server 1.16?

Or why?

That's what I understood, yes.

xf86-video-{ati, intel} deps adjusted to remove glamor-egl

Something like this might be required to enable glamor, depending on your hardware:
Code: [Select]
$ cat /usr/local/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-glamor.conf
Section "Device"
        Identifier "radeon"
        Driver "ati"
        Option "AccelMethod" "glamor"
EndSection

Thanks for your effort in updating X, Juanito.
I'm hoping for improvements, too, as I am experiencing some issues with intel graphics.

After updating X related extensions through Apps and rebooting, Xorg-7.7.tcz didn't load because of some missing deps. So I tried  tce-audit fetchmissing  for the first time which didn't download anything.
Sould that usually be enough or is there anything else needed in order to generate a list of missing deps?

I manually  tce-load -w ...  any missing deps that were shown when attempting to  tce-load -i Xorg-7.7 .
OK, that worked.

Now Openbox complains about missing  libxcb-util.so.1 .
Does it need recompiling or might something else still be missing?

Working fine now.

I can now CTRL+ALT+F1 to console and back to X which didn't work before when Xorg-7.7-3d was loaded. It did freeze the system and I had to forcefully reboot. That is now fixed.

Also, Age of Empires II through WINE is now actually playable. (:

Thanks, Juanito.
(and thank you pq5190362 for requesting the update)

I'm facing some issues regarding umlauts (äöü) and other characters (¹²³ßµ°).
Any such key-press results in a question mark being printed in Aterm. Either with "fixed" or with "terminus" font (both support at least "äöü") (It's not about the € symbol - That never worked for me).

In Xfe I can type all the fancy keys (µ etc. And even €) but pressing BACKSPACE or DEL removes several characters at once. (have seen this in URxvt when attempting to configure utf8)

It does work flawlessly in the FLTK apps and Firefox, Geany.

Could that be related to the update of Xorg?
I just noticed this behavior yesterday.
I don't know what else has changed lately or what I could have "de-configured".


TC 6.1rc1
locale: LANG=C
Keyboard layout: kmap=qwertz/de-latin1


I also tried booting with bootcodes  lst=xbase.lst norestore text .

And after boot:
Code: [Select]
tce-load -i kmaps Xorg-7.7-3d openbox
sudo loadkmap < /usr/share/kmap/qwertz/de-latin1.kmap

Created:
/usr/local/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-keyboard.conf
Code: [Select]
Section "InputClass"
Identifier       "Keyboard Defaults"
MatchIsKeyboard  "yes"
Option           "XkbLayout"   "de"
#Option           "XkbVariant"  "nodeadkeys"
Option           "XkbOptions"  "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
EndSection

Have you read this, regarding aterm ??
My way to support Swedish characters for raspberry.
Have to use another font or another term app.
Terminus or Adobe Source Sans Pro is my favorites for monospaced/fixed fonts.

Aterm: http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,17945.msg108468.html#msg108468

Font: http://adobe-fonts.github.io/source-sans-pro/

Thanks

I guess you meant  -fn ?

I am 100% sure the fonts I use include said characters.

I can use URxvt and print everything exept €, by including this in  ~/.ashrc :
Code: [Select]
export LC_CTYPE=de_DE.UTF-8; printf "\33]701;$LC_CTYPE\007"
