Next Quirky getting closer...

April 06, 2010 — BarryK
I'm testing Quirky built with SeaMonkey 2.0.4, Openbox, Fbpanel and the kernel, and it seems very solid so far.

I spent sometime today fiddling with the settings for Fbpanel. Plinej wrote a configuration GUI for Fbpanel, but that was quite a long time ago and for an older version of Fbpanel (4.x). The GUI does not configure everything, and probably there are more features since 4.x (current version is 6.0).

I have got it working ok, but if anyone feels like enhancing the Fbpanel GUI, go for it -- grab the next Quirky first.

I made a modification to the Xorg Wizard. Someone reported, and I also have the situation with one of my monitors, that the auto-probe of the monitor returns incorrect resolutions that the monitor is capable of. I have added an extra button to enable manual choice of resolution in that situation.

Let's see, I need to upgrade a couple of packages, then the next Quirky should be good to go!
