    Weird display config problem

    Thanks Jeff. I'll do some further investigation.

    Weird display config problem

    Thanks for the suggestions waiter. But no luck. I have a workaround that removes the issue anyway. I just delete the files during session startup, before lightdm is started and no more problems. It would be kinda nice though to know the process by which the e_randr.cfg files are created so that I could investigate the root cause. Anybody able to help out there?

    Weird display config problem

    I'm not exactly sure what you need, however I'm running an Intel i3 with integrated graphics. The output of lshw is as follows. *-display description: VGA compatible controller product: 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller vendor: Intel Corporation physical id: 2 bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0 version: 09 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: msi pm vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom configuration: driver=i915 latency=0 resources: irq:41 memory:f7800000-f7bfffff memory:e0000000-efffffff ioport:f000(size=64) Any dmesg lines containing either "vga" or "i915" are as follows.

Also the output of "sudo lsmod | grep i915" is as follows. i915 783485 2 i2c_algo_bit 13413 1 i915 drm_kms_helper 52758 1 i915 drm 302817 3 i915,drm_kms_helper video 19476 1 i915 Anyway, I hope that's the sort of info you were after. If not just let me know.

    Weird display config problem

    I recently upgraded to a new PC by installing Bodhi 3.1 and then updating with a backup from my old PC. This of course did not go very smoothly. However, I've managed to sort out all of the resulting issues except for one strange one. When I boot the new PC I get the logon screen ok but when I enter my user details and login I get no X display. If I start a tty I can see that the system is running ok, just no display. After playing around with xrandr with no luck at all, I started deleting enlightenment directories in my home directory. Through a process of elimination I've found that the culprit is the e_randr.cfg files in <home>/.e/e/config/bodhi. If I delete these files before I shut the system down then the display comes up normally on the next startup. Unfortunately that's as far as I can go on my own with this. I need someone with a more in depth knowledge of the inner workings of enlightenment to shed some light on what the issue might be. So it would be great if someone can point me in the right direction or offer some insight as to what I can do to fix this. Thanks in advance.

    Themes e19

    Thanks Duma. Now that I know what my options are I think that I'll just go back to using E17 on my Bodhi 3 install. Far too complicated to modify an E19 theme. It seems that Bodhi's default WM will be a version of E17 soon anyway. Once again, thanks for your help.

    Themes e19

    Hi Agust and Duma, First of all a big thank you for all the excellent theme work you guys do. But I was hoping that you may be able to help me with something. I have an older PC running e17 with the "A-Black-Nostrum" theme, which I believe is one of yours Agust. I now have a newer PC running Bodhi 3.0 and am using the Radiance theme on that. The thing is, I quite like the industrial look window borders in the old theme (see image). Is there a way to recompile the Radiance theme (or any other e19 theme for that matter) so that it would have that window border in it? Thanks in advance for any assistance, even if it's just to let me know that it's not possible.

    How to save/restore theme colors

    Hi bmentink. I had that problem also. It turns out the compiler doesn't know where to find that font. I did a "find" search for that font file and then ran the compiler with the "-fd" option (from the compiler help output) and included the path to the "ttf-ubuntu-font-family ". It then compiled successfully.

    [Solved]Window focus issues

    Hi Kuuko, Well, once again it's taken me a while to get back to this. But I am happy to report that, thanks to your very helpful advice, the window focus issue has been resolved and I have a working pinball simulator that boots up into Bodhi and displays the list of installed tables. The window focus issue was resolved by minimizing the list window when a table is selected (win.Iconified = True) and the restoring it when the table is exited (win.Iconified = False) as per your suggestion above. So in the end the solution was quite simple, just not too obvious. So once again, thanks for your help (you too Jeff, as I've also used a Timer, as suggested by you). Now I just have a few niggly hardware issues to sort out and I'll be a happy little pinballer.

    [Solved]Window focus issues

    Hi Jeff and Kuuko, Thanks for all your help with this so far. As a result of your advice I've been able to successfully detect when the wine app terminates. However, when I try to set focus on my interface window using win.activate() nothing happens, as you warned might be the case (ignored by the WM). I even tried deleting the list when the selection is made and then recreating it after the wine app terminates just on the remote chance that that might get the attention of the WM, but alas still no luck. Do you have any further suggestions on how the WM might be able to be signalled to give focus to my window?

    [Solved]Window focus issues

    Hi Kuuko, Sorry I haven't responded for a while but I haven't had any time for this project lately. I'm afraid my knowledge of PyEFL is quite basic at this stage. I wonder if you could elaborate at all on how I would use a "blocking call". Or point me to the required documentation or examples. Thanks.

    [Solved]Window focus issues

    Hi Kuuko, Thanks for your response. Unfortunately detecting when the pinball window closes is the issue. As I'm just making a system call to run the wine command there's not really any connection between the Elementary app and the resulting wine window. So as I suspected, it looks like elementary is not appropriate for this case. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to go back to using a shell script. Not as pretty but will do the job. Thanks again.

    [Solved]Window focus issues

    Hi, I have been playing around with running pinball simulations under linux using Wine to run Future Pinball. I decided that an interesting project might be to have a dedicated machine just for this purpose and be able to operate it by just using some buttons mounted in a box (configured to send various keystrokes to the PC) with a screen on top (sort of like a real pinball machine). The idea was to have to PC boot up into a menu listing the available pinball tables. The user would then use the buttons mounted on the box to scroll through a list of available pinball tables and select the required table and have it load. I decided to have a go at using EFL and Elementary to make the UI. I've managed to get to the point where the PC boots into the app that displays a window containing a list of tables. And I can successfully select and start a table, which runs in it's own window. The problem I'm having now though, is that once I have finished playing that table and exit it, the window containing the table list does not have focus, even though it is the only window being displayed. Of course if I click on it with the mouse then all is good. But the dedicated PC won't have a mouse. Now I'm just a hacker and I hardly know anything about programming or how Elementary operates "under the hood". But if anybody who actually knows what they're doing could offer some advice, even if it's to tell me that what I want to do is not possible, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.
