 607 2013-05-312017-08-26Bug Report e17 Menus Freezes after Wizard (not solved) ClosedThanatermesis
3.0 Task Description

Lastest e17, after to finish wizard go fast to the applications menu and scroll it, e17 freezes

This bug reported by AlexAnteMachina has nothing to do with composite, not even with vbox, I tried it in laptop and e17 simply gets frozen, seems like X11 is died, very strange bug! even with my libs updated without the optimize options (please somebody confirm that we have debug messages now), there’s simply no way to get a backtrace because everything is blocked (well, you can kill X11, but you lose everything)

Maybe there’s not even needed to select German language, it looks like an efreet bug

This is another bug, but seems like caused by the same reason, sometimes, and just sometimes, e17 starts looking like this (some hang in the startup of efreet, or uncomplete or similar, idk)

A restart of e17 will solve the problem, but is not a good way to start e17 of course

Another bug: if you install eltrans (here is elive in version 2.1.40), and you try to open the menus, it becomes frozen

 527 2010-01-132010-01-24Bug Report ATI driver won't work with ecomorph ClosedDragan Stojkovic
3.0 Task Description

I`m running 1.9.56 development Version on my Laptop with a X1300 Mobility radeon.
Compiz works under Ubuntu 9.10 out of the box. I use there the OSS ati driver.

On Elive there seems to be a bug with the included ati driver. I’ve tried several Notebooks with ATI graphic cards. None of them worked.
On every machine I’ve got the following message:

$> ecomorph 
ecomorph (core) - Fatal: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't going to work.
ecomorph (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
ecomorph (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

a compiz-check shows, that everything should be ok:

smbmount is required for smb-browser, but the package smbfs is not available in debian wheezy right now, i’m not sure why, maybe is replaced by the package cifs-utils, or maybe it enters back in the future (release of wheezy stable), in any of the cases i leave this report opened to know that something needs to be fixed around :), which means adapt smb-browser to the new tool or get some kind of port

 609 2013-10-312013-10-31Bug Report Internet doesn't automatically connect to wifi ClosedThanatermesis
3.0 Task Description

Seems like wifi doesn’t automatically connect when i come back from suspension and im in another location (and I enable the wifi power-button later too), i need to open the internet configurator emodule for to start/open the Network-manager applet (note that by default is removed in order to save some resources consumption and memory usage.

The question is... do we need this nm-applet running all the time so that the network will be correctly connected/updated all the time? this sounds for me non-sense since there’s a daemon of NM, the applect should be only for manual selection or configuration of things, otherwise a daemon should works a daemon.

It happens to you too ?

 645 2015-01-152017-08-27Bug Report E resolution is fucked sometimes ClosedThanatermesis
3.0 Task Description

If you run something like “berusky” (small game, which don’t works in fact), it fucks your X resolution without possibility to recover it (BIG BAD BUG)

In short it seems like to: change your E resolution, don’t restore the original one, but E saves and remebers it

We should need a way to detect that the resolution was changed by FOO, when FOO finishes and some seconds passed change the resolution to the original one if we are not on it (not sure if this is possible)

Also, is needed to save the resolution on E confs only when we select to save it, seems like there’s a trigger that saves it automatically, this is very bad :P

Notes: betatest in e19 to see if the bug is solved (and so just cherry-pick the fixes)

3.0 Task Description

Hi, sorry to have to report, I just tried to install (with a proven DVD download of E17 compiz) on a 2nd computer, Intel MB DG45FC. First problem was it would not recognize display resolution, I am using Mitsubishi Diamond Digital, wide screen (16 x 9) and factory default setting called for is 1280 x 768 at 60HZ—which is in listed choices upon installation, nor any other resolution including auto? This is a 64bit machine, I have the DVD installed OK, no problem, on a Gigabyte 32bit MB.

I kept trying, over and over and somehow was able to “force” installation after being given a choice to use a pre-existing resolution(?) Install completed, fine tune came up and stopped at: “module slamr does not exist in /proc/modules. Also, internet connect was not able to be made, no matter what I tried so I can make no correction through apt-get, Synaptic or .deb. I also got a notice that e17 economorph failed to install because of some file in libdecorate(?) was trying to overwrite an already existing file. Not being technically capable, I haven’t a clue.

But please, do not fool yourself into thinking the slamr “bub” has been corrected and gone away, it is still there.

 344 2009-02-162017-08-25Feature Request limit windows to be in the screen ClosedThanatermesis
3.01 Task Description

Could be nice if we have an e17 module to limit the windows to be in the screen limits, instead to pass over it. This is a useful feature for non-experienced users.

Note: this report has somewhere (i dont remember where) a list of features needed, like which options to have on it (like: limit the windows to be in-screen, limit the windows to be not entirely out of the screen, allow the window to be partially out, etc etc), is needed to check this list first (in hackers or in dev ? i dont remember right now)

Useful code: iirk module
