Tiny irregularities in browser..

Postby rijnsma » 24 May 2013 21:44

Browsers in SolydX work different and I don't know if this is meant to be so?

The layout of screens and fonts are not quite like in other distro's, sometimes
scrolling hangs,
(which is correctable by the way) emoticons look sometimes very small compared to text.

Chromium: in some forumcomposers (or -editors) lines of text are not selectable
the normal way: one has to double-klick on a word, go to the end of the selection,
press Shift en klick with the mousepointer. Here Firefox does it right, but I use FF and
Chromium seperately for things.
And..: the phenomena is not always present....

One can work with it, but it is a little wierd. Could this select-copy-paste-thing be a Javascript-problem?
And could I repair it? :)

I thought I had found it in a Chromium extension and I anounced it here (it wás better, I could see it only just on one site) but later it was there again. So the search goes on. :D

If you could post some comparable pictures, we could see what you mean.

It is not difficult to explain. If the thing occurs I can't select the whole text-slice, but I have to start with
only one word with a mouse dubbel-klick.
After that I have to go to the end of what I like to select, press Shift of the keyboard, click mouse
and there you have the selection. Then the next copy and paste are normal.

Like in attached file the first step: double-klick a word, second: shift + mouseklick on the end of the frase.
Selection complete (never used this, took some time :D).

I've been trying all kinds of selections in both Firefox and chromium, and didn't find anything odd.
Do you have this kind of behavior in other programs?

Sometimes these kind of issues are caused by the graphics drivers.
Please post the output of:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxx

No. And not in other distro's.
I have here PCLOS KDE 2013, LMDE Xfce, Xubuntu immediately available.

Then:
inxi -Fxx
inxi: command not found

Thank you for your patience. ;)

That's odd, inxi is installed on all SolydXK distributions. :?
You can install it from our repositories:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install inxi

It says:
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?

By the way, I can't see it (inxi) in the repository...

Can you give me the output of:

Code: Select all

cat /etc/apt/sources.list
Of course, you should point to:
deb http://packages.solydxk.nl/ solydxk main upstream import

I do have the problem here now too... Firefox is working right.

And there are more small things.
So did I just got a segmentationfault when I tried to empty the trash.
It often says that desk-icons or links in folders are 'not safe'..?!
It offers to make them executable and so I do and then everything is o.k..

Your sources.list looks good.
You have Intel graphics. That shouldn't be a problem either.
The other "small things" seem unrelated.

Did you have these problems when you ran SolydXK live?

just to add to what Schoelje is saying above: do you still have the iso you used to install that system? if so can you check the md5sum?
bliss of ignorance

No, I did not see them. But I don't test a livecd for a long period. :)
By the way, while I write and paste zerozero in this text the problem is there again
just like that. On this site.
The software version of a loose hardware contact one could say. I had not yet seen it like that.

I'm afraid I don't have the original ISO. But I have here an original livedvd.
I don't know if I can help with the MD5 numbers on it? :)

I'm sorry, I totally missed this.
If you don't have the iso anymore, you cannot check the md5sum.
On the product pages, where you can download the iso, you will find the md5sum.
When you downloaded the iso, you need to check the md5sum before you install SolydXK on your system.

I did and I remember it was right (checked with GtkHash) or else I download again.

I'm not sitting on my hands in the meantime. It is this problem I think:
http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?p=330525#p330525
Read to the bottom please. :D

So the status here is now: (I noticed it and 'spoovy' too): I can select an adress in the adressbar of Chromium (mouse-cursor changes to vertical line) and sometimes normal text-selection not possible (mouse-cursor does not change); this is the principle.

Firefox and Thunderbird are updated on each UP.
The next UP is scheduled on 6 June. Perhaps your problems are solved then.

It is no hardship or what is the word? :D
It has something to do with the mouse-software I think. The mouse is not always doing
what it should.

It's only in Chrome. I don't use Thunderbird. I like Sylpheed. :)
I've switched for the moment fully to Firefox and maybe another browser like
Midory or Seamonkey. But they dont have much extensions which is the reason
I like to use Chromium (or Chrome) and Firefox for the extensions.

But I'll wait for it.

In the meantime thank you both very much for your friendly help! ;)

I have done the last update. Large one.
But this does not change what I mentioned earlier.

In Chromium on some sites the mouse does not select a part of a sentence in the
normal way. :) (Selection in the adressbar then is normal, but it still does not work right in for example:
http://www.amsterdamsforum.nl/ or at this moment on text of the posts here . And the mousepointer does not change the right way in parts of the screen. )

In Firefox this is right.

I have been playing/experimenting with PCLOS-KDE lately and added Xfce to it so I
could see how that very nice and fast desktop does on this KDE-distro.

And guess what? I see the same 'no copy-and-paste-thing' here in Chrome (it's not
Chromium now) this time. In KDE it is not right too.
And it is known in Debian http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php?f=7&p=8417#p7143

Reason unknown yet. But be happy, it's not a (not too big) problem only in SolydXK. :D
I don't see the phenomena in Xubuntu yet. Searchin on... and it looks like it is the mousepointer, which does not do the right thing at the right time. Sometimes it's right,
sometimes not and then it stays that way.
