    COMPOSITE + Edgy Eft ONLY!!!!!

    Make sure Composite is enabled/running AND YOU ARE RUNNING EDGY EFT

    Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite" "Enable"
    EndSection


    Should be in your xorg.conf file. Assuming your graphics driver can run Composite. Most can. If you are having trouble look elsewhere . Careful about moding the xorg.conf as you can screw things up on your display.


    1) unzip the folder
    2) run "sudo make install" (if this doesn't work, use sudo apt-get install build-essential"
    3) run "/usr/local/bin/magnifier --ignore-composite=0 -f -m --smooth-scrolling"

    I am keeping the deb away until this becomes more stable and edgy becomes more stable....happy testing![/QUOTE]

    one kinda neat thing you can do is have some animated graphics runnign with this. You should see the compositing engine keeping up great wit the se!!!

    Everything seems to be running pretty well over here. I still need to sdo some testing with the events + at-spi layer

    Hello, Jason.

    I'm not sure what I did wrong, but upon running
    Code:
    make install
    I receive the following:
    Code:
    bob@bandgc:~/Programs and Utilities/Accessibility/gnome-mag/gnome-mag-0.14$ make install
    Making install in idl
    make[1]: Entering directory `/home/bob/Programs and Utilities/Accessibility/gnome-mag/gnome-mag-0.14/idl'
    make[2]: Entering directory `/home/bob/Programs and Utilities/Accessibility/gnome-mag/gnome-mag-0.14/idl'
    make[2]: Nothing to be done for `install-exec-am'.
    test -z "/usr/local/share/idl/gnome-mag-1.0" || mkdir -p -- "/usr/local/share/idl/gnome-mag-1.0"
     /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 'GNOME_Magnifier.idl' '/usr/local/share/idl/gnome-mag-1.0/GNOME_Magnifier.idl'
    /usr/bin/install: cannot remove `/usr/local/share/idl/gnome-mag-1.0/GNOME_Magnifier.idl': Permission denied
    make[2]: *** [install-idlDATA] Error 1
    make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/bob/Programs and Utilities/Accessibility/gnome-mag/gnome-mag-0.14/idl'
    make[1]: *** [install-am] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/bob/Programs and Utilities/Accessibility/gnome-mag/gnome-mag-0.14/idl'
    make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
    Am I doing something incorrectly?

    This was done in the final release fo Edgy.

    Thanks and take care.

    Hi,

    make install alter system files, so we must run it with sudo:

    #: sudo make install

    and then type the super user password.

    Best regards,
    Carlos.

    You can view a screenshot of a full-screen 4x magnification with bilinear-interpolation here:

    Hi Jason,

    I followed all of your steps as described and I am still getting a "no make rule" error. Is there anything I'm missing?

    Hello, guys!

    Sorry...but I'm having the same problem as StevenKannel. Even with sudo I still have the same problem. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for all the help.

    Take care.
