opera browser low graphic quality

Post#1 by noobTeus » 08 Nov 2013, 20:07

Hello,

I'm new to Porteus.
I've installed it in harddisk last week with LXDE Desktop environment.
I selected Opera during iso download. Graphics of all programs looks nice except Opera web browser. I attached a photo, where other apps/desktop's colors are alright but Opera's not.

How to fix this?

Thanks.

Maybe you need some special cheatcode for your graphic card or try load during boot only 000 to 004 modules without changes and then activate opera. I use also lxde and have opera icon in notification area. What opera you are using, from where you have downloaded opera? :unknown:

Where can find those cheatcodes?

These are in the base directory, its graphics same since install (&/or in Live):
000-kernel.xzm 001-core.xzm 002-xorg.xzm 003-lxde.xzm 04-opera.xzm

Opera from http://build.porteus.org/

these cheatcodes are kernel parameters (look at wiki page of arch distro), but I don't know what's wrong. For example for google chrome and nvidia graphic card I need nvidia driver to load videos. Maybe you should go with this way to find solution if you have nvidia, ati, dual or something not typical.

@ noobTeus
Hi
Looking at your screenshot it seems that opera is changing blue<=>red.
I had this once or twice with vlc.player or pdf-viewers.
I don't know/use opera but go into the preferences and look if you can
find a option named "use hardware accelaration".turning this on/off may help.

Will check arch wiki, thanks.

Tried Enable Hardware Acceleration=1 or 0 in operaprefs.ini file, no luck yet. anything else I should try :)

@noobTeus
few things to try:
a) proprietary nVidia/AMD drivers if your GPU supports them
b) boot to 'Always Fresh' mode and check if issue persist
c) try KDE4 desktop and check opera there (maybe its qt theme issue)
please let us know if any of above worked for you.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Its kinda hard for me to fix. So, as an alternate I installed Firefox. It's enough for my web browsing. :oops:

Apology for belated reply.

Thanks all.
