ArchLinux packages manager for Porteus

Here is a place for your projects which are not officially supported by the Porteus Team. For example: your own kernel patched with extra features; desktops not included in the standard ISO like Gnome; base modules that are different than the standard ISO, etc...

I can move it but not enough to help. At the best I can only see 2/3 of the total size. I wish I could take a screenshot that way you could see the problem. How big is your monitor?

From the top I can only see down to where it shows internet browser I can't see the rest of it.

How big is your monitor? Your screen resolution? Your Fonts Scaling Factor?

In the Porteus menu Search box type font then click on the Fonts item found. In the Fonts window try clicking on the - sign for Text Scaling Factor. 0.90 or 0.80 might help you see the whole APorteus ISO Builder window.

"How big is your monitor?"

=======================
-Display-
Resolution : 1440x900 pixels
Vendor : (null)
Version : (null)
-Monitors-

=======================

I have tried some ideas.
But those were not good ideas.
If you know a method to make the window small, would you tell me ?

Thanks.

My monitor is about 15.6 inch.

I tried about everything and I can't make it work. It was a good try.

Thanks anyway...

neko if you change your screen resolution to get close to Jack's 1280x800 do you see the whole ISO Builder window?

Code: Select all

xrandr -s 1152x864

or

xrandr -s 1024x768

@Ed_P

xrandr -s 1152x864 didn't work and xrandr -s 1024x768 was a little better but it still didn't work. I have a question I have a HDMI output on my Laptop so can I use my 32 inch LED TV? I will have to buy a cable.

Those commands were for neko Jack, not you. But it's interesting that the lower one worked favorably for you. Try 800x600 and see what happens.

BTW Do you have a link to the ISo Builder file you are using?

The ISO Builder is inside of a ISO.Here is the link. http://www.mediafire.com/file/2koxsaf46 ... x86_64.iso

Ok Jack, I downloaded your link and booted it and I see a dozen icons on the DE but no ISO Builder one or a File Manager one or a way to shut it down!! You sure this is what you're working with?

Ok, that link is better. I tested the ISO Builder with various resolutions my machine supports and less than a 900 secondary doesn't work for the window. You need a better video card Jack. I don't think a TV will solve the problem.

To support your resolution neko could move Version to the same line as where OK/Cancel are. Also if the OK and Cancel buttons were rotated 90 degrees and put on the right side rather than on the bottom that would help. And if the Desktop options were on one line.....

Code: Select all

== desktop ==  At least 1 choice must be selected:   _ xfce    _mate    _lxqt
                  _ minilxde   _lxde   _e16   _ openbox
Anyways, there are possibilities, but they will require work.

@ Jack
A somehow funny "workaround"
start the iso-builder tool ,rotate the contents of the screen, make your selections
and rotate back to normal.

rotate to the left

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ xrandr -o left
back to normal

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ xrandr -o normal

New input window

@Jack
@Ed_P
@donald

I have changed the input window design to fit in a small screen.
It was tested in the screen which was set by the command "xrandr -s 1152x864"/"xrandr -s 1024x768" that was suggested by Ed_P.

This is the patch for "APorteus ISO Builder".

newGUI.xzm
http://www.mediafire.com/file/xkkolz82e ... newGUI.xzm

newGUI.xzm includes the shell file "/usr/local/bin/guibuildiso".
At next "ISO Builder" update, "guibuildiso" will be replaced by this new one.


Thanks a lot.
