(I'm just going to start adding comments as there arn't any here yet - Paul Schulz) When 0.45 compiled on a PowerMachintosh? 7300/180, without X11, the following command produces a white screen image.
pgserver# ./pgserver -v sdlfb -m 640x480x24
Compiling up apps and running then from the
will disply various widgits. Still with a black and white
theme. Need to figure out how to use themes.. no obvious help
By default, libraries are installed in /usr/local/lib. Under Debian,
this path needed to be added to
/etc/ld.so.conf and ldconfig rerun
to update the cache.
Go into the
apps directory, and run
autogen.sh and then
configure. When I then ran
make, I didn't get very far
but it was possible to go into individual applications and run
make there to produce something that would work
The following produces a cute menu test.
To use a theme, first you need to compile it (see compilation process and readme files). After theme compilation you will have .th theme file(s). Put this file(s) into some directory for example /opt/pg/themes/. Then you need to configure the pgserver, to look into this directory and load theme. Create, or edit (if it already exists) file /etc/pgserver.conf, under [pgserver]? add or change next settings:
# directory where all the themes located
themedir = /opt/pg/themes/
# name of the theme to load
themes = aqua.th
Run picogui application, and it should be show, using selected theme. If you pgserver exists with error related to the theme file: check the directories and be sure that you are not using themec (theme compile tool) under Arm based system. themec, compiled for Arm working wrong (at lease in v 0.46).
