 very slow

 by ph4nt0m on: Dec 29 2003

This screensaver is very slow on my machine - it's probably my video card (because I have sufficient memory and a 1.5GHz CPU). But be warned it may run like a dog.

Tuxsaver needs 3D hardware acceleration.
I have a Geforce2 and tuxsaver works with an avarage frame rate of 15-20 frames per seconde.

*Tuxsaver won't run fast enough without a 3D card
*I think a TNT2 card isn't fast enough
*A geforce2 or better will be just fine
*An ATI radeon 8500 or better is fast enough, I think
*Don't forget to install the 3D drivers (nvidia.com and ati.com)

It also is very slow an a P4 with 1 GB RAM and ATI 9000, 3D drivers are installed.

And it's a pity it doesn't run on machines without 3D card :( It's so cute :)

 Can't find the saver

After I installed tuxsaver I switched my menu style to KDE and then back to MDK default. Now all my screensavers are gone. When I search for tuxsaver, I see the tuxsaver directory. But it's gone from the list. I can't re install from the rpm, cauz it says this package is already installed. How can I get the tuxsaver back?

I once had the same problem with another screensaver. It is a mandrake-specific problem, it has to do with the way mandrake updates his menu i think.

You can try to run 'update-menus' --->
*open konsole (see menu or ALT+F2 and enter "konsole")
*enter "update-menus"
*restart KDE
*does it work??

maybe try to reinstall tuxsaver
*open konsole (as listed above)
*go to the directory where tuxsaver is located (cd /nameofdirectory's/)
*type "su" (+give root/administrator passwoord)
*type "rpm -U tuxsaver-1.0-1mdk.i586.rpm --force"
---> because of force option, you can install it over your 'already-installed' version of tuxsaver

 No Sound

 by daphreak on: Apr 19 2004

Hi !

I have no sound running the screensaver. The strange thing is, I get no errors at all. It says playing Ocean.wav (I think it actually means Ocean.ogg, just the message didn't get changed yet), but there's no sound at all.

This is what I did/tried:

- I did not forget to unmute my soundcard, .mp3s play fine.
- Sound is of course enabled in the setup of the screensaver.
- Installed the .deb-package. Works perfect, but no sound.
- Enabled arts. Without arts, there's of course no sound. However with arts, there neither is. The test-sound in the control center works, so does xine with arts-plugin, and artsplay with .ogg-files.
- Removed the .deb-package and compiled from source. artsc-config is found. Works perfect again, just no sound.

As said above, there's no error message when running tuxsaver. Here's the output from playing Ocean.wav:

worldtime: 0.02
wavefile tuxsaver/sounds/Ocean.wav
playing wavfile /usr/share/apps/tuxsaver/sounds/Ocean.wav

I also tried to decode Ocean.ogg to Ocean.wav, in case tuxsaver really means .wav and not .ogg.

Any idea ?

I don't have sound either.
I never noticed because I never use the ocean sounds.

I will discuss the matter with my brother (the project leader)

If necessary we will publish a new tuxsaver release
(with new stories and islands btw)

sorry about the late reply

I already have developed a cowboy-like island where TUX can walk on.

But the thing is:
In tuxsaver setup you can change the island but tux does the same things on every island.
So when I develop a story where TUX rides on his favorit lizard, he will also ride on his lizard on the SNOW-ISLAND. Which isn't logical.
or isn't that important?)

I don't know if my cowboy-like island is already included in the current release.
If not I will ask my brother (the project leader) to publish a new version of tuxsaver with the nex island included.

My name is Toon Muylkens, Koen is my brother. He is the project leader of tuxsaver but he doesn't have much time now to work on tuxsaver.

The site of tuxsaver is down. But i have made a new one.

The link above is still the old one, i will ask my brother to change that but he is on vacation at the moment.

Have fun with Tuxsaver!

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
