Hi All,

There is an issue with WebP on PowerPC. Sometimes you get washed out images. Wart Hog Matt has a workaround for this issue.

I tested it today and it works! :-)

  1. Code: Select all
    about:config
  2. I confirmed 'I promise to be careful!'
  3. I searched for 'image.http.accept'
  4. I double-clicked on 'image.http.accept'
  5. I set the value of 'image.http.accept' to 'image/jxr,image/png,image/;q=0.8,/;q=0.5'
  6. I reloaded the problematic website. It's very important to reload the website because if you don't do it, then it only opens the website from the cache.

I successfully tested it on the following Linux PPC distributions:

  • Fienix PowerPC 32-bit (X1000)
  • MATE PowerPC Remix/ubuntu MATE 17.04 32-bit (X1000)
  • openSUSE Tumbleweed 20170924 PPC64 (X1000)
  • ubuntu MATE 16.04.5 LTS PowerPC 32-bit (X1000 and X5000)
  • Fedora 27 Server PPC64 (X5000)
  • Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS PowerPC 32-bit (X1000 and X5000)
  • Debian Sid PowerPC 32-bit (X1000)

Many thanks to Wart Hog Matt for this workaround! :-)

Christian

If Arctic Fox has another font in the menus and dialogue boxes than the desktop environment, then you have to create the file .fonts.conf in the home directory.

Code: Select all
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<fontconfig>
<match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="rgba" >
   <const>rgb</const>
  </edit>
</match>
<match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="hinting" >
   <bool>true</bool>
  </edit>
</match>
<match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle" >
   <const>hintfull</const>
  </edit>
</match>
<match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="antialias" >
   <bool>true</bool>
  </edit>
</match>
</fontconfig>


If this file exist, then Arctic Fox uses the font configuration from the desktop environment.

We don't have any plans to release a live DVD because we have some USB images. It's easier to copy an image to an USB stick and boot from.
