Re: Watch files or How to stop corrupted prefs

@Raziel

Didn't read this bit before..

..oh, and if anyone has the same problem, please share...for me it's ENVARC:Sys/ringhio.appsprefs.xml that randomly ends up with a corrupted prefs file (together with a window on boot telling me that line xxx has some error or something, also not even with the information of what programs sends the error)

I know it's ringhio because i created a backup and i use custom sounds which always gets set back to that stupid harp (i can't hear anymore)


What version of Notifications are you using? I fixed a race condition with prefs reading code that might cause arbitrary corruption in the prefs file (or at least make it seem corrupt when it wasn't)

Slightly late to this thread but you can use my Activity monitor to monitors files and directories for changes.

@walkero

In the first instance you should set your project size according to the number of pixels you need. You can never get more 'dots per inch' than this.

As an aside the number of people that have asked me for a 300DPI image without specifying the number of inchs make me despair.

SketchBlock prints out raw postscript or eps at maximum resolution. No pixels are discarded at thsi stage. Though it is downconverted from floating point to 32bit The resulting file is nearly allways too big for my Laser Printers memory!

The GUI script that wraps this functionailty uses ghostscript to convert to PDF with the /prepress option. This is the highest resolution "standard" PDF format and impliess 300dpi for colour and greyscale and 1200DPI for mono (not really relavent here).

The full command will look like

Ghostscript:gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite "-sOutputFile=RAM Disk:test.pdf" -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress -dDEVICEWIDTHPOINTS=595 -dDEVICEHEIGHTPOINTS=842 -dQUIET -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -q T:sbps_58126

If you want to vary from this you can ofcourse save to Postscript and run your own tweeked version of the command.

Actually I have sent images for printing. Here is one I got done last year.Resized Image


There is a postscript print in the Project Menu. The window that opens offers Postscript EPS or PDF

PDF is what I use to send of images to CD packaging printers etc , and also what I use to print directly via ftp on my hp m251n laser printer.

The page is set for default A4 portrait size (in points) but can be changed.


For the case of the picture aboth the website allowed up loading of a jpeg. I think I needed to use Chrome on an alternate OS to do it though.

Hi all,

Been a while since I did a SketchBlock Video, this time I've done a real time one, rather than a timelapse, occasionally people have asked for this so now you have 43 minutes of me painting some sweet peas to watch

Read about it and watch it here:

https://webplus.broad.ology.org.uk/blo ... enuyear=2021&menumonth=07

If you like what you see SketchBlock pro 3.4 is available from AmiStore or direct from myself (send me an email...)

@NinjaCyborg

It really doesn't make that much difference. Unless your compiling with C++ in which case you might need the later gcc for the more recent c++ features. The OS though is almost all C.

When it comes to "sharing" all the builds are available at the adtools project.

Just on the way out, so can't do any tests myself, but to be clear, once you have clicked, is you cursor now at the end of the document? And is the pasted text added where you would expect (irrespective of how it displays?)

Is the horizontal scroll option enabled?

Not really sure what athreads are?

There's no particuar reason not use pthreads of a projects you are using depends on them. It will much simpler than trying to create your own threading system using CreateNewProc() and friends.

It most Likely started out as threads.library perhaps changes were made which made it even more posix like so to make it more relevant to people they changed the name to pthreads for posix threads...


Nice try But threads was always a port of the pthreads API. It's author Thomas Frieden I think, decided to abandon it and replace it with new port reworked from scratch.

Quote:

and the final test is to move the current threads.library to for instance sys:storage and do a soft link from pthreads.library to threads.library and try to run with something that demands threads.library


Yikes! Don't even think about doing that, libraries have different names for good reason! They are not compatable in anyway. Actually ramlib expects the libraries name and filename to match so it might not even load, but if it did it would crash 100%!

Re: Difference pthreads.library/threads.library

threads.library is part of an early port of pthreads.

It had issues and was discontinued in favour of pthreads.library, which was rewritten from scratch

However, some software that uses pthreads and hasn't been rebuilt againast the newer version might require threads.library

One example is perl 5.8 (but not later versions) which you might possibly have installed in paralelle with later version of perl if you like playing "Frozen".

It's completely safe to have both threads.library and pthreads.library installed at the same time. (they have different names and won't get confused).

Reading through this I think the issue was not that the update didn't apply with Enhancer:C/Version installed but that when they came to verify the update by typeing VERSION timesync.library it couldn't find the the version of the library.

@Arthas

Thanks for buying SketchBlock, hope you have fun with it.

SketchBlock uses the public screens system.

Check that the public screen name is set to SketchBlock (open menu->settings->edit). It's the default so it should be.

Open the systems screens prefs SYS:Prefs/Screens and create one called "SketchBlock", make sure it's set to open and close automatically.

As an advanced step the Themes drawer in the sketchblock directory contains a gui.prefs and pallete.prefs file to make the window colurs and a couple of system gadgets match the sketchblock KS gadget theme.

These are setup by selecting the use custom setting file checkbox and setting the paths to the file as

GUI tab <path to sketchblock>/Themes/KS/Presets/gui.prefs
Pallette tab <path to sketchblock>/Themes/KS/Presets/palette.prefs

These last two steps are only needed if using the KS theme, if using AISS theme then just use "Like Workbench" for all screen settings.

Now when you start SketchBlock the next time it should open on it's own screen.

Been meaning to ask, I'm thinking of changing my script http://os4depot.net/share/video/misc/thumbnailmaker.lha from ArtEffect to Sketchbook, but I couldn't figure out the arexx command to load an image into the clipboard?


Thanks for the question. It's actual done by the EXPORTLAYER function. It's essentially a save via the builtin datatypes saver which the target set to the clipboard.

So to save the current layer to the clipboard you do:

EXPORTLAYER CLIP 0

More info at

https://www.broad.ology.org.uk/amiga/s ... ck/arexx.html#EXPORTLAYER

To do the opposite ie "paste" in a layer from the clipboard you do

IMPORTLAYER CLIP 0

https://www.broad.ology.org.uk/amiga/s ... ck/arexx.html#IMPORTLAYER

In both cases CLIP is a keyword that specifies the clipboard.device UNIT number.

Updates to SketchBlock documentation.
Home away from home
Home away from home


After a couple of welcome questions from users I decided to do a little work on updating the documention for SketchBlock. In particular I focused this update on the selection tools, that allow masking off areas of the image / layer when painting and performing other operations.

https://www.broad.ology.org.uk/amiga/s ... block/selectiontools.html

SketchBlock Pro is available to buy from AmiStore, or if you have problems with that can be bought direct from myself. (Send me an email...)

Feel free to ask questions here, point out any typos etc

If you want to build python scripts with GUIs then my ProAction is the best bet on AmigaOS4. It's free too.

Heck if your really really keen / insane you can actuall use blender a GUI system.

Very off topic yes.

Maybe if I had time to experiment with a build against gl4es instead of minigl.


How much beneft there would be from that I really don't know.
