Please use "myX11Setup" for this. Run the program, choose the path of your background image and push "Save" (You must restart AmiCygnix afterwards).

You can't change the time. The panel (and other programs) are using the systems time recalculated with the unix timezone data included in AmiCygnix.

This timzone data is currently not up to date! I guess, this is your problem. I already have an updated timezone package here, which should be included in the next AmiCygnix update. If you like, you can test this package to see, if it solves your problem.

You should also check your environment variable "Cygnix/TZ", if it contains the right timezone.

Hi @cygnusEd
myX11Setup is a very nice Config. manager. I recently put KenLester's "Holiday" in the backdrops drawer.The setting for Background Pic is:
Cygnix:CygnixPPC/share/pixmaps/backgrounds

I installed OS4 SDK v53 and AmiCygnix SDK Lite this weekend. Wow, impressive! I do a lot of reading and playing with the "ACE of Penguins". Thanks for the great works! Merry Christmas to you and family.

You got a PM.

Yes, myX11Setup says, that the picture must be located in the AmiCygnix path tree. But this is not correct. The picture can be located everywhere.
If you want to store the picture somewhere else, you have to initialize it by hand. The path is stored in the environment variable "Cygnix/CYGNIX_DESKTOP_BACKGROUND" and must be in unix style.
Sorry for this.

thanks for your work on AmiCygnix/ OS4.1 and Happy holidays to you and yours

UPDATE:

Ed, downloaded the time zone manager and installed as per you instructions but don't notice any difference?..is there something else I have to do once I install the update??

also, I still can't figure out how to get a picture of mine as the workbench backdrop??where exactly can I find the environment variables??

How do you use it? I tried clicking on the icon, but all it get is "Unable to open your tool 'myX11Setup'."

I've looked for ways to run it from inside the AmiCygnix screen, but so far, no luck.

I don't know that I need to run it, but while I was setting the base up yesterday it came to a browser setting, with "/Sys/Utilities/IBrowse/IBrowse" and suggested I go with the default. I did, but that was probably dumb, because there is no such program on my machine.

I guess I could just hand edit Envarc/Cygnix/GOFFICE_BROWSER to where IBrowse is. Or why not to Netsurf?

It's used from OS4 desktop in the AmiCygnix drawer. Click it as normal icon and a GUI allows you to setup the X11 environment the way you want to run it. If AmiCygnIX was installed OK, it should work fine. =:o

Is the "E" flag set in the icon?

Photo #2 shows what the GUI looks like. Anyway, Merry Christmas there in Hawaii ! Ho, ho, ho.... =:o

(Why won't Netsurf let me use the "Quote" buuton?)

It turns out "Execute" was not checked. I wonder why?

Anyway, checking it made X11Setup work. Thanks for that.

Good idea...I think it's time I did the same thing. I've bumped into some update niggles myself!

@Snuffy
Seems to be o.k. But does "Cygnix:Start_AmiCygnix.bat" exist?

@cygnusEd
Nope, doesn't exist anywhere on the drive! When I first installed AmiCygnix (OS4.1 release) and filled out the config file and got the error, but when I used the AmiCygnix Icon and the system worked perfectly from the config file, I used that ever since until this OS Update1. I'm going do what '328gts' suggested this weekend and see what happens.

Hi @cygnusEd

In AmigaOS4 Update 1, Intuition was updated:
"Reduced video memory consumption due to improved screen handling."
From your view, how does X11 behaving to this? Since I use SDLBasic a lot, there's a very noticeable slow down in SDL. Recycling screen memory routines doing this or is it SDL architecture? Just some curious 'nose/knows poking!'

The X server writes the gfx data directly into the video memory - he doesn't use any OS render routines. Intuition is only used for message handling (mouse, keyboard, ...) and for opening the window / screen.

I really don't know - I don't know much about the SDL code.
