anyone help me enclose the arrows in one small box?

=====
Organization: Thought Unlimited.  Public service Unix since 1986.
Of_Interest: With 28 years  of service  to the  Unix  community.

I've been at this this before noon; bushed.  it compiles as-is with 
GTK 2.0 but if you use 3.0 you need to comment out the lines around 
+47.

since nobody out there in GTK land can help I  am going back to the wayi
did most of the program.  brrute force.  I figure if I can cram the 
up and down arrows into a small square then I will be able to expand the 
TOPLEVEL qindow into something like 850 by 1500 and put my text.[i].txt
into the large rectange ...  go from there.

thanks in advance, y'all.

gtk3 question.

=====
Organization: Thought Unlimited.  Public service Unix since 1986.
Of_Interest: With 27++ years  of service  to the  Unix  community.

I'm working on a "typing-to-speech" program for the speech impaired.
it works but several months ago I saw how it couple be improved greatly.
the problemm is that I don't know where to post my question to get the
right kind of help.

the program is named "vbc"; it uses C, GTK3+, and gvim.  I use 
"/usr/bin/aplay" for the voice.  anybody on this list know where I can
ask for help?  I'm at roughtly version 0.1a right now and need help with
all the gvim windows if there are too many instances of gvim cluttering 
the screen.

[[FWIW, I do use vbc because my speech is impaired and family or friends
can't understand what I'm saying.  this is a "zeus-send" when I'm really
burned out!!]]

thanks in advance for any suggestions.

google PDF file won't write to "plain-text"...

=====
Organization: Thought Unlimited.  Public service Unix since 1986.
Of_Interest: With 27++ years  of service  to the  Unix  community.

	folks,

	it never occurred me to *ask* anybody about "real PDF" (that I
	can translate into standard text {like ASCII} and also view
	online with an open-source pdf viewer), and what I have come 
	to think of as bastardized-PDF that while I can view online,
	I can't convert to ordinary text.  I don't care about font
	types or bold or italic.  I have found at least one Google 
	PDF file that I can read with xpdf, okular, and other pDF 
	viewers, but won't port from pdf to ASCII, or anything close
	to "Txt."

	anybody know what's going on?  are there work-arounds?

	thanks in advance.

Looking for a genral web/app dev mailing list in the area

I am looking to move to Seattle and searching for a web/app dev mailing list to get a better idea of the types of tools and interests people have in town.

 On my local lug there are several people that also belong to some dev mailing lists, I hope there is some similar overlap here and people might have suggestions.

Thanks,
Purcell

wanna learn more about docker?

sorry for the last minute notice. I am giving a talk on Docker tomorrow at Dev9's office in Kirkland in case folks are interested. Docker is one of the most popular open source projects out there and provides an easy way to work with Linux Containers leading to very lightweight virtualization capabilities. If anyone's using Vagrant think of it as similar tech but a whole heckuva lot faster and with some other special features.


cheers,

full screen image viewer with many transition effects?

I am looking for a full screen image viewer that has many transition 
effects (like fading one image into the next, or sliding the image from 
a corner into the full screen).

An example of many transition effects is glslideshow from the 
xscreensaver-gl package. But it is a background display software and not 
an image viewer. It has awesome effects, but I still see my window 
manager taskbar on screen while I want a full-screen to cover 
everything.

I also tried:

gliv has a simple fade. It doesn't exit when complete but I can manually 
stop it when done.

pqiv has a simple fade, but won't do the fade if the following 
image is a different size.  It doesn't exit when finished which won't 
work for me as I won't be able to easily know when to stop it 
(especially when using the shuffle option).

gthumb  but version I have with my Ubuntu 12 LTS doesn't have the 
transition effects (so I didn't try the transition effects). Sometimes 
crashes at start (seg fault but I didn't research yet), but still works 
other times.

feh doesn't appear to have any transition effects. It does have awesome 
caption feature where it will superimpose a caption over the bottom of 
the image -- each caption is a separate .txt file. (The --cycle-once 
feature is good too.)

Imagemagick has lots of morphing and transition effect offerings, but 
they seem to be too slow to use in real-time (I guess I could just 
generate a video from it) and too much time involved for me to script it 
up. (Any quick ideas would be appreciated though.)

I never used libreoffice for it as I don't know how to import a numerous 
photos and I don't want to create the slideshow manually, one image at a 
time.  I also didn't use imgv because wasn't in my package collection. I 
did install variety but it crashed immediately and I didn't try to 
troubleshoot it.

I also plan to play some audio but not in any sequence. I will just have 
a shell script background the audio player.

Any suggestions of an easy full-screen image viewer software to try with 
various transition effects?

Thanks,

  Jeremy C. Reed
