need a OSD for caplocks and flash issue [resolved]

Postby slinxy on Sun Nov 15, 2009 4:21 am

Hi
I just installed Gloria on to my netbook, and all is working well even the 3G card (well impressed). :D

But what I do need is an OSD to tell me when the caps lock is on as there's no led on the netbook. I also seem to have an issue in facebook poker; the only game I play, where the page wont display the table list. its just blank. I tried updating both firefox and flash playerbut no joy.

Thank you in advance...

As far as the caps lock:
sudo apt-get install lock-keys-applet

Your flash problem: Is there a problem with flash anywhere else or just this game? Have you tried installing gnash to replace the adobe version? I find it's much better on slower hardware to begin with.
If your problem has been solved, PLEASE add [SOLVED] to your subject line! It helps everyone!

thanks..

I tried installing lock keys applet but this is all a got:
Code: Select all
slinxy@HMs-NetBook ~ $ sudo apt-get install lock-keys-applet
[sudo] password for slinxy:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
lock-keys-applet is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 15 not upgraded.
slinxy@HMs-NetBook ~ $


and as a result nothing changed...
EDIT: its me, being a noob... lol I've added the applet to the taskbar now.

with the flash issue, on further investigation realised its not flash that's causing the issue but shockwave.
