Re: Using gnome-mag as a screen inverter

Hi Cride5,

I just opened a RFE in bugzilla to keep track of this:

The problem that you have when you pass only the "-fzi 1" options
(only one quarter of the screen with a magnified portion of the
desktop) was correct some time ago as you can see in:

If you download the last version of gnome-mag (I think that they where
not packaged in the distros yet) you will only have the crosswires and
sometimes you will be able to see two mouse pointers.

You can find the last gnome-mag version in:

The stable version is 0.14.4. The 0.14.5 and 0.14.6 are unstable.

Best regards,
