Re: Frist Impressions of GNOME 3's Zoom Feature

Hello again!

I installed Ubuntu on may laptop using Wubi within Windows XP, and I was just testing Orca and GNOME 3 a few moments ago. I decided that I should try out the Zoom feature as well to see if the lag which I mentioned in previous e-mails existed there as well. I am glad to say that it did not exist. I will have to do some more testing on my desktop machine to see if the lag was caused by Shell extensions or by the graphics card. I just want to reiterate how amazed I am with how things work. The magnifier ran very smoothly on my laptop, equal to if not better than the Compiz eZoom plugin did. I only used Compiz for magnification and the negative inverse feature, and I am finding that I am not missing it as much as I did when I first started out.

Thanks for all of the help which was provided concerning this issue.

Take care.

Today I finally had some time to test out a live USB Linux Mint 12 system. I
am sure that this is probably not a native setting in GNOME 3 by default,
but an extension called noa11y was enabled by default. Once I turned this
off I set the keyboard shortcuts for the magnifier and gave it a run. I
found it to be very smooth in a live environment. With or without it, GNOME
3 was very quick and responsive, except for one area thus far while the
magnifier is running.

When I open up the Activities Overview (I am trying to get the proper terms
for different elements down :) ) and click on the Applications tab, the
magnifier gets very jumpy. It does not stop functioning,but it has a big lag
when panning, and I am somewhat certain that this is probably due to the big
number of application icons which are presented. When I select a category,
such as Internet, the magnifier pans smoothly again. I am not saying this to
complain as I am very happy with how well things just worked, and I am sure
that this si something which will factor itself out in time.
Did the lag happen every time you opened the Activities Overview or
just the first time? Even in GNOME 2, the first time the menu is
displayed seems to take a few seconds in many cases.

Also, it might be worth trying after you've disabled all the GNOME
Shell extensions (and reloaded GNOME Shell) to make sure it's actually
a GNOME Shell problem.
