Topic: Kongregate / Bug in Streamline

There’s always been a bug in every browser where you can pull the mouse out… Don’t cheat, it’s not cool.

Or use Photoshop if you have the full version. Photoshop is the best for me, since they’re easy to understand a lot more than Gimp and Paint.net.

Right, because if he had $800 software, he’d be trawling for free software…

Topic: Technical Support / Chat Frame Doesn't Load on Some Pages

Originally posted by Ventero:

Hm, strange. There’s nothing special about these pages, so I don’t see why the chat shouldn’t load exactly there. Also I couldn’t reproduce it in my VM with any Chrome-version….

When did you first notice that problem? Does the error-console show any errors when loading these pages?

Aaand does Chrome allow editing the page’s source on the fly? If so, try removing the whole

<div class="user_connection">

(including any child-nodes)

I’ll test these after I take another nap… I had to go about two days without sleep, and now I can barely think.

Also: Did you take a look at the date of your bug report/the version of the patch? It’s for FF1.0.2, from June 05… And since Launchpad says “Fix released”, it’s more than likely not this bug :P

Questio to ickyuk: Did you put any plugins into the plugin-folder of the 32bit-Fx yet?

Yeah, I noticed the date on that – but interestingly enough, the fix still worked (at least for me). It’s worth it for him to give it a try…

Oh. Well, did you try completely removing Chrome + all profiles/settings/etc. and reinstalling it? :X

Yes.

From the bug-report you linked:

This bug was fixed in the package ia32-libs – 2.7ubuntu5

2.7ubuntu5 got shipped with Jaunty :P

(And to correct my statement above: Apparently there has been an update for ia32-libs (2.7ubuntu5 to 6), but this one should’ve been installed automatically if the automatic updates haven’t been disabled manually – and even then, as ickyuck posted here, he already got the latest version :P)



And the thread you linked isn’t really related either, since ickyuk’s error messages about wrong ELFclass of the gio-modules isn’t what’s causing the crash (since I get the same errors without any notable problems :P). Sure, it’s a bug (reported here), but that one shouldn’t be causing the X System error. Maybe I’m wrong and it is causing the error, but then there’s not much you can do except wait for Karmic :P

Took a delicious 30 minute nap, feeling a lot better!

The X Window crash is likely not a bug in Firefox, but rather, in how Flash is being loaded. I managed to reproduce it on my system. Adding XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 to my Firefox starting script fixed the issue.

EDIT: A quick Google search confirmed my solution, and even linked to a quickpatch that essentially does the same thing.

May be an error in ia32-libs.

Try https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/source/ia32-libs/bug/362939 for more information?

EDIT: This link may also be of interest : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1199878&page=3

I’ll boot to 64-bit Ubuntu and figure it out if necessary later.

I’m not running any usercripts – I’ve tried running it in a clean profile already, same problem persists. This is 3.0.193.2, by the way.

Recently, I heard that you could no longer have your name changed except in extreme situations. Why is this?

That’s not recent – that’s old – and it’s because the Kongregate Support team got tired of a slue of username change requests. Unless you have an offensive name, you have to remake your account.

Cleared your cache yet? Does it happen all the time when you load HL2/Music Catch 2? If so, does it happen with other browsers?

Yes, I’ve cleared my cache. No, it doesn’t happen with other browsers. Yes, it happens all the time on Chrome.

Ah, I should have read that he was on Jaunty…

EDIT: Wow, I just realized what I posted… too tired. I meant for him to figure out which firefox, some of the versions don’t cope well with Jaunty… Although I assume you gave him the proper Jaunty version, from the Ubuntu repo?

Do a ‘which ia32-libs’, figure out your vers.

Topic: Technical Support / Chat Frame Doesn't Load on Some Pages

As you can see, the Chat Frame doesn’t load. This only happens with some games – Hedgehog Launch 2 and Music Catch 2 are the only two I’ve noticed specifically so far.

Anyone have any idea what causes this?

Ah, what’s Collabs? Looks kind of like a DeviantArt-Lite, with a little networking thrown in the mix.

Hello friend and Romans!

I’ve finally returned to Kongregate, after a long break. Can anyone bring me up to date on any major changes in the last six months or so?

It’s good to be back.

Alright, I packed it up. I need to modify a few things, but hopefully I’ll be able to post a preview next weekend.

Thursday’s Thanksgiving, and Friday’s my birthday, but I should have some time Saturday morning.

I just changed the silver ‘default’ one to red, but I guess it’s okay to use green for the ‘verified’ and blue for ‘secure’.
I’ll try to make something for the other icons.

Malachi, I don’t know if you already did another ‘contents’ icons to replace the RSS one, at least is something more to add while the ideas for new icons don’t come. =P

Ah, alright then.

I’ll get everything packaged up, and post a preview ASAP!

Sorry for the slow response – I’ve been absolutely swamped in work.

Well, I left Aidan and Malachi whispers, but they kind of seem to have dissapeared… The lack of art has brought us to a grinding halt.

You’re not supposed to share your account.

I feel that Kongregate should have at least one, if not more, rooms available where using caps considered the “norm”, for the visually impaired Kongregate users.

I know that this may cause some difficulties, however it shall also have its advantages.

Just a suggestion.

Those of us whom are visually impaired, will sincerely appreciate it.

sincerely,
