i get this message on a some themes (West's Discovery, and Ashtefere's Ultimatum) ... some said this should be a litestep verison problem. however i believe i have the latest releases: omar's installer updated with the litestep-2006-03-30 experimental build.
maybe im looking at the wrong place for the latest thing?
or it is not a version problem
If the theme has a command in it, try this in it...
or if it doesn't, put this in windows 'run' (winkey+r)...
c:\litestep\litestep.exe !alert $resolutiony$
(change ls path if needed)
If one of the above returns your actual horizontal resolution, maybe it's a typo in the theme.
it says variable not defined
and as i mentioned, it happened on more themes reported to work ...
what is your horizontal resolution?
sorry im not sure ... desktop resolution is 1024*768
Don't know what you tell you, then. I'm running the same (omar's and last exp build) and both return my horizontal res. Pretty sure that's a var the core makes?
yea...it is a core evar.
Next question...are you running LS on top of explorer when you get the error?
Yep. Release notes say:
3. Resource Expansions
- Modified [lsapi / Message / 2000-10-18]
- Added two new variables ResolutionX and ResolutionY which is the screen height and
width in pixels, not very usefull with the current if,else implementation, but
provided for future use with expressions
Been there a looooong time. Is ResolutionX defined properly? Hard to imagine how you could have the one but not the other, unless for some reason this call is failing:
StringCchPrintf(szTemp, MAX_PATH, "%d", GetSystemMetrics(SM_CYSCREEN));
nope, it always runs it alone (at least i believe so) task manager does not show explorer at least
it means it got lost somehow?
Hmmm, are you using some other type of vwm or desktop manager? Perhaps one that came with a video card or something?
not any that i know of ... something supposed to clash with litestep?
What about resolutionx and username?
Are those defined?
I dunno - the core sets it, and although you can modify the value you can't "undefine" an evar. Very strange.
yer lost because you were on Oceanic flight 815.
i never actually was on a plane B'(
In the meantime you can go through the theme files and replace every occurence of $resolutionx$ with 1024. Not a great solution, but you won't get errors anymore.
you mean resolutiony, i presume ...
rapchee...the problem is that millions have downloaded and installed LS without this problem. There is something unique to your machine that is causing this problem. What are the "special" or "unique" applications that you run?
actually i've been using it for a while without a problem
what i could think about right now is some sh!t that my roomate recently installed, like google earth, desktop dontknow what else ...
so i think i should look for unusual resident tasks?
hrmm...try uninstalling it and see what happens. also find out what else he loaded.
I told you! Google is the devil!
Then hell must be knowing everything that's on the internet.
why is it that I get blamed for everything that goes wrong in the world?
Cuz' you da man, er, da bOi.
You should really take legal action against the writers of that horrid old book.
the problem solved with 0.24.8RC. megayays! sw33tn3s! \o/\o/\o/
