Counter as active desktop object

Post by marodeur » Wed May 04, 2005 4:59 pm

when i'm going to set the counter as an active desktop object it shows the graphic not correctly. if i choose the counter with trans=off on the desktop the background of the counter is not shown (he is transparent). if i choose the other link no graphic is shown just a white field.

For me, I get a white box whatever options I choose.

I believe it's due to my mirror system. When a request for a graphic is received, a mirror is randomly chosen. When this happens, a header redirect request is sent back to the browser to tell it to load the appropriate mirror.

I suspect that Active Desktop is not responding to the header redirect.

At present I am working on a SuperKaramba theme for KDE users. I believe a similar program exists for Windows.

If all goes well, I'll look into a Windows version too.
