  This is an extention package for the base installation of AmiCygnix.
  Everyone, who wants to use AmiCygnix seriously, should install it.

  This new version fixes some problems, which were still present in version 1.2
  or 1.3.

New in 1.3 r2:

  * The support of dead keys was revised again. In 1.3 r1 this feature didn't
    work properly. Additionally all dead keys - except "DeadDialytikaTonos" -
    defined in the keymap files in "KEYMAPS:" are now supported.

New in 1.3:

  * Keyboard layouts that do not conform to ISO-8859-1 standard (eg Polish or
    Greek keyboards) are now better supported. This affects programs in this
    package. An update of the previously published packages is necessary.

  * Some programs had problems with file names containing umlauts or other
    special characters. Has been largely eliminated.

  * The picture viewer "GPicView" and the file manager "ROX-Filer" can now
    display pictures in SVG and XCF (Gimp) format.

  * The PDF viewer "Xpdf" could not be launched, if the "Quick Transfer" mode
    was enabled. This is fixed now.

Included software:

  * ROX-Filer 2.10

    A comfortable file manager with support of multiple windows similar to
    Opus 5. Unfortuately the port is not finished yet, but is very useful to
    browse your files. The following viewer and player are integrated in

  * NetSurf 2.8

    A webbrowser with support of CSS2 and SSL. Javascript isn't supported yet,
    but a lot of pages can be displayed and the very good support of SSL is a
    big advantage.

  * Leafpad

    A simple text editor similar to "Notepad". Supports UTF-8 and other en-

  * GPicView 0.2.2

    A simple picture viewer.

  * Xpdf 3.03

    A viewer for PDF files.

  * Gucharmap 1.10.1

    Displays the installed fonts and you can insert special chars into other
    programs with it.

  * LXAppearance 0.5.1

    A preference editor for the GUI toolkit GTK2. You can change the GTK2 theme,
    the main font and the icon theme. Can also install new icon themes.

  * ObConf 2.0.3

    A preference editor for the window manager "Openbox".

  * Gsetroot 1.1

    A tool to change the desktop background.

  * Imlib_Config 1.9.15

    A preference editor for the gfx library imlib 1.9.15. Programs, which depend
    on this library (e.g. Amaya), will be influenced by these settings.

  * mpg123 0.61

    A player for MP3 soundfiles.

  * ogg123 1.4.0

    A player and converter for Ogg-Vorbis soundfiles.

What is X11?

  The X Window System is the base for the all graphical user interfaces on unix
  or linux systems. No matter which GUI-toolkit is used, on the lowest level
  works X11.
  The system is splitted into a server and in a client part, which is typical
  for unix like systems. The server is responsible for processing the graphics
  and handles the user events like mouse-moves or key-events. The client finally
  is an application (e.g. a paint-program or a text-editor), which is using this
  system for displaying his windows.

  What is the advantage to have this on an amiga-system? It makes it easier to
  port open source software to the amiga, because the sources for the GUI part
  can be compiled without any (or at least very few) changes.


  1. Doubleclick on the "Install" icon in the unpacked Cygnix package.
     Everything will be installed automatically. Please follow the
     instructions of the installer script.

     Please do not install by hand!!

  2. Afterwards you should reset your amiga.
