I posted this on the forum hoping someone had an answer, but didn't.
The problem is:
xgalaga version 2.0.34-r2
The Spacebar doesn't work for the User. Works fine as
Doesn't appear to be an permissions problem, cause the user owns the binary
and is in the group.
Trying to install a 1.4rc1 system. While waiting for for something to compile, I
Spacebar firing works as User in the 1.4rc1 system using Gcc3.2.
So went back to the 1.2 system and unmerged and re-emerged xgalaga and
spacebar firing still doesn't work for the 1.2 system.
I would say forget it and just use it on the 1.4rc1 system, but that isn't going
Using flags on 1.2 system:
CFLAGS="-march=i686 -O3 -pipe"
CXXFLAGS="-march=i686 -O3 -pipe"
Using flags on 1.4rc1 system:
CFLAGS="-mcpu=athlon -O3 -pipe"
Hope this helps solve this dilemma.
CXXFLAGS="-march=i686 -O3 -pipe"
Ignore the extra: CXXFLAGS="-march=i686 -O3 -pipe"
on the end, mistake.
Just thought of something so tried it out.
XGalaga will work fine for the User in Gnome, but not KDE.
When I posted before that I had it working in 1.4rc1 system, I was
trying Gnome out. I still have it on the system so tested it out.
Hope this helps.
sorry, i don't have kde to reproduce this bug, other game-team guy do it.
Debian's patch to this fixes this issue. Basically, before the patch, the
spacebar works IF you have numlock turned OFF. Annoying, and upstream should
really start maintaining this package, but oh well.
I confirm. Thanks, at least a work around.
thx dad ;)
i havent been back to my desktop computer for about 2 weeks so i wasnt able to test this ;)
Looks like the problem taken care of even with the numlock on for
the new ebuild. I don't have any sound for some reason, but the bug
yes, the new ebuild was designed to fix the keyboard issue. The sound issue is
one I am not sure of, but I'll investigate into, if the games team does not.
Does sound work as root?
I am compiling the security update for kde so could only do it with
kdesu right now. And with that sound didn't work! I don't think it
will make a difference, but will change to root login and try it after the
update of kde is done and I put modutils-2.4.20 back from 2.4.22 so
my usb mouse works.
Okay, tested it out. Noticed when logged out of user to login in as root, that
xgalaga sounds started. Pretty funny, it actually saved the audio even after
hours of recompiling the new kde. This was before actually got to login screen,
then you get the normal arts not working will use /dev/null when starts up Kde.
Rebooted to clear everything and start fresh.
Tested as root from login and same as user. Sounds only when logout.
Using arts for sound deamon.
does sound not work at all or only for the game ?
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/alsa-guide.xml <- for general sound setup in ALSA
Don't use alsa. Sound works fine (arts)! Just like I heard your email come in on
I did hear xgalaga sounds when I log off, like I said, kinda of weird how it
saved the sounds and they play when leaving kde.
Hey, I tried something and this worked.
I know the way to fix it.
The game is installed with root as user and group.
Changing the group to games. Which the user is part of
Sound is restored for User.
Just thought of this when working on a K3b permissions problem.

Not to be a pest, but how can this be a duplicate of bugno 14218 and then bug 14218 turn around and be a duplicate of 7615. That is just a loop and ends no where except to say it isn't going to be fix/fixable.
umm bug 14218 is not a dup of bug 7615 ...
Not sure if your stating a fact or just making an observation. But if it is a fact, then clicking on bugno for this is a duplicate here will take you to 14218, then it is marked as a duplicate of 7615 and will take you back here.
