Linux Troubleshooting

Post by oftentired »

Some solutions that have worked or explanations

• Double check that you have downloaded the correct package for your Linux

• If your system is 64 bit be sure to use 64 bit package

• Unexplained issue? Try Hardware Acceleration: If it is on, turn it off. If it is off, turn it on

• quote="flashpeak" There is actually one catch about 32-bit linux. We wouldn't be able to continue provide flash updates to the 32-bit version of Slimjet for linux. Originally, we just grabbed it from the Chrome package. After Chrome dropped 32-bit linux support, we will have no source of flash updates for linux. Sorry, guys.

Linux Troubleshooting libffmpeg.so problems

Post by oftentired »

Right now, the advice is to remove the lib folder completely and install 0.20.3 version of libffmpeg.so directly under the same folder as slimjet executable.

That should fix the problem. You can find the updated libffmpeg.so from this page: github . com/iteufel/nwjs-ffmpeg-prebuilt/releases/tag/0.20.3

I have installed the latest update to 27.0, and am experiencing constant crashes. I thought it might be due to the latest update, so I installed a previous version, 26.0.12, and I still get the same crashes. I'm using Xubuntu 17.10 - 64-bit. Before the update, slimjet was the most stable web browser I've ever used. Now, it's trash. WTF happened? I have NO ERROR reports when it crashes, and I also get this weird full-screen white flash for a split second right before it crashes. After each crash, I restart it, and the "restore previous web pages" button pops-up, I click on that to restore whatever I was working on. This is getting to be a real pain in my ass. Everything WAS great until you guys did the latest update. I am NOT happy. :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:
