  • Dumb noob question

    Hey,

    I got Frodo to use with my XM Direct at home for now, and I'm going to use it when I build my carputer later this year.. My question is when I open Frodo, it seems to dock itself at a particulaR spot on the desktop and I can't move it. I have a dual-monitor (1024x768) setup home, and the carputer will probably also be dual-monitor, so I would like to be able to change where it is, but I can't seem to find any way to 'undock' it so I can move it.. Am I missing something here?

    This is where it stays..



    Thanks in advance!
    Matt

        Whose skin is that?
        My first attempt at a carputer.

        PM me if you're interested in a monitor faceplate for your '99-'04 Golf or Jetta. My Vortex ID is NorthAtlR32 - you can IM me there, too. Go here for more information.

          Ok, I turned it off, and got it to go to fullscreen which is good, but I still can't move it to the other screen. It will only open on the Primary monitor. I can't get it to open in the Secondary display. I have a Radeon 7000 card with ATi Catalyst software and Hydravision installed. I've tried using Desktop Manager to move it, to no avail.. Is this something that I'm just stuck with until a future release?

          That's djScript's skin, BTW. All you SkinMasters are great!

          Thanks,

                Thanks Frodo! My secondary screen actually sits to the left, so I figured out it's -1024. Might want to throw that into the FAQ about the values for secondary displays, and that they depend on where the secondary display is with respect to the primary (and can be negative)..

                Thanks again!

                    In that link it says:

                    ADV_TOP=212
                    ADV_LEFT=200
                    ADV_WIDTH=1024
                    ADV_HEIGHT=768

                    It should be:

                    ADV_TOP=0
                    ADV_LEFT=0
                    ADV_WIDTH=1024
                    ADV_HEIGHT=768

                    I'm thinking about working out a skin for 1024x768 but will see how rusty my photoshop skills are and how easy they are to implement. Take this as salt.
