Ubuntu Karmic Koala Guide
« on: August 11, 2010, 09:04:46 PM »
I put this through XMF and Exported a 3D file. When I get some spare time,   :rolleyes:, I want to give Ubuntu another go. Reads well. Did it this way just for summin different.  And to test that everyone's up to date with their Java Runtime.   :laugh:
I have sneaked these proofs past the gatekeeper a few times, (she doesn't like them), and clients think they're useful/fun. We also Black Magic and soft-proof Optimised/imposed as well, of course.

PS: Your Karmic Koala is a version behind the current Lucid Lynx (10.04). :wink:

It's OK, I'm well-used to being behind the curve...   :grin:  May actually get to 'tidy the spare room' soon, hook up the currently unused, almost new PC, and load some sort of...well, animal, I guess.   :undecided:

The 'gatekeeper' at Hd Off returns Monday. Am anticipating a call..."Who authorised you to send (insert client person) a 3D proof?!"  Time for some fun.   :evil:

It'll make life interesting, if nothing else.

Below Pasted the instructions I send out with 3D proofs. FYI...for anyone wanting to have a squizz at the file.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Double-clicking on the file should trigger self-install via IzPak Installer which is nested in the file. You do not need any third-party software.
You will have to have Java Runtime on your computer, preferably the latest which you can download from the Sun Microsystems site. Most people will already have this for web-related viewing.
If you are on a Mac preferably unZip using using Stuffit Expander. This will only be necessary if the file has been Zipped, which most-times it won't have been.
Go to Window>Zoom Window to max your screen view.


Left mouse button_hold and drag = turn pages.
Left mouse+Control Key+mouse backwards/forwards =  enlarge to desired screen-fit.
Right Mouse, hold and move = orientation of book adjustment.

I didn't know about the Left+Control and Right Mouse moves. That's pretty freaking cool although I warn you....I'm a sucker for cheap entertainment.
