Newbie questions about Growl and HardwareGrowl

Postby arkabas » Sun Apr 02, 2006 1:53 am

Hi everyone,

Love the program but have two problems with it.

First problem: The notification boxes seem to be laggy on my iBook G4 1.33 GHz (Tiger 10.4.5). All expect bezel and music video appear and disappear fine, but suddenly flash just before they fully fade away. Nothing terrible but it ruins the nice fade away effect.

Second problem: I am using a hacked version of HardwareGrowl (found on this forum) that runs without appearing in the dock. Everything is great except that it displays the devices I have plugged in at launch. For example, my USB mouse is always plugged in. And when I log in I get about 3 messages (USB mouse, USB controller, etc.). Is there anyway to disable this? Can I disable this login recognition of devices?

Thanks very much in advance for any help.

I get about 10 notifications on startup (add internet which includes wireless connection, new IP... and iPod to what you said) so yeah, that would be nice.

Make it visible again - then when it runs check out the preferences. There is a checkbox that turns off start-up notifications.

This is one reason why it doesn't come as an 'invisible' app.

Check the preferences -- there's an option not to display notifications on things when it starts up. It's a bit buggy in the current release, improved a bit for the next.

Thanks, everything worked great. Sorry I didn't check preferences before posting. What about my other problem. The laggy fade out effect? Any ideas?
