@badderman xzoom works the way it works, anyway under Xfce you can zoom in following mouse movement by pressing a key (default "alt", but it can be changed) and using the mouse wheel to zoom in and out; I suppose this can be done under Gnome and Kde too, in some way or another.

How to zoom in following mouse movement (Live Zoom Mode) instead of the fixed area? like MacOS or ZoomIt in Windows?


How to zoom in without showing own window like a transparent xzoom window?


Windows has solution with Magnification API:

@eliran should work again now. For some reason makepkg doesn't currently automatically ungzip xzoom_0.3-23.diff.gz, so I added to the PKGBUILD some lines that explicitly do.

In 0.3-5 I changed the url for xzoom-0.3.tgz, the one @sunsite was no longer working.

This package doesn't build for me and unlike below, fetching it via wget doesn't work either.

@kuroneko: I had the same problem while installing this just now, haven't looked into what the cause it might be.

I'm having trouble building this package with makepkg. For some reason, makepkg fetching the sources times out. I can get the sources manually with wget though, after which makepkg verifies them and builds correctly. Anyone else seeing this problem?

Thanks xduugu, I followed your suggestions and think it's ok now.

> gzip: ../xzoom_0.3-23.diff.gz: No such file or directory Compressed sources are automatically decompressed, so the gzip -d line can be removed. The patch line needs to be changed to something like patch -Np1 < "$srcdir/xzoom_0.3-23.diff" because you cannot assume that srcdir is located in the same folder where the PKGBUILD is stored. See makepkg BUILDDIR variable for example.
