Batman: The Killing Joke – Moore/Bolland/Higgins; or other preferred title

Comix, set to Fullscreen (F)/Fit-To-Screen Mode (S)/Rotated 90 degrees CCW (Shift+R)/Keep Transformation (K)

Asus EEEPC 701 4G, or similar model

Hold open like a book; hit spacebar or left trackpad button to turn page, or use arrow keys to navigate; zoom in to taste; read at leisure; hit ESC to return to main menu; enjoy.

could you elaborate a little bit more on the instructions? Where do you go to rotate the screen? thanks

It’s there in the second line of the post, Simone.

“Comix, set to Fullscreen (F)/Fit-To-Screen Mode (S)/Rotated 90 degrees CCW (Shift+R)/Keep Transformation (K)”

In the Comix menu, click on View, then choose Transform, then choose which direction you want to rotate the screen (clockwise or counterclockwise). To make the rotation persistent for the entire comicbook, choose View/Transform/Keep Transformation.

how did you install Comix? are you using the Xandros OS?

7. reverseengineer - February 25, 2008

@newbie: Xandros, yes. You can install it via Synaptics like I did; it’s in the default repositories, I think.

@Annabs: Saw that before – really nice, but as far as I know it’s a Win XP thing only. Xandros users are SOL.
