!DualHead second release reviewed

The Iconbar - Fri, 10/06/2017 - 06:11
In our previous review we looked at release 1 of !DualHead. R-Comp have already released an update so we will dive in and see what has changed...

There is more polish in this release with some clearer messages. The software is very smart in making sure that you do not end up with no display. There is no dedicated installer application but the software is extremely easy to update - you copy !Boot over your existing copy and copy the !DualHead software onto your disk, and reboot/run . There is also a !RevertMode application installed in !Boot which will restore sanity with a click of Alt and Home.

As you can see there are some higher resolution modes now available. 2048 x 1440 x 2 is an amazing screen, but I was unable to run this in 16 million colours without a lot of flickering (although for most tasks 32k/64K is indistinguishable). R-Comp acknowledges this in the documentation and is probably pushing the Titanium/RISC OS beyond its limits.

I do think that the documentation could be improved. There is a version 1 PDF document hidden away (which is confusing on a v2 release) and a proper rewrite and release history in the !ReadMe would be nice.

Some advice on how best to use and setup the 2 monitors for RISC OS would also be welcome - my biggest issue after testing the new release was neck ache from playing 'head ping-pong' by switching my view between the 2 monitors all the time due to the Icon Bar now being across both screens.

I am really pleased to see R-Comp produce a second release (I prefer to keep the version 2 tag for major feature updates). R-Comp is leading RISC OS into new territory with this software and I think it really benefits from small, regular incremental releases driven by user and developer feedback. I am really looking forward to talking to R-Comp at the London show about their plans for the software.

My killer feature for the version 2 release would be to fix the issue with the popups appearing in the middle of the screen. What is yours?

Melbourne CUGC IV – It’s LTSR in the Spotlight!

Aaron Parker's stealthpuppy - Wed, 10/04/2017 - 11:20

We’ve been busy planning our next CUGC meet-up for 2017, which will be on the 24th of October at the Telstra Conference Center at 242 Exhibition St. To attend the meet-up, ensure you’ve signed up at the site: 


We’ve got Christian Lloyd from Citrix to take us through the XenDesktop / XenApp 7.15 LTSR release. This release is not to be underestimated and I’m expecting to see many organisations finally moving off XenApp 6.5 and those still on 7.6 LTSR, upgrade to 7.15 to take advantage of the new features. Because the latest release has so many features, the theme for this meeting will be ‘Doing more with what you have‘; so we’ll also take you through some of the really interesting features (e.g. FAS, App Layering, Workspace Environment Management, etc.) that you can be taking advantage of to improve your XD/XA environments. Plus get your questions about how to migrate answered.

CUGC Community Presentation

We still have space for a community presentation – if you’re interested in presenting on any topic related to Citrix technologies, we would love for you to present. 


This month, we’re really happy to have eG Innovations sponsoring our meet-up and to discuss proactive monitoring, assessment and management of your Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp environments. To get an idea what eG Innovations is doing, check out this recent Citrix blog article: Monitor Logon Performance Seamlessly with eG Innovations. Did you know they have a logon simulator? Check it out:

eG Innovations enables us to rent the venue and also provide beer and pizza for XenBeers afterwards, so we’d love to see you there. Even better, they’ll be giving away a Google Home!

Win Google Home at our next CUGC meet-up

Special Announcement

Be sure to come along to this month’s event to hear about our extra special December event. This is not something you’re going to want to miss.
