Not recommended Sites stops working after installing it . Page layout changed. Admin not working showing blank screen with only header logo. December 14, 2013
Skin JS path function broken. After enabling and disabling js min and combine the skin js paths (from layout xml) returns the full path aswell as url. This breaks the javascript. Even disabling the extension and uninstalling does not fix this! This plugin needs an update. Running Magento CE 1.7.2.0 December 11, 2013
Not working The addon breaks the site. Unnistalled and again all ok. Not recommended. December 4, 2013

Should Be Standard in All Magento Sites! We've now deployed this extension on several sites and it works perfectly. Support is excellent, I found the CSS bug for URL timestamps and sent Gossamer the fix which was rolled out in an update within 2 days. One of the complaints I keep seeing on these reviews is "It messes up my site!" - this will be down to poorly scripted CSS or JS. Your CSS and JS MUST be fully standards compliant or the minification process will corrupt the resulting CSS and JS. Actually its a pretty good way to check if you CSS / JS is of top standard. So if this extension messes up your site then it's not the extension's fault. We have one site where the home page FULL LOADS in 0.7s! November 6, 2013
Do not USE I installed this on my Magento Store running 1.7.0.2 and it messed everything up. Be sure to have a backup if you are going to try using this. November 4, 2013
jpegoptim is not executable This extension is great, it's working on 2 of 4 servers that I've installed it on. The problem is that on two of the servers I get this error "jpegoptim is not executable". I know you say to make the permission of the folder recursively at least 755 and make the jpegoptim file executable as well. I've done all that and it's working on 2 servers, but on 2 servers even though I've set the permission 777 to all folders and I made sure the files are executable I still get this error. There are others complaining about this, it's a real issue with this extension, not just people that don't know how to set permissions. Please stop repeating the same message and look into it. Thanks. October 14, 2013
Good Tested on a Magento 1.7.0.2, working well! If you get any error, disable magento compiler (I use it) and recompile the files. Just remeber to set file permission to execute on /lib/gtspeed files. October 4, 2013
Error "GT_Speed_Helper_Data' not found in" I had a "GT_Speed_Helper_Data not found in. .." in a test environment. I want nothing of this pluggin. Uninstall immediately. Magento Version 1.7.0.2 My rating on Developer Support is Poor, because only 3 of 14 questions are answered October 3, 2013

When I try to optimise the images, I get this error: "jpegoptim is not executable".
Permissions set to 755 on image folders and also lib/gtspeed. Memory is set to 128 in php.ini.

Am I doing something wrong?

Answer: 
Just tell me you noobs, those are .exe files which optimizes. And your server will have to be windows based. Does Linux server runs .exe?

So don't use this .exe.

Answer: 
Salam aleikum to all who I can,

Setting folders to 775 did not help in my case.

I moved Magento from one host to another and this happened here is what I did to get it work.

Reinstalled jpegoptim, optpng and gifsicle.

Then copied proper ones from /usr/bin/ directory like this

cp /usr/bin/gifsicle /home/mysite/www/lib/gtspeed/elf32/

cp /usr/bin/optpng /home/mysite/www/lib/gtspeed/elf32/

cp /usr/bin/jpegoptim /home/mysite/www/lib/gtspeed/elf32/

You can safely owerwrite on the original ones.

Then I issued chown to my user (dont keep it root owened)

chown myuser jpegoptim optpng gifsicle
chgrp myuser jpegoptim optpng gifsicle
chmod +x jpegoptim optpng gifsicle

This made it work perfectly..

You can install optpng and gifsicle on CentOS with yum it has the repo. For jpegoptim you need this

Hi,
I have installed the latest version of GT Speed in my development, When i click the "Optimize image" in the GTSpeed page it shows that "optipng is not executable". After that i have changed all the folder and subfolder permission to 777. But still i cant able to predict the root cause of the issue. Can you help me to resolve this issue as soon as possible?

Thanks in advance,

It is mentioend that when you click on Update Image Library GTspeed will index all the images in the specified directories (specified in the Advanced Settings) and track them.Does it mean that Will GTSpeed will create folder under lib as: lib/gtspeed/win32.. and list down all images here?

Wow, not bad! After implementing, my site is much faster but, for some reason, the css is combined in a wrong order. By "wrong order," I mean that the layout gets changed.

When disabling CSS combining and enabling everything else, everything is fine. Still, my site is much faster.

Any ideas?
