Re: Package Requests CCExtractor

Thanks mike. It's nice to just open a terminal where my video file is and do the extraction. I did find this when it comes to a GUI for Linux. Since I may be the only one that uses this, I don't think it is worth the effort for a GUI, but you might check it out here, just in case someone else asks a...

Re: Package Requests CCExtractor

Taking a look now edit: I'm assuming this is for MX-17/18.... This one needs at least one backport too... - mike Yes it is for MX-18. I made another install of MX-18 for testing and I check and added what was required to make the one file to use. I did not try to install it system wide as one other...

Re: Update to PIA VPN

If you do a search for Expressvpn there is a hack that made it work without systemd running as pid1. It may work for you or asked the one who did it if he can do the same for you.

Re: Changed user name after install

This is just a test setup since I could not get a program to build on my main side. I did search and it said this could be done so I tried it. I may just wait till the February snapshot and reinstall. This is to learn to build programs etc.

Changed user name after install

I created 2 partitions for a new install using the January snapshot. When I created the user I wanted to make sure that I did not forget which system I was using. So instead of using 'towwire' I used towwire2'. After, with the new desktop picture I new I should have stayed with 'towwire'. So here ar...

Re: CCExtractor for MakeMKV Flatpaks

Handbrake might go faster if you can take advantage of its GPU-assisted acceleration. And how do I do that? I can also confirm that this Flatpak does not work...if you want English CC. I created a new root and a home to install the January MX-18. I did updates and nothing else did I add or change. ...

Re: CCExtractor for MakeMKV Flatpaks

Probably I can't help you here so much. I have makemkv compiled on a kind of antiX-media-PC, not as a flatpak. I rarely use it to rip. The main reason why I installed it is, that I can now view protected blurays via its libmmmd library , with vlc without problems. I have just seen the option to set...
