Re: Logitech MX Ergo wireless trackball mouse (yes, MX is the real name ;) )

In my experience with Solaar, it'll report 90% right up until the battery goes critically low, but that seems to depend on the device, too: https://github.com/pwr/Solaar/issues/148

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

Finished Liquorix kernel 4.17-10, which has a workaround for the MuQSS scheduler bug with cpufreq which will reduce power use at idle and extend battery life.

Debian has a new 4.17.14 kernel upstream in Sid, so will backport that before it gets to stretch-backports.

Re: A cautionary tale ... "The video wars of 2027"

Does Firefox support playing AV1 streams yet? Do any other players support the codec? I searched a few weeks ago, and couldn't find anything yea or nay...I got the impression that its encoding is still extremely slow.

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

I noticed that Debian pushed an openjdk-8 security update to Stretch, but not to Jessie, since it uses 7 as default. Since MX 15/16 has 8 as the default, it's been backported and is going to main for that platform.

Now we can just sit back and wait for the NSA to offer massive sums to add backdoors, right? :p

What about packaging up batch-smart-resize? It just inserts a single file and works well with 2.10
I'll give it a try. It'll have to go in the systemwide folder, which seems to be /usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/

Re: bimp for batch image processing

Well, it fails to build against 2.10.4 anyway, and I can't find it in any other bleeding-edge distro's repo that would have patches I could copy over to fix that, so I'm just going to send up the versions built against the stock 2.8.xx gimps.

Re: bimp for batch image processing

The errors about installing libgimp2.0-dev in Jerry's first post resulted from installing gimp-2.10 from the test repo, probably with the package installer, which then disabled the test repo. The -dev packages have to match the installed version, so the solution is to install libgimp2.0-dev 2.10.4 f...

Re: Tomtom Sports Connect

It's closed-source, so we can't fix the dependencies...someone in that thread said they made a Docker container, which you might be able to run without installing those old libraries.
