Re: MX-16: Please upgrade FSlint to 2.46

fslint 2.47 and another similar program, rmlint-gui 2.6.1 (Penetrating Pineapple), are in this zip: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxE7w ... jdpbGJxbVE

rmlint has the "rmlint" CLI version plus the GUI package. The GUI shows as "Shredder" in the menu.

Re: Adobe Update?

Have an outdated one in Firefox ((26,0,0,131), and current one in google (26.0.0.137) So did any of the update methods work to resolve the error message? Using the drag and drop procedure I thought I would have the latest in Firefox... green243@green243:~ $ strings /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libfla...

Re: [No action] MX-16: Please update Sylpheed from beta to current stable (3.5.1)

Possibly qbb had a newer dbus from jessie-backports installed; that's the only other "legal" way I can think that it could be in MX. Just a speculation...don't know if it's in there or not.

Re: [No action] MX-16: Please update Sylpheed from beta to current stable (3.5.1)

So I tried to backport 3.5.1 from Stretch, applying a rather basic workaround to the libgpgme-dev build-depend problem, but the configure fails, saying it needs a newer gcc than we have, a minimum of 5, while we have 4.9. Gcc is one of the basic foundations of a distro, and I am really reluctant to ...

Re: [No action] MX-16: Please update Sylpheed from beta to current stable (3.5.1)

Before we go any further down the path of suggesting we add foreign binaries to out repo, how about if you try to reproduce qwertyblahblah's install and testing the packages first? That's the scientific method...reproducibilty is a big part of it. You can directly download the various versions' debs...

Re: Aptik or Equivalent Work on MX-Linux?

I think when I looked at aptik some time ago, it relied on some Ubuntu-specific tools--something to do with preserving PPA sources, I think. It would be nice if we had a similar native application for MX.

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

Wine-staging 2.13 is out now, too, so will cook up the Wine 2.13 for M12/MX14.

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

It's not really just for XFCE, it's just that it only needs the Qt 5 runtimes, and we already have those installed and running anyway., so ends up being not much of an additional load. I use the Dolphin-Kwrite combo, too, but this seems quite like it. He also has a Qt 5 based notes taking applicatio...
