Re: Package request: FreeTube

Well, we could just shove the big fat 64-bit Electron app into a deb* and tell all the 32-bit users tough luck, but does it have any advantages over SMTube and QMPlay2's Youtube playback, which takes up less disk space and has 32-bit packages?

*That's how the debs on their download page were created.

Re: MX-17.1 on Dell XPS 13

That command does toggle it off and on, thanks. Now just need to figure out a launcher to do that. It'd be really cool to have it triggered by the USB event so the touchpad shuts off when the mouse is present and turns back on when it's not. For what it's worth, touchpad-indicator (provided by the ...

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

Shotwell 0.30.1 from Debian testing. Builds on standard Stretch with the exception of debhelper 11 and meson (>= 0.43.0) build-depends. (Both are in MX 17 or stretch-backports already) Ported over meson (program building tool) 0.47.2 from stretch-backports (done). Trying to backport meson 0.48.1 fro...

Dos it need a newer Qt than we have for MX 15 now?
In case anyone is curious, the answer was no. It just needed an extra build-depends that the qtbase5-dev in Stretch and upstream would pull in automatically, but not Jessie's version.

Re: MX-17.1 on Dell XPS 13

Does the keyboard disabler in touchpad-indicator have the same problem as the XFCE disabler?

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Flatpak Thread

1.0.4 has issues with a great many flatpaks, including zoom which worked on previous flatpaks version 1. they have changed some memory stuff, partially in response to a bug report I filed for sysVinit systems and discord (/dev/shm related). (new bug report filed at flatpak github) OK, that version'...

Re: MX-18

boys ... I only asked when mx18 started to see the light of day and did not expect a discussion about the numbering, this is something that the developers have to determine imo. I'm curious though what you'd want to see in MX-18 that is different than the monthly snapshot (MX-17.1 + all pool update...

Re: MX-18

It would be nice to have a new release that would support 2018 hardware out of the box (Ryzen and Intel Coffee Lake), with an updated kernel, Mesa stack, and firmware. The october monthly upgrade version seems to work fine on my 1950x. The debian backports 4.18.x kernel seems to work fine in the tw...
