Re: Loads of upgrades

JanK is referring to the bad old days with updates on Windows, no doubt.

I wonder why antiX just pushed an update to gksu to 2.1.0 that we also received, though.

Re: Dedo reviews Xfce apps

When I run the Test Repo version in a terminal, I get about 20 repeats of this: (midori:1435): Gtk-WARNING **: 15:59:46.572: Allocating size to GtkBox 0x55dd031de820 without calling gtk_widget_get_preferred_width/height(). How does the code know the size to allocate? Still works, but I wonder what ...

Libreoffice
Which version?
6.1.5 from Buster. Experimental has 6.2.0, but we probably want to stay away from that for now.

Re: Dedo reviews Xfce apps

I couldn't tell whether he was testing ye olde Midori 0.5 or or Midori 7, myself.
We could make sure he gets 7 by moving it to main, which it seems to be ready for.

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

Libreoffice built, installs, and works OK, so will send to test repo.

Trying a build of Python 3.7 that should coexist with the system's default 3.5--I think you'd just invoke it with "python3.7" instead of "python3", but will test that.

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

Managed to get Libreoffice 6.1.5 from Sid to at least start building by liberally applying the changes that stretch-backports did for 6.1.5~rc1. I also had to change the DEB_DISTRIBUTION conditional in debian/rules from "stretch-backports" to "mx" for it to correctly generate the right set of build-...

Re: Mouse undetected until replug

Can you run lsusb -t when it's undetected and again when it's working to see what driver it's using, then try unloading and reloading the driver with rmmod and modprobe to see if that gets it working without touching it. If that works, you could write a script that does that, put it in /usr/local/bi...

Re: I think I finally broke my laptop's WIFI module

Do any of the hotkeys, such as for brightness, work at all? There's a guide for Ubuntu that mentions having to add a kernel command at boot time to get brightness keys to work, so if you have any of those already, please let us know. https://connorkuehl.github.io/dell-inspiron-7559-linux-guide/ You ...
