Hope this is right forum!

Is it possible to add Waterfox to the repos?
If you want Waterfox now just use this.
WATERFOX MX17

Adding repository

Run these commands to add this repostory to your APT sources list:

echo 'deb https://dl.bintray.com/hawkeye116477/waterfox-deb release main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/waterfox.list

And the public GPG key:

curl https://bintray.com/user/downloadSubjec ... keye116477 | sudo apt-key add -

You can download and install the packages after you update the APT package index:

sudo apt-get update { I just us [sudo apt update] no need for the (get) any more..

And it will keep Waterfox updated as well.

If you've never done that before, the two files that need changing are debian/control and debian/compat.

Working on the new Krita 4.1.0. It hasn't made it to Sid yet, but I looked at the Debian maintainer's changelog in the VCS git repo for 4.1.0 to make sure mine matches up, such as adding libheif-dev for the new HEIF plugin. (HEIF=new iPhone image format)

Edit: Despite what Krita's 4.1.0 CmakeLists.txt file said, the libheif-dev 1.1.0 version we had for GIMP 2.10 was not new enough and the build failed. Backporting and building against libheif 1.3.2 was successful. Installed it and it works, so am uploading now.

But of course, just like a roll cast.

Uploading last Liquorix 4.16-11 kernel and new Liquorix 4.17-1 (based on 4.17.3 vanilla source) now. I tested the 4.17 in a Virtual Box MX guest, and the guest drivers still work (video, shared folders), but I don't know yet if that's using the drivers that are now built with the kernel instead of our packages.

MuseScore 2.3 for MX 17. MX 15/16 is left out, since it requires a newer Qt 5 than can be provided, but the AppImage might work there.

Debian packaged kernel 4.17.3 for Sid, so I'll try backporting it. With this new version, they enabled the Virtual Box guest driver support built into the kernel, as well as the internal drivers to support Anbox (virtual Android machines?)

Openshot-qt video editor 2.4.2 for MX 15/16 and 17 (finished and uploading)
