Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

The newest release of Eaglemode (0.93.2)
It was cool enough that I built 0.82 for MEPIS 11 and used it quite a bit but I had forgotten about it. Way past time for a new build.

Re: fsv request

Fsv hasn't been updated since 2001 - and while I haven't tried it, GTK programs that old usually won't compile on modern systems without building a similarly old GTK as well. However, I'm glad you brought up fsv because I had forgotten another excellent 3d filesystem visualizer that I packaged for M...

Re: Are PoE surveillance cameras ("CCTV") really unsafe? Are USB, Firewire better?

I have never used Firewire but looking from a distance at the specs the ability of devices on the firewire port to operate peer to peer without supervision from the computer as well as the ability to map their memory over firewire leads me to believe there are potentially more ways a firewire camera...

Re: Color dot matrix printer recommendation?

There are still several Epson 24 pin dot matrix printers on the market that meet all but one of the requirements - that one being color printing. Color dot matrix printing was always a kludge.

Re: MX-17.1 package upgrade request: gscan2pdf

Gscan2pdf_2.1.4 is now available in the MX-17 Test repository. It works. It's a trifle glitchy with my scanner (which is one of those that requires the scanimage frontend be used instead of the default), but I've seen the behavior before so it may have nothing to do with the program. See if it fixes...

Re: MX-17.1 package upgrade request: gscan2pdf

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

The problem is the libmatroska6v5 (>= 1.4.5) dependency in mkvtoolnix-gui. If the 1.4.9 version from MX-17 Test is installed then mkvtoolnix-gui runs.
