Re: Emendo text editor

I've changed Emendo's interface to use new Gtk.HeaderBar, for screen shot look first post. That will start new version 2.0.1, and require Gtk>=3.10. I'm making my peace with the headerbar (old dog and new tricks). Any chance of replacing the 'redo' button with the 'find' or a 'find/replace' combo b...

Re: Wireless problems workaround

Yes, just symlink /sbin pointing to /bin without copying modprobe works for me also. As for reinstating sbin as symlink to /usr/bin: I thought the Arch Linux framework has that.(Also /bin -> /usr/bin, /usr/sbin -> /usr/bin and even /lib -> /usr/lib symlinks). I don't know enough Arch to know but fo...

Re: Wireless problems workaround

Hi, Snuffling around a bit more. Agreed, reinstating sbin isn't ideal, but this certainly is simple and a pointer in the right direction. On my iwlwifi laptop, just a symlink /sbin, linking to /bin seems to work without copying the files to /usr/bin. Does that work for you fredx or is the copy to an...

Re: Wireless problems workaround

Hi fredx, I have a couple of ipw2200 wireless laptops. My solution for them has been to load the libcrypt module 'manually'. Also in my iwlwifi laptop I have been loading iwldvm. I'll pull those from the modules line in rc.conf and try your fix over the next couple of days and let you know results. ...

pupradio for alphaOS

Here is a tar.gz of pupradio 0.19 sorted out for alphaOS. Mostly directory structure and notify-send replaces xmessage. Not as elegant as simpleradio but does support adding additional stations as bookmarks, does work with mplayer2 and is still pretty small. I'm using it in alphaOS 12.1 at the moment.

usbsave package

Attached is a modified usbsave package I have used for the past few versions. It does 4 things: 1. Check and correct the system time before saving. 2. Only use the 'update' write mode if the time is correct 3. Provide notification saving is taking place 4 Provide a save.desktop and icon so save can ...

Re: Abiword 2.8.6 in alphaOS 12

It is easy for anyone to use makesfs and have abiword, gnumeric, geany, gimp or anything else in one sfs or in separate modules. Abiword will not read .docx or it may save wrong formatting, so I think kingston office is better choice now. I heartily agree with the SFS approach, especially now since...

Re: Versions 12.0&12.1 - Gtk 3.10 and Emendo

With mplayer2, libdvdcss is needed for gnome-mplayer to play dvds. It's tiny and pacman -S libdvdcss installs it. See here http://alphaos.tuxfamily.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=843 for details. 12.0, with mplayer, didn't need it.

Re: Versions 12.0&12.1 - Gtk 3.10 and Emendo

12.1 downloaded and installed, usual Grub4Dos Frugal in SSD. Accepted my adrive_12 with all of my customizations perfectly. This will make upgrades and updates much easier. Thanks :D :D :D Changed a .desktop and the openbox pipe menu seems fixed. Subjectively faster also? Haven't used it enough to c...

Re: BDRV or maybe CDRV

That name may be too long, but what about abundle.sfs? Or some other suggestion? Bundle - http://www.thefreedictionary.com/bundle - seems appropriate name for what we call module. I used adrive_12 when I first was working on it in alphaOS 12. That worked, would work for me and the name adrive is so...
