^ They are all nice apps, but ATM the dependencies are not satisfiable on stretch it seems (for the LM debs).

xplayer was particularly nice I found.

What a fantastic idea, I love those.

I think we should make them the default applications for Lithium.  monkey

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

^Maybe by Buster the dependencies will be available...

...or should we base Lithium on LMDE?

Well, it has been a little bit boring having a distribution that just works™ so yes, perhaps it would be fun to try something different...  devil

I am very impatient so here is Xed (the text editor), ported to Debian stretch (and various Ubuntu versions as well):

https://software.opensuse.org//download … ackage=xed

I will port the rest over when I have a minute.

I'm finding this little blighter a bit tricky to package because it has a web of interconnected dependencies and the configure script seems to be using a syntax that is not compatible with the stretch version of automake  hmm

To fix this I will have to build a custom .deb properly in my Debian system and drop the files from that into my openSUSE Build Service repository (at the moment I'm just dragging&dropping the files from the Mint servers to my OBS site using my OpenBSD box).

Anyway, I've managed to build the basic Xplayer package for BunsenLabs Hydrogen/Deuterium & Debian jessie (plus a few *buntu ones as well):

https://software.opensuse.org//download … ge=xplayer

I could add the plugins later, I think.

Use maybe to See What a Command or Script Will Do, Without Runing It
Available in the Stable (Stretch), Testing, and Unstable repos.
Caveat:  Considered alpha quality by the developer.  Do not use maybe to run untrusted code.

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

^That's what tip databases are for.  I use Treepad under wine.  Cherry Tree might be an acceptable alternate, although I looked at it awhile back and wasn't impressed compared with Treepad.

There is a version of Treepad for Linux, but it will only store text; no pics, no text formatting.  I'm also not certain if you can change the tree icons in the Linux version.

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

Debian Policy 4.1.0.0 released:
https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-a … 00007.html
https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-a … 00003.html

Some changes, including:

Debian Policy 4.0.1.0 wrote:

2.5
         The extra priority has been deprecated and should be treated as
           equivalent to optional. All extra priorities should be changed to
           optional.

11.8.3
    The required behaviour of x-terminal-emulator -e has been
    clarified, and updated to replace a false claim about the
    behaviour of xterm.

    Programs must support `-e command` where command may include
    multiple arguments, which must be executed as if the arguments
    were passed to execvp directly, bypassing the shell.

    If this execution fails and -e has a single argument,
    xterm's fallback behaviour of passing command to the shell
    is permitted but not required.

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

^ That's just for the default GNOME desktop, upstream moved away from the X server quite a while ago.

It doesn't affect XFCE, LXDE or Cinnamon (or BunsenLabs) directly.

Hmmm--I did xviewer and xreader a little while back for jessie-based MX 16, and Tim just ported them up to MX 17, just before evacuating his Florida home for Irma, so the other apps shouldn't be a problem.  There's an xapps PPA where I got the sources.

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

Debian's first "Buster" live image has come out:
https://lists.debian.org/debian-live/20 … 00046.html
Of course this is still very experimental.

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

That is so awesome, they even have a dedicated "patches" page:

https://sources.debian.org/patches/

I can now consider incorporating Debian's mksh patches into my Arch mksh-static package glasses

EDIT: ha! They fixed $KSH_VERSION, I was wondering about that lol
