Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

^Thanks! But that won't be for a while yet - I'm still hoping the Bullseye version of live-build will be upgraded to the latest version from Sid.

Meanwhile, the packages are available, and a how-to topic coming soon. Any volunteers to try that will be highly welcome. smile

No ISOs for a while, but the packages are out.

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

@Johnraff, I updated my Debian desktop to Bullseye just after the soft freeze, I'd love to do the same with Lithium (and post a tutorial). Do we have enough BL packages yet?

Not quite the same as upgrading a Lithium system of course.

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

NewInBullseye

Debian wiki page that will probably have more stuff added...

https://wiki.debian.org/NewInBullseye

Worth keeping an eye on.

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

Command "open" in Bullseye

http://charles.plessy.org/Debian/debi%C3%A2neries/open/

Debian Bullseye will provide the command /usr/bin/open for your greatest comfort at the command line. On a system with a graphical desktop environment, the command should have a similar result as when opening a document from a mouse-and-click file browser.

Technically, /usr/bin/open is a symbolic link managed by update-alternatives to point towards xdg-open if available and otherwise run-mailcap.

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

and otherwise run-mailcap.

Now that's interesting.
The man page starts thusly:

run-mailcap, view, see, edit, compose, print - execute programs via entries in the mailcap file

I only have this on my non-graphical Debian install.
There are some entries in /etc/mailcap.
Testing with e.g.

compose some.html

just opens the file with vi. I wonder what's possible on a graphical system.
- and apparently no package owns /etc/mailcap; I wonder what created it and who writes to it?

update-mime belongs to mime-support
