"Better than Zoom: Try these free software tools for staying in touch"

"Better than Zoom: Try these free software tools for staying in touch" is the subject of the most recent email I got via the info@fsf.org mailing list. I want to share some of the recommendations with you (the FSF concentrates on Free as in libre Software for all OS, not just for Linux, of course) :...

Howto: Popular AppImages one click away

M. Eerie, I know, it is a boring Porteus module and not an AppImage, but maybe you are interested in my GraphicsMagick V1.3.35 x86_64 module of the most recent version of GraphicsMagick. And yes, that is for use via the Command-line interface as well, but at the end of my article I provided some ex...

GraphicsMagick V1.3.35 x86_64

GraphicsMagick, like ImageMagick, is a very powerful image converter and able to manipulate images in various ways. It is used via the Command-line interface GraphicsMagick-1.3.35-lp152.1.1+libGraphicsMagick-Q16-3-1.3.35-lp152.1.1.x86_64.xzm (2.42 MB) (tested in Porteus 5.0rc1 XFCE, but it should wo...

Howto: Popular AppImages one click away

Ok, but then, what's the purpose of the AppRun.sh script above? :hmmm: Maybe It has to be related to some AppImage manager/daemon which is AppRun.sh aware (AppImageKit, AppImaged or similar)... This is the AppRun.sh reference int AppImage specification. I have no clue what the purpose of the AppRun...

Zoom linux: sound output problem

I have an invitation for a local Tai Chi webinar via zoom in approx 19 hours.

The issue: I never used zoom before. I presume there is no such thing as a zoom test environment where one could join a test group to see if all works as it should?

Linux is an operating system kernel and then Linux distributions add the necessary libraries and other infrastructure to produce a complete "operating system". Each major Linux dist...

webp support for viewnior

I try to get webp support for my favourite image viewer viewnior. I learned that it relies on gdk-pixbuf. That can be upgraded by installing webp-pixbuf-loader-20191003.fb04954-x86_64-1_slonly.txz So I created the module webp-pixbuf-loader-20191003.fb04954-x86_64-1_slonly.xzm and activated it. Still...

This is the commit number. Imagemagick is in continuous development cycle and it seems they use this versioning convention. Thanks for the info. How does one invoke them without going to the shell? Even more, how does one invoke them going to the shell through the AppImage? How to use it? Quite sim...

ImageMagick Create, edit, compose, or convert bitmap images Does anyone know the weird naming logic behind IM versions? The most recent one is Release build (7.0.10-3) But it is called 23e57a6 . E.g. the download is ImageMagick-23e57a6-clang-x86_64.AppImage Trying to find info on that on "Travis CI...

[Internet Search fun] Porteus Maze test

This thread is meant to collect some unexpected or better even: outright weird findings where a duckduckgo search gave you something unexpected, either something interesting or funny, or both.

[HOWTO] make a xzm module driver for NVIDIA video card

No,you need to downgrade xorg properly. I replaced the xorg.xzm to test if the driver would compile then. I didn't care if something else breaks.(I'm pretty sure it will) Is there a HOWTO for downgrading such an important part of the OS? I know how to remove a single package. But that is not really...

[HOWTO] make a xzm module driver for NVIDIA video card

xorg 1.20 is the show stopper, the kernel not so much. I once made a test using port-5, replaced the xorg.xzm to see if the 304 driver would compile/work, it worked. That means, it would be possible, to e.g. use kernel 5.4.19 or possible a never 5.4.* kernel. And just replace xorg.xzm. Do any of th...
