You will need glib-33 installed to have success.
I have glibc-2.33-x86_64-3 installed, but that is glibc not glib and it is version 2.33 not 33. :(

ruby and pdf2epubEX

I try to get pdf2epubEX to run, but it is my first time trying to run a ruby script, and I did not find anything helpful searching for "htmlentities (LoadError)" and "ruby". I installed pdf2epubEX in the folder where the PDFs are, I put xmlEscape.rb in /bin I installed ruby-3.0.2-x86_64-1.xzm I have...

I'll be testing to see if it works as expected. Let me know if you want the module(s).
If it runs on 5.0rc3 please do upload it.

Maybe keep the dependencies as extra modules, especially hunspell is used by some other programs.

FreeTube is an open source desktop YouTube player
Have downloaded it but not yet tried it, but I have to say:
125.12 MB just for a YouTube player is kinda the overkill, size-wise (version is: freetube_0.13.2_amd64.AppImage)

[Info] ffmpeg encoding

Since it took me a while to figure that out I share it with you. You can concat files into one large file via a .txt file that holds the file names. The issue started when the source files hold whitespace or a simple ' - you need to use the "-safe 0" option since ffmpeg considers filenames with whit...

Howto: Popular AppImages one click away

Has anyone found PhotoScape as AppImages?
Wikipedia article: PhotoScape
According to that for Linux it is available as a Snap package.

(Tried searching the sites from post #1, but not all respond, for now e.g. https://www.linux-apps.com/browse is not responding. The ones I could search found nil.)

Why is Porteus-installer-for-Linux.com needed for booting Porteus via USB?

Just a reminder, any OS - any Linux, but also e.g. BSD - could be loaded from the same USB drive that has Porteus installed, when you can figure out the needed syntax for it. :) Just a tip.
