Browser update

have seen this in a lot of scripts recently, i guess that with some recent xargs update 'the rules' have been tightened around this... and technically, a warning is not an error :) i will get around to cleaning this up, though .. thanks Makes sense that they changed the code when the warnings are a...

l3afpad no drag&drop?

Why does drag&drop not work with l3afpad? (It also never worked with leafpad)? Is there a tweak necessary go get l3eafpad to accept a text file that got dragged & dropped onto its window from Thunar? When I already have the correct folder open and want to reuse a running l3eafpad, simple a drag&drop...

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.

Internet Radio

This simple script can easily be adapted /changed /supplemented. Nice script, but since only one station worked - the one that interests me the least (the Musicalradio one) - I changed the script to see what possible errors ffplay reports, like so: ffplay -x 300 -y 100 -window_title "${TITLE}" -hid...

Since in older Porteus versions uxterm was called a light-on-resources terminal emulator, I put it to the test: uxterm vs xfce4-terminal. System: Porteus 5.0rc XFCE with Xfce v4.12. I created a variant of my fx alias (fx runs free -m) called fX that runs free -k. No other programs have been started ...
