tar2xzm

this : bundle - Zoom for Porteus 5.0rc1 no good for you? Extract the .tar files to a directory then dir2xzm it to a xzm file. I'll let you know if that works. a bit more than that: #mkdir -p zoom/{opt,usr/{bin,share/applications}} put the extracted zoom folder in zoom/opt create a link(zoom) in zoo...

Under xfce4 use the panel menu. It is there under internet menu.
that's a different "zoom" :D , in this case it's zoom as in like a camera lens, or to make everything larger..

Since I not use a standard 5.0rc1 but more a 5.0rc1 pre-rc2 is there a newer binutils module?
should just work, which it looks like it is, until it has a space problem..
(we should split this conversation out of this topic since it's not about appimages any more)

But these are beta versions, not even rc versions, so it could take a while till they start with rc. i think you'll find they go: nightly,then beta, then (stable)release, then minor releases, while simultaneously releasing more nightlys and betas, much like firefox does.. actually, earlier when i f...

How does the desktop zoom work?

i think you might be mistaken about openbox. but it's certainly part of xfce4:
menu>Settings>Settings Editor>xfwm4>zoom_desktop
or
~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfwm4.xml line 87: <property name="zoom_desktop" type="bool" value="true"/>
also, compositing has to be on for it to work..

Port 5.0rc1 XFCE - external ext3 weirdly mounted

Do some Linux variants now use /etc/mnttab while others still use the older well known /etc/mtab? "mtab" it not to be found even a single time in the online mount manual. i'd be inclined to think that the man.cx page is out of date, when compared to say https://jlk.fjfi.cvut.cz/arch/manpages/man/mo...
