Re: removing a programm and all no longer needed deps

GTK+, or the GIMP Toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces
libraries that GTK+ depends on are: GLib, GdkPixbuf, Pango, and ATK.
I suggest: better not touch

Re: removing a programm and all no longer needed deps

The Gdk Pixbuf is a toolkit for image loading and pixel buffer manipulation
- Image loading and saving facilities.
- Fast scaling and compositing of pixbufs.
- Simple animation loading (ie. animated GIFs)
It is used by GTK+ 2 to load and manipulate images.

Re: Porteus 2.1 Development

@Johannes

I had the same opinion about it as I came to Porteus.

I'm very pleased with the 2.0-XFCE-Version and I think I will
use this version as long as possible.

But I have to admit that I'm old-fashioned.I can still hear
"never touch a running system".... :)
