Cinnamon 3.8.6 for Porteus 4 (x86_64)

Thanks neko :) Porteus 4 Cinnamon got ISOMaster? No, we decided to remove it from all DEs, as archive managers (file roller, engrampa etc) can open isos, and to build Porteus iso itself one can use the make_iso.sh on the top level porteus directory. You can try neko's iso from above. Just make sure ...

Wow Michele13 , I just went through your document and you have done brilliant work. Congratulations! :hi: I myself have zero knowledge about debian and its pkg manager (apt and dpkg), but reading your doc and also based on a comment you made elsewhere about debian being as rock solid as slackware yo...

perl-tk compatible with perl of Porteus 4.0

rych , I am traveling so will not be able to create an xzm. Since nobody has replied, try this: 1. Activate 05-devel.xzm module 2. Update usm using usm -u all 3. After that, exit that terminal and in a new terminal run usm sbo -b perl-tk I guess you know this nuance, the terminal needs to be exited...

Microsoft aquires GitHub?

Yes, they did. Is it good or bad - I wont comment on that.
But thankfully there are other alternatives - migrate to gitlab, bitbucket. That's what's best about this ecosystem - there is always an alternative.

Thanks for the links n0ctilucient :good:

VLC 3.0.2 for Porteus 4.0 KDE

It sure does.
As a technical info, it would not build on earlier versions of KDE (like rc4 for eg) because of gstreamer dependency. But on the 4.0 final KDE, since gstreamer became a dependecy for KDE and I had to include it, it also made VLC possible for KDE :thumbsup:

VLC 3.0.2 for Porteus 4.0 KDE

You're welcome francois :)

Looks also to be a very popular module, based on the number of downloads.

You can merge these additional xzms to the lyx xzm and create a single module.

Qt 5.9.5 for Porteus 4.0

BTW, have you heard about this Qt Lite? It seems interesting, don't you think? No, but I agree, it sounds quite interesting. I guess it is useful for embedded systems that that run one single main application, so that all other parts of qt that are not needed can be stripped off. Hard to do that fo...

LyX 2.3.0

but, curiously, spell-checker seems to be disabled in his build. That's coz I just built the packages, saw it ran fine and created the module :) . I've never used lyx in my life. That's why I asked you to verify if everything is working fine. No problem, I created a new module for you for 4.0. Chec...

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

Sorry,jss, logged again to the net just now. No problem :) I think you misunderstood. As mentioned in my previous post, your rootcopy directory has wrong permissions. Because of which you can see that your root file system is now owned by guest and only has exec permissions for user (from the outpu...

Qt 5.9.5 for Porteus 4.0

Cool :Yahoo!:

Yes, you are right. Qt modules need to be rebuilt every time Slackware bumps icu4c.
