Have a look at resource usage comparison figures with GIMP and Libreoffice use cases.

As for how memory is freed after use, I presume the same applies to AppImages, because both bundling methods share basically the same nature.

Cheers!

P.S.: Would you please correct the Google Earth link @ first post so that it points so post #73 ?
Cheers!

I don't get your issue. In the post #73 you link to the post by wread, and in his post is the URL to the module you wanted added. His post is the #62157 one:
Google-earth-pro-7.3.0.3827 for Porteus (Post by wread #62157)
In this post is the actual URL to the xzm module by wread; the link to the module which goes to here:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/251o4a210 ... d.xzm/file

And I included the below link:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/251o4a210 ... d.xzm/file

Please compare and see that both links are the very same URL.

Should I also add a link to his #62157 post so that there is the URL to the module and the link to his post that includes the URL to the module?
Cheers!
Yours Rava

Not exactly. I wanted to link to this --> viewtopic.php?p=79341#p79341 where the script to build GEarth appimage is showed, rather than direct linking to the .xzm module provided by wread which is showed below for the sake of complete the information.

Cheers!

Okay I also add a link to the post with the script but keep the URL to the module in there since most users would prefer downloading the finished module anyway.
Cheers!

Done, hopefully. :)

For the future: better PM me with the request. Include two quotes.
The first quoting the old post, only the part you want to be changed.

The 2nd quote is a made up one, here you write the part as you want to have it .


This way it should be obvious and less error-prone and so way quicker for all sides.
Cheers!

Unofficial MuPDF appimage latest (1.18 at this time).

MuPDF is a lightweight viewer that can read PDF, XPS, CBZ, EPUB, and FB2 documents.

Starting from version 1.15, its OpenGL based incarnation a dialog window allows selecting documents instead of invoking them as an argument in a command line interpreter.

Once the document is open, press 'F1' to show available commands/options.

Cheers!

Mo biggie. Do you agree to my ideas how to best handle that - the PM with the two variants of a quote in it?
It was the easiest and most foolproof approach I could come up with but others might have even better ideas. :)

Sounds intriguing.

Just a tip: When you find a site that explains the program in a good way, or it it has its own wikipedia entry, just quote a bit of the site praising the program and add the link. That helps getting more people interesting in an unknown to them program.

At least that is my sneaky approach to giving out a program prior unheard of on Port forum, like I did with interlink.
Cheers!

Great array of packages for porteus ver 5.0. It could help a few to be more patient the time a package managing device is thought of.

Thanks. :)

There are enough officially tools for Slackware package management and lots of explanations how to use:
https://docs.slackware.com/slackware:package_management
https://www.linux.com/training-tutorial ... anagement/
http://www.slackbook.org/html/package-management.html
https://slackpkg.org/documentation.html

Since you did not refer to dependency resolution only to package managing. But yours truly still delivers on dependency resolution:
Slackware's native package management suite neither has nor supports dependency resolution. Because the third-party add-ons all use Slackware's native package tools, they are bound by this same limitation, at least to some extent, but some of them try to mitigate this in various ways; the following is an overview.
(add Crime & Order sound effect) The page then lists programs. https://slackwiki.com/Third_Party_Package_Managers

HTH

@rava:

We are talking here about something akin to usm or slapt-get. Something really simple. Or bundles in great numbers or at will. :)

Well usm is dead - unlike someone wants to overtake its development and continue - Jay Flood writes in its code it being # Copyright (C) 2014-2020 Jay Flood
but also it being free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

And what's wrong with slapt-get?
