PostPosted: Sat 09 Sep 2017, 16:04    Post subject: mypaint 1.3.0  

Mypaint 1.3.0 available 48 mb

Edit: fixed a few more icons

mypaint-fd64-1.3.0-x86_64.txz
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7JZA8XWblrSdTdOS0xsNFpENGM

I have put together a package for mypaint 1.3.0 which is the latest.
Latest feature is the perspective tool. Go to mypaint site to learn how to use it.

https://community.mypaint.org/t/testers-wanted-perspective-mode-early-stages/369


I installed it in /opt and the only way of launching it is to click on Folder
or AppRun. Most of the icons show properly in the window.
Quitting the app requires clicking the upper right box.
Whenever error messages appear just click 'Ignore'

Thanks Jake.

I found a font-smoothing script that helps improving the look of wine tremendously, https://askubuntu.com/a/219795
Download and edit it; change "whiptail" to "Xdialog" and you're good to go.
I chose the recommended option 3, ClearType RGB, and it made a big difference. I also changed the resolution from 96 dpi (default) to 112.
I played with some themes, but decided not to install one because some applications, i.e., irfanview, don't work well with themes.

Great tip! I'll be using this from now on.

PostPosted: Sat 23 Sep 2017, 22:22    Post subject: VirtualBox  

I couldn't find any VirtualBox packages for Fatdog; apologies if I missed yours Embarassed . TheAsterisk's other kernels pet package does not successfully convert to txz package. debs ask for too many libs.

The purpose of this post is to report that "All distributions AMD64" installers from Oracle work well in Fatdog 710. 4.3.40 worked with no issues. https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Download_Old_Builds. Newer ones report numerous errors when run script is run.

The install is 170MB, excessive for occasional use, so I used sandbox & sb2dir to make an sfs, ~80MB. Smile >>EDIT: details of this process are in the attachment.

Edit 12/3/2017: latest VB 5.2.2 works on FD720, but kernel modules were not made automatically this time. Details in attachment. sfs is 89M.

Hi Jake, I'm an avid opera-developer user, and I have my own sfs build script for it. I've learned a few things while building the sfs of now more than 30 opera-developer versions. Here's what I do to prepare the build folder from the unpacked .deb package folder:
Code:

# Replace "-developer" with "-stable" or "" appropriately for Opera stable below.

# [2] Musts
Press button 'Terminal' and type:
  chown root.root usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera-developer/opera_sandbox
  chmod 4755 usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera-developer/opera_sandbox
# This worked up to Opera Developer 46.0.2556 - the last version to run with GTK-2.
# ln -sfT libnotify.so usr/lib64/libnotify.so.4

# More recent opera (chromium) builds need:
#  install pkg gtk3-3.18.7-x86_64-1
#  install pkg libnotify-0.7.7-x86_64-1

# [3] Video Codecs
Download the opera-developer-ffmpeg-codecs package from the Herecura repo:
 64-bit https://repo.herecura.eu/herecura/x86_64/

Press button 'Terminal' and type:
  mkdir usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera-developer/lib_extra
  rox usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera-developer/lib_extra
 Extract libffmpeg.so from the herecura package to this subfolder.
 Test page: http://cnn.com/video

# [5] Check post-install script:
  defaulttexteditor ./postinst

# [6] **REMEMBER** to
: rm top-level .deb control files


All files in your sfs belong to user spot instead of root. Did you package your sfs from inside the Downloads folder?

Hi step, thanks for the info. Your instructions only set 'opera_sandbox' as root, could you clarify if should be the case for all files in the sfs?

root should own all the files.

If you downloaded the .deb and unpacked it in a directory _outside_ the Downloads folder root should automatically be the owner of all files. You want this.

If instead you unpacked it inside the Downloads folder spot is the owner. (This is a "magic" property of the Fatdog64 Downloads folder.)

Thanks step. I understand now. I've uploaded a new SFS and linked to it in my previous post. I've looked at the BETA and DEV versions of Opera, but did not have a good experience with them due to bugs.

Thanks for the new opera-stable SFS! If you ever get a hitch to try opera-dev again I'll be around with my SFS.
