Rant: what was wrong/"bad" with mplayer-gui/gmplayer?

I don't get it. It wasn't like it inspired someone to say that it's the GUI that one ever dreamed about, but was fully functional, and funnily enough more reliable than all the alternative GUIs that used mplayer as a back-end, as far as I've looked at. I guess the decision eventually resulted in a (current to me at least) problem with subtitles/fontconfig, as subtitles will work on mplayer and mplayer2, but not on gmplayer, even though it never used to be that way before.

It's not...

Dongle not working

Posted 09-01-2012 at 02:39 PM by davetesc

Just updated to mint13KDE and as with all previous updates since mint 10 huawei e160 dongle won't work. This is across the board on all distros I've tried in last couple of years. Tried allsorts of fixes but have now found sakis3g script, this works as long as I boot without dongle plugged in.

Retrobattle available for Gentoo

There is now a package in Gentoo Portage for Retrobattle. Just "emerge retrobattle". (You may have to unmask it first.)

Retrobattle is a retro-style arcade game by Daniel Remar and Andreas Remar. It's like of one of the early NES games where you move a character around a maze on a screen, shooting stuff (robots, gigantic snakes...) and collecting items (coins, super weapons...). Authentic look and feel, although somehow "smoother" than the old games I remember....
