RaspEX Kodi Rpi3 with LXDE/OSMC Desktops and Kodi 18 RC5 Media Center “Leia” with Netflix, Plex and Amazon Video addons – Build 190117

Posted 01-17-2019 at 12:25 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

RaspEX Kodi Build 190117 with LXDE/OSMC Desktops is made especially for the new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, but can of course also be used on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. OSMC is based on Debian and Kodi Media Center. In RaspEX Kodi I’ve added the LXDE Desktop with many useful applications such as Wicd and NetworkManager. Makes it easy to configure your wireless network. I’ve also upgraded OSMC to a BETA version (Kodi 18 RC5 Leia), which makes it possible...

2018 iMac with High Sierra sometimes boots with no cursor -- a fix

Posted 01-06-2019 at 07:09 PM by flshope
Updated 01-13-2019 at 07:43 PM by flshope

I purchased an iMac all-in-one machine in June 2018. An immediate problem I encountered was that the machine sometimes booted with no cursor. The mouse and keyboard are both wireless. The keyboard always worked, but the mouse was rendered useless whenever the machine booted with no cursor, which was intermittent. Turning the mouse off and on (after fully booting) generated a screen acknowledgment that the mouse status had changed but did not bring up the cursor. The voice assistant Siri was no help...

NOTE: See updates at bottom of this post - last 1/5/19

Way back around new year's day during the winter of '19 (remember that kiddies?), LQ member Beryllos posted a New Year Puzzle and programming challenge in the Programming forum.

The goal of the puzzle is to generate as many whole numbers as possible between 0 and 100 using only the digits of the year, 2,0,1 and 9 in simple constant arithmetic expressions such as 9 * (10 - 2).

ExTiX 19.1.2, Build 190102, with LXQt 0.12, Kodi 18 “Leia”, Refracta Snapshot, Nvidia and kernel 4.20.0-exton

NEWS 190104 ABOUT ExTiX LXQt Mini 19.1.3, Build 190104
I’ve made a new “mini” version of ExTiX. The ISO file is now only of 837 MB, which is good if you want to run the system superfast from RAM. This build has everything Build 19.1.2 has except for Kodi 18. You can, however, install Kodi 18 Leia if you want. Use Synaptic for that. Watch this screenshot. You can (of course) install thousands of other packages if you want. Study all pre-installed packages in ExTiX 19.1.3.
