Getting iOS 10.x working with Slackware 14.2

Posted 03-10-2017 at 06:54 PM by kingbeowulf

The version of libimobiledevice-1.2.0 released Jan 28, 2015 and shipped with 14.2 stable is too old to support plug and play for newre iDevices. IPhones, etc will generate a mount or access error. For my work iPhone, I usually just want to dump photos and video. There are patches and workarounds - such as using iCloud. Just goes to show that in 2 years much changes in the mobile device space. There has been dead silence on requests for upstream to push a new release. For example: https://github.com/libimobiledevice/...ice/issues/456...

NEWS 20170309 ABOUT exGENT
I’ve made yet a new version (20170309) of exGENT based on Gentoo Linux. It uses Xfce 4.12.1 and kernel 4.9.12. It is for the 64 bit architecture. I call it exGENT 2017 Xfce4 Live DVD. It replaces version 20170303. The ISO file is of 2670 MB due to the fact that this version has a lot of packages pre-installed. Despite this exGENT version 170309 runs surprisingly fast from DVD or USB. Even in VirtualBox and VMware. Faster than most other Linux live systems. All installed...

Fixing MS or webcore font display issues.

Posted 03-09-2017 at 12:41 AM by kingbeowulf

There are numerous threads on LQ and elsewhere on how to pretty up fonts on Linux. However, I one thing has still bothered me for years: on some web sites the font rendering looked jagged despite using a system or downloaded font, sometimes a fallback font family, that looked fine elsewhere. It didn't matter which browser was used and sometimes affected LibreOffice, etc.

[SOLVED] "Really dead" dead keys on KDE apps, within Openbox, at least

For whatever reason I was having this issue for a while now. That means that when trying to type characters such as "" the result would be just "aoe".

Apparently it has something to do with xim/scim/ibus, or evdev, whatever.

Regardless, a "solution" was (to me) to have the following environment variable set:

Code:
export QT_IM_MODULE=xim
Which I'm adding to openbox' "environment" file and changing the...
