NEWS 180221 about DebEX KDE Plasma a Refracta Build
I have made a new version of DebEX KDE Plasma Live DVD. It replaces version 171203. Its a pure Debian system. (Unstable/Experimental). I.e.: There are no Ubuntu or Kubuntu elements involved.

SONY XPERIA X Compact - data transfer

Posted 09-15-2017 at 08:29 AM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)
Updated 09-15-2017 at 08:31 AM by error_401

Got a new phone and ran into the usual trouble of how to get my pics and stuff on the phone to my computer.

Run Raspberry Pi PIXEL Desktop on a PC or Mac an Exton modified Build 161223 with Refracta Tools

Posted 12-24-2016 at 01:24 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 12-24-2016 at 02:40 AM by exton (More INFO)

Yesterday I read that the Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced the release of a new PIXEL image that can be booted on a PC or Mac. Study this site. I saw immediately that there was no installer included, which I thought was a little disappointing. Come to think of Refracta tools, which work very well in Debian and Ubuntu. I quickly made a “remix” of the Raspberry Pi Foundation PIXEL image. My remix thus include Refracta tools. This means that you can easily install the system to hard...
