making 'Map Scale Legend' by Alejandro Grijalba work in GIMP 2.10

Posted 06-23-2019 at 11:50 PM by Yury_T

Just edit mapscale.scm in any text editor and change three occurences of NORMAL to NORMAL-MODE

(on linux, the mapscale.scm resides in $HOME/.config/GIMP/2.10/scripts)

The trivial diff for that:

Code:

How to build LibreOffice 3.6.7.2 in Slackware 14.2 (in 2017)

Posted 02-15-2017 at 11:34 AM by Yury_T

This build was done on Slackware64 14.2 with some additional packages installed. Considering the build instruments in Slackware, this should be replicatable on any non-Slackware installation. As a result you get LibreOffice installation, capable of working with legacy binary formats; as a nice bonus, the 3rd series LO isn't as badly bloated with non-features as the 4th (same 500 megs, but without support for those formats) and 5th (800 megs) ones.

I won't go into the fine details...

NVIDIA 304.* driver on 4.* series kernel (MSI K9N6PGM2 motherboard, NVIDIA GT610 adapter)

Posted 02-05-2016 at 06:34 AM by Yury_T
Updated 02-09-2016 at 10:16 PM by Yury_T

Couple of days ago, I've run into a problem with 340.* NVIDIA driver not being able to load on this system -- some issue with IRQ sharing (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi....php?p=5494905). The previous 304.* series driver(s) worked okay for years on the very same hardware, with 3.* series kernel.

As nobody offered any advice, I've had a notion of trying to install the 304.* driver (304.131, actually). However, while it was building okay, it couldn't load the kernel...

HyperTransport Sync Flood Error, 3.* series kernel , MSI mobo

Posted 08-22-2014 at 04:13 AM by Yury_T

After installing the slackware 14.1/amd64 (kernel 3.*) on the machine with MSI K8-something motherboard (integrated nvidia adapter, nouveaux nvidia driver), I began to experience freezes after start of Firefox, of all things. Memtest showed no faults, voltage tuning didn't help.

The problem has been (seemingly) solved by setting the on-board video adapter memory window size (or whatever this setting is called) to the minimal 16Mb (the default was 64Mb).

How to set up SQLite database as a (read-only) bibliography database in the LibreOffice/OpenOffice

Posted 10-24-2013 at 02:49 AM by Yury_T

Folks have not-so-positive experience with the LibO/OOO default bibliography database, what with it being effectively either of HSQLDB or CSV text type, for one. One would want to have more choice as to the database type, and to have it storaged more effectively, and in single file, preferrably. Also, there are many popular tools for other database engines, and HSQLDB seems somewhat isolated in this aspect, restricted to all-Java projects, too.

E.g., you might want to have two sets...
