I used the link in your signature to get to MX repo & Packages for MX-19, there are 3 packages for conky, should I install all these 3 packages?

conky-toggle-mx_19.11_all.deb

conky-manager_2.4+dfsg1-2mx19+1_amd64.deb

You don't need the dbgsym one, that's for debugging. And conky-toggle-mx just enables you to switch Conky on and off.

The MX version of conky-manager is a dfsg-safe rebuild (Debian Free Software Guidelines) where the built-in conky themes have been removed, mostly because they included non-free or even pirated fonts along with the theme, or we could not determine what license applied at all. We replaced those with mx-conky and mx-conky-data, which provides themes that we could feel safe redistributing.

You might still be able to find .7z theme packs for Conky Manager 2 out on the Net that you can load into it--it's been a while since I looked for them.

I noticed that Youtube's recent changes to their API borked VLC's ability to play Youtube URLs, but if you save this page https://git.videolan.org/?p=vlc.git;a=b ... ua;hb=HEAD

as "youtube.luac", then copy it over VLC's existing youtube.luac file, it fixes it. For my 64-bit system, the file lives in

/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/vlc/lua/playlist/youtube.luac

but you'll have to change that if you run a different architecture. For MX Linux, since we build our own version of VLC to make sure va-api keeps working, I pushed new rebuilds with that file change patched in.

Thank you. Finally got things sorted out. Must be having a couple of 'off' days. <sigh>

Kodi 18.5, backported from Experimental, added for Buster through Sid:

https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... /kodi-18.X

It suggests the spectrum visualization addon, but that doesn't seem to work. Debian has version 1.1 of that, but the matching version for Kodia 18 Leia is 3.0.3. I'll see if I can build that and get it to work.

Turns out that the present Kodi packages have a bug--no subtitles available--because it needs to be built with a newer fontforge-nox than Buster has, and the control file didn't note that . I worked around yet another bug backporting fontforge on the OBS, and updated Kodi packages should be done in an hour or two.

Added Blender 2.8.2 sources for a Buster backport a couple of hours ago, and the amd64 build died a step from the finish line when it ran out of disk space allotted to the build VM. The arm64 build succeeded, so I bumped the disk up to 40 GB and restarted the builds.

Added GIMP 2.10.18 sources for a Buster build, along with some of its newer required libspiro, babl, gegl, and meson ports. That should be finishing up shortly.

Heya Steve, not a high priority or anything, but can you try to finesse building the shadow source package into installable .debs? I know some of the things will conflict with util-linux ( like the su binary ) but would prefer particularly su over the util-linux version. Either by direct replacement, or preferably using the debian-alterantives system.

I know the shadow source package builds fairly easily as I tested it using the old make && make install method in one of my disposable VMs. I would like a proper version installed through the package manager though, and didn't really get anywhere with debuild, even with the already debianized source available through the buster source repo.

I'm sorry, but I have no idea what the "shadow" source package is. :(

In other news, I have updated the Blender for Buster to 2.8.2a, which is a bugfix build, and it's building atm.

Re: conky-manager in MX, we have an updated version in the test repo that claims to support the newer 1.10 conky themes out of the box...

I've also backported Mypaint 2.0.0 for both Buster and Stretch bases for MX, but don't have the time to make and upload OBS sources today.
