Yes, but I wish I had more time. It might be possible to port over the KDE Neon Plasma release to MX/Buster, since they have a version based on Ubuntu 18.04, but it's a bazillion package ports. I was also looking at an Ubuntu Deepin PPA, which has a much more manageable number of packages.

Did you mean to post that in this topic @Steve?

Hmmm--not that reply, but I can't remember what I was replying to.

I've added Strawberry 0.7.2 to the repo for Buster and above, since it now needs at least Qt 5.8, but Sid builds are failing--it says it can't find pthreads--Buster and Bullseye builds, no problem.

Also added Audacity 2.4.2 for Buster, and a newer cmake for Buster, which it requires as a build-depend.

I removed Strawberry from siduction. Tried both the upstream Bullseye build and yours but it had a massive memory leak as mentioned above. I raised an issue at Github and the dev seemed to think it was a Sid problem so closed it without action.
There's certainly no shortage of music players for Linux and I mainly use your Deadbeef build both in Buster and siduction.

I'll take a look at it. Debian has 3.0.0~0git20200408+dfsg upstream, and maybe I can use that as a template for 3.0.2. I'd have to put it in another repo, since this one is for apps that have some sort of connection to multimedia.

Clipgrab updated to 3.8.14 for Debian 10 thru Sid. Stretch builds fail, though the same patched versions build on my own Stretch pbuild setups for MX 17...

I tried to use Mystiq just now in Buster and it won't start from menu or terminal, nada. :(

Code: Select all

$ mystiq
bash: /usr/bin/mystiq: No such file or directory
It is there though:

Code: Select all

$ find /usr/bin/ -name mystiq
/usr/bin/mystiq

Code: Select all

$ apt policy mystiq
mystiq:
  Installed: 20.03.23-1obs
  Candidate: 20.03.23-1obs
  Version table:
 *** 20.03.23-1obs 500
        500 http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevepassert/Debian_10  Packages

What is the answer for this command?

Code: Select all

which mystiq
Perhaps also this:

Code: Select all

ls -l /usr/bin/mystiq

Did that already:

Code: Select all

which mystiq
/usr/bin/mystiq
ls -l /usr/bin/mystiq
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 17004004 Jul 19 04:53 /usr/bin/mystiq
All normal.
Pretty sure this version used to work. I purged and reinstalled just in case but still won't launch. Finished the task at hand with ffmpeg in console so no panic, just weird. No other applications have failed to start like this.

So far, it needs at least four additional python3 packages backported from Bullseye for its version, plus its Debian patches need reworking for the 3.0.2 release, so it's not a trivial backport. I am doing Supertuxkart 1.2 for Buster and Stretch, though--that's a lot simpler! https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... pertuxkart

The SandZanzibar (whatever) updates don't appear to be practicable in Buster. :(

I don't have a clue about the MystiQ issue--it still seems to be working in MX.

Uploading sources for Inkscape 1.0.1 for Buster and testing.

Updating audio-recorder to current 3.1.3 for Jessie through Sid, since it's not in Debian. This is a handy little app that lets you record any sound stream on your machine.

Well, Strawberry 0.7.2 is now refusing to build on testing and Sid anyway; Cmake says it can no longer find gnutls. I have to see if it's been replaced by something else in upstream Debian, though apparently the old build-deps are still OK. Maybe they no longer pull in the gnutls dev package there.

Doesn't surprise me about Strawberry. It's based on Clementine which is based on the original Amarok which was superseded in KDE3.5 many years ago. Your DeadBeef build is still working fine so I'm not worried.
A heads-up about DeadBeef's Musical Spectrum plugin which I love. It has recently (13 Aug 20) been replaced by a new version which has more features and config options but is more taxing on CPU/graphics. On my old Core2Duo 8500 system with Nvidia GTX560 and nouveau it's almost unusable so I reverted to the old 2016 version, but the new one is fine on my newer i5 6500 system with GTX970 and nvidia drivers although I think it uses a bit more CPU than the old version.

I added Strawberry 0.8.3 to the repo, but again it's only building for Buster. I'll try and fix it. It says the new version fixes a gstreamer memory leak.

Edit: should be fixed, apparently needs libgnutls28-dev listed as a build-depend for upstream, where it gets pulled in automatically by some other B-D on Buster.

Krita updated to 4.4.1, ClipGrab to 3.8.15, Pithos to 1.5.1.

Would that be the memory leak for which I opened an issue on Github and the dev closed it saying it wasn't their problem? :|

Damfino! I was just quoting the changelog.

Re: rats...did you see that news story about the guy waiting for a bus in NYC a week before Halloween when the sidewalk collapsed beneath him and he fell 15 feet into a horror movie? (aka an abandoned cellar swarming with huge rats, aka just another day in New York?) There's even a security video of it happening, with him clinging desperately to the side of the hole for a second before disappearing.

My theory is that the rats were testing their people trap...

Updating Strawberry to 0.8.4. I still don't know if the memory leak is fixed, but this versions adds the ability to choose the Qt 5 style in settings, as well as choose to have the tray icon show track progress. Tip: if you have qt5-style-kvantum installed, you can choose that, then either use the default kvantum style set in Kvantum Manager, or use any kvantum style on a per-app basis as set in the Manager.
