Here is PeasyGlue v2.2. It can now save a glue job in the raw PNM format.

This is useful if your project has several steps. It's faster to save the intermediate steps as PNM.

How to clear the GTK FileChooser Recently Used list

I am posting this because I always forget how to do it myself.

1. Paste the following line into a terminal:
Code:
echo gtk-recent-files-max-age=0  >  /root/.gtkrc-2.0.mine

2. Reboot.
3. Start an app and open the FileChooser screen.
4. Select a file/folder. Now the list should reset. Repeat if necessary.

I found some places where Snappie didn't work, so I built packages for jamesbond's xscreenshot tool from here.

It installs into the Graphics menu.

There are no prompts - if you want to snap a window, you must open it first. Clicking elsewhere snaps the full screen. The snaps are stored in /root.

To take a snap with the menus open, run xscreenshot from a terminal
Code:
xscreenshot -k p -d 10

Read the instructions about the different key combinations.

Nice, thanks, added to custom repo (and also added to repo the (updated) packages you shared here earlier)

Just to mention, I mostly use "scrotdlg" for making screenshot, available in repos too, works well for me too.

I have been running OpenShot video editor from a squashfs module, which works well.

But OpenShot has no option to export a project into an ISO file for burning to DVD. However, it can generate a .dvd file which is the raw material for an ISO.

So I cobbled together the following code from an old PeasyDisc. Look for it in the AudioVideo menu. The dependencies are dvdauthor and genisoimage.

If you have Mplayer installed (from PeasyMP3), you can test your ISO before burning.

How to make a 64bit squashfs module for Google Earth Pro desktop version

1a. You will need a machine with some power - a Core i3 with 4GB RAM.
1b. You will probably need mesa accelerated graphics. See the instructions on Page 14 for building a module.

2a. Go here. Download google-earth-pro-stable_current_amd64.deb
2b. Download the attached google-earth-pro-desktop_1.0_amd64.deb. (It just contains a .desktop file.)

3a. Start in a 64bit CleanMode setup.
3b. Run: repo2sfs google-earth-pro-stable_current_amd64.deb
3c. At Pause A, go to /var/cache/apt/archives. Drop in the package google-earth-pro-desktop from Step 2b.
3d. Finish the build and load the module.

4a. Load your mesa module and do an X restart.
4b. Run Google Earth Pro from the Internet menu.

How to make a 64bit squashfs module for the Basilisk web browser

Basilisk is a relative of Mozilla/Firefox/Palemoon.

1. Get the tarball from here.
2. Extract it with unzipper. You will get a single folder named "basilisk". It does NOT contain a .desktop file.
3. Get the .deb package attached below.
4. Run: repo2sfs basilisk-desktop_1.0_amd64.deb
5. At Pause B, go to /tmp/repo2sfs.
6. Open the "opt" folder. Drop in the "basilisk" folder from Step 2.
7. Finish the build.
8. Look for Basilisk in the Internet menu.

5. At Pause B, go to /tmp/repo2sfs. Make a new folder named "opt".
6. Open the "opt" folder. Drop in the "basilisk" folder from Step 2.
7. Finish the build.
8. Look for Basilisk in the Internet menu.


Thanks, nice info, too bad, btw, that it seems to be only supported for 64-bit linux OS. Sad

Fred

How to make slideshows/screensavers in the Starter Kit

Install slideshow-qiv_1.1_all.deb attached below. This is a GTKdialog front-end for the qiv image viewer. The dependencies are qiv and xautolock. Look for it in the Graphics menu.

There are two ways that you can specify the source of image files for your slideshow:
- a folder, plus zero or more sublevels of folders.
- a text file containing the full paths of the target image files.
Hint: use Right-click > Copy paths > Paste.

Practice making some slideshows. Press the Q key to quit in the middle of a show.

Now to make a screensaver:

Create the folder /root/Screensaver. Drop in a collection of image files.
Run slideshow-qiv and test the show with source /root/Screensaver.

Go to /root/Startup. It contains the script named: xautolock_start
Code:
#!/bin/bash
xautolock -time 1 -locker "qiv -stfDi -d5 /root/Screensaver" &

Make the script executable with: chmod +x xautolock_start

Reboot (or just restart X).
For testing purposes, the timeout period is set at 1 minute. Once you have the screensaver working, increase it as desired.
You can kill the screensaver process during a session with: xautolock -exit

I installed florence and ran it from the command line.

It threw some error messages about the "accessibility bus".

So I installed this extra package: at-spi2-core

Then florence started to work.

Thank you for your help.
That was fast.
Now it works.
I really like that project and hope not to bother you,
with my naive questions.
My laptop is not so powerful and such OS makes it fly.
Thank you again.
