That mirror has been around for a long time.  Sometimes geeks can be a bit  gross.

Happy to hear that you got that sorted.  I hadn't thought to ask about themes other than mention the havoc that GTK3 is causing.  There are  many outdated, unusable themes in the repos.  I am just now getting around to theming ascii.  The wallpaper is almost finished then I'll move on to the window theme.  I already know that there are problems with CPP so will have to find something else to use as a base.

Well, that's stressful.  I guess this falls under the 'it seemed like a good idea at the time' category . . .

Hi

Can anyone confirm, this issue is on his xfce also?

No problem here with my xfce4-terminal in ascii.  As I suspected and mentioned above the scrollbar is nearly invisible until the lines go beyond the end of the page.  Then a very narrow nearly invisible gray bar only a few mm wide pops up.  Clicking on it turns the clearlooks color.  Move the cursor away and it's invisible again.  It's yet another GTK3 annoyance.  There are also several scrollbar options in Preferences so make sure it's not disabled there.

#10 Re: Other Issues » Firefox goes to be just title bar with a thin grey line just below » 2017-11-20 18:19:58

To answer your question . . . some of us here are on the dev team while other devs stay on mostly irc and rarely come here.

#11 Re: Other Issues » [SOLVED] <Ascii> xfce4-terminal; No Scroll bar » 2017-11-20 16:24:49

The little bit I've played with ascii I've noticed that the scrollbar on some GTK3 apps (synaptic for one) is rather hidden and very thin even when it does appear.  So try playing with your mouse to see if that's the problem in your case.

It sounds like the window could be getting accidentally "shaded" via a mouse action.

As I recall, double left clicking or scrolling the scroll wheel on the window title bar causes the window to roll/up down.  You could also temporarily switch to window decorations which support the shade button for a while and see how it goes.

Yes, there is no action button in the title bar but Clearlooks-Phenix-Purpy does shade with the scroll wheel and you might have accidentally done that.

Last time I chose a mirror during installation

When I install Devuan (during the installation, not before), I am prompted to choose a mirror to get additional packages. So you advise me to use:

- pkgmaster.devuan.org
- auto.mirror.devuan.org

Use one or the other.  For jessie, auto.mirror.devuan.org is fine.  For more complete mirrors (including the file descriptions) use pkgmaster.  Note that the mirrors are not yet integrated into pkgmaster.

I don't remember exactly but I think we have to choose a location (country) before selecting the mirror. In which country(ies) are these 2 mirrors located?

Sorry, can't help you there.  Haven't installed using the Debian installer in a very long time.  I'm guessing the default would still be auto.mirror.

#15 Re: Installation » Installation: mirror or DVD.iso? » 2017-11-19 17:40:12

I am confused by your question.  The distribution mirrors serve all the available isos including the DVD.  Or are you perhaps talking about the package mirrors which serve repositories merged by amprolla3 at pkgmaster.devuan.org?  For now, just use the latter or auto.mirror.devuan.org as the additional package mirrors have not yet been fully integrated into Devuan's delivery system.  You also might want to post your sources.list here.

Just what is an 'actual developer' and what is 'everything else'?   Are you really that clueless what it takes to do what Devuan is trying to do?  And please golinux - all lower case . . .

As to amprolla3 and the mirrors . . . as fsmithred noted, how those mirrors will be integrated into Devuan's delivery system is still in process.

#17 Re: Devuan Derivatives » [MiyoLinux] New Releases Uploaded » 2017-11-18 22:16:14

@Miyo . . . do you have screenies of your themes anywhere?  And what desktops are they for?

I just noticed a very slight color variation in the Adwaita theme's color in Ascii. Strange.

OT . . . I can really relate to this.  Trying to theme ascii and there is a significant color variation between the image in the viewer/editor and as the desktop wallpaper even on jessie.   I have no idea what's going on . . .

Whew...so it's not just me...

Well, I fixed my issue which was that I had tweaked the brightness/saturation settings for a desktop gradient.  Once I reset them to default, everything returned to normal. Hope your solution is that easy.  The hard part is remembering . . .

@greenjeans . . . it's possible to use apulse.

#22 Re: Off-topic » Firefox Quantum » 2017-11-17 17:21:37

Well, I have 23 addons.  Many of them help to put FF back like it was before Mozilla screwed the pooch. Without them, being online would really, really suck.

#23 Re: Off-topic » Firefox Quantum » 2017-11-17 16:21:55

And I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you . . . FF without the addons I've been using for years is a non-starter regardless of how fast it supposedly is. My old FF is pretty snappy so had no complaints about speed before.  The biggest annoyance I have is that it's a memory hog and needs to be reloaded regularly.

@Golinux

Fsmithred is right, I used the wrong thread where the openrc ascii iso is mentioned to add my excitment of getting it to work after a gfx glitch.  Would you be kind enough to clip the messages from https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=6252#p6252 onwards (mine at least) and bring them to this thread which seems more appropriate?

There is a way to split a thread and start a new post but I can't find a way to merge posts into another thread.  I suggest you repost your comments in a more appropriate place and then delete the posts in this thread.  I can delete them if you are unable to do so but I will need the exact post #s.  I gave up trying to follow your experiments closely long ago so really not able to sort this on my own . . .
