Thank you!
Was not sure about dependencies and compatibility but your word was enough as a guarantee.

p.s. Works fine.

#2 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » webkit still running after closing browser » 2022-05-22 10:01:14

Logged into my Arch and tested both browsers 'vimb' and 'luakit' with 'fb' and youtube' and there is no such issue. There is no running processes left after closing either browser.
Sinse I am posting this from my Arch I decided to check 'webkit' version for comparison. (Just in case.)

 ~ # Qs webkit2gtk
local/webkit2gtk 2.34.3-1
    Web content engine for GTK
 ~ # Qs luakit
local/luakit 2.3-1
    Fast, small, webkit based browser framework extensible by Lua

Before logging into Arch I tried Artix's browser 'epiphany' (via usb) which is also based on 'webkit'. It did not have such issue either. All processes stopped running once the browser was closed.

Hello everybody!

I would like to suggest one package that is available for 'ubuntu' and 'mxlinux' to be adopted by Devuan and made available in the repos.
'foliate' - e-book reader with many features including highlighting and annotations, nice gui, reads most popular formats

Thank you for the excellent distro!

p.s. if this is not appropriate or not allowed, please delete the post.

#4 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » webkit still running after closing browser » 2022-05-20 09:35:25

that's kind of disturbing... anyway, thank you for sharing!

back to the original issue in regard to that new info...
I tested both 'luakit' and 'vimb' with 'fb' and 'youtube' separately and both leave 'webkit' processes running after closing the browsers - the difference is that 'fb' leaves two processes while 'youtube' leaves one process running... I hope someone knowledgeable will figure out how to address this issue cause right now I have to manually kill those processes every time I close the browser...

Hello everybody!

Got some freezes lately while using either 'facebook' or 'youtube'. Because 'moc' is usually runng I noticed it starts with chopping the sound and then the system freezes. Because I alternate 'luakit' and 'vimb' I wasn't sure which browser to blame for this. But today 'moc' wasn't playing and I got only 'vimb' open on 'fb' - one window on 'fb' and one window on another website. So I closed 'vimb' I checked the 'task-manager' and 'htop'. Both showed 'webkit process' still running.
Interestingly enough, after I opened 'vimb' to post here those processes are still running yet 'vimb' is working fine while 'moc' is playing.
How to proceed to prevent this from happening again?

Hello everybody!

a couple of days ago changed repos from 'chimaera' to 'daedalus'
now 'apt upgrade' gives

# apt upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 libwacom9 : Depends: libwacom-common (= 2.2.0-1) but 1.8-2 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

is this ok cause 'apt-get upgrade' works without warnings or issues?

#9 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » [SOLVED] scid phalanx or toga not found » 2022-04-18 13:54:11

well, it did not give any error messages so I thought there must be something wrong with the installation.
reinstalled everything and made sure all the engines appear in the engine window.
now it works.

p.s. this is the second or third time an app works differently in Devuan from the way I am used to it in Arch. probably my expectations are playing tricks to me.

Installed 'scid' plus 'phalanx' and 'toga' but still get 'phalanx or toga not found' message when try to play a tactical game.

Any ideas what else is missing?

#14 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » terminal display in title bar » 2022-04-10 17:04:57

tried both suggestions on that page and with both get same output

$ vim newfile
vim newfile $

it also started adding the current folder after the 'user@domain' so all that was seen was actually the 'user@domain' which was not very helpful.

that's with 'xfce4-terminal'.
with 'terminator' it did not work at all.

so I copied the '.bashrc' from Arch and added

trap 'echo -ne "\033]2;$(history 1 | sed "s/^[ ]*[0-9]*[ ]*//g")\007"' DEBUG

it's not as good as I was expecting it to be but it's better.

#15 Re: Off-topic » What are you reading/want to read ? » 2022-04-10 16:52:26

Have just finished 'General's daughter', Nelson DeMille.
Excellent military detective novel.
Lots of suspects, lots of good dialog, plus some very clever observations from the two main characters regarding both professional and personal relationships.

"It’s a problem, you know, Paul, dealing with stupid people. You project your own intelligence and rationality onto a person who is a complete idiot, and he lets you down."

There is a movie based on the book starring Travolta but it does not match the book's quality.

p.s. it's for 18+ readers because of the details of the private life of the victim.

Hello everybody!

When I use 'vim' with 'xfce4-terminal' the name of the opened file doesn't appear in the title bar. Instead it shows either 'Untitled' or ' user@domain'.

When I use vim with 'terminator' it shows '/usr/bin/vim' but not the file's name.

Is it possible to show opened file name in both?
I already have 'replace initial title' activated in both.

p.s. Even when I open either 'terminator' or 'xfce4-terminal' as 'root' it doesn't show 'root@domain' but still 'user@domain'.
What is missing here?

Hello everybody!

I use 'moc' to play radio streams. I have playlist with 'http' streams that works fine.
Recently one of the streams stopped working. I got the new stream address from their site but it's 'https' and moc cannot play it.
I installed 'cmus' cause in the past (on Arch Linux) it was working with streams that 'moc' cannot play.
To my surprise 'cmus' (on Devuan) couldn't play it either.
Any suggestions are appreciated!
Thank you in advance!

p.s. For the record, I can play 'https' streams with 'mpv'.

Excellent article, written 10 years ago, very relevant

Your brain on pseudoscience: the rise of popular neurobollocks

The human brain, it is said, is the most complex object in the known universe. That a part of it “lights up” on an fMRI scan does not mean the rest is inactive; nor is it obvious what any such lighting-up indicates; nor is it straightforward to infer general lessons about life from experiments conducted under highly artificial conditions. Nor do we have the faintest clue about the biggest mystery of all – how does a lump of wet grey matter produce the conscious experience you are having right now, reading this paragraph? How come the brain gives rise to the mind? No one knows.

So, instead, here is a recipe for writing a hit popular brain book. You start each chapter with a pat anecdote about an individual’s professional or entrepreneurial success, or narrow escape from peril. You then mine the neuroscientific research for an apparently relevant specific result and narrate the experiment, perhaps interviewing the scientist involved and describing his hair. You then climax in a fit of premature extrapolation, inferring from the scientific result a calming bromide about what it is to function optimally as a modern human being. Voilà, a laboratory-sanctioned Big Idea in digestible narrative form. This is what the psychologist Christopher Chabris has named the “story-study-lesson” model, perhaps first perfected by one Malcolm Gladwell. A series of these threesomes may be packaged into a book, and then resold again and again as a stand-up act on the wonderfully lucrative corporate lecture circuit.

Description: Simple web browser by suckless community
 surf is a simple web browser based on WebKit/GTK+. It is able to display
 websites and follow links. It supports the XEmbed protocol which makes it
 possible to embed it in another application. Furthermore, one can point surf to
 another URI by setting its XProperties.

Got 2.1 from their site.
How to run it without installing? Any tips?

Devuan 32-bit
A week ago tested IceCat, IceWeasel, Abrowser
Abrowser worked fine (fakebook) and I will keep it as a replacement for FF.
IceCat couldnt load fakebook for about 3 min and I killed it.
IceWeasel worked alright but used too much resources compared to Abrowser.
p.s. I use fakebook and reddit to test browsers cause they are the heaviest sites I use.

Hello everybody!

I started using 'surf' browser for fakebook and it works fine.
But every time I get the same warnings

#25 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » lost tilda window how to bring it back » 2022-03-02 12:08:36

I guess I did not explain it clearly.
I can start a new instance of 'tilda'. In fact, the new instance starts with the old settings (prior the change).
I just cannot bring the lost window to foreground and I have no idea where to look for it.
Both 'pid' and 'task-manager' show it is running somewhere but where?
Should I consider it lost cause and just kill the process?
