Posted by roberts on May 13 2006,22:42Another round of cool extensions. Some new. Some updates.
Check them out. Read their .info files.
Thanks to all makers for their contributions.

john-126.96.36.199.dsl, John the Ripper
Until they appear on the official board, you can find them here:

Posted by mikshaw on May 17 2006,21:15Known issues:
setfont.sh in consolefonts.uci needs work, although it does basically what it says it does. The current version that I have at home now uses whiptail instead of a for-do loop and includes the beginnings of keymap support, but the mydsl will not be updated until I have a better understanding of how keymaps and unicode maps relate to console fonts.
soxmix in sox.uci has trouble combining mp3s. At this time i'm not sure if it's a bug in the program or if it's my fault.
Xtdesk icons are buggy in evilwm. Again, I don't know the cause of this yet.

1. I couldn't locate the sgi-fonts. Looked in mydsl and ibiblio.
2. Any true-type fonts anywhere? Would really like mstt or bitstream for Firefox.
Posted by mikshaw on May 18 2006,01:55The SGI fonts package is in the "testing" directory of myDSL, as is everything posted in the "testing area" forum =o)
I have never done any truetype font packages for DSL because i don't think DSL supports them natively. artwiz, sgi, lfp-fixed, and terminus are all collections of bitmap fonts, and the console fonts cannot be used in X (or at least i don't know how to use them in X). Honestly I've never even tried to use truetype, opentype, or type1 fonts in DSL, so i have no idea what extra libs they require. It could be that all you need is a little configuration tweaking, or maybe you need some additional stuff from XFree86 or Xorg.
