These were "lost" but now are "found". Scroll down to Sept 10 to see them
Posted by WDef on Oct. 07 2006,10:03I'm still having problems with scite.uci version 1.69 so I suggest downgrading to version 1.54, which I'm forwarding.
Meanwhile for a short time it can be downloaded < here >
I think v1.54 was the last that used gtk1 by default.

Are both now in the testing area.
Thanks to clacker
Posted by WDef on Oct. 17 2006,11:26BTW I forgot to mention - if people have tried the scite v1.69 uci, they should delete the ~/.SCiTEUserProperties file before launching the replacment scite v1.54.
The two versions use different (incompatible) syntax for some options in this file.

Posted by roberts on Oct. 20 2006,19:34An interesting new extension. Itialian translation of some of our scripts. See the info file for more.
Thanks to jls_legalize
Posted by mikshaw on Oct. 22 2006,19:48xnview.uci works quite well. I'm happy to be able to see animated gifs again without having to load a specialized application =o)
One issue I've seen with it, though it seems like it might be a bug within the program rather than a problem with the uci package...
The program crashes when you choose Options -> View -> File list
Posted by WDef on Oct. 27 2006,12:33xnview.uci - yeah the conversion features are interesting too, though I still use Imagemagick.uci to (eg) resize jpegs into icons. File list crash: I've been irritated by the same thing. It doesn't do it on BigFatDistro (Fedora with KDE). I've avoided that file list thing for now. Any thoughts anyone ...
Right now I'm busy building a new "mplayer" uci with the *new* mplayer release, new lame release, faad2, faac, libtheora etc mjpegtools, firewire support, probably DVDAuthor, possibly gpac for MP4 etc etc -- "jam packed with extra features" as they say on TV. New releases don't always make much difference in some areas, but that's not true of media encoders. MPlayer claim to have at last fixed the x264 support in mencoder with this new release so support for that will be included (and now that I've worked out how to compile it on dsl) => x264 = very high quality encodes at low bitrates => small movie files.
It will however be a massive download - at least twice the current size with all the extra libs etc - for which I make no apology, since half the progs are dependent on the other half so it beats loading 3 or 4 different ucis duplicating libs, and there won't be much dsl won't be able to do media-wise, hardware permitting.
Anyway I'm slacking off here, better get back to it. It's only half finished and the going is headache-inducing, so don't anyone hold their breath :=)
Posted by WDef on Oct. 29 2006,13:28xnview.uci crash - we're not alone they're having this problem on Suse as well.
I'm running strace and it says it's a segfault. Investigating further.

I've posted this over at the xnview forum. Hopefully the xnview developer might take notice.

Posted by WDef on Nov. 02 2006,11:50Some news - the Xnview developer says he's < looking into > into our problem.
Posted by JB4x4 on Nov. 02 2006,13:14I have managed to compile Firefox 2.0 with the GTK1 toolkit. It runs in DSL without any additional extensions. I still need to do some clean-up work and package it, but was just curious if there was interest in this before I put too much time into it.

so cool =o)
Posted by meo on Nov. 02 2006,13:46Wow!
I thought that firefox 2.0 needed gtk2 so that's why I posted my request for it in that section. But if it can be compiled with gtk1 that might be even better. I'd love to try it out. Really nice work!
Have fun everyhopa (swenglish),
