Thanks. The mx-flash package for mx14 is version 15.6.1. This one fails to open. Does the 16.7 version still work, and if so, can it be installed in mx14?

Re: MX Flash

When I tried to re-install mx-flashmanager, I discovered that the package was removed from the repository. Was it removed permanently or will it be available at a later time?

Some devede weirdness

I had an unusual experience with devede. I started out by using avconv to clip off the first several minutes from an .mp4 file using avconv. Both the video and audio remaining part of the .mp4 played fine in VLC. Next I used devede to create an .iso file in NTSC format that could be played in an ord...

Re: PDF to JPG

If you want to keep it really simple, use the "convert" command in a terminal: convert input.pdf output.jpg The "convert" command comes with the ImageMagick package. It's really flexible and it handles many kinds of file formats. There are also many options if you want to get fan...

Re: Virtual Box 5.1 is out

Question:

Is it possible to install VB 5.1x in parallel with VB 5.0x as a test install without messing up VB 5.0x? Or does installing VB 5.1x remove VB 5.0x? Or mebbe just wait for the backported version to show up in the CR?

Re: Virtual Box 5.1 is out

If additional packages are required to run VB 5.1 with Wheezy, shouldn't Synaptic either install them or hold back VM 5.1 from being installed? Is there some way a bug report can be sent in to the developers?

Technology run amok?

I saw an interesting news article about a recent Apple patent that disables smart phone cameras when a certain infrared signal is detected. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2016/06/29/apple-patents-technology-for-deactivating-iphone-cameras-at-live/ Ostensibly, the purpose is to prevent people ...

Rebooting Virtual Machine

I'm currently have a Win7 virtual machine installed in VirtualBox Version 5.0.24 with the latest VirtualBox extensions installed (although this particular problem goes back to earlier versions as well). The problem involves rebooting Win7 after installing a software upgrade, or applying the Start --...

Re: The Weather

The weather here in Pennsylvania has been kind of goofy this year. We had a Winter with mild temperatures and a record snowfall, followed by an early "Spring" in March, then a drop in temperatures in April-May. June has been very hot and dry, although today we have a welcome break from hot...

Inconsistency from SMTube

When playing certain YouTube videos on SMTube, they will stream perfectly when SMPlayer is selected from the list of choices on the playback menu, but neither VLC, nor UGet, nor others will handle them. However, this only happens with certain videos. Most videos will play on VLC, UGet, and all other...
