General Support / apt report grave bugs of apt(solved)
November 29, 2013, 10:26:57 AM
Have been a naughty boy for a couple of days and neglected my VSIDO install. So when going for a dist-upgrade today I got this:

grave bugs of apt ( → 0.9.13) <Outstanding>
#730490 - apt: invoking dpkg no longer respects APT::Keep-Fds

Googled the bug report but did not really get it. Anyone that knows if it is something important?

PS Got also this grave bugs of cups-browsed (1.0.34-3+b1 → 1.0.41-1) <Resolved in some Version>
#730720 - cups-browsed: severe memory leak in 1.0.41-1 (Fixed: cups-filters/1.0.41-2)
serious bugs of cups-filters (1.0.34-3+b1 → 1.0.41-1) <Resolved in some Version>
#730709 - cups-filters: fails to upgrade from 'wheezy' - trying to overwrite /usr/share/cups/ppdc/pcl.h (Fixed: cups-filters/1.0.41-2)

Need to get 63.6 MB of archives.
After this operation, 102 MB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]

Why remove spacefm? And all those new packages, why? Is there an upgrade warning thread here that I by any chance have overseen/forgotten? Normally I do not worry that much about d-ugd, but it looks weird to me. I have not said "Y" yet,
wanted to check with you guys first.
Feedback & Suggestions / Velociraptor blazeback

Great work VastOne, love it, just want to mention a couple of things. I had to install Obmenu, and crosschecked against the package list in "New Direction...", it is not there. Installed Spotify, but had to pull libnss3-1d from experimental to get it working. This new improved Vsido is very to my liking, a good choice of default applications, which is a matter of taste and very easy to change. If/when I find some more mentionable stuff, I`ll be back. Thanks again, regards blaze  :)   

Edit; this regards the iso of 150913, I saw you had yet another one today.
General Support / Failed to mount "Audio Disc"
September 02, 2013, 12:33:27 PM
"Location is not mountable". That was the message I got when trying to open the cd with the file manager. Tried to play the cd with UMPlayer, nothing happened when clicking on the "Audio cd" choice in the menu. Do I need to install a package, or is it something policykit related that needs changing?
Feedback & Suggestions / Vsido blazeback...

Here is some of the promised feedback/praise of Vsido, praise yes! fantastic work VastOne, you can be proud of what you have achieved:)
I am an Openbox fan so Vsido fits me very well, and since #! is my favorite it is very easy to feel at home here. Earlier I mentioned that
I had to "unslick" it, I regret that choice of word, as Sector 11 (think it was him) pointed out that it is more a question of making it a little
less shiny. The cause for saying it is probably because of having the simple, effective austerity of the #! desktop so close at heart, and
then when the very bright colors hit me when I tested it the first time, I just got a little color shock, thats all. This is after all just a matter
of personal taste, so do not worry about Vsido being too slick. I have found a pleasant compromise in using the NewSlickness-brushed and
S11-SR-71-black themes against a reddish/pinkish/purplish space background. Have made the fonts smaller, but have kept the original styles of them, so far...
A very good choice of applications in the default setup if I may say so, have only added "Catfish", "Gufw", "Spotify" and "dmenu" of course,
a great tool imo. I have some on my waiting list, but first I want to try out some of the default ones instead of just adding stuff that I am used too.
"UMPlayer" will probably fit me very well, since I am an old school music listener that like to listen through an entire album (preferably a concept one;)
so am used to pick one from the music folder and therefore have no or very little use of making playlists. + with Spotify I have an ok player with an
unmatchable music library to select from."SpaceFM" will be a very interesting acquaintance, have heard a lot of positive things about it, "Thunar" is great though.
I like "Medit" a lot so no need to change that one, am writing this with it. Everything works very well so far, there are a couple of quirks though, but
I will get back to it later, want to confirm that there are things that are weird/buggy/quirky or whatever you want to call it, first.
For the future then... well all I can say is that it is up to you VastOne! Make Vsido as you want it, it is after all your child, the rest
is choice and an apt-get away, no worry. Have fun making it, that way the result will continue to be as good as it is today. Not that you
should stop listening to others opinions, but do not do stuff you dislike. Keep it real, simple as that. If/when I remember something that
is worth sharing, or asking about, "I`ll be back..." until then, have a blazingly good time everybody!   
When i maximize the application windows, the upper right corner disappears and shows the desktop background, the mini/maxi/x icons are not there anymore, ideas anyone?
