Re: Terminal Emulator Choices

I really like Sakura and its options for customizations (especially sets of colours).

And its lightweight as well.

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

It's built and it works to open those new book formats, but I haven't tested the TTS yet. I put a link to the deb in the Foliate thread if you want it early. It works fine as always, thank you! ;) Foliate opens mobi. Espeak works, but I would like to find a way to use/install Ivona Text to Speech w...

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

Fixed Foliate 1.4.0 builds in standard package build environments: https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:stevenpusser:Foliate/foliate so now am trying the new 1.5.0 release. Good to hear it! ;) As they say here: https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2019/07/foliate-ebook-reader-mobi-awz-kindle-files c...

Re: Bad idea to switch?

I don't believe you can run modern linux with xfce in a practical sense with less than 4gB, and that's not really enough to do much, 8 gB is better, but if you have a super light window manager, not a desktop, and are aware of the ram issues, and realize you basically cannot run things like gimp, f...

Re: MX 17/18 Repository: The Foliate Epub Reader Thread

Does anyone know if notes or any other added customizations made while reading an epub in Foliate get saved to the epub file itself, so that if we later read it in Calibre the annotations are still there? Or does it possibly save customizations to an extra file per epub that wouldn't be readable in...

Re: MX 17/18 Repository: The Foliate Epub Reader Thread

Great news (and really, really great job, Stevo!), I've installed foliate from MX Test Repo (I copied .deb file from my MX Linux system) on my Raspberry Pi 1 with Raspbian Buster. It works! Brilliant, I love this software ;) https://imgur.com/ciP7qoVl.png https://imgur.com/UUYfDN4l.png https://imgur...

Stevo: "We now have the latest 1.4.0 release of the Foliate ebook reader in our test repository"
So is this package for MX 19 or MX 18.3? Is there a difference?

Re: MX 17/18 Repository: The Foliate Epub Reader Thread

I guess Foliate is actually a Javascript application, which is interesting, and makes it installable on all architectures that have the necessary dependencies. So you could install the MX 19 package on a Pi running on a Buster base, for example. Is this package available? :) Actually I have working...
