Usually things go fine. You have your Openbox, Fluxbox, PekWM or Awesome etc. window manager running and everything scales up nicely. Sometimes you end up into a situation where you are not that lucky: window frames are too small and the desktop font is just too tiny – and you cannot even read the text properly.
Luckily, the previous issues are easy to fix. Usually, the root cause of them is that you have a big display and your window manager does not know how to size things correctly by itself. Another reason might be that you have changed your wires. For example, I replaced a broken old HDMI wire with a newer one and the issues appeared.

And finally, here is some data and upgrade plans about the ” soon to be upgraded pages”
PostX Gnu/Linux startpage: upgrade completed: 20th of January. Gtmetrix results.
Program sections pages
Youtube video page
HTML5/CSS web designs page
Postx-programs package is now upgraded. Kernel will happen next week – since this time coding and tweaking took a lot more time than expected.
PostX-programs brings new versions for:
PostX-Calendar, which is now QT5.
Quick Terminal, which now has a cleaner interface. Also, some commands like copy and paste are now living within a right click menu.
Power-Manager is also now QT5 and it has some Openbox related and PostX Gnu/Linux related integration in it(lock screen=i3lock, quit desktop=openbox related etc.) Power-manager still uses only sudo. I will integrate su features in the next version.
Upgrade for PostX Gnu/Linux users (in terminal): sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

In the upcoming week I will make some updates to PostX Gnu/Linux repositories. Power-Manager will upgrade to QT5 and it will contain some Openbox integration in it. Likewise, PostX-Calendar will upgrade to QT5. I will also build new Linux kernels, headers and source packages for both i386 and amd64. All this should be done before the late Friday. The actual upgrade schedule might be a lot faster but Friday is the deadline. Continue reading “PostX Gnu/Linux status update and PostX Gnu/Linux 0.4.2 release date”
