PostX 0.3 beta’s original release date was supposed to be today. Unfortunately, I have not been able to finalize things due to an injury, which took place during Monday. Due to this unfortunate event I have been quite off from computer during the last few days. Rest assured PostX 0.3 is soon complete. Since I have been able to pick up some slack now I am quite sure that the beta will arrive within seven days. The current target date is around 5th of August -or even sooner if everything goes really well.
As I am currently working towards making the next PostX release, which will have some extensive changes, I am pleased to announce that the first beta release will become available on Monday 31st of August. Before the given date I will try to push all the remaining things, which came with the previous PostX version, to my website for a larger public. I will also do some updates to the PostX 0.2.5 base, which will include at least:
A more recent kernel, a more recent audax-programs package and possibly some artwork tune-ups. The plan is to do a more robust kernel, which will be included to both PostX 0.2.5 and 0.3 versions. The audax-programs package will also continue be as identical as possible between the releases. Also, the plan is to continue maintaining a more active approach to kernel building once PostX 0.3. is released. I will try to find time during the next weekend to build a new kernel, which I will then push to both current and beta repositories of PostX
Here is a program I created some time ago. You will need to have zenity and feh installed in order to use it. The program also assumes that you start your system with startx or a dm like Slim, which uses .xinitrc file to startup desktop and programs alike.
Below you will see a list of screenshots, which will clarify how to use the program.
Copy the program to /usr/share and run it within a terminal using the command above. You can change the location path but then you also need to tweak some lines within the program (this is easily achieved).
