PostX 0.3. repository is Online with upgrades

PostX Gnu/Linux 0.3. series repository is Online now.

Note. During apt-get update you will get error saying something like:

Cannot fetch http://techtimejourney.net/postx-current/dists/audax/main/i18n/Translation-en; remote end closed connection.

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead. The error is because there is no translation files on my repository and thus apt-get complains. The error is non-fatal and repository should work normally – so no worries.

PostX development update

Here is a short update about PostX 0.3 development.

* Slim display manager is coming back with a new theme.

*Miimo compression tool will get fixed. While the fixes have already been done I will do someĀ  testing before I release the fix.

* Currently I am writing a new file manager. I decided to name this project as Crosslinker FM. The file manager is written in Python and will hopefully be done in about 1,5 months or a lot sooner. I am also considering about writing a GUI version of Miimo compression tool, which I would include and later integrate to Crosslinker FM. Continue reading “PostX development update”
