MKVToolNix 69.0.0 for Slackware x64

July 11th, 2022 No comments

 

Latest version of the MKVToolnix package for Slackware (Sbo build), build on a Slackware-current 15.0+ system. Requires Qt5.

 
For Slackware-current x64:

 
You might run into interface issues with this version: the GUI could show partially hidden interface elements, fonts, checkboxes, …
See the next link for more info (GitLab bug report): https://gitlab.com/mbunkus/mkvtoolnix/-/issues/3358

Solution is to create an ENV variable:

QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0

Put it somewhere in /etc/bashrc or the user’s .bashrc. That should fix the interface issues.
 
Enjoy 🙂

Apt-get tips and tricks

May 25th, 2021 No comments

 

Some tricks when using apt (apt-get) on a Debian system.

 

1. nslookup is missing on Debian 10

 

If you ever wanted to use nslookup on a Debian 10 server and you’re getting an “nslookup: command not found” result, then use apt-get to install the dnsutils package.

apt-get install dnsutils

 

2. ifconfig is missing on Debian 10

 

Likewise, if you ever wanted to use good’ol ifconfig on a Debian 10 server and you’re getting an “ifconfig: command not found” result, then use apt-get to install the net-tools package.

apt-get install net-tools

 

3. Search for installed packages

 

If you wanted to figure out which package version(s) of a specific software are installed, then use apt to search for the related package(s).
Example: if you want to find out what version of mariadb is installed, use this:

apt list --installed | grep mariadb 

Omitting the grep command in the previous example, will list all packages installed on your system:

apt list --installed 

 

4. Search for available packages

 

If you wanted to known which package version(s) of a specific software are available for installation, then use apt-cache to search for package(s). The apt-cache search command will return all packages that have the specified name in the package name or description
Example: if you want to find out what version of tomcat is available, use this:

apt-cache search tomcat 

 

Enjoy 🙂
