Updated: XArchiver + Xfburn

March 29th, 2017 No comments


A few updates for Slackware 14.2 x64:

  • Xfburn, a GTK-based CD/DVD writing tool
  • Xarchiver, the GTK-based Linux equivalent of Winzip.

Xfburn requires 2 additional libraries, libburn and libisofs.
The Thunar archive plugin complements Xarchiver. It allows you to extract/create archive files straight from Thunar, the XFCE file manager. All these packages were compiled on a Slackware 14.2 x64 system.

Downloads are here:


Enjoy 😉

iNove1080 WordPress theme

December 27th, 2016 No comments


For those of you who are interested, I am releasing the WP theme that is used for this site. It’s just a slightly tweaked version of the iNove theme, which afaik is now abandoned.  

Modifications I made:

  • It’s wider, the header/footer image are now 1080 pixels wide
  • PRE css now defaults to Courier font, the text is darker, the quote img is removed
  • PRE text now automatically shows scrollbars when text is too wide (overflow = auto)
  • a few tweaks here and there to various spacings to make it fit better

Theme was tested on WP 4.6/4.7 on PHP 5.6.x and appears to work just fine.


Enjoy 🙂
