Some time ago, I noticed Foxit Reader was also available for Linux, but… since they don’t offer a .deb, I decided to make my own, and also made a portable version (in RUNZ format).
-The license seems a bit restrictive
-little ads on the interface (see image above)
-Slower than the default Ubuntu viewer (evince)
-Nothing special I could find, but it is always good to have more software available for Linux
Download Portable Foxit Reader for Linux/Ubuntu
Download .deb file of Foxit Reader for Ubuntu
By the way, this is already in the Super OS repository, the package name is “foxit-reader” (no quotes)
Finally what seems to be the official Windows 7 RTM ISO-DVD is on the internet.
I haven’t installed it yet, but it seems to be the real thing…
Sooner or later my PC will dual-boot Windows 7 and Super OS (now I have Windows Vista + Super OS 9.04)
There were also reports about the official hashes of the ISOs, something useful to make sure the ISOs were not contaminated with malware.
Download links and hashes information at:
Update: This is the “ultimate edition” and you can install without serial/key. After 30 days it asks you to register, but it **seems** to keep working anyway
Another SuperDeb out!
OpenOffice.org 3.1 SuperDeb for Ubuntu 9.04 and Super OS 9.04
Note: Only for systems in English AND with OpenOffice.org also in English
OK people, my previous VLC SuperDeb for Ubuntu 9.04 and Super OS did not worked on some systems, so I spent the last few days trying to make a proper installer, and now I finally made it!
Changes from the old version:
-FIXED: If an older version of VLC was instaled, the new version would fail to open
-FIXED: On Ubuntu systems with some QT packages, the installer would ask to remove that QT packages
-NEW: The installer now includes an option to install libdvdcss (required to play most commercial DVDs)
-NEW: Simplified interface (to make it easier to install the program)
If you had installed the old SuperDeb, you can simply install this new one “on top” of that.
The reasons why the previous installer had some issues are explained in the other post.
As usual, please report any issues you find.
VLC 1.0.0 out! time to upgrade!
To make upgrade easy for Ubuntu and Super OS users, just made a “SuperDeb“. It is like a normal deb, but it includes all the dependencies already in one package + the option to install the official VLC repository (for easier future updates)
Grab it here: http://hacktolive.org/wiki/SuperDebs
Note: You need to RUNZ Framework to run this
This installer had some issues on some systems, this was because:
-Is was necessary to upgrade/update the system before (or after) installing the new VLC
-The SuperDeb was missing some .deb packages, required for SOME systems
All this issues are now fixed and the links were already updated. Sorry for this, but this package was very complex. The new installer also has new features, read more about it in the next post.
Finally the first Service Pack for Super OS is out! (I hope others will follow)
This is mainly a collection of updates, and brings nothing new besides bugfixes, this is particularly useful for users without internet.
Users with internet connection and with the system up-to date should already have most software in this service pack.
This Service Pack can be used to:
- be installed on Ubuntu 9.04, to upgrade to Super OS 9.04
- be installed on Super OS 9.04, to update your software
The download link is in the page of the Service Pack and the install should be pretty easy (all graphical).
As usual, please report any issues/suggestions
Just packed a portable version of Firefox 3.5 in RUNZ format
This mean you can test and use the new Firefox without having to wait for it to get into the repositories!
This has support for the RUNZ Sandbox (to make the settings portable, so you can use the this app on USB flash drives, etc…)
Tested on: Ubuntu 9.04 and Super OS 9.04
Grab it on the page of my Linux portables
