PackagesAnyFeature RequestVery LowLow[vobsub2srt] please add packageUnconfirmed
0%
Task Description

here is the description from the website

https://github.com/ruediger/VobSub2SRT

VobSub2SRT is a simple command line program to convert .idx / .sub subtitles into .srt text subtitles by using OCR. It is based on code from the MPlayer project - a really really great movie player. Some minor parts are copied from ffmpeg/avutil headers. Tesseract is used as OCR software.

vobsub2srt is released under the GPL3+ license. The MPlayer code included is GPL2+ licensed.

The quality of the OCR depends on the text in the subtitles. Currently the code does not use any preprocessing. But I’m currently looking into adding filters and scaling options to improve the OCR. You can correct mistakes in the .srt files with a text editor or a special subtitle editor.

Attached is a working PKGBUILD for the latest stable version.

PackagesAnyFeature RequestVery LowMediumRemove dependency of packages on pulseaudio/libpulseAssigned
0%
Task Description

Similar to systemd, pulseaudio or libpulse is forced upon users as many packages require it such as kodi, gnome-shell (and thus also gdm), ffmpeg, gst-plugins-good, simplescreenrecorder, clementine, empathy, seamonkey (iceape), fluidsynth, mumble and qemu, Most/all of these packages can probably be compiled with pulseaudio or libpulse as an optional dependency instead.

Task Description

slim-themes seems to be considered free according to Parabola - they have an issue with arch branding (slim-themes::::[branding][FIXME:package] has “archlinux” theme) which they resolve be creating the package parabola-themes-slim. Perhaps this can be the basis for hyperbola branded themes.

PackagesAnyFeature RequestVery LowMediumAdd Trinity DesktopUnconfirmed
0%
Task Description

I would like this, because, it looks even better than xfce4. It does use an older qt3 though, BUT, they are maintaining QT3 and improving it themselves.

Plus, its more lightweight than xfce4 and maybe even lxqt too without looking like crap like lxqt and yet still is better than a WM.

I know you don’t like stuff that is abandonware in any sense, but given its being maintained, I hope you will add it.

But let me know.

Description: Newsboat is an ncursers RSS/Atom feedreader. RSS and Atom are a number of widely-used XML formats to transmit, publish and syndicate articles, for example news or blog articles. Newsboat is designed to be used on text terminals on Unix or Unix-like systems such as GNU/Linux, FreeBSD or macOS.

Newsboat is a fork of Newsbeuter. The only difference is that Newsboat is actively maintained while Newsbeuter isn’t.

https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/newsboat/

Hi guys, I have ever run into a Brother brand printer model DCPT500W[0], and I have seen that the source code for the drivers under GPLv3 license is available.

I also see that there is a file brother_dcpt500w_printer_en.ppd, which is important for cups, which is why it may be necessary to integrate it into the cups, as long as the drivers are Libre.

I am fine if authors have in documentation something explaining how they started software project. But I am not fine in descriptions which are public and accessible on Internet to have such references to illegitimate proprietary software.

Just to clarify, the word “alternative” is just fine in this description and need not be removed.

To refer to published works as “assets”, or “digital assets”, is even worse than calling them “content” — it presumes they have no value to society except commercial value.

The expression “BSD-style license” leads to confusion because it lumps together licenses that have important differences. For instance, the original BSD license with the advertising clause is incompatible with the GNU General Public License, but the revised BSD license is compatible with the GPL.

To avoid confusion, it is best to name the specific license in question and avoid the vague term “BSD-style.”
