brian|lfshey Romster or jaeger I have skype working the alpha thats been out a few weeks01:57
brian|lfsnot sure if someone wants to put my port on a repo or not01:57
brian|lfsfor now I don't have dpkg as a dep in it what I did was install dpkg on my system so I could extract the contents of it and re-compress it01:58
brian|lfsbut if you all have dpkg as a dep so its easier to update then I coudl re-write it and have the port use dpkg and then just move the files to $PKG01:59
*** vlnx has joined #crux02:02
jaegerYou can use ar to extract a deb to avoid the dpkg dependency02:04
jaegerI don't use skype so have no use for a port, myself. Why not host your own repo for it on github or similar?02:05
jaegerthat way you also have autonomy to update it whenever necessary02:20

pedjawireless mouse?no, thanks.also, get off my lawn. you crazy kids.20:01
pedjaif I had one, I'll probably throw it at the mosquito by  accident, so better not to buy it.20:04
marakupedja: and what's so bad about a wireless mouse?20:07
pedjamaraku: nothing, I just don't like it.20:09
pedjai am old and conservative that way :)20:09
marakubut cables are annoying!20:10
pedjacharging the mouse when the battery runs out is annoying, too20:10
marakueh, my mouse hasn't run out yet (~1 year using one of those rechargeable AA's)20:11
jaegerCould use something with a dock so you don't have to think about it20:12
marakualthough, tbh, with a keyboard centric setup I barely use it anyhow20:12
pedjaMurphy's law says it will happen at the worst possible time :)20:12
pedjaif you have more than one machine, I get it.But for the single desktop?Nah.20:14
pedjaBourne also prefers corded mouse, he never knows if he'll have to strangle someone or something.20:17
marakupedja: a very practical application20:20
pedjapart of the special ops training: improvise :)20:24
marakupedja: so what would you do if you got stuck with a wireless mouse?20:28
pedjause it.grudgingly :)20:29
*** Na3iL has quit IRC20:43
cruxbot[opt.git/3.2]: efibootmgr: switch to -git for gcc6 and efivar-0.24 compat as version 0.12.120:58
frinnstpedja: when the battery runs low you just plug it in - making it a corded mouse!21:07
pedjaI know, I know  :)21:08
frinnstI have another wireless mouse I use from my sofa as sort of a remote control21:09
frinnst(i have about 2 meters from my sofa to my desk - too long to travel each time!)21:09
pedjafrinnst: how does that MX master work without Logitech sw?(on Linux)21:12
pedjait's using generic driver, or?21:13
pedjamy rx1000 is on its last legs, so I'll have to buy a mouse soonish21:14
frinnstits just a hid device, yeah21:15
frinnstand all buttons work so im happy21:15
pedjaI was surprised when I saw that vertical scroll just works.21:17
frinnstyeah, dont use it very often but it does work21:17
frinnstthe mouse wheel is pretty sweet. if you scroll with a lot of force it will become a flywheel21:18
frinnstso you can skip lots of lines without effort21:18
frinnstmy performance mx had a separate toggle for that so it didnt come as natural21:18
pedjamx series is a bit pricey, though.but Logitech is worth it :)21:20
frinnstyeah and it will last a long time hopefully21:20
frinnstI got a deal on mine ~40% off21:21
pedjaI have mine for ~7 years.21:21
pedjaI'll just buy keyboard+mouse bundle for 30 euros, and be done with it.21:29
pedja'latest nvidia drivers don't work with my 6 24' monitors' is a nice problem to have.22:08

teK_because I was making a joke22:57
teK_(and 27" is better than 24" ;>)22:57
pedjaI always wondered what people do with 4 or 6 monitor setup.CAD/CAM, animation?23:16
pedjathen again, I have 4 virtual desktops, with bunch of stuff on
