BTW... this may soud a bit off-topic, but how does this kind of flaw is corrected in Snaps, Flatpaks, Appimages, etc.

I mean, I know everything is inside containers and should be more "secure", but how can you tell if your version is using that library? At least for Snapstore, the app is published by a verified account of the actual developers of VLC. On the other hand, for Flathub, it is published by Flathub Maintainers. Who is keeping track of that updates or of what else is inside a Snap or Flathub package?

Hmm  :-\
Don't know... I only use mpv anyway  :-\

What about this by Ross Finlayson in Slashdot?
https://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=12787146&cid=57515512#comments

"The bug - which has now been fixed in the LIVE555 library (with the fix already reported to Cisco) - affected only the LIVE555 library's implementation of a RTSP *server*. It doesn't affect the implementation of a RTSP *client*, which is the only part of the LIVE555 library that VLC and MPlayer use. (VLC does have an embedded RTSP server, but that uses a separate implementation, not LIVE555's.)

(I know this because I'm the author of the LIVE555 software :-)"

mpv doesn't require it either  :D That's the media player I use on all my systems  ;)

Just removed the liblivemedia from my PM7, somehow it was still there after removing vlc ages ago. It was a dependency of vlc-nox, which somehow was also left behind  :-\
All clear now, though.
mpv working as it should  :)

Thx VinDSL for the heads-up  :-*

Hi peppycrab,

Congratulations on getting the printer up and running!!
And thanks very much for posting the details about how you accomplished it!  ;)

Now that you have put this into a thread of its own, others will be able to find it more easily if they are having trouble with their wireless printers.  8)

And tout de suite you have become a contributor to the forum and not just a user!

 Regards,

Software & Applications / Re: Games crashing
« Last post by Brotherred on October 21, 2018, 09:55:25 pm »
These crashes are nearly random to anything and are now happening on this fresh install.
Pretty much the only thing that I have done is play Hulu yet. Here is the the syslog in which I searched for Firefox and copied the area in the log around that instance. I have no idea. Hopefully this is helpful in figuring out these crashes. I remember what alynur had said about fixing the sleep or hibernation. That definitely seems like the issue here with Hulu/ Firefox and the games.

General Discussion / Re: Strange Messages ??
« Last post by PCNetSpec on October 21, 2018, 08:17:52 pm »
In fact, the "strange messages" that this topic is about seem to only appear if assistive technologies is enabled...

so run:
Code: [Select]
xfce4-accessibility-settings
and on the "Assistive Technologies" tab, make sure there is NO tick in the box labelled "enable assistive technologies"
(or tick it, then untick it again)

Then reboot to test.



As an aside - On the "Mouse" tab, make sure "show location of pointer on keypress" IS ticked if you want the Alt+C (find mouse cursor) keybinding to work.
