      How about gprename?

      Nice alternative for aa GUI to batch/bulk rename files. It would be nice having it in Package Installer, so more people can use it in antiX.

      Problems:
      – still, for me, not as intuitive as krename
      – not localized (at least not in pt) – that can stop it being used by non English speaking users
      – takes about 50% more space, once installed, than krename (even so, only some 5Mb)

      I’ll keep an eye out for other gui alternatives

      P.

        PPC, “krename” at least in antiX 21 and 22 translates to “pt_BR” with all texts in “pt”. Did they put the “.mo” file of the “pt” language in the “pt_BR” folder in the “.deb” package?

        PPC, o “krename” ao menos no antiX 21 e 22 possui tradução para “pt_BR” com os textos todos em “pt”. Será que colocaram no pacote “.deb” o arquivo “.mo” do idioma “pt” na pasta “pt_BR”?

          Trying out PPC’s edit_antix_startup_file had me running app-select from the command line enough that I finally searched for a solution to the dbind error that appears t launch and had been bugging me for a while.

          dbind-WARNING **: 18:11:18.217: AT-SPI: Error retrieving accessibility bus address: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.a11y.Bus was not provided by any .service files

          It turns out that this has been mentioned here on the forum at least twice, in posts 27903 and 35291. In both cases, the solution was to sudo apt install at-spi2-core. I tested with the antiX-23-beta1-runit-full (64-bit) and confirmed this worked.

          There is already a nosystemd version of this package in the repositories. Would it be possible it get it added to the default install? Failing that, another potential solution I found on the web (but failed to test before installing at-spi2-core) is to set the environment variable NO_AT_BRIDGE=1 by adding it to .bashrc or similar — this solution, if it works, takes almost no space:

          export NO_AT_BRIDGE=1

            export NO_AT_BRIDGE=1

            I confirmed this also prevents the dbus error.

              At runit, how to boot into an equivalent to init3 (safe mode) at sysvinit?

                From http://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Runit
                I found the following sentences:
                2.2 Run levels and service directories

                Runit uses directories of symlinks to specify runlevels, other than the 3 main ones, which are defined in /etc/runit/1, 2, and 3.

                1 bootstraps the system, 2 starts runsvdir on /service, and 3 stops the system.

                While in run level 2, you are not constrained to any amount of service levels (equivalent to runlevels in sysvinit). You can runschdir to any directory (full of service directory symlinks) you have made in /etc/runit/runsvdir/. This becomes very handy in cases where you have an HA (Failover) setup, and you have one machine that can take over services for many other machines, simply by runsvchdir .

                  “Runit can be used either as a drop-in replacement[6] for sysvinit, or as a service supervisor (with sysvinit as the parent PID 1 process which runs processes specified by the inittab file, or some other init system).”

                    I’m having problems with my Wifi connection dropping on one of my Dell laptops. It has never had trouble until I updated the beta. It runs for a while, then loses the connection and can’t rescan. Its installed to the SSD hard drive. Here is the inxi readout. It’s got an Intel wifi adapter in it. Any ideas?

                    PS: It seems many times it fails following a suspend/resume cycle. I get dbus errors it seems after it fails if I try to turn the wifi adapter off and on again to reset it. At that point a suspend and resume won’t fix it. After a reboot it works fine again. It happened 6 or 7 times yesterday.

                      At runit, how to boot into an equivalent to init3 (safe mode) at sysvinit?

                      Type single in the boot menu
                      When running live remove the splasht cheat

                        @anticapitalista. I may have a fix for the zzzfm’s “detailed” and “compact” icons- using 3 special keys at once ( Ctrl+ Super + Alt) and 5 and 6. I guess no sane person uses 4 special keys at the same time, so that key combo should be safe in all window managers, right? If you want I can use “d” and “c” instead of numbers. I can send detailed instructions on how you can change zzzfm’s session file yourself or try to do it myself and upload a commit to http://gitlab.com/antiX-Linux/desktop-defaults-zzzfm-antix/-/raw/main/skel/.config/zzzfm/session That’s the correct gitlab, I assume…

                        Edit: can I also try adding direct launch support for java applications and for .appimages (making it unnecessary to make them executable at first run manually). Is there any other file type that needs “fixing” in zzzfm? If the wallpaper selection script accepts direct input from the terminal, I can add a fully working “Use as Wallpaper” entry for the supported file types… I tried adding a “send to external drive” contextual entry, but I found no easy way to do that… A “Send to home” contexual entry can be made available, when not in the home folder (an easy way to send files from a thumbdrive to the home folder). A send to zzz desktop is already created on my personal config (that I tested, because, I don’t regulary use desktop icons)

                        I’m also thinking of a way to make sure that the user does not run out of space, when using the trash…

                        P.

                            There seem to be some extra packages built into the ISO. When running the antiX Updater from the antiX Control Centre, I see:

                            ...
                            Calculating upgrade...
                            The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
                              bind9-host bind9-libs libfstrm0 libjemalloc2 liblmdb0 libmaxminddb0 libprotobuf-c1 lubuv1
                            Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove them.
                            ...

                              To be honest I see packages for auto removal almost every week and the reasons vary. 1. When you run test software, package dependencies change because packagers experiment and change. 2. Development is known to change infrastructure occasionally too, particularly when meta packages are used.

                              So to auto remove packages is normal and Debian clearly has a specific mechanism for that purpose.

                                I agree that they can be auto removed, however, with space being at a premium for some of the ISOs, it seemed like it would be good to mention it so at the point in time where the ISOs are frozen they can be removed. It might make a difference in something else making it into the base ISO for instance.

                                  @anticapitalista – I sent a merge request to zzzfm’s session git, that fixes the problem with the “compact” and “detailed” buttons.
                                  I’m currently, in my spare time, trying to change some of current zzzfm’s defaults, add more options:
                                  – Single click can be very useful to run apps, but makes life very difficult when selecting several files, so, I’ll set single click back to off
                                  – I really wanted to create a “send to” contextual menu entry… Instead of creating a large contextual sub-menu with lots of places (like /home, /documents, etc…) and still have to jump trough loops to display usb devices, I worked smarter, not harder, I just came up with a single contextual menu entry, called “Send to” (or rather it should be called “Copy to”, since it does not send the selected files no where, but does copy them to the selected place), that displays a zzzfm GUI similar to the one used to display “Recent Files”, where the user can select the folder were the files should be copied to and click the “Ok” button on the lower right corner of the window. I hope that makes even easier to copy files to/from external devices, without having to jump around multiple tabs… Why did I came up with this feature? The “send to (usb device)” is the single Feature from the old Windows File Manager that I miss. This is similar, with even more options, but requires the extra click on the “ok” button.
                                  – I’ll have to remember to add .appimage associations, to automate making them executable, making appimages a bit easier to use.
                                  – I’ll also try to add .jar associations to zzzfm, out of the box
                                  – I really think that antiX 23 should include the tiny script that acts as a GUI to mount samba shared folders, and be present in ZZZfm’s default bookmarks, but I won’t, of course, push that feature (just because I have “Mount network folders” and “Mount cloud drives” on my zzzfm bookmarks, and I think that those 2 features are almost expected in modern file manager- yes cloud drives are a privacy plague, but almost ubiquitous, and some people have most of their files stored on the cloud).
                                  – Fix the “Use image as wallpaper for that session” context menu entry, to use better defaults (feh –bg-max -Z %f)

                                  Note 1: anyone can add the “send to feature” to zzzfm:
                                  On zzzfm’s window, on an empty space on the file/folder pane, click the right mouse button (to access the contexual menu) > Right click again on any menu entry that is not a sub-menu (i.e does not have an arrow on the right corner) and select “+ New” > On the “Name” Tab enter the name of the new entry (ex: Copy to…) > On the “Command” Tab, enter this (I hope the forum software does not mangle the code), and then click the “Ok” button, on the lower right corner:

                                  
                                  eval "'zzzfm -g --title Copy_to...  --window-size 600x650 --chooser --dir --button OK'" && place="$dialog_chooser1"
                                  if [ -d "$place" ]; then
                                    cp "%F" "$place"
                                  fi

                                  Note 2: none of my suggestions use any extra system resources, and they add extra usability to zzzfm. If you don’t want any of zzzfm features, simply don’t use them, no one is forced to use any feature, nor use zzzfm at all- rox-file will probably be included in antiX until someone pries it out of anticapitalista’s long dead, cold fingers, in (I hope) a far away future…
