Xfce4-power-manager 1.3.0

I recently updated xfce4-power-manager to release 1.3.0 on my COPR repo. Here are screenshots from the latest releas, which has had a significant makeover. :)

  1. does it mean we can remove xscreensaver finally?

    1. Good question! I do not know yet ... Did not think about it before.

  2. I just tried on Arch linux with 1.3 git package. The panel "action buttons" doesn't lock the screen either leave alone the dpms.

    I used Xubuntu for few days and I think they are trying to integrate light-locker into the xfce system settings for screensaver. Since xubuntu is maintained by xfce upstream what ever lands on xubuntu is a rough picture of what xfce team might want. I guess you might be interested in packaging for fedora, since you are interested in xfce packages.

    I like xfce but the only thing that keeps me away from using it is the screensaver with vlc is such a PIA.

gparted 0.28.1

A new version of gparted was released recently and I have updated the Fedora package to the latest version - 0.28.1.

This version brings a rather exciting (at least, to me) update - ability to copy and resize already open LUKS filesystems.

For full details, see gparted release notes of both 0.28.0 and 0.28.1

0.28.0 - release notes (0.28.0)

0.28.1 - release notes (0.28.1)

This update is, at the moment, only pushed for Fedora 25. I will test this and submit an update for EPEL-7 in the next few days.

spyder 3 for Fedora

Spyder 3 was released sometime back and the latest version 3.1.0 was released yesterday. I have working on updating Spyder to 3.x for sometime now. Towards this effort, I got the following packages reviewed and included in Fedora - 
In addition to this, the package python-ipykernel had to be reviewed. This was completed sometime towards the end of last year.
Now that all the packages are available (in different forms), I have put together a COPR repo where spyder 3.1.0 package resides. I would like to get these packages tested before I submit it as a big update to Fedora 25.
COPR repo is here - nonamedotc/spyder3 - COPR repo
Of course, this repo can be directly enabled from a terminal -
dnf copr enable nonamedotc/spyder3
To install spyder along with ipython console from this repo, do

dnf install python{2,3}-{spyder,ipython}

Note: ipython package provided by this repo is version 5.…

Beautiful themes for Fedora

Ever since Fedora 24 was released, I have been looking at new themes for use with Xfce that are not completely broken with GTK 3.20. I have tried several themes and since several of them had to be compiled (not copy/paste to ~/.themes), I have packaged those I have tried so far.
Here are the links to koji builds -
