Reddit: Help: Pan-and-Zoom Slideshow?

Sunday 25th of December 2016 08:24:04 PM

Hi, I am looking to migrate a friend away from the claws of microsoft. He uses the windows photo gallery, which has an objectively nice slideshow feature:

Displayed images slightly zoom in and pan around.

Is there a picture management software or picture viewer that has this feature? The closest I got was glslideshow (from xScreensaver), but that only displays random images from an unsettable location.

Reddit: [Help] I want longer battery life on my linux laptop this Christmas... and I don't know how to do that..

Sunday 25th of December 2016 06:26:01 PM

I already have TLP and Powertop installed, and the systemd services are optimized so that they work side by side no issues or compromises, however I still get better battery life on my 128 GB Windows 8.1 install (2 TB drive) which is a huge bummer. Any tips on how I can get better battery life on Linux? I'm not afraid of heavy tweaking (i.e sysctl tweaks, patches and even optimizing cpu frequency)

The official announcement is on our website at—but since I announced the FreeDOS 1.2 RC1 and RC2 here, I figured I'd make a brief mention on this blog too.

Thanks to everyone in the FreeDOS Project for their work towards this new release! There are too many of you to recognize individually, but you have all helped enormously. Thank you!

If you've been waiting to upgrade your Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system to the 16.04.2 point release, which should have hit the streets a couple of days ago, you'll have to wait until February 2.
