How to install Foresight 3

We have written down how you can install Foresight 3 and get cinnamon or openbox as desktop. (more desktop env will come)

Read all about it here:

About the issue: exceptions.ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

That error is probably gone, but has the information there, just in case.

We know that conary updateall or conary update *** doesn’t work for the moment, because the groups are out of sync. But will be fixed later.

Leave a comment if you wonder anything.

Kupfer – Alternative for gnome-do

A simple, flexible, application launcher for Gnome. Kupfer is a summoner/launcher in the style of Quıcĸsılⅴεʀ; you do not use it to search your files, you use it to summon the object you are thinking about.

Kupfer can right now summon Applications, Recent Files and Places, your chosen folders and their contents, Bookmarks, Windows and Gnu Screen sessions.

The ‘kupfer’ command launches kupfer, or spawns it if it is already running.


Just push enter, if you want to launch the application you see.

Remember, its very fresh application. So it may not work as you expect, but it’s worth a try.

To install it, open Terminal and write:

sudo conary update kupfer=@fl:2-devel

Maybe, just maybe, you need to install a dependency. But I’m a bit unsure about it.



DVD authoring application with also Theora slideshow creation capabilities.

It’s still in heavy development, but you can still find it usefull. So install it from terminal:

sudo conary update mistelix –install-label




Pydance is fun dancing game for experience asian dance beat! Showing friends your hot move with big score!

Highly configurable, colorful animated arrow motion, limitless numbers of dance steps, 1 or 2 players, professionally written music, laughter provoking sound effects, and yes, even graphical transitions.


It depends on pydance-music, so the installation from terminal will be slightly different. Open Terminal and write:

sudo conary update {pydance,pydance-music}=@fl:2-devel




Gecko Media Player is a browser plugin that uses GNOME MPlayer to play media in a browser. It should work with all browsers on Unix-ish systems(Linux, BSD, Solaris) and use the NS4 API (Mozilla, Firefox, Opera, etc.).

To test it out, open Terminal and write:

sudo conary update gecko-mediaplayer=@fl:2-devel

Maybe you need to uninstall current browser plugin for your browser, or change in settings in your browser to use Gecko Media Player.

All comments about how/if it works are welcome.


Keepassx – secure personal data management

KeePassX is an application for people with extremly high demands on secure personal data management.

KeePassX saves many different information e.g. user names, passwords, urls, attachments and comments in one single database. For a better management user-defined titles and icons can be specified for each single entry. Furthermore the entries are sorted in groups, which are customizable as well. The integrated search function allows to search in a single group or the complete database.
KeePassX offers a little utility for secure password generation. The password generator is very customizable, fast and easy to use. Especially someone who generates passwords frequently will appreciate this feature.

It may come in handy for some users. To try it out, open Terminal and write:

sudo conary keepassx=@fl:2-devel

As soon we know it’s stable enough in Foresight, we will push it to all repositories.
