I almost added Openbox to this list since I hadn't noticed any commits since December 2013, but I decided to check their github page for the first time in a while and noticed a new one in November of 2014.

The last release of Openbox was over a year ago? Wow. It seems like just yesterday that I got so mad at the developers for making the "Smart Placement" incredibly stupid. hmm

I remember that outcry in the OB community. smile  I've always used Openbox on laptops and netbooks, so with the smaller screen sizes it never really bothered me. I almost always go for Xfce or Mate on a desktop.

Re: Favorite dead open source project?

Still trying to bring this back to life; it makes me very sad that there isn't a working, modern music visualizer available for linux since this died.


EDIT: Had some success with the 0.6.0 (current development) branch. PKGBUILD in AUR needs to be replaced, git master isn't dev tip; git origin/branch; etc. It only built and ran with debugging enabled, and was mosty broken (no OSD).

Amaya.

I forked it on github and applied some patches to make it build, but it currently builds only using clang. I am not a C programmer and so I cannot do real polishing to the big codebase.

Re: Favorite dead open source project?

Nicotine+ / museek+ / newsoul
Soulseek P2P clients

None of these have seen development in a long time.

newsoul, a fork of museek+, is the youngest but doesn't build from the AUR.
Nicotine+ still works but is getting dated and has a bug where it cannot connect to many people using the official client, SoulseekQt.
SoulseekQt sucks in a few ways and is closed-source...

Awww, you reminded me of when I composed using seq24. So simple and just worked. I miss it. sad

...I also miss being able to write good music, but to be able to do that I would have had to have actually WRITTEN some good music. big_smile

i've tried seq24 for a while, until i found awesome non-sequencer — the best live oriented sequencer ever.
but for composing, my favorite is still harmonyseq.

We're in denial.  It will come back.

Personally I've moved on to acceptance - especially as qutebrowser has found it's way into [community] and now has (nearly) everything I liked about dwb (and almost nothing else).

http://www.qutebrowser.org/INSTALL.html still says you can only get it from AUR. You did inform upstream that this is incorrect, right?

Used pypanel years ago but at that time (early 2000's?) it crashed frequently. Loved the functionality though.

Re: Favorite dead open source project?

Just uploaded a new package for crowd-greeter.

I suppose it was only made as a proof-of-concept, but I find it unfortunate that practially no follow up development has occured.

I've been trying to replace the avatar with anything I can find, but so far only the two provided will work and I don't understand why.

EDIT: By the way, my package patches in the alternative "Revenant" avatar, just because.

On torrent sites you can only find mostly mainstream stuff, soulseek if for rare stuff
