I’ve added several packages to the repository recently. I still use maverick, the last release before Unity became the default. I intend to move to Unity with precise, but until then I’ve been backporting things to maverick.


  1. maverick: fceux 2.1.5, backported from precise
  2. maverick: get-iplayer 2.8.0, taken directly from precise
  3. lucid: logcheck 1.3.14, backported from precise to correct a problem with wildcard globs in the lucid release

XBMC 11.0 “Eden” has just been released. So far, it’s sexy. So sexy.

After the upgrade, one key on my Logitech diNovo Mini keyboard stopped working. Previously, I had configured the “Media” key in the lower right corner to switch between full screen and windowed mode, so I could access the normal Ubuntu desktop. However, this now launches the Music Library. They keymap for this key changed from <launch_media_center> in Dharma to <launch_media_select> Eden.

This file corrects it.
