    After refactored drm-kmod + gpu-firmware-kmod, cursor is now invisible!

    Hello, I've already posted here about this problem, but I thought I'd make another post in a different category since I don't think it's a problem with peripherals; rather, it is a problem with the refactored drm-kmod-and-friends ports. I hope that's allright! ☺️ I am on a laptop, specifically...

    libXCB (X C Binding library)

    XCB (X-protocol C-language binding) was intended to fully replace Xlib for X11: so far, XCB has gradually replaced some parts of it. Its purpose was to be more efficient and to be easier to program. X11 is a protocol. Xlib and XCB are both API's and library sets. Xlib (also called libX11) is...

    Port category

    I'm almost done porting NsCDE (https://github.com/NsCDE/NsCDE). I'm unsure what category to put it under, however? It's a "modern" re-implementation of CDE, which is under x11. However, NsCDE really just is a bunch of scripts based on fvwm2. I originally thought about placing it under x11-wm...
