    XCB (X C Binding)

    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...

    Solved This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in ""

    The recent update of the qt5* ports puzzled some things, could not update cause of net/qt5-networking is broken with security/libressl. I reverted the partial update. After this I got the error. Problem with multimedia/vlc and graphics/xpdf (maybe, with some more). How to fix?

    Issue with Nvidia settings

    So I've recently installed FreeBSD. I'm currently running kernel 10.2-RELEASE-p9 with userland 10.2-RELEASE-p13. This is the amd64 version. Anyway, I've recently installed the Nvidia drivers from Nvidia's website due to the ones available from pkg being pretty outdated. The driver works fine...

    Lecture: X Security - It's worse than it looks

    Having seen this presentation at 30C3 a/o 2014/12/29 I made my mind not touching xorg anymore until the situation has gotten better. This was expected to be midyear 2014. Although I could not find any information about the state of cleaning up the xorg server mess. Does someone have more...

    How I fixed libxcb-aux.so.0 missing problem

    Dumb and boring package management? Dirty trick!

Nautilus and other packages requiring it works just fine. Now, when I...
