Thanks ilu for
Actually I have it in bookmarks which I used to check debian package versions while using Kubuntu, but it didn't click in my mind that it can also be used to see package description.
Synaptic and muon show detail description in Netrunner 19.01 and Neptune 6 respectivelly.
e.g. Description of package 'fonts-noto-cjk' shown there, which reveals a lot, is
Code: Select all
Noto is a collection of font families, each visually harmonized across scripts.
This package contains Noto font families for Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Japanese and Korean:
• Noto Sans CJK JP
• Noto Sans CJK KR
• Noto Sans CJK SC
• Noto Sans CJK TC
• Noto Sans Mono CJK JP
• Noto Sans Mono CJK KR
• Noto Sans Mono CJK SC
• Noto Sans Mono CJK TC
• Noto Serif CJK JP
• Noto Serif CJK KR
• Noto Serif CJK SC
• Noto Serif CJK TC
These fonts are derived from the font family Source Han Sans.
The name "Noto" is short for "No Tofu", describing the aim of covering all living Unicode scripts.
Tofu (豆腐) is Japanese jargon for unicode replacement character "�" (U+FFFD) often displayed as replacement for unassigned or unknown characters.
This package contains regular and bold fonts.
Whereas in SolydK 10 only description heading '"No Tofu" font families with large Unicode coverage (CJK regular and bold)' is repeated below the heading. Probably this may have be done to trim SolydK 10 and make it fast.
And why would you disable the debian repos? You need them for updating.
No no, I never ment that. I generally don't tamper with default repos. What I ment was whether I can add debian repos below default ones and enable them temporarily just for seeing the description. But your solution is much simpler!, though having description available by default in synaptic is much user frendly.
Will having detail description in synaptic be much against SolydXK's direction, i.e. the way SolydXK is planned? I can understand developers' intention and respect it, but simultaneously I also feel that SolydXK must be beginner frendly and can be recommended without hesitation.
