Download New Storyboarding Software That’s Free & Open Source

Quick tip: The new software package, Storyboarder, makes it “easy to visualize a story as fast you can draw stick figures.” You can create a story idea without actually making a full-blown movie and see how it looks. Storyboarder is free. It’s open source.

Using eopkg

NOTE: Do not try to use “pisi” in Solus. It has been removed. eopkg is an incompatible fork of pisi with many advanced features. Only the “eopkg” command is supported  ALSO NOTE: PLEASE do not post instructions for mutilating Solus installations with extracted (INCOMPATIBLE) DEB or RPM files.


Fork of the PiSi Package Manager, originally from Pardus Linux, and adapted/maintained during the lifetime of SolusOS, EvolveOS and Solus.  Please note that we plan to replace eopkg with sol.
