Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

Uniformity between GTK2/3 and QT/KDE with QT using GTK themes

Whereas gtk-qt-engine doesn't work very well, that is, GTK can't be easily made to "simulate" QT/KDE themes, the converse seems to work very well, and apparently no additional package is needed for that, but QT alone, or actually just qtconfig-qt4, in order to set the QT/KDE* theme as "GTK+".

So one third of the problem of desktop uniformity is solved if you have one GTK2 (I believe it's GTK2, not 3, I'm not sure) theme that you find good enough to have both in...

Possible bug with Debian's Konqueror/Dolphin/KDE and zip extraction, and how to fix

I noticed that there was no longer the "extract" context submenu for zip files after one of the last updates. Then I went to check the ".desktop" files on /usr/share/kde4, and noticed that they had an editing mistake in the mimetype line:

Code:
MimeType= ... application/x-lzma-compressed-tar;application/zipapplication/x-deb; ...
I guess it was probably something related with deb packages, which must have edited this line and "forgot" to add the...

Ditch Deja Vu Sans Condensed, use Liberation Sans, and be happy

Posted 03-09-2013 at 06:01 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 03-09-2013 at 06:02 PM by the dsc (gruesome spelling mistake)

I used to like the condensed variant of Deja Vu, which is the default font (in the regular variation) for many linux distributions/DEs I guess. I've always disliked the regular variant, I find it too wide, while the condensed is very nice to look at. It's quite a hassle to actually use it everywhere though, either the font is buggy, or the apps that read it are buggy. I think it's the former as other fonts with two "nested subtypes/variants" work (such as liberation). The GUI settings...
