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.

[WORK-AROUND] Bug on dragging windows of KDE/QT apps under openbox

If you accidentally (or not) click/hold and drag the left mouse button from the inner area ("client" or "any empty area") in a KDE/QT window, it starts to be dragged/moved along, but it's not dropped when you release the button, unlike the behavior with GTK windows (at least GTK2, I guess). You got to press "enter" or "esc", I guess.

Presumably that doesn't happen under KDE proper/kwin, maybe not even with other window managers, but I didn't...

Opera Presto had the best GUI ever. Ever.

Posted 02-21-2016 at 10:27 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I can't speak anything about the web-rendering part, which seemed at very least okay, in pair with firefox and chrome, if not somewhat better, sometimes. Even there the GUI alone could give it an edge sometimes as it had a button where you could choose to display/download no image at all, only display already cached images, or operate normally. Other browsers may even have that function, but it's hidden deeper in a less customizable GUI.

And customization was so easy and powerfull....

Application-specific recent files pipe-menus for Openbox

Posted 01-10-2016 at 09:55 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 01-14-2016 at 02:32 AM by the dsc (improvement)

Here's an example for GIMP:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

printf "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?><openbox_pipe_menu>"

# Instead of just "gimp" in the next line, it could even be a series of
# related programs, if you juggle between different applications with 
# these files. Such as "gimp\|inkscape\|krita\|mypaint"

grep -B 10 gimp ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel | \

Timeline / "slider" for Openbox' MPC pipe menu (obmpc.sh)

Posted 08-17-2015 at 07:27 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 03-18-2016 at 12:20 PM by the dsc

My most recent customization/tweak to a script that isn't really mine:

https://github.com/leomeloxp/dotfile...enbox/obmpc.sh

Change the denominator of "slice1" and the put the same number in the loop in order to have more or less time slices. It seems there may be something somewhat wrong with the maths, but seems to work nevertheless.

Code:
  echo "  <separator />"
    dur=$(mpc -f %time% | head -n 1)

[openbox] Some environment variables to fix irregular QT5 styles

Posted 08-11-2015 at 08:11 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 08-19-2015 at 03:39 PM by the dsc
Tags openbox, qt3, qt4, qt5

Code:
export QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=qtcurve
export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=kde
Some QT5 applications (systemsettings"5" -- why not call it systemsetting5, so the 5 is both the S amd the 5????!!!111 If you're going to change the binary name at least make it kooler) would use some default QT5 style, even when other QT5 (I guess) applications were already using the correct theming. Ops, nope, now I recall, I had it enforced by ksysgyard -style or exporting the style override at the...
