Lubuntu conky and compton

Posted 07-20-2014 at 09:13 PM by t1nm@n (Tux and Me)

Getting a good desktop with effects like shadows and stuff is the challenge here. After some fiddling around (conky doesnot play well with compton), I was able to get a working setup.

1. Installing compton
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:richardgv/compton
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install compton
2. Open /home/<user>/.config/compton.conf, create one if it doesnot exist. Put these in
Code:
# Shadow
shadow = true;			# Enabled

Windows PowerSh**

grep is such a simple concept. You have a stream of text lines, and you look for lines in the output that match a pattern. Really, really simple.

Take the following, for example:

some-command | grep 'pattern'

I know this is difficult to understand because it's overly complex, but that's how things work on *nix.

Try doing that on PowerShell. You end up with something like:

(some-command|out-strings -stream) | select-strings...

Adding [code][/code] tags to your posts

Posted 12-02-2014 at 06:23 AM by rtmistler
Updated 01-07-2015 at 06:49 AM by rtmistler

In LQ it is beneficial to use [code][/code] tags around your code.

All you need to do is to border your code with the [code][/code] tags and the result will appear as following:
Code:
#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
 ...
}
Do I have to type the tags in, or are there widgets to help me with this?
In Advanced edit mode the # (number sign) icon will assist you with this, it will add tags around selected text, or add tags where you can then type...

Android KitKat 4.4.4 x86 – Exton build – for laptops

Posted 03-02-2015 at 03:01 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 03-20-2015 at 04:33 PM by exton (Added info)

I have compiled an Android x86 system (KitKat 4.4.4), which can run live (from CD) or be installed on almost all laptops (and some Desktop computers). For example Acer, HP, Samsung, Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo, Thinkpad, Fujitsu, Panasonic and Ausus laptops. The Android system is distributed in the form of an ISO file as the rest of my Linux distributions. I.e. you must (as usual) burn the ISO file to a CD if you want to run the system live on your computer or install it to hard drive. Read about how...
