hplip hpaio sane setup

Posted 08-17-2009 at 09:39 PM by lumak (Lumak's Guide to Random Things)

I have a PSC 1610 All-in-one printer that always gets auto recognized when I scan for it as root but I always forget how to configure it for regular users.

1. add "usb 0x03f0 0x4811" to /etc/sane.d/hpaio.conf
2. ensure 'hpaio' is uncommented in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf
3. ensure the user is added to the 'lp' group! or whatever group owns the device.


My device is /dev/lp0.
you can type "ls -l /dev/* | grep lp" to see if...

blender x86_64 compile guide for slackware64-pre-13.0-current

Posted 05-24-2009 at 12:01 AM by lumak (Lumak's Guide to Random Things)

Just use the latest blender 2.49. They now support python 2.6.2 AND ffmpeg. Only follow the below if you require verse-server (I don't know if their pre-compiled binaries support verse client functions though). Also, you have to export PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib64/python2.6 to run the pre-compiled binaries.

Slackware Undocumented 'Well Duh' Quark #2917 - console vim and X11 clipboard

Posted 03-20-2009 at 11:41 PM by lumak (Lumak's Guide to Random Things)
Updated 05-31-2009 at 02:41 PM by lumak

The special registers * and + do not function in console vim in Slackware. Vim has been compiled both with -clipboard and -xterm_clipboard. If you enable GPM, you can shift highlight in console vim to middle click past in any x application. You can also Shift+middle click in console vim to past text from any x application. If you don't want to use the Shift modifier, you can sacrifice mouse functionality and type ":set mouse=r" in normal mode. This issue does not affect gvim.

Compiling with new static libs

Posted 03-01-2009 at 11:27 AM by lumak (Lumak's Guide to Random Things)
Tags gtkpod, static

OK, had you read my other post on gnuCash, you know that I hate gnome dependencies. Some of the programs I use have up to 5 gnome dependencies and I don't feel it's worth it to install them. But I managed to compile them into the gtkpod binary using static libs. This goes against everything slackware has taught, but I feel that it was worth it in the end.

Basically, I have a build script that builds gtkpod. Before it does that, it will build its gnome dependencies as static libs...

THANK "BOB"!

Posted 01-19-2009 at 11:12 PM by lumak (Lumak's Guide to Random Things)
Tags styles

OK well maybe not "Bob" personally but 'god' didn't seem the right thing to thank at the moment. OK Off topic.

The other day I realized that the only way to fix webpage style conflicts with dark themed conflicts was to use a firefox add on. A little bit of searching later revealed "Stylish" Tnx-to-da-god-be this solves so many problems. It basically applies your own personal css styles to any page individually or all at once! After some tweaking, here is my...
