OK I don't really have a good title yet but I figure I can post works in progress and other tips I've come across or other interesting things.
Random Linux Guides Just random guides to fixing or doing something that doesn't require scripts because you do it once and it's done or use it rarely.

Fluxbox - Terminal Window PC Game Style

MOVED: I added this to the fluxbox wiki under "Category:Configuration howtos" Any changes may go on either. Enjoy.

Warning. I tried this on my much older 32 bit laptop and it didn't respond that quickly to toggling the consoles. I'm guessing that long bit of code for the key command actually takes more processing than I thought.


OK I realized I could make xterm (any terminal?) act like the command console in a FPS game. So here are all the settings...

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.

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...

Fixing the MBR without loosing data.

First let me explain my situation. I was playing with Slackware 12.1 and making partitions on a new system, I got lost somewhere withmy partitions and had the crazy idea of dualbooting slackware to have a safe build environment from my system. (I ended up just using the build environment which lead me to wanting a chroot jail instead... ANYWAY)

I screwed things up and had lilo installed on boot records in several different places. How do you fix this then?!

You restore...
