Features:
  • Cleanup old backup files quickly with feedback on operations being done.
  • Outstanding doc viewer that doesn't tie up your terminal.
--------------------
See the link below for the "how and why" to install these as symlinks in your HOME/bin folder. Need functions for 'browse', 'launch', 'tofile'? It's all here.

More Mad Computer Science? (Simple multi-threading in a shell script)

Posted 01-20-2012 at 09:02 AM by rainbowsally

Just dropping by? Here's an easy one. And it's kind of fun.

We've already created a launch utility in this blog, but let's create one that works on other folks systems so they don't need to "install" (so to speak) anything to get the benefits of the functionality.

First let's look at the principles involved

Let's read fstab as a normal user. Don't 'su' or 'sudo su' here, because we don't actually want to be able to write to it. Just picking...

Computer Mad Science: Classic Style KDE Menu (Shows That We CAN...)

I don't necessarily think the old menu style is better than the new one, but what if I wanted a screen shot that showed that we can create retro apps and "reto"fit them into the KDE menus, with a proper (and perhaps new) heirarchy so we can run them from either style menu.

First let's take a look at the Science/Mathematics/XMaxima menu as it appears in the old-style menus.

KDE Utils: new.image <format>

More 'new' funcs for KDE. Most of these will work with other Window managers but some rely on KDE gui apps so we'll call these KDE utilities.

--------------------
These posts may also be of interest or may fill in some blanks if any of this post seems to be missing some pieces.

Personal HOME/bin installer/uninstaller, no superuser req'd here and reason for 'new(dot)' file (or file set) creation:

Let's Go Retro Now, Everybody's Learning How...

Living on the "Trailing Edge" of computer development sometimes makes a LOT of sense.

1. Kdevelop 3 vs. 4.

The kde4 version of this ide/programming editor became a bit too ambitious, I think. Spitting out one perfect plasma widgets at the click of a button. But it's unrealistic to think that an automatic plasmoid creator will lead to programming prowess and many of the old features that were in kdevelop3 are sorely missed.

I'd take the graphical...
