How to fix (possibly) wrong icon appearing for hp-systray

Posted 04-17-2014 at 06:37 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Depending on your DE configurations -- probably if you use KDE or mainly KDE/qt applications (I'm on Openbox, but I have "export DE=KDE" on my autostart for some reason), or perhaps if you use tint2, HP systray applet may show up with non-responsive "stolen" icons from neighbor applications and behave oddly in general.

It's generally set to autorun by there being a file "/etc/xdg/autostart/hplip-systray.desktop". All you got to do is to edit such...

Exton|OS 64 bit with Mate 1.6.2 :: build 140415 :: (Ubuntu 14.04 in advance)

Posted 04-15-2014 at 10:13 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Exton|OS is based on upcoming Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit (to be released in a stable version April 26, 2014) and Debian Jessie. Exton|OS’s ISO file a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to an USB pen drive. You can then even run Exton|OS from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! I’ve found two scripts which make the installation to USB very simple. The scripts are quite ingenious. My tests show that they work flawlessly...

I moved recently to the Seattle area for a job with Amazon.

I'd had Time Warner Cable in San Antonio, which was woefully under-saavy for some of the stuff I was wanting to do (mostly revolving around IPv6), so I was excited to see what opportunities there were with new ISPs in Seattle. My wife didn't want to live *in* Seattle, so we got a nice rental setup out near Renton, a little ways south of Seattle.

One of our next door neighbors is a Comcast employee, as evidenced...

Build 140411 of SlackEX 14.1 with kernel 3.14

Posted 04-11-2014 at 02:39 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Why replace version 140326 with version 140411?
To my horror I discovered that some programs (including K3b and MPlayer) could not be started due to various unfulfilled program dependencies. The problems are now fixed in version 140411. Additionally could version 4.8.6 of Gimp not open jpg files. To deal with the problem, I had to install version 4.8.10 (latest stable version) of Gimp from source.

As I still had to fix various software problems I took the opportunity to replace...
