I always tend to learn my lessons the hard way!


Latest lesson learnt:
A stitch in time saves nine.

Background story:
A year back a part of my grinding tooth broke off! I took it

runc update Sept 27, 2013

Removes destructor functions from objlist so that each class explicitly free anything memory they allocate.
Added atexit() function to tmpmem/tmpstr functions.
Most of these changes address memory leaks and/or memory that remains accessible after the apps close.

Gnome 2/MATE leave message

Posted 09-04-2013 at 10:18 AM by drask

I've been using the MATE screensaver instead of xscreensaver just because when you lock your screen someone can leave you a message. However, I was having a problem where if I actually try leaving myself a message, it never showed up. I got the answer for this from the following wiki page:

Basically, you must install the "notification-daemon" package. Then if someone leaves you a...
