Fixing the fonts in Oracle Java 8, Debian

Posted 06-19-2014 at 02:43 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Tags fonts, java

That was funny. I had the same problem some time ago, in an earlier install, and then accidentally stumbled in my own answer to the problem, and I didn't even remember that I had solved it before, much less how I did it. That's why I need this blog. :-/

The problem is that when you run a java app with the exported parameters to use the GTK look and feel, it runs reasonably OK (perhaps not 100% identical, I didn't compare if carefuly, but at least it's way more homogeneous than the...

A completely uninteresting, self-centered whinefest

Posted 06-19-2014 at 01:37 AM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)

It seems fitting that my first new blog entry in months should be a means of procrastination. I have lofty goals for this space, but they are thus far mostly unfulfilled. This study in self-pity shouldn't be here, but I feel the need to write about it, and I can't think of another place to do so. Maybe I need a journal? Something where I can write the stuff that doesn't matter?

If you hadn't figured it out already, you can refrain from reading this post and your life will be no...

A much faster "du" alternative for the current folder (non-recursive)

Posted 06-17-2014 at 09:55 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 06-17-2014 at 10:21 PM by the dsc (grammar, "benchmarks")

Code:
find . -maxdepth 1 -printf %k"000\n" | awk '{  sum += $1 } END { print sum }' | numfmt --from=auto --to=iec-i
I was annoyed with the fact that "du", with whatever parameters I tried to get only the usage for the files on the root of the current folder (i. e., non-recursive), took ages to give the result, while the value comes comparatively instantaneously when you're browsing the folders on a file manager like Konqueror or some other, with that indication. I don't...

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.15.0!

Posted 06-16-2014 at 12:02 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.1 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk, SlackEX and Exton|Defender. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 3.15.0-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.15 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released (20140608).

Feature OVERVIEW for the Linux 3.15 kernel
