Fixing MS or webcore font display issues.

There are numerous threads on LQ and elsewhere on how to pretty up fonts on Linux. However, I one thing has still bothered me for years: on some web sites the font rendering looked jagged despite using a system or downloaded font, sometimes a fallback font family, that looked fine elsewhere. It didn't matter which browser was used and sometimes affected LibreOffice, etc.

As it turns out, Microsoft fonts look jagged because Freetype, the font rendering engine used by Linux, takes...

[SOLVED] "Really dead" dead keys on KDE apps, within Openbox, at least

For whatever reason I was having this issue for a while now. That means that when trying to type characters such as "дук" the result would be just "aoe".

Apparently it has something to do with xim/scim/ibus, or evdev, whatever.

Regardless, a "solution" was (to me) to have the following environment variable set:

Code:
export QT_IM_MODULE=xim
Which I'm adding to openbox' "environment" file and changing the...

Repeated keybinding definitions aren't sequentially overridden in openbox

Posted 03-06-2017 at 09:05 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Just in case someone is going crazy with it.

If some keybinding seems to have a strange behavior, like being associated with more than one thing or bringing up multiple instances of the same thing, then you may have the same key-binding being set more than once.

If it's a duplicate, it will do the thing it's set to do twice (or thrice... yeah), like opening two instances of the same application.

Golf, Golf & more Golf!

Posted 03-06-2017 at 10:30 AM by onebuck

Hi,

Been working on my game a lot lately. Playing daily and playing on outside course once a week with a great group of guys. Last week missed by points by one stroke. My putting is a little off right now, I think I need to have my eyes checked again. Damn floater in my right eye changes my depth perception. Not good for a golfer when reading a green's grain for speed & direction.

Still doing work around the house, pops up all the time. MY task list is down too four...
