Opera Middle-Click Functionality

Posted 09-20-2011 at 03:56 PM by Snark1994

Just a handy hint to fix something which has bugged me for ages - if you middle click in Opera under Arch linux (and probably other distros), rather than scrolling, it tries to paste text and seems to end up searching for whatever's in your clipboard.

Luckily, this can be changed. Strangely, it's completely non-obvious.

Shift+Middle Click brings up a dialog which allows you to change your middle-click settings.

Test on prefix

Restart!

Partitioning, and formatting. Setting up an /etc/fstab and /etc/resovl.conf.
As a test, I downloaded lynx, and did

Quote:
./configure --prefix=$DST
where DST is the destination: /dev/sda3...

And...the install went straight to the right place: the hard drive instead of the ramdisk.

The first step is made.

Edit 2011-09-19:
This was written shortly after the 1 Febuary 2011 press release; but got left, unfinished, in "drafts".
Although I don't remember what else I was going to say, I am posting it now.
Needless to say, it deserves some updating about the last 9 months developments.

Thoughts on cross-posting & reporting it.

Posted 09-19-2011 at 11:08 AM by archtoad6

This was inspired by a recent triple post, & was originally going to be posted in the unclosed duplicate thread. As I got to the end of writing it, I realized that I was becoming guilty of "piling on" & decided to place this here in my blog instead.

<New User>,

Welcome to LQ. I hope you will return soon. If not, then the following may help some other newcomer to avoid your triple posting mistake.

Slackware-13.37-Hacks-SLiM

Posted 09-18-2011 at 10:50 PM by arniekat

Simple Login Manager

SLiM is a Lightweight Graphical Login Manager designed as a replacement for GDM/KDM/XDM.

Compile and install slim-1.3.2 from SlackBuilds.org

After installing SLiM, the only two changes I make are turning off the X Servers listening on Port 6000 TCP for incoming connections for use in Remote X-Windows Sessions (with the -nolisten tcp flag) and changing the default SLiM theme to use the Slackware theme.
