I have made a new version of DebEX KDE Live DVD. It replaces version 150219. It’s a pure Debian 8.1 system. I.e.: There are no Ubuntu or Kubuntu elements involved. DebEX KDE uses KDE 4.14.3 and KDE Plasma Desktop 5:84 as Desktop environment and kernel 4.1.0-3-exton. I have installed Nvidia’s proprietary graphic driver 352.41.

It's not an urgent matter so I won't post on the forums. But if anyone knows it's possible I'm quite interesting in directions on how to do it, specially if it's something more or less trivial, like not requiring to re-program the driver or something.

If the title/subject isn't clear, sometimes, in order to have the tablet area proportional with the screen, one may need to "unmap"/deactivate some of the tablet area. Then perhaps this could be configured as extra keys or...

"Legacy scrolling". Back then clicking on the scroll bar meant to go about a page up or down, not that you magically know the exact content that is at that absolute point.

I had to create the partitions, reboot into a gparted live bootable usb, format them, reboot into debian 8.1 to specify how to mount the damn partitions!


The other annoying thing, but this one is miniscule. Even though I downloaded a non free firmware iso, I still had to download the correct...

Timeline / "slider" for Openbox' MPC pipe menu (obmpc.sh)

Posted 08-17-2015 at 07:27 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

My most recent customization/tweak to a script that isn't really mine:

https://github.com/leomeloxp/dotfile...enbox/obmpc.sh

Change the denominator of "slice1" and the put the same number in the loop in order to have more or less time slices. It seems there may be something somewhat wrong with the maths, but seems to work nevertheless.

Code:
  echo "  <separator />"
    dur=$(mpc -f %time% | head -n 1)
