The "DE" environment variable affects xdg-open settings/behavior

Posted 05-16-2014 at 07:32 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I once saw someone who had "export DE=openbox", and so I changed accordingly, it was "kde" before, even though I'm on Openbox.

But now I realize that it affects things like xdg-open, which is set by configurations that I think aim to set almost-universal file associations. I think that perhaps Openbox "doesn't even count" as a DE to the related settings, so the result is that, for example, you can't open some stuff with the associated app from google...

ExTiX 14.1 Light, build 140515, with Razor-qt and kernel 3.15.0-0-exton

Bought a beaglebone black.

And a bunch of LEDs, resistors, jumpers and a breadboard. Time for a little fun.

Installed OpenBSD-5.5 on the beaglebone (tried running CURRENT...ouch. Compiling on this thing hurts because the sd card is so incredibly slow...probably my fault, as I used a cheap class 4 micro sd...).

Wired up a simple circuit and started gpioctl'ing pins. Hrmmm. Nothing works. Perform OpenBSD-project problem remediation:

Logrotate - Not Just for the System

Posted 05-13-2014 at 02:26 PM by rtmistler
Tags logrotate

I've seen a few threads about logrotate. Two thread types I've noticed are:
  1. Persons not understanding logrotate and how to use it
  2. Persons not happy with logrotate and it's normal means of operation - mainly because they'd like to use it for something other than the system log files.
My intentions here are to cover the second case however I will start describing a bit about logrotate and how to use it. So those who are new to logrotate and seeking some guidance, the general overview section...
