Idea for a script to prevent xscreensaver while watching videos on a browser

Posted 03-15-2015 at 12:54 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

The core concept is just:


Code:
while true ; do

wmctrl -l | grep -i "youtube\|vimeo" && xscreensaver-command -deactivate

sleep 5m

done
Perhaps it would be more elegant to have something that somehow works more accordingly to xscreensaver's time rather than this thing that has smaller cycles just to play it safe.

Won't work for embedded videos, though, as "youtube"...

Debian and Google Chrome

Posted 08-09-2011 at 06:52 PM by DJ Shaji

I'm really beginning to like Google Chrome. It is definitely fast, loads web pages quickly, and uses just about the right amount of memory. The only caveat I've encountered is that there are still not many quality extensions available. Hopefully that will be fixed soon.

So You Want to Surf Gopherspace

Posted 08-01-2010 at 02:47 PM by uxrs75

Anyone remember the Gopher protocol? I don't---at least, I don't remember it at its height. I first came across gopher in 1999, but only really started exploring it about five years ago, well after most nodes had been shuttered and their content moved to http. But even in its reduced form, there was a charm about gopher that drew me in, and which has taken root. And so, every so often, I wander through gopherspace, just to see what might be new, or old, or forgotten, or simply to enjoy the peace...

URI Passing in Elinks

Posted 07-30-2010 at 01:45 PM by uxrs75
Tags browser, cli, elinks

Programmes: elinks
Files to edit: ~/elinks/elinks.conf

URI passing allows a frame, link, or tab in elinks to be opened in another browser (say, Firefox, or Konqueror). It can be quite helpful when dealing with those sites that have not yet embraced the Any-Browser philosophy, or for which image-viewing (either consol- or X-based) does not work.

There are two ways to enable URI passing in elinks, the menu way, and the editor way. I'll be using the editor way here....

Viewing Images With Elinks

Posted 07-30-2010 at 01:33 PM by uxrs75

Programmes: elinks, fbida
Files to edit: ~/.elinks/elinks.conf

Start by installing a suitable image viewer. I use fbida, as it provides both a framebuffer-, and X-based image viewer (fbi and ida respectively).

Next, add some MIME types to elinks.conf.

Code:
set mime.extension.jpg="image/jpeg"
set mime.extension.jpeg="image/jpeg"
set mime.extension.png="image/png"
set mime.extension.gif="image/gif"
...
