[WORK-AROUND] Bug on dragging windows of KDE/QT apps under openbox

If you accidentally (or not) click/hold and drag the left mouse button from the inner area ("client" or "any empty area") in a KDE/QT window, it starts to be dragged/moved along, but it's not dropped when you release the button, unlike the behavior with GTK windows (at least GTK2, I guess). You got to press "enter" or "esc", I guess.

Presumably that doesn't happen under KDE proper/kwin, maybe not even with other window managers, but I didn't...

Apparent bug with KDE/plasma file associations

Posted 03-27-2016 at 01:22 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

At least in Ubuntu wily, it doesn't seem to allow you to chose the default application to open a file type. You try to do it, but it "magically" restores the previous default association before your eyes. Even if you chanced the config file, somehow. (I'm assuming it's mimeapps.lst, but I'm not sure. It seems that it's cool nowadays to have cryptic, hidden config files, avoiding to mention them unless strictly necessary, pretending it's all magic and config files don't exist)

"Systemd sometimes doesn't shutdown" -- collecting links and info

Posted 01-31-2015 at 10:46 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 09-18-2015 at 10:14 AM by the dsc

It's very sporadic, somewhat rare, so I won't really open a thread on the forums themselves, but I'll just collect links and snippets here hoping there's some way to fix it, if it doesn't get fixed "by itself"/by systemd/debian developers first.

Quote:
I have Mate desktop and Slim installed:
halt_cmd /sbin/systemctl poweroff -i
reboot_cmd /sbin/systemctl reboot -i
like this, when I request shutdown all applications exit and then slim restart

Possible bug with Debian's Konqueror/Dolphin/KDE and zip extraction, and how to fix

I noticed that there was no longer the "extract" context submenu for zip files after one of the last updates. Then I went to check the ".desktop" files on /usr/share/kde4, and noticed that they had an editing mistake in the mimetype line:

Code:
MimeType= ... application/x-lzma-compressed-tar;application/zipapplication/x-deb; ...
I guess it was probably something related with deb packages, which must have edited this line and "forgot" to add the...

debian lenny - STABLE bug.

Posted 07-21-2010 at 11:21 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

I have just lost my backup data thanks to STABLE versions of stupid GUI "xfburn".
Of course it was mainly my fault I didn't check if it was written okay or not and just put that away then removed source files from hard disk. Im now wondering what's on that DVD disc, some space looks to be non-empty but mounted disc is empty. Quest for future. Luckily, the data wasn't that way important so that's why I didn't check it, in oppose to other discs I've written that day.
