[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...

Opera Presto had the best GUI ever. Ever.

Posted 02-21-2016 at 10:27 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I can't speak anything about the web-rendering part, which seemed at very least okay, in pair with firefox and chrome, if not somewhat better, sometimes. Even there the GUI alone could give it an edge sometimes as it had a button where you could choose to display/download no image at all, only display already cached images, or operate normally. Other browsers may even have that function, but it's hidden deeper in a less customizable GUI.

And customization was so easy and powerfull....

Application-specific recent files pipe-menus for Openbox

Posted 01-10-2016 at 09:55 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 01-14-2016 at 02:32 AM by the dsc (improvement)

Here's an example for GIMP:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

printf "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?><openbox_pipe_menu>"

# Instead of just "gimp" in the next line, it could even be a series of
# related programs, if you juggle between different applications with 
# these files. Such as "gimp\|inkscape\|krita\|mypaint"

grep -B 10 gimp ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel | \ 
grep
