Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

KDE hidden command line tools

Posted 09-17-2015 at 02:03 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 09-24-2015 at 08:02 PM by the dsc

Haven't checked yet, posting as a "shared bookmark" and to myself:

http://www.bramschoenmakers.nl/node/610.html

I'm particularly interested in "kde-move". I've actually came up with bash-script approximations to the functionality of auto-renaming the moved files when the target directory has files with the same file names, but I've only made something that just does that by default, whereas KDE can do that but also allows one to compare and rename,...

Adding a "copy image to clipboard" editor (not really) to geeqie

Posted 09-07-2015 at 01:22 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 11-17-2016 at 03:46 PM by the dsc (UPDATE!)

Edit: I've just found a method that seems much simpler and more lightweight

The copy to clipboard editor can be just xclip! (Therefore one of my first statements in the first version of this post is probably false, and possibly was wrong even then).

Code:
xclip -selection c -t image/jpg < "%f"
It doesn't matter that the source isn't a jpeg, you can even replace it for png, it's probably an on-the-fly reencoding or something, I'm not sure.

[solved?] New GTK2 bug? Maybe it's a QtCurve bug. Theme changes randomly

Tags bugs, theme

UPDATE: whatever happened before, it seems that now it can be partly solved by simply commenting out the font-related lines in /usr/share/themes/QtCurve/gtk-2.0/kdeglobals (not to be confused with KDE's own file with the same name!).

After a while (after a massive upgrade) the randomness of the thing stopped, the correct theming consistently fails. More evidently fonts, icon theme, and colors (including tooltips' colors). I'm not sure the widget's "design" is also affected,...

Configuring "spare" wacom/drawing tablet space as extra keys or something else?

Posted 08-21-2015 at 01:02 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Tags tablet

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...

[UPDATED] Fix some GTK3 new bugs/"features" with a few simple configurations

"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. Also "remove overlay scroll indicators", so the scroll bar is always visible and occupies a definite space, instead of sometimes overlapping content and making it harder to click, as the overlay pops up.
