Resetting Workrave's suspended mode to normal every day

Posted 07-11-2019 at 08:23 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Add this to any start-up script, running before workrave itself:

Code:
gsettings set org.workrave.general operation-mode 0
Partly based on this, which didn't work:

'gsettings list-recursively | grep workrave" may help if they change something.

I don't get why use such thing rather than each program having its own txt config file. I thought...

Apparently there's some "race condition" that can wipe-out bash history if you break some kinds of loops

At least that's what apparently happened to me.
On Unix' stack exchange I've found this handy way of recovering it, partly at least, if you happen to have another terminal open, from before the wipe-out:

Code:
history | cut -c 8- > histback_user1.txt
The person who gave this tip suggested doing it in "every terminal", but I believe it would just overwrite it completely for whatever number of times one did it, with the simple ">." In order...

Chrome/ium userstyle that creates larger buttons for scrolling up and down.

I mostly use the scrollbar as "buttons," clicking below or above the handler, rather than grabbing the handler itself. So when I've scrolled down quite a bit, I'll often mistakenly click above the handler when I really wanted to scroll down. That's kind of possibly solved if those barely useful up and down buttons were large enough to be more useful than pressing page up, down, or arrow keys instead. So this usercss does that:

Code:
::-webkit-scrollbar {
  width: 12px;

Introduction to the World of Linux.

Updated 07-04-2019 at 08:16 AM by greencedar (grammar - the word 'the')

A lot of my work, I am a missionary on Taiwan, the Republic of China, is conducted on the computer. I write my lessons, sermons, and other material, in English and in Chinese. I use "Traditional," or sometimes called, "Complex", Chinese characters, written on a Chinese keyboard, in our work. So the ability to use Chinese is paramount in my selection of an OS.

In December 2015 my Windows 7 desktop OS crashed and after a long hard thought what to replace it with...
