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.

Apparently I got rid of this message popping up every now and then on some scripts (calling things like hsetroot, feh, I'm not sure which triggered it, but I'm almost certain it wasn't a single thing) by installing a somewhat "hidden" i386 package on Debian:

sudo apt-get install libgtk3-nocsd0:i386

Global configuration for "always-use-location-entry" in GTK?

One of those things I can't understand in UI design is the need some designers have to force the user to have to click or press key combinations to display things that could well have been available the entire time, with no harm whatsoever to the usability, much to the contrary. I guess some people think it's cool and nerdier to have to remember the combinations.

In order to have the location field always shown on nautilus, apparently one can use the command:
gsettings set
