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.

In line with the idea of reducing how much it's written on SSD, some people suggest using tmpfs for lots of things, one of them can be the ~/.cache directory. Which must be implemented in a per-user basis or with some pre-mount script that would do such tmpfs mounts before each user login. But regardless, the point is that they may spare the SSD, but not the RAM, obviously. If you quit a cache-heavy program, its cache would still be there, leaving other programs you're running with less RAM to use....

Apparently on GIMP you can't set the stylus button 3 as an instant color picker. The default is to hold control and click, which is not that much of a hassle, but it's interesting to have this kind of functionality more uniformly activated.

A hacky way of getting an approximation of it is along the line(s) of:

Code:
while true ; do xdotool getactivewindow getwindowname | grep GIMP && xsetwacom set "Wacom Bamboo Pen stylus" Button 3 "key Control button
