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.

If you prefer kdialog over "gtkdialog" on chrome-based browsers, you may need to uninstall xdg-portal-gtk, apparently

Posted 01-25-2022 at 04:29 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

It's likely there is a more proper way of doing it, not needing to uninstall, but I just lost my patience at this point.

Maybe still needs the non-GTK versions, a "neutral" one and a kde and a qt5 one, I can't really tell. I was about to uninstall them all, but occurred to me to try to uninstall just the gtk one, and voilŠ, I had kdialog on chrome-based-browsers again.


Why can't things be set by text files or environment variables with sane standards?...

[SOLVED?] Kdialog ("save file as") extremely slow to show up

Posted 10-08-2019 at 12:15 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

There are plenty of threads around the internet with this problem, not everyone is able to reproduce it, and probably "fixes" don't always work. In my case, I'm not even on KDE/plasma, even though I prefer KDE file managers and dialogs.

What I found that worked for me so far was from here: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/dolphin-...-load/69134/11

[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...

Apparent bug with KDE/plasma file associations

Posted 03-27-2016 at 01:22 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

At least in Ubuntu wily, it doesn't seem to allow you to chose the default application to open a file type. You try to do it, but it "magically" restores the previous default association before your eyes. Even if you chanced the config file, somehow. (I'm assuming it's mimeapps.lst, but I'm not sure. It seems that it's cool nowadays to have cryptic, hidden config files, avoiding to mention them unless strictly necessary, pretending it's all magic and config files don't exist)

Surprisingly, Krita from an unofficial Ubuntu's repo seems to work better than Debian's official

Posted 08-16-2015 at 11:42 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Krita "lemon", from some unofficial "neon" project, of Ubuntu, but running on Debian testing/Sid/Stretch.

I know it goes against all sorts of recommendations from both Debian and Ubuntu, perhaps even computing in general, but it seems to work fine so far.

The official version was quite slow to start up (to the point that sometimes I thought it simply wasn't going to ever start). And maybe it's just a difference between the versions (2.8 vs 2.9),...
