tint2conf -- very nice configuration tool for tint2, comes by default with Debian's tint2, I guess

Tags openbox, tint2

I've been using tint2 for ages already, and I didn't know this config program existed. I've even had found something that looks like an older version of it before I found out I actually had it installed already.

I'm not that much into it for the merely aesthetical aspect of the configuration, but because it allows you (indirectly) to create something like a secondary tint2 bar that's quite different from...

Making Dolphin instances launched by Chrome or Firefox follow the QT theme set elsewhere, in Openbox, possibly other non-KDE environments

Posted 03-05-2021 at 01:46 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 03-07-2021 at 07:28 PM by the dsc

I had this issue, if I clicked to open a folder for a downloaded file on Chrome, the Dolphin file manager launched would be somewhat theme-less, even without any icon theme set, making it less usable than the same program if I ran it from an Openbox menu or "alt+F2" run command.

While I was hoping there was a somewhat "secret" environment variable that I hadn't set in order to make it work right, I couldn't find one. Instead the only "solution" I have...

ArchEX (Arch Linux Live) with Deepin 20.1, LXQt 0.16.0, kernel 5.11.2-arch1-1, Yay, Spotify and Calamares Installer – Build 210305

NEWS about ArchEX 210305
A new version of ArchEX (Arch Linux Live) is ready! In this new version, which I call ArchEX 2021, I have added the Deepin 20.1 (latest) Desktop environment. Deepin (made in China!) is devoted to providing a beautiful, easy to use, safe and reliable system for global users. I came to like Deepin very much when I installed it in ExTiX 21.1. So I thought why not install Deepin also in ArchEX?

This version (210305) of ArchEX replaces...

What purpose does serve in /etc/hosts besides
I posted the question to the Debian social group in this thread.
I remember seeing references to it being needed for gnome, but does it? Really? I've been using gnome without it for ages. No hill-behavior perceived.
I went on and asked a search engine about it and here's what I found:
The search engine pointed me to read the Debian reference which pointed to a Debian bug #719621 in debian-reference package...

First question to Debian social group

Posted 03-02-2021 at 04:26 AM by Ninguém (Anybody's business)
Updated 03-03-2021 at 05:12 AM by Ninguém

I decided to pursue the subject brought up by zrong in keep /etc/hosts up to date (dhcp) regarding being Debian specific to the Debian social group.
Lets see if it sparks any interaction...
Here is the thread. I don't think this kind of thread can be referenced with bbcode using [thread].
Well, it didn't.
I ended up (sort of) answering my own question, maybe a little too soon, and certainly too loosely and imprecise as well.
I intend to get...
