Dealing with gxmessage windows on wmctrl

Posted 01-12-2020 at 05:25 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

If you ever see yourself wanting to manipulate gxmessage dialogs/windows with wmctrl for some reason, you may notice the name of the window set by gxmessage itself is kind of ignored, depending on the parameters you'd use on wmctrl. It will instead still behave as if the window title was "Gxmessage," or yet "gxmessage.Gxmessage," depending on wmctrl parameters. Which is troublesome if you have more than one.

I thought it would be needed to grep the title from a...

How to read man pages

Posted 01-10-2020 at 11:50 AM by hazel
Updated 01-16-2020 at 05:48 AM by hazel

The Problem
Linux newbies tend to find man pages somewhat offputting. That may be because they are very concentrated, compressing a large amount of information into a small, highly-formatted package. They go back conceptually to the original UNIX Programmers' Manual, which was designed for experts who just wanted to bone up on something occasionally.

PCManFM-qt has become pretty much a complete replacement for Dolphin/Konqueror

Posted 12-31-2019 at 04:58 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

It has split view, and can have a permanent filter field, at the same time it's faster to come about and perhaps even to navigate (that may be just an illusory impression).

It's still miles and miles away from KFM of KDE3, but I believe humankind will never again match that greatness. Sad that "trinity" never got as much adoption as Mate.
