Posted 08-31-2015 at 08:32 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Well, not totally "randomly", it seems it always "falls back" to a specific theme whose name I don't know, not to any random theme from the whole pool of themes.

I think that it has been a week or so that the GTK2 apps will randomly/sometimes use one other theme than what I use (qtcurve), even though I've exported the GTK2_RC_FILES or whatever in every possible moment imaginable (even though I'm not sure i saw it happen with export "GTK2=whatever &&...

Configuring "spare" wacom/drawing tablet space as extra keys or something else?

It's not an urgent matter so I won't post on the forums. But if anyone knows it's possible I'm quite interesting in directions on how to do it, specially if it's something more or less trivial, like not requiring to re-program the driver or something.

If the title/subject isn't clear, sometimes, in order to have the tablet area proportional with the screen, one may need to "unmap"/deactivate some of the tablet area. Then perhaps this could be configured as extra keys or...

Fix some GTK3 new bugs/"features" with a few simple configurations

"Legacy scrolling". Back then clicking on the scroll bar meant to go about a page up or down, not that you magically know the exact content that is at that absolute point. Also "remove overlay scroll indicators", so the scroll bar is always visible and occupies a definite space, instead of sometimes overlapping content and making it harder to click, as the overlay pops up.
