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...

"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.

a quick review of my debian 8.1 install - fail

Basically the debian install partition manager doesn't work. How in the world can you release an install image when the partition manager refuses to format the partitions you create?! I had to create the partitions, reboot into a gparted live bootable usb, format them, reboot into debian 8.1 to specify how to mount the damn partitions!


The other annoying thing, but this one is miniscule. Even though I downloaded a non free firmware iso, I still had to download the correct...

Timeline / "slider" for Openbox' MPC pipe menu (obmpc.sh)

My most recent customization/tweak to a script that isn't really mine:

https://github.com/leomeloxp/dotfile...enbox/obmpc.sh

Change the denominator of "slice1" and the put the same number in the loop in order to have more or less time slices. It seems there may be something somewhat wrong with the maths, but seems to work nevertheless.

Code:
  echo "  <separator />"
    dur=$(mpc -f %time% | head -n 1)

Awk line to convert [HH]:MM:SS to seconds

Posted 08-17-2015 at 06:35 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

awk -F':' '{if (NF == 2) {print $1 * 60 + $2} else {print $1 * 60 * 60 + $2 * 60 + $3}}'

I saw it somewhere and maybe tweaked a bit, maybe not -- I barely know anything of awk.

I find it particularly good because you can give just minutes or hours and minutes as input, there's no mandatory hours, unlike some other answers you'll see if you google for it, which will assume minutes as hours if there is no hours.

Of course, such assumption of the leading...
