a quick review of my debian 8.1 install - fail

Posted 08-18-2015 at 01:20 AM by WestCoastSunset

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)

Posted 08-17-2015 at 07:27 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

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...

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),...

Windows 10 upgrade for all you dual booters

Posted 08-16-2015 at 01:44 AM by WestCoastSunset

Avoid windows 10 like the plague. I did an upgrade instead of a clean install. Jedi knight doesn't work at all (I really like DF2), Oblivion IV is actually slower, and my sound doesn't work.

t410
i5 2.53 ghz
8 gigs ram
nvs 3100m

These are actually pretty decent specs. I could see Oblivion not working, but Jedi?

Fortunately I have a disk image. It will be restored tonight.
