Run your Ubuntu/Debian 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 4.4.0!

Posted 01-12-2016 at 04:51 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 01-12-2016 at 05:06 PM by exton (More info)

I have compiled yet another Ubuntu/Debian kernel for 64 bit systems. This time kernel 4.4.0-0-exton, equivalent to Kernel.orgs latest stable kernel 4.4.0 released 160110.

Whats new in kernel 4.4?

Install kernel 4.4.0-0-exton in Ubuntu/Debian based distributions
My self-compiled Ubuntu kernels can be used in all types of modern Ubuntu systems, including Mint. They can even be used in Debian Jessie (Debian 8.2) and Debian Stretch (upcoming Debian 9).

User style/CSS to get rid of Google's "come here often" pop-up

Posted 01-12-2016 at 02:00 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

@-moz-document domain("google.com")
 .gb_ga, .gb_g { display: none !important; }
British users probably need to change the domain to "google.co.uk" and likewise for some other countries that aren't subdomains of google.com;]

How to fix the Clock in Slackware

Posted 01-12-2016 at 09:14 AM by Ztcoracat

Many times I have tried fixing the clock in Slackware and for some reason timeconfig didn't work for me at all.

Open the terminal as root and run these commands one at a time.

Code:
# date -s "12:00:00"
Code:
ntpdate time.nist.gov
Finally to make the new set right time permanent also for the BIOS battery clock issue:
Code:
# hwclock

Application-specific recent files pipe-menus for Openbox

Posted 01-10-2016 at 10:55 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 01-14-2016 at 03:32 AM by the dsc (improvement)

Here's an example for GIMP:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

printf "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?><openbox_pipe_menu>"

# Instead of just "gimp" in the next line, it could even be a series of
# related programs, if you juggle between different applications with 
# these files. Such as "gimp\|inkscape\|krita\|mypaint"

grep -B 10 gimp ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel | \
