DebEX (Debian 8.1) Gnome with kernel 4.1.0-3-exton

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

NEWS 150831 about DebEX Gnome
I have made a new extra version of DebEX, which I call DebEX Gnome Live DVD. It’s a pure Debian system. It uses Gnome 3.14 and Mate 1.8.2 as Desktop environments. Gnome 3.14 is winning back disillusioned Linux users. I have installed Nvidia’s proprietary graphic driver 352.41 in this new version of DebEX. Furthermore Google Chrome to make it possible to watch Netflix movies. All other installed packages have also been updated to the latest version as of 150831....

[solved?] New GTK2 bug? Maybe it's a QtCurve bug. Theme changes randomly

UPDATE: whatever happened before, it seems that now it can be partly solved by simply commenting out the font-related lines in /usr/share/themes/QtCurve/gtk-2.0/kdeglobals (not to be confused with KDE's own file with the same name!).

After a while (after a massive upgrade) the randomness of the thing stopped, the correct theming consistently fails. More evidently fonts, icon theme, and colors (including tooltips' colors). I'm not sure the widget's "design" is also affected,...

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.
