Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

Krusader file manager has a search functionality with a "locate" backend, rather than Baloo or other stuff

Posted 04-08-2021 at 01:26 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Krusader is a midnight-commander-like QT file manager, more fully-featured/Swiss-army-knife than Dolphin, sort of like the KDE3 Konqueror, but with only a single layout profile, I think, unlike Konqueror, which could be toggled from a Krusader-like GUI to something like Dolphin or simpler, besides a PDF reader or a image viewer like Geeqie. How I miss it.

Anyway, if you want to search something with locate and create dozens of symlinks in a single folder for more careful inspection...

Prototype/principle for a wrapper script for multiple media players to use the same Openbox keybindings, depending on which one is running

Most likely not the most elegant way of doing it, and not fully functional (for mpv) regarding the display of media info:


Code:
#!/bin/bash

if pgrep -x mpv ; then

echo '{"command": ["playlist-next"]}' > /tmp/mpvsocket

#title=$(echo '{ "command": ["get_property", "media-title"] }'  >  /tmp/mpvsocket)

#title=( $(wmctrl -l | grep mpv$ ) ) 

#title=$(echo

The Vivaldi browser is gradually incorporating UI customization features that bring it closer to Opera 12

Posted 03-22-2021 at 05:14 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

And I guess also adding some new interesting ones, like tab stacking, even though that may be originally from Chrome itself, even if perhaps Vivaldi may add some extra options, I don't know -- auto-stacking, maybe.

The last time I checked, it seemed just as another Chrome variant that only had a few tweaks I didn't even like on the GUI, and little on useful customizations. Now it even has mouse gestures enabled by default, and without even realizing, I'm often closing and opening...

Second auto-hiding tint2 panel equivalent to Openbox' client-list combined menu, on the top-center of the screen

The client-list combined menu shows a list of windows from all desktops, with the window titles. It's good for moving fast to a given window when you have lots of them spread around, maximized and minimized. But it does not allow you to move windows between desktops, and requires a click in order to be activated.

Tint2 taskbar is able to do both things, and does not need clicking to be brought, with the auto-hide functionality set. But the standard inconvenience is that it's a horizontal...

tint2conf -- very nice configuration tool for tint2, comes by default with Debian's tint2, I guess

Posted 03-07-2021 at 06:07 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Tags openbox, tint2

I've been using tint2 for ages already, and I didn't know this config program existed. I've even had found something that looks like an older version of it before I found out I actually had it installed already.

https://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages...nt2conf.1.html

I'm not that much into it for the merely aesthetical aspect of the configuration, but because it allows you (indirectly) to create something like a secondary tint2 bar that's quite different from...
