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.

Software comparison FAIL

Posted 09-08-2018 at 07:29 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

It's comparing the display manager LightDM with the PHP framework (or something) Slim, not the display manager.

That's far worse than apples and oranges, more like apples and long-sleeve shirts.

Getting rid of " ERROR: ld.so: object 'libgtk3-nocsd.so.0' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (cannot open shared object file): ignored"

Apparently I got rid of this message popping up every now and then on some scripts (calling things like hsetroot, feh, I'm not sure which triggered it, but I'm almost certain it wasn't a single thing) by installing a somewhat "hidden" i386 package on Debian:

Code:
sudo apt-get install libgtk3-nocsd0:i386
I saw about it here:

Proof of concept script to make GIMP more similar to MyPaint or Krita, for painting/drawing

Apparently on GIMP you can't set the stylus button 3 as an instant color picker. The default is to hold control and click, which is not that much of a hassle, but it's interesting to have this kind of functionality more uniformly activated.

A hacky way of getting an approximation of it is along the line(s) of:

Code:
while true ; do xdotool getactivewindow getwindowname | grep GIMP && xsetwacom set "Wacom Bamboo Pen stylus" Button 3 "key Control button

Global configuration for "always-use-location-entry" in GTK?

Posted 04-11-2018 at 08:28 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

One of those things I can't understand in UI design is the need some designers have to force the user to have to click or press key combinations to display things that could well have been available the entire time, with no harm whatsoever to the usability, much to the contrary. I guess some people think it's cool and nerdier to have to remember the combinations.

In order to have the location field always shown on nautilus, apparently one can use the command:
Code:
gsettings set

KDE 4/5 trash bug is gonna have its 15th birthday sometime soon

Whereas most file managers are able to correctly trash files to trash folders located in their own partitions (even pcmanfm-qt), Dolphin moves the files to the user's home partition. And Dolphin's own trash won't list nor delete permanently trash in different partitions, trashed by other, proper, file managers.

I thought I had it solved somehow (manually creating the trash folders, if I recall), with some late left-overs...
