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.

Sometimes Openbox' own rc.xml "application" settings will work when devilspie doesn't

Posted 12-06-2018 at 10:19 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

For whatever reason Devil's Pie stopped working with the geeqie "move" dialog. My preferred GTK3 theme is kind of broken and will naturally create a window that's kind of crunched in itself, but it can be circumvented by determining its size. For a long while it worked with Devil's Pie, for some reason it stopped working.

But fortunately Openbox' own settings can fix it:

Code:
       <application role="dlg_dest_folder" >
      <position

Disable chromium/chrome printing for a given profile

Posted 12-02-2018 at 07:43 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Are you tired of selecting text, right-clicking to search the term, and accidentally releasing the button on "print"? Worry no more!

Despite of what a developer said, it can be done by manually editing the "Preferences" json file. For linux at least.

Quote:
This way: Open the profile folder, find the JSON file Preferences, find "printing" field (browser->extensions->printing), then add , "enabled": false into it.

"Always on top" indicator script for Openbox

Posted 11-16-2018 at 06:47 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 12-04-2018 at 08:36 PM by the dsc

May have some use outside of Openbox as well, I don't know. I have Openbox set up so the window focus will follow the mouse cursor, no need to click them to raise and so on, which I find usually convenient but sometimes it requires to toggle some windows to "always on top" in order to do some drag-and-drop operations and things like that. If I forget to do it, one of the windows will disappear below another and that's a bit annoying; sometimes I may have even toggled it, but toggled it...

Tabbed xterm with suckless' "tabbed"

Posted 11-02-2018 at 10:40 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Just found about it today.

With the program "tabbed" you can put xterm (maybe some other stuff, or similar terminals specifically, haven't examined it more than that) on a tabbed interface on Openbox (on Fluxbox anything can be tabbed with no additional tools...).

Just by issuing it as such:

tabbed -c xterm -into

I found useful to add this to .bashrc:

Code:
cmdline="$(tr -d '\0' </proc/$PPID/cmdline)"

Switching tabs with mouse wheel on Palemoon (and older Firefoxes?)

Posted 10-22-2018 at 04:10 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

There are some extensions for that, but it is not strictly needed: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/howto-en...se-wheel/39954

The linked tutorial is intended for people who don't use terminals that much, and ironically I find somewhat confusing, not that I'm any sort of master of all terminals or anything. The summarized version is, in the browser directory ("~/.moonchild productions/pale moon" for palemoon), on whatever user profiles subdirectories...
