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.

Minor but significant fix/tweak on GTK3's "clearlooks", getting away with excessive padding

I'm not a maintainer of this theme, this is a fix I did just for myself. Perhaps the theme's owners wouldn't even agree with it being a "fix".

GTK3's clearlooks had significantly more wasted space than its GTK2 predecessor. I guess it's due to the fad of "mobile first" design.

It's not that hard to make them more similar in this regard, all it requires is to open the CSS file and reduce several of the "padding" values.

Copy-and-pasted "tweaks" to a GTK3 port of the "Mist" theme

Posted 07-13-2017 at 02:20 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Nothing fancy, just some boxes and arrow(s) that were missing. I believe the port was this one:

https://github.com/mkoskar/gtk-theme-mist

The copy and pasted things were bits from the Albatross theme

https://www.gnome-look.org/content/s...content=123952
https://github.com/shimmerproject/Albatross

(Alongside with its "assets" folder linked within Mist's)

Both are GPL so I guess that's not illegal...

Rarely a website butchered its own interface so bad as Yahoo did to yahoogroups

You barely can search within a given group you're subscribed to -- better luck searching from google search with "site:groups.yahoo" and things like that.

Congratulations, yahoo, now hackers/defacers don't have anything to do there.

It's an old, massive transformation of a previously functional UI into a useless, unintuitive, clump of "featured bugs". I thought it would be fixed eventually, but it's just as bad as the first time they've ruined it....

OpenRC+sysv fixes Debian's (my Debian's) shutdown/reboot problem

Posted 07-02-2017 at 12:50 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

For some reason it was failing to unmount everything, and then simply halting indefinitely.

OpenRC/sysv seems to work fine, so far.

A console install is probably advised, if anyone is considering doing the same. After installing openrc, the install script will suggest a kind of pre-reboot line that will "manually" deactivate the services and then you should reboot. Which I did with sysreq, even though I probably shouldn't have.

I think they...
