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.

"Always on top" indicator script for Openbox

Posted 11-16-2018 at 05:47 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 12-04-2018 at 07:36 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 09:40 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 03:10 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...

Software comparison FAIL

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

https://www.slant.co/versus/3761/7441/~slim_vs_lightdm

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:
