Hi rmcellig you're short of time, so try this:
It seems to work OK with streamripper.

The reason you have to tell openbox to "Reconfigure" is to get it to re-read the file you've just edited. (If you made a mistake in the xml it will pop up an error message.)

^doesn't look good. Maybe you've got some file system corruption? You could try forcing a fsck (file system check, which fixes corrupted sections). Run this

sudo touch /forcefsck

then reboot.

^There's no guarantee that anyone is checking the forums, every single thread, just in case there's a question raised that they might want to respond to...

It might be nice if the forum software had a function that emailed users any time their name was invoked in a forum post, but meanwhile if you want to be sure someone gets your message the only way is a private message. (Even then they have to log in and check their "private messages" link.)

Not thrilled with having my directory permissions "fixed" to be honest:

xombrero: fixing invalid permissions on /home/john/downloads

Forget what /home/john/downloads had before - it's a symlink to /data/john/downloads which now is:

drwx------ 26 john john 4096 Nov 10 14:03 downloads

unlike my other directories which are mostly

It's in backports (on Wheezy) so to get all the dependencies you need to do 'apt-get -t wheezy-backports xombrero'.

#14 Re: Help & Support (Stable) » How to get display notifications by cronjob? » 2014-11-13 07:03:09

When commands in a menu or something like cron get tangled up it sometimes makes things easier to put everything in a script and call the script from cron instead.
In the past I had problems running a gnome-logout from 'at' (a relative of cron) because at was running by itself without my X-cookie (or whatever it was) so X-related things didn't work properly. I don't know if the xmessage issue might be similar?

"Progressive enhancement" was the phrase I think, so javascript (or css) ought to be used to make the user experience more pleasant/fun/convenient. The basic content of the page should be available anyway, if a bit uglier or more troublesome.

"Degrading gracefully" is a goal I've been more interested of late... icon_rolleyes.gif

Find is extremely useful, definitely +1 smile

But... "text in files"? Surely that's a job for 'grep' not 'find' - or does find have some (more) options I don't know about?

#18 Re: CrunchBang Talk » Is CrunchBang a rolling release distro? » 2014-11-03 13:05:11

^I guess you meant: previously tracking stable, so every time a new stable came out you upgraded, now tracking Wheezy, so even when Jessie is released you'll stay with Wheezy. smile

#19 Re: CrunchBang Talk » Is CrunchBang a rolling release distro? » 2014-11-03 00:17:32

^just to add to josephg's comment: CrunchBang Waldorf is based on Debian Wheezy.
There is no CrunchBang for Debian Testing (Jessie atm) or Unstable (Sid), so while Debian can be used in a way that resembles a "rolling release", CrunchBang is definitely not.

When Jessie becomes Stable then probably CrunchBang Janice will be released based on it.

#20 Re: Help & Support (Stable) » mplayer2 icon on tint2 » 2014-11-01 03:52:20

Nili, if you feel you'd rather spend your efforts on something less trivial than an icon then fair enough!

However it seemed strange that your system can't install libgd2-xpm version >= 2.0.36~rc1~dfsg, because that's available in the main repository for both Wheezy and Squeeze: … libgd2-xpm

...but I just thought - are you running Jessie or Sid? The package seems to have changed there, and the deb is perhaps too old... neutral

#22 Re: CrunchBang Talk » config files in Crunchbang » 2014-10-31 03:25:39

If you use compositing you might want to tweak ~/.config/compton.conf

Others that sometimes come up: (all in ~/)
.Xdefaults and/or .Xresources

and adding
gives you some more tweaks

None of these are necessary to edit, but if you have some free time and google a bit you might find something interesting.

#23 Re: Help & Support (Stable) » mplayer2 icon on tint2 » 2014-10-31 03:14:11

Nili, try the .deb file which Ohnonot linked to, it's a version or two older but it's working fine for me on #! Waldorf. Just right-click the file and choose gdebi to open it.

Choose the amd64 or i386 .deb file, depending on your machine.

#24 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » Change Your Application's (ugly) Taskbar Icon Programmatically! » 2014-10-30 02:39:14

Hi ohnonot, I've been playing around with this a bit, and googling a bit. Can I make a couple of comments/suggestions? I've only used this with dillo so far, so forgive me if there are major snags in other situations.

1) Getting the PID of the app. The wrapper script has it in $!, which is 100% reliable while $(pidof "$APP" | awk '{print $1}') may not be in all cases. The wrapper could pass the PID to seticon as an argument.


/usr/bin/subl "$@" &
sleep 1
seticon "sublime_text" "$icon" "$PID"

2) This is incompatible with 1) unfortunately, but if you keep the main app at the end of the script, and fork off the icon-setting in a subshell with sleep, then you can launch command with exec. This means fewer processes remain, and in particular the wrapper script with the same name as command disappears, simplifying searching for ids.


(sleep 1;seticon "sublime_text" "$icon") &
exec /usr/bin/subl "$@"

3) After looking here I checked xdotool and it will give you a list of window ids matching a given name. You can use xseticon on each of those with a simple for loop, which seems to accomplish the same thing as the seticon script with rather less code. Timewise, as someone on that page mentioned, it may actually be slower but with a sleep of 1s, an extra 50ms might not matter too much.

for i in $(xdotool search --name $name);do xseticon -id $i "$icon";done

4) Unfortunately, not all apps report their PID to the window manager, as I found with dillo. (That was why seticon broke on line 35.) It might be better to give up on checking PIDs altogether, and just use names or classes to pin the app windows down?
