perhaps an old bug who know? i should read aswell the whole thread.

Really, you only read the solution at the end of the thread? Come on dude, its only 2 pages. I'd suggest you read it. It helps put the fuck up that rxvt is in perspective. Enjoy!
Edit: I'm glad it worked and you got it all sorted ...

Hi all. Just thought I'd let you know that most of us over at LinuxBBQ have dist-upgraded with no ill effects. That of course does not mean to blindly go upgrade. If you notice anything unusual, like a crap load of packages set to be removed, then best wait. I waited till just about a few days ago. Good Luck!

 Release    LinuxBBQ Victory
 OS           Debian GNU/Linux stretch/sid
 Kernel      Linux 4.1.0-1-586 i686

#4 Re: Help & Support (Other) » [es ist gelöst] Any GTK theme gurus? » 2015-04-05 11:52:46

I do not use, have, or know too much around GTK3, but is it possible that you also need to edit the GTK2 theme? It is always interesting to see the different ways that users solve their tasks. Generally if you are in vim, and you want too search and replace in one fell swoop

vim filetoedit
:%s /oldvalue/newvalue/g

Good Luck

You may find you can blow away dbus too. Unless you use dunst, then its required. But there are creative alternatives to that too. Or maybe that tint2 thing needs it, not sure?

Thank you dkeg, To tell the truth i can't get rid dbus easily, I tried once or twice i always ended up in more issue on #! so i let it, however i am using a stop/start trick to not have present all the time. If i start with startx without dbus running you know i can't have sound (pulse/alsa), network manager (wicd-gtk) also perhaps many other things. So i just start dbus when i need a daemon to run in background, pulse or alsa would like dbus running all time, but i launch daemon(s) only when i want to.

Didn't know about dunst, i will check for sure, so thanks for telling me smile

P.S. i have read dbus can get rid off and make things working without it, sincerely up here'm not ready :8 , reading wish to do something in future. My tint2 works pretty normally without dbus running.


quoting as i know the page break is ready to happen.

fair enough. I don't use any of that. Must be the pulse, b/c alsa is fine here. How about ceni for network?
I started with a minimal base install and had only added dbus and dbus-x11 for dunst, but don't use it anymore, so got rid of it. Oddly enough even programs that would kick it off don't require it. So maybe you're looking at it backward. Start with nothing, add only what you need. I don't know your requirements, just throwing it out there.

Hey dkeg long time no see! big_smile

That looks really nice. Kind of like vintage paper.

Thanks chilli and hhh.

hhh, actually not conky, but a script piped to Lemon Boy's BAR. But yes, compton for the shadows.

great.  For the sake of completing the circle and to help anyone else looking for help that may come across this thread ...

     1. Share what helped to get it working

You'll need to chown you're /var/www directory.

sudo chown -R user:user /var/www

#14 Re: WM/DE Talk » The great #! forums i3 thread » 2014-04-05 00:06:40

@kb, like prat says.  I happen to start most of my stuff directly from .xinitrc, like wall, compton, bar, etc.  So whichever wm I choose, the stuff I need starts with no other configuring.

#17 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Switching from Ceni to NetworkManager causes problems » 2014-02-22 12:50:23

I would think running two network managers concurrently spells nothing but problems.  The real question here should be how to completely replace network manager with ceni. 

This may help

#18 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [solved] dpms pwr off not working » 2014-02-09 14:02:46

Hmm, interesting.  I use compton and do not have that issue, nor have not seen that mentioned at all elsewhere. More than likely it's an issue with a setting within, rather than compton itself.  Actually, I'd bet on it.

#19 Re: CrunchBang Talk » Making a fast, text-editor only boot..? » 2014-02-09 13:55:01

wow MB, and all I was going to suggest was in tty[n]

mkdir thoughts
cd thoughts
vi todays_thought
i ... for insert mode
today's thought is so special I need to document it
:wq ... save and quit

but obviously your solution if way more kick ass (except for the nano part)

#20 Re: Help & Support (Testing/Unstable) » [SOLVED]Someone is eating up my memory (it was locate) » 2014-02-09 13:31:06

was also going to suggest youtube-dl. 

And how about the watch command. 

... watch 'ps -aux | grep iceweasel'

is just an idea.  I'm sure there are better uses out there or in man watch.

That's a real fine looking smooth gray scrot you got there. 

58M ram in X.   Not bad.   Great stuff GP.

#22 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » I want to share my "localhost" (htdocs) to the web. » 2014-02-04 13:15:31

Few things here. 

First off is there is really no need for apache for the purpose of testing locally.  I am assuming you are using php.  PHP has a built in server.  Find documentation here.  Now that you know this, purge apache, unless of course you're using you local machine as your own web server, which you're probably not and is not a good idea anyway. 

For your web presence simply think of a domain name for your site, purchase it, then find a host.  Namecheap is good for domain names, plenty of options for hosting.   My recommendation is this free solution.

There will be instructions with the hosting company on how to get things configured, eg, matching domain name with host.

The final piece will be to upload your content via FTP to your host.  They will give you the necessary information to connect.  URL, user, pass, etc.  Filezilla works well.   Should be available in the repos.  Could also use a web solution in FF/Iceweasel - FireFTP.

Then go to your new URL and be happy.

Security - well always a concern.  But if your site is static then no worries.  Its generally when you're storing / pulling database information, registering users, forums, commenting, etc that opens you up to attacks.  It doesn't sound like that's what your doing.  Sounds like you just want a simple web presence. 

Hope that's helpful.  Good Luck.

#23 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [solved] dpms pwr off not working » 2014-02-02 13:24:46

I have this in my .xinitrc

xset dpms 300 600 900 &

and as wux said, purge xscreensaver.  Conflict with xscreensaver? Installed in that Arch set up?

#24 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » BBQ exploded? » 2014-01-01 21:03:57

remain calm.  We are just fine over there.  Shit happens, and just so happened during an off time, so the delay's may be longer than normally would.
