#1 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » nm-applet not loading on startup » 2014-09-14 07:17:13

You're right when you say that it's not in autostart by default. nm-applet is started by another "autostart", according to this snippet:

Note*: some programs, such as 'nm-applet' are run via XDG autostart.
## Run '/usr/lib/openbox/openbox-xdg-autostart --list' to list any
## XDG autostarted programs.

I checked to see if it's in there, and it is.

Networking still works, yes. I can't make a connection to a new network if nm-applet isn't manually started, but my laptop will connect to networks it already has the key of. If I do start nm-applet manually by using the terminal, I can see the icon in the system tray until I close it again. It will remember an active connection and not disconnect me from it.

I haven't tried your option yet, but I will. But even if it works - though I'm sure it will - I find it strange that I haven't had this issue before.

Well, no. What's strange is that it used to work well. When I re-installed #! on the same laptop, the problem suddenly occured.

When I boot into #!, the nm-applet is not loaded. I have to manually start it before the network icon appears in tint2. I cannot access new networks if the applet isn't loaded, but existing connections aren't lost. I ran openbox-xdg-autostart --list to see if nm-applet is still in there, and it is. What could be wrong here?

#4 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Adobe AIR 2.6 on Waldorf » 2014-03-11 22:33:59

Sorry for the late response. No, I didn't run another terminal at all. I did try several times to work with dpkg, sometimes several times in a row in one terminal session but I doubt that would raise an issue.

#5 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » tilt2 confi help- trying to invert sys tray » 2014-02-14 19:35:37

Concerning your first question, look up panel_items. You have probably set it to TSC. Change that to SCT, or anything else as long as you set S (and C) first. Check the official tint2 site for more info.

#6 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Adobe AIR 2.6 on Waldorf » 2014-02-14 15:44:12

Update and bump. I used this line:

sudo getlibs -l libhal-storage.so.1

and tried to give it another go, but to no avail. I obviously didn't know what I was doing since I don't have a very good idea of what libhal does in the first place. But I'm running out of ideas on how to get Air to work.

For the life of me I cannot find the correct way to succesfully install Adobe AIR 2.6 on Waldorf. I need this piece of (let's remain civil) unpopular software in order to use the 7Digital download manager. The threads here on the !# forum didn't help, as none other do that I searched for on other sites. However, there is one recent tutorial on how to install Adobe AIR which can be found here.

Somewhere in the middle, the following lines are given:

sudo getlibs -l libhal-storage.so.1
sudo getlibs -l libgnome-keyring.so.0.1.1

After trying them the first time, I got an error message which I solved by entering this line in the terminal as suggested by the ia32-libs package description:

dpkg --add-architecture i386

But now I get another error message, right at "getlibbing" libhal-storage.so.1. I run a Dutch translation of !#, so here's my own translation which might - and will - differ from what anyone else gets:

E: Could not get lock (/var/lib/dpkg/). Is this in use by another process?
No match for libhal-storage.so.1
No packages to install

Surely I am overlooking things, but what?

For reference purposes, here are some other Adobe AIR installation help threads on the !# forum.

- Adobe Air with !# 64 bit.

Why? I don't need it. smile The HD 4000 doesn't hold me back. My advise to RemuN is to really think the video card over. Also, you don't really need an i7 imho. The i5 is good enough. And anything over 1600 MHz of RAM doesn't make a difference unless you want to show your specs off using benchmarks.

Use the money instead to buy an SSD. That will make the biggest difference performance wise. Lap or delid your cpu to drop the temperatures, so you can overclock if necessary.

Lastly, should I just wait until the first steamboxes are released, and base my purchase on that?

The Xi3 uses the AMD HD 7660G. I don't know how it compares to other GPU's, but it might give you a point of reference from where you can start building your own system.

Keep in mind I don't care about playing games with the highest settings, I just want them to run smoothly.

The Ivy Bridge i5 on board GPU (HD 4000) works well enough for me. For reference purposes; my system beats most others I've heard from with Minecraft. 60+ FPS is not uncommon, while playing the game in the highest settings. Sure, it's a pixelated game but still it requires some GPU juice.

Haswell's HD Graphics 5200 (GT3) supposedly does its trick pretty nicely.

For those who are interested in gaming; Orbitor looks great and supposedly has an awesome soundtrack. It's only a candidate for Steam right now but with a little love and help from the community the full game will become available in the near future.

Back to basic, preparing the desktop for some astronomy related things. I'd like to get my hands on a decent lua script that takes info from heavens-above.com. So far I haven't found any, so this should turn into a fun little project. (Little...) I found the tint2 script somewhere and tweaked it a little to better suit my needs.

Managed to get some weather data from NOAA. Should be pretty straight forward, but it took me a few attempts. I guess it doesn't hurt to RTFM before trying. big_smile

loco.png

Temperature$alignr${weather http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/observations/metar/stations/ XXXX temperature 60 interval_in_minutes}${iconv_start UTF-8 ISO_8859-1}°${iconv_stop}C

Humidity$alignr${weather http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/observations/metar/stations/ XXXX humidity 60 interval_in_minutes}%

In case one wants to copy, mind my temperature unit which is Celsius. You might want to change the C into F.

Regarding sensors output, am I right to assume that a new kernel might give more info as it might have better support for my mobo?

Edit: Updated file location.

Sent an e-mail to Asus, asking them about the lack of information I get from sensors. Needless to say, they don't support Linux.

We do not support Linux.
Issues within this operating system is not supported.

This mainboard comes with a lot of tools but they only support Windows.
Unfortunately this is not available for Linux.

According to the "Virtual Device", this is actually virtual and not a real device.

@Sector11: Thanks for the links. I'll see what I can take from the ArchWiki. I stumbled upon the first link myself as well. /proc/acpi only contains wakeup. And the only lines added to /etc/modules are coretemp and lm75. I think LM75 is a thermometer, but I haven't found out which temperature(s) it measures.

@slyr114: Use these objects for alignment:

alignment (top_left top_middle top_right etc)
gap_x (integer)
gap_y (integer)

Use these for size:

minimum_size (integer Y) (integer X)
