What's the best way to use zsh/oh-my-zsh with custom sh aliases? Where do you put them? .zshrc seems wrong to me. Any ideas?

Hrm...I've set this up and have turned on the Applications Menu extension. It errors out and then it's impossible to uninstall.. And now the Activities button is gone and won't come back. sad

Nice guide! I'm eating up ~230mb at login but I'm using 64 bit with virtualbox additions.

I've run into an issue with using dd to write the iso to the usb drive in the past. Interestingly enough, it turns out I forgot to unmount the existing partition on the disk first (i.e., /dev/xxxY) prior to using dd to write the image. Remembering this step as well as running sync after dd made everything work correctly.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned oh-my-zsh. I've been using this with zsh for quite some time both on my linux and osx machines.

#11 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » What is the next step. » 2015-05-27 22:36:16

I learned about crypto while studying for security certs (CompTIA Security+, RHCE, and CISSP to touch on the most relevant crypto work I've done). I'd highly recommend using one of those certification exams as a motivator for learning the material you'll be responsible for, and as a result you'll have a much better grasp on crypto and security in general.

#13 Re: Development » FAIL-NOT: Sub-alpha BunsenLabs netinstall » 2015-05-13 07:31:21

@johnraff - Have you come across any mechanism for smartly parsing (for example) dmesg or lspci or something like that and determining exactly what drivers are needed, and avoiding installation of unneeded drivers? That certainly adds some complicated logic to the install procedure but is potentially more elegant. smile

#14 Re: Development » Bunsen-themes.tar.gz » 2015-05-11 07:53:58

Hey @twoion,

Any chance the icon and cursor themes can go in there as well? That would make building a Bunsen clone much easier. smile

Hey guys, one thing I've never understood is why Debian based distros (including vanilla Debian itself) seem to always track release names, i.e. "Wheezy" or "Jessie" or something to that effect.

Why not just track "stable" or "testing" or "unstable" and have it more rolling-release style? I track unstable personally, which I suppose is really not any different than just tracking sid, but for stable it seems to make sense to me to track stable instead of the current stable release.

Hey guys, came across a pretty cool cheat sheet for sysVinit to systemd comparisons. I'll link them here because they may be of use to you guys doing the bunsenlabs dev stuff, not to mention the everyday #! user looking to gracefully upgrade their systems from wheezy to jessie.

#20 Re: Ideas & Suggestions » Pulse or Alsa/Jack in BunsenLabs » 2015-04-08 11:39:23

No issues with Pulse here. In fact, the only issue I've really run into is when I've tried to install certain programs requiring full jack functionality, which seems to break pulse. Other than that, things are good.

#21 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » 1Password - finally! » 2015-03-16 10:34:05

I don't think so. It's just a password manager that syncs up to phones, other computers, and anything dropbox enabled. It's basically a front-end for interpreting a hashed passwd type file on dropbox, so...it obviously requires dropbox. smile Not a perfectly elegant solution but it helps me with remembering my dozens of passwords.

#23 Re: Ideas & Suggestions » Site Re-Naming/Re-Branding » 2015-03-16 08:48:06

Hey guys, I was working on building my own #! inspired distro and already purchased vm/cloud space and began building an infrastructure. I don't have the resources to build ISOs and test them right now (in afghanistan for work for the time being, don't have spare hardware and connectivity sucks). However, I can do admin stuff in my vm very easily.

I'm offering to "donate" my space and pre-setup infrastructure to help with the BL project as long as I can administrate the vm itself. If this is of interest to anyone please pm me. Glad to help.

Hey guys, one of the things I really like about OSX and my iPhone is the 1Password integration. For those of you that use 1Password and want to be able to use it on linux, you're in luck. Seems there is a pretty good method to get this thing working. I'm referencing (and plagiarizing) the work done here with a little OpenBox love at the end.

Essentially, this relies on you having 1Password already set up and integrated with DropBox. It also assumes you have DropBox running on your linux machine and your 1Password folder sync'd.

First get mercurial and necessary dev packages to build

sudo apt-get install mercurial libgtk2.0-dev libxtst-dev

Next find a suitable home. A directory called '1pass' will be created. I am using ~/applications/ in my example, tailor your setup as necessary. Clone to sources and build.

cd ~/applications/
hg clone http://hg.icculus.org/icculus/1pass/
cd 1pass
./build.sh

Next, make a symlink to your DropBox 1Password keychain

mkdir 1Password
ln -s ~/Dropbox/1Password/1Password.agilekeychain/ 1Password/1Password.agilekeychain

Test run

./1pass

Hit Windows/super key - alt - \
You should get a popup prompting you for your 1Password password. If it works, go back to your shell, ctrl-c to cancel out. In your ~/.config/openbox/autostart, go ahead and append

~/applications/1pass/1pass &

And you should be good to go in the future!

#25 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » .deb file editor » 2015-02-09 15:15:27

@johnraff There's a ... kind of messy way to deal with this and maintain permissions. I suppose it all depends on what files you modify/change, maybe it's possible to script file permissions/ownership/etc maintenance as well but I'm not sure how one would do that. Regardless, here's how I've been disassembling .deb files:

mkdir -p debdev/{clean,dirty,}
cp package.deb debdev
cd debdev/dirty
ar p ../package.deb | tar -tzf control.tar.gz
cp -R * ../clean
# edit files, on any modified files, change permissions/ownership to match what's in ../clean/
cp ../package.deb ../newpackage.deb
tar czf control.tar.gz *[!z]
ar r ../newpackage.deb control.tar.gz

I didn't come up with this myself, but for the life of me I can't find the source of this.  roll
