#1 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » magnet link to script » 2015-02-01 19:50:21

I got this to work using this method Magnet Links.  Seems like a fairly slick, non-invasive solution.

I'm trying to associate magnet links with a script.  I used gconftool-2 as per :

 command = /home/eturd/bin/ %s
 needs_terminal = false
 enabled = true

The script does not appear to run.  If I replace the script with "transmission %s" however, transmission fires up.

What could I be missing here?  I've also pointed it to a script that just copies a file but nothing happens sad

test -z $1 && echo "need magnet link!
$0 <magnet link>" && exit -1

SESSID=$(curl --silent --anyauth --user $USER:$PASS "http://$HOST:$PORT/transmission/rpc" | sed 's/.*<code>//g;s/<\/code>.*//g')

curl --silent --anyauth --user $USER:$PASS --header "$SESSID" "http://$HOST:$PORT/transmission/rpc" -d "{\"method\":\"torrent-add\",\"arguments\":{\"paused\":${PAUSED},\"filename\":\"${LINK}\"}}"

@hhh That's so interesting.  You are absolutely correct, there is a 'move to trash' option right above the delete.  Why is it that I had not noticed that?!?  I guess we are simply creatures of habit eh.


#4 Re: Help & Support (Testing/Unstable) » Thunar 1.6.3 Trash Bug? » 2015-01-07 02:00:18

It would appear that deleting things via the context menu (ie. via the mouse menu) does not put things in the trash whereas using the delete key does.

Mystery solved.  Maybe that's a feature, looking at the dialog for delete, it says it will be permanently lost.

#5 Re: Help & Support (Testing/Unstable) » Thunar 1.6.3 Trash Bug? » 2015-01-07 01:17:54

Most stuff does not get into trash but occasionally something will be in there.  I can't see any pattern at this stage but I'll keep my eye on it.

Anyone else notice in Jessie that not everything deleted goes in the trash with Thunar 1.6.3?

Just ran into a problem installing the google talk/hangouts plugin.  Appears it has a libc6 >= 2.14 dependency.

Is there some way I can upgrade this?

There is another solution to this problem.  In ~/.fonts.conf remove the following section :

 <match target="font">
  <edit mode="assign" name="rgba" >

#11 Re: Help & Support (Testing/Unstable) » Unknown IPP tag error » 2013-02-07 17:22:16

So.  Compiling and installing 1.6.1 was a bad idea.  Now cupsd won't start.  Can't seem to uninstall 1.6.1 either.  This may not be worth untangling.  Fresh install and I'll see what the printer status is after that.

#12 Re: Help & Support (Testing/Unstable) » Unknown IPP tag error » 2013-02-07 17:00:04

Thanks for the reply.

No jobs in the queue.

Uninstalled and re installed printer driver with no success.

My cups version is 1.5.3 and the latest is 1.6.1   Could this be the issue?

I am suddenly getting this error with my Dell 3103cn printer.

Option 'printer-resolution' has value '(unknown IPP tag)'  and cannot be edited.

I saw the previous posting on this from 2012 and was wondering if I should report this somewhere?  I tried to install python-cups from ubuntu but there were some dependencies that I need to install first so I haven't tried this solution yet.


#14 Re: Help & Support (Testing/Unstable) » Inkscape » 2013-01-24 02:47:28

OK. So, I can't recall what the dependency was so I tried to install from sources.  Ran into a bunch of stuff I needed to install first (freetype, libgc.....) but didn't get finished installing everything it was asking for.  Just tried to apt-get install it and it worked!  Go figure.  Either way, I'm happy.

Thanks ^_^

Is there a way to install inkscape.  There seems to be some dependency issues.

I've run into a snag compiling minidlna.

I've installed everything it's looking for during the make process except :


libsqlite3 wants libsqlite3-0 3.7.3-1

the one currently installed is 3.7.13-1

I was going to remove the newer version but tons of stuff already depends on it.

Is there any way to work around this?

#17 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » fstab not mount nfs » 2012-10-29 04:12:51

Thanks.  That solved the problem.

On a non related note, is there some way to autostart an application as a user (not as root)?

#18 Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » fstab not mount nfs » 2012-10-28 19:52:35

Replies: 4

This is making me insane.

Here's one of my fstab entries :  /mnt/mediatomb    nfs rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr

On boot none of my nfs shares will mount.

If I issue :

sudo mount -a

Everything mounts just fine.

I have no idea what is going on here.  At one point I thought it was peerguardian but that no longer seems to be the case as far as I can tell.

Any help would be appreciated.

So what's the deal with these TDP's?  Some things I like to install are listed this way in Waldorf.  Is there some way to actually install these packages?

#21 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [Solved] Odd fstab problem » 2012-07-19 13:52:18

Thanks for the suggestion DIe-Hard.  I switched over to NFS only to discover that I was experiencing exactly the same problem. 

I noticed that if I pinged that machine from #!, it was unreachable but if I did it directly from the router there was no problem. 

Turns out it was peerguardian.  I used to run moblock all the time but peerguardian has taken over that job in the new install.  It also sets up as cleared for traffic but not  That simple change solved the problem.

I still don't understand why I was able to access my mediabox eventually with that peerguardian setup.

#22 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [Solved] Odd fstab problem » 2012-07-18 22:28:34

So, it has nothing to do with fstab.  Turns out that my network place ( //mediabox ) is not visible to the system at boot.  A couple of minutes after boot it will show up.  Must have something to do with acquiring network names but I'm at a loss to think of what to do from here.  Any help would be appreciated.

I just re installed the latest stable #! and have run into an issue with my fstab.  I have a 2nd #! box that I'm using as a media server but it doesn't mount at boot using the fstab.  If I issue a "mount -a" however, it mounts fine.

My simple fstab line is :

//mediabox/tomb    /mnt/mediatomb        cifs    username=uname,password=xxxx,rw,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0

If I mount it from the command line with :

sudo mount //mediabox/tomb    /mnt/mediatomb

It asks me to enter my password twice which I don't remember it doing before the reinstall.

Anyone have any thoughts?

I installed ubuntu server on a machine I had.  Plugged in a drive that was booted #! so that I could copy some data off it.  I was unable to mount the #! drive, try as I might.  I tried to boot the #! drive on its own and now I get the "grub rescue>" prompt.  Seems the drive now thinks it's a LVM2 drive.  I can't get it to mount using any of the LVM tools because it complains there are no logical drives.  Is there any way of getting data of this drive or is it borked?


#25 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Lua and Cairo » 2011-11-27 14:44:21

Conky 1.8.0 and I have both Lua binding listed.  Basic Lua scripts will run but none of the funky stuff you can do with cairo.  Running the lua scripts from the command line produces the error listed and it seems to be choking on the 'require cairo' statement.
