Re: Ideas for Janice

^ Ah, so it's the ones where an executable is passed to the terminal session.  Perhaps it's a default shell thing?

Haven't tested it yet (just got caught up on some sleep, first time I felt rested in a couple weeks), but maybe pass to a shell script (placed in ~/bin from /etc/skel/)?

#!/bin/bash
x-terminal-emulator -e "$1"

Re: Ideas for Janice

^ Yes, exactly. Or a bit more radically (for the example of man only):

x-terminal-emulator -e man -P less man

Strange but true smile Usually less is the pager anyway (you can set it to more, most, less or even certain text browsers), but some systems show nothing when asked for echo $PAGER, so setting it explicitly to PAGER=/usr/bin/less should already be okay. If the environment variable is not read (because of whatever reasons), it shall be passed to man using the -P option.

However, -e in x-terminal-emulator does not use the double quotes ("), so replacing the terminator entries in menu.xml require really a little bit more than just replacing terminator with x-terminal-emulator.

There are, IIRC, no other terminal applications opened from within the Openbox menu, only manpages. Been a while when I last used a default #!

Re: Ideas for Janice

Re: Ideas for Janice

Curiouser and curiouser.  I just tried both `x-terminal-emulator -e "man conky"` and `xterm -e "man conky"` in gmrun (on a fresh install with Terminator as x-terminal-emulator); both work.  So again, I'm thinking default shell executed by Openbox.

Re: Ideas for Janice

x-terminal-emulator -e man conky "$@" <---- the greatly shortened version. This lets me ditch all the excess scripts.

Re: Ideas for Janice

^ hmmm, great idea, would make the installed system 56K smaller.... but, they are part of gnu's coreutils package, you could experiment and remove the package from your installed system (if APT allows you) and gain even more space wink

Re: Ideas for Janice

Any chance of Nginx being the default webserver (as part of the cb-welcome script) instead of Apache2?  Seems like it would be the best alternative, nice and lightweight, but still full featured.

Re: Ideas for Janice

^ This is a good point.  In VLC this can be set via preferences (there's a checkbox for "allow only one instance"); I'm guessing other distros have a modified .config/vlc/vlcrc in /etc/skel with this set to true.
