Nice! Any resources you used besides the usual (Arch wiki, man pages?)? I would like to do the same soon smile

The man page on systemd.service (most interesting key: Type=) and some wiki references (mostly on how to set up the environment variables for systemd user units). Since I'm still using a .xsession file I'm not relying on dependencies between units which are I think the most complicated part. I'm keeping it this way because it will allow me to get everything working quickly if systemd fails in some way. I also didn't want to give up my wm loop

while true ; do
  COMMAND=$(dmenu -i -p 'xsession')
  case "$COMMAND" in
    dwm) systemctl --user start dwm.service ;; # oneshot
    logout) break ;;
    *) "$COMMAND" ;;
  esac
  if [[ $? -ne 0 ]] ; then echo "$COMMAND exited with status: $?" ; fi
done

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

There is not a single perfect reference management application for Linux.

I have tested Mendeley, Docear, JabRef, Kbibtex, Zotero. As it is now, I am going to use Citavi (paid for by my university) on a Windows VM. It's pretty much all I want. EndNote is out of the question due to rampant data loss problems).

Does somebody have a recommendation for other BibTeX-compatible reference management software which runs natively on Linux he has had good experiences with? Free of charge is not a requirement: professional-grade programs please smile

Still curious if there is something for Linux.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

^I use LaTeX a lot (physicist, researcher), and after lot of wandering around I settled for JabRef. It is 'polished' enough to be used (with TexMaker, for example). It takes some time to set it up, and to get used to it.

However, I wouldn't call it yet professional-grade. and it is written in Java.

There are relatively better things.

I have read all those 'surveys', comparisons, compilations with elatives in their headlines, and I'm tired of them.  Most of the open source projects are half-assed in terms of features (no blaming), full of usability issues or simply dead. Cue kbibtex. I'm now asking for opinions from people who are actually using these (and other) programs.

bunsenlabs.org (= the placeholder page) doesn't even have a favicon (and never had) set! Are you using firefox? That browser does funny things with its cache. Your browser is recalling things from the time that bunsenlabs.org was a redirect to the Crunchbang forums...

I'm using Chrome. I did try a full, cache clearing page refresh, but the #! favicon persists. I did think it was probably a leftover from the redirect, though.

Open the inspector (or the Chrome equivalent) and select the network/request profiling tab. It should tell you where it gets the the favicon file from. Definitely not from our server smile

Been there, done that ... and I can definitely relate to your frustration  big_smile

BTW, there is very very nice and usable program called BibDesk, but for MacOS only. As you seem to be a seasoned programmer (are you?), maybe you could port this to Linux? But beware, it might be too much work to do.  ]:D

OTOH, I'm too pi**ed about the fact that there is no almost-professional-quality-grade bibtex references program for Linux.

It's written completely in Objective-C. Unless GNUStep already implements all the classes needed (very unlikely) it'd amount to a full rewrite. The program itself is huge, so I agree: too much work.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

One last good one for today.

Microsoft’s new Services Terms that went in effect on the 1st of August state the technology giant can prevent you from playing counterfeit games or use unauthorized hardware. The terms are valid for everyone using Microsoft services such as Office 365, Outlook.com, Xbox Live, Skype, OneDrive, Bing and MSN. Also software using a Microsoft account is covered by the terms meaning the terms also affect most Windows 10 users. Although Microsoft’s latest OS can be used without a Microsoft account the majority of users will nevertheless use it with an account from the Redmond company.

Source.

Let me affix my monocle and get my wine and tinfoil hat; software is drama!

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

Backed-up and upgraded to Debian Stretch for two packages that I wanted but didn't need. Got greedy, upgraded to sid and somehow managed to balls it all up. Thankfully there was the backup. Learned how to backport packages. Backported the two packages and now I have a lovely stable Debian Jessie plus the packages I wanted to upgrade for.

I'd say that's more accurately described as the excuse.

I'll fix that for them. "The rules are actually motivated by a desire to ensure that devices operated within the US (and elsewhere) can be easily back doored by the NSA and other nefarious characters".

I really recommend to try the latest Firefox Nightly builds. They are lightning fast when compared to the current release, ESR and beta versions. You get to use GTK3 and Electrolysis (multi-process Firefox).
