Thanks for the replies. I'll look into both of them, though I'd prefer something in Portage, like gmrun

Dmenu with lsx, see config.arg.h in dwm for an example (It's binded to MODKEY+P in the config).
Works great for me. Doubt lsx is in portage.

Honestly, I'm thinking of working on dwm to build-in a run menu. Not quite dmenu, but more like a small entry menu that equats to xterm -e $COMMAND.

Don't think it would take more then a few lines of code.

anyone know of an F/OSS replacement for "Lexware Financial Office"?

it's the only thing that keeps my mom's computer from switching to linux... it's some sort of accounting software (guess they only sell that in germany, it's shite anyway), she only needs it to write a few hundred invoices a month, nothing too tragic. basically just needs to produce a list of items, sum stuff up, calculate 19% of that and have a modifiable template for printout...

I'm looking for a replacement for Microsoft Visio, to draw network topologies and pretty much everything Visio does. Thanks :)

I would use inkscape, it has much more features.

Take screenshots in fluxbox with the printscreen button on your keyboard...

Place this line in your ~/.fluxbox/keys file

Code:

None F15 :execCommand import -w root ~/`date +%Y%m%d%H%M`.png


You'll find the new PNG with a timestamp as the filename in your home directory.

How to make mouse thumb buttons work in epiphany:
Type about:config in address bar and press [Enter].
Change value of
mousewheel.horizscroll.withnokey.action
to
2
and change value of
mousewheel.horizscroll.withnokey.sysnumlines
to
false
Now if anyone knows if epiphany can do livebookmarks let me know ;)

Hi,

I hate typing /etc/init.d/... over and over, so I added this to my /root/.bashrc:

Code:
for service in `cd /etc/init.d/; ls`
do
    alias "rc${service}"="/etc/init.d/${service}"
done

Best tip... Ever.

A mate gave me this:
Code:
srv () {
    local s=$1;
    shift;
    /etc/init.d/"$s" "$@"
}
..which i find easier (eg srv mysql restart).

I need a windows (i know, but it's not for me) compatible bar code reader. perferably something Open Source, and that can export date to a database backend.

eix is a small utility that searches ebuilds (showing you a very similar output to 'emerge -s', but better) instantly, as opposed to the 30 seconds that it now takes portage. It's a blessing - a shame that it can't calculate dependencies when emerging for real though.

A new one:

dtach

Mix this with screen (it doesn't play well with screen using it to startup a program, but...), and you've got a rather handy little setup. You can connect a dtach session to multiple terminals, so you might could load them into a screen session, detach it, then attach the same dtach programs to another term, so when you drop out of X, you can go right into a screen session w/o a problem.

Havn't tested it, but it might be worth a shot for people who switch alot.

Some threads should never die.

Ahem, I'm looking for an app similar to Conky to run in an xterm. I currently use htop, but I would like something a little more informative and a little more versitile.

Mainly, I want to keep up with CPU load, RAM usage, Networking usage, what ports are in use, and thats about it.

How about conky? You just need to (re)compile it with:

Code:
--disable-double-buffer --disable-x11 --disable-xdamage


Works in the dwm status bar too.

Well, I would, but I do run Conky on the desktop as well. I'll see if I can get it to do both...

Edit: One really ugly solution was to run it in its own window, but not quite what I had in mind...

request:

the all around best linux ap that is like itunes or winamp that is gtk based (i don't want amarok); primarily the itunes app that can manage ipods (im trying to get more people to use linux) and they all ask if itunes runs on linux. I use audacious and have never tried bmp primarily because of its state in portage. I used to use xmms but i just want to know what else is out there.

also - i need to know why gstreamer is worthwhile ive never understood why gstreamer is such a big deal with linux multimedia and since i get picky about whats installed on my linux comp i usually never install something that uses it.

If I want to make a full backup some directory, I use this wrapper, to add date to tar file.

This is the script:
Code:
#!/bin/sh

if test $# -ne 1;then
        echo "Usage: tarball dir|file"
        exit 1
fi

if test -e $1 && false;then
        echo "No such file: $1"
        exit 1
fi

tar czfv $(basename $1)-20080130.tar.gz $1


Today a Windows user mailed me a zip archive with lots of files. When I unzipped it, all the files were in the current directory, instead of a new directory with archive contents. This is pretty irritating. You don't know, which file was in the current directory and which came from the archive. This is how to clean it up.
Code:
unzip archive.zip
[get lots of files in current dir]
mkdir archive
mv archive.zip archive
cd archive
unzip archive.zip
# This loop cleans up the parent directory:
for FILE_OR_DIR in $(ls); do rm -fr ../$FILE_OR_DIR; done
