Re: Mastodon

Thing is I never used Twitter and never understood the concept of it, at least not for my personal use. Cool, and I always thought I'm the only person in the world who has no idea what 'twitter' is about - seriously :) Just wanted to make Manu happy, so there I am. At least there's an emacs fronten...

Re: Openbox

^ cool! What if you check like

Code: Select all

 [ -e /run/openrc/started ] 
I suppose (not tested with sysvinit) that only OpenRC writes something there, and clears /run after reboot.

Re: machinebacon

^ ah well, it's getting better and better, of course there are still some rough edges, eg. some processes create zombie buffers, or it's a bit PITA to switch buffers when helm is involved, but else it's really not that bad. OTOH, it's nothing that a tiling WM wouldn't be able to do ;)

Re: machinebacon

^ thanks guys. Totally fell in love with exwm . If you want to build it from ELPA, get xelb and exwm (optionally" exwm-x). For convenience, also grab dmenu from there (it's assigned to M-d and is even more clever than suckless' dmenu, because it knows when to open terminal apps in a terminal). In ~/...

Re: EDC, gadgets and gear stuff

Okay I move these to the Thinkpad section. Got the X60 today and it's excellent. Only 2GB RAM and a 24GB SSD in it, but it boots straight into Emacs without WM. It does already have an Atheros instead of the Broadcom, and Intel onboard gfx, so I can coreboot or libreboot it tonight. So far, it's a j...

Re: Emacs tips and tricks

Just a note to self...

To print the output of a command directly to the point (equivalent to :r !command), for example here the output of all UUID devices:

Code: Select all

C-u M-! blkid -o export | grep -w "UUID"
Record a keyboard macro

Code: Select all

C-x (

Re: Mate, show me your screenshot!

Yeah, good default theme in Ubuntu Mate (actually, I did really install it and I am writing from it now - of course I switched to spectrwm/XFCE4). My theme of choice, if I had one, is Numix Red. It's in the repos of 'Buntu, at least for YY.
