Re: Privacy related Firefox/Weasel settings/addons

I don't have flash onboard anymore. html5 is finally spreading and the browsers can handle it. A real relief. If I need flash, i used it recently, I use a virtual machine for it with barely nothing but a browser with all but the essential services disabled (no ssh, no java, no samba, no personal dat...

Re: [SOLVED] Today's update causing problems (Firefox)

I find it ok living in /opt besides coming from the repos. /opt is intended for the stuff you install from other sources or compiled by yourself. The same way I like a /opt/bin instead of using /bin or /local/bin for the scripts I add (or collect) myself. It's a matter of taste or organization. I to...

Re: Disable systemd binary logs

Really? I didn't even bothered to check the logs due to that "feature". That's great info. Thanks for sharing, kurotsugi.

Disable systemd binary logs

A traditional method of sorting out and tracking problems in a system is/was checking the logs. Tedious, but useful. This is not longer a fully usable option since systemd stores its logs in non-human readable binary formats, with the added drawback that systemd is no longer an init system. Instead,...

Re: Howto mimic ChromeOS in a Linux system

Sorry for the delay. dbus and phonon got me busy for a couple of days... Here we go. NOTE: These instructions are assuming an Xfce desktop, but they can be easily adapted to any DE or WM. Install chromium (or chrome – no need for Chrome, Chromium does the same job without (most of) the closed source...

Re: Make Phonon to forget about pulseaudio

I guessed so, but didn't knew how to do it.

I have to say I'm only partially happy with this solution. Regular apps seem to behave as expect...

Make Phonon to forget about pulseaudio

Coming from here. If you don't use pulseaudio, specially if using jack, you might be interested in this. Originally I had the intention to title this topic as “Please, Phonon. Leave me alone!” if you know why, this is for you. Since I purged pulseaudio and configured my system to use alsa and jack ...

Re: Dealing with the nasty session D-Bus connection "bug"

Thanks, grizzler, Good to know an alternative method too. Nevertheless, the init.d way is init system agnostic. This other method is systemd exclusive. Of course it applies to SolydXK (though systemd is not an init system anymore). .xsession-errors fills up with all kinds of useless messages anyway ...

Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

Folks, bad times for rolling. Re-read the posts above starting on aug 1st. Two major changes going on in Debian. KDE is one of them fully transitioning to KF5, Plasma5 and Qt5. Better freeze and give it time to complete.

Dealing with the nasty session D-Bus connection "bug"

This "bug" has been hitting KDE users for quite some time typically affecting Kate and Klipper amongst other apps. The KDE developers blame Qt and say that it should be harmless. I didn't bothered to check what the Qt devs say about it. In any case, this problem has being around for a long while. I ...

Re: Howto mimic ChromeOS in a Linux system

No need for chromixium. You can do exactly the same with any xfce or lxde environment without much hassle. Chromixium just tries to emulate the ChromeOS visuals and cosmetics, but what's cool about that? And it's Ubuntu. Better stick to Debian. The real benefit of using this setup over Linux, is tha...

Re: [TUT] how to add dsp in linux (by using JACK)

It depends on the apps. Players use to have choices to use pulse, alsa or jack directly, like VLC, SMPlayer, etc... Regular apps will use whatever is the system default. Some crap only uses pulse. Also with jack you can use ladish front ends like Patchage or Claudia to make and arrange the connectio...

Don't know haw much you are concerned about "bloat" and how much python3 you have onboard if any. I know many people hate it. If you have python3 installed try this. https://github.com/falkTX/Cadence/blob/master/INSTALL.md Will solve anything audio. For me it's a must have. Never use pulse, but can ...

Re: [TUT] enabling crossfeed effect globally by using bs2b

One more thing, this kind of complex tools can do as much harm a good. As in most plugins it's a good idea starting checking the included presets and check the settings what the different tools can do. many of them are just terrible and non useable, but good to learn what not to do either. Be always...
