I don't know why, but suddenly font sizes in menus, notifications, and Nemo went down to miniature.
Adding a file /etc/X11/Xresources/xft containing "Xft.dpi: 150" fixed the problem.
GTK - go figure...
I couldn't make the 'Notifications' plugin for deluge work, and I want confirmation that a torrent has been added when I click a magnet link, so instead I configured the 'Execute' plugin to run this script on the 'Torrent Added' event:
#!/bin/sh /usr/bin/notify-send --icon /usr/share/pixmaps/deluge.png --expire-time 2000 'Deluge' "Torrent '$2' added"
So little effort, such reward.
Sometimes it is nice to know when a presence change alert from jabber.el happened, "X is now Online", "X is now Offline" - sure, but when was that?
defadvice to the rescue:
(defadvice jabber-presence-default-message (after add-timestamp-to-message last activate) (when ad-return-value (setq ad-return-value (concat "[" (current-time-string) "] " ad-return-value))))
*Messages* contains information like: "[Wed Aug 5 14:25:02 2015] X is now Offline" - nice!
Or there was some other reason that I forgot.
The latest one was related to OTR: notifications would show the encrypted text, and they would display when I wrote something myself. Not ideal. The author gave some hints, and I finally hacked together a solution - it isn't pretty or the right way, but it works for now.
I have been reporting spam on Gmane by going to the web-interface for years. For years, I tell you, like a savage.
Finally I got my act together and configured Gnus, so I can report spam directly from there.
[Gmane] topic, I added these topic parameters:
((spam-process ((spam spam-use-gmane))) (spam-summary-exit-behavior 'move-none) (spam-use-hashcash nil) (spam-use-crm114 nil))
I am not sure that the last three are needed, but... better safe than sorry.
I upgraded my server to Debian 8 (jessie) tonight.
It went quite smoothly - I had to configure ejabberd again (they've changed the configuration file from Erlang to YAML), and I had to change the names of the files in Apache's sites-enabled/ directory to end in .conf, move the stuff in conf.d/, and switch from mod_gnutls - which is in oldstable and in unstable, but not in stable - to mod_ssl, but that was basically it!
pg_upgradecluster nicely did a dump/restore of my PostgreSQL databases, upgrading from 9.1 to 9.4.
Even rebooting the machine went without a hitch.
Well done, Debian!
... that all Haskell packages had a SYNOPSIS section in the documentation, showing an example of how to use the code.
Like most Perl-modules on CPAN.
That would be really nice for learning both the language and the libraries.Author at Google+ Publisher at Google+
