Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

Gtk 3.20 broke each and every theme again, even the probably most popular/well-maintained ones (Numix, Arc) have not yet caught up yet with the breakage. Bunch of gnomes, literally.

Arc does have 3.20 support: https://github.com/horst3180/arc-theme/ … k-3.0/3.20

Is that not finished?

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

^ I've just updated the gtk-theme-arc-git package and it seems to work.

Release 20160331 had "Lots of fixes for Gnome/GTK 3.20" wink

EDIT: I didn't even notice the 3.20 transition:

[2016-03-31 21:05] [ALPM] upgraded gtk3 (3.18.9-1 -> 3.20.2-1)

Arch rocks!

EDIT2: No, hold on, I remember now -- my Arc theme lost the textbox & button outlines so I had to

cd ~/git/aur/gtk-arc-theme-git && git pull && makepkg -sri

Then open lxappearance, select a different theme then select Arc again and everything was fixed big_smile

Arc-Dark had some bugs in Firefox for me. Arc itself is just too bright.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

anybody know how to use the clipit Exclude feature?
I cannot find documentation anywhere, not even in the package itself.
All it says is "Regex list of items that should not be inserted" but i have no clue if it refers to the item itself (i.e. i should need a string representing the actual password) or its origin (the application it came from)???
it does at least work when i insert the actual password, but i find that nonsensical.

Well considering the magnitude, it's proper earthquakes. The one in Kyushu had a magnitude of 7. I didn't see any pictures yet, but the news say that there were  causalities and a couple of high buildings collapsed; plus there might be aftershocks of a magnitude up to 6 during the next days.

It seems that coverage is now spreading also through international media under the headline "Kumamoto earthquake" (prefecture and capital of the prefecture).

Why not the T420 for ~50$ more and 8G RAM instead of a meagre 2G?

Also, those prices are insane. Even when talking only about refurbished Thinkpads, in Germany you have to double the price and change US$ to €. Then again, if a large retailer is selling them for this price, you might even be able to find a computer for even less...

Personally, I'd prefer the X series over the T series. You also might want to consult this collection about Haswell thinkpad problems, and also check against Thinkwiki.org.

FYI I have a X240 which, like the T420, is part of the first Haswell lineup and the thing only worked properly with 4.0.x kernels or later, and even current kernels and Mesa releases add more power and features, mostly concerning the i915/i965 graphics card drivers for the HD4400 and power management/battery lifetime. So by all means, go straight to Debian unstable or install Siduction or Arch...

Make sure to check the type of  hard disk in there; mine came with a Seagate which is garbage, got it changed twice, still garbage: SMART is impossible to monitor for Seagate stuff and I/O performance is not stellar. Exchange it for a Hitachi/HGST TravelStar if you can.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

^ I agree. Thinkpads are great with Linux, though I recently stumbled upon a rather faulty series. Watch out for the Edge 14 & Edge 15 models with discrete AMD graphics. The heat-sink is absolute junk and doesn't contact the graphics chip's memory modules properly.

In Austria some retailers also sell refurbished Thinkpads, Dells, etc. However, for 200-300 euro one can only get a Core 2 Duo laptop. Wish I stayed in the US for the electronics tongue.

EDIT: Just checked again. Core i5 Dells can also be bought for under 300 euro, though that's still more expensive than in the US.

That's enough reasons not to buy one. I previously owned a x121e which also had AMD graphics; and only was usable using the fglrx driver -- which broke whenever upgrading X. Also, there were horrible bugs, no TTY/kernel mode settings, and random crashes (kernel panics).

Never again.

My X201 is better supported under OpenBSD than GNU/Linux, the developers use ThinkPads themselves.

Ya,  but unless the sirs and ladies are using T420, the hardware support on the BSD side for mobile computation devices is quite insufficient.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

^Nice, thanks!

Great posts on this page, BTW, I love the Peanuts strip.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TyTXbBVaXhA

I traded a brand new Chromebook that was a gift for a refurbished 15" T500 6 months ago (insane prices indead, it was $200 delivered to the store) and was quite worried what the build-quality and noise-level would be in comparison, especially since it's a Lenovo and not an IBM. I've never heard the fan in this thing and it's built like a brick outhouse.

Why not the T420 for ~50$ more and 8G RAM instead of a meager 2G?

The cheaper one can be expanded to 8G. My first desktop had 1G RAM, and I've never needed more for what I do as long as I run XP or Linux. I currently have 2G and it's more than enough. Your, right though, if you need RAM, that's a very cheap add-on.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

Broke my virtual machine completely so I've set up a systemd-nspawn container instead using machinectl(1) to control it.

root@Arch ~ # machinectl list         
MACHINE CLASS     SERVICE       
jessie  container systemd-nspawn

1 machines listed.
root@Arch ~ # machinectl show jessie                      
Name=jessie

Service=systemd-nspawn
Unit=systemd-nspawn@jessie.service
Leader=5739

RootDirectory=/var/lib/machines/jessie

So if I want to run a shell in the container, I can just use:

root@Arch ~ # machinectl login jessie
