Re: Crontab and xidle

Oh I see, then I misunderstood you. Thanks for clarifying, I'll give the autostart option a try.

Okay, video players reporting to X would explain it, because its not the same as xprintidle which I've played around with a bit. xprintidle only seem to check for keyboard and mouse input it seems.

Re: Crontab and xidle

Hm, that might be a bit to messy solution. It would be much better if it would just run in the background, but I do thank you for your input. Think I have to come up with some other solution. Unsure if xidle only checks the cpu usage, or if it takes other factors into account as well. Perhaps compar...

Re: Crontab and xidle

Thank you rene for explaining.

What would be a better way of setting it up in that case?
Basically, I want to run my bash script every minute, check if xidle is running, and if its not, the bash script will start it.

Crontab and xidle

Hi

I'm trying to launch xidle from a bash script with crontab, but it will not start even if I only have the xidle command in the script.
Does anyone know what the reason may be for why xidle can not run in crontab?

Re: Latest update of Thunderbird

kyphi;
Task bar = panel, may be I should drop the windows terminology :)
Tabs = individual pages or documents contained in the program, as with in any modern web-browser.

Re: Latest update of Thunderbird

kyphi; Thanks for the reply. Okay, well, I'd rather not remove any old emails, even it it would improve or even solve the problem :/ I've tied Claws just briefly, although it seems fast and clean it still lacks the support for tabs. It sucks to have the task-bar propagated with 15 windows just becau...

Re: Latest update of Thunderbird

Strange. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Thunderbird, but still same results. Starting without addons and in safe mode makes no difference. Oh well, I'll just have to learn to live with the crappynes :/ Cant understand why no other client has implemented tabs, its so dang useful when dealin...

Latest update of Thunderbird

Hi I'm wondering, is anyone else having issues after the 60.2.1 update of Thunderbird? Since its updated, Thunderbird has become dreadfully slow or can even stop responding completely. Been looking to switch client, but can't find any other which has tabs for emails. If anyone knows of a client that...

Re: tmpfs

Thanks for your reply gm10 ! interesting reading,

I was unaware of ramfs, only thought there was tmpfs.
Cold boot attack aside, after reading about ramfs, I think it would be better suited.

tmpfs

Hi I'm wondering regarding creating a tmpfs drive, if anyone has a clue here.. If I were to make a 1mb ram-drive, with a 1mb file, and remove it, is it possible by any means to recover it? If that is the case, if I overwrite the whole area with 1mb new data, would this overwrite the same parts of ra...

LMDE 3

Hi

I just read the post about LMDE 3. Besides possibly being a viable option if Ubuntu would no longer be developed, would there be any advantages to running this version if/when finished in terms of stability, security, speed etc?

Firefox updates - empty changelogs

Hi

Just a general question, if anyone has a clue:
I've noticed that whenever Firefox has an update, the changelog is always empty (No changelog available). How come?

Nope, none.

xset m

Heyy I just re-installed a fresh Mint 18.3, and I'm trying to change the mouse speed as I've done on my previous installation with xset m 5 1 although nothing is happening. Has something changed? The pointer used to go flying of if the value was to high, but no matter if I set it to 5 or 1000 its st...

I'll just have to sit back and relax until there's a new kernel update then, and hope its been fixed.

Thanks again for clarifying !

Re: [SOLVED] Intel-microcode

Just a quick follow up here;

How does updating the microcode relate to the Spectre bug? Will it solve the issue, or are there any further steps that needs to be taken?
