is the winner....

I knew I could use xdotool, I just wanted to see if any new or existing fluxbox scripting could be used

Thanks RatMan I knew you would solve this

I use this server on a big screen TV and access it via nomachine.

You mean via ssh?

Looked it up - you mean this?

When I do this it causes fluxbox to lose it's mind and a restart from the menu works to restore order

Just one restart required?

May be best to code a script that restarts fluxbox after the remote access.

Why is a 90 second restart frequency required? Fluxbox loose it's mind every 90 seconds thereabouts?

pkill -x -USR1 fluxbox does not work from terminal so need something else..

Just one restart is needed, yes, until I access the machine again

nomachine is just access over tcpip and the machine itself (the KODI/V-Ger machine stays static always) so I can run a script at anytime .. the ideal setting would be a cron that recognized a nomachine access and restarting fluxbox .. but that seems like over kill when since conky runs all the time I can just set a execpi as a perfect tool with a timer

nomachine is just a headless server tool... All I do is access full gui from one machine to the other.. It is very light and easy to use .. the secondary server is a KODI and the V-Ger server so I access it frequently and just do not want a separate monitor KB and mouse

I see this same behavior from when changing hdmi ports on this machine (or any fluxbox machine) and all that it does is cause tint2 to switch to the top left and windows borders disappear.. a restart of fluxbox fixes it

As far as 90 seconds goes, that is just arbitrary... I really do not care how long it is, 90 seconds is good knowing that when I log into the server with nomachine I can get a cup of coffee and get back to a correct screen

General Support / fluxbox restart mod keys in a script

I am looking for a way to restart fluxbox every 90 seconds... I need to do this because of how I use this server on a big screen TV and access it via nomachine.. When I do this it causes fluxbox to lose it's mind and a restart from the menu works to restore order

I also have created a mod key sequence in ~/.fluxbox/keys file as

Code: [Select]
Mod1 F7 :Restart
and it works fine... I need to now run that key sequence every 90 seconds from a script.. Conky makes the most sense since it runs all the time anyway... doing something like

Code: [Select]
${execpi 90 Mod1 F7 :Restart}
Anyone done this?

@PackRat?

@Jedi?

General Support / Re: Shotwell working for everyone?
« on: September 23, 2017, 02:53:53 AM »
There was recent updates in SID that removed parts if not all of shotwell.. I suggest waiting a few days and reinstall it.. Several other apps were affected as well

Interesting that I never had this issue on none of my machines... Might it be a nVidia only issue? Or possibly something y'all have installed that I do not?

Glad it is coming to an end

I follow the Debian Twitter account and got the announcement there.. Will try to relocate it and find its link

So much continues to change with Debian... Makes me wonder how much longer VSIDO will be Sid or even around

This is an interesting one because Debian announced that Wayland will replace Xorg x11 in Debian 10 that is due in 2019

Is it possible Sid could have that replacement this early?  I think it could be but we should wait and see what is happening as RatMan suggested

Several python apps will be removed during this python transition.. This is similar to the Perl Jams we have seen in the past.. It is best to wait on any dist-upgrades until it is passes (couple of days)... In your case, after python conversions pass, just reinstall what was removed

You must be so proud Jed, well done to you and your family and of course good luck to your daughter

Emptying the nest is a painful yet wonderful time, I know what you must be feeling
