General Support / Re: fluxbox restart mod keys in a script

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

That's apparently a Debian (Sid) security thing; works with conky, tint2, but not the window manager. Works on the wm in Void.

Try -

Code: [Select]
xdotool key alt+F7

and see if that works; it's working with my VSIDO fluxbox restart key binding - "Super + q"

How does nomachine work? You apparently log into it, but is there something similar to dhcp going on where it provides a lease - like every 90 seconds maybe?

Is there some configuration on the host you can change?

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?

Conky won't run a key binding or an window manager internal command, you would have to set up an xdotool command to simulate the key sequence - more trouble than it's worth IMO.

If you want to run it in conky:

${execpi 90  pkill -x -USR1 fluxbox}

or set that command up as a cron job.

No call.

Actually, there may be some backlash aimed at the Weather Channel and other news outlets over-hyping the destructive power of the storm and accentuating the doom-and-gloom aspect. Seen a couple editorials with that slant, hopefully it doesn't get out of hand and people stay focused on the relief efforts.

Yes, I'm running the dkms module for Nvidia.

Nvidia is probably a safe guess then - based on what snap pointed out about mess. There were several packages for X and kernel that came in with that.

Installing Nvidia propietary driver used to be so easy. Now it's a royal pain in the ass.

nvidia would by mu first guess. You have the nvidia-dkms installed or go with nouveau?

I've had xorg issues before; maybe related to development files or something. I tend to get the dev files so I can compile something not in the debian repos. I think polybar is installed on the VSIDO box, that required a lot of X related files.

Problem seems to be nearly/completely resolved. Should be able to dist-upgrade after Irma blows through (but before Jose gets here!).

Showtime - the wind picked up about 7:00PM EST:



Check back in a couple days - assuming the power is up and running.

I'm on the call list for a FEMA contractor - albeit way down the list - I can see where my phone rings this time around.
