Actully, the way that xset is output, you can just use the first character -

Code: [Select]
[pts/4]-[~]% xset q | awk '/00:/ {print $6 " " $7 " " $8}'
Num Lock: on
[pts/4]-[~]% xset q | awk '/00:/ {print $2 " " $3 " " $4}'
Caps Lock: off

fun with text parsing  ;D

@riV - using grep with awk is usually overkill - using the big hammer to pound finishing nails sort of thing.

Just use awk by itself and use grep with sed.

and you don't necessarily need the heading in your conky, you can do it all with awk, use quotes to space:

Code: [Select]
[pts/0]-[~]% xset q | awk '/Caps Lock:/ {print $2 " " $3 " " $4}'
Caps Lock: off
[pts/0]-[~]% xset q | awk '/Caps Lock:/ {print $2 " " $3 " " $4}'
Caps Lock: on
[pts/0]-[~]% xset q | awk '/Num Lock:/ {print $6 " " $7 " " $8}'
Num Lock: on
[pts/0]-[~]% xset q | awk '/Num Lock:/ {print $6 " " $7 " " $8}'
Num Lock: off
[pts/0]-[~]% xset q | awk '/Num Lock:/ {print $6 " " $7 " " $8}'
Num Lock: on

Scripts / Re: vsido-exit (systemd based logout script for VSIDO)

Was cleaning up some other scripts so went ahead and added hibernate to the vsido-exit script should anyone want that. Haven't tested it, my harddrive with VSIDO bought the farm; should work though, standard systemctl command.

Code: [Select]
#!/usr/bin/env bash
vslo_menu (){
vslo_ttle="What would you like to do?"
vslo_main=$(yad --title="$vslo_ttle" --class="$vslo_clas" --window-icon="$vslo_wico" --width="648" --height="48" --center --fixed --on-top --buttons-layout=center  --button="Cancel!! Cancel:1" --button="Logout!$vslo_bute!Logout of VSIDO:2" --button="Suspend!$vslo_buts!Suspend VSIDO:3" --button="Hibernate!$vslo_buts!Hibernate VSIDO:4" --button="Reboot!$vslo_butr!Reboot VSIDO:5" --button="Shutdown!$vslo_butq!Shutdown VSIDO:6")
case "$vslo_main" in
1 | 252)
exit 1
id_of_session=$(loginctl session-status | head -n 1 | awk '{print $1}')
loginctl terminate-session "$id_of_session"

Slow day, straight up xfce4 with conky. Using xfce4 native compositing so put a border around conky for some texture to the conky window, looks better than just a semi-transparant rectangle on the desktop. I wounder if rounded window corners has ever been requested as a conky feature?

@vastone -

Ever configured xfce to use fluxbox as the window manager? That's kind of interesting since you get the session management of xfce with fluxbox window management.

Edit - put my money where my mouth is; Xfce4 session with fluxbox as the window manager:


Get the benefit of fluxbox apps file (grouped xfce4 terminals) and window decor management. Fluxbox controlling the key bindings for window management - much more control that xfce4; xfce4 controls the desktop and panel.

General Support / Re: Unable to switch from Nvidia to AMD GPU
« on: March 02, 2018, 12:40:56 PM »
Usually you'll need to completely remove the Nvidia/nouveau drivers before installing the AMD drivers (and vice versa) or the graphics driver hangs. Is the xserver-xorg-video-nouveau still installed? Did propietary Nvidia also create an xorg.conf? The drivers from their site use to do that, but I haven't gone that route in a while.

There is a Display Driver Uninstall utility (DDU) that does a complete removal of graphics drivers - I think there is a Linux version. Never used it so I can't vouch for it. I'd like to think "apt-get purge --remove" would be the better option.

Maybe I just did it enough times - would have been about attempt #6.

I'll try again from the other desktop later.

Ok I'm in on Firefox - but it was kind of by accident.

I was reading the Mozilla verbage about unsecure sites - which conveniently does not say to make the site secure so a user can log in.

I went back to try logging in and somehow missed clicking on my user name box, but managed to bring up a different dialog box in the center of the screen that had the user name and login information. Entering user name and password into that dialog got me in.

Going to reboot and see if I can get back in.

Edit - I now log in automatically as before from Firefox. So entering credentials in that other box has apparently performed some sort of brain surgery on Firefox.

I thought this issue was addressed a while back, but I can't locate it.

On Firefox or Firefox-esr, when I try to log in to VSIDO, I immediately get kicked out with this message:

Code: [Select]
Your session timed out while posting. Please go back and try again.
This is only occurring from the desktop computers which happen to be hard wired connections; I can log in from those computers using Opera (but not Chromium). From my laptop (wireless) and phone, I can log in from Firefox

I thought the adblocker add-in may have been acting up, but I can't log in from clean installs of Firefox without any extensions.
