Hello VastOne 
I hope, when the upgrade removes wicd, that you are not using it at the time. 
When upgrade removes medit, with what will you replace medit? 
.In with the new.  Readied for peril of mass removal. 


Hello VastOne and hello everyone

VSIDO News & Announcements / Re: Long live VSIDO

Happy Birthday. 
hello PackRat. hi jedi.  "You Rock" is very nice for you to speak such a thing.  Though in regard you VSIDO ROCKS i am from somewhere below sand.  I like to express it that this is a place where we walk among The Tall Trees of debian. 
The typing of vsido one in the previous post smoothly rolls. 
vsido #1 vsido one it is a natural fit. 
hello PackRat. hi jedi. vsido one system on one machine rules with ... well only 1245 packges. not bigger than 3000. but for comparison , folks.
hello PackRat
Thanks for examples You and jedi.  same output to conky as that previous image from this:
${color}key ${color7}state active
${color7}NumLock     ${exec xset q | awk '/Caps/ {print $8}'}
${color7}Caps Lock   ${exec xset q | awk '/Caps/ {print $4}'}

you accomplished having me learn a bit. Thanks vsido community forum.

hello PackRat
hi jedi.  Have no idea why it works.  Here it is:
${color}key ${color7}state active
${color7}NumLock   ${exec xset q | grep Num |awk '{print "  " $8}'}
${color7}Caps Lock ${exec xset q | grep Caps |awk '{print "  " $4}'}

There is some kind of awk default to print, so somehow it could be shorter. what do you think? can it be shortened?
Without Your start at it I never could have got this. thanks.
There is alternate ways, better way?
Is it close enough to not be considered silliness?
Fingers- crossed here that you say it is ready to share. is it ready?  If not, then stop me here before it makes me look silly elsewhere please.  I will wish to include the code You passed along as the starting point. 
hello PackRat
Thank You muchly, jedi.  I will give that a try.  Crinos51two8 is not found here at vsido,, found in other places an indication Crinos51two8 said to use freely the scripting.  Is it okay to share freely? did I get that right?  The chagrin part is that I started talking about the key state in another forum,, now,, this code provenance will include that it came through jedi.  Thanks. 
hello PackRat  and everyone
It started with a screencapture. It spun into disorientation looking through five years of conky.  Now left me in chagrin to re-find the recent jedi's 20180227a [/6V3nj] screencapture of February 22 shows conky with a keyboard key-state indicator.  finally found it again.  I do not know where best to post this : in screenshots February is past or in the conky thread.  I wish to know more about the key state indicator, please, jedi.  In the meantime I have convoluted a meager key indicator that does not look in conky so fantastic as that of jedi's screencapture. 
jedi. can You please send me in the right direction about that conky indicator? or show the code / script?  for key state.  seems useful for a machine that is without visual indicator.  how much resources does that eat? 
hello PackRat 

yes "clutch" vsido reliability is Always there upon return.  Thanks VastOne and Y'All.

hello PackRat
not just firefox.  had same issue here. just now happened attempting to log-in. you described it:"managed to bring up a different dialog box in the center of the screen" with the login button in the header. 
a login tussle is not so bad as ... it would not log me out!  i think it timed out at the sixty minutes set at login.  will see this time upon attempt to log-Out. 
It happened here vsido with vivaldi snapshot [chromium], machine updated the vivaldi snapshot (after waiting for it to log-out of vsido community) and it still happened again.  cleared cookies the second tussle and got normal log-in. then back to the refusal. now it happened using windowsten and seamonkey. 

edit: return here with the modify button, it logged-out instantly, had the log-in issues, succeeded using the Login button as before,
and again .. so the workaround here is that Login button in that header menubar thingie. Or the word login where it says Please Login; goes to page "...?action=login" is working.
_and again with using vsido and epiphany same symptoms and workaround. epiphany brought up a not secure message on the home page.  ... same again and again. successful log-out is okay now. 
._ and again. Clearing cookies does not seem to help.

hello hakerdefo

It is a misnomer to dub computer hardware "Memory", because a designer can explain or interpret how it functions.  Human memory cannot be explained.  I do appreciate the addition of "random access."
Experienced a random access today:
The absence of the LPs had me searching for a band name i did not find.  I had remembered Kilimanjaro. for years. until today.  The word kittyhawk came to mind. Oh. asked myself to what is that word connected. Why did I just mentally see that word.?  funny how the mind works.  Kittyhawk. That Band!   Where did that come from? 
Researching gave result kittyhawkgroup d o t c o m. 
I was introduced to the band a night Kittyhawk was the opener for The Dixie Dregs.[later, The Dregs.]  Was my first knowledge of the Chapman Stick.  As many as three participants in Kittyhawk play the stick and add guitar, drums, lyricon, saxophone, cello.  Kilimanjaro is a song title. 
KingCrimson includes the Stick. 

Also found a cd of a disconnected favorite LP.  rerelease of two albums by Lone Star.  cd BGO Records number BGOCD618. The band came out of Wales in May 1975.  That is one more for the british side, because it is my favorite music.  The cd has a great booklet of history, lyrics, two albums "Lone Star" and "Firing On All Six" , jacket does not have the original album numbers.  More on this a different day. 

The unseen LPs are on the move this week to a different storage location.  and today "Just listened to..." Kittyhawk. 
hello PackRat and hello everyone  The usual from here is a show of the default install. this time a click or two is beyond default.  Your installation will not look just like this.  12Jan_64 Lite vsido.
