What are your Tips and Tricks for the Clementine Music Player?

Mon, 2017-09-18 20:16

I have read a lot of praise for the Clementine Music player. I use it myself and I think it's really good albeit a little sparse on documentation. I particularly like how I can get it to organize my entire music library. One tip I have is going to the Preferences > General > Behavior > Double clicking a song will... and changing it to always start playing if you are used to that type of behavior. What are your tips and tricks and how do you use Clementine to play and organize your music library?

Linux for 486 laptop?

Mon, 2017-09-18 19:42

I have an old Toshiba Laptop, T1950CT, 486 40mHz, currently running Windows 3.1

Not sure how much RAM it has (don't remember how to check on a Windows 3.1 machine)

No optical drive, just a 3.5" floppy and one PCMCIA slot.

Is there any linux distribution that I can install that can make this computer somewhat useful (just need to be able to browse the internet honestly)?

Looking for a Chronium based OS

Mon, 2017-09-18 16:22

Hi! I've been going around the internet for the last couple months trying to look for the perfect distro for me. I've went from Ubuntu to Fedora, even trying out Mint or elementary. I settled for Neverware Chronium OS until the last update totally broke it. Tried to reinstall it, same issue. So I went looking. And I found Cub OS! I thought it was the one. But I then found it was discontinued in 2015...

Solus looked great until I found out it ran Firefox instead of Chronium and I just can't get rid of some of the webapps I use. So, pass. Then I found Flint OS! Installed it and whatever I tried, the WiFi would immediately get lost after a couple seconds. Impossible to set it up without the WiFi.

Nayu OS is only made for some Chromebooks, I'm using an old windows Laptop.

Anyway. My search lead me here. My device is a HP x360 310 g1.

I don't mind some more features to the OS. Before anything, I'm looking for an interface like Chrome OS which I just love. It's super simple and totally distracting. So, will anyone will come to my rescue? ;p

Thank you in advance c:

[Bash Script] Interactive GUI alert when you receive a new reply or PM on reddit

Mon, 2017-09-18 15:32

Here's what the GUI looks like.

It works by fetching json information from your inbox and aggregating it into a program called YAD.

The links take you directly to the private message or comment thread.

There's another json fetch that grabs your karma and displays it in the gui.


Script Configs

reddit_user your username

inbox_json Grab that URL here JSON - unread messages

prompt_picture YAD icon file location

working_directory where the script will run
