Yakuake config hotkey

Victor Häggqvist Feb 14, 2015 0

TL;DR Check in ~/.kde/share/config/yakuakerc.

So when having configured Yakuake so show nothing but the terminal there is only one way to access the settings gui, which is by hotkey. This gets pretty disturbing when not knowing that hotkey. This hotkey don't seem to be set through the normal KDE settings for hotkeys, atleast not on my system. But you are not totally screwed, since this hotkey is in Yakuake config file itself, which by default is ~/.kde/share/config/yakuakerc. There under shortcuts it is.


FYI, I'm pretty sure mine is not the default, so you better check your own config.

Todo.txt for Windows Metro mode looking for maintainer

Victor Häggqvist Oct 01, 2014 0

As the developer of the as far as I know only Todo.txt client for Windows Metro mode,, I'm now announcing that the app will be taken down in the end of 2014 if not earlier.

This is since the app only provide the most basic feature, to add and check off todos, I rather take it down than not supporting/developing it.

As of today the app has about 400 downloads.

The source of the app is not open today, but if there is a community intressent I will release it under a GPLv2 license.

Are you interested to keep it alive? Then contact me.

Compiling KeePassX from source with Auto-Type enabled

Victor Häggqvist Sep 03, 2014 0

tl;dr Install the libXtest package, which on Debian is libxtst-dev. Wasn't it obvious that test is spelled with no e? Not to me atleast.

This is done on a Debian Jessie (aka Testing) machine.

Following will assume you have managed to get KeePassX compile happy. But then when you go in to settings you can't find where to define the global Auto-Typ key.

You might have noticed that during the cmake run libXtest was listed as a optional dependency. If you didn't happen to have it installed KeePassX will compile with Auto-Type functionality disabled. To be able to compile with Auto-Type support install libxtst-dev like so;

sudo apt-get install libxtst-dev

Then you just run cmake and make again to compile with Auto-Type enabled.

An Image lightbox

Victor Häggqvist Jun 28, 2014 0

Every now and then when creating for the web you are likely to need a fancy slideshow way of displaying images, a lightbox. There is of course lightbox which now a days is lightbox2. But that one didn't really catch me enough, so the search continues. Now lately a couple of months ago I stumbled upon a blogpost by Osvaldas Valutis who apparently had sort of the same experience as me. He equally like me wanted something simple and slick that would give a great experience on any device, touch devices included. To my satisfaction he also provided it!

While his start was great, it was a little inaccessible just lying on his site with a downloadable JavaScript file. But that didn't stop me, as I'm using it on this site. I thought I'd make it some what more accessible. So here it is and passing jshint, which it didn't before. Check it out over here.
