If you'd like to look at my Fluxbox Files

Filed under
Linux

Fluxbox is simple and configurable, two things that rarely go together this well. And it's also portable. I've been rewriting these files for six years, and I've run some version of them with fluxbox in maybe a dozen different distros.

I call this configuration Konqbox, because its always been centered on KDE applications, and now it incorporates Plasma Widgets into the mix. KDE filemanagers (and here I'll include the Folder View widget) bring the graphical capabilities of a full-fledged Desktop environment to any window manager, and fluxbox puts that capability under your complete control.

Fluxbox Download links

Zipped up fluxbox files

Installer script for Kubuntu

http://download1048.mediafire.com/vh7loh8rzgqg/1722wp1p0ojhu8o/konqbox.sh

download both files to your home directory, type

sudo sh konqbox.sh

The script should install missing applications from the kubuntu default, save the preexisting fluxbox files, unzip the fluxbox files.

If you don't have kubuntu, you can just unzip the files, overwriting the original fluxbox files.

Testing and documentation will be continuing in the comments.

Restricted: Can't test the script with Kubuntu Live

On a side note I'm finding that because of RESTRICTED REPOSITORIES, I can't run added software onto the Kubuntu live CD, even if I make a startup disk with a persistence file. So I can't test my installer script to make sure it will run on my friend's kubuntu system without installing Kubuntu to my hard drive. I guess I could make a VM.

Restricted Repositories are not good. Among other things, it will make it much harder for people to make custom CDs. I will be posting about this. Am considering the title "Why Kubuntu is Dead to Me" Oh, and you thought you were pissed about Unity!

I'm about to boot an Ubuntu CD to see just how far the problem has extended.

Screenshots: Plasma Widgets in fluxbox

http://www.mediafire.com/imgbnc.php/695324f87cdd82de6fb1c8c291b01b64c40261c3b1d32def12b121b75d1416186g.jpg

The command is for opening plasma widgets is plasmoidviewer

[exec] (Folder View) {plasmoidviewer folderview}
[exec] (Analog Clock) {plasmoidviewer clock}
[exec] (Pager) {plasmoidviewer pager}
[exec] (weather) {plasmoidviewer yaWP}

To get a list of all widgets and the correct names for the plasmoidvier command, type plasmoidviewer --list into a terminal.

Tips for quick editing and organizing shortcuts in Fluxbox

Fluxbox is configured by editing text files. The configuration files are as easy to understand as any GUI, but there are things to do that make the physical act of typing a lot faster

1. Menu items and keyboard shortcuts that provide instant access:

#Group C: KDE APPLICATIONS
#Ctrl + Alt + Key
Mod1 Control 1 :execCommand
Mod1 Control 2 :execCommand
Mod1 Control 3 :execCommand
Mod1 Control 4 :execCommand
Mod1 Control 5 :execCommand
Mod1 Control 6 :execCommand ksnapshot
Mod1 Control 7 :execCommand konqueror ~/.fluxbox/kickpage/kickpage.html
Mod1 Control 8 :execCommand
Mod1 Control 9 :execCommand k9copy
Mod1 Control 0 :execCommand konsole
Mod1 Control a :execCommand amarok
Mod1 Control b :execCommand
Mod1 Control c :execCommand kcron
Mod1 Control d :execCommand dolphin
Mod1 Control e :execCommand
Mod1 Control f :execCommand kaffeine
Mod1 Control g :execCommand
Mod1 Control h :execCommand
Mod1 Control i :execCommand ktimer
Mod1 Control j :execCommand kjots
Mod1 Control k :execCommand konqueror
Mod1 Control l :execCommand kcalc
Mod1 Control m :execCommand kmix
Mod1 Control n :execCommand knotes
Mod1 Control o :execCommand konsole
Mod1 Control p :execCommand kpager
Mod1 Control q :execCommand konqueror ~/.fluxbox/kickpage/index.html
Mod1 Control r :execCommand krename
Mod1 Control s :execCommand
Mod1 Control t :execCommand ktorrent
Mod1 Control u :execCommand
Mod1 Control v :execCommand
Mod1 Control w :execCommand kwrite
Mod1 Control x :execCommand
Mod1 Control y :execCommand
Mod1 Control z :execCommand

My key file is arranged in groups of 36:
a set of modifying keys (e.g. CTRL + ALT) is matched to all 36 alphanumeric keys.

Arranging the keybinding in groups makes it easier to remember a large number of keyboard shortcuts. If you can remember that CTRL + ALT are the modifying keys for KDE applications,

it's easier to remember that CTRL + ALT + W opens Kwrite,

and CTRL + ALT + T opens Ktorrent

Of course, any crazy association is great for remembering key combinations when it's YOUR crazy association. I use

CTRL + ALT + 6

to activate Ksnapshot, the KDE screenshot application, because the ^ at the top of the 6 key looks like a little arrow pointing at the screen.

#KICKBOX KEYBINDINGS
#To make them easier to remember, the default keyboard shortcuts are organized into groups.
#Different modifier keys are assigned to different groups of shortcuts.
#For example, the combination of "Ctrl + Alt", when used in combination with any key (other than F1 through F12)
#is only used to open a KDE application.
#Once you can remember that, the keys can be chosen to be as mnomic as possible.
#For example: "Ctrl + Alt + A" opens Amarok.
# "Ctrl + Alt + W" opens kwrite.
# "Ctrl + Alt + T" opens Ktorrent

Leftovers: OSS and Sharing

  • Making your OpenStack monitoring stack highly available using Open Source tools
    Operators tasked with maintaining production environments are relying on monitoring stacks to provide insight to resource usage and a heads-up to threats of downtime. Perhaps the most critical function of a monitoring stack is providing alerts which trigger mitigation steps to ensure an environment stays up and running. Downtime of services can be business-critical, and often has extremely high cost ramifications. Operators working in cloud environments are especially reliant on monitoring stacks due to the increase in potential inefficiency and downtime that comes with greater resource usage. The constant visibility of resources and alerts that a monitoring stack provides, makes it a fundamental component of any cloud.
  • InfraRed: Deploying and Testing Openstack just made easier!
  • The journey of a new OpenStack service in RDO
    When new contributors join RDO, they ask for recommendations about how to add new services and help RDO users to adopt it. This post is not a official policy document nor a detailed description about how to carry out some activities, but provides some high level recommendations to newcomers based on what I have learned and observed in the last year working in RDO.
  • Getting to know the essential OpenStack components better
  • Getting to know core components, speed mentoring, and more OpenStack news
  • Testing LibreOffice 5.3 Notebookbar
    I teach an online CSCI class about usability. The course is "The Usability of Open Source Software" and provides a background on free software and open source software, and uses that as a basis to teach usability. The rest of the class is a pretty standard CSCI usability class. We explore a few interesting cases in open source software as part of our discussion. And using open source software makes it really easy for the students to pick a program to study for their usability test final project.
  • [Older] Drupal member sent out after BDSM lifestyle revealed

    Drupal, like many other open source projects, has a stated goal of welcoming and accepting all people, no matter their heritage, culture, sexual orientation, gender identity or other factors.

  • Controversy Erupts in Open-Source Community After Developer's Sex Life Made Public
    Drupal is a popular open-source content-management system, used to build websites. Like many other open-source projects, Drupal is guided by several committees that are supposed to be accountable to the community and its code of conduct, which enshrines values like "be considerate" and "be respectful." Also like many other open-source projects, Drupal attracts all sorts of people, some of whom are eclectic. Last week, under murky circumstances, Drupal creator Dries Buytaert banned one of the project's technical and community leaders, Larry Garfield. Buytaert attributed the decision to aspects of Garfield's private sex life. Many Drupal users and developers are up in arms about the perceived injustice of the move, exacerbated by what they see as a lack of transparency.
  • HospitalRun: Open Source Software for the Developing World
    When open source software is used for global health and global relief work, its benefits shine bright. The benefits of open source become very clear when human health and human lives are on the line. In this YouTube video, hear Harrisburg, Pennsylvania software developer Joel Worrall explain about HospitalRun software – open source cloud-based software used at developing world healthcare facilities.
  • Scotland emphasises sharing and reuse of ICT
    Scotland’s public administrations should focus on common, shared technology platforms, according to the new digital strategy, published on 22 March. The government says it wants to develop “shared infrastructure, services and standards in collaboration with our public sector partners, to reduce costs and enable resources to be focused on front-line services.”

  • Austria state secretary promotes open data
    The State Secretary at Austria’s Federal Chancellery, Muna Duzdar, is encouraging the making available of government data as open data. “The administration must set an example and support the open data culture by giving society its data back”, the State Secretary for Digitalisation said in a statement.
  • Study: Hungary should redouble open data initiatives
    The government of Hungary should redouble its efforts to make public sector information available as open data, and actively help to create market opportunities, a government white paper recommends. The ‘White Paper on National Data Policy’ was approved by the government in December.
  • Williamson School Board OKs developing open source science curriculum
    Science textbooks may be a thing of the past in Williamson County Schools. The Williamson County school board approved a proposal Monday night to use open source science resources instead of science textbooks. The switch will require a team of nine teachers to spend a year developing an open source curriculum.
  • How Elsevier plans to sabotage Open Access
    It was a long and difficult road to get the major publishing houses to open up to open access, but in the end the Dutch universities got their much awaited ‘gold deal’ for open access. A recently revealed contract between Elsevier and the Dutch research institutes lays bare the retardant tactics the publishing giant employs to stifle the growth of open access.

Security Leftovers

  • Security updates for Monday
  • FedEx Will Pay You $5 to Install Flash on Your Machine
    FedEx is making you an offer you can’t afford to accept. It’s offering to give you $5 (actually, it’s a discount on orders over $30) if you’ll just install Adobe Flash on your machine. Nobody who knows anything about online security uses Flash anymore, except when it’s absolutely necessary. Why? Because Flash is the poster child for the “security-vulnerability-of-the-hour” club — a group that includes another Adobe product, Acrobat. How unsafe is Flash? Let’s put it this way: seven years ago, Steve Jobs announced that Flash was to be forever banned from Apple’s mobile products. One of the reasons he cited was a report from Symantec that “highlighted Flash for having one of the worst security records in 2009.” Flash security hasn’t gotten any better since.
  • Every once in a while someone suggests to me that curl and libcurl would do better if rewritten in a “safe language”
  • An insecure dishwasher has entered the IoT war against humanity

    Regel says that he has contacted Miele on a number of occasions about the issue, but had failed to get a response to his missives, and this has no updated information on the vulnerability.

    He added, bleakly that "we are not aware of an actual fix."

  • Monday Witness: It's Time to Reconize a Civil Right Not to be Connected
    Along with death and taxes, two things appear inevitable. The first is that Internet of Things devices will not only be built into everything we can imagine, but into everything we can't as well. The second is that IoT devices will have wholly inadequate security, if they have any security at all. Even with strong defenses, there is the likelihood that governmental agencies will gain covert access to IoT devices anyway. What this says to me is that we need a law that guarantees consumers the right to buy versions of products that are not wirelessly enabled at all.
  • Remember kids, if you're going to disclose, disclose responsibly!
    If you pay any attention to the security universe, you're aware that Tavis Ormandy is basically on fire right now with his security research. He found the Cloudflare data leak issue a few weeks back, and is currently going to town on LastPass. The LastPass crew seems to be dealing with this pretty well, I'm not seeing a lot of complaining, mostly just info and fixes which is the right way to do these things.
