Don't try to save money on cables. Buy something good and reasonably priced, like Anker.
Double Commander doesn't look as bad as at first glance if you configure it properly! Looks modern, right?
And it's still the best file manager in Linux. Tuning and configuration possibilities are endless. If you invest some time learning non-always-obvious configuration, you can make it work exactly as you want. Sweet.
I've implemented little script that allows to call Fish Shell prompt from any app. Very handy for running single commands from Double Commander or Sublime Text:
- Prompts for single Fish command in left bottom corner of given application window
- To make benefit of Fish shell autocompletion and history
- Closes after one command is executed
- If command fails, leaves window to inspect error message
See this animated gif for example.
For example you want execute
git clone [email protected]:dmi3/bin.git in current directory from Double Commander:
Shift+F2and terminal window appears in left bottom corner of Double Commander window
- First you want
cloneto be autocompleted using Fish
- During clone process you want to see
gitcommand output to monitor progress
- If everything is ok, prompt will close
- In case of error you will have chance to read error message

Did you know that first Sony PlayStation had an accessory called multimap that allowed to play split screen for 4 players? I knew, but neither I or my friends were never able to get this accessory :(

Very busy, but still want to get notified about really important news like Meltdown or Heartbleed?
The major difference from weekly newsletters is it that newsletters need to fill up content to 10 topics, even if nothing happened. 1000 point threshold saves you from clutter, and you will not be bothered if nothing happened. "No news is good news".
- Check News API for more sources
- Ubuntu motd was initially meant to do that, but...
- If you are not busy at all, check newsbeuter - awesome CLI RSS client

Remember WordArt? Miss these cool creative headers in the modern world, where all sane people write their documents in Markdown? Pro tip, you can achieve same expressiveness by using FIGlets!
Don't forget to indent it with 4 spaces, to preserve monospaced font when compiling to html.
Don't underestimate how useful Clipboard Managers, and especially Clipboard Manager Actions could be. It allow you to link applications not connectible by other ways. For example by hotkey:
- Url copied from Vivaldi (Chrome) → Script that queues download to Synology NAS
- Url copied from Chrome → Play video stream in Vlc (without complicated hacks)
- Add bookmark
- Save to Instapaper
- Show QR code to quckly transfer copied text to your mobile phone
qrencode %s -s 15 -o /tmp/qr.png && xdg-open /tmp/qr.png
Windows and Mac users have Lightshot - simple tool that allows you to take, caption and edit screenshot in seconds. Unfortunately, on Linux we either stick with command line tools like
scrot. Or use Shutter, which if you ask me is terrible: app starts too slow, editing requires multiple clicks, there multiple windows...
Theres awesome screenshot tool called Deepin Scrot. It have Lightshot-like intuitive interface, that allows select windows or area, and edit screenshots instantly.
Theres bug, when screenshot included selection frame. Until its merged you can use fix in my fork:
Ubuntu's Notify OSD was great idea, most of functionality unfortunately wasn't implemented. It seems will never be completed.
If you are still using Notify OSD it that and replace with with Dunst.
Dunst advantages over Notify OSD:
- Can show more than one message ⚠
- Highly configurable
- Message stacking
- Group duplicated messages
- Close messages on click
- Notifications with critical urgency (
notify-send -u critical test), don't dissapear automaticaly and will be only closed on click
idle_timeoutso you don't miss notification if you are not near computer
- Custom rules for certain applications
- Supports urls
- Works fine in multiple monitor configuration
See sample config.Read More →
