Haha! I haven’t really understood how cmus works but it seems just to play cool music from my collection without needing me to choose it^^
I mean, when the playlist is over it will sometimes just continue to play and it’s always something I like. This is going to be a big facepalm when I realize the reason for it I think. Bbut right now it’s just magic, hrhr.
Seems to rock away MPD for me. Still not sure. I’m just checking out different players. Actually I couldn’t figure out how to let MPD access folders in my home(runnin as its own user). Had it working before but with an own folder in /var and loved it so far. So don’t see this as hidden MPD bashing ID3 editing rules in MPD!
Since I’m using vimprobable for the most part of browsing and I want to use Tor for everything, that doesn’t need lots of bandwidth I’ve been looking for a nice solution to start vimprobable with and without Proxy enabled.
Since it uses the http_proxy variable for this I tried to set a shortcut in wmiirc to start vimprobable in Tor mode which wouldn’t work since wmii tries to execute each part of ‘http_proxy=”127.0.0.1:8118″ vimprobable’.
So I set up two small scripts in /usr/bin and called them vimpossible and vimpossible2.
- export http_proxy=”127.0.0.1:8118″
- vimprobable $1
nothing fancy Now I can start vimprobable using tor just by using the ‘vimpossible’ command.
Need to find a way to nicely paste code here…
First I wanted my first entry to be nagging about my wireless but well, wouldn’t be such a nice way to start out.
So I decided to rather start out with my system
I’m running Arch on a HP Compaq nc2400 kind of subnotebook which actually runs out of the box without any problems (except for my wifi problem which is to follow).
Lately the Arch community and all of its maniacs for CLI applications and tiling WMs have taken over all of what I am doing voluntarily on my computer so I spend much time on looking for nice and fast solutions for everything. Actually the only thing I still do via GUI is browsing the internet. And even that recently got a cut-down since I have decided to use newsbeuter for my frequently visited news-pages.
Well now, so what I’m running is:
- WM: wmii (wmii-hg from AUR)
- Terminal: urxvt (-d/-c) –> screen and dvtm as multiplexers
- Browser: vimprobable/firefox (only where vimprobable fails)/links
- Media: mplayer, vlc for broken files
- OpenOffice for homeworks (to be replaced by LaTeX)
I could go on there but I consider these the ones where I am more or less fixed at this point of time. I wanted to add vim for an editor but I thought it’d fit better in this comment. Uuuh, I should stick to small posts about cool stuff
For wmii I am using the almost stock dash script as wmiirc. Since I lack any profound programming knowledge this is where I can still do the most. I might give python a try in the future though.
Uhm… Well wasn’t this interesting?
Well, for the future this blog is supposed to be a way to publish my configuration issues nice new discoveries (like xcalib, yeah!) and wireless issues grr! So nothing fancy. But since many times I am looking for a very particular problem a small blog like this saves my day so this is my contibution
