linux nvidia fonts session

Fonts in desktop environment always change across reboots

On my Archlinux, I installed proprietary nVidia drivers because of the presence of an nVidia card.
Unfortunately, each time I reboot, I have to set the fonts through the desktop environment in order to have the correct font size.

It's a DPI detection problem

According to some community posts, it has to do with DPI detection

Hard seting the DPI

The solution I choosed is to edit "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" and add
  Option "DPI" "96 x 96"
in the "Monitor" section.

The "Monitor" section becomes:
Section "Monitor"
 Identifier "Monitor0"
 VendorName "Unknown"
 ModelName "Unknown"
 HorizSync  28.0 - 33.0
 VertRefresh 43.0 - 72.0
 Option  "DPMS"
 Option "DPI" "96 x 96"
EndSection
Don't touch other sections unless you know what you're doing.
Reboot and enjoy.

vmware net_device trans_start

VMWare Workstation 12 and Kernel 4.7 When recompiling vmware kernel modules on a kernel 4.7, I get this error:

/tmp/modconfig-xrrZGZ/vmnet-only/netif.c:468:7: error: ‘struct net_device’ has no member named ‘trans_start’; did you mean ‘mem_start’?     dev->trans_start = jiffies;
This seems to be an already encountered problem: http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=1746http://ferenc.homelinux.com/?p=356 I choosed to replace the line, instead of deleting it.

- dev->trans_start = jiffies; + netif_trans_update(dev); I also noted that I had to re-tar the modified sources instead of leaving them untared, because the compilation process only takes the archives. 
On precedent editions of these files, I just left the modified folders "vmnet-only/" and "vmmon-only/" expanded without the need to re-tar them.


Jira workflow for new projects

Associated workflow creation I'm a Jira Cloud user and begining from some version 6, I noticed that when I create a project, it automatically creates a Workflow and Issue Scheme that is prepended by the project key and which is a copy of the default scheme.
I always had to make a cleanup after creating a project. Default workflow for new projects I also miss a feature that would allow me to make a custom workflow (and globally custom project setting) the default for new projects I create.
Solution: Create with shared configuration While searching, I noticed that with Jira Cloud which is version 7.1.0 at the time I write, there is a link at the bottom of the "Create project" wizard:
"Create with shared configuration" will allow me to select the project I want the new one to share configuration with.

The new created project will use the same configuration as the project I selectThere will be no creation of Workflow and Issue Scheme that I need to cleanup
