natty epiphany3 gtk2 gtk2

Natty GTK2 and GTK3

My Ubuntu Natty default shipped GTK2 and Epiphany (browser) 2.x. I wanted to switch to Epiphany 3.x but it comes along with several GTK3 stuff.

This is how I did it

Enable Oneiric reposotiry

Although it's only alpha at this moment, I enabled them in my "sources.list" I did not enable any pinning. Dont forget to apt-get update.

Install wanted softwares and dependences

After installing Epiphany, Evince and Evolution (yes...), It worked well but the aspect of GTK3 windows was different because of my current GTK2 theme was not ported to GTK3 yet. As far as I searched, Radiance and Ambiance were ported so I switched to them on my XFCE Theme manager and all went well. Radiance and Ambiance are part of the light-themes package (on Ubuntu).

GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser' does not contain a key named 'last-folder-uri'

I encoutered that error:

  • Epiphany: When I open the preference menu (the download location?)
  • Evolution: When replying to a message (the attachment folder to open?)
After some search I found:

npm run build base-href

Using NPM to specify base-href When building an Angular application, people usually use "ng" and pass arguments to that invocation. Typically, when wanting to hard code "base-href" in "index.html", one will issue: ng build --base-href='' I used to build my angular apps through Bamboo or Jenkins and they have a "npm" plugin. I got the habit to build the application with "npm run build" before deploying it. But the development team once asked me to set the "--base-href=''" parameter. npm run build --base-href=' did not set the base href in indext.html After looking for a while, I found where it says: You need to use −− to pass arguments to npm scripts. This did the job! The command to issue is then: npm run build -- --base-href='

dockerfile multiline to file

Outputing a multiline string from Dockerfile I motsly use a Dockerfile by sourcing from a base ditribution: CentOS or Debian. But I also have a local mirror and would like to use it for packages installation. Espacially on CentOS it is about many lines to write to the /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo file. Easiest way: one RUN per line The first method that comes in mind is to issue one RUN per line to write. Here you are: RUN echo "[base] " > /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "name=CentOS-$releasever - Base " >> /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "baseurl= " >> /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "gpgcheck=0 &quo

Gnome VNC Grey Checkboxes

When setting up VNC server in Gnome, I get a grey screen (or a black one) and the checkboxes to "Accept clipboard from viewers", "Send clipboard to viewers", "Send primary selection to viewers". I'm setting up a VNC server on a Debian 10 machine that has Gnome environment. A zillion articles can be found on Internet, they have the same global path: Install Gnome and GDM Install TigerVNC Setup the VNC Server: password + startup Run the server Connect from the client One of them is this TeknoTut how-to I took inspiration from. The tutorial is good, but I needed to complete it with extra steps in order to make it work: If the current user has already a running Gnome session, I just get the "grey screen with the checkboxes". It is good to know that: The "grey screen" is due to the "xsetroot" command that can be seen in some howtos The checkboxes are due to the "vncconfig -iconic &" command
