^ No latam? What if you press the key right of "l" (en_US has a ";" there)

Confused...

HotDog still has a lot of work to be done ... I'm tired of holding a magnifying glass to the screen so I can see things. :D But At lease I have a colour scheme I feel - somewhat - comfortable with at the moment.

OK, did that this morning and the US keyboard messed me up ... no idea how to get out of a terminal in that situation.

WARNING: #! FILES ... everything works fine in HotDog
~/.nanorc

~/.Xresources

I have never changed those - I added monofur font to "terminator" a long time ago and special spanish characters dir work then. ie: ß ñ Ñ á ü

Like I said something changed (in #!) I should take this over there though. :)

?????????????????????? What happened to the code blocks? :(

OK, removed the code ... not for here for #! Sorry boss.

Excellent, no issues all around (ahem) :$
if ctrl-d doesn't get you out of a terminal (although possibly in that case just typing 'bash' can get it out) you can use whatever close window shortcut.
if that doesn't work, go to a TTY (ctrl + alt F3 or whatever) and kill the login or terminal program. although the console keybd might not work, then just reboot i guess :)
hang on, is this 2/5 questions?

^ yes you should :)

C-M-x to close a terminal (control - meta - x)

You probably want a 'real' window manager (to be honest, cwm is not my favourite)

EDIT: All below the ---- is what I wrote before I saw your Xresources.

Please do the following:

Code: Select all

cp ~/.Xresources ~/.Xresources_cb
cp /etc/skel/.Xresources .
This gives you an untouched Xresources a la BBQ.

------- ORIGINAL POST

Anyway, we first want to rock the Xresources. Open two terminals.

Terminal 1

Code: Select all

nano ~/.Xresources
You want to change the size of the fonts
URxvt*font: -*-terminus-medium-*-*-*-13-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
URxvt*boldFont: -*-terminus-bold-*-*-*-13-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

To see which fonts and sizes are available, you can use "xfontsel".

Terminal 2

Code: Select all

xfontsel
click and hold 'fmly' and choose one of the fonts there. Do the same with 'pxlsz' -- you probably want 17 or so. After selecting an existing font configuration, click on "Select" in the upper row.

Back to Terminal 1
Move the cursor to Urxvt*font
Place a ! in front of it
it should look something like this (just note the ! at the beginning!)

Code: Select all

!URxvt*font:             -*-terminus-medium-*-*-*-13-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
Add a new line below this one. Type

Code: Select all

URxvt*font:
and immediately press middle-mouse or type in the long name as shown in xlfontsel.

Press Ctrl-o Enter Ctrl-x Enter, then

Code: Select all

xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources
x-terminal-emulator
If you didn't put a typo in, a new terminal with larger fonts should open.

OK I see, please ignore my above post!

(Can we please concentrate on one installation? I'm getting slightly confused :) - #! is totally different in all basic things: Xresources, xinitrc, autostart, keybindings)

^ no, that actually was not a good idea. Argentina speaks Castellano not Spanish, and by changing the keyboard where was a loss of Portuguese symbols/characters that were used when communicating with Brazilians - think import/export.

Broke the line? probably me. :(

Openbox huh? welcome to the pussy-club S11 :)

something tells me this isn't going to be done in 5 questions or less. next one should be done in 5 questions AND max 10 posts ;)

A day at the BBQ:

A: "How to open a terminal?"
B: "Which edition?"
A: "The newest one"
C: "Usually ctrl-alt-enter"
B: "Wait, not if there's no xbindkeys"
A: "Do I need to install it?"
D: "Check with policy xbindkeys"
A: "But I cannot open a terminal..."
C: "Do it in a TTY!"
E: "Guys, the newest edition is no-X"

I'm sorry if my number of post bothers some here. I'll slow down ... had to anyway for personal reasons over the past few days.

- OpenBox because I'm use to it.
- - I'm not the brightest bulb in the room, so I have to try harder - therefore using something I know helps.
- Sometimes It takes me forever to type some posts, because I can not type properly.
- - thank God for spell checkers
- - typos create a mess on the CLI but I'm still trying - I'm not a computer geek, but I am trying to venture out here in an area that is murky for me..
- - although never tested, I suspect a little dyslexia as well - I know I have that problem with numbers.

After days of trying to get VirtualBox running on #!
- it kept logging me out - I finally managed after searching for help.
- found a post suggesting NOT using the repo version ... well DUH that was it.
- and thanks to an OLD machinebacon post (2008) I can do: "virtualbox --startvm BBQHotDog", never knew that before, Thanks Jules
- works well as an alias as well, which I use a lot odf because of my typos.:

Code: Select all

alias bbqhd='echo "alias bbqhd = virtualbox --startvm BBQHotDog" ; virtualbox --startvm BBQHotDog'
I'll get HotDot running a way I like it without sacrificing the CLI integrity ... if it kills me .. or I die first! It happens to be the longest I have had a BBQ flavour running here. After the update I installed apt-listbugs and then did a dist-upgrade - only had to put one package on hold - not sure which one at the moment, I'm in #!:

Code: Select all

alias hld='echo "alias hld = sudo apt-mark hold app_name" ; sudo apt-mark hold'
alias unhld='echo "alias unhld = sudo apt-mark unhold app_name" ; sudo apt-mark unhold'
I'm old and need two pair of glasses - bifocals for normal use and a special pair for the computer means some fonts really bother my eyes. So if my configuration and font choice bothers you: TOUGH SHIT! It's not your system, it's mine! I'll respect your choice, please respect mine.

Peace... this post: ±20 minutes ... have a nice day.

Everything is good Sector. It is the /dev/null section after all, so we had some fun.

Are you still holding grub, no need for that?
