There is a great way to do this if you have the luxury of having two computers. Two computers can be especially practical if you install one (the one that is driving the video) near the projector which could be in an inconvenient location, and the other one (call it the remote control, it can be a cheap laptop) where you need to run the show. On the video ...

You'll run your things with ssh -X (assuming your laptop runs a Linux with some X11 desktop) and you would only install the packages of client applications, e.g. sudo aptitude install gedit gnome-terminal emacs24 xterm I forgot the package manager on Gentoo, so use pacman instead of aptitude this will pull the required client libraries (e.g. GTK, Xlib, ...

XChat can run commands in existing instances, and the command you want is "gui show" $ xchat -e -c "gui show"

Generally, you can customise the Thunderbird’s look with the files chrome/userChrome.css (for the UI) and chrome/userContent.css (for the message display), both located in your Thunderbird profile folder. (You might have to create them.) In order to find the relevant CSS selector, a DOM inspector might help.

2 shots: 1. Perhaps login as root is denied (that's the default setting on many systems and it is pretty reasonable). Did you tried with a different user? 2. Did you try sshing with ssh -Y?

You can put commands that you want to run before starting xmonad in ~/.xmonad/xmonad-session-rc. If you have a ~/.xsession, its job is to start your whole X session. When that script returns, your session is over. So if you want to use this file, you need to launch xmonad from it. #! /bin/sh /home/kevin/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd & exec xmonad Note that ...

I have a partial solution. I make an overlay key <TAB> { overlay2=<HYPR> }; Then set the rarely-used pause/break key to trigger the overlay: key <PAUS> { type= "PC_CONTROL_LEVEL2", symbols[Group1]= [ Overlay2_Enable, Overlay2_Enable ] }; interpret Overlay2_Enable+AnyOfOrNone(all) { action= ...

Only scaling wont help. I have yoga 2 pro with resolution 3200x1800 and external FHD monitor. In my case i use xrandr panning option: xrandr --output eDP1 --auto --output HDMI1 --auto --panning 3840x2160+3200+0 --scale 2x2 --right-of eDP1 Basically if your hidpi monitor is AxB pixels and your regular monitor is CxD and you are scaling by [ExF], the ...

After researching, I found out that this is a fundamental limitation of the X11 protocol. Specifically, the data type used to represent a keycode is a byte, which limits values to between 8 to 255 (+8 bias). It's an issue that's intended to be resolved in the X12 protocol (see Resource Limits). One workaround is to remap the keycode into the valid range ...

If you access X11 over UNIX sockets then it should "just work". Apparently UNIX domain sockets are not segregated by network namespace. Since you are getting an error, then I guess you are using TCP, not UNIX sockets. To connect to X11 with TCP, you will have to proceed the same way you would in order to access any other network service across network ...

Try enabling scroll emulation with the following commands, which work well on several models of trackpoint keyboard: dev="TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint" xinput --set-int-prop "$dev" "Evdev Wheel Emulation Axes" 8 6 7 4 5 xinput --set-int-prop "$dev" "Evdev Wheel Emulation Button" 8 2 xinput --set-int-prop "$dev" "Evdev Wheel Emulation" 8 1 If you don't like that, ...

Running an strace on the remote system where xauth is failing will show you what's tripping up xauth. For example $ strace xauth list stat("/home/sam/.Xauthority-c", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0600, st_size=0, ...}) = 0 open("/home/sam/.Xauthority-c", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_EXCL, 0600) = -1 EEXIST (File exists) rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [CHLD], [], 8) = 0 ...

When a keyboard or mouse event is generated by an application rather than by an input peripheral, that event is marked as “synthetic”. Many applications reject synthetic events. In theory, there is a security reason for that — you might run an application on your X display but under a different account or on a different machine — but X is so bad at ...

appres XTerm xterm shows all the resources read by Xterm when invoked under the name xterm. This includes both user customizations uploaded to the X server (visible with xrdb -query) and default files read on the client side by the application. The first argument is the class name (conventionally starting with an uppercase letter; you can change it by ...

X11 applications like xterm get their resources like the background colour from many places. xrdb only lists resources held by the X11 server. If you look in the man page for xterm you will find in the FILES section the names of files that are also read for resources. On my system they are /usr/share/X11/app-defaults/XTerm ...

First a misconception: any selected text is immediately sent to the clipboard Actually text is never "sent" anywhere until it is requested by a receiving application. When you select text, the application only claims the selection, which means basically that it raises a flag to say that from now on it owns it. Now on to your question: In X11 there ...

In the end I restarted the system prior to checking xkill. Shame on me, as 'xkill' seemed a more interesting solution. Tried to replicate few times since, but no avail.

I don't think the OpenBSD console supports fonts for multibyte encodings. In principle it might be possible to support them in relation to the recent drm(4) code, but I don't think anybody is working on that. You might want to ask on an OpenBSD list for an authoritative answer.
