would it be possible to write an extension (or plugin?) that would print using printer A when running some JS (eg. printA()), and print using printer B when running printB() ? i just need a yes/no answer, so that i know if i can continue thinking in this direction..
it would be enough just to switch 'default printer' setting, and use window.print() (with print_silent turned on)
aha, yes
scgtrp
can i make firefox use alt-[1-9] for switching tabs on windows rather than ctrl-[1-9]?
Grega
what i need is something like this: http://edini.net/ex.txt (its a fast sketch) would it be possible?

kbrosnan
you can't call jetpacks from html
Grega

scgtrp

Grega

what am I looking for using swftools or better yet swfdump for *.swf to download *.flv or convert or whatever....does this question make any sense? Google isn't helping me
Youtube, google, Hulu make it impossible to download movies. I'm on a crappy 768kb DSL line and I'm too cheap to upgrade. I just want to download documentaries from google and not use plugins that don't work
I was told to use wget to d/l the *.swf file. I guess I should just give up. Flash makes me very angry.
is gnash any good?

kbrosnan
not using the existing profile
auscompgeek
seems freenode took it's time in deciding that I timed out....
kbrosnan
msg nickserv ghost user password
auscompgeek
I know
but I was identified already, and it timed out before I had a chance to do so anyway...
if you are already identified, you don't need to send your password again :)
kbrosnan
ahh
auscompgeek
no unCork anymore?
         

Cork
hmm, looks like my alternative nicks are a bit messed up...
auscompgeek
lol
Cork
having different nicks on different network, messes with mircs head :/

Hi, I have a problem printing on distant cups printer.
Wipster
hi all, just a quick one I have encountered a bit of a confusing issue in FF. The same website looks different between FF in windows and FF in linux, the linux one seems to have the widths wrong on the divs
Any ideas how I can get around this?
This is useing Firefox 3.5.5 in both cases
kbrosnan
could be a differnt size because of the width of fonts, in that case install the Liberation or ms core web fonts
if the former you will need to set them as your defaul font
Wipster
ah ok thanks I'l look into that
didn;t think of that
that did it, is there a good font family that I can use that will cornform with the free OS's ?
kbrosnan
Wipster: Liberation family

shevy
when i type something in a formular, i get a dropdown list
this list is very annoying, it seems as if firefox remembers what i typed days ago
in past firefox version i could disable this in preferences, but now i dont find this option anymore :(
kbrosnan
privacy > use custom settings > un check form and search history
shakaponk: not sure, tried firefox's safe mode?
shakaponk
kbrosnan: no, how to do this?
kbrosnan: got it
looking
damn it, safe mode works

Hi, how does the DownloadHelper works? Does it grab the files (e.g. from Last.fm) from the cage or does he download it directly from the web page - so, does the hoster recocnizes that the DH is working?
Does nobody knows it?

hi is there a style for an INPUT TEXT form element which turns on spelling correction?
I know there's a global option and the right-click menu

Is there a reliable way to completely disable the ability for firefox to drift into 'offline' mode?
kbrosnan
linux?
Agrajag`
Linux And Windows
no luck with either
it's setup to access localhost on load, but if there is no network, it kicks into offline mode
kbrosnan
have a reliable wireless network connection for windows
Agrajag`
not possible
kbrosnan
on linux there is a preff
Agrajag`
only if you're using Network Manager though
which i'm not
Froolap
I know this isn't very helpful. I'm not using netowrk manager and I did have the same problem. It's fixed now. I have no clue what I did to fix it. I'm pretty sure someone in here helpped me through it though.
But at least you know that there IS a solution.
Agrajag`
lol, not totally helpful but instills hope :)
Froolap
sorry, I would be more helpful if I could.
Agrajag`
np
Froolap
in firefox.... preferences...network...settings...I have "use system proxy settings" selected.
and I'm using wpa_supplicant and dhclient to manage my wireless connection cus I got tired of network manager either prompting me for the wpa passphrase or the password for the keyring every time I booted.
Agrajag`
I switched to wicd on linux with great pleasure resulting
Froolap
smile
Yeah, learning wpa_supplicant took me a couple of weeks before I could make it fairly bullet proof.
If you decide to go the wpa_supplicant route.... look me up in #fedora and I'll help ya as I'm able. I've installed on 5 machines, so I know exactly where all the scripts need to go and what they should look like.
Not that I'm encouraging you to switch from what works for you, just offering to help with what I do know how to help with.
and for what it's worth, I have 7 wireless networks that are visable from my home. Only two of which are mine.
Agrajag`
Froolap, np, i'm pretty happy with wicd so far, and far more stable the NM
Froolap
I'll have to look into wicd as this is the first I've heard of it. :P
apparently it's not available for fedora.
yum search doesn't find it, and no man page.
I don't suppose wicd has anything to do with this, does it? http://www.wicd15.com/
Agrajag`
lol, no
and I'm pretty sure they have rpms on their site
Froolap
heh.... I found it. apparently it's an xwindows thing. won't work for me as I run network servers and need my connection up without having to log into the box and startx.
Agrajag`
No, it has a frontend thats wx but it starts at boot
also has a curses interface I think
Froolap
computer.... no keyboard, no monitor.
just neewd the network up and the services running.
Agrajag`
sorry, the wicd service starts at boot, but you can set networks as "always connect" in the frontend and the backend will manage it for you from there out
Froolap
cool
Now I know something that I used to didn't.
