Howto assign specific application to open with after download
Fraxtil
Is there a way to force Firefox 3.5 to ignore GTK themes? (on Ubuntu 9.10 if relevant)
Elmaron
what do you mean by that?
e.g. what do you want it to use instead?
the default GTK look instead of the user customized GTK theme?
Fraxtil
If that's possible, yes. I use a dark GTK theme and it causes input boxes to be much darker than they should be.
Elmaron
Fraxtil: that is possible
basically, the gtkrc is the center of all happenings, afaik
that is, you can download a cleanlooks gtkrc from somewhere
and then set some environment variable to the path of it when starting up firefox. there is an env var that affects the gtkrc file the GTK apps will load
now you just need to have the respective gtkrc file at hand and you need to know the name of the env var
wait a second
Fraxtil: http://eloxoph.com/gtkrc
that's a clearlooks gtkrc
or cleanlooks, whatever is the GTK theme engine's name (the other of clear/cleanlooks is the respective qt counterpart)
Fraxtil: still around?
the gtk+ env var is apparently GTK2_RC_FILES, just checked on library.gnome.org
so save that gtkrc somewhere and then try "./firefox GTK2_RC_FILES=/path/to/that/gtkrc"
or just "firefox" when you're not in the directory where the binary resides
"firefox GTK2_RC_FILES=/path/to/gtkrc"
and see if that gives you a default clean/clearlooks styled firefox
Fraxtil
Yeah, sorry
Elmaron
Fraxtil: does it work?
and np for being afk :) I'm doing that all the time, lol
Fraxtil
I'm about to try it
it just tries to open a url called www.gtk2_rc_files=.com/path
but I found a very similar method that works, so thanks for the pointer about gtk2_rc_files :)

does anyone know of a plugin-watching-plugin which provides more infomation than https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7055 -- which just has a binary "this plugin is using lots of cpu" display.
i especially have problems when i'm offline
         

auscompgeek
that isn't a plugin
udp11
Hahahhahah hFIREFOX FIREFOX Is awesome, I run firefox on fluxbox, killed X and now I try to start firefox again, it keeps bullsh*ting me that it is already opened!!! I look with top, and no there is no such process, ps -a nope, there is no firefox
Also XMMS doesn't play music because Firefox-flash stole it's audio source
how the hell can I shutdown firefox???
without rebooting
auscompgeek
you didn't let Firefox close properly
udp11
nope
But there is no firefox process
auscompgeek
don't you mean firefox-bin?
udp11
nope, firefox :)
auscompgeek
firefox.sh is a script
udp11
nope, no firefox.sh, firefo
x
auscompgeek
which then runs firefox-bin
s/\.sh//
udp11
nvm, there is no firefox-bin in the top or ps neither
auscompgeek
man, I confuse myself...
if you look in the profile, you'll see the answer
udp11
In what profile auscompgeek
auscompgeek
if the parent.lock file exists, that means either Firefox is running, or you didn't let Firefox close properly.
the Firefox profile of course
udp11
auscompgeek, yes I know, so can I close firefox or do I need to reboot whole pc
auscompgeek
it *was* closed in the first place...
udp11
so what now auscompgeek?
auscompgeek
delete parent.lock?
udp11
that worked, thanks auscompgeek
auscompgeek
np...
Digicrime
hello
         

auscompgeek
hello Digicrime
Digicrime
how're you
bubsy
any known issue to man that firefox 3.x sometimes forget its state of tabs, then it comes with the message "Well, this is embarrassing?"
rather, what can the issue be?
it happens every now and then, which irritates me.
then I can click "Restore tabs"... I mean, I can sense an irony. It's like "Here, I deleted your log. Sorry. But click here to restore it."
auscompgeek
it didn't delete anything
it must have crashed...
DiegoMax

kbrosnan

DiegoMax
yah i know, its just for testing a website that im working on, client wants firefox 2 compatibility somehow...
thanks kbrosnan

Hello
Any reason why Firefox won't render Hebrew script from local files?
(Worked yesterday)
Anyone there?
Hello again
white_magic
hi
Josh01
Anyone here able to help me?
white_magic
anyone here very familiary with noscript?
i want to block scripts on imdb.com (tired of all the ads) but i wanna be able to see movie trailers
i went into about:config and entered imdb.com into the noscript blacklist part
Josh01
adblock plus?
white_magic
i have ADP
but it doesn't block all ads..
Josh01
Right click on them to add them?
noscript blocking the whole domain will make nothing work
white_magic
hmmm
you know, i just added imdb.com to ADP's blacklist and it disabled all scripts
unbelievable.. like plain html..
Josh01
haha
white_magic
i dont get it
i guess i can block individual elements.. *sigh*
not sure why there isn't a way to block an entire site except for when you have http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay*
Josh01
I can't help, sorry
I can't even get any answers on my own mysterious problems
Every time I try to get help, it comes to nothing
So, don't expect anything,..
white_magic
you have problems with ad blocking?
Josh01
nope
white_magic
oh
what is your problem, if i may ask?
Josh01
Hebrew script won't display from local files
But the same files, unchanged, worked yesterday
white_magic
that's quite beyond me, sorry
Josh01
Seems to be beyond everybody...
white_magic
you know, i'm sure there is a solution
Josh01
No likely
Not*
It works in Epiphany though! haha
white_magic
so if you view a webpage like from a web server it would work fine, but if you download the html files and other pertinent ones, it won't render correctly?
what is epiphany?
Josh01
Gnome's web browser
I have been creating files with Yiddish text on my computer
Not saving them
And they worked fine until today
white_magic
maybe it's just your installation of firefox?
Josh01
I can't see why
When it worked yesterday...
white_magic
you never know
Josh01
I do know
white_magic
you can download portable firefox and test this theory out
Josh01
It worked yesterday
I changed nothing
white_magic
well strange things happen.. but i see what you're saying
Josh01
Neither by updates or settings
So, I can't see what it could possibly be
white_magic
Josh01
Those run on windows?
In that case they won't run for me because I'm on Linux
white_magic
oh... you're right
yea at the bottom it mentions WINE though..
that's a lame solution for something temporary like this
Josh01
yuck
white_magic
lol
Josh01
hehe
Never use Wine...it's lousy
white_magic
yea agreed
well it worked with some apps like utorrent.. but computer games.. ughhhh
Josh01
No chance lol
white_magic
nope
Josh01
I don't play games anymore...
white_magic
i cant believe some people still defending linux gaming
well you cant!
Josh01
haha
white_magic
lol
you can try.. but it gets old
Josh01
Well there are a few, but yeah it's mostly nonexistant
But I'm no longer particularly interested in gaming
white_magic
the only way anything can happen is if game devs started developing for opengl and not dx
Josh01
I use my computer for studying mostly
white_magic
ahh that happens too of course
actually in that case, linux is just fine
Josh01
If I want to play some Empire: Total War, I'll dual boot :p
white_magic
there is nothing it really can't do, other than gaming
yeah.. so many people dual boot, it's crazy
Josh01
Agreed
white_magic
and yet - still not mainstream
not even close
Josh01
I've been trying to do a few things lately to make my life easier
Instead they've made it harder lol
white_magic
like what
Josh01
Bloody computers :D
Adding a Yiddish keyboard layout
white_magic
aha
Josh01
Should work, but doesn't
The system is so fu*ked up haha
white_magic
sounds very specific
Josh01
Yes
white_magic
but hey.. you speak english...
it's not the end of the world
Josh01
Not the end of the world
But I'm a language person
It's my passion
white_magic
aha
Josh01
I speak English by default
white_magic
i write with english keyboard layout in my native language
Josh01
Which language?
white_magic
lithuanian
Josh01
Ah ok
Cool language
white_magic
just use sh or ch and other workarounds for letters that dont exist
Josh01
On my list to learn :D
white_magic
oh you hear it?
haha good luck
it's very hard for non-natives to learn
Josh01
Thanks :D
Nah
white_magic
unless you're as gifted as josh01 of course :D
Josh01
Every language is easy to learn
;)
Just takes time and the right approach
white_magic
ehhh.. and it takes maintenance
use it or lose it
Josh01
Not hard for me
My great grandfather spoke it
white_magic
haha i wonder how much help that is
Josh01
He was born just near Vilnius
white_magic
cool
so i supposed it's in your genes or something
Josh01
He also spoke Yiddish, Polish, Russian, German and English
