Re: ClipIt - Ignore Password Managers?

skidoo, thanks for that information. I tried out copyQ but failed to find the setting. Anyway, that's a LOT of clipboard manager, much more than I require. For me, I think the best solution is no clipboard manager. :covereyes: There's a forum post about the password issue in clipit issues forum: htt...

Re: ClipIt - Ignore Password Managers?

Fehlix wrote Better don't run clipit if you use a pw-manager. Even if your pw-manager is clearing the clipboard after some seconds it would have already copied into the history of clipit Furthermore, if clipit is put in offline mode or killed, when it is resumed, it loads up anything remaining in th...

Re: wait for terminal in a script

Thanks for the repies! @Adrian Does that work for you? Here, "terminal terminated?" appears immediately xfce4-terminal -x bash -ic "sleep 10" ; echo "terminal terminated?" @ fehlix Your script certainly does what I want, and I love the Star Trek theme, but I'm not sure it's light years neater ;) Ser...

wait for terminal in a script

I have a script which should open an interactive terminal, then wait for it to close before continuing. Using xfce4-terminal -x bash -ic "command1" command2 command2 executes immediately. The only reasonable solution I have found is to insert while [[ -n $(pgrep command1) ]] ; do sleep 1 ; done befo...

Which version of power manager? (xfce4-power-manager --version)

to watch videos, but since the upgrade to power manager 1.6.1 I find that presentation mode works as intended.

Good wifi neighbor

When I scan wifi, I see as many as 25 stations on 2.4 GHz band, 2 of which often give stronger signals than mine. I try to choose my channel to minimize interference, although it's not entirely clear how to do this. The majority of my neighbors are on 1, 6 and 11, but there are stations on several o...
