    [ubuntu] Re: priting from dosemu to CUPS

    just to clean this up: further research unveiled that this P1102w relies on the host for most processing -- I guess what we used to call a "win" printer. there was some evidence updating the firmware...

    [ubuntu] priting from dosemu to CUPS

    for ten years I printed happily to an HP 1300 laser printer, which alas became unusable. yesterday I replaced it with a LaserJet P1102w, which works fine in LibreOffice, Firefox, etc.

    however, it...
  3. Re: HowTo: Use the unity launcher quicklist for snippets

    pleasant dreams. Vaphell's version works perfectly. thanks once again Stinkeye, and Vaphell.
  4. Re: HowTo: Use the unity launcher quicklist for snippets

    no joy.

    again, what puzzles me is that


    sh -c "head -1 ~/.snippets-launcher/snippets.txt | tail -1 | tr -d '\n' | xclip -i -selection clipboard"

    works perfectly.
  5. Re: HowTo: Use the unity launcher quicklist for snippets

    couple notes:

    1) the "Date" snippet works fine -- as things are configured now, to middle-mousebutton

    [ubuntu] Re: Thunderbird/Lightning mess

    I am now having the same problem: only window controls are close and minimize, and nothing is up on the Unity status bar. did you come across a fix?

    I guess there's a chance maybe the latest...
  8. Re: HowTo: Use the unity launcher quicklist for snippets

    not sure I made myself clear -- the launcher object no longer seems to be working AT ALL. whereas the original version was capturing snippets for middle-click pasting, in this version nothing is...
  9. Re: HowTo: Use the unity launcher quicklist for snippets

    thanks for the quick response. not quite there yet. I cleaned out the directory, copied in the new files, and chmoded. out of the box, middle-mousebutton pressing shows the clipboard hasn't...
  10. Re: HowTo: Use the unity launcher quicklist for snippets

    I had chmod'd the scripts, so I'm sure that wasn't the problem; I made the change you suggested.

    so now, okay -- 99% of the time I use Ctrl-V to paste, and when I don't, I use [mouse button]/menu,...
  11. Re: HowTo: Use the unity launcher quicklist for snippets

    thanks very much for this -- I have been using xclip in Midnight Commander to similar purpose.


    unfortunately it does not work for me. all the items in snippets.txt display quite handsomely, but...
