As for last solution being properly tested, I don't know.

I opened "$HOME/.config/peppermint-control-center/xbindkeys.conf"

then I scrolled to the last line to add this:

"echo -n | xsel -n -i; pkill xbindkeys; xdotool click 2; xbindkeys -f $HOME/.config/peppermint-control-center/x$
    b:2 + Release"

...but it was already in there. I didn't think entering in there again would help, so I closed the file and then ran:

"xbindkeys -f $HOME/.config/peppermint-control-center/xbindkeys.conf" like you asked.

Then I hit the scroll wheel button and it emptied the contents of the clipboard into the terminal window; so it hasn't been fixed. Did I miss something?

::) It's kind of nice you can do this, but at the same time rather scarry...
...anyone with physical access could do it  :(

Wouldn't stop them even if it was impossible to change password .. they'd just access via a LiveUSB (and maybe chroot).

That's what encryption is for ;)

If someone has local access to ANY PC with ANY OS and time, you shouldn't consider ANYTHING on it secure .. even encryption won't hold them at bay forever but hopefully long enough for you to implement mitigations.



Well maybe James Bond has something that nukes a five mile radius if you don't submit a quantum encrypted DNA key for analysis prior to drive access (or upon tampering) .. but for the rest of us....

Software & Applications / Re: Variety wallpaper changer resizes images
« Last post by PCNetSpec on July 15, 2019, 04:03:11 pm »
Okay it looks like the Variety website may be incorrect.
(the code for scaling looks hard coded in variety to me)

Try this...

Run:
Code: [Select]
gksudo xed /usr/share/variety/scripts/set_wallpaper
find the line that reads
Code: [Select]
        nitrogen --set-zoom-fill --save "$WP" 2> /dev/null
and change it to read
Code: [Select]
        nitrogen --set-centered --save "$WP" 2> /dev/null
SAVE the file.

Test.

Does this happen if you scale your wallpapers so they have the same resolution of your screen?
Have you tried feh?

PCNetSpec, thanks for that info. I believe that is what was being referred to. I did change that setting to Centered, which is the way my Peppermint 8 was set up, but it didn't stop the resizing (none of the settings do). The Peppermint 8 machine is running Variety 0.6.0, but that version won't run on P10 due to dependencies.  Changing the picture options to None only prevents pictures from working at all. I was hoping that None meant no resizing. I'm still looking for a wallpaper changer that doesn't resize.

Anything patched for spectre and meltdown seems to have issues on this machine...  ::)
4.4.0-83 is, as mentioned working as it should;
4.4.0-154, latest auto-updated on this series doesn't boot;
4.4.0-185, latest from mainline on this series doesn't boot;
4.14.133 installs, obviously after manually pulling libssl-1.1, and boots but, it has issues with ACPI;
4.15.0-54, boots but, with wrong screen resolution.

Anyway, the system is now back on 4.4.0-83 and I've stopped kernel updates, everything else will still be rolling in as usual.

Not the solution I was looking for, but I won't bother with it anymore. Even if I get another kernel to work, there's always the risk that a coming update will screw things up and I won't be around to fix it.

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
xinput --list-props "Microsoft Microsoft 3-Button Mouse with IntelliEye(TM)"
and can you answer my other question too .. did you TEST the last solution properly ?

Welcome back :)

Did you keep a home folder from a previous install ?

and are you saying nothing shows up on the desktop AT ALL .. so if you put a test file in
~/Desktop
it doesn't appear on the desktop ?
