Techtimejourney is back from hiatus and new version of Crosslinker FM released

Techtimejourney returns back to action after a hiatus. Here is a new version of Crosslinker FM. The code is a bit cleaner and the file-manager is now more short key focused than before. Verbosity has also been increased. The Outlook has gone through changes as well. As a result GUI is now cleaner.

The file-manager is available at my Github. Finally, here is a screenshot.

Linux Containers (LXC) tutorial

Docker is a big deal these days. However, it is not the only game in town. Today, we are going to take a look at Linux containers, which is one alternative to Docker.

This tutorial has been composed with Debian 10. Notice that I am not using systemd(no systemctl commands).

Openbox and gnome-control-center

As I am trying new ideas for PostX GNU/Linux 0.6, I decided to see how is gnome-control-center working in Debian Buster. Being an Openbox user, I encountered some issues. Documenting them below in hopes that they can help others.

First time launching gnome-control-center from terminal:

gnome-control-center:24141): dbind-WARNING **: 16:23:03.199: Error retrieving accessibility bus address: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.a11y.Bus was not provided by any .service files
ERROR:../shell/cc-shell-model.c:458:cc_shell_model_set_panel_visibility: assertion failed: (valid)

Now, lets install one package that is needed:

sudo apt-get install at-spi2-core

If I run gnome-control-center again I get this:

ERROR:../shell/cc-shell-model.c:458:cc_shell_model_set_panel_visibility: assertion failed: (valid)

Previously this solution used to work – but it is no longer valid on its own. Doing it anyway just to make sure.

sudo rm -r .local .cache

And finally, exporting GNOME as environment variable. After this: gnome-control-center command should work as expected.


I did not go further on my tests this time. I discovered that gnome-control-center integation to Openbox would require some more work. Still, I might integrate gnome-control-center more fully to PostX Gnu/Linux 0.6.
