This time I will show you my desktop, it's not perfect but I'm productive with it.
Let's start with a clean workspace
As you can see it looks pretty simple, a top bar with the information and a clean desktop. The bar you see on top is i3bar, the content in the bar is provided by a shell script I made.
As you may noticed I use a tilling window manager, i3. There's a floating window with screenfetch with some details on my configuration.
I live in the terminal and I also like to read my feeds there.
It's far from finished and certanly far from perfect but it's pretty usable right now.
The feeds can be organized by categories and you can switch through the menus with h,j,k,l just like in vim.
Hey guys, today I faced a problem, I wanted my new /var/www files to be owned by
www-data user and
www-data group, sure I can
chown manually every time I create new files, but that wasn't the solution I was looking for.
I think ACL might be a possible solution but I know nothing about that and I needed a fast solution.
I'm running some bots on a virtual machine, these bots crawl some websites then write the captured content inside
You may not want to apply the contents of this article on a production server, the apache user (www-data) should only have read access to the website content, this way if apache or your website have some vulnerability the website content and the server will be more "secure".
I love Virtual Machines, they are useful and with them you can do whatever you want without cluttering your main system.
I like to keep my main os as simple as possible, if I want some server software I usually create a Virtual Machine for that.
My workflow to start working with web development was something like this:
I had an alias to mount the /var/www directory but that isn't enough, I still had to open VirtualBox, start the virtual machine and I had to keep the Virtual Machine window open.
It's a shame that we don't still have a decent PDF reader in Linux, I was in need of a PDF reader that let me copy and paste without messing all the formatting (the Firefox PDF reader didn't worked well) and I didn't want to install a PDF reader with lots of dependencies, I like things simple, that's why I don't use any Desktop Environment, just i3-wm, simple applications, some scripts I've been made and other scripts that I find online.
I've tried XPDF, it's a decent PDF reader but the copy and paste operation is a little weird.
I was tired of PDF readers and I needed a solution, that's when I found poppler
I had a Raspberry Pi laying around I today I decided to install Arch Linux on it with a light and simple Window Manager.
I also use i3wm on my laptop so I've used the same configuration with only small changes, reloaded i3wm and surprise:
It was an ugly mess, I found it strange because the terminal colors were fine, the same for GUI apps, only i3 had that weird behavior.
After some research I managed to find a solution, just add this to
