A little tip

I had a little bit trouble reading the output of 'yaourt -Ss' as the list of results show the same color for package names and description. So I scouted a bit and it is of course possible to use your own custom color with an environment variable.

Perfect for setting as a alias in your ~/.{z,ba}shrc

-----------------------------
YAOURT_COLORS='other=1;30:pkg=0;33' yaourt -Ss <search string>
-----------------------------

Follow the link for more info about PQ_COLORS and the supported keys.

I just updated and some extensions seem to be disabled (probably did not get ported to the new version) and the notification area shows a question mark instead of the wifi signal. Not sure if a bug or a feature :) It seems fine. I did not have any driver/GDM issues.

Hello friends! Today I will share my package and configs for Logitech G19.
First you need to install xf86-video-fbdev. Next you need build package g19-module and install it. Сopy xorg.g19.conf to the X11 folder, g19.service to the /etc/systemd/system/ and enable the service with command:
# systemctl enable g19.service
g19bind is a copy of rebind file with my settings of colors for keyboard. You can change colors in this file, also you can change them in /sys/class/leds/g19_0: color :bl/brightness where color can be red, green, blue. Values range from 0 to 255. Like this:
# echo 155 > /sys/class/leds/g19_0:green:bl/brightness
I use Openbox so I've added this command in autostart to start the second instance of X server. .xinit.g19 is a xinit file that launches Openbox with another startup file.
# xinit ~/.xinitrc.g19 -- /usr/bin/X :1 -config xorg.g19.conf -novtswitch -sharevts -audit 0 vt8 -dpi 72 &
To switch keyboard/mouse focus to the LCD screen, you will need x2x. Install x2x-git from AUR and add command in autostart after xinit command.
# x2x -south -from :0 -to :1 &
To hide cursor you can use unclutter.
# unclutter -display :1 -root -idle 1 &
Now you can run any application on LCD screen.

I would like to thanks https://github.com/CMoH/lg4l for fork lg4l module.

They would work if you update linux version. In my package I removed modules for G110, G13 and G15. I changed rebind file and install in /usr/bin/ directory as g19bind. What about lg4l? Russo79 created a gnome15 project http://www.russo79.com/gnome15. But I use old module, because it's a minimalistic way for me.

Web Based Photo Gallery.
Any suggestions for something I can install on my home web server that:

- Lets me browse my collection of photos.
- Photos are all sorted into folders with meaningful names, so I just want something that lets me navigate directories and displays clickable thumbnails.
- Displays EXIF data and as a bonus lets me edit it.

I don't care about creating users/groups. Apart from not allowing anyone to delete a photo security isn't a concern as it's all on my home network.

There are gazillions of web gallery apps out there, which are either way overkill for my needs, or don't do the one simple thing of allowing browsing directories.

Yes, I could probably write my own, but somebody must already have invented this wheel:)

107,18 MiB of download, 713,52 MiB of installed files and only -0,07 MiB of net update size, all because libreoffice's 15 packages went from 4.2.3-1 to 4.2.3-2.

Let me guess, this is for fixing the woes in the UI?

OpenSSL Security Advisory [07 Apr 2014] ========================================
TLS heartbeat read overrun (CVE-2014-0160) ==========================================
 A missing bounds check in the handling of the TLS heartbeat extension can be used to reveal up to 64k of memory to a connected client or server. Only 1.0.1 and 1.0.2-beta releases of OpenSSL are affected including 1.0.1f and 1.0.2-beta1. Thanks for Neel Mehta of Google Security for discovering this bug and to Adam Langley <agl@chromium.org> and Bodo Moeller <bmoeller@acm.org> for preparing the fix. Affected users should upgrade to OpenSSL 1.0.1g. Users unable to immediately upgrade can alternatively recompile OpenSSL with -DOPENSSL_NO_HEARTBEATS. 1.0.2 will be fixed in 1.0.2-beta2.

This method for conducting resource use analysis came from a discussion on the #archlinux-tu IRC channel and the testing was conducted use Arch Linux. So the results maybe of interest here.

Very nice analysis, i for instance use KDE.
I've also used other DE's and while i like low memory footprint, KDE gives me the best desktop experience. Ultimately, as of most linux discussions, its a simple matter of choice. (:

Your assistance is appreciated.
 
I've pushed MATE 1.8 to the Arch Linux [community-staging] repository. I'd appreciate if you can test that upgrades from MATE 1.6 are working properly and that clean installs of MATE 1.8 are also fine. Some of the Arch/MATE community have already reported all is good but I'd just like few more reports before I pull the trigger and move MATE 1.8 to [community].

I've seriously contemplated enabling the [staging] repos ([testing] just doesn't feel bleeding-edge enough, you know?) but I have never gotten around to it. Either way, I'm glad the upgrade went fine!
