Gnome Wheater App

I’m trying Gnome 3.10, and it’s awesome! Perhaps when leave my computer for some time it freezes on the protection screen, where we have a clock and arrows indicating that you can swap to get the login screen.

To restart it you need to get into a terminal:

ctrl + alt + F1, login

so you can kill the frozen process using:

pkill -kill gnome-shell


Configuring keyboard layout on Fluxbox

This command works but just at the actual session:

# setxkbmap -model abnt2 -layout br -variant abnt2

To keep the layout every time you start your system you need write the keyboard options

at a file if you use Xorg window system try this:


Section “InputClass”

        Identifier “keyboard”

        MatchIsKeyboard “yes”

        Option “XkbLayout” “br”

        Option “XkbVariant” “abnt2”

        Option “XkbOptions” “”

Search Bash History File

Don’t you remember of a command line that you used some hours ago? I found a simple way to do that:

Just a little, but helpful, tip from the Garrett LeSage’s website. search typed history at a bash prompt, hit control-r and start typing a command you used previously. It doesn’t have to start with what is typed, as it returns matches which contain the searched text.

Hit control-r again (while searching), and it will jump back further in history and search with the same text…
