Dark Themes for OpenBox

Funny how time seems to just fly by.  Below is a list of themes for OpenBox that I created nearly a year ago and I’ve been meaning to post them on Box-Look.org all this time.  The one called “Studio-2” is the theme that I primarily use on a daily basis, and “Sage” comes in as…


Image Downloader v.2 – Download Linked Images Quickly and Easily From a Webpage

A request has been made to make a more simplified version of the imageDownloader.  This has prompted the release of imageDownloader-v.2. Version 1: Version 1 provided various options: (1) print a list of hyperlinks contained within a web page and dump them into a text file; (2) download images that a web page is linking…


Script for Downloading Images and Links From a Web Page

There are occasions when an individual might wish to download any or all of the images that may be linked from a web page, such as when there is a thumbnail image that is linked to a larger version of the same image (view an example of one such page).  Perhaps too, an individual might…


Installing Amazon’s MP3 Downloader on Ubuntu 10.04 and Debian Squeeze

Making Life Easier With Scripts For Nautilus

In my previous post, I talked about how you can use Nautilus and the nautilus-image-converter as tools for resizing and rotating your images.  Although PCManFM is my preferred file manager, and I often use Thunar if I am bulk renaming files, I keep coming back to Nautilus for file management, network file browsing, image resizing/rotation,…

Although I’ve been meaning to share this information with you for some time, it was a comment in this post that recently prompted me to get busy writing.  Someone asked the question, why use Nautilus in OpenBox?  Gnome is the desktop manager that I use at work, and Nautilus is the file manager that I…


Resizing VirtualBox Session Window (Screen Size)

Note: This post is mostly a “note to self”, but I thought that others might also benefit from this information too. Lately I’ve been using VirtualBox to test out various Linux distros, and to re-familiarize myself with the otherwise less familiar… Having rooted myself for some time now in Debian-based systems, I thought that it…
