            Bash: How would I remove the first part of a directory from a array for multiple files in a for loop?

            My question is, how would I make it where it removed the ~/.config/ part and the ~/ part for files that have them?

            Personally, I'd do it in two steps, storing the intermediate result in a separate variable:



            How do I get fish to swallow? or at least to detach itself from a program
            Asked 2020-Nov-24 at 13:50

            I want to be able to type "vlc Music/" and then have the terminal go away until i close the newly launched VLC window. I've looked in the documentation and elsewhere and couldn't find a solution. I'd be fine with the terminal staying open if I can still use it, I just don't want to have a useless window open, and using an abbreviation to launch a music player is much more preferential to using VLC's GUI after launching it with Rofi.

            Plus, if I learn how to do this, I can do the same thing for all my programs and be able to just use the terminal to launch my applications instead of needing to use Rofi all the time.

            Why doesn't GNU Stow ignore single files in main directory?
            Asked 2020-Oct-31 at 09:17

            I've added a README to my dotfile folder and since I'm managing each package with stow I'd like to ignore that. From documentation I've read that by default stow uses a preset list which includes README files. Now, this doesn't seem to work. I've also tried adding a .stow-global-ignore but same error. Even forcing with stow -nv --ignore='' * leads to nothing.

            Prevent content shrinking in awesomewm
            Asked 2020-Sep-29 at 09:50

            I'm customizing my awesome-wm taskbar and what I'm trying to achieve is :

            • have a tasklist with fixed items width, which can shrink if there is not enough space
            • have a button right after the tasklist to open a program launcher on click (rofi), this button should never shrink

            For debugging purpose, the button was replace by the red textbox

            This is how it looks when there is only few items, exactly what I want :

            When there is a lot of clients, the tasklist items shrink as expected, but the textfield too :

            here is my complete rc.lua, which is mainly the same as the default one :

            Setting keybind / hotkey for rofi on KDE
            Asked 2020-Apr-23 at 08:55

            I'm trying to setup a keybind for running rofi -show combi without having to type it in my terminal (which works fine).

            Setting up a custom shortcut via System Settings -> Shortcuts -> Custom Shortcuts does not seem to do anything:

            • Trigger: Meta+W
            • Command/URL: rofi -show combi

            I'm running kubuntu 18.04 and rofi is installed via apt.




            Answered 2020-Apr-23 at 08:55

            I've got a workaround.

            Since I'm using guake as my main terminal, I'm just making it open a new tab, show rofi and exit the tab afterwards.
