A list of little things that might help someone out there.
#4 Shell Script: launch VS Code for a specific folder/repository
I wanted to have an easy way to launch VS Code for specific repositories and came across the
code PATH-TO-REPO command.
This little shell script will open a specific folder/repository based on an argument given to it or based on a directory listing of the
#!/bin/bash # get param repo=$1 if [ -z "$repo" ] then # check first ls /home/USER/Repos/ # ask user for input echo -n "which repo: " read repo else echo "opening "$repo fi code /home/USER/Repos/$repo
I’ve also configured an alias for that script; simply typing
lcode REPO-NAME now opens VS Code for that folder/repository.
#3 Vue.js: handle component's click event in its parent
Use case: a component creates nothing but a
<button> with a
slot that handles its display state internally but hasn’t got any actual functionality; the handler method is defined in the parent.
In this case,
@click.native has to be used to call the method defined in the parent:
// in parent component <cButton @click.native="theMethod(praram)">Button Name</cButton>
#2 Manjaro Linux mount script: BitLocker encrypted external drive
Got a new external USB 3.0 drive and set up BitLocker encryption. Manjaro (Dolphin) couldn’t really do anything with it, kept prompting for the pwd but didn’t mount it.
I ended up writing my own mount script that works well so far:
#!/bin/bash # check first lsblk -f # ask user for input echo -n "input details (fstype bitlocker): " read device read -sp 'Magic powder: ' mgk # mount according to user input sudo fusermount -u /media/data/drive/ # unmount in case it's still mounted for some reason sudo dislocker -V /dev/$device -u$mgk -- /media/data/drive sudo mount -o loop /media/data/drive/dislocker-file /media/data/drive-mnt echo mounted drive
It lists connected block devices first (
lsblk), so it’s not hardcoded to sda/sdb in case that ever changes. Need selection of whatever mentions BitLocker, then asks for the encryption key/pwd and proceeds to mount the drive with
dislocker. Folders used in
/media/data/ need to exist before the script is executed.
#1 Manjaro Linux: .service file error when setting up KeeWeb
Installed KeeWeb on Manjaro and got the following error:
The name org.freedesktop.secrets was not provided by any .service file
