I love sharing the excitement and frustration of learning #Linux things with friends. Sometimes it's a challenge. But the thrill of success when it happens is heaps amazing.
Linux is my problematic girlfriend.
#Linux #MATE Query
My compy crashed and had to reboot, after which Linux (systemd?) silently asked (no debug dump) if I wanted to let it try to fix errors. After, yes, it booted up fine...
Except ~/.config/MATE/stickynotes-applet.xml has been wiped clean, without my recent compy notes! Any ideas how and where to restore that file? It's never done this before.
#Linux users of #Lynx and #Elinks who aren't adept at debugging code might note:
I had trouble with https after updating Lynx. It turned out to be an easy fix. GNU TLS libraries weren't installed or weren't talking correctly. I added the dev lib and a few others. I believe the dev did it.
Elinks and Lynx still crash sometimes, so if anyone has input on this, please ping me.
I think the Terminal or Lynx is confuzzled by the fonts, not knowing to substitute my standard terminal font for the emoji font.
That's a stark guess. But it makes sense.
I have seen no terminal with selectivity of per-character font. Or other programs, for that matter. #Linux registration of fonts for certain languages would be a nifty notion.
