Measure Pixels With Kruler

Written by Matt on March 15, 2008 – 8:09 am -

As a web developer, measuring pixels and colors is important. Fortunately, Kruler handles both of these wonderfully. Not only does it have 4 different sizes, you can also change the orientation of the ruler. The ruler itself is even customizable, allowing you to change it’s color and font. Furthermore, as I stated above, Kruler allows you to determine colors. I now know that one of the colors in my wallpaper is #18488A.

KDE-Improve Your Lock Screen Button!

Written by Matt on February 17, 2008 – 9:36 am -

    Most Linux users will probably admit to having a “Lock Screen” button. Why? Because it is very useful to be able to slide your pointer to the top right of your screen and click a button before stepping out of the room for a few moments. Although both KDE and Gnome have an “applet” for locking the screen, creating a custom one will be more efficient. Even when you lock the screen, the monitor still stays on, and probably will for at least a few hours. By creating your own button, you can turn off your monitor and lock the screen at the exact same time! Right click one of your panels, click on Add Application to Panel–>Add Non-KDE Application. Add whatever Button title, Icon, and Description, but for the Executable, place this:

sleep 1 && xset dpms force off && kdesktop_lock -forcelock
