    Project mention: How can i launch rofi on super+space shortcut? | | 2021-04-12

I wanted to have this on super + space, but in sxhkd putting a line rofi -no-config -no-lazy-grab -show drun -modi drun -theme ~/.config/polybar/shapes/scripts/rofi/launcher.rasi (which is in file which is launched when app menu module on polybar is clicked) doesn't work.

  • GitHub repo minideb

    A small image based on Debian designed for use in containers

    Project mention: Minimal base images roundup | | 2021-02-21

    Ah, yeah it's a little more confusing because it's using the debootstrap tool ( to build the container image filesystem. You can see all the gory logic here: and It's a bunch of shell scripting that's not really meant to be interpreted by anyone that isn't a debian expert though, so don't feel bad if it looks really confusing. I think the overall thing is that minideb installs the absolute bare minimum system with debootstrap and even strips out a few essential packages like trusted SSL CAs, etc. If you need anything (including those essential packages) you're meant to just install_packages install them--it's all using the same apt sources and packages as debian.

  • GitHub repo i3-gaps-deb

    Tool to create and install Debian (or Ubuntu) packages of i3-gaps.

    I've had to configure my new workstation recently and grew tired of having to build i3-gaps locally (even though maestrogerardo/i3-gaps-deb does a great job). Because I'm lazy, I've created barnumbirr/i3-gaps-debian to automatically build i3-gaps for Debian Stable, Testing and Unstable. I'll try to update and upload packages for every new release but don't hesitate to ping me if I forget. Please give the packages a spin (and the repository a star if you can ;) ).
