misc. ubuntu things

I was always a bit disappointed that bash history saves  to disk only the session that is closed last.
Turns out there is a way to fix that:

vi ~/.bashrc
export PROMPT_COMMAND='history -a; history -r'

I have a vmware ubuntu 11.04 (natty narwhal) setup.
things I investigated today:

  • screenlets and digitalclock ("dark clean" theme)
    • digitalclock appears glitchy -- artifact of vmware?
    • themes for the cairo-clock
  • equinox set of themes
  • elegant-gnome theme (was not able to get this to install)
  • wallpaper-clocks
  • orta theme
Currently settled at Dusk with transparent menubars
