    xfce screen lock on Linux Mint 18.3 

    I have Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.3 but due to a weird defect I decided to use xfce.

    In order to have screen lock working I followed these instructions and installed suckless-tools paclahe (slock utility). I think this is required because xflock4 does not realise that the cinnamon-screensaver is Mint’s version of gnome-screensaver.

    Unfortunatelly, I immediately had to google the instructions on how to unlock a screen locked by slock: it’s just a matter of typing password and pressing an enter key. slock does not have any prompt, dialog or entry box for password.

    At last, after a lot of searching I found this:

    Today I have built a tool that cleans up the calendar (ICS file) exported from Outlook 2010 to be suitable for import to Google Calendar

    It looks to me that:

    • when a recurring Outlook event instance is updated, Outlook generates 2 event entries with the same UID – one for the recurring original and another for the changed instance details. This second entry only contains the details which are different from the recurring event.
    • when importing this file into Google calendar – it imports only the modified instance details – thus often resulting in import of blank entries.

    The tool:

    • looks at the recurring event
    • copies the missing details from recurring event into a modified instance
    • removes the recurring event from the ics file

    Using library
