Configuration files for a bunch of Unix apps I use regularly.

Basic setup

git clone .dotfiles

Make a backup of any existing files:

mkdir -p backup
mv .bash .bash_profile .bashrc .gitconfig .inputrc .screenrc .vimrc backup/

Symlink the config files into your home directory:

ln -sf ~/.dotfiles/{.bash,.bash_profile,.bashrc,.gitconfig,.inputrc,,.screenrc,.vimrc} ~/
ln -sf ~/.dotfiles/.gitignore_global ~/.gitignore
ln -sf ~/.dotfiles/.ssh/config ~/.ssh/
mkdir ~/.config/environment.d && ln -sf ~/.dotfiles/.config/environment.d/* ~/.config/environment.d/

Emacs setup

Clone the dotemacs repository:

git clone ~/.emacs.d

Font setup

Symlink the font config:

mkdir -p ~/.config/fontconfig
ln -s ~/.dotfiles/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf ~/.config/fontconfig/

Firefox setup


privacy.donottrackheader.enabled = true
privacy.trackingprotection.enabled = true

Make the URL bar more stupid:

browser.fixup.alternate.enabled = false
browser.urlbar.trimURLs = false
keyword.enabled = false

Blank home and new tab page:

browser.startup.homepage = about:blank
browser.newtabpage.enabled = false
browser.newtabpage.enhanced = false

Send DNS through SOCKS proxy:

network.proxy.socks_remote_dns = true

Graphics acceleration, reduces tearing in video playback:

layers.acceleration.force-enabled = true

Don't prompt to reset profile if unused for a little while:

browser.disableResetPrompt = false

Open links from external apps in new window: = 2
