My Favorite Monospace Font

After having used Monofur as my monospace font of choice for programming and the Linux console for a couple of years, I guess I can officially state that it's my favorite monospace font. It is easy to read but a the same time has a certain European flair that makes it pleasant to look at. Check it out!

TweetDeck on 64 bit Arch Linux

When trying to run TweetDeck on my Arch installation running OpenBox I kept getting the following error. cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

In order to get this working I had to create the following script to start the application.

export GTK_PATH=/usr/lib32/gtk-2.0
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/lib32/usr/lib/
linux32 tweetdeck

In addition I had to install the lib32-gnome-keyring package as well. Heh, I don't even like Twitter, I just couldn't resist trying to figure out why I couldn't get it working!
