Lock Screen Complex Modification

Karabiner Elements - Lock Screen Complex Modification

This allows you to do Cmd+Shift+X at any time to trigger a screen lock.

You can actually do this natively by setting up an Automator script, but that won't work in programs that manually bind to that key combination (e.g. Slack, for strikethrough).

(Doing it with Karabiner Elements will override any existing keybind.)

The zsh theme that I use, based on robbyrussell. I was very creative when I hopped over to zsh, and named it "robbynew".

MTA:SA on macOS instructions

This does not work on macOS Catalina.

macOS Catalina removes support for 32bit software. A 64bit version of Wine does exist, but it's not easy to make 32bit software run inside 64bit Wine — at least not on macOS.

Other options include:


To answer your question, neither remove_block or insert_block alters the pgd given to it.

So after a bit of reading of the code I think I finally understand why it uses pointers^squared. I hope I haven't overexplained anything but this might help someone. Someone else pls correct me if i'm wrong.

  • It's important to remember that a PageDescriptor is not a block itself, and neither is a PageDescriptor*. Read on.
