HOWTO: Set up Modsecurity on Debian 7

Posted 06-10-2013 at 07:30 PM by Rearden888
Updated 06-10-2013 at 07:43 PM by Rearden888 (typos)

There are many places online that explain how to install and perform initial set up for modsecurity on Apache. However, I haven't found anywhere that shows how to do it with the standard Debian packages and that respects the normal apt update process.

Lubuntu conky and compton

Posted 07-20-2014 at 09:13 PM by t1nm@n (Tux and Me)

Getting a good desktop with effects like shadows and stuff is the challenge here. After some fiddling around (conky doesnot play well with compton), I was able to get a working setup.

1. Installing compton
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:richardgv/compton
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install compton
2. Open /home/<user>/.config/compton.conf, create one if it doesnot exist. Put these in
# Shadow
shadow = true;			# Enabled
