First go through the ALSA checklist:
1) add yourself to the 'audio' group (log out and log in again) , as root add username audio, where username is your user's name
2) use alsamixer and unmute channels and raise levels (also try muting some channels & toggle jack sense)

--$ alsamixer <Enter> {You will be able to control the volumes and balance through the keyboard.}

For KDE
Press: Alt+F2
Then type: /usr/bin/kmix {Click 'Run'.}...

Surfraw - Shell Users' Revolutionary Front Rage Against the World Wide Web

Are you tired of clicking the search box in Firefox to do searches or changing the search engine. Then surfraw is definitely for you. Get rid of the searchbox and use Surfraw.

This is all I do to use Firefox rather than Iceweasel.
1) download Firefox
2) extract to my /home/Downloads
3) symlink plugins by doing:
Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins /home/craig/Downloads/firefox/plugins
4) open iceweasel with iceweasel -profilemanager and create a profile for Firefox
5) copy my iceweasel profile to the new firefox profile
6) create a text file called Firefox.desktop

my Firefox.desktop:

Irssi the irc client that rocks

Posted 06-26-2010 at 05:42 PM by craigevil (craigevil's random words of wisdom)

Irssi is a terminal based IRC client for UNIX systems. It also supports SILC, XMPP and ICB protocols via plugins.

Even the dpkg bot in #debian agrees irssi rocks:
<dpkg> i guess irssi is the best <IRC> client ever. "aptitude install irssi" and read http://www.irssi.org/documentation/startup . See also http://irssi.org/documentation/faq. http://www.irssi.org/

Simple easy script to setup irssi for you: Irssi Config Generator http://www.matthew.ath.cx/programs/irssiconfig...

As most people are aware Adobe has stopped support for Flash on 64bit, no one knows for how long. Do not use the 64bit flash beta, it has major security problems.
