Time (actually I did that early 2014) to update CyanogenMod on my my Samsung Galaxy GT I9000 (the first install I did here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ogenmod-35043/)

Hint for later use: adb - Use phone-terminal on your computer.

Gnome and Debian Jessie

My configuration changes and wishlist for Gnome 3 (currently 3.14):

Install
  • gnome-shell-extensions (Gnome recommends to only install extensions from https://extensions.gnome.org, but no packaged extensions.)
  • gnome-system-tools (many things, e.g. GUI for user and groups management. IMO this package should be suggested or recommended by some other gnome package more prominently (currently only gnome-nettool suggests it and lxde (!) recommends it).
  • gnome-tweak-tool (the basic "Advanced

  1. Make your changes in /etc/default/grub:
    • Add kernel options to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT. In my current case:
      Code:
      GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet video.use_native_backlight=0"
    • Always boot the last selected kernel (instead of the first one):
      Code:
      GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
      GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=true
    • Disable grub showing up at all per default (hold "shift" to show it anyway):
      Code:
      GRUB_TIMEOUT=0
  2. Apply your changes
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
