Automatically update flashplayer-plugin

Posted 07-11-2015 at 04:03 PM by jere21
Updated 07-20-2015 at 08:13 PM by jere21

Code:
ii  flashplugin-nonfree  1:3.6.1  amd64  Adobe Flash Player - browser plugin
Debian doesn't update the flashplayer-plugin automatically to avoid downloading an unchecked 3rd party proprietary binary. If you want to ignore that risk for convenience do the following:

/usr/local/bin/flash-update.sh
Code:
#!/bin/sh
update-flashplugin-nonfree --install

/etc/systemd/system/flash-update.service
Code:
[Unit]
Description=update-flashplugin-nonfree

Gnome 3 and Debian Stretch

For now the Jessie issues also apply:

New stuff:
  1. Fixed: Window resizing
    Gnome 3.16 came with an issue where the mouse pointer doesn't change to "resize" look on all borders of every app. (Only some apps and some parts of the borders are affected).
    The resizing seems to work anyway, just click with your normally looking pointer on any border and resize the window.
    See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=746598
    This should be fixed

Scanner (here: Mustek Bearpaw 1200 CS), Scanning and file size reduction under Debian Jessie

Posted 06-05-2015 at 07:44 AM by jere21

tl;dr:
Save A1fw.usb to /usr/share/sane/gt68xx/ and start scanning with sane.

More general instructions for installing a scanner:
  1. Your user should be in group "scanner" and sane must be installed. In my case I have:
    Code:
    ii  libsane:amd64         1.0.24-13    amd64  API library for scanners
    ii  libsane-common        1.0.24-13    all    API library for scanners -- documentation and support files
    ii  libsane-extras:amd64  1.0.22.3     amd64
