Run your Ubuntu/Debian 64 bit system with the latest kernel – 4.8.0-rc8!

Posted Yesterday at 03:02 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled yet another Ubuntu/Debian kernel for 64 bit systems. This time kernel 4.8.0-18-exton, equivalent to Kernel.org’s latest kernel 4.8.0-rc8 released 160926.

What’s new in Linux kernel 4.8?

Install kernel 4.8.0-18-exton in Ubuntu/Debian based distributions
My self-compiled Ubuntu kernels can be used in all types of modern Ubuntu systems, including Mint. They can even be used in Debian Jessie (Debian 8.6) and Debian Stretch (upcoming Debian 9)....

Visitors but no comments... (??)

Posted 09-28-2016 at 07:58 AM by danrevell (Linux 001)

Strange... most blogs are rife with clueless flamers, high-schoolers trying to sound like professors, actual professors droning on and on (off-topic), and even an occasional contribution of merit. I see that we have had several visitors here but no one leaving comments, contributions, or even off-topic drift. Hmmmmmmm.....
The first reason that springs to my paranoid mind is that which almost deterred me from starting this in the first place: a blog is worse than a waste of time when it...

Autostart script method to fix the GTK3 scroll-warp feature-bug

Posted 09-27-2016 at 07:41 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

! grep warps-slider $HOME/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini && echo "gtk-primary-button-warps-slider = false" >> $HOME/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini
But that of course only works after a new login (not mentioning...

Touchpad issues under Arch

Posted 09-25-2016 at 09:47 PM by drask

Here's an issue that I keep having ever since I switched to Arch. Most of my computers are Dell Latitude laptops, which use an AlpsPS/2 ALPS DualPoint TouchPad. After installing Arch Linux on them, I always end up with a strange situation where any time I put my finger on the pad, the mouse cursor jumps to that location within a small square about half the size of my screen, making it impossible to move the mouse out of that square.

So, to move the mouse to the upper left part of...
