Me and Debian

Posted 08-21-2013 at 10:42 AM by brianL

Every few months or so, I get the urge to dual-boot with Debian, and I've done it a few times. But I never keep it for long. Why? Can't say for sure, maybe it's something to do with the feeling of being constrained to do things "the Debian Way". Anyway, it's gone again, and I believe I've finally lost all interest in dual-booting and distrohopping (except, possibly, for LFS sometime). I'll stick solely to Slackware. I've never said any other distro was bad, only that they didn't suit me....

Apple Magic Trackpad in Linux

Posted 08-18-2013 at 08:09 PM by vik

Here's the little tweaks I applied to my Apple Magic Trackpad. It doesn't come with a bluetooth dongle so if your motherboard doesn't have bluetooth support you will have to buy a dongle.

Create a file under /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d called 60apple-magic-trackpad.conf. If you don't have an xorg.conf.d directory, create one.
Code:
Section "InputClass"
   Identifier        "Apple Magic Trackpad"
   Driver            "synaptics"

Thunderbird and Evolution Email Setup

Posted 08-17-2013 at 10:46 AM by wmromine

After recently upgrading my Linux OS from Squeeze to Wheezy, I needed to re-setup my email, again. My Internet provider is Time Warner Cable ("TWC") with their RoadRunner ("RR") service. Debian uses Evolution for the default email access. Initially, I thought I would search the Internet for the setup instructions, and quickly discovered it was pretty much a waste of time. I have another computer that uses Mozilla Thunderbird, so I just translated the settings to Evolution,...
