lifted from

and not yet tested in school

Code:
$ vim /etc/iceweasel/pref/iceweasel.js
// This is the Debian specific preferences file for Iceweasel
// You can make any change in here, it is the purpose of this file.
// You can, with this file and all files present in the
// /etc/iceweasel/pref directory, override any preference that is
// present in /usr/lib/iceweasel/defaults/preferences

Three convenient customizations to firefox / iceweasel

Posted 07-14-2012 at 04:40 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 07-14-2012 at 04:46 PM by the dsc

Restore an old/previous session, but do not load the tabs right away: an end to the dilemma of empty session versus restoring tabs. Add to "about:config", if it's not already there:

Code:
browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand
Set to "true", and it doesn't hurt to add also:


Code:
browser.sessionstore.max_concurrent_tabs
Set to 0. I guess it depends on the version or whatever, I don't care to find out. I wish I knew that...

Fedora 17 and the brother printer

Posted 07-13-2012 at 07:41 PM by subvertigo
Updated 08-16-2012 at 08:39 AM by subvertigo

The Brother printer driver for my printer runs into SELinux problems post-install. Fortunately, the selinux troubleshooter made this a trivial fix:
Code:
semanage fcontext -a -t cupsd_etc_t /etc/opt/brother/Printers/mfcj6710dw/inf
restorecon -v /etc/opt/brother/Printers/mfcj6710dw/inf
semanage fcontext -a -t cupsd_var_run_t /etc/opt/brother/Printers/mfcj6710dw/inf/brmfcj6710dwrc
restorecon -v /etc/opt/brother/Printers/mfcj6710dw/inf/brmfcj6710dwrc
The remaining files...

Fedora 17 and the nvidia geforce display driver

Posted 07-13-2012 at 05:27 PM by subvertigo

This is how I installed the nvidia driver in Fedora 17 for 64 bit x86 without using a 3rd party repository. My experience will not work with all configurations.

1. Download a compatible 64 bit x86 display driver from http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_a...y_archive.html (32 bit x86 display drivers are at http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display_archive.html)

2. Install the kernel-devel and gcc packages.

3. Create the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf...
