Linux compatible hardware.

Posted 09-21-2011 at 06:53 AM by rich_c

So, I've been shopping online for a mouse for my new netbook. I settled on a Logitech M125. While looking at the specifications, I noticed that it specifically states that the mouse is compatible with Linux 2.6 kernels and better. Same info on the manufacturer's site. Well, it's not often you see that!

Opera Middle-Click Functionality

Just a handy hint to fix something which has bugged me for ages - if you middle click in Opera under Arch linux (and probably other distros), rather than scrolling, it tries to paste text and seems to end up searching for whatever's in your clipboard.

Luckily, this can be changed. Strangely, it's completely non-obvious.

Shift+Middle Click brings up a dialog which allows you to change your middle-click settings.

Test on prefix

Posted 09-19-2011 at 02:07 PM by Thor_2.0

Restart!

Partitioning, and formatting. Setting up an /etc/fstab and /etc/resovl.conf.
As a test, I downloaded lynx, and did

Quote:
./configure --prefix=$DST
where DST is the destination: /dev/sda3...

And...the install went straight to the right place: the hard drive instead of the ramdisk.

The first step is made.

Nokia-M$ Strategic Alliance

Edit 2011-09-19:
This was written shortly after the 1 Febuary 2011 press release; but got left, unfinished, in "drafts".
Although I don't remember what else I was going to say, I am posting it now.
Needless to say, it deserves some updating about the last 9 months developments.

Thoughts on cross-posting & reporting it.

Posted 09-19-2011 at 11:08 AM by archtoad6

This was inspired by a recent triple post, & was originally going to be posted in the unclosed duplicate thread. As I got to the end of writing it, I realized that I was becoming guilty of "piling on" & decided to place this here in my blog instead.

<New User>,

Welcome to LQ. I hope you will return soon. If not, then the following may help some other newcomer to avoid your triple posting mistake.

It's obvious from...
