Notes on how I may have managed to get wacom tablet to work on Arch, before I completely forget it

By "work" I mean having "hovering" and "keepshape" mode, not just a worthless slow "pen-mouse". My thinking is that it wasn't working due to concurrent configuration files. There isn't only xorg.conf, but on /etc/X11 there is a xorg.conf.d folder, and there there was a ##-wacom.conf or something, with different settings than the ones I had set manually on xorg.conf.

Canon Canoscan Lide 25 on Arch Linux 2.6.34

Apparently I got it working. It did do a preview scan, with color, on xsane, as a normal user, so it's almost 100% sure it is OK. The only thing I think I may have had to do different from Debian was to set a udev rule and change user permissions/ownership on /var/lock/sane. Some people said that just udev or permissions alone would do it, but I had the impression I needed both, but that's possibly wrong. I don't see anything wrong in having both, so I'll just leave it as it is, as it is working....

I just saw a post in one of the forums, I almost replied there but this isn't really a proper and/or constructive response, so it goes here instead, this is one thing that really irks me: Technical certifications.

I really couldn't care less about your 'certifications' - they do not impress me one bit, in fact I actually have a cynical hostile contempt for them. I know it's kinda discriminating and generalizing, but it's based on my own personal and professional experience for decades....

Security and Privacy on the Internet

Posted 08-12-2010 at 04:31 AM by craigevil (craigevil's random words of wisdom)
Updated 08-11-2013 at 12:44 PM by craigevil (added Antisocial ADP list)

If you are really worried about privacy there are a few things you can do including:
Use the Adblock Plus extension for Firefox and use the
Easy Privacy list as well as the Antisocial list.
This list blocks the ever increasing social networking content on third-party sites.

Use a hosts file to block the multitude of clicktrackers

If you want to do the same thing without having the hosts file slowdown, dnsmasq offers similar functionality and it...
