Some senior forum members will remember that in olden times, we listened to radio, using devices which had rather simple knobs for power on/off and tuning, to select the radio station of our choice. This study attempts to compare several Linux distributions with the aim of identifying the best distributions available, for music enthusiasts, who wish to tune in to the world's music, without having to sit at a keyboard, typing earnestly, instead of doing whatever

Sound on flash and everywhere else at the same time, in Arch

Tags alsa, arch, flash, oss, sound

There had been a weird problem with sound on Arch. Whenever there was a flash item being displayed (or perhaps flash using sound, I suppose), there would be no sound elsewhere. And if there were sound elsewhere, whenever you play something on flash, it would conversely be mute.

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

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.

HAL is deprecated, or something like that, and I don't have any .fdi file for...

Canon Canoscan Lide 25 on Arch Linux 2.6.34

Posted 08-13-2010 at 09:25 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

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.
