How To Get Sony Vaio Backlight Working Under Linux

Posted 07-14-2016 at 10:09 PM by Ztcoracat

Got a Sony Vaio with backlight capabilities?

Code:
/etc/modeprobe.d/sony-laptop.conf
Before you close that file put this argument in it:
Code:

How To Remove Files When the rm -rf fails

Not being able to remove files with the rm -rf command is pretty annoying.
When make uninstall or make clean fails as well try this:

Open the Natailus file manager as 'root':
Code:
sudo gksu natailus
Once the file manager launches be careful where you go and what you delete.

How to fix the Clock in Slackware

Code:
ntpdate time.nist.gov

Code:
# hwclock

Installing Simon Voice Recognition Software

Posted 10-25-2015 at 10:32 PM by Ztcoracat

Installing the dependencies wasn't what I'd call fun.

That pkg that is needed is here:
