Machine Description

I have a six year old desktop machine from Pogo Linux (my hostname: "Pogo2011"). The machine has been running Ubuntu since it was new and is now at 16.04.2 LTS.

Brother HL-2140 B&W Laser Printer under Debian 9 only prints blank pages: a fix

I recently installed Debian 9.0 on my primary machine (Pogo2011). This installation is dual boot with Ubuntu 16.04 and each OS booting from a separate hard disk, each with its own Grub installation.

Debian 9 - 64bit on ACER E5-573

Posted 08-14-2016 at 07:00 AM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)

This is another update on last years laptop with Debian 8.5 in 64bit with KDE

As google has stopped support for the 32 bit version of chrome I have updated the known laptop with Debian 8.5. Just did a complete re-install from CD-ROM. Easier than to fumble with the 32bit and try to bring it to 64bit. At the same time we'll see what is working now.
