Dual-booting Again

Posted Today at 06:10 AM by brianL

Thought I'd lost interest in using other distros ages ago, but since this T3600 has such a large HDD (1 TB), I'm having another go - with Ubuntu 16.04. Slackware & Ubuntu: offers a good contrast. No problems yet. Hope I don't get kicked out of the Slackware Fanboys Club for this.

Hey there! I haven't posted in a long while, so I thought I'd share a funny story that happened to me last night.

As some of you know, I left my job at $big_corp to head back to saner pastures. I found a really nice remote job working with Openstack. I worked from home some while at $big_corp, but the quality of power and network at home wasn't a deal breaker, given that I could easily commute to the corp office if the home office turned into a three-ring circus. Now, however,...

NEWS 180614 about AndEX Oreo 8.1
My first build of AndEX Oreo 8.1 is from 180103. My second build is from 180202.

Proof of concept script to make GIMP more similar to MyPaint or Krita, for painting/drawing

A hacky way of getting an approximation of it is along the line(s) of:

Code:
while true ; do xdotool getactivewindow getwindowname | grep GIMP && xsetwacom set "Wacom Bamboo Pen stylus" Button 3 "key Control button
