NEWS 240215 ABOUT RaspEX Kodi 64-bit
I’ve made a new version of RaspEX Kodi 64-bit. This version is based on Raspbian (Raspberry Pi OS) and Debian "Bookworm" (Debian 12.5 stable). The LXDE Desktop is replaced with LXQt , which has a more “modern look” than LXDE.

Circumventing some questionable webdesign practices with keybindings

Posted 02-12-2024 at 08:12 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Tags openbox

Sometimes you can even scroll down with the arrow keys, but that can be somewhat messy, with different sites chosing different parts to have been focused and thus they won't necessarily answer the way you'd expect consistently.

But one can "fake" the mouse wheel with the keyboard and xdotool.

Intel AX201 wifi failure on Debian 12 Bookworm kernel update

Posted 02-10-2024 at 08:57 PM by neonsignal

The Intel AX201 wifi worked on Debian 12 bookworm up to and including linux-image-6.1.0-13.

However, in the kernel updates linux-image-6.1.0-15 it ceased to work.

Some wifi regressions were fixed in linux-image-6.1.0-17, but the AX201 is still not working.

Temporary workaround solution is to continue to boot using the older linux-image-6.1.0-13 kernel, or to install the 6.5 kernel from backports (you will need the backport repositories in your /etc/apt/sources.list...

NEWS 240209 ABOUT ExTiX with Deepin 23 BETA 3
I’ve released a new version of ExTiX Deepin today (240209). The previous ExTiX Deepin version with Deepin 23 BETA 2 is from 240110. This ExTiX Build is based on Deepin 23 BETA 3 (latest version) released by Deepin Technology on February 2, 2024. The developers urge people to try Deepin BETA 3 in a non-production environment! I must say, though, that I haven’t discovered any “bugs”. And the installed programs won’t “crash” or anything like that....
