    Using an HP-2133 with an external display under Ubuntu 14.04

    Update:

    On the second and later boots, after logging in with the external display disconnected, plug in the external display, and then on the HP-2133's keyboard press fn+F2 simultaneously. The external display should appear after around 30 seconds or so.

    Congrats and much respect from me.

    I need to remember this when a intel stick thread hits these forums.

    mimeopen: a nice tool to setup default applications

    xdg-open will ise the native desktop tools to open files if the desktop is detectable, eg exo-open when using xfce.

    Thanks. I'll look into this, rather than xdg-open for my Openbox pipe menus. Maybe it will make sharing them easier. xdg-open works for me, never ran into any issue Keith has (I use Openbox, no DE) but then again I guess some application I have installed may have pulled in what makes it work.

    I think that fairly recently I've had problems with file associations, but unfortunately I had forgotten about this tool then, and sorted it out in a much more annoying and clumsy manner, whatever it turned out to be.

    Ubuntu OS upgrades usually degrade function on older machines

    rokytnji: Thanks for your thoughts and for taking the time to help. I'll take another look at AntiX. Fluxbox and BBQ Linux look like they require significant investments of time and study. I think my next move will probably be Debian since I already have some (limited) experience there.

    Well, they do make a minimal cd at around 50 to 90 MB download or so.

    You can install fluxbox during the install procedure.
    Then build up from there. Worth a shot if you really like Ubuntu. I have done what I am saying myself. On a Ubuntu 14.04 minimal Icewm Window Manager install where I installed synaptic and worked my way up from there.

    But if just wanting prepackaged. My IBM T23 still functions on AntiX 15 pretty well using the Fluxbox window manager and a wireless G pmcia cardbus.

    AntiX can be Debian Jessie, Testing, or Unstable

    harry@biker:~
    $ inxi -r
    Repos: Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/antix.list
    deb http://antix.daveserver.info/jessie jessie main nosystemd
    Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list
    deb http://ftp.gr.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free
    deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free


    Older gear just requires more elbow grease as time moves on. It is not just Ubuntu full iso dvds that are leaving older gear behind.

    So check out little known jems like BBQ Linux

    It can teach you a little something something. I am a elder statesman myself. Retired. Not College educated.
    But self taught, with good enough linux skills to be accepted as a distro team member.

    Debugging C Programs Using GDB (Including core dumps!)

    Nice but...
    Without core-dumps you can't actually debug so why the headline.
    Nice essay but it doesn't even give the slightest view inside the gnu-debugger.
    You forgot to put in some links to the download-section of the documentations.

    -> https://www.gnu.org/home.en.html

    You -> rectifier :-)

    mimetype and mimeopen work so much better than xdg-open, especially as i run a custom DE, xdg-* only really supports kde/gnome/xfce

    Android-x86_64 Nougat 7.0 Build 161107 with GAPPS and kernel 4.4.27-exton-android-x86_64

    Run/install AndEX Nougat 7.0 in VMware Workstation and/or VirtualBox

    I have noted today how good AndEX Nougat 7.0 is running in VMware (Workstation-12.5.1-4542065). You can of course run the system (or install it) directly from the ISO file android_x86_64-nougat-7.0-gapps-exton-build-870mb-161107.iso.

    I knew already from before that AndEX runs very well in VirtualBox.

    Screenshot 1 – AndEX Nougat running in VMware
    Screenshot 2 – AndEX Nougat running in VirtualBox

    They stole the parts off of my pinchiiiii lawnmower! Cabrones.

    Rube Goldberg Lives!!

    Hi,

    Thankfully, rubism is not dead. I have rubed a few things in my lifetime and some people wonder how these evolve and I tell them that it is a necessity at times to jump in and just make it work. By using innovation that by applying my thought process and using past experience to come up with a solution.

    I like to tinker!
