18 years of DEBIAN starting from version 5 "Sid" until the recent 10 "Buster".
Before that done 6 years of system administration including a SCO UNIX Server and a couple of Windows Servers and dozens of workstations. The largest system was nearly 100 PC's, devices etc. at 3 locations with LAN and VPN's, Firewall and Phone via landline and VoIP.

Have fun, and maybe share your knowledge with me.

WACOM DTU-2231 on Debian 8, 9 & 10

Posted 02-17-2019 at 04:15 AM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)
Updated 04-04-2020 at 03:50 AM by error_401 (Update NVIDIA, update 3 monitor setup)

Lately got this great display-tablet. It can be used either as a display mapped to the screen or as a separate monitor. When not connected to the VGA/HDMI it will act as a digitizer tablet inputting onto the active screen.

When connected to the HDMI/VGA it acts as a separate display. The problem now is that it mixes up the two screens for the input area as it does not know how to handle the different areas.

The information on the internet is not very specific and complicated...

GnuCash - Jahresabschluss und Neueröffnung

Posted 08-30-2018 at 09:21 AM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)
Updated 08-30-2018 at 09:22 AM by error_401

Fast nirgends findet sich eine einfache und auch für Laien verständliche Anleitung zum Jahresabschluss mit GnuCash. Die meisten geben zwar gute Tipps, z.B. für jedes neue Jahr eine neue Datei anzulegen, allerdings keine Anleitungen wie der Gewinn/Verlust verbucht, die Buchhaltung abgeschlossen und eine neue mit leeren Aufwand/Ertrags Konten eröffnet wird.

INFO: Löscht keine Konten aus der Gruppe 9 bevor ihr nicht sicher seid, wozu es dient.


ABSCHLUSS:

Debian 9 on ACER E5-571

Posted 11-05-2017 at 04:45 PM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)

Installation of Debian 9 via CD-ROM with an image including firmware.

ACER Aspire E5-571 with dual Celeron and 4GB RAM.
Pre-installed Windows 8.1 fully patched OCT 2017.

I will give a short overview only. You have to search for the single steps explanation on the internet and how to do a specific task if you do not know how.

Largest loss of time is to prepare Windows 8.1 for the installation.

SONY XPERIA X Compact - KDE connect issues

Posted 09-15-2017 at 08:29 AM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)
Updated 04-04-2020 at 03:54 AM by error_401

Since updating Android to version 8 and Debian to version 9 or 10 KDEConnect is no longer working. It can connect to the phone and can issue all the functionality of KDEConnect except for the most wanted, access to the file system to copy files.

Still no workaround as of 02/2020.

Working on it.

DEBIAN - unable to start X Server

Posted 10-22-2016 at 05:21 AM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)

Sometimes it happens that x won't start

Symptoms:
- No graphical interface login (kdm) (gdm) do not start
- Terminals are available except for #7 which normally is the x Server's
- When trying to start the x-Server from a console logged in as normal user we get errors
- Error is: unable to start core services

It may be a problem with a full harddisk.
It seems that the syslog can under some circumstances become quite large (several...
