12 happy years of experience with DEBIAN starting from version 5 Sid until the recent 8.3 Jessie.
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.

I like to experiment and then share the experience. With sharing I may post silly stuff and get corrected - the way to learn something from anybody.

Have fun, insight and maybe share your knowledge with me.

.xpm File format - additional information border width in Xfce

So I'm just blogging what I found out about the xfwm4 theme definition in 2 hours of searching and tinkering with the definition file. No luck so far and I drop the subject.

All the...

Stumbled onto a new hardware treat.
A friend held an EPSON Scanner for quite some time in the original box but had no use for it.

This is a USB scanner and has no network connection.

Documenting on the go in this blog as I do use my blog as reference and sharing platform:

You have finally installed your first linux and have a problem. Now everybody wants to know what you have installed in order to answer your question. But how to get there?
