Automatically update flashplayer-plugin

Code:
ii  flashplugin-nonfree  1:3.6.1  amd64  Adobe Flash Player - browser plugin

/usr/local/bin/flash-update.sh
Code:

    The resizing seems to work anyway, just click with your normally looking pointer on any border and resize the window.

Scanner (here: Mustek Bearpaw 1200 CS), Scanning and file size reduction under Debian Jessie

Posted 06-05-2015 at 07:44 AM by jere21

tl;dr:
Save A1fw.usb to /usr/share/sane/gt68xx/ and start scanning with sane.

More general instructions for installing a scanner:
  1. Your user should be in group "scanner" and sane must be installed. In my case I have:
    Code:
    ii  libsane:amd64         1.0.24-13    amd64  API library for scanners
    ii  libsane-common        1.0.24-13    all    API library for scanners -- documentation and support files
    ii  libsane-extras:amd64  1.0.22.3     amd64

Posted 12-07-2014 at 01:03 PM by jere21
Updated 12-09-2014 at 09:49 AM by jere21

Time (actually I did that early 2014) to update CyanogenMod on my my Samsung Galaxy GT I9000 (the first install I did here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ogenmod-35043/)

Hint for later use: adb - Use phone-terminal on your computer.
