Software & Applications / Re: Resolution too low after reboot

You can try a different connection to the monitor, e.g. DVI instead of VGA or whatever is available on GPU und monitor. Maybe it's a Port/Cable

Did you install an update prior to rebooting? Might be a starting point...

Yes, would be nice to know how to add new keyboard layouts.

That's the site:
It's german only and it adds a few other layouts as well, but I there isn't much text anyways.

Ok, on the adnw HP is a download with a replacement for the /usr/share/X11/xkb folder, now everything shows up in the Switcher. Issue solved.

In case your interested, that's the download:

Sorry for the late reply, the adnw HP says it's included in most distros, but often not shown in the menu (to unpopular). They link to this site for help: maybe that helps you.

"setxkbmap de adnw" works, but it would be nice if it would work with the Switcher. Not sure why it's not showing everything in the first place, seems like an odd design decision. I mean does it really matter if there are 15 or 20 german keyboard layouts in the menu :-\

I only wanted to try out a few keyboard layouts and finally learn 10 Finger typing without always thinking about how stupid the keyboard layout is and the Switcher is awesome for that, but turns out keyboard layouts are a highly complicated thing ::)

I want the layout that's called "German (Aus der Neo-Welt)" (it's the last one in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/de)

However the Switcher doesn't show it. It shows a few of the layouts in the "de" file, but not all of them. For example German (Neo2) appears in the Switcher, but German (Aus der Neo-Welt) doesn't appear.
The issue is getting the sub layouts that the Switcher doesn't show.

Maybe the layout got added after you made the Switcher?  :-\

how do I add a keyboard layout the Switcher doesn't have in it's list? For example adnw (a layout for german and english) is in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/de by default, but the Switcher doesn't show it.

Obviously it would be nice if the switcher could automatically read the content of /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols when I want to add a new layout.


IMO, the final nail in the coffin is going to be, when people can't find a modern 32bit browser .

That time it is a'coming.

32bit is still common on mobile devices, that's probably the main reason why that's not an issue right now. However after 2021 that's probably looking different.

I'm still using my first smartphone, Android 4.2.2... I think they're at 8 now ::) Security updates are overrated on a highly insecure system :D

That's what I hope for - a basic Linux for the pocket. Android/iOS is more like a convenient multifunctional surveillance monitor.

If he's going to use Linux he should have a properly working windows VM.

If he's even allowed to install the CAD software they're using on a private PC that is. But having a properly working windows VM is probably still useful, that's just what you're expected to run.

I guess I'm late, I think it's very interesting... but the funding isn't looking great :(

I liked the old Windows mobile thing (the PocketPC with Pen and an awesome sliding keyboard), because it was really like a PC in the Pocket. Looked a lot like XP, felt a lot like it and (the few applications that ran on it) actually ran like on a (very old) PC... the 1x 400MHz CPU wasn't that great, but a modern smartphone is slightly stronger..
I got it for free when the smartphones started appearing and did everything I needed to do for school on it. If I couldn't sleep during classes I was working on the presentations and stuff we had to do. That thing boosted my grades :D
I still have that thing, my only remaining full time windows machine, just in case i need MS Office :D

A PocketPeppermintPC would be awesome, although it wouldn't replace a regular smartphone... I mean most people don't know how to communicate without Whatsapp. Like on the PC, Peppermint is great but no Windows replacement, because your expected to use Windows.

Stumbled upon this today.
"... there are around a billion people on Earth above the advisable weight range."

Quote from:
795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life.

So the average weight should be healthy ;)

Others (we) are overfed and fooled to consume, not only food and drinks (buy two for one stuff or plus-menus), but also everything else.

But only mass produced food. The EU is basically terminating regional food supplies. Probably because it's the only way to open this market, regional food is/was often not only better but cheaper as well. Nowadays the local baker isn't allowed to use eggs and instead has to buy the liquid egg from big farms, because eggs from the local farmer are unhygienic. Now we have an egg-scandal. The local mills were shut down because they used unprotected wood as containment for fluor, unhygienic. This got reversed because fluor gets moldy in stainless steel containments with condensation and you need unprotected wood to store fluor for longer periods. The local millers are all already ruined. The farmer can't sell the milk as it's coming out of the cow and so on...
Luckily my grandparents (from both sides) are farmers and this is going to get continued (only for own use, nothing getting sold). So I'm not that affected by the food industry, because it doesn't taste well compared to that.

I'm not hungry, just had some deer with spaetzle in red wine sauce and potato salad with cucumber. And elderflower ice cream as desert. Nothing goes over grannys cooking skills, she's even making the icecream fresh :D :D :D
Holidays at home can be pretty sweet, too :D :D :D

alt-right = paid Soros protesters...  Antifa = paid Soros Protesters as well
The best opposition is the one you lead ;)
And people need bread and games, left vs right is an effective game which keeps them busy...

but enough politics here, enjoy your trip VinDSL. The world is just going crazy as always, don't worry :D. I thought you knew your the only normal person, so what did you except to happen if your going? :D :D :D

I've been running HT since 2004, 32-bit and 64-bit.  Leave it enabled.
Also, if you're running a hot chip:  I've run 4 GHz on air, with this stuff   ;)

Well if you need single core performance you should disable it, HT is only useful if you can use the extra threads.

The AMD FX-6300 in my PC is running on 4.8GHz on air, with liquid metal instead of thermal paste and a sanded heatspreader 8). But that's a different topic...
