Doesn't look too good...

These devices requires two kinds of firmware...

Linux: BCM43412 Bluetooth

Sorry if I got your hopes up high by the subject... Haven't solved it yet. But I'm taking notes here, hopefully succeeding in getting bluetooth to work on a Lenovo S21e notebook with Broadcom BCM43412 chipset (wifi+bluetooth). Status on Xubuntu 18.04 (live USB): ⋅  Blueman applet behaves a...

XFCE Thuner: Mount ISOs from right click menu

UPDATE: This is obsolete! There's a way better way to do it, which seems to exist out-of-the-box in Xubuntu 16.04. See details in replied thread below. Here's a slightly adapted/improved version of this answer on AskUbuntu. about how to mount disk images (ISO) from the GUI file explorer Thunar in X...

Issues understanding I

The words that leave your mouth, do not create proper images in my head: If you want to create a game taking in the continuous hyperbolic space, I recommend using the Minkowski hyperboloid model internally, and the Poincaré disk model display, just as HyperRogue does. As te shmup section shows, the ...

Linux: (pre)setting the display brightness

UNFINISHED. Work in progress... Every time the computer reboots, the brightness settings are reset. I wanted to have different default brightness when I turn on the computer, because I was a bit tired of the same few keypresses every time I boot it up.

It works! :)

I've wired up a prototype setting and: It works! :D Hooray! Although: I've substituted the diodes with a diode-rectifier. I didn't have the proper diodes at hand, and couldn't wait to try it out. Had an old rectifier laying around. Connecting it this way to achieve the same as the above circuit: rec...

Firefox weird: "Customize" menu randomly disabled

Strange thing:
I've used the "Customize..." feature to adjust the position of icons in Firefox. I love it!

But every now and then, that menu item is disabled (grayed out). Why?

Haven't found an answer to this yet.
