  1. Re: serial Kensington Expert Mouse trackball not recognized

    New Kensington Expert Mouse trackballs are $75, and I ended up two spares of this model for when it breaks, so I'd really rather make to work.
  2. serial Kensington Expert Mouse trackball not recognized

    I'm still using an ancient serial Kensington Expert Mouse with a serial->PS/2 converter. It's not doing anything. In the brave new Hal-less world, how do I begin to approach this?

  4. [all variants] ctrl-alt-f1 doesn't work after I've xmodmapped ctrl & alt -- how to switch ttys?

    [ubuntu] Re: E: Invalid Operation when installing xinetd

    This might sound silly, but try it again. Might you have mistyped 'install' on the command-line and then written it correctly here? apt-get should say 'invalid operation' when you don't give it a...
  8. [all variants] installing dual boot on raid1: ubuntu and windows disagree about partition size

    My new work machine came with 2 150GB drives configured for RAID1 in the BIOS (of an ASUS P5B deluxe mobo.) They were subsequently divided into 65GB and 85GB partitions. I followed the Fakeraidhowto...

    So close... but the Fn key in the lower left corner to screw up my muscle-memory for ctrl sequences and the lack of DVI tank it for me.

    After much more futzing, I got checkinstall to work, mostly. For reasons unknown, sometimes it bundles the elisp, sometimes it doesn't. And I had to create several directories by hand. And one thing...

    Re: An emacs that you might want to lick!

    I don't think there is any good way to uninstall it -- that's the danger of using 'make install' with things built from source. Unfortunately, checkinstall didn't work with this for me.

    Re: Text editor features

    I'm a big Emacs fan, but agree that the default keybindings are bad, and it's relatively hard to learn (but worth it.)

    For one attempt to make the keybindings easier, check out Easymacs.
