    [ubuntu] How to disable the 'delete' key?

    I finally found a keyboard which more-or-less works for me. Unfortunately, it has a useless 'delete' key just left of the right arrow key. I don't need it, I keep bumping into it, I want to be able...

    [ubuntu] Re: Any way to get Bluetooth working on Vaio E-series?

    I am probably going to have to return the keyboard, which is a pain, because I can't find any way to get Bluetooth working. According to Wikipedia, the E-series is supposed to have Bluetooth, but...

    [ubuntu] Bluetooth on Vaio E-series

    I am trying to find an accessible keyboard so I don't further injure my typing hand. After trading in one that was a total disaster, I bought another that doesn't have a usb connection or even a usb...
  4. Re: Resources for disabled users looking for accessible hardware?

    What is a white box maker?

    Also being disabled often means being broke. Most of us need something cheap and reliable.

    I work with graphics, I have language issues that make it hard to use the...

  6. How to disable touchpad tapping on Logitech K400 keyboard?

    I picked up an external keyboard to help with my arm injuries. I can only type one-handed, so a smaller keyboard seemed better, and the Logitech K400 seemed like the best available option. It comes...
  7. Resources for disabled users looking for accessible hardware?

    How do you find good accessible hardware?

    A lot of the discussion here is about how to find the right software and the right software fixes to work with the hardware. And that is important. But it...
  8. [all variants] Re: How to search old chat logs and convert chat logs to a more readable format?

    Sorry for not getting back to you on this, didn't want to deal with fancy computer stuff with my rsi, but yes, there were/are empathy logs there.
  9. [all variants] Re: How to search old chat logs and convert chat logs to a more readable format?

    Okay, I put one of the backup directories into the logpath= section of the bash script, but I'm getting an error saying there's "no such file or directory." I checked all my spelling capitalization,...
  10. [all variants] Re: How to search old chat logs and convert chat logs to a more readable format?

    Um... Sorry, I'm not even sure what bash and python are, except that python is a 'scripting language' which somehow differs from a programming language. I don't know what I'd enter the .sh and .py...
  11. [all variants] Re: How to search old chat logs and convert chat logs to a more readable format?

    I have a backup folder full of the logs. It's just that they're a pain to read and impossible to search with the built-in desktop search. I don't have the processing power or spare disk space on this...
  12. [all variants] Re: How to search old chat logs and convert chat logs to a more readable format?

    Well, I never had any luck with anything that's supposed to pop up when needed; these wouldn't pop up when I was trying to use them, and would pop up when I was trying to click on something else in...
  13. [all variants] Re: How to search old chat logs and convert chat logs to a more readable format?

    Empathy uses .log format, Pidgin uses .html. For whatever reason, the desktop search won't touch either.

    As far as the fixes go: I installed a patch to turn off touchpad tapping and gestures, and...

    Hi,

    I've been discussing story ideas with a friend of mine on Empathy and [since a partial upgrade last year disabled Empathy] on Pidgin. I can't search the old Empathy logs, for whatever reason,...
  15. Re: Which desktops and which distros are accessible for users with arm and hand injur

    Thanks. I hope it helps someone. I personally can type right-handed, and slowly type left-handed, but not type both-handed. For me, the best option might be a Gnome 2 style desktop environment with...
  16. Re: Which desktops and which distros are accessible for users with arm and hand injur

    Personally, neither keyboard nor mouse nor built-in touchpad works for me. All three require me to twist my elbow and wrist, and at times it can be quite painful. A joystick often works better for...
  17. Which desktops and which distros are accessible for users with arm and hand injuries?

    I am still using Gnome 2 in Ubuntu 11.04, but it leaves my arms aching. I have been able to patch the touchpad, to restore the scrollbars, and to reset the scrollbars so they are wide enough to use....

    Re: Distrohopping

    I tried Xubuntu 11.10 a while ago. The installer crashed partway through. I managed to get it kinda-sorta running only to find it had no way to disable the malfunctioning touchpad.

    Was strongly considering Kubuntu, but after the latest news about 12.10, which I don't quite believe, I hope to find an independent ad-free spyware-free Linux.

    I'm probably going to need to switch soon.
