Sound works fine while listening via notebook speakers.
But when plugging in headphones, there is no sound at all.
Checking alsamixer (in command line) shows that “Headphone” cannot be chosen, and “Speaker” is muted. When turning up “Speaker” volume, there is sound on the headphones…
Edit /usr/share/pulseaudio/alsa-mixer/paths/analog-output-headphones.conf :
switch = mute
volume = merge
At ScRiBLink you’ll find a free, powerful whiteboard where you and your colleagues can work on your ideas together.
No registration is required : )
Additional features like
– picture upload
– math functions
– multiple users
give you a good base to start sharing concepts online, etc..
Note: Maybe it’s not working behind corporate firewalls because it uses additional tcp ports.
If you know about alternatives, please comment.
If you want to use a higher resolution on your linux console, you have to add the specific option while loading the kernel.
i.e: kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.25 root=/dev/sda3 resume=/dev/sda2 vga=0x0325
Problem: The settings differ depending on your graphics card.
But: There is an easy way: hwinfo
[ sudo ] hwinfo −−framebuffer

Thanks to Gerd [de] for the hint.
Should you be bored and have some time to get amused, take a look at “The IT Crowd”.
It’s a great British sitcom about IT administrators and their weird lifestyle (yes, it’s very exaggerated : ) ).
More about the show @ wikipedia.org.

Today, I bought a new scanner – of course without checking linux compatibility : |
HP – a well known brand. Description says “Works with Max OS X, Win Vista, XP, 2000”. Linux wasn’t mentioned, but that’s quite common.
The default xsane backend package (<- v.1.0.19 [delivered with Ubuntu Hardy]) didn’t find a device, so I tried installing the beta release of the hp3900 sane backends (drivers).
This version is still beta status, but got my new scanner up and running : )

great message … think about it ..

If you want to convert a flash stream into a more comfortable format, that can be saved on your local disc and be played by most software/hardware, here’s a short guide:
Save your prefered video (from i.e. YouTube, MyVideo, etc.) with KeepVid.
When FFmpeg is installed, the conversion in Linux is quite simple:
ffmpeg -i input.flv -ab 128 -ar 44100 -b 900 \
-s 640x480 output.mpg
-b = videobitrate
-ab = audiobitrate
-ar = audiosamplerate (Hz)
-s = framesize width * height
free software, security and a bunch of my strange thoughts
