I’ve gotten my hands on a Canon i-Sensys MF8280Cw multifunction colour laser printer, in part because I noticed that Canon has published CUPS drivers for Debian (that is Ubuntu), so it should work. It also does work, but I had to jump a few hoops. The driver is available from here (Italian site). Running Debian […]

I’ve bought a Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook, model NP530U3C-A08IT to be exact, and Italian version. Its a 13″ laptop, 1,5kg with a 128Gb SSD disk. I received with it another 120 Gb SSD disk, which I have used to install Debian Wheezy, keeping the original disk with a never booted Windows 8 apart. It is […]

I have Debian testing on my Asus Eee Pc 1000H with Linux 2.6.26.  The ALSA driver therein doesn’t fully support the Eee Pc 1000H (and  therefore neither the 901).Sound playback is fine, but the microphone doesn’t work. Installing Linux 2.6.28 was a no-go as the drivers for the wireless isn’t available there, so I decided […]

A while ago I had the opportunity of swapping my 60Gb iPod (5G) for a 160Gb iPod Classic (6G), and naturally I accepted, only to be bitten by the “No music” bug. The old iPod, and an iPod Nano I also use, can easily be updated with new music and playlists through number of Linux […]

I’ve installed Debian with Gnome on my new Asus EeePC 1000H, and for some reason the Gnome Power Manager preferences wouldn’t let me decide on what cpu frequency scaling governor I wanted to use. I’m trying to squeeze as much time as I can out of the battery, so I wanted it to be “powersave” […]

I have a Philips SHB6100 bluetooth headset which I have only used with my mobile phone.  A long time ago I tried getting it to work with Debian, but it was too much work for too little. Today I tried again, and things has changed quite a bit. I had it working in less than […]

I have bought an Asus EeePc 1000H which is one of the new popular netbook – a very small and light weight notebook. I chose the Asus EeePc 1000H for several reasons: I travel a lot, often by motorcycle and kayak,  and need something compact and lightweight for mail, internet, blog updates and social networks; […]

I have a handful of site which are built on WordPress with a modified default theme. Recently, without any changes to the sites, they have started to display differently. The problem also appears if I switch to the default theme unmodified and on other wordpress site which use the default theme. I believe the changed […]

Microsoft® SilverLight

I just ran into a site that required Microsoft® Silverlight, but I cannot install it: thought it provides “Compelling Cross-Platform User Experiences” Apparently “cross-platform” is a rather restricted concept at Microsoft, meaning “works somewhat on a Mac too”
