Note that this page is not directly related to any MCU project. Since I'm installing quite a number of different linux configurations on systems, this page contains some notes on how they've been configured.
This page describes how to hack a shared library to allow Unity menu integration of eclipse. The gist of it:
cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/menuproxies && sudo sed -i 's/Eclipse/Xclipse/' libappmenu.so
To change the appearance of tool tips in unity to be legible within eclipse, follow these instructions. Gist:
sudo gedit /usr/share/themes/Radiance/gtk-2.0/gtkrc
and use #000000 for tooltip_fg_color and #f5f5b5 for tooltip_fg_color.

By default the screen brightness is very low when logging in. I therefore also add the following to the same file
echo 7 > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness
Graphics driver performance
High compiz cpu load? Verify that the graphics driver is not the gallium (software) renderer ("System Settings"->"Details"). Install xserver-xorg-video-intel if it is.
adapt /etc/nsswitch.conf if browsers start to become slow in dns lookup.
this page shows how to install a canon MP640 under ubuntu. The gist is:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install cnijfilter-mp640series
Easiest by installing TypeCatcher. This install inconsolate from Google fonts, making sure that there is a decent (truly monospaced) bold version as well.
