PC configurations

From Just in Time

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.

Media PC

  • Ubuntu 10.04
  • mythtv from synaptic
  • mythweb
  • phpmyadmin
  • unsuccessful move to new Nvidia graphics card (FIXME)
  • tv_grab_nl_py script
  • trying to slow down GPU fan through lm-sensors, needs kernel option to run it87 driver (as descriped here)


Wacom Touch

See this thread:

Add the following to /etc/init.d/local

xsetwacom set "Serial Wacom Tablet touch" touch on
xsetwacom set "Serial Wacom Tablet touch" Gesture on

if needed add the local script to the init sequence with

sudo update-rc.d local defaults


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
