Resumable VNC sessions in Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon

| | Comments (0)
Ok, I've written about how I managed to get resumable vnc sessions working in feisty before, now I've upgraded to Gutsy Gibbon and ofcourse it stopped working. Apparently the fonts have moved on disc, so I needed to change my Xvnc.conf file to reflect this. The font parameter should look like this: /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc source: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=122402&page=37

Support for the Special Vaio buttons

There is a great site about linux on laptops and over there I found a guy that have been writing a guide for linux on TX3XP a laptop very similar to mine. But I think that is a bit old. Most of the things in his article is already working on my install of feisty. But while googling for the special vaio button drivers I found this interesting page where work are being put into enhancing this support. So I ran the acpidump tool and published the dump from my laptop in the named thread on ubuntuforums. If you have a vaio laptop you should do the same!

Experiences from running linux on Sony Vaio TX2XP

| | Comments (0)
I've started a new category. It's about my experiences from running linux on my Sony Vaio TX2XP laptop. I'm currently writing this from said laptop and at the moment Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty) is the distro of choice. I had to try a few times to get it to install, but it might have been due to a bad disc, dunno, but don't get worried just yet, except for that I'm pretty happy with the experience so far. Stay tuned for more news and I promise I'll post screenshots of interesting bits. On my first day I've managed to get the necesseties listed below out of the way.
