You get a list of all input devices with the command “xinput list“. You will need the id of the device you want do disable or enable. Here is an example output of this command:
~$ xinput list
⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad id=12 [slave pointer (2)]
To disable (0) or enable (1) the touchpad with id=12 you can use these commands:
xinput set-prop 12 "Device Enabled" 1
xinput set-prop 12 "Device Enabled" 0
See https://github.com/docker/compose/releases for instructions. The documentation possibly doesn’t show the latest infos.
Updating to the latest grub version leads to “error: symbol ‘grub_efi_find_last_device_path’ not found” on my dual boot system having Ubuntu 15.10 next to Windows 10.
This can be fixed by downgrading to the version before the latest one in the ubuntu repository till this bug is fixed.
Here is how I downgraded my grub installation:
sudo apt-get install grub2-common=2.02~beta2-29ubuntu0.2 \
grub-common=2.02~beta2-29ubuntu0.2 grub-efi-amd64=2.02~beta2-29ubuntu0.2 \
sudo apt-mark hold grub-common grub-efi-amd64-bin grub2-common grub-efi-amd64
Without the hold line apt would install the latest version on the next upgrade. As soon as the bug is fixed you can remove the hold mark with
sudo apt-mark install grub-common grub-efi-amd64-bin grub2-common grub-efi-amd64
My English version of Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.04 could not agree whether my hwclock is UTC or not. So booting either Window or Linux changed my hwclock and then the time in the other OS was wrong. So I changed my hwclock to UTC and told Windows and Linux that my clock is set to UTC:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Open the file (as superuser)
and add or change UTC=yes
In this example eth0 should get a static ip. This can be done by editing
iface eth0 inet static
This is the entry to configure gateway and dns-server.
I have a pivot monitor and want to set it up correctly. First you get a list of your connected displays with the command
This says something like
HDMI-0 connected 1920×1200+1920+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 593mm x 371mm
1920×1200 59.95*+ 59.88
1920×1080 60.00 59.94 50.00 60.05 60.00 50.04
1280×1024 75.02 60.02
1280×720 60.00 59.94 50.00
1024×768 75.03 70.07 60.00
800×600 75.00 72.19 60.32 56.25
720×576 50.00 50.08
720×480 59.94 60.05
640×480 75.00 72.81 59.94 59.93
And if you have more than one displays this is repeated with e.g. HDMI-1 if bot are connected via HDMI. For display port it says DP-0 and so on.
To rotate this display there are the the following commands:
# set to normal rotation again
xrandr --output HDMI-0 --rotate normal
# rotate 90° left
xrandr --output HDMI-0 --rotate left
# rotate 90° right
xrandr --output HDMI-0 --rotate right
Magento 2 complained that I should set always_populate_raw_post_data to -1. Changing the php.ini didn’t help. The solution was to add
php_value always_populate_raw_post_data -1
to my VirtualHost (directly after the AllowOverride of the DocumentRoot-directory config).
To install EA under Linux with wine there are a few steps to take before it works and you are able to run EA plugins:
- Install winetricks
- Prepare a 32bit wine runtime with
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine winecfg (just click ok in the dialog)
winetricks allfonts (this exited with an exit code on my machine, but this was no problem)
winetricks msxml3 mscml4 mdac28
winetricks dotnet40 corefonts (needed for plugins – not sure if corefonts is necessary)
- After that you can install your .exe files with
wine xyz.exe and .msi files with
wine msiexec /i abc.msi
