#3 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [solved] Brightness setting increments » 2014-06-06 23:41:45

I recommend that you give the latest kernel from backports a try. With the stock Waldorf one, I had no control over screen brightness at all. I'm using a Thinkpad E440.

Probably the kernel included in the latest Crunchbang (which is rather old by now) doesn't support your wireless card.

#5 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » deadbeef wont start as normal user » 2014-04-06 23:29:45

Have you tried downloading the latest version? I am using deadbeef-static_0.6.1-5_i686.tar.bz2 and I haven't encountered any issues.

Thanks! I have a humble E440 but these tips will certainly come in handy.

#7 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » What was your first computer? » 2014-01-29 14:10:48

A Philips Odyssey 2. it was already obsolete when an uncle gave it to me after some years of use (late 80s if I remember correctly), but I enjoyed it nonetheless. It had several games and even a programming cartridge which I sadly never learned to use.

OK, try this:
1. Install the lyrics plugin, which I assume you did already.  But make sure because it doesn't seem to be a standard part of the build.
2. Configure the plugin to have a non-zero cache period, bercause the default sems to be 0 which disables lyrics completely.  Another case of a not very discoverable "feature", although it is mentioned in the plugin blurb.
3. Make sure you haver an infobar showing in the playlist area.  I don't think this is the default either, and there is no obvious option to show it.  Go into design mode (view menu), then right click on the playlist, replace it with a box or splitter, then put the playlist and infobar into the box.  Obvious, huh?

Thank you! I'll try this later.
I really like deadbeef but documentation isn't its strong point.

#10 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » Is deadbeef my new audio player? » 2014-01-06 15:59:57

I'm also using deadbeef 0.60, and my only complaint is that I haven't been able to activate song lyrics. There is a plugin but it only seems to work with the previous version.

Maybe you'll need  to comment the line

## Turn on/off system beep
xset b off &

in the autostart file (Settings -> Openbox -> Edit autostart)

Cool! I need to get myself one of those Korg DS-10 carts...
Maybe you could play around with the input volume slider first (top right of the Audacity window, with a little mic icon). Failing that, change the input device (under the playback controls, also with a little mic icon) while the DS is outputting sound so that the input level meter will immediately tell you if anything is being 'received' by the computer.

I own a acer travelmate 5740 with 4gb since 2.5 years - and I say:

don't do it. consider buying from a different manufacturer.

I got only one meager hour of battery life after only one year of usage. the machine tends to overheat and will instant-turn off whenever I watch 10 minutes video fullscreen or work with graphics. on windows and linux alike.
my neighbour has the same machine and it shows the exact same behaviour.
this computer is a terribly annoying machine. I will never ever buy an Acer computer again.

I have no experience with Acer laptops, but my Dell was also overheating after some years of use. I opened it up, cleaned it, and the temperatures immediately dropped 30°C. A friend had told me that this would happen, but I didn't really believe him until I tried it for myself.
Regarding the initial question, I have only 2 gb of ram and I have never felt I needed more. I only use the laptop for writing and going online, however.

#14 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Do you use more than one web browser? » 2013-10-22 18:11:30

Opera is my main browser, but I use Iceweasel for some sites. I've also learned to like Dillo; it's incredibly fast!

#15 Re: CrunchBang Talk » RAM usage » 2013-08-27 13:02:26

You can check what's using all that memory with htop

#16 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Overheating Issues » 2013-08-06 19:29:04

Maybe you could try another distro on a live cd to rule out any hardware issues

#17 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [Solved] CrunchBang and OmegaT » 2013-06-27 16:07:28

Do you mean Options -> Segmentation ?
It looks OK in my system.

#18 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [Solved] CrunchBang and OmegaT » 2013-06-27 15:53:59

In my case, the dialogs don't 'remember' the last position. I suppose this could be due to some Jave error, but I haven't really looked into it.
Hopefully somebody else will be able to help; if not, I think it would be useful to ask this question at the OmegaT Yahoo group

Best of luck

Htop is the default resource monitor in 11

#20 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [Solved] CPU constantly around 90%+ help » 2013-04-18 18:31:58

You can type opera:cpu in Opera's address bar to see if any tabs are misbehaving. 55% seems too high for light browser use.

IMO, Deadbeef should be included with #!.

Thanks for the recommendation. I love it! It uses even less resources than VLC, which is a plus on my old laptop.

I've just downloaded and installed it, and I can confirm that you can at least open and save .odt files.

Have you tried xev? Type 'xev' into a terminal, press the key, and you should get the info you need.

#24 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Where's my phone? » 2013-02-01 21:43:30

I used gMTP to connect my Kindle Fire. It is fully automated and works quite well.

#25 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Mount Kindle Fire (Solved) » 2013-01-29 19:11:34

Me again...
Now with Waldorf, I've found that a much simpler solution is to use gMTP.
