I recently purchased myself an X1 Carbon. I love the thing. However, the trackpad was really sensitive, so tap-to-click could sometimes be a little frustrating as the cursor had a habit of jumping around. After spending a bit of time in the synaptics man page and doing a fair amount of testing with different options, I settled on adding these two lines to my autostart file under the trackpad section:

    synclient FingerLow=55 &
    synclient FingerHigh=55 &

Now the cursor behaves much more like I want it. I hope some of you out there with a Synaptics trackpad may find this useful!

I recently purchased an X1 Carbon with an i7 processor and 8 GB memory. I loaded #! Waldorf on it, and it's been running pretty great with no issues on the 3.2 kernel.

#6 Re: CrunchBang Talk » Your favorite everyday apps! » 2013-03-30 03:22:43

For me:

iceweasel, pidgin, vim, mpd/ncmpcpp, weather, ssh, squid, grep, handbrake, libreoffice, gimp, htop, find

I first played around with Linux between the late 90's and early 2000's, but didn't really stick with it much. Then around 2006, I decided to give Ubuntu a go, and used it for quite a while. When Ubuntu moved to Unity as it's DE, I decided to switch. I tried Kubuntu for awhile, but I just wasn't much of a fan; too much of a good thing, I guess you could say. Anyway, I then gave Xubuntu a go, and really liked it for it's minimalism compared to KDE and Unity. I think I used Xubuntu for about a year and a half.

Fast-forward to about a few weeks ago. For one reason or another, I wanted a bit of a change. I had known about #! for a while, and was rather intrigued by it's noteriety as a minimalist distro. Add that it was a Debian-based distro with Openbox as it's window manager, and it wasn't long before I had decided to take the plunge. So, one evening I decided to backup my data, and give #! a go.

I fell in love with #! almost instantly. About the only thing I wasn't crazy about was the use of Terminator as the main terminal app, but changing that was easy enough. (Call me weird, but I prefer good ol' xterm as my terminal.) I was up until 4:30 in the morning becoming accustomed to how things were done in #!, and changing things to my liking.

One thing I'd like to specifically point out is #!'s look and feel. In my most humble of opinions, #! is the sleekest, slickest, and sexiest looking distribution there is. I love the default black theme, and I'm not typically a fan of dark themes. So, kudos.

Seriously, great work on a very fine distro!
