It has been more than a year since my last post.

Any one used this? hehe

Hardran's power savings script in this forum is the best I've found, with powertop.

Screen consumes by far the most. Some graphics can use up a lot if kernel doesn't like it.

There's a few threads about power savings hanging around too.

It's possible... you'd have to fiddle with corenomnoms rc.xml I guess, right around where the special window actions are...but you could also try installing a tiling window manager if you're feeling frisky

uname -a

and post the output. It will give a clearer indication of your machine and how power might be saved.

TLP, rather than LTP, is good and I've used it before, and you can make modifications, but I think most can be offset with a kernel fitting your machine rather than having tlp running, etc.

My lenovo runs lovely

As already noted lcafiero. "shared" usually equates with not opposing, and this is the sense you used the term "shared".

I understand the phrase "common interests" but you seem to have not noticed that throughout this thread you have undermined the publicised interests of a long standing member, ew, and defined them as not being 'common' throughout the community yet without recourse to asking the 'community' whether such interests are common or not...

#7 Re: Feedback & Suggestions » How we moderate your forum - feedback encouraged » 2013-11-10 18:42:40

^^Then another definition of community should be cited other than one that defines a community in terms of "shared characteristics or interests".

Funny the paradox that as CrunchBang becomes more popular (at least defined by DistroWatch standards) what it markets itself so much on (unique community) begins to appear ever more homogenous with other Linux 'communities'.

Are the moderators aware that Crunchbang is known throughout Linux land as providing a community that transcends interest in only functional concerns?

Beg to differ, dura. So does the dictionary:
com mu ni ty (noun; plural, communities): 3. a social, religious, occupational, or other group sharing common characteristics or interests and perceived or perceiving itself as distinct in some respect from the larger society within which it exists (usually preceded by the): the business community; the community of scholars, the CrunchBang community.
I think that covers us.

Think you've contradicted yourself by arguing against me. If we were a community then me and you would not disagree, by your own definition. You would not try to argue your case to be correct - but, instead, as a moderator with the widest interests of the community as your motivation, enable space for multiplicity within the community. Earlier in this thread you define it as being at odds with ew's interests: he perceives entertainment, as I and others do, to be part of this community and its interests. Yet you do not. So we share different interests that appear to fragment what you like to call a community. Hence I believe the assumption that this dark space of the web with transient members is a community to be false.

There is no visible evidence that CrunchBang constitutes a community, but the discourse is great marketing spiel.

This is not a community!

Does apt-cache suggest that you have Eduroam packages installed? In my experience once I have had Eduroam packages installed I have been able to see and connect to university connections.

Yep, I use it. It's one of my favourite apps.

#17 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Connecting Android <solved> » 2013-10-20 18:38:03

My girlfriend has this problem on her phone; I haven't really attempted to get through it, but it seems you've had just as good a go as I would have, or probably better. I have an Android phone but I don't experience this issue...

If you want to go the ftp way, then its pretty easy with Android- there's a few apps for it, and also for ssh. On iPhones you have to jailbreak them, but you don't have to root your Android as far as I'm aware (one of the reasons I switched...). If you want gui then probably use Filezilla, or you can do the whole thing with terminal on both the Android phone and your Linux machine.

I know. I was saying you don't need some of the other stuff off the page you referenced, but I'll leave you to it.

#19 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » ThinkPad ACPI » 2013-10-19 20:22:23

I don't think you should need some of those recommendations if you're shipping the newest kernels with Wheezy.

#20 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » ThinkPad ACPI » 2013-10-19 20:17:04

Sure thinkpad-acpi is enabled at boot? It will only look after a few things anyway.

I've used thinkfan but in the end think the default setting is better.

#21 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » ThinkPad ACPI » 2013-10-19 20:12:50

Some of the principles remain the same. Have you turned thinkpad-acpi on?

#23 Re: Feedback & Suggestions » How we moderate your forum - feedback encouraged » 2013-10-19 20:04:55

I come back after 4 months away and get accused of that madness?! You're proper weird! Wish I hadn't said anything...
