Things I Can’t Do In Ubuntu…yet

Filed under
Ubuntu

Although I’ve been using Ubuntu every day, reading websites and magazines, and even listening to podcasts, there are a few things that have eluded me. These aren’t major obstacles, but I sure would like to figure them out - most of these I’ve posted about or mentioned them in passing.

I’ve resolved to work on at least one a little bit every day, and hope I make a breakthrough. However, here they are for now:

9 Mouse Buttons with Logitech G9

I can’t get the scroll wheel tilt left/right working. I’ve read some instructions, but if I change my mouse driver in xorg.cong to “evdev” (which seems to be a common step in all the places I found), then my graphics card gets goofed up!

I have spent a lot of time on this with little results - the best I have managed is to get the wheel left lean to report the same button as the rear thumb button.

Fedora: The Latest

  • Korora 22 Flash Update
    As we announced when Korora 22 was released, Adobe Flash is no longer included by default.
  • Fedora repository for Doom stuff: Zandronum, Doomseeker, CnDoom
    I had a bit of free time over the last few days, and looked at the current state of the art for Doom on Linux. The awesome Rahul Sundaram has been looking after several Doom-related packages for a while – including the Chocolate Doom package – but there are some things that seem to be commonly used these days that we didn’t have packaged. So I packaged them up, and put them in a new repository!
  • CUDA 7.0 enabled programs for Fedora 22
    I’ve udpated the CUDA version in the Fedora 22 Nvidia repository, it now contains CUDA 7.0.28 along with the cuFFT 7.0.35 patch. Note that from this version, CUDA is x86_64 bit compatible only, so there are no more i386 packages. There is still the cudart library available for 32 bit, but I don’t think it’s worth packaging.
  • Secure Boot — Fedora, RHEL, and Shim Upstream Maintenance: Government Involvement or Lack Thereof
    Note that there are parts of this chain I’m not a part of, and obviously linux distributions I’m not involved in that support Secure Boot. I encourage other maintainers to offer similar statements for their respective involvement.
  • Remi repository is changing
    The "remi" repository exists for > 10 years, it have changed a lot, and some recent changes worth to be explained.
