[Announcement] Profile-sync-daemonview story

http://chakra-project.org – Profile-sync-daemon (psd) is a tiny shell script designed to manage your browser's profile in tmpfs and to periodically sync it back to your physical disc (HDD/SSD). This is accomplished via a symlinking step and an innovative use of rsync to maintain back-up and synchronization between the two. (HowTos)

[Solved] Extended ASCII in Xfce Terminalview story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – thisoldman: Thanks, that solved it! I did have the line enabled in rc.conf, but had typed it as en_US.utf8 instead of en_US.UTF-8. A frustrating inconsistency... locales.gen lists it as en_US.UTF-8 (which I assume is why it should be listed that way in rc.conf), but when I run locale -a, it lists it as en_US.utf8. In any case, it appears to be working, now. (HowTos)

Maximum entropy! Is this "sufficiently" random?view story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – Not sure what 100% entropy would mean.It means each bit is completely independent of all the others.  Quality does indeed apply.  Low quality means that the measured entropy is near 0%, high quality means it is near 100%.  For example, all pseudo RNGs have 0% entropy because they can be perfectly predicted.  Entropy (in computing) is just a fancy way of saying completely unpred (HowTos)

Disabling touchpad except for two-finger scroll.view story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – I think you're best bet is going to be playing with the Synaptics Client settings until you get something that's functionally equivalent: use some combination of number of fingers on the touchpad, time-out-relative-to-typing, and sensitivity. tychoish https://bbs.archlinux.org/profile.php?id=26822 2012-04-01T23:54:29Z (HowTos)
