How do I stop the screen brightness being set at DIFFERENT time-points during the boot on Debian 9?

Linux Questions - Tue, 10/18/2022 - 15:55
1. On my Acer laptop, on Debian 9, out of the box, the screen brightness is set
during the boot - you can see the screen dim.

Well, during SOME boots the brightness is set EARLY in the boot process, before
X is started; but during other boots, it is set about 10 seconds later, after X
and lxpanel are fully up and running.

2. My Questions:

a) How can I make the dimming occur consistently EARLY in the boot?
b) What is causing the brightness to be set at DIFFERENT times?
c) My system is systemd. What controls WHEN processes and actions are performed
at boot, and where in my filesystem do I look to find the thing that is setting
the screen brightness?

3. To help you fathom things out, it might help to say that after the boot, I
can MANUALLY set the screen brightness with the following command:

Code: $ sudo sh -c "echo 400 > /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/drm/card0/card0-
LVDS-1/intel_backlight/brightness" where the "400" can be a value from 0 to 976.

Making parent menu in emacs

Linux Questions - Tue, 10/18/2022 - 14:32
Am trying to make a parent menu in emacs. Have traversed the "Emacs Lisp Reference" to "23.17 Menu Keymaps" with an example in "23.17.4 Menu Example".

But cannot get the parent menu to show up.

This is how I make the parent menu "xepty-menu".

Code: (define-key global-map [xepty-menu words]

Ubuntu's New Terminal 'Ad' is Angering Users

Slashdot - Tue, 10/18/2022 - 14:20
Joey Sneddon, reporting at OMG! Ubuntu: In September I tweeted a screenshot of something unexpected that has started to show up in the terminal when I ran system updates. It didn't enrage me at the time (and it kinda still doesn't) but I did find it a little ... Off. Now, if you're suitably tuned-in to the Linux newswire and/or an avid attendee of social media you'll probably heard about the drama in question. If you haven't, then allow me to... Yes, the furore is over an "ad" for Ubuntu Pro, Canonical's revamped support offering that replaces/augments Ubuntu Advantage (which has been around for many years) that appears in the terminal when managing system updates. Other people are calling it an "ad" (hence quote marks). I prefer the term plug (which, it turns out, some people aren't familiar with; it means to mention something in order to promote it). For although this sentence is technically advertising something, in this case Ubuntu Pro, the offering itself is free for regular users (on up-to five devices). Thus, it's not like this is an "ad" that generates Canonical revenue. It's more akin to a public service announcement to raise awareness.

How does configuring lightdm work?

Linux Questions - Tue, 10/18/2022 - 14:00
Hi all,

I'm trying to change the background image for my login screen. I have lightdm running on ubuntu 22.04.

Can you help me learn how the lightdm configuration works?
There is a folder /etc/lightdm/ which seems relevant, it holds
Code: lightdm.conf  lightdm.conf.d  slick-greeter.conf  users.conf lightdm.conf.d is a folder with still more config files.

Clearly, I'm not getting what these files are doing and why there are so many. Somebody know?
Which of the files are considered by lightdm and in which order?

None of the files mentions the background image that is actually being shown. Is there still another location with more config info for lightdm?

Any help lifting this confusion is greatly appreciated!

Setting up NAS with NFS

Linux Questions - Tue, 10/18/2022 - 13:08
Hi there guys.

I was hoping that you could help me with a project please.

Background / History:
I have a Synology DS413J NAS device.
It was working well for many years, however a while ago It had a hard drive
failure (was in SHR / RAID-5) so I managed to retrieve my data.

I have very recently decided to set this up again from scratch and bought
some new HDD's (again x3, 4TB drives in SHR / RAID-5)

I am trying to set up the mount points, but I'm struggling.

Steps already taken:

1. Set up a static ip (via DHCP reservation) address for my NAS

2. Set up a static ip (via DHCP reservation) address for my client PC

3. (On the NAS)
Added both the NAS and the client PC to the hosts file
Added both the NAS and the client PC to the hosts.allowed file

4. (On the client PC)
Added both the NAS and the client PC to the hosts file
Added both the NAS and the client PC to the hosts.allowed file

5. (On the NAS)
Added both the NAS and the client PC to the exports file

6. (On the client PC)
Added both the NAS and the client PC to the exports file


Questions:

1. How do I create a mount point (on the client PC) to allow it to see / access
the NAS box ?

2. Whic dir, do I create the mount point in ? -
mnt
media
var


3. What other steps do I need to do, in order to get this to work ?


TIA for any help or advice

Useful details:

NAS: Synology DS413J
NAS OS: DSM 6.2.4-25556

PC details:
OS: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
OS type: 64-bit

elster.de and x86-64 Linux - which browser?

Linux Questions - Tue, 10/18/2022 - 12:47
This is a very specific question most probably only German based users can help me with.
I registered with elster.de and finally got all info from them (the postal service took more than 2 months to deliver the needed letter) but login would not work.
I looked up the requirements and used a browser their site claims would work (a Firefox ESR) - but it did not.

I emailed their "technical hotline" and told them about it and that I did all their "technical requirements" said is needed for elster to work� and realized the folks answering questions have no clue about IT and especially about technical issues concerning Linux, they just kept repeating the same text as read from a fixed script� telling me info I already knew and being zero helpful about the issue�

Therefore: Who managed to get elster.de to run, and which browser did you use?
Or did you have to tweak settings, e.g. change what the browser tells the server what program and/or version it is?
