iam planning to revive the Trinity Rescue kit back from the dead!

1 hour 33 min ago

Hi All, i was looking at Trinity Rescue kit and i remember TRK hasnt been updated it in an few years. so i did some research and found how to create your own TRK and i decided to bring it back from the dead and update all of the tools if possible and even add some if i can. currently iam loading up the 2010 vmdk file onto my box and will be doing some testing before i release it. if their are tools / programs you would see in the program. let me know also, iam thinking of converting it over to an Debian based os to make things easier or just upgrade the current Mandrake Linux 2005 to an more updated distro like openmandriva or something.

note quite sure if its even possible to get TRK setup on an Debian 8 or Ubuntu based live cd. so if anyone wants to try to getting something working go ahead and let me know how it goes. my end goal is to ether have an updated TRK on Ubuntu 16.04 or even Debian 8 jessie.

Is Linux That Bad at Gaming?

The pcmasterrace subreddit seems to really hate Qine for gaming. Is it that bad? Thanks.

Should we make an effort to make hardware stop claiming to be "Linux Supported!" if it stopped working after a kernel released years ago?

Tue, 2016-09-27 22:36

Currently going through one of these right now. Bought a WiFi adapter that had great claims of Linux support on the description and box, saw lots of (old) forums claiming success, then find out even the most stable distros can't use it because it stopped working and even crashes kernels beyond 2.6

Obviously I could've done more investigation before buying, but why can they claim Linux support when no Linux desktop distros will work with their products anymore? Anyone else have similar experiences?

Making CTRL + ALT act like AltGr (level3) in xkb

Tue, 2016-09-27 21:57

Hi, I want to make CTRL + ALT to act like AltGr. From what I have understood it is possible to do this by modifying the level 3 file.

I have followed the second answer in this thread :

I have opened the level 3 file in gedit. So I have to change key <RALT> to CTRL + ALT. What do I write inside the <>? <LCTL + LALT>, <LCTL> + <LALT> or what?

If anyone could help me with this I would greatly appreciate it :)
