I'm a coder/electro-mechanic living in Vienna, Austria.

I've spent my early years with Windows, but migrated to Linux back in '04 and happy with that.


If I hate on thing more than those damn spammers...it's uncommented downvotes!

As far as I can see, the firmwares are no longer available from BenQ, so grab them from my GitHub repo.

comment How to make Window Title font upper-case?
In theory you could use a font which only has upper-case letters...depends on your WM, too (if you can change the font, that is).

An possible easy solution is to simply switch to mdm, a fork of gdm.

comment How to make XFCE show the Shutdown Menu?
I've been investigating this for the last hours. Seems like there are at least ideas for slim and patches for xdm floating around. Unfortunately nothing really useful what I found so far...though, it's the first time I have to deal with Consolekit.

comment How to make XFCE show the Shutdown Menu?
Not really...I verified that it works with lxdm an hour ago and it's rather light if ti comes to dependencies...but not exactly what I want as dm. lightdm might also be an option, but is a little bit heavier.

comment How to make XFCE show the Shutdown Menu?
What Display Manager? xdm, wdm and slim do have problems with ConsoleKit, which disables those buttons, removable storages and some other stuff. I've been just investigating this myself. Known 'workaround' is to use dgm, kdm, lxdm or lightdm.

comment Removing Ubuntu without losing Windows XP
I find it amusing that you suggest Acronis, given that OP has access to a Ubunu Live-CD which contains gparted. And fixmbr needsto be run in both cases.
