Former robotics engineer converted to web developer and opensource contributor--mostly in Python and PHP. I enjoy automating drudgery and augmenting human decision-making with software.

comment Reverse two finger scroll direction?
Yea, but yours would match a completely different set of strings than mine. Yours would exclude all strings with "Circular". Mine would exclude only those with "Circular" immediately preceding the "Scrolling". Mine is definitely uglier, but it behaves differently, and it's the only one I've tested and made sure is correct enough (it worked on my machine).

Actually, I was trying to negate one part of the regex and not the other, so no joy on the @joeytwiddle simplification. Regex's don't do negation combined with nonnegation well (-Perl or otherwise)

Indeed. Silly me use -P in one place and not all and make work for myself. Will fix.

comment How do you revert the control keys back to “normal” operation?
unfortunately in 13.04 that flashing pointer option is no longer available in the Trackpad/Mouse settings (or I'm bling and can't find it). so my setting is permanently turned on until I can find it in gconf.

comment How can I receive syslog logs from a networked system?
Also may need to change the ownership of your log file: sudo chown syslog:adm /var/log/syslog or whatever you've named your log file.

My Motorola Surfboard Extreme SBG901 seems to have similar settings to your DD-WRT. Just thought I'd add that keyword for others googling for this q/a.

comment How do I fix a “Wireless is disabled by hardware switch” error?
On an HP Envy laptop if you shutdown with wifi disabled by the hardware switch (Fn F12), then it will be disabled when you boot and network manager will give up trying after 60 seconds, and on each subsequent reboot, whether or not you re-enabled wireless while you were up or did a sudo service network-manager restart.
