I Like to build and repair computers. I have both a Cubieboard, and Raspberry Pi. I also enjoy refinishing wood furniture.

I like using the terminal, writing basic shell scripts, and sometimes even installing from source :)

Everything I say(type) is not related to anything,
nor does it represent any entity.
The words belong not to anyone.

this may be of interest, pubs.vmware.com/workstation-9/… I think we still need to figure out what happens after the keysym step.

@GerhardBurger It may still look to listen to HAL (possibly backwards compatibility), in your other question did it still display notifications using halevt maybe that is the reason the ? is present.

I would try to understand where the other person is coming from, and consult with fellow moderators if the issue is gray area. If I am wrong, I will stand down on the "issue" and ultimately work towards helping out the user, after-all people come here asking for help. One example of this was this Q: askubuntu.com/q/233065/47291 where there was dispute of weather or not it is on topic, despite my opinions on the subject, we continued to work with the user to Improve the Q, and I was able to solve the question.

yeah the pdf from their first link is quite a read. Strange to see them argue about things we almost take for granted.

That is because it is not possible. Unless you use "natty" which is no longer supported.
