My thoughts
Me on launchpad PPA
Evidently one of my mini-apps was useful enough to make it on to Webupd8
Do you use/like that app? Maybe you want to help fund a cryptogram game

comment Multi-display Nvidia issue, desktop sliding on secondary display - Ubuntu 14.04
I wasn't saying it's universal bugs. I was saying, everyone that uses it has some corner case bug just like this one, but different.

Just a heads up, you're going to have a hard time getting answers for hybrid/optirun configs. Everyone knows it's still super-buggy, so they typically don't buy the hardware.

This sounds like an arch question. You're specifically told NOT to do that in the PEP. Arch does it anyway.

It sounds like you're asking someone to write your thesis for you. Someone already linked to available solutions... so, for my thesis I built something. You seem to be asking for someone to give you a drop-in thesis.

comment Intel Wireless N 7260 disconnects and asks for password
Allowing for more deviation from the standard isn't operating to standard. The fault isn't in the linux driver usually, it's in poor non-compliant versions that somehow work anyway.

Show me a pull request and a denial with a list of reasons. Then, I'll read that and quote it back to you.

Then get the patches accepted upstream.

I can make a ford pento run flawlessly. That doesn't make it a ferrari. I wouldn't choose that engine swap either.

comment Intel Wireless N 7260 disconnects and asks for password
The problem is hacky patches that aren't accepted upstream. So forks work, but mainline doesn't... at least until later when someone rewrites the patch to handle other conditions.

So, who told you atheros and realtek were the same thing? I had a vendor at defcon try to tell me the same. I wasn't an SE target. Atheros or bust for me.

I've had bad luck with inegrated intel wireless N cards. I just pop an ath9k card in there and it works like a champ.

comment Faststone Image Resizer equivalent for Ubuntu
Gimp can do that and can be driven from the cli - see the "Changing the Size (Dimensions) of an Image (Scale)" in this

scaling up or down. one is simple resize, the other is rasterizing to scale up like rasterbator.net

comment Game Engines in Ubuntu like Unreal Engine 4 or Unreal Development Kit
UE4 and the UDK can be compiled from source if you pay to subscribe to their github for a month. The UDK is a little sketchier, but some people report success.

What features did it have that you are looking for in alternative software? People that just know what linux software or webservice software does, might not be familiar with that one killer feature that made this a solution for you.

comment Xubuntu 14.10 (Thunar) won't auto-mount exfat partitions even with exfat-fuse and exfat-utils installed
That's really weird. I use XFCE on my daily driver, but all of my storage devices I use every day are ext4 or NTFS. I'll try to find one that uses fat to see if I can replicate.

comment Open cl in intel
After reading that and the linked thread, the beigenet days may be numbered. If a lot of code is actually being duplicated - it would seem that, I at least, don't particularly care if it stays split or not. The easiest approach may be to see when Gallium/Clover get to a stable API (I'm not up on that, so...), then beat the missing parts from beigenet (the not duplicated pieces) in to talking to that API instead. Either way. It's probably a lot like the avconv/ffmpeg battle that I also don't really feel a need to get in on.

That makes sense. I would be more on board with something like slapping it in jockey, update-alternatives, or whatever. Switch libraries with something that's supposed to switch libraries? Sure, that seems like a good idea for an untenable situation.
