I am an Ubuntu Member living in Poland.

I can help others at programming, MIDI and audio setups, audio software, insight into the community, python tricks, GTK hacking, and some general ubuntu setups.

I try to visit this site regularly, as I love helping others - which means I try to answer whenever I can! :)

comment How do I type umlauts etc in Xubuntu 14.04?
So my guess is that you might be happy with installing multiple keyboard layouts, switching between them using the indicator (or with keyboard shortcuts), and occasionally displaying character map for given keyboard layout (if you need to learn how to type a particular rare latter like щ). Does this sound good?

Also: you do not need a "Compose" key on your keyboard. By default, you can use Ctrl+Shift+U to compose a character. Press and hold Ctrl+Shift+U (an underlined 'u' should appear). Keep Ctrl held, but release Shift and U. Type in a hex unicode number for desired character (e.g. e4 for ä), then release Ctrl, and the character will appear.

It may be helpful to add whether you wish to write such characters occasionally, or whether you'd prefer to customize your keyboard layout. I mean: are you German, do you expect to use umlauts in your primary language? Or do you need to type such character just once in a while?

comment hello i want to mine with minerd, i have the file, but i don't know the OPTIONS
I reccomend you to read the documentation of that command you are using (you can start with minerd --help), as this issue is not ubuntu-specific and neither ubuntu-related - you probably need to add some command line arguments when launching that program.

Knowing how to use a tool is just as important as knowing which tool to use.

@bodhi.zazen - thanks, but I do not have any problem - I have just noted that this may not work for some particular modules :)

Apparently this does not work for i915: i915: unknown parameter 'blacklist' ignored.
