  1. I know you can open the thing by making it executable and then clicking on it. But I like to open apps using the windows/super key instead of a shortcut on the desktop. Is there a way to make it able to see a .appimage file as a system wide app you can search for
  2. I installed manjaro on m laptop earlier but have noticed a serious problem. Whenever I close my latop lid, the thing does not suspend itself correctly. For example, I unpluged my laptop after class, with the batter at around 80%, put it in my laptop bag, and just 30 minutes later at work, I grab my laptop only to realise that it has became a toaster with the comuter not onl fully turned off but the battery at 11%. Its like it uses MORE power when it should be sleeping. How can I prevent this behaviour.
  3. What motherboard are you running? is all the memory being detected?
  4. How is the RAM installed? To run dual channel there must be a free slot in between the two sticks. (thanks to how the pinning works)
  5. So I got a long HDMI cable so I can attach my computer to my tv. Now I want this tv to mirror my main display, while a third monitor is extended. The thing is it wasn't hard to figure out to write this (xrandr --output DVI-D-0 --output DP-1 --output HDMI-0 --same-as DP-1) command that configures it to what I want. and its not real hard to do it with nvidia x server either. The problem is that whenever the tv/hdmi cable is unplugged, it reverts back to exending everything and I have to redo the command. Is there a way to make ubuntu automatically do this when it detects HDMI-0 being plugged in
  6. My sibling is trying to mod Minecraft but the game crashes with error code -1 seconds after launch. We are using multimc latest.logCrash report attached
  7. I am trying to repourpose a chromebook by using it to be a wireless display from my desktop to a tv using VNC. I got the computers to connect but all I get is this strange pattern instead of the desktop. this is the log from the vnc server 06/01/21 15:44:45 Xvnc version TightVNC-1.3.10 06/01/21 15:44:45 Copyright (C) 2000-2009 TightVNC Group 06/01/21 15:44:45 Copyright (C) 1999 AT&T Laboratories Cambridge 06/01/21 15:44:45 All Rights Reserved. 06/01/21 15:44:45 See http://www.tightvnc.com/ for information on TightVNC 06/01/21 15:44:45 Desktop name 'X' (noa
  8. I've read that running a win10VM can get you a log of the commands required for reverse engineering. I was planning on using that method after I get a foundation from this https://tldp.org/LDP/lkmpg/2.6/html/lkmpg.html#AEN40
  9. again, this is why I want to build the driver myself, can someone just point me to sources on how to revers engineer the device/os, I know this'll be a long and hard project. But I want to try
  10. Did I say I expected something different? Why do you think I want to develop a driver for it instead of waiting
  11. Well, I'm supposed to be a comp science major, so even if i fail at this, I'd figured that it'll be a good learning experience. And I doubt it, Lenovo still ships their computers with locked bios, so you have to buy their hardware to upgrade your computer. Doesn't sound like a company that likes linux's open nature
  12. So I made my Lenovo flex 14 API dual boot with a instance of ubuntu 20.04, and the win10 it came with. Now I'm trying to get the fingerprint reader to work, but after some research I realised that a driver for this fingerprint reader https://linux-hardware.org/index.php?id=usb:27c6-55b4 Does not have a driver. So I am stuck with either waiting for someone else to make one, or do it myself. But I've never made a driver. So Can someone give me a starting ground for it. Also, I'm not sure whether this should go here or in programming, but every time I've had
  13. There are also some buttons on the tablet themselves that I would like to remap
  14. So I got this old drwaing tablet from UGEE installed on my computer running ununtu 20.04, and so far its working great. I found a way to remap the input to be only on my main display thanks to a tutorial I will link, but the scipt it gave me was under the assumption that the tablet supports WACOM drivers. and all my searching shows how to remap them for thses sort of drawing tablets, but I can;t find anything that'll work for my tablet. I would like the bottom button to be for erasing on krita, while the top button would be a scrol/zoom gesture if thats possible tutorial: ht
  15. You sure this is the right part? the bezzels look quite a bit diffrent. For one, there's no lenovo branding on the bottom.
