Brightness Controller - A Simple GUI for controlling brightness (multi-display /external display supported)

Reddit - Sat, 2017-08-19 08:00

Hi,

I made this because

  • moving towards secondary/external display and changing its brightness manually seemed tedious
  • needed a finer control related to brightness

Luckily xrandr makes the job much easier through the CLI so I simply made a GUI around it using pyside.

Hopefully, this will be useful for those who are sensitive to brightness :)

Actually, Ellison & Company has always seemed to have trouble wrapping its head around open source, so much so that whenever the company inherits established open source projects -- as happened seven years ago when it acquired Sun Microsystems -- die hard open source advocates find themselves running for the hills, fearing that revolution is nigh.

How many Linux distributions have you tried from the top 100 list of Distrowatch?

Reddit - Sat, 2017-08-19 05:28

Just for fun, I counted, and I tried 25 of them. Most on bare metal. Some in VirtualBox.

Long time lurker, boot loop on Latitude E6510

Reddit - Sat, 2017-08-19 00:53

So long story short, I have a fresh bootable USB with Mint and I was able to snag a E6510 from a decom job. Now when I hit F12 and select boot from USB it goes into the normal Automatic Boot in "X" Seconds then i hear the CD and HDD stop spinning and keeps on going. I have a brand new just unopened WD 250 HDD inside plus 4gb of RAM inside. Any help with my situation? Thanks.

(Edit: If this doesn't belong here let me know, and two I am on mobile so my apologies for not having flair)

Need help with Apache2

Reddit - Sat, 2017-08-19 00:44

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to allow other computers on my LAN to access webpages served by apache2 on a computer running Lubuntu 16.04. I have literally set every-single-effing-file to rwxrwxrwx, and yet I am unable to access any webpages.

 

For Dokuwiki I get: You don't have permission to access /dokuwiki on this server.

 

I have spent the last week trying to get this to work, and have gone through tens-of-thousands of posts, and hundreds if not thousands of websites. I need someone to help me figure this out, and to literally explain how-to fix this step-by-step in layman's terms.

 

I've tried everything that i've been able to find, but most of it was from people who ov=bviously had no clue what in the hell they were talking about (and neither do I obviously). People kept talking about modifying this-and-that file, and yet these files don't exist. Or add this, and that, and other nonsense that just didn't work. YES IM SUPER FREAKING FRUSTRATED, AND YES I APOLOGIZE FOR SOUNDING LIKE AN A-HOLE, but freakin' A this shouldn't be this damn hard.

Chakra Linux: Its Own Beast, Its Own Beauty

LXer - Sat, 2017-08-19 00:36
There are so many Linux distributions available—so many, in fact, that it can become a bit of a challenge to find the one right for you. After you’ve looked at them enough, it seems the variations tend to blur together, such that one flavor of Linux is only a slight shift away from another.
