A lot of places recommend to use the following tmux config to disable the (outer) terminal emulator's alternate screen:
set -g terminal-overrides 'xterm*:smcup@:rmcup@'
But this will override the default value of the `terminal-overrides` setting, and therefore the following should be used instead:
set -ga terminal-overrides ',xterm*:smcup@:rmcup@'
Without using the "append" (-a) option with "set", the defaults would be overwritten, which are currently:
*256col*:colors=256,xterm*:XT:Ms=\E]52;%p1%s;%p2%s\007:Cs=\E]12;%p1%s\007:Cr=\E]112\007:Ss=\E[%p1%d q:Se=\E[2 q,screen*:XT
Another method to remove the "smcup" and "rmcup" capabilities globally is the following (via ~/.zshrc, ~/.bashrc etc):
There is this nice method of suspending a computer to RAM (which is quick to suspend and resume, but still uses some battery) and after a given amount of time to disk, if it has not been waken up since then (e.g. after 15 minutes).
Ubuntu (and any other distribution using pm-utils) supports this via the pm-utils package and its pm-suspend-hybrid script.
Unfortunately this is not used by default (even hibernation is not available from the menu by default), but only normal suspend.
The following configuration snippet will make pm-utils use the "suspend_hybrid" method instead of "suspend" when being invoked:
You have to create a file like
/etc/pm/config.d/00-use-suspend-hybrid and add the following code (e.g. via
sudo -e /etc/pm/config.d/00-use-suspend-hybrid):
I came up with this solution after having asked for a method to do so at Ask Ubuntu.
This way hybrid suspend will be used automatically if you select e.g. "Suspend" from the menu or close your laptop's lid (both actions call
pm-suspend which then gets remapped).
You can configure the amount of time before hibernation (Suspend To Disk) is being invoked with the PM_HIBERNATE_DELAY variable (in seconds), which you can just configure in the same file, too:
You might want to make sure that the hybrid method is supported on your system via the following code. If it says "0" it should work:
Update (2013-10-09): I have updated my own answer at AskUbuntu with another (really hybrid, often preferred method), which you can use with Linux 3.6+.
Habe mir ein Solid State Drive gegönnt: eine OCZ Vertex 2, 120GB.
Seit längerem schon als Performance-Upgrade angedacht, und um meine doch sehr "nervig knatternde" Raptor-Platte abzulösen.
Ich habe nun meine "root"-Partition (wo das System drauf liegt) und die "home"-Partition (wo Benutzerdaten liegen) dorthin verschoben: das System startet viel schneller, ebenso wie sich Programme merklich schneller starten lassen.
Einfach ein sehr sinnvolles Upgrade!
Es ist schon erstaunlich, wenn eine IE5 Installation unter Ubuntu von 2006-06-18 immer noch läuft.
Hatte das damals mit ie4linux installiert, wenn ich mich recht erinnere - und wine packt es einfach weiterhin, auch wenn ich es jahrelang nicht genutzt habe (und weiterhin nicht nutzen werde).
To configure my Kingsis Peripherals Evoluent VerticalMouse 3, I've added the following fdi (HAL configuration info) to
The most important part (for me) here is ButtonMapping: by default only the wheelbutton triggers middle click, but since it's rather hard to press (and I use it often for pasting), I've mapped it to the middle button on the right side, too.
Also, the thumb button becomes "Back" (in browsers) and the lowest button on the right triggers the context menu.
Update: This was meant to included in Ubuntu Karmic (see bug 451729), but then got removed again (not everybody liked it).
Update^2: for udev (which is used solely since Ubuntu Lucid), I've transformed it into the following file (which you can store as
(see also https://wiki.kubuntu.org/X/InputConfiguration for more information)
Update^3: This is bugged in Ubuntu Lucid.
POPFile lets you easily handle your POP/IMAP email incoming folders and filters your mails into "buckets".
It allows more than the usual "spam" / "ham" buckets - you can use it to filter by language, too.
I have quite a special email setup, and it says currently:
Messages classified: 108,230 Classification errors: 2,948 Accuracy: 97.27%
My buckets are: b2evo, backscatter, bugs, jedit, logspam, newsletter, personal, server, spam, traffic-watch, ubuntu, ubuntu-ack
Training messages into new buckets is as easy as moving them into another folder, when using IMAP - the POPFile process will recognize the movement and re-train this message.
If you're still using POP3, POPFile is a nice application anyway (it can be used as a proxy), but please consider switching to IMAP for your own sake.
