Re: Brightness Control under Debian9 with i3 on ThinkPad X20

$ xbacklight -inc 10 No outputs have backlight property $ To get that command working try installing the xserver-xorg-video-intel package then check the X.Org log to see if it is being used (I think the modesetting driver may be the default for Intel hardware under Debian buster). xserver-xorg-vide...

Re: Brightness Control under Debian9 with i3 on ThinkPad X20

Sorry for my late reply, I didn't get a mail notification for some reason. Well, great to see a "CrunchBanger" here! You gave me first GNU/Linux support for #! some years ago! :D Does the xbacklight command work if you try it from a terminal? Sry, no: $ xbacklight -inc 10 No outputs have b...

Re: Multi-arch Live USB?

You must NOT select a mirror. Check at the end of the list. If you select one that is not reachable, of course you will get an error. I can not prove it but I think something is pre-selected in the list. The end of the list is "Vietnam" in my case. But accidently I just recognized that &q...

Yes, really. When prompted, just confirm that you want to proceed without a mirror. Just tried: "Configure the packafe manager" -> (<Country> selection) -> Continue -> ftp.xx.debian.org -> Continue -> (<Proxy> setup) -> Continue -> "Bad archive error - An error has been detected whil...

Re: Multi-arch Live USB?

The current Debian installer ISO-hybrid images for amd64 combine PC BIOS and 64-bit PC EFI boot capabilities, so it won't boot on a computer with a 32-bit PC EFI firmware without BIOS/legacy compatibility. The BIOS of the Asus T100 doesn't provide any option for legacy compatibility. But the curren...

Re: Multi-arch Live USB?

Can you elaborate ? Neither a 64bit-only ISO nor a 32bit-only ISO is recognized when I try to boot from it (but a multi-arch is). Can you explain why a single USB port prevents to finish the installation ? AS far as I noticed there are only multi-arch netinstall ISO to download so during installati...

Re: Problems installing ecryptfs-utils (libnss3-1d) on Jessy

Can't aptitude work around the pinning messes, and even better if you tell it exactly what version to install? Apt itself may also work if you specify the version: # apt install libnss3-1d=2:3.17.2-1.1+deb8u2 Fantastic. This worked for me! Thank you so much! # apt install libnss3-1d=2:3.17.2-1.1+de...
