Re: How to slow down mouse under X windows.

Have you tried using xinput? $ xinput $ xinput --list-props 6 (where 6 is the id= for the device in question) $ xinput --set-prop 6 243 0.5 (where 243 is the property to change and 0.5 is the value to change it to) Not really intuitive, but in a world where xorg.conf is less relevant, one way to adj...

Re: jackdbus crashing regularly in raspbian after update.

Still stable with the arbitrator (snd-aloop / alsaloop), even with multiple sources hitting the RPi at the same time. On the plus side I can push the RPi 3B+ to 24 bit and 192kHz. Which adjusts the alsaloop a bit. One quirk is having to stop / start pulseaudio (client side) to another user if I swit...

Re: Why do I have an dynamic (DHCP) IP address if setting a static IP address on Raspian Lite Stretch?

It's because dhcpcd is running at boot. My post boot steps involve stopping it and wpa_supplicant, since I'm only using ethernet. Of course avahi-daemon also sets up a network at boot (if you don't set one), which is another thing I stop (although certain things start it up again) and adjust with ip...

Re: STICKY: Analog audio problems? post comments here!

You can use pulseaudio over a network. The client setup is fairly simple. echo "default-server = 192.168.1.99" > $HOME/.config/pulse/client.conf Might need to mkdir .config/pulse the first time around. The server setup requires another computer and various config changes to /etc/pulse/client.conf /e...

With the current setup, it is consistently dying at 1 hour of use. Almost exactly 1 hour. Plus 2-ish minutes but that's probably how long it takes me to reload the client to start using audio again. It'll work several hours if it's not using more than an hour of audio. With two audio clients (music ...

Re: One of my Pi:s cannot connect to internet, needs 192.168.x.x, gets 169.254.x.x.

Seems like avahi-daemon is stomping on your toes. (steps on mine too). It sets up a default ip/route when it thinks it didn't find one. Which overrides the route you "want" to take. $ sudo ip addr del 169.254.156.66/16 dev eth0 $ sudo ip route add default via 192.168.1.1 dev eth0 Is a regular part o...
