Asus X202E touchpad sensitivity with Ubuntu

The ones out there who decided to drop Windows 8 in favor of Ubuntu after buying an Asus X202E will probably face the issue of a too sensitive touchpad which makes the laptop barely usable, with a lot of random unwanted clicks especially during the “two finger scrolling”. The two finger scrolling is a feature I really don’t want to give up as well as the touch to click one, as i find them really convenient as long as I have to use the laptop as laptop, which means without an external pointing device such as a mouse.

Ubuntu & Debian FIX java plugin for Firefox and Chrome

How to Fix java plugin in Ubuntu for Firefox/Chrome

The error:

Your browser Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome refuses to execute a java applet because of the security risks related to an old version of java, most likely the jdk1.7.0_40 which has been disabled by Mozilla Firefox plugin mantainers on October the 16th. So you probably want to install jdk1.7.0_45.  Anyway, this said, this procedure will most likely work with following versions of Java, Firefox, Chrome, Ubuntu 🙂 And of course. if you need to install Java for your browsers or operating system and you haven’t yet installed once, just skip the parts with the “rm” command as the rest is the same.

Well thanks Linus Torvalds for this unwanted advice for me and for all potential chromebook customers.
What now? Probably Lenovo, or something cheaper. Any case the operating system “will be” or “will be replaced with”: Debian.

Debian Wheezy on my Macbook, cool.

Another one bites the dust

Picture of my macbook running Debian
Mac running Deb.
Sorry for image ugliness, but i wanted to show both screen content and the macbook.

I couldn’t resist and at the end I managed to get Debian running on my macbook.

I kept myself the chance to reboot on OsX using refit (which now is discontinued in favor of refind) and grub, but the truth is that since then i never rebooted on Os X again. Not even once.

Why?

Well, first of all let me say that the more packages you install, the more you realize that this distro has nothing less (apart the price) than the commercial OSs.

Some info about my Mac:

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo

Memory : 4Gb @ 1067Mhz
