I ran into an interesting issue when trying to connect to a new printer with my Linux laptop. The printer firmware was set up for 250000 baud and for some reason I couldn’t connect to it. After a little searching, I found that this was a known issue in pyserial with newer kernels and there’s a quick fix.
This is just a quickie, nothing too in-depth here. I just thought I’d mention that I’ve migrated all of my computers from Ubuntu to CrunchBang. I enjoy the lighter and more responsive interface, as well as the lower system overhead. It fits my workflow and interaction style well.
I don’t need a high degree of customization to be happy, I just want my customizations to conky and the openbox menu to be consistent between my various computers.
