I remember the year before last when Practchett died. It wasn’t sudden, but the grief I felt was like losing a mentor and an angry old man that always seemed to have the insights I needed.

It was actually hard to communicate why since most people didn’t feel the same way. But some people who we may never meet have such a large impact on us that we can’t help but take it personally when they pass.

Comment on Taming Lubuntu on my PowerBook G4 by nubuntubie http://princessleia.com/journal/2013/11/taming-lubuntu-on-my-powerbook-g4/comment-page-1/#comment-28151 Mon, 23 Jan 2017 16:46:03 +0000 http://princessleia.com/journal/?p=8726#comment-28151 Thanks for your help, but in my impatience I upgraded from lubuntu 14 to 16 and that introduced several problems. Nevertheless, I persevered and followed your instructions, but sadly it did not work. There seems to be some error message on boot as well that mentions i2c and after the installation others were evident.

For now I am going to start afresh with 14 and maybe give it a go from there. It is not a deal breaker anyway, more of a luxury really. The main issue I had was no WiFI, but managed to sort it, so anything else was extra.
Thanks once again.

sudo apt install libi2c-dev

Then use sudo with your favorite text editor (nano? vim?) to edit and save the /etc/modules file.

(For a complete newbie).
TIA

Comment on UbuCon EU 2016 by pleia2 http://princessleia.com/journal/2016/12/ubucon-eu-2016/comment-page-1/#comment-28122 Mon, 19 Dec 2016 01:02:48 +0000 http://princessleia.com/journal/?p=12276#comment-28122 This is the first time I’ve used the fund myself (my previous employer paid my way and sponsored events, but I was not employed while speaking at this event), but I never witnessed nepotism in the process when I was on the Community Council (CC). Reports by the community team are released about applicants and specifically what the money is used for, and I haven’t heard any complaints from people saying they’ve been refused funding.

If you have specific knowledge of requests being denied to community members it’s definitely something to bring up with the CC.

Is that fair and equitable?
