Picture Gallery
April 21st, 2007 under Website Status. [ Comments: none ]

I finally decided which picture album I will use. It is Gallery, a nice and highly configurable open source website. I am going to use my gallery to publish my less artistic (or maybe just wannabe artistic) pictures.

Feel free to check it out under pictures.ganymede.ch


Laptop Display closed => Display off
April 8th, 2007 under Linux. [ Comments: none ]

For all those who want their laptop to be a little bit less power consuming try this to turn off the display when the laptop lid is closed. ACPI Daemon and vbetool are needed for this to work.

/etc/acpi/events/lid:

event=button[ /]lid
action=/etc/acpi/lid.sh %e

/etc/acpi/lid.sh:

#!/bin/bash
if [ ! “$(cat /proc/acpi/button/lid/LID/state | grep open)” = “” ]; then
vbetool dpms on
else
vbetool dpms off
