Re: bluetooth ear buds configuration (TRNDlabs)

Thanks for everyone's help. I'm marking this solved because the earbuds work on my new zbox nano as far as pairing, but still I am working on the audio being recognized by alsa or pulseaudio, which has been submitted using apport, since I am using them on Ubuntu Studio..

Re: 'at' to kill pids and shut down

Doc and examples of using at , like: at -m 01:35 < my-at-jobs.txt In the my-at-jobs.txt, you could include commands. Thanks for th...

Re: zotac zbox nano freeze

Sorry, I was in a rush when I made my last post. I should have explained better. The Cstate fix is in grub. Add this to: /etc/default/grub GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash intel_idle.max_cstate=2" Then run: update-grub and reboot. This is what the first portion of my grub file looks like: G...

Don't know if it applies to your Zotac, but mine (older ION) gets hot, any chance yours is overheating? Mine got better after I took it apart and replaced the thermal compound, there was some weird stuff from manufacturer that even didn't resemble proper paste. I have considered it may be overheati...

This way when running the first scan in simple-scan it will find the scanner but not scan anything. You will then have to "choose another scanner" t...

It seems to do this way more than I'd like to be patient for, but...
