Re: Loud annoying system beep at login screen solution

paste the following in the terminal: sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf substitute gedit for your favoured text editor) and add the following line at the end for the file: options snd_hda_intel beep_mode=0 Click save and reboot. No annoying beep. That was the ONLY thing that really helped me...

Re: faster internet + security!

The only thing I had to complain is the swappiness part:

Code: Select all

vm.swappiness= 10
vm.vfs_cache_pressure = 50
I would move them to a separate file like "/etc/sysctl.d/swappiness.conf".

I would also safe the network config settings in a separate file like "/etc/sysctl.d/net-security.conf".

Re: Language pack for French under Xfce?

I think the Debian equivalent for "language-pack-gnome-fr" is "task-french-desktop".

You can install it with:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install task-french-desktop
