Re: Hardware Recommendations for Laptop Please

^ I have a ThinkPad T410 to try it on; currently running MX Linux 19. With all the problems I've had with hibernate/sleep/resume in the past, I don't use it but maybe it time to revisit that. I'll report back.

A mind is a terrible thing not to change.
The problem lies not with new ideas, but in escaping the old ones.

Re: Hardware Recommendations for Laptop Please

I still don't fully understand how the dual batteries work; I thought the internal battery was just good for a few minutes, enough to change the external battery, but according to xfce4-power-manager the laptop has been on standby on the internal battery since sunday, the external is still at 99%... Anyhow, battery life is good. I just might stick to bunsenlabs.
Also got the fingerprint reader to work, yay!

The first real minus: There's no visual confirmation (LED) for CapsLock mad

Find an indicator applet for panel or a small conky indicator perhaps?

xset q | grep "Caps Lock:"

^ Thanks, I know. It's just not the same though, isn't it...
