Linux color calibration in 2008?

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008

Dear Lazyweb, I remember seeing things about color calibration using a Spyder2 way back in 2007.  Has much progressed?  How would one do this in 2008 on openSUSE 10.3, specifically?

(Hopefully someone like Hubert Figuière will come to the rescue.)

Thanks in advance!

Squiggles and dots

Friday, February 1st, 2008

Dear “lazyweb“,

How do I type all those funny European squiggles and dots on the mere 26-letter US keyboard on my Lenovo X61 laptop in Linux? Searching Google and copy-pasting found characters is getting old pretty quickly. The correct way to type these characters is not obvious.

If it involves special scripts and downloading configuration files, I am not interested. How would one of those normal, non-geek user do this? I’d like to know the proper way.

(For “bonus points”, typing a Euro sign would be great too.)

Thanks in advance,
