Link Diary Oktober 2023

Linux Presentation Day is coming up!

This time Tübingen & Reutlingen join forces in the Tübingen library on November 18th.
It'll all be around Linux on the Desktop and daily use.

How to REALLY shut down windows?

Connect a bluetooth device via commandline

I just bought a Keychron K3 Pro and wanted to use it via bluetooth.
Since I use i3, I wanted to do it via commandline instead of a Gnome settings dialog.
This is how to discover a device and pair it via command line:

hcitool scan  # to get the MAC address of your device
agent on
scan on  # wait for your device's address to show up here
scan off

Maybe also helpful:

Ran into swap and do not recover?

swapoff -a # takes a while
swapon -a 

Ubuntu 23.10 not offered to upgrade?
