This one has caused my some head aches; I wanted to use ISO-8859-1(5) but no matter what I did, GNOME Terminal would select ANSI_X3.4-1968 as character encoding (screwing up everything related to danish characters).
Create or edit the file
$ sudo locale-gen --purge
Log out and from GDM select language “English (Denmark)” and answer yes
The default method of hibernation provided by powermanagement-interface seems to be flaky at best (it does not work on either my T41 or my T61).
Luckily µswsusp works out of the box
After installing the uswsusp package you need to make sure to “remove” ACPI hibernation as this is the first choice of hibernation selected by the HAL scripts called from GNOME. You must also make sure that no other hibernation packages are installed.
$ sudo apt-get remove hibernate
$ sudo apt-get install uswsusp
$ sudo dpkg-divert --rename --divert /etc/acpi/hibernate.sh-disabled /etc/acpi/hibernate.sh
$ sudo ln -sf /sbin/s2disk /usr/sbin/s2disk
If you want to make use of the hibernate button make the following changes:
First we divert the event script used by ACPI so our own script will not be overwritten when the acpi-support package is upgraded
$ sudo dpkg-divert --rename --divert /etc/acpi/hibernatebtn.sh-disabled /etc/acpi/hibernatebtn.sh
Then create a new
with this simple content
Optionally, if you want the spiffy splash screens duringhibernate/restore, also install the splashy and splashy themes (you’ll have to edit
and add a line saying “splash = y” to use them)
$ sudo apt-get install splashy splashy-themes
After taking my time to get around to it I took the exam today and passed. I am now a VMware Certified Professional
