For whatever reason, my backlight isin't working. When I press fn+left a backlight slider comes up, but sliding it does nothing. I tried xbacklight, that doesn't work either. Does anyone have any idea how to solve this? submitted by ANAL_PONDERER [link] [comment]

Github link WIP video I've been developing a physics simulations engine for the past few months and its finally gotten to the point where I can tag version 0.1 as released. Written entirely in C using the pthreads, SDL2 and Freetype2 libraries. It uses the vector extensions in C to reduce the complexity and increase the speed using SSE2(if it's detected). For now it can do basic molecular dynamics, electrostatics and gravity simulations, as well as more general systems like objects attached with springs. Everything needed to configure the system is in the config files, including constants, so you can play to your heart's content. It's still far from finished and quite unstable. Parsing text in C is far from the easiest thing to do and molecule files(PDB) are quite complex, so I'll probably be changing that to use Lua. There's no error detection when the files are read so in case your molecule/system disappears it's probably because an object has had it's mass left at 0 or two objects shared the exact same location. The display itself still needs work at the objects are rendered as something close to but not quite a sphere(configurable on compile time, look for the "dj" constant in drawobject(data object) in glfun.c). In the future I'll probably implement dark matter and rigid body simulations. The source code itself should be pretty easy to read, so feel free to take a look. I've added comments whenever I've used cheap tricks and such. The only compilers which I've tested it with are GCC 4.8.2, GCC 4.9 and Clang 3.5. It pretty much sure to crash or not compile with anything older. System integration is nonexistent, so don't even try "sudo make install". Run the physengine.sh file to start it up(needs to be ran in the root of the directory). Quite basic but hey, compared to the incomprehensible giants like LAMMPS(the standard for any molecular dynamics simulations) it's a start. I have no idea how to spread word of what I'm doing so cross post if you feel like it. There's an IRC channel (#physengine on Freenode) so drop in to complain about how it's broken. submitted by atomnuker [link] [comment]

Hi, I'm looking for a good equivalent of GetRight for linux since I started using linux - few years. For all this time I've been using my old GetRight v4.5 that I bought a long time ago under wine, it works very well, but still I'd like something native, maybe even better than GetRight. I'm also using wget to download with resuming when it supports the links I have. Any application I tried wasn't enough to me, I tried jdownloader and some minor apps from ubuntu software center. I need support for links from some file hosts that after clicking the link redirect you few times and the last redirection gives a browser a right link to the file, the link expires after some time and you can't copy it to just use in some other program, the program has to be redirected itself. That's what everything is lacking of. Of course I need those typical features like resuming etc. too. So, if such thing really exists I'd be GREAT :) There's an example of such link I'm talking about higher: http://s6254.chomikuj.pl/File.aspx?e=rknHosHOyD2Mk7-ZgYz0hLJyzjWSjyaNFoig1A-GFuetrcQydRHHsQM9oieF0DKT-8ilZhQI1z9mjVzXQw8xMFFaU0QasZESNaHiWsxQBQFc6r-77Afre-Gwd-cRtezSkbaEJNc-17xjxHT8y1MLgakYr_OYssVlAjeLwHpGYps&pv=2 It will expire soon though. submitted by destiriser [link] [2 comments]

I've seen Windows95-ish themes for fluxbox and xfce, and gnu/openstep looks nice and boxy, but I'm looking more for something like this: http://www.catb.org/~esr/writings/taouu/html/ch02s05.html Or maybe like MirageOS for the TI-83. One step up (down?) from the curses/text-mode stuff I usually use (mutt/mc/wyrd/etc.) submitted by NiceGuyJoe [link] [3 comments]

Hi, I'm attempting to set-up an email server using Ubuntu 12.04, doing this mainly due to boredom; but I am having some difficulty, I can't seem to find a guide/tutorial that actually goes into depth and explains why I am doing things/explains ALL of the steps. Was wondering if anyone could help me out or provide a source? Thanks submitted by badappleSs [link] [3 comments]
