PEBKAC - Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair

PEBKAC is what I know as PEBEBE - Problem Exists Between Ears Behind Eyes

All those people suck, they do not know anything right. I'm using Linux with desktop-environment anywhere I could. My last successfull project was to setup fully working Ubuntu on a 8Inch-Win10-tablet right after I finished my galaxy S4 with specialized debian 8 and I'm proud to work at a PC with Xubuntu, Lubuntu, VLocity and Lucid Puppy every day.
I hope one day will come, they just shut up starting to use anything not closed and nailed for paying to use.

UPDATE
Version A1.4 has been built is now available for testing.

On this build, look for the following:

* Linux kernel has been update to LTS 4.4.9
* Hibernate button is back to logout dialog.  Default settings hibernate to swap, so if you add a swap partition at install time, you should be able to hibernate your machine.

[...]

Enjoy ;)

Cool stuff wigums! Thank you for telling us! ;-)
4.4.9? Nice, I tried on Xubuntu, but it was a mess...

I installed on virtualbox and on my Laptop, everything works fine, even the lousy bcm-WLAN-Card AND it hibernates so fast and restarting takes less than 10 sec.!! Well done work!

BUT, I have a little problem that resides anywhere since 7.1 and I can't find it:
I set everything up for german locale but I cant get the login to the right charset, it keeps its english preset.
To clearify in my humbly english, typing in Z and Y are switched, ü, ö and ä does not exist and the login environment does not save the language settings, every start is is reset to (english/canada).

I made the systems autologin as a workaround, but if I logout the problem pops up again, I realise after 3 denied tries to login and it is something else than secure... :-(

Where do I have to look to solve this little problem?

@wigums   Your absolutely correct. Peers in this case not applied. Peers,illegal and other words are just thrown out to meet the law but not applied or enforced.

In this case, the jury was thanked by the judge on the thoughtfulness and thoroughness of their deliberations.

Quote
Judge William Alsup, who also presided over Oracle’s copyright case against Google, frequently praised the jury for its thoughtful approach to this case. In a somewhat unusual move, Alsup allowed jurors to take their notes home with them before they heard closing arguments in the case and during their deliberations, so they could study the facts.

this argument has nothing to do with my opinions of this case. it has to dowith the people involved
and this can be applied to almost any tech involved court cases

my problem with this is that jurors more than likely have no idea
what they are looking at, hearing about, deliberating on.

one of the major fallacies about the american court system is that you get a jury of your peers.
nothing could be farther from the truth. the point being that imo regular old average joe american
isnt knowledgable enough to make these types of decisions. im not implying they are stupid, only
that most americans are ignorant of such things. in fact most people in the entire world are.
this also includes the judges/lawyers involved in the case

not only are they more than likely ignorant of of the tech(and the licenses involved) they are making
decisions about. but this means they also have no idea what the rammifications of their decisions will be

And, of course, Oracle plans to appeal. Again.

Pathetic.
