openSUSE 42.2 on Raspberry Pi

Dutch openSUSE on Raspberry Pi 3 HOWTO


Subscription Management Tool

Check out my Subscription Management Tool appliance at the SUSE Studio site.

Interop Demo

The Interop Demo appliance can be used to demonstrate the capabilities of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2 when working in a Windows environment. The appliance has been prepared for the following use cases in terms of software:

Use case 1: SLES Participating in an Active Directory domain

Integrating with Active Directory as authentication and authorization source is a frequent use case in mixed Linux and Windows environments. Winbind, a component of Samba, provides not only the necessary integration with AD but also a PAM module to authenticate and authorize Linux users

Use case 2: Integration of Apache with Active Directory Work in progress

Use case 3: SLES and Samba as domain controller Work in progress

Use case 4: Windows Remote Desktop on Linux Work in progress

Use case 5: Querying MS SQL Server from SLES through ODBC Work in progress



OTRS is an enterprise grade open source Help Desk and ITSM solution. You can download the software here or a ready to go appliance.

Window placement

xdotool lets you programatically (or manually) simulate keyboard input and mouse activity, move and resize windows, etc. It does this using X11's XTEST extension and other Xlib functions.


   WID=`xdotool search --title "Mozilla Firefox"`  #1  
   xdotool windowmove $WID 1440 0                  #2  
   xdotool key --clearmodifiers F11                #3  
  1. . Get window ID WID of Firefox
  2. . Move window identified by WID
  3. . send key F11 (full screen)
Booklet printing

This HOWTO provides an overview of the necessary steps to create a virtual printer which will reformat the printed document into a booklet format. Since this appears as normal printer device, it will process input submitted by any program which is capable of printing using CUPS. All processed documents will be delivered to the user by e-mail in PDF format. The next step is to actually print this document by a (duplex capable) physical printer, and finally fold and staple the pages together to produce the booklet.

Nokia E72

I've got a Nokia E72 phone, which is quite nice, but - as one could have expected - there was no information about how to use the UMTS modem part of it under Linux. Have a look at this page, which describes using the phone through Bluetooth. While at it, I also created an HOWTO about using USB to connect the phone.
