    cowsay ddate[edit]

    echo "ddate +%." > /etc/profile
    ddate | cowsay | figlet
    fortune | cowsay is also really nice ... ;)
    ps ax | grep egg | figlet > ~/public_html/mybots.txt



    echo waimea > ~/.xinitrc "startx" starts waimea from now on (works with any window manager like fluxbox, windowmaker etc.)

    (there is also ~/.xsession for the same thing )


    customizing your X login screen: (using xdm)[edit]

    to set background color of root window (before login):

    echo " /usr/X11R6/bin/xsetroot -solid black" > /etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup

    instead of "black" you can use the colors defined in /etc/X11/rgb.txt

    the login window itself can be customized in /etc/X11/xdm/Xresources

    examples: (from Xresources)
    xlogin*greeting: zyme.s23

    Flash Player in Debian 64-bit with Iceweasel[edit]


    echo "deb http://www.dipconsultants.com/debian etch main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
    apt-get update
    apt-get install markybob-keyring 
    apt-get update
    apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk nspluginwrapper


    wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
    tar -zxf install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
    mv install_flash_player_9_linux/libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/ 
    nspluginwrapper -i ~/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
    nspluginwrapper -v -a -u

    Followed this tutorial [1] and just changed "mv install_flash_player_9_linux/flashplayer-installer/libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/" to "mv install_flash_player_9_linux/libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/". Everything worked fine and as expected, after the last step i also see "Update plugin /home/mutante/.mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so" but Youtube still doesnt work, says i dont have a flash player :( mutante 20:15, 25 February 2008 (CET)
