(Previously hostnamed 'Theseus' before an apt-get upgrade crashed that brought it out of service for a while).
This is my Dell laptop computer acquired in December (2017), an enhanced version of wulfrun. It died on 14 February (2020) following a spilt-coffee incident, making me go back to old wulfrun renamed wulfrun2.
To disactivate the touchpad:
xinput set-prop 12 "Device Enabled" 0
I ran into problems with mySQL:
dpkg: error processing package mysql-server-5.7 (--configure): installed mysql-server-5.7 package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 127 dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of mysql-server: mysql-server depends on mysql-server-5.7; however: Package mysql-server-5.7 is not configured yet.
which were fixed following threads #16 and #18 here. In particular, removing (apt-remove) packages listed through:
dpkg -l | grep -i mysql
Although not all of them would go (e.g., akonadi). Then in this process I had to install some directory structure by hand:
sudo mkdir -p /var/run/mysqld sudo chown mysql:mysql /var/run/mysqld
Requires the installation of a separate package:
sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils
