Banana Pi on Bananian

After ongoing stability problems (i.e. freezes) with LUbuntu I switched to Bananian two weeks ago and the BPI is now running solid and stable.

Changing the power supply and SD card did not help the former behaviour in contrast to the change from LUbuntu to Bananian.

Linux Mint 17/Qiana (KDE Edition)

I applied a classical (in the context of Debian) upgrade on my Linux Mint installation and even though Mint is not recommending this option (instead their favorite is a fresh install with restore). Nevertheless my system still works without drawbacks.

Logitech Presenter R400 in Linux Mint

In general the Presenter R400 works fine, it’s immediately active after the USB receiver is plugged in and the keys representing Page Up/Down are working out of the box. Thus presentations in LibreOffice/OpenOffice, PDF Viewer (in my case Okular) and Google Docs are stepping forward and backwards using the main keys.

In contrast the smaller keys for jumping to presentation mode and disabling the display are sending codes, that the KDE desktop can’t process.
