Do you use #ArchLinux based #Garuda with #Microsoft #SurfaceBook and cannot use touchscreen?

Well, solution is easy.

sudo rm /usr/lib/modprobe.d/noime.conf

Someone in Garuda team gone nuts blacklisting modules

you should not do any work in /usr/lib, but overlay it in /etc. The former is controlled by your package manager, the latter is made to be managed by the admin.

As I don't consider myself a sysadmin I'm not quite sure how to override this behavior. Feel free to enlighten me.

Thanks for information though 😀

Also, I'm about to create bug-report as soon as I get a little time for that

in reply to Schmaker

depending on what the file does you create a file in /etc that does the opposite. It'll be preferred 😁

I don't know opposite command to blacklist, so I guess load has to do the job...

just for sake of completeness, easiest way to fix this is adding noextract to /etc/pacman.conf

NoExtract = usr/lib/modprobe.d/noime.conf



Make Meta key actually usefull in KDE


In #KDE #PlasmaDesktop i found "Meta" (alias "Windows") key behavior kinda annoying. Let's make it actually usefull:

Open ~/.config/kwinrc

Add this:

[ModifierOnlyShortcuts]
Meta=org.kde.kglobalaccel,/component/kwin,org.kde.kglobalaccel.Component,invokeShortcut,Overview

Logout / Login or run this command:
qdbus org.kde.KWin /KWin reconfigure

Profit 😀
