Hi Rich

Depending on how many cameras you want and where you locate them around your home ip/wireless cameras would probably be the way to go, there is free software available called zoneminder although there may be others but that's the only one I know of, it's not something I've ever done although I've been giving it serious consideration lately for my business premises but haven't got round to it so I can't really offer any more insight but have a look here you might find what you're looking for

Good luck

Hi Rich

If you have the firmware files you have to place them in  /usr/share/sane/gt68xx/


chmod 744 /usr/share/sane/gt68xx/<firmware filename>

Good luck

I know little or nothing about this and I'm not on a laptop to test it but it may be possible to use xbacklight

something like xbacklight -set 10 which will drop the backlight level to 10% and if it works you can write a simple script with a a key combo to make the switch

if you want to try it ensure you have xbacklight installed by opening a terminal

sudo apt-get install xbacklight

then to check the current brightness level

xbacklight -get

Then post back the output (if any)

Good luck

Hi Kevin

Do you have a live USB/CD you can boot up from

If so can you boot up using a live disc open the terminal and post the output of the following command

fdisk -l

QuoteHi Graeme!  Welcome back!  I'd searched for some old posts of yours from the distant past and noticed you hadn't posted in a long while?  Hope all is well with you and a belated Happy New Year to you!

Thank you Rich it's good to be back, and a belated Happy New Year to you too and all my other friends here :)

Quoteor my old favourite (on a LAN) iptux .. though I haven't tested it in a while.

iptux works great, I use it to chat with my grand-daughter even though we're in the same room on different PC's it's a good fun way to help her with her spelling and grammar
