yes. it's a translucent piece of plastic whose brightness directly correlates to the brightness of your display. All you need is something that will dim and brighten your display in time to your music.

That is because those programs are part of cups, developed by Apple. That a program (suite) is open source doesn't mean that the developer, or the company (partly) paying for development cannot claim copyright on their effort.

CUPs was once an independent project, but was purchased by Apple in 2007 from the CUPs creator, Michael Sweet, as mentioned in the CUPS Wikipedia page.

GNU/Linux is written by many many people. Not just by Ubuntu. Ubuntu took a distribution (like a compilation album, do you remember them?) from Debian, and “improved it”. This compilation/distribution from Debian is a collection of software from many sources including: The GNU project for the compiler, some libraries, and a lot of userland tools. X11 ...

This should involve some kind of emulation such as linprocfs that will allow you to run Linux binaries inside FreeBSD. I don´t think that such technology exists, where you will be able to run Linux binaries inside XNU. However, you could give it a try on the PureDarwin software distribution, that is a Darwin compilation and it will allow you to user ...

First, do not use fdisk with GPT. Second, since the disk is indeed failing and considering that you have ample free disk space the best thing you can do is clone the entire disk to an image and then work on that image without caring about the disk. You can do this with dd if=/dev/sdc of=image_of_disk.img, assuming that the failing disk is /dev/sdc and it is ...

In an older discussion a solution is given with a kernel boot parameter which might be preferable (system-wide application, modification of just a line in /etc/default/grub, etc). Only according to that solution, fnmode is set to 2 instead of 0. I just tried to set hid_apple/parameters/fnmode to 2, and it has the desired effect too. Maybe the logic is ...

I figured out that it is pretty simple to change the behaviour of this modifier, As root change the value in the file /sys/module/hid_apple/parameters/fnmode from 1 to 0. For example: # echo 0 > /sys/module/hid_apple/parameters/fnmode Note that in some older versions of linux, this file was located in /sys/module/apple/parameters/fnmode. Also, this change ...

Usually, if you'll wait a moment when the MAC shows up, it'll replace it with the device's name. At least that's how it happens on my system. Many keyboards and small devices default to '0000' as their PIN, and the system automatically tries that in many cases. Are you sure the keyboard isn't connected? Try it. EDIT: I pulled this from another of my ...

My keyboard is the same. Here is the patch I've made against the linux kernel 3.4 in order to make the "fn" key work. diff -aur linux-3.4.pristine/drivers/hid/hid-apple.c linux-3.4.new/drivers/hid/hid-apple.c --- linux-3.4.pristine/drivers/hid/hid-apple.c 2012-07-15 04:45:54.489209371 -0300 +++ linux-3.4.new/drivers/hid/hid-apple.c 2012-07-15 ...

I finally got the fn key working! I had to compile my own kernel module to do so. I think I coulda solved it in an easier way, but here's what I did: I found this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/942184 The very first patch posted on that page had my solution: ...

Get Spotify (the program, whether or not you actually use the streaming music is up to you). Yes, I know I sound like a corporate sock. It does sync the 6G, though, and it works almost flawlessly for that.
