Touchpad settings Ubuntu 13.10

The touchpad on my Thinkpad X1 Carbon was way too sensitive.
I changed the synaptics settings, to get ride of this annoying problem.

First you need to copy the file 50-synaptics.conf:

sudo cp /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/60-synaptics-userdefined.conf 

Be careful, that the copied filename should start with a number greater than 50 and should have .conf as file extension. [1] Like in my case: “60-synaptics-userdefined.conf”.

Now edit the new file 60-synaptics-userdefined.conf.

sudo gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/60-synaptics-userdefined.conf

The following setting worked fine for me. The most parts are from Coderspiel [2];

Sky Go on Ubuntu 13.10

This is about how to watch Sky Go (Pay-TV) on my Ubuntu 13.10 notebook.

With the Pipelight Browser-Plugin you can use Silverlight within you Linux Browser. The stream is protected by DRM, that’s why you cannot use Moonlight.

Here are the installation instructions using the Terminal [1][2]

//Close your Browser.

//Add the repository and update it
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pipelight/stable
sudo apt-get update

//Install pipelight
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends pipelight-multi
sudo pipelight-plugin --update

//Enable Silverlight 5.0, because 5.1 didn't work in my case
sudo pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight5.0
