Raspbian and media keys

Just got a Raspberry Pi3 and a bluetooth keyboard and annoyed that the media keys for doing things like change the column don't work ?
Just add these to ~/.config/openbox/lxde-pi-rc.xml after all the other <keybind> before the </keyboard>

TP-Link TL-WPA4230P on Linux

Quick note on these PowerLine devices.

They don't need any tools to manage them, as they have a sufficient web interface.

BUT - these devices are terrible network citizens.

Epson XP-312 ink status script

The following script outputs the percentage of each ink tank from an Epson XP-312 313 or 315 series WiFi enabled printer.

The output looks like

K:96 C:80 M:12 Y:34

which is perfect for feeding into Cacti or other monitoring systems. Guess I'd best go get some magenta ink !

Linux (Kubuntu) on Dell Latitude E5430

tl;dr important stuff all works. Minor stuff like finger print scanner easily fixable

The hardware is 'certified' by Canonical but this is meaningless because it doesn't say what of the many options Dell offer for the E5430 was used. It also doesn't list correct details for hardware such as Bluetooth, or even that the finger print scanner exists. And there is no way to submit fixes. And the contact us page is 404 compliant. So let's hope Google finds this for you instead :-)
