What do you want from a modern Linux on a decent machine??

-Roaming Network, with 4G, WiFi.
-Remote Desktop software to take care of the machine while away.
-Ability to sleep and wake-up... In the proper console.
-I know Bluetooth technologies are there - get your shit together!
-And with a Secure Shell too!
-Multimedia keys
-Obvious peripherals (android phones, iStuff)
-Nice interface, without rude consoles with lots of ugly warnings
-VirtualBox capable
-And lots of available software at hand, of course, with a nice and easy installer.

Snippets, short stuff, Howtos && the e16-trsp tweak draft. Hey, what about i3wm?

Needed /etc/udev/rules.d/ file to open most any usb to dmx converter on modern *nixes:

# This file out of the QLC/QLC+ Projects, hence is GPLV2 or 3.
# Name this z65-dmxusb.rules and put it in /etc/udev/rules.d/
# These rules should work on newer udev architecture as well as the older one.
# Basically they watch for all "usb" subsystem add/change events, that occur
# for devices with VID==0403 and PID==6001 (meaning FTDI-based devices), and
# set their device nodes' permissions so that ALL users can read and write to
# them. The devices nodes are found under /dev/bus/usb/xxx/yyy. 

# Generic FTDI Products
SUBSYSTEM=="usb*", ACTION=="add|change", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0403", ATTRS{idProduct}=="6001", MODE="0666"  

# DMX4ALL Products
SUBSYSTEM=="usb*", ACTION=="add|change", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0403", ATTRS{idProduct}=="c850", MODE="0666"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb*", ACTION=="add|change", ATTRS{idVendor}=="03eb", ATTRS{idProduct}=="2018", MODE="0666", ENV{ID_MM_DEVICE_IGNORE}="1"

# EUROLITE Product
SUBSYSTEM=="usb*", ACTION=="add|change", ATTRS{idVendor}=="04d8", ATTRS{idProduct}=="fa63", MODE="0666", ENV{ID_MM_DEVICE_IGNORE}="1"

 Plug device &
 # modprobe snd_seq_midi
 # lsmod | grep usb
 $ lsusb |grep MIDI
 $ amidi -l
 $ aconnect -i
 aseqdump -p ##  (where you should replace ## with the client number of your keyboard from aconnect -i)
 $ a2jmidid -e   (After starting jack)
