How to disable laptop’s touchpad in Linux?

March 30, 2009 § 1 Comment

I just want to share something that might come to your helps. If you are using Linux on your laptop and don’t want to use the touch pad, please follow this:

1. Open file /etc/X11/xorg.conf and find a block similar to:

Section “InputDevice”
Identifier  “Synaptics”
Driver      “synaptics”
Option        “Device” “/dev/input/mice”
Option        “Protocol” “auto-dev”
Option        “Emulate3Buttons” “yes”
EndSection

2. Add a line (an option actually) before the “EndSection”:

Option      “Touchpad Off” “1”

So the section now should look like:

Section “InputDevice”
Identifier  “Synaptics”
Driver      “synaptics”
Option        “Device” “/dev/input/mice”
Option        “Protocol” “auto-dev”
Option        “Emulate3Buttons” “yes”
Option        “Touchpad Off” “1”
EndSection

3. Save the file, logout and login.

Your touch pad should no longer be active. I tested this in my Fedora Core 8.

Thanks.

My Grand Father Died – The End of a Great Life

March 29, 2009 § Leave a comment

February 22nd was a very sad day in my life. My morning started with a very shocking news. I got a call from my home that suggested me to start  journey for home as soon as possible. My home town (where parents live) is a 6.5 hours drive from my present town. My father didn’t want to mention the reason directly but finally he had to – when I inisisted too much. However, I started my journey very early in the morning by my personal car and reached home after half an hour of my targetted time. My family members were prepared with everything for the “see off” of my grand father as per the Muslim rules. It was really tough to look at the dead face of my grand father. I don’t know how to express my feeling, but I only know it’s very tough.

However, my grand father was a very honest and kind person. He was 100+ old when he died. In his long life, he did many great activities for the people of the region we live in. He sacrificed his entire life for the people, for the family and for achieving all good things. It’s reality that we can’t get him back among us but only what we can do or try to do is  to achieve his in-complete works. May God bless my family to achieve all he wasnt able to complete.

I believe my grand father is resting in the best heaven. We will be loving him so much as always he did us in his whole life. His soul will always be in peace…peace and peace.

May Allah help me and my family to do my grand father’s  in-complete works!

Election in Bangladesh – Getting a secular democratic government

March 29, 2009 § 2 Comments

I’m back again after a long time. I always wanted to write but it didn’t happen. Today I want to share the most important and memorable incident of 2008 happened in our Bangladesh. It’s actually something we were expecting for long.

December 29 of 2008 was a very important day for the nation.  It’s the anchor point for something new for us – as the country was being ruled by a military backed governemt since 2007. I don’t want to elaborate the reason for military-backed governemt – but it has a backend history. The country was in a democracy-less condition in 2007 and 2008.

However, the 29th december election was a turning point for the nation – from a military-backed ruling to democracy. There were two major alliances fighting to win the election. One was the Awami League led grand alliance and another was the BNP led four party alliance. The Awami League led grand alliance pledged for the trial of the war criminals those who killed 3 millions of Bangladeshi in 1971 (of the then East Pakistan) and a digital Bangladesh. It’s important to mention that a big number of people of the BNP led fourt party alliance are war criminals – that’s why they never wanted to start the trial for the war criminals. People compared the pledges offered by both alliances and placed their right to the Awami League led grand alliance. They won in more than 3/4 of the seats in the parliament. People rejected the war criminals and corrupted leaders’ alliance. And thus Awami League – which is known as the secular political party in this country – and its alliance entered into power.

We believe Awami League can fulfill the pledges they offered to win the election. So far so good – they already started initial processing for war criminals’ trial.

We really need a digital Bangladesh.

Lets hope for better!
