Installing Microsoft Visual Studio Code on Fedora Linux
I never thought I’d ever say this, but I must admit that I have become quite a fan of Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code IDE, which is available for a wide range of platforms, including Linux.

Enabling scroll wheel emulation for the Logitech Trackman Marble on Fedora Linux 24

See this post for a much simpler way to configure this printer on Fedora (and other Linux distributions). I’ve always been a fan of Brother, as their devices usually come with decent support for the Linux OS […]
