100 Days Of LotD | Day 6: Teamin‘ up and a case of forgetfulness

You can find the „100 Days of LotD“ mission statement [ here ].


I really didn’t use the computer much today – just fired it up to write this blog post, reply to a forum thread and see what’s up on Twitter. And – install the Teams app!

I’m not the biggest fan of Teams but, being an MVP and all, it’s sort of unavoidable, even for personal use. What shall I say? The .deb package installed without much ado, and the resulting application looks exactly like it does on my Windows machine. Audio and video devices got configured automatically (and correctly), test call worked so I am ready for the coming week’s Teams calls on my Linux box.

There are two items, however, that weren’t as exciting. First, the order of the wireless networks does not stick, no matter what autoconnect priorities I assign to them. This is pretty annoying since the Internet seems to suggest that everything has been done the way it should be. I’ll let this rest for now and will revisit it later, maybe over the holidays where I’ll be moving around the house more.

The other thing that the machine seemed to have forgotten, much to my chagrin, was for the tap on the touchpad to be treated as a left click. A quick peek under the hood revealed that the ID of the Synaptics touchpad has changed from initially 12 to now 13:

Not sure if it’s not going to revert back to 12 one day, I changed it in the startup task and hope that this does it for the next 94 days.

That’s all for today. Stay safe and join me tomorrow!
