Nur „echte“ Benutzerkonten anzeigen

Um am Login Bildschirm von Fedora nur jene Konten anzuzeigen, die sich in letzter Zeit eingeloggt haben, muss man nur eine kleine Änderung an der /etc/gdm/custom.conf Datei vornehmen:

Damit werden nicht oder zB nur per scp genutzte Benutzernamen ausgeblendet.

Synchronisation: „works for me“

Motivation

This article has multiple motivations. First, it is a follow-up to an article by Patrick Ohly (author of syncEvolution). As such it illustrates my own experience with his software, but also is meant as a way to show my gratitude and give kudos to him and all contributors of syncEvolution. Second, but this is somehow related to the aforementioned article, it should show that synchronisation [of PIM data] can work reliably and as such it opposes a wide spread opinion.

Scope

What I’ll try to show is how I’m successfully synchronising my notebook, my workstation (both Fedora 15) and my Android phone using the SyncML protocol.

Disclaimer: on the phone, I’m currently using a non-free piece of software from Synthesis AG for the only reason that the free Funambol client doesn’t play well with my self-signed SSL certificate (yet!?).
