Neo in Gnome 3.8

After a fresh Arch Linux install with Gnome 3.8, I was not able to chose Neo as keyboard layout in the gnome settings. To set it manually, use the dconf-editor. Set the entry org.gnome.desktop.input-sources.sources to [(‘xkb’, ‘de+neo’)].

Multiboot USB Drive

I just created a usb drive containing different linux distributions. I wanted the drive to have the original iso files on it with no need to unpack.

Here is what I did:

sudo mkfs.vfat -n MultibootUSB /dev/sdd1
sudo mount /dev/sdd /mnt/
sudo grub-install --no-floppy --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sdd

All iso files have to put to ‘/mnt/iso’.
My config file ‘/mnt/boot/grub.cfg’ can be downloaded here.

Especially the configuration for Arch Linux was a bit tricky to create.
‘archisolabel’ has to be the label of the image file used.
‘img_dev’ is set to the uuid of the usb device used.

Quite interesting is also the remastering of certain files. I put the neo keymap into /arch/any/usr-share.fs.sfs.

See here: If anybody wants to have the iso file, just tell me.

Just as a reminder for myself. To connect my Thinkpad Tablet to my Arch Linux PC the following was really helpful:

On Arch Linux the package in AUR is currently called go-mtpfs-git
