Debian Install Debootstrap Error...?

I'm sure this is going to be spammed with people asking what's "debian" or "linux". Mostly because of some of the other answers I've seen to questions like this... Anyway, I was installing Debian Etch onto another comp of mine. Though when it got to installing the base system files ti gave me an error window saying, "Debootstrap Error: Release file signed by unknown key (key id 9AA38DCD55BE302B)" I tried google to see what came up but ended up with only 7 results that weren't what I was looking for...Is there a way to get around this key? Maybe going into the console and deleting the archive.gpg file? Thanks, RX

Debian in Galileo Gen 2 Board

Dear all, I am currently developing a project on the University. I have to run a Phyton code in a Galileo Gen 2 board. In order to do that I have been asked to install Debian in such a board. I have no clue on how to do it, and the tutorial that I have found in the website is not detailed enough. I can see all around the place people talking about  "SD card image for Debian for the Intel Gelileo boards" but I do not understand what do they mean with this image. If any of you have ever done this, could you please get in contact with me? I would REALLY REALLY appreciate it! Thank you very much in advance, Mercedes.

I need a tiny screen for a pc running Debian with LXDE.

I was thinking around the size of a pip boy screen because thats kinda the idea. 5"-7" would be the best size, and vga input or hdmi as I will likely be using the raspberry pi (http://www.raspberrypi.org/) when it comes out

Instructable program stability?

WHY does the screen jump up and down when trying to read an instructable??? Its almost impossible to read. It would appear to be linked to the "adds" that are loaded. "Adds" meaning links to other stuff. Debian 8.4 on brand new G750JM completely stripped of any Micro$ software.

The "View in 3D" button opens the wrong model

In my instructable Blind Music Player when I click on "View in 3D" next to the "buttons.stl" file I see some other model. Maybe it's called "buttons.stl" too but that's not my model. Tested with Google Chrome Version 61.0.3163.79 (Official Build) (64-bit) and Firefox 52.3.0 (64-bit). Debian Stretch 64 bit.

Internal connector in a Fujitsu Stylistic is gone

Hi guys, I kinda need your help here: I got this wonderful tablet from professionals who were disposing it for some reasons. They didn't give me a charger so first I just took the hard drive out and put it in my Panasonic CF-19. https://images.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=http%3A%2F%2Ftse1.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.Mbe6a5882752d4fd8f37d47d77ab1967ao0%26pid%3D15.1&f;=1 These days I wanted to start drawing with a wacom tablet, and as this tablet is a wacom penabled device, I put the hard drive back inside, removed the dust and fired it, windows 7 booted, buggy because of the new hardware and eventually with proper drivers, everything went perfectly fine, but I wanted to have Debian Linux on it so I put an USB drive with the files to install Debian but the USB thumb drive was not recognised. I started to search and finally took the tablet apart and after a little troubleshooting, I saw the problem, a connector on the motherboard is unsoldered, I don't know what it is and the numbers on it told me nothing so I'm here to know if someone knows what it is and where I can find a replacement (I can do hot air soldering and have tin solder paste), here are the implied parts : https://lut.im/JcXmpH4ok4/K8cJQZs26mA8HNv4.JPG (Usb and Jack board) https://lut.im/12n4Vwj3vf/KhACs4GMyEjto7ir.JPG (motherboard pads, a bid damaged) https://lut.im/YeMMbdvnmG/wH9etmovCICXv8kC.JPG (connector, pic 1) https://lut.im/mX9uNvCLtj/9lg0mAziA5HfIIHy.JPG (connector pic 2) also I belive that it will be hard if not impossible to find a replacement so if you have ideas to connect back the USB and audio Jacks to the tablet, I was thinking about soldering thin wires on the pads but they are very tiny. Also, if you know some good hacks/enhancements for these devices, I would be interested

Favorite Linux distros?

OK guys- time for your inner Linux zealot to come out!My PC now has two hard disks. One has working installations of XP x64 (with all my games) and Ubuntu 8.04 (with all my media stuff) which I want to leave alone. The other is a blank canvas now I've taken all my files off it, and given I have one disk with my primary OSs on it I'm thinking of chopping the empty one into a number of smaller partitions so I can have a multitude of OSs to choose from. I already know XP (32 bit) and Puppy Linux are going on to it, but I probably don't need another Ubuntu so the rest are up for grabs. Which other distros do people recommend?Criteria: they must:- be free (as in beer, not overly bothered about as in speech)- fit into a roughly 20GB partition (with an external /share for big files)- not mess with my GRUB. I'm primarily thinking of the non-Debian family major distros, but relative unknowns are welcome.Related question- I've got used to installing dual boot XP/Linux, you just install Linux second and GRUB plays nicely with XP, but does anyone have experience dual-booting the Windows 7 Beta? Does its fancy-pants new bootloader have issues that preclude easy dual-boot installs?

Printing to scale.

I often want to print a diagram to scale. Often times the diagram is also larger then the sheetof paper. ( A sample diagram is at:http://www.boomerangpassion.com/plans/img/b08.gifhttp://www.boomerangpassion.com/plans/img/b08.gif. If you want to see other similar diagrams you can look at:http://www.boomerangpassion.com/plans/index_en.phphttp://www.boomerangpassion.com/plans/index_en.phpThough not all the diagrams I want to print are boomerangs.I am using Debian Etch, Cups, Gimp to modify the images which I save as postscript then print via lpr.My printer is a Lexmark Optra E312L, which can handle both pcl6 and postscript.I print the diagram once, measure something and figure the scaling factor. I then use Gimp to scale.Sometimes I just save and print sometimes, sometimes I break it up into overlapping parts and print.In either case the result is the same. Either the diagram gets shrunk to 1/4 it's size ( even though I blew it up), or the daigram it off by a bit, no matter how I tweak. it seems not to be predictable either. Worse when I try to line up two overlapping printouts the size don't match, so I can't really join them.Can someone show how to use Gimp, cups and a postscript printer to print something to scale. From everything i read I should be able to do it, but I guess there is some piece of software in the process thatis saying "Guy is too stupid to print it up right, I have to rescale for him".

Sub-mm precision ultrasonic or inductive distance sensor for use with Raspberry Pi?

Hi there, I am trying to keep my hardware/ coding skills alive and spruce up my bicycle wheel truing stand. I need to figure out the required hardware + software for the following: I want to build a non-contact distance measurement sensor system and get the output "into" my computer for display in a graphical user interface. I know I could omit the latter step with going directly onto a mini-LCD screen, but trying to use this a learn-another-programming-language learning experience (I've coded Matlab galore, pondering Python for this project). General system components: Sensor - [something - RasPi or Arduino I guess] - laptop (running debian) - GUI displaying continuous sensor reading Sensor: I've web-searched the hell out of this, but not finding anything quite answering my questions. I want to continuously measure the distance from the sensor to a bicycle wheel rim braking surface. Material is aluminium, shiny, though not smooth. Biggest problem with the web-search is being swamped by proximity sensor results (on/off) rather than a distance proportional output signal and much lower resolution projects. I rule out IR or optical sensing, now stuck between ultrasonic and inductive sensing, though tending to the latter for a faster response/adjustment to change time. Sensor criteria (other than reasonable $$): - total sensing range: ca.5mm - sensing accuracy 10 to 100micron/ 0.01 to 0.1mm - don't ask if that's needed, a bit of overkill, I know, but a bit of OCD doesn't do any harm, eh? - fast-ish sampling rate (so that when I turn the wheel, the number on the screen updates nice and fast, guess >25Hz is sufficient). [Something - RasPi or Arduino]: I know that I could omit the laptop GUI part (mini-LCD, LED array, etc), but keen to learn/ practice a little Python with this project, so I guess I am tending to the RasPi, but I am open minded. All I want is the analogue sensor out to end up as a digital reading "inside" my computer to be passed to my GUI as a reading. Essentially a mini A2D converter. Not fussed whether the output is in actual distance units or in arbitrary units/ current units (I guess the sensors put out a proportional current signal?). GUI: Depending on the above, how do I best get the signal "into" a Python program? A moderate fast sample rate >25Hz should suffice. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!
