I just installed a USB speaker that lsusb identifies as a GEMBIRD Honk HK-5002 USB Speaker.
It’s plug-and-play, and it works — not a great sound quality for music, but this is not what I want to use it for — save that the sound is either too loud (crackling and distorted) or, as soon as I try to lower the volume, it is muted.
When you are doing research on org-mode for notes taking in the middle of a sleepless night, to accidentaly realize, reading someone else commenting on Linuxfr.org, you had forgotten everything about your true first encounter with Org-Mode, dating back… 2011.
Beside my failing memory, what strikes me the most reading this short note, is the reason I was as enthusiastic as I was hesitant to fully commit to Org-Mode back then is the exact same reason I am still hesitant and enthusiastic today, after my recent rediscovery of Org-Mode:

Switching keyboard from French to US was easy (one just need to change the layout in Settings->Keyboard) save for one tiny, tiny little issue — frankly, an absolutely insignificant detail: LightDM, Manjaro’s logon screen mind you, persisted in forcing me to use a French keyboard to login. The bastard.
Solution? Open /etc/X11/xorg.
I received it yesterday from banggood.com — ordered on Dec 19th, on sale at ~90€ — but I only unboxed and started playing with it this morning. And does this keyboard feels great to type on.
It uses USB-C (comes with both USB-C/USB-C and USB-C/USB-A cables). It uses Cherry MX brown switches (other options available).
Here is the first post of what could easily become a series around Emacs, as I’ve recently began using it.
