Num Lock ‘on’ automatically on startup


In all distributions based on Debian there is num lock turned off by default. If you are one of these users who wants full control over your OS, there are few tricks to change that situation.

No wireless network. Installation of non-free broadcom driver.


Debian consists entirely of free software. This is a reason why Broadcom LAN chips are supported by the open source drivers by default. The common issue with these drivers (brcmsmac, b43…) is that there is no WiFi devices available in network manager. To change that, the quickest possible way, we need to install non-free vendor driver on our Debian system.
