Linux encrypted volume

When upgrading the Linux kernel I encountered an issue where the new kernel was not correctly identifying and decrypting my volume. Fortunatley I was able to access the system using an older kernel.

It seems that a critical package had been removed, as redundant.

apt install cryptsetup-initramfs

Add CRYPTSETUP=Y to /etc/cryptsetup-initramfs/conf-hook

update-initramfs -u -k <problematic kernel>

Logitech K400 Plus

The default scroll direction setting for my Logitech K400 Plus track pad does not match the track pad on my device. The scroll direction setting can be changed through a registry key.

\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\HID\VID_046D&PID_C52B&MI_01&Col01\7&1604964&0&0000\Device Parameters
FlipFlopHScroll => 1
FlipFlopWheel => 1

The exact registry key may vary, I’m not able to check on multiple systems. There is only a single key with the FlipFlop values.

Unplugging and re-inserting the USB dongle was sufficient for the settings to take effect.
