Hi Matthias, thanks for that tip. :-)

I just tried it out on Ubuntu 18.04 (with Gnome, on another computer) and haven't got it working there either, although I will keep trying and will post a bug report if it doesn't work out.
Anyway, I guess that's OT for this list. :-)

Lee, that's another cool tip. :-) After the IBM 92, I was soon typing on an IBM PC (8088) and that was indeed a good keyboard - and totally unbreakable. Those guys really built the hardware to last! :-)

Anyway, like I originally said, what a cool idea about the typewriter sounds. :-)

All the best,

Lovely idea, Philipp,
I've just tried installing the snap on my Ubuntu Studio 18.10 and have
not yet got it working.

Type "bucklespring.buckle" on the commandline and it should work... ;-)

However, I am not sure if snaps work on Ubuntu Studio.



But the idea is really lovely. Personally, I learned to type on an IBM
92. :-D

I hope this is getting throught to your 'Suggestions Box':

I always thought, it would be nice to have an optional /*audio add-on*/
for the Open Office Writer which gives out the Clatter, Ping! Crrk!
Cachunk! (when lifting to the Shift function) etc. of a /*typewriter*/.

If someone is willing to create such an extension, why not. ;-)
But we do not have any Influence on that.

It would be yet a nicer writing experience.
Meanwhile (and if you are using Ubuntu) I recommend this:


OK, not a typewriter, but an IBM Model M keyboard [1]. However, it
sounds similar! ;-)
