upgraded to linux kernel 4.8

I upgraded my Linux Mint 18.1 to the 4.8 kernel and was left without network and sound. To fix that all I needed to do was to install the linux-image-extra, which I don't remember ever needing to install explicitly:


sudo apt-get install linux-image-extra-4.8.0-52-generic


Saving here because it took me a couple of hours until I got to this solution.

update on Gedit plugin to format JSON

what changed: $j->canonical([1]) - this will sort the keys in the json objects

#!/usr/bin/env perl 

use strict;
use JSON::XS;
local $/ = undef;
my $content = ;

my $j = JSON::XS->new->utf8->pretty(1);
$j->canonical([1]);
my $output = $j->encode($j->decode($content));

print $output;
