Hi Linux LUG Cast,

I’m Nick Vidal from the Open Source Initiative (OSI).

The “open source” label was created at a strategy session held on
February 3rd, 1998 in Palo Alto, California. That same month, the Open
Source Initiative was founded as a general educational and advocacy
organization to raise awareness and adoption for the superiority of an
open development process.

In 2018, we’ll be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Open Source.
This is a huge milestone for everyone involved with technology.
Nowadays open source is ubiquitous, recognized across industries as a
fundamental component to infrastructure, as well as a critical factor
for driving innovation.

We are organizing several activities along the year to commemorate
this special occasion, including the launch of Opensource.net and
worldwide celebrations in conjunction with major tech conferences
(FOSDEM, OSCON, Open Source Summit, FOSSAsia, Campus Party,
Linux.conf.au, etc).

I’m reaching out to you to let you know that I’m at your full disposal
to help you cover the Anniversary. Please let me know if you are
interested in a few quotes from the OSI Board of Directors or from
industry leaders.

Thanks,
Nick

I wanted to play “Guns of Icarus” so I installed Steam on Solus OS even though the Snaps version isn’t ready yet.  It’s supposed to integrate seamlessly when it is.  I’ve only tried the one game.  Everything seems a lot smoother than when I tried last year.
>sudo eopkg install steam

From the EULA I agreed to online, the PicoBrew C home brewing system I ordered for $399 on Black Friday utilizes a mix of Open Source and proprietary software (I’m guessing the base OS is Linux).  I will be here the middle of next week, may not be enough time for me to run a batch before next show.

I didn’t get MakuluLinux installed on either bare metal or a VM.  On second look, I did have a go with this years ago and it doesn’t look like it’s had an update in two years and the cert on the homepage seems to have expired since last show.  Finally, the nVidia GT730 I ordered only came today.

Failed to get quasselconf.py working on the Arch server, probably because it has QT dependencies and the server isn’t running X.  Had the bright idea of copying the config files from /var/lib/quassel to a shared folder and installing quasselconf on the Solus desktop:

>sudo eopkg install python3-devel
>sudo pip3 install quasselconf
>sudo pip3 install pyqt5
>quasselconf -c path-to-copied-config-files -t core
Which returns – a blank line

Firefox Quantum 57 is now default on Solus

Installing AnBox (an application to run Android apps on Linux).  Anbox – Android in a Box   AnBox is a Snap, which are already supported as of Solus 3 Install snapd on Solus – Snaps are universal Linux packages .  > sudo snap install –classic anbox-installer && anbox-installer

To run Android apps, you also need to install the developer kit: How to install Android Studio and Android Tools on Solus | FOSS Linux .  Apps have to be sideloaded, so I had to extract them from an Android device (in my case, the chromebook). How to Extract APK File of Any App on Your Android Phone I extracted the Android .apk, but it failed on install
>adb install myapp.apk
adb: error: failed to get feature set: no devices/emulators found
