1. Episode 29.5 of the Urandom Podcast is up.  Recorded from the eighth floor of the impressive Hyatt Regency in the Columbus Convention Center, this exclusive Ohio Linux Fest episode includes +Thaj Sara and +Lyle McKarns from Urandom, +Kevin O’Brien from Hacker Public Radio, +Tony Bemus from the Sunday Morning Linux Review, and yours truly.  Enjoy.
2. With Google Plus going away (OK, we have at least a year), I took the liberty of creating a MeWe page for the podcast https://mewe.com/group/5bc77fc4a5f4e501fd9a2bbd .  I’m going to look at setting up a Discord, a Mattermost, maybe even a Diaspora on my cloud space.  These will all be test instances for now, I don’t want to split the fanbase (meaning, I don’t want to look five places for messages before each show :), but we can spend a few months kicking the tires on these things.

FiftyOneFifty:  Update on the Mi MiniPC.  Apparently the design change made during the funding campaign to go with a faster Intel proc necessitated a slightly larger case and active cooling.  This also includes a larger 6″ touch screen and a delay on shipments to at least November, if the developers are to be believed at all.  As a crowd funder, the changes are not a deal breaker to me, but it means I won’t be bringing it to OLF.  https://liliputing.com/2018/09/mi-mini-pc-delayed-redesigned-crowdfunding.html

Kwisher:
Looking for a battery pack/UPS for Raspberry Pi. Unit needs to supply continuous power when main power is lost. Any suggestions?

TIA

    • Forgot to mention that these units need to be small enough to be fastened behind large LCD displays as the Pi’s are serving digital signage.

Consensus is RavPower since they can output while plugged in.  https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OQ19QYA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1  I’ve also used this addon board https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01JLEO9UC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 but the battery doesn’t have nearly the capacity.

Hi Honkey,

I’m *way* behind with my podcast listening and have just got to episode
106 of LinuxLUGcast. You were asking about xdotool. There have been
several HPR shows about it, so I thought you might find the references
useful.

Lots to discuss:
Could the new Code of Conduct for Linux Kernel development trigger a “kill switch” of developers withdrawing their code?  Eric S. Ramond says “The threat has teeth” https://lulz.com/linux-devs-threaten-killswitch-coc-controversy-1252/
Might mainboard manufacturer SuperMicro have been pressured by the Chinese governent into adding “Spyware” chips to their boards? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQIWk1XnVcU&feature=em-uploademail
Will Google be facing the same anti-trust penalties relevent to Android in the U.S. as they did in the EU after all?

A couple friends and I have been talking about a soft-reboot of Oggcast Planet Live.  By soft-reboot, rather than creating a separate event, we would create a concensus on an existing con and try to get as many Linux podcasts in one place at one time as possible.  If that works out, we’ll see going forward if there is interest in an event for just us.  I’d like feedback on my personal e-mail if there is any interest.

I mentioned last show I had everything for the Ghost Busters siren but the AdaFruit soundboard.  Turns out, I never actually ordered it!  Mistake corrected, at least I may have components by next Friday.  Filament arrived, hopefully I will print something before next week.

Thomas NaserI had a similar problem with my Dell Inspiron 13.
I was able to solve the problem by installing Gnome Tweaks, wherein I was able to det up the mouse button,  and restarted the computer – logging off didn’t work for me.

Mark Rice on G+I thought it was +honkey Magoo who mentioned remapping keys.  What I did to make the config permanent between boots, was to put this line in my .xinitrc
setxkbmap -option caps:backspace
I know you were mapping the mouse click, but hopefully this will help a bit.

youtube-dl and ffmpeg fun(download a play list)
youtube-dl playlist_url

(you could possibly do this the easy way by using “youtube-dl -F playlist_url” finding which # is the just audio stream and then doing something like “youtube-dl -f 140 playlist_url”, but I screwed up which f F to use so now I am learning about some good command line tools)

(so now you have a ton of .mp4 files. If you wanted just the audio for these files you can use ffmpeg to extract the audio from these .mp4 and convert them to .ogg)

To convert one file:
ffmpeg -i videofile.mp4 -vn -acodec libvorbis audiofile.ogg

To convert many files:
for vid in *.mp4; do ffmpeg -i “$vid” -vn -acodec libvorbis “${vid%.mp4}.ogg”; done

update to using the super key as the left mouse button
found that doing
xkbset m
xmodmap -e “keycode 133 = Pointer_Button1”
worked but it would time out

but adding
xkbset exp =m
so now the script is

xkbset m
xkbset exp =m
xmodmap -e “keycode 133 = Pointer_Button1”

but I still can’t get it to start at boot

Greetings,I was reviewing some of my website statistics today and noticed that you linked over to my Getting Started with Crostini Guide. I listened to your podcast recording and noticed there were a few unanswered questions that were left. Hopefully these answers help.

Q) What container technology is Crostini Using?A) Crostini is not using Docker rather it is based on LXC

Q) Where does the container run?A) Devices that support Crostini use a lightweight virtual machine which runs LXC inside of the VM. By defaut, the VM is known as “Termina” however it is very possible to create as many Virtual Machines as possible via the crosh shell.
Hope that helps, I am open to any other questions your audience may have, Keith I Myers <keithiokepamyers@gmail.com> Jun 9 (6 days ago)

To sales.pine64.org, I addressed to following question which many of us might be interested in an answer:

TL Lim

9:23 PM (1 hour ago)

to me, Sales

Hi FiftyOne Fifty,

I am TL Lim, PINE64 founder.
1. Modularity: We were really expecting a laptop with a conventional Pine64 inside, rather like a PiTop (which, by the way, the PineBook kicks all kind of butt in relationship to). OK, no way you could have made it as thin and light. But we were kind of hoping when there was a new SBC, slide the old one out and slide the new one in. I do know the PineBook is electronically compatible with a Pine64, since I am running a Pine64 Ubuntu Mate image on the EMMC. I don’t know how hard it would be to change out the two boards inside. Maybe there could be an upgrade kit to the next generation platform with a “dock” to turn the original boards into a Pine64?

[Ans] Actually we have explore using PINE A64 SOM call SOPine on Pinebook. However, due to physical concern, end up need to design a dedicated board. We have plan on the release an upgraded mainboard in near future that user can change themselves.

2. Trackpad: I know you were trying real hard to keep the price point under $100. I appreciate that, but every PineBook owner I know would have been willing to spend a little more on a better trackpad. Two finger scroll is truly dismal. I’m looking to get one of those ring mounted track ball doohickeys if they still make them.

[ans] We will keep source for a better trackpad and still need to keep budget in control.

3. Speakers: In my podcast reviews, I’ve probably been harshest on this point, going so far to say the speakers “are not fit for purpose”. OK, I understand the original Pine64 was meant to be connected to HDMI or external powered speakers and thus had no prevision for an internal amp. I assume adding an amp would tax the external power supply. That being said, throwing all the software tricks I can, such as installing Pulse Audio Volume Control and maxing every available slider clear to the right, in a very quiet room I can only just make out audio and only with considerable effort. I also realize this may be insurmountable with SBC power input levels. I use my PineBook as a workstation when away from home, if I want to consume media, I carry a ChromeCast and plug it into the hotel TV. A podcaster friend of mine tends to carry a laptop around the house and find a private place to consume media where he won’t disturb the family. He was hoping to replace his power hungry MacBook with the PineBook, but the weak speakers make that impossible. Perhaps we should both invest in battery powered Bluetooth speakers?

[ans] There is a power amp in side Pinebook, please refer to page 8 on schematic that we posted on wiki page. We have source a louder sound speaker for next batch Pinebook. Whether to use external bluetooth speaker, this is up to individual choice.

4. Battery life: You probably don’t get this criticism often, my friends who take PineBooks to work say they have battery for days. My problem is, I really wanted to use the PineBook on IT assignments. Since that is not my primary business, I’m called intermittently. We have found, unlike most laptops, if you don’t leave the PineBook plugged in, the charge dissipates less than a week, even without use. So, if I want the Pinebook to be ready to go, I have to leave it plugged in rather than in my go bag.

[ans] When totally shutdown, Pinebook still can maintain 90% power even idle for a month.

5. Hollow interior freaks out the TSA: Actually, I find this one rather entertaining, but maybe your firm could do more to educate our stalwart defenders of airline safety. I actually might have single handedly educated the TSA at Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport, because, unlike previous trips, I had no question getting on my flights from Wichita, likewise coming back from Detroit (Penguicon). Every time I flew with the PineBook before, I got the explosives wipedown and strange looks from the TSA. On the trip back this spring from Seattle (LFNW), I got a TSA employee who put her hands on her hips and said “Sir, why is you laptop hollow”. I quietly replied, “It’s based on Single Board Computing technology, and it has all it needs”. It helped that I’d been using it in the last 24 hours (see point 4) and had enough charge to boot up.

[ans] Thanks on sharing the story :–) I have travel with Pinebook in State, Asia and Europe, but not been question by airport security.

Thanks on your suggested and a Pinebook user. Please try out the new KDE Plasma OS build, you may like it.

Cheers,
TL Lim, PINE64 Founder

These others were posted by 5150 to Public, they seem appropriate for show discussion:

OK, here’s a screenshot from FreeOffice 2018 TextMaker. Look familiar?  So must wasted whitespace (OK, a “feature” of any modern GUI word processor). Send me back to WordPerfect 6.0. Okay, I see this if you are dragging a closed source culture kicking and screaming to the right of things. Is Zorin still out there? “No, trust me, it’s Windows 11.” There is a Linux Presentations Client as well as FreeOffice Planmaker (spreadsheet). Unfortunately, there are Windows word processor and .PDF clients only.  I’m all for competing projects, and it should be noted you can also use a conventional File/Edit/View etc menu instead.


Also, if you are into keeping things well organized, extract the setup and image files for FreeOffice into a folder of your creation (as opposed to the .deb and .rpm files). Expect the generic installer to take several minutes.

Wasn’t the whole idea of the ribbon to be copy proof? Well, I’m not part of the FreeOffice legal team.

Things that are 1/3 off on IndieGoGo right now. First is the Atari VCS goo.gl/eoSast Granted you only get 1/3 off if you pre-registered like I did and if so you already have a link in your mail. It ships with 100+ Atari nostalgia games, but also works as a Linux PC and can play Linux games. I expect it to be very much like a low end Linux Steambox, with more Linux desktop options. At $200 (for pre-registers) and $300 for everyone else, I wouldn’t expect it to run top end games.

Next up, we have the World’s smallest mini-PC +DoorToDoorGeek and company, take note. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-world-s-most-powerful-pocket-sized-pc/x/2452202#/ Perhaps smallest running an Intel processor. Found it when getting the IndieGoGo link from above. Refreshed the page, and the early bird price seems to have suddenly dropped from $189 to $159. Reviews point out that this seems to just be HIGOLE GOL1 which you can find on Ali Express from $149 and up with a processor and memory upgrade. Comes with Windows 10 🙁 and Android (5.x on the GOLE1, though you can pay $15 to get the IndieGoGo one, “Mi Mini-PC” upgraded to 7.1). Even though GearBest says it would not be easy to install Linux https://www.gearbest.com/tv-box-mini-pc/pp_372951.html, I might grab it at the early bird and cross my fingers. Mi comes with foldable Bluetooth keyboard and a travel case/stand that would make it to big for my pocket.

5150 also later updated the topic to say Project Founder Leo Cheung responded to an inquiry by e-mail.  Cheung ensures us the Mi does indeed support multi-boot with Linux.
