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.

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
