Sport watches like the Garmin Swim or Forerunner-series are widely used. As a Linux-User, I was facing the „problem“ how to get the data on the PC from my Garmin swim (and to GarminConnect) … there are a lot of solutions around on the internet (some very old ones) – the following workflow works fine for me to get the data on the PC and upload it to GarminConnect.
Back to the Future: Using a DEC VT220 from 1983
I bought an actual serial terminal. It is many years older than I am, and can display 24 lines by 80 (or 132) colums of text.
My workflow is quite terminal centric: Work for Uni is done with
ssh, emails are read with
ncmpcpp provides the front end to my music. If it weren’t for the Internet, I’d ditch the display server without batting an eye.
Ever wanted to combine two WAN connections for faster* internet? I do, for torrenting. And I scripted it.
On the Web, you’ll easily find „tutorials“ that just give you some bash script you have to painstakingly modify for it to run. This is as simple as it gets! But see for yourself! (code at the end of this post)
As a QGIS-User on Fedora-Linux I was at first happy having QGIS 2.14.x (LTR) in the Fedora 24 repository. After installing it with DNF the problems started… QGIS had some missing dependencies:
- pyspatialite error
- PyQt4-webkit error
Just yesterday I wandet to use my mobile (Nexus 5 / Android 5.1 CM 12.1) for connecting to the internet on my notebook (Fedora 22 / KDE Plasma 5). Connecting it via USB and activating USB-Tethering did something in network manager – but did not connect 🙁
After installing the *.deb from Citrix (in my case 13.2 for x64) you won’t find the PlugIn in the Firefox-PlugIn overview and the receiver is not working – a simple solution that worked for me on 2 different devices.
So, once again the good old problem of installing Citrix receiver on a new installed Fedora 22 (KDE). This time I was surprised getting a really new Citrix receiver dated 30.6.2015 (today is the 1st of July). And surprise: No rpm-package 🙁
The last weeks using Citrix ICA (receiver version 13.1 Linux 63bit) showed depending on the used application an annoying black box around the mouse-cursor. This behavior can be stopped easily – 2 solutions worked for me…
Der neue Citrix ICA 13.1 (Oktober 2014) bietet zahlreiche Neuerungen und ein verbessertes Linux-Setup. Jedoch wird kein rpm-Paket für 64Bit RPM-Distris angeboten – das *.tar.gz-Setup-Paket bringt die Lösung mit etwas „Nachhilfe“. Warum Citrix jedoch ein 32Bit RPM anbietet und keine 64Bit bleibt für mich ein Rätsel…
