iOS7 devices are not able to communicate with linux showing an endless “Trust this computer?” message
To be able to connect your device to Ubuntu 13.10 or Mint 16 64 bit you just need to download this libimobiledevice 1.1.6 package.
Then install it by going in the folder and clicking on it and use your package manager or through this terminal command:
sudo dpkg -i libimobiledevice4_1.1.6-git20140105_amd64.deb
For Ubuntu 12.04 LTS be it 32 bit or 64 bit you can install it through this PPA with the following commands:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ingo/ios7support
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
To install RVM on SolydK:
Install mandatory packages:
sudo apt-get install build-essential git-core curl
Download the installation script:
bash -s stable < <(curl -s https:
Append the script to your .bashrc:
echo '[[ -s "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] && source "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm"' >> ~/.bashrc
Reload shell configuration:
Test if installation is OK:
type rvm | head -n 1
The return of this should be: rvm is a function
List all versions available:
rvm list known
Install your ruby version:
rvm install 2.0.0
Setup the version you will use by default:
rvm use 2.0.0 --default
SolydK is the bridge between Linut Mint KDE & Linux Mint Debian Edition. The whole story here
I also really like Linux Mint KDE & Debian, and I am really happy to run this distro on my computer now.
KDE 4.1x is running really fast and the disconnection from Ubuntu is a real benefit. The distribution is based on a rolling release cycle which will avoid to reinstall or upgrade every 6 months.
Debian Testing is offering all the latest packages I need.
After several years of distro hopping I think I have found the one that fits to me.
Saturday is the last day to support the Kickstarter campaign for the new book Learn Ruby on Rails. Until Saturday, you can download the book for free. Please download it, take a look, and support the campaign.
Raspberry pi announced they sold 2 million units… and I understand why!
I was looking at this small piece fr several weeks just to play with it. Finally I bought one and I used it to support my logitechmediaserver using the squeezeplug image.
It works perfectly, it is just what I was looking for to remove my old big computer serving only web content and my music library.
I will probably buy another one to keeping on playing with old the distro and accessories available for Raspberry pi.
With all the communication mistakes made by ubuntu recently I have discover a website which provides an easy way of deactivating the invasive tools from Ubuntu: https://fixubuntu.com/
The Author, Micah Flee, is sharing a piece of code to deactivate Remote Search, unity-lens-shopping, Remote Scopes and Block connections to Ubuntu's ad server.
V=`/usr/bin/lsb_release -rs`; if [ $V \< 12.10 ]; then echo "Good news! Your version of Ubuntu doesn't invade your privacy."; else gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Lenses remote-content-search none; if [ $V \< 13.10 ]; then sudo apt-get remove -y unity-lens-shopping; else gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Lenses disabled-scopes "['more_suggestions-amazon.scope', 'more_suggestions-u1ms.scope', 'more_suggestions-populartracks.scope', 'music-musicstore.scope', 'more_suggestions-ebay.scope', 'more_suggestions-ubuntushop.scope', 'more_suggestions-skimlinks.scope']"; fi; if ! grep -q productsearch.ubuntu.com /etc/hosts; then echo -e "\n127.0.0.1 productsearch.ubuntu.com" | sudo tee -a /etc/hosts >/dev/null; fi; echo "All done. Enjoy your privacy."; fi
Just copy and paste this code into a terminal, type your admin password when prompted and you are done.
After all these Prism related buzz and all the discussion about privacy, I started to re-think my Linux habits.
Using Ubuntu derivatives for a long time (Linux Mint, Kubuntu) I looked at this page related to all alternatives to proprietary software.
There is an interesting comment on Ubuntu:
Canonical’s Ubuntu is not recommended by PRISM Break because it contains Amazon ads and data leaks by default. GNU/Linux distributions based on Ubuntu are also currently not recommended due to several other reasons.
It is true that I have been annoying with all this online searches activated by default. Additionnaly the information are sent to servers hosted in the US & UK. Honnestly this is somethig I would like to avoid.
I am not saying that Canonical is deliberately giving access to any government agency, but the current situation is providing a good context if these agencies would like to access some information collected by Canonical.
With my preferences in terms of Linux distribution and desktop, I wanted to use LMDE, but out of the box KDE is not proposed and after installation does not provide a lot more than Debian KDE.
Fedora 20 is the next release of the fedoraproject. My journey with Ubuntu will probably come to an end soon. I want to use gnome and in its latest version and Ubuntu seems to decide that Gnome 3.10 will not be implemented in the next releases as their current focus is on Ubuntu touch, xmir, unity, etc… And they run out of resources.
So I want to use gnome, and now I need to find the best distro proposing this desktop environment.
First try with Fedora. I left fedora mainly because I was not satisfied with the packaging system rpm, rpmi was a disaster with lot of inconsistency and problems, after several years of Ubuntu, I think that now Fedora is having a stable system to manage the packages.
My requirements are not so complex, I want:
- to easily use RVM to develop Ruby & Ruby on Rails applications
- to use virtualbox to test other distributions
- to use mariadb as database engine
- to use BOINC for several collaborating projects
- to use Gnome 3.10
Let's have a try for some days, and I will see if it is OK to switch.
I am starting to be really fed up with Ubuntu. In a message a this distribution list, Sebastien Bacher, software engineer at Canonical, proposes that Ubuntu stays on GTK/GNOME 3.8 for the next cycle (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS).
Ubuntu want unity as desktop, phone, TV, everything default environment, it is fine with me. That's why I am using any Ubuntu flavor except the main one (unity is not what I like). But if there is a Ubuntu GNOME environment it has to work with gnome… and saying than in 6 months it will not be stable enough it is really a joke. Using the argument that Red Hat stays on 3.8 is not valid, Ubuntu is not Red Hat, it is like Fedora, nothing more (especially when we see the poor quality of Unity).
The main issue is that the Ubuntu Desktop team is working on Unity and Gnome desktop environment as far as I understood the message and they will not have time to work on Gnome 3.10 bugs.
Should I use Fedora now, or convince myself that Unity is good?
Here is a Gtk3 theme based on Futura (Blue) by Nale12.
My first real theme for gnome-shell (3.8) and I have merge the Futura theme to have something consitant, now working on having it modified for Gnome 3.10.
