Ha ha!  Good one Thmbsup

Thanks -- I think that's almost the same as what I found at github:

The file sizes are quite close.

Am I the only reader here who is utterly confused by this entire thread?

Unlikely.

FWIW, although it required noticeable effort to read for me (he he, getting old), I found the content understandable and interesting.

Thanks for sharing this Thmbsup



FWIW, while looking for the article on a different machine, came across:

Not unusual to use the following at least once a day:

Android
arandr
bash
df
dwb
emerge
fluxbox
grep
less
linux (the kernel smiley )
mupdf
nix-env / nixpkgs
pacman / pacaur
sakura
slim
sudo
vim
VirtualBox
wget
X.org

Oops...have I leaked out of bounds, both numerically and OS-wise? Wink

Thanks for sharing.

I failed to locate much more regarding this so I'm left wondering about specifics.  Did you have any luck?

Update: The following looked more detailed:

Don't have experience myself, but found the following:

There's a bit in it comparing wireless charging to using the ordinary means.

Another option, if the USB port on your device supports OTG (USB On The Go), is an OTG flash drive like this one.  It has a micro USB male plug in addition to the regular USB A plug and supports USB 3.0 on the PC side.  You can also buy OTG cables for less than $10 that allow you to plug any USB flash drive into the Android device.

I use this approach sometimes -- on some devices root isn't needed to get this to work.



Am also a FileExpert user smiley

What sort of non-ASCII stuff would you want it to handle?

At least CJK-ish things.

40hz and other interested parties,

I was going to start another thread on the following (and may be I still will Wink), but if you'd like another fun rabbit hole that happens to use KDE, perhaps NixOS would be interesting to check out.  It appears to support XFCE (as well as other things), but KDE appears to be more the default.



I've been using its package manager, Nix, on top of Gentoo mostly with happy results, but am also testing NixOS via VirtualBox.

117  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: NIX: KDE anyone? First thoughts. on: June 13, 2014, 12:54:48 AM
BTW, aren't there also the Window Manager -> Keyboard and Window Manager Tweaks -> Accessibility -> Key used to grab and move windows sections?  Perhaps there are other nooks that contain keyboard-related things...IIRC, it's no better in most other non-XFCE things.



I wonder why more desktop environments/managers/etc. don't go for using the Windows key to stay out of application key usage territory...seems like such a nice solution.

Had some success building Vault 3.

May be there's an easier way, but here it consisted of:

1. Download the source and extract it
2. In Eclipse, File -> Import -> General -> Existing Projects into Workspace -- removed check from paid version and chose to copy projects into workspace (note the error)
3. Visit the Vault 3 tree's Properties -> Java Build Path -> Libraries tab and note down all of the missing jar files
4. Open a terminal and navigate to the CommonCode directory in the workspace, then build CommonCode.jar by issuing the 'ant' command.  The result should be CommonCode.jar in the deploy subdirectory.
5. Use an appropriate search engine (and check your local file system) to obtain/locate local copies of the other missing jars
6. Update the Libraries tab from an earlier step regarding the now-should-not-be-missing jar locations (for CommonCode.jar select the location corresponding to the result of the previous step)
7. Have an appropriate (real or virtual) device ready, and choose Run from the Run menu (and if necessary specify Android Application or some such).



Below are details regarding the jars:

I hope you were joking -- is that not quite a lot of point of clicking you have to do (to be comprehensive)?  FWIW, I have looked there before smiley

If I were to go over to another WM it would either be Xfce or Openbox.

The main drawback to me about many of the existing options is the key sequence collisions and what trouble is involved in minimizing such things.  I've been using fluxbox as it was relatively easy to become collision-free by changing ~/.fluxbox/keys to use the Mod4 modifier (Windows key here).  The result is that window management here makes use of the Windows key, and other things don't (at least for the most part).




I like XFCE but I haven't figured out an easy way (yet?) to achieve a similar small-number-of-collisions end.  I tried Openbox for a while but had difficulty in working with the switching among and control individual windows functionality that typically is available via taskbar-ish UIs (this was after trying a variety of 3rd party "panels").
121  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: (Wired) File Transfers from PC on: June 12, 2014, 09:23:11 PM
Try this:
Settings>Developer Options> Check "Allow Mock Locations" and "USB debugging"

Did Mass Storage appear?

Unfortunately not -- tried on both tablets and the phone.
122  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: (Wired) File Transfers from PC on: June 12, 2014, 05:11:01 PM
There is a well hidden setting in most phones/tablets that let's you switch from MTP to Mass Storage:
Settings>Storage>Menu Button (the one with the three dots top right corner)>USB Computer Connection

Sounds interesting!

I've navigated accordingly and can see a list that has some entries.  One of them is MTP and the other is PTP -- it looks like I can choose between one or the other...but on the surface of it, it doesn't look like either is Mass Storage.  I've tried this with two tablets with the same results and on one phone the menu button doesn't bring up a menu, unfortunately...

I've been using OI Safe, along with OI Notepad, on my Nexus 7 tablet for months now, and I'm very happy with it.  One thing I like is that I can have both encrypted and unencrypted files on OI Notepad, so in addition to the encrypted files, I can use OI Notepad as an everyday text editor.  

May be I'll take another look at these -- last time I checked, I think I encountered difficulties using OI Notepad with (some?) non-ASCII data. 



Also wondering whether the OpenIntent stuff is still being maintained...

Vault 3

Looks quite interesting!  Thanks for the suggestion  Thmbsup

I presume a relevant page for it is:

I'm not having much luck downloading the source code for it -- anyone else succeeding?  Seems to be working now smiley

The only solutions I've found was to make my desktop computer an FTP server.

I've done the reverse too, make the phone behave as an FTP server -- FileExpert and other Android apps provide this functionality.  Not too happy about unnecessary wireless connections or having to look after more servers though so I try to avoid this most of the time.
