126  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: Note-taking App with Encryption, Source Code, ... ? on: June 12, 2014, 10:58:27 PM
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").
129  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.
130  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...
131  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: Note-taking App with Encryption, Source Code, ... ? on: June 12, 2014, 04:54:10 PM
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:

  http://www.ericbt.com/Vault3ForAndroid



I'm not having much luck downloading the source code for it -- anyone else succeeding?  Seems to be working now smiley
133  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: (Wired) File Transfers from PC on: June 11, 2014, 09:51:39 PM
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.
134  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: (Wired) File Transfers from PC on: June 11, 2014, 06:06:50 AM
That works for some phones, but not all.  IIUC, many phones now implement MTP, and unfortunately, I haven't had good results with that.

Any favorite methods for transferring files from PCs?

For one-offs "adb push" seems good enough.  For some more complicated transfers am trying out QtADB (0.8.1) with some success [1].



[1] Was helped tremendously via following comment:

Quote
1) When launched, QtADB displayed application window then crashed. Cause of problem is missing network resource, which raise SIGABRT in classes/updateapp.cpp, line 57 (function UpdateApp::gotWWW). Probably because QtADB version updates currently is not available. Perhaps QtADB 2.0 should check for resouce availability too and shouldn’t crash only because update server is missing. To avoid this problem in 0.8.1, automatic updates must be switched off. Open QtADB.conf (Linux users must look in /home//.config/Bracia) and set checkForUpdatesOnStart to “false” as displayed below:
checkForUpdatesOnStart=false

Stream-of-consciousness log...

Booting the default option didn't seem to go anywhere here using VirtualBox, but choosing the vga option worked smiley

To log in...username / password: bbq / bbq

Choose 'r' for README and take a picture for later reference or for those with decent cognitive abilities, read and remember -- type 'q' to exit.

Log in again and choose 't' for "Start X session", and choose some window manager.

The Ctrl-Alt-Backspace key sequence seems handy to exit the current window manager -- choose another window manager if still curious.



Looks like they used xbindkeys to get many(?) of their window manager setups to use a common set of key sequences -- nice.

On a side note, if any one knows how to achieve alt-tab like behavior from the command line (so this can be set up via xbindkeys), I'd appreciate hearing how smiley

Looks nice smiley

Tried some instructions on getting it working in a terminal, but didn't succeed.  Would be nice if it becomes trivial to set up in a future version for vim!

SO.. it looks like the lesson is, IF YOUR DRIVES ARE ALWAYS RUNNING RELATIVELY COOL, trying to run them cooler won't improve reliability.

Nice obvservation!  So there's a data point that in favor of keeping drive temperatures between 14 and 38 C -- so if it's too hot for us, perhaps it's too hot for them?

FWIW, I've used VirtualBox a fair bit with Windows 7 64-bit quite stably for some time -- virtual machines being *NIX, Windows, etc.
145  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: It's official - Mint 17 "Quiana" released to distribution on: June 04, 2014, 05:50:27 PM
FWIW, I didn't use LVM.  Also, I think I may have used the following packages for guest additions via apt-get, synaptic, or equivalent:

  virtualbox-guest-x11
  virtualbox-guest-utils

May be 40hz can comment on whether that sounds appropriate.

May be you'll find the triggers functionality to your liking (check out the examples):

  http://engla.github.io/kupfer/help/plugin-triggers.html

FWIW, there's also a "Google Search" plugin.



Actually, it doesn't look like it's possible to do what I was thinking.  IIUC, kupfer is inspired by the QuickSilver application, and IIRC, there it was possible to create a trigger (global shortcut) that invoked a command which let you type some text which if followed by Enter would perform a web search.  I didn't figure out how to do the comparable thing in kupfer unfortunately -- triggers exist in kupfer and it is also possible to create commands...however, it doesn't look like it's possible to create commands that when invoked allow you to type the text of your query (though you can make commands that operate on "selected text").
148  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Debian Tails OS question on: June 04, 2014, 05:31:29 AM
I'll include more in-depth comments, some how-to links, and list a few more I found that were missed this time.  Maybe even *gasp* use a few of them to see what happens.  Might take a few days though.   Wink

I came across the following today:

  https://launchpad.net/ubuntu-builder
  https://github.com/clearkimura/Customizer

via:

  http://www.ubuntu-mini-remix.org/



FWIW, I tried UCW at 40hz's suggestion, and it seems to have worked with Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon.
149  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: *NIX: Relatively Minimal Host OS for VirtualBox Use on: June 04, 2014, 03:10:32 AM
In the process of transferring the customized media to SDHC -- hope to boot from it soon.



On a side note, tried the persistence feature of LM (Ubuntu actually I guess) to add VirtualBox, but may be it was because of the USB set up I have...it worked but was intolerably slow...For reference, below are the instructions I adapted:

  http://tuxtweaks.com/2014/03/create-linux-mint-persistent-live-usb/



Booted customized "CD" (> 1 GB, USB media) ok, and had some success with running VirtualBox.  ATM, speed seems better than when using LM + persistence.

BTW, as part of the customization, I chose to delete some "Windows" related stuff -- the resulting iso is about 150 MB smaller than the original iso Wink  May be if I work at removing other things I can fit the result on a CD...

How about some nice transfinite numbers? Wink

Hmm, this thread has a slight aroma of some kind of meat, no?
