Sshuttle VPN Help

Wed, 2018-06-20 15:50

Despite the fact that I'm on a Mac and this is a Linux subreddit, I don't know where else to post this. I've been trying to get Sshuttle VPN to work for a while, and while I'm no coding expert, I do like trying out VPN's, even if it makes use of the UNIX systems' packet design (Github, etc.)

So before I ask my question can I just Sshuttle actually supposed to change your IP? If not, I can stop trying.

Flatpak in detail, part 2

I found a workaround to keep watching Blender videos on YouTube

Wed, 2018-06-20 11:30

I found a very easy workaround to continue watching Blender videos straight from YouTube.

For example, here is a blocked video link:

All you have to do is simply change /watch?v= in the link to /embed/ like this:

This allows you to keep watching the Blender videos as if they were never blocked in the first place!

Alternatively, you can use the free Ageless for YouTube addon on Firefox to do this automatically. There will be a blue circle next to the bookmark icon on the sidebar that you can click to bring you to the unblocked page.

Nethunter TWRP failing

Wed, 2018-06-20 09:04

I am rooted, and bootloader unlocked, I have busybox and the like, but when I try to select device name under 'install TWRP' it reports an unexpected error and the log is;

Build version: 9.8 Build date: 1979-11-30 00:00:00 Current date: 2018-06-20 17:02:20 Device: LGE Nexus 5

Stack trace:
java.lang.NullPointerException: Attempt to invoke virtual method 'org.json.JSONArray org.json.JSONObject.getJSONArray(java.lang.String)' on a null object reference at com.jmz.soft.twrpmanager.utils.RecoveryDialog$ Source)

If it matters, I have access to a terminal shell and my android os is at 6.0.1. If you need more information about my current system, feel free to ask, but in any other case, thanks in advance!

Nvidia Optimus and DXVK+Vulkan Gaming.

Wed, 2018-06-20 04:49

Hello all.

I've been trying last few days to figure out how to play games like BF1 and other AAA titles on my optimus laptop using the DXVK project and WINE

Now I know that bumblebee does not support Vulkan hence my problem. This would be easy and I would be done in a matter of a few hours if I had a desktop (currently saving up).

So my question is if I do not care about powersaving and switchable graphics can I use the Nvidia drivers without bumblebee on my optimus system? Note that my BIOS does not support turning off the Intel GPU

I did try blacklisting nouveau rebuilt grub and installing the nvidia drivers from aur but I got a black screen.

Airplane mode problem

Wed, 2018-06-20 03:44

Play dota 2 on my laptop which has Ubuntu 18. 04 installed on it. As I completed my match I went to the lobby and above there was a title that said I am in offline mode. Then I closed the game and saw that near my battery symbol, there is a airplane symbol. I went to Network settings but there was nothing I can do.

After sometime I restarted my laptop and then the airplane symbol was gone but when I went to the Wi-Fi and bluetooth settings, the button to toggle Wi-Fi on wasn't there and the button to toggle bluetooth can't be changed and it was written and connect a Bluetooth dongle to use Bluetooth.

I used the USB tethering and it was working but I don't know why the wireless tethering is not working. Please help me.

YouTube Music

Tue, 2018-06-19 22:24

If you're looking to get Google's new suite of YouTube Premium, or just YouTube Music free or paid, I have got you covered. We're going to do a simple trick that most people use for Netflix: Chrome. Chrome is a great tool for people who want to use web pages as apps. Just download chrome, and go to the YouTube Music web page and go to more tools, create shortcut and optionally (and more practically) press the open as Windows button. Even if you're not a Google Chrome user, it doesn't open a chrome window, and works really well with the exception of downloading music, which is Windows/Mac exclusive for now.

Anyways, I hope that you found this at least interesting.

Question: What's your most useful one-liner?

Tue, 2018-06-19 20:16

I currently work for a hosting company who's primary distro is CentOS. In the office, we often share our favourite one-liners which save time when exploring what might be causing issues, summarising logs, automation etc.

For example, here is a quick one-liner I use to analyse Postfix maillogs.

cd /usr/local/ && curl -O && yum install perl-Date-Calc -y && tar -xzf pflogsumm-1.1.3.tar.gz && mv pflogsumm-1.1.3 pflogsumm && chmod u+x pflogsumm/ && perl /usr/local/pflogsumm/ /var/log/maillog* > /var/log/maillog_summary.txt && history -d $(history | tail -1 | awk '{print $1}') && less /var/log/maillog_summary.txt

What about yourself? What's your most useful one-liner?

Thanks in advance, I look forward to seeing yours!

Opinion Matlab vs GNU Octave for engineering?

Tue, 2018-06-19 18:47

Anybody use Matlab and GNU Octave? I would like to know any major challenge of using GNU Octave. My university heavily use Matlab, I don't really know why, maybe because it is the "standard". I have a feeling that it is the same case as MS Office vs Libreoffice thing.

Linux question/advice

Tue, 2018-06-19 17:11

I currently run 10 window vm's with a hosting provider costing me roughly 33 per VM. I am wondering, if I build a server for my office, and then run 10 linux VMs on it, what would be best linux build to use? The ONLY thing I run on these VM's are chrome, dropbox and a way to remote connect. The windows VM is really overkill. Hardrive space is very minimal as most is taken up by OS currently. Thank you for any suggestions.
