Is there any open source or at least free software available for Linux that take a music file (.mp3 or whatever) as input and gives chords used in the song with their timings. I hope I have conveyed what I mean. I post here because I duckduckgoed and did not find anything.
For example, chordify.net used to have a free option to upload a youtube link to a song and then chordify.net would tell the chords used in the song and where they were used. Now it is not free.
I understand that it might be difficult for such programs to be very accurate. Some inaccuracy is manageable.
Thanks for reading.submitted by /u/_QiSan_
I recently installed 16.04, as a fresh install, and I had an issue. I use vim as my main development env, but I had a config issue. no matter what I did, be it in .vimrc or running the commands in vim itself, I couldn't map keys.
I did everything, installing vim from the repo, using vim over the vi install. This is an issue I have never had before, I solved it by uninstalling all vim (including .tiny) and reinstalling from the repo. As soon as I did that my rc worked as normal.
Anyone know what the initial issue could have been?submitted by /u/smalltownoutlaw

I’m endlessly fascinated by Linux, to the extent that I wrote a book about it, Learn Linux in a Month of Lunches. My very favorite thing about Linux is the desktop environment concept. Desktop environments are graphical interfaces for the entire operating system, but where most operating systems, like Windows, OS X, iOS, and Android, have one common interface, Linux users can easily install and user a variety of interfaces without changing their underlying system.

Fedora Flock - 2016 - Day 4 - Last Day
Day 3, last day, today only has 2 sessions that I was going to attend. I started out by going to an "Ansible best practices Working Session" by Michael Scherer. The goal was to cover Ansible basics, best practices, and how they apply those to the Fedora Infrastructure. One example he used was checking the checksums on files before you replace them and restart services with Ansible. In particular, ssh config files. You can imagine if you restart ssh on your clusters across datacenters and you break ssh... no more Ansible. Another best practice is to leverage the pkg module which can determine which package manager is being used by the host and adjust accordingly. The third best practice was to be careful on how you assign variables. Try to use local when possible.The Fedora Infrastructure team keeps thier ansible code here Michael spent quite a bit of time covering the organization of their playbooks, roles, groups, tasks, handlers. A couple of tools that might be helpful:

Choqok 1.6 KDE Micro-Blogging Client to Bring Better Twitter Support, More
Choqok maintainer and former Arch Linux developer Andrea Scarpino proudly announced the availability of the second Beta development release towards the major Choqok 1.6 series.
If you're using the KDE 4 desktop environment, then you've probably heard of or used Choqok, which is a pretty cool and handy micro-blogging client that currently offers support for the popular Twitter social networking service, as well as Pump.io (formerly Identi.ca) and OpenDesktop.org services.
Choqok 1.6 has been in development for the past couple of months, during which the development team managed to add quite some improvements that make the open-source micro-blogging client a great alternative to existing products, such as Corebird and Birdie, both of which are written for GTK+-based desktops.

Linux Botnets on a Rampage [Ed: Kaspersky marketing in essence]
Linux-operated botnet Distributed Denial of Service attacks surged in this year's second quarter, due to growing interest in targeting Chinese servers, according to a Kaspersky Lab report released this week. South Korea kept its top ranking for having the most command-and-control servers. Brazil, Italy and Israel ranked among the leaders behind South Korea for hosting C&C servers, according to Kaspersky Lab. DDoS attacks affected resources in 70 countries, with targets in China absorbing 77 percent of all attacks.
Machine-Learning Algorithm Combs the Darknet for Zero Day Exploits, and Finds Them
In April, cybersecurity experts found an exploit based on this vulnerability for sale on a darknet marketplace where the seller was asking around $15,000. In July, the first malware appeared that used this vulnerability. This piece of malware, the Dyre Banking Trojan, targeted users all over the world and was designed to steal credit-card numbers from infected computers.
The episode provided a key insight into the way malware evolves. In the space of just a few months, hackers had turned a vulnerability into an exploit, offered this for sale, and then saw it developed into malware that was released into the wild.
Frequent password changes are the enemy of security, FTC technologist says
Shortly after Carnegie Mellon University professor Lorrie Cranor became chief technologist at the Federal Trade Commission in January, she was surprised by an official agency tweet that echoed some oft-repeated security advice. It read: "Encourage your loved ones to change passwords often, making them long, strong, and unique." Cranor wasted no time challenging it.
The reasoning behind the advice is that an organization's network may have attackers inside who have yet to be discovered. Frequent password changes lock them out. But to a university professor who focuses on security, Cranor found the advice problematic for a couple of reasons. For one, a growing body of research suggests that frequent password changes make security worse. As if repeating advice that's based more on superstition than hard data wasn't bad enough, the tweet was even more annoying because all six of the government passwords she used had to be changed every 60 days.
Managing Encrypted Backups in Linux, Part 2
In part 1, we learned how to make simple automated unencrypted and encrypted backups. In this article, I will show you how to fine-tune your file selection, and how to backup your encryption keys.
Getting started with Tails, the encrypted, leave-no-trace operating system
Tails, an encrypted and anonymous OS that bundles widely used open source privacy tools on a tiny device, is one of the most secure operating systems in the world. The Linux distribution rose to popularity when it was revealed Edward Snowden relied on Tails to secure his identity while sharing NSA secrets with journalists Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras. In the past half decade, Tails has been embraced as an essential security suite by journalists, hackers, and IT workers.
Tails is an acronym for The Amnesic Incognito Live System. The OS runs Debian and is easy to run on Macs and PCs from a USB drive. Tails encrypts all local files, runs every internet connection through Tor and blocks all non-secure connections, and provides a suite of secure communication tools like the Tor browser, HTTPS Everywhere, OpenPGP, the Claws Mail client, I2P, an IP address overlay network, and a Windows 8 camouflage mode to deter over-the-shoulder snooping.
Never Trust a Found USB Drive, Black Hat Demo Shows Why [Ed: Windows autoruns stuff]
Does dropping an infected USB drive in a parking work when it comes to a hacker luring its prey into a digital trap? The answer is a resounding yes.
At Black Hat USA, security researcher Elie Bursztein shared the results of an experiment where he dropped 297 USB drives with phone-home capabilities on the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign campus. He also explained how an attacker might program and camouflage a malicious USB drive outfitted with a Teensy development board to take over a target’s computer within seconds after plugging the drive in.
