Reddit: Operating systems in movies

Thursday 8th of January 2015 01:16:03 AM

I recently watched the movie Open Windows. The entire movie is on the computer screen of the main character. The GUI looks very different from any GUI I have seen (then again I haven't used that many different desktop environments). My questions is: what operating systems run on the computers in movies like these? Is it usually linux with some custom desktop environment or is it an entirely different OS?

Reddit: I wonder if I can control my laptop through headphones?

Thursday 8th of January 2015 12:06:50 AM

The question is: is it possible (and if so, how?) to control your linux linux device through your headphone button?

The idea is: you push the headset button to toggle sound or any other action associated.

The thing is that the button sends certain signal over the input of the mic. Can I detect it and assign it to toggle the sound?

Thanks fo answers.

Reddit: Any idea's for a Linux install on this dumpster dive i found!?

Thursday 8th of January 2015 12:03:09 AM

Ha so I found this Apple Power Macintosh G5 Dual Core (2.3) with 10 gb of ram when I went out to smoke a cigarette outside my apartment and figured it be cool to mess with. No hdd though so i popped in a blank 650 gb i had lying around and figured why not install linux on it. Ill take any considerations for distributions or anything to make it somewhat usefull other than a doorstop ha!

TuxMachines: Raspberry Pi B+ gets it’s Grove on

Wednesday 7th of January 2015 11:53:47 PM

Raspberry Pi’s are great little Linux devices but they have plenty of limitations when it comes to comes to wiring up to the analog world or just behaving like a micro-controller. There’s been various attempts to weld Pi and Arduino together (I have some) like the Dexter Industries’ BrickPi that plugs you into the Lego bricosystem or their Arduberry which brings Arduino shield connectors out the top of the board.

Reddit: Not well known ubuntu based distros for low spec 64bit pc?

Wednesday 7th of January 2015 11:29:13 PM

So, I have an Asus laptop that has a dual core 1.5ghz processor. It's 4gbs of ram and is a 64bit system. It recently stopped working properly with windows (Crashing after sleep), and I have switched back to linux on it. I have tried all the normal ones (Xubuntu, ubuntu, zorin, kubuntu, mint, ect...), and haven't really found one to my taste. Are there any not super well known ubuntu based distros that you might recommend trying out?

Reddit: N00b here, on my Ubuntu Server box I have to hit space every time after I enter parentheses if I want them to show. Why?

Wednesday 7th of January 2015 10:31:56 PM

I set this up to run a LAMP server, my Dad suggested since it's my first real Linux adventure that I use a GUI and the terminal. So I've been using both and no matter where I want to enter it I have to enter it like I normally would then hit space for it to show.

Reddit: Is the Odroid C1 capable of playing HEVC and VP9 media?

Wednesday 7th of January 2015 09:54:04 PM

I was just wondering whether the Odroid C1 was able to play the "next-gen" codecs VP9 and HEVC. Does someone already own one and can try to play those? It would be really interesting for me because I want to replace my Raspberry with an C1 and it would be nice to be able to compress my video library.
