Hi there Dave,

John is right, you're going to get faster and more assistance on the bunsenlabs forums since this one no longer notifies of replies.

Do me a favor and give me output of:

"java -version"

and not

"java ~version"

#2 Re: Help & Support (Beginners) » Help on Serviio Media Server » 2015-10-07 15:00:38

Hi there Dave,

it's telling you that to start it after installation, you would enter "./bin/serviio.sh" in a terminal window, assuming the executables have been installed in /bin.

If this had happened to a 'Murican,  we would have stormed the data center housing the server and shot it to death and then sued Bunsenlabs for pain and suffering.

I hope Ahab Goodbottom locks the forums shortly.  My OCD won't allow me to unpin this tab from my bar until I can be absolutely sure no other posts will be made.

Gotta go to K-Mart.

That's exactly what we're talking about here. The Crunchbang forum has the power to alter people's names.  We're never going to get that back with another forum.

Back on topic, thank you for all you've given us, Ahab Goodbottom.

I am awfully happy with my Samsung S4.  Large enough screen for me to be able to read everything, not big enough to call a phablet, and powerful enough to not have to deal with stutter and lag when using the more taxing apps.

And the citizens are suing to stop it.

Two things I think after reading it:

1) This is going to start popping up everywhere, at least in the US now... regardless of how the lawsuit pans out.

2) This is going to push VPN tunneling out of the tin foil camp and make it much more mainstream.  We all may want to buy stock in some VPN companies.

This means Windows 7 and Windows 8 users can choose not to download the updates or, if they have already been installed, they can be uninstalled and neither operating system will automatically reinstall them without user permission.

Taking this a step further, Windows 7 and Windows 8 users can right click on any updates shown by Windows Update and choose ‘Hide Update’. This will stop them being searched for and accidentally installed again.

Sounds scary.

My current nightly reading:

Before you assume that I fancy myself a thinking man, I'll read almost any book that I find on the $1 shelf at the store.  It makes for varied and sometimes incredibly dry reading.  All the better to get to sleep, I guess.

I've always found myself unable to listen to instrumentals that, to my ears, lack an interesting audiological component and just loop a hook repetitively until the end of the song. It's probably why I never spent any time in dance clubs.

Well, I think I managed to muddle through it.  I can send a file from the computer to the phone on it, it just doesn't seem to mount the phone storage as a drive.

Heya folks!

I'm trying to set up my laptop to utilize my bt headphones and am not having much luck bending Google to my will.

First off, my bt dongle is a Panda BT 4.0 adapter, which reviews and comments led me to believe worked swimmingly in linux.  From the incredibly optimistic instructs:

For Linux Users:

Plug the Panda BT 4.0 Adapter into your Linux computer and let linux install the drivers for the Panda Adapter.  You should be able to pair any Bluetooth keyboard/mouse to your computer after that.  You might need to install additional software if you want to use other Bluetooth devices with your Linux computer.

So dongle plugged in and nada, so I began doing some checks, with the assistance of the Goog:

schwim@schwim-lt-UbOb:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth start

So these are all the commands I found to check status of bt devices and services but I can't get past that point to the point in which I actually resolve the issue.

Could someone school me on getting this set up?  I use BT a lot on my phone but have never set it up on one of my PC's.

[EDIT]Got a little further:

schwim@schwim-lt-UbOb:~$ hcitool scan

    CC:6D:A0:39:00:26    Roku Player

And to connect:

Confirm passkey (yes/no): yes
Release
New device (/org/bluez/1952/hci0/dev_08_FD_0E_AA_43_60)

Which should have connected to my phone.  I got a confirmation on my phone and it looked like it showed a connection, but my BT icon shows disconnected on the phone and I don't see the file system anywhere on the laptop.

Do you also have GVFS and GVFS-Fuse installed?  Both were needed for me to be able to work on the network mounts in Thunar.

Yes that is exactly what it is.

Which is what Apple and Android have been doing all along with their OSes.  It only makes sense that with MS'es attempt at making a one-size-fits-all OS for mobile and desktop, they would go in the same direction.  The only thing that surprises me is that people are still surprised by something like this.  If you're not purchasing a product, yada yada, you know the rest.

On a related note, I love my Windows installs and like all other new versions of the OS, will grab 10 as soon as the first major patch is released.
