owncloud client selective sync of folders on Ubuntu/Debian Linux

Submitted by ricardo on Sun, 09/07/2014 - 15:09

Since owncloud selective sync only got in after 1.7.0 version of the client i was searching how to use it right away.
But Ubuntu 14.04 ships with owncloud 1.6.2, therefore we need to go around and hack some packages to be able to use this before it reaches ubuntu stable repos:

First install the 1.6.2 client:

sudo apt-get install owncloud-client

Submitted by ricardo on Wed, 05/14/2014 - 14:16

Yesterday we gave a workshop at the @IST in Lisbon .
Based on that experience i created an automation script that installs "all the things" and makes your local Linux Debian/Ubuntu box run the latest drupal version in around 3 minutes.

Give it a try by running this on the command line:

curl -s http://www.ricardoamaro.com/d7install.bash | sh

The easiest way you can watch webex recordings on Linux is by converting them to mp4 using the NBR2MP4 Converter supplied by webex.

Here are the steps:

cd ~
wget http://support.webex.com/supportutilities/nbr2mp4.tar
tar -xvf nbr2mp4.tar ./
chmod +x ./nbr2mp4.sh
cd nbr2_mp4


Testing the Debian Gnu/Hurd OS

Submitted by ricardo on Sun, 11/10/2013 - 11:04

Gnu Hurd is the initial planned replacement for the proprietary UNIX kernel. It has been under development since 1990 by the GNU Project of the Free Software Foundation and released as free software under the GNU General Public License.

Long before Linux came out this was the main targeted kernel to couple with GNU tools, the GCC compiler, X-Windows, perl, emacs, etc.
