Ubuntu gives itself full access to Google account -- WTF!?

Linux - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 17:07

I just noticed that Ubuntu gives itself full access to your Gmail account, at least in Chromium! What the fucking fuck, Canonical?

This is on Kubuntu 18.10. Here's the screenshot to prove it:

https://i.redd.it/cb44br01nry11.png

Rest assured that I never wittingly gave Canonical, ubuntu.com or my Ubuntu install access to my Google photos, e-mails, files, calendar nor any fucking other thing. And if they somehow got me to click on something, it can only have been through deception.

This is a goddamned scandal.

You can see if you're affected here: https://myaccount.google.com/permissions

EDIT: The icing on the cake -- every time I revoke its access, it comes back, like a zombie. How do I get rid of this!?

Google-smacked for "impersonation"

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 16:58

I wish I knew to search for it beforehand, as I've lost my apps now with 20,000 downloads. It's sad that Google offers no recourse to submit changes and fix your "wrongdoings". Starting over at 0 is no fun. This is my first app so it is a bit disheartening.

On a positive note, it did force me to come up with a more original logo, and I'm just praying they don't decide to smack me again and terminate my dev account.

Sorry for the "dear diary" post, I don't really have anyone to talk to about this stuff.

How I finally got rid of Google Assistant!

Android - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 16:57

So a while ago I posted this screenshot and asked how to stop Google Assistant appearing. It usually only appears when using the home button, but for my phone the shortcut is when you swipe up. This means whenever I am scrolling, Google Assistant occasionally pops up and gets in my way.

For those like me who want Google Assistant to go away, and don't have the option to uninstall this is how to get rid of it.

Samsung: Settings > Apps > Three Dots > Default Apps > Device Assistance App > Device Assistance App > None (or select another shortcut if you want).

Huawei: Settings > Apps & Notifications > Default Apps > Assistance and Voice Input > Assist App > None (or select another shortcut if you want).

Honestly this has been such a pain in the ass for me, I'm really happy to finally have it gone.

Is 800 downloads the first week a good result for a game?

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 16:02

I’ve published a week ago a game (I leave you the links below), and in a week I made 800 downloads. Is it a good result, considering that I didn’t pay for advertising, I only posted some link around the internet. Here are the links.

Which linux to chose?

Linux - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 15:40

I am looking to see which linux would help me learn on I have been told to use mint OS or Ubuntu OS but I would like some suggestions from everyone else for the stuff I want to do on it.

1) I am a gamer who likes to play mmorpgs and other games on my pc

2) I am trying to learn linux for pentesting and network security

3) I have used kali linux and Ubuntu before but briefly no serious usage in the past

4) I am mostly a windows user for many years

which linux would support high end equipment like gpu's and I would be able to learn the linux environment but also be able to continue gaming and other such things on it. Someone else also recommended https://www.suse.com/de-de/shop/desktop/#subnav but I know nothing about this can anyone give me some pro's and cons about these things.

CoroutineScope with Paging Boundary Callback

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 14:34

Hello,

I'm implementing the paging library's boundary callback with coroutines. The onItemAtEndLoaded calls the api service for more posts. How should I pass the viewmodel scope to the boundary callback and how should the api calls should be made with the mentioned scope?

Thanks
