Airplane mode problem

Linux - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 21:44

Play dota 2 on my laptop which has Ubuntu 18. 04 installed on it. As I completed my match I went to the lobby and above there was a title that said I am in offline mode. Then I closed the game and saw that near my battery symbol, there is a airplane symbol. I went to Network settings but there was nothing I can do.

After sometime I restarted my laptop and then the airplane symbol was gone but when I went to the Wi-Fi and bluetooth settings, the button to toggle Wi-Fi on wasn't there and the button to toggle bluetooth can't be changed and it was written and connect a Bluetooth dongle to use Bluetooth.

I used the USB tethering and it was working but I don't know why the wireless tethering is not working. Please help me.

Reminders on Android are a painful, slow, and frustrating experience, and Google needs to do something about it

Android - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 19:48

Google Assistant's reminder capability is handy... right up to the point that you tap on a reminder notification on Android. At that point, you get stuck waiting 5-10 seconds (Pixel XL) for it to load the list of upcoming and active reminders.

It's pretty bad, yet years of updates have seen no improvements.

I'm almost at the point of seeking alternatives.

Reminder usage isn't that uncommon, so... what's up, Google?

The reminders have other annoyances too. For example, when I say "remind me tonight" in a voice command, I always mean 8 PM, not 6 PM! Yet if editing one from the time selection drop-down, "Night" does mean 8 PM.

I think it's past time that Google overhaul and rethink reminders via Google Assistant on Android. A better, faster UI, with more convenient options.

Question about "ip link show up"

Does this command show the status of the interfaces that are configured to be UP, which means if an interface is down the same command will show it as down.

Or does it just show the interfaces that are just UP?

Thank you

Help with autoweb plugin...

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 18:13

I just started using autoweb plugin for tasker and it has a lot of potential.

I am looking to use Merriam Webster's medical dictionary API to return the definition of a term.

Now the base URL is[my key goes here]

Now to get the definition the 'test' in this URL has to replaced with a term you want to define

So the endpoint is{termtobedefined}?key=[my key goes here]

I am so far so good, but I am lost as to how to replace {termtobedefined} in input function through tasker and then return output. Basically I don't know to generate input and output for the API action.

Also the API uses only XML and not JSON

Any help would be appreciated.

Any better way to solve this?

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 17:59

I have an exit event to hide scenes and floating bubble. But in this app, everytime I use Autovoice Recognize, the dialog comes up and cause my exit event gets to trigger.

  1. Turn off the exit event profile and then turn it back on when done

  2. Use enter event to get it back when the dialog disappears. I don't like this option. Too many things flashing off / on the screen

Do you have other ideas?

Thank you.

Cooking with Linux (without a Net): Video editing on Linux using Kdenlive and ArcoLinux, too!

Linux Journal - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 17:16

Please support Linux Journal by subscribing or becoming a patron.

It's another Tuesday and another excuse to sip some red while doing some live Linux and open-source experimentation. Yes, it's time for Cooking with Linux (without a Net), and on today's show, I'll show you how to edit a video using the Kdenlive video editor, how to trim said video, adjust audio, fade between clips and apply all sorts of fun effects. Then, I'll show you how to turn that masterpiece into a video format suitable for uploading to YouTube! All of it live, on camera, and without the benefit of post video editing—therefore providing a high probability of falling flat on my face. Once we're done doing art, I'll try out ArcoLinux, another distribution you've probably never heard of, and I'll go through the installation for you. If it wasn't already obvious, this is a pre-recorded video of a live show.

How do I prevent my app from crashing when it enters the background?

Developing Android Apps - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 16:37

(Using Android Studio)

My app runs fine, up until the point where I exit the app (not close it) and it ends up in the background. I get "Application has stopped" whenever this happens, and in Logcat i always get a NullPointerException.

Is there a way pause the app 'as is' on exit without crashing, then when the app resumes (user opens app from background), the app continues executing where it left off?
