Connected to wifi but no internet

Linux - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 22:50

Hey there, I'm on Fedora 28 and having problems with my internet connection: I'm connected to a WiFi network, but can't access the internet. When I try to ping, I get "Name or service not known", "n packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss". Wenn I ping, I get "Destination Host Unreachable" After system restart it sometimes works for some minutes, and if I try long enough, single sites load. But most of the times I keep getting timeouts or no connection warnings.

"Allow Phone Access" in WebView will not stay checked

Whenever I check "Allow Phone Access" and then back out of the screen, it un-checks itself. I have a stock T-Mobile Galaxy Note 9 on Android 8.1. Any ideas?

Samsung releases a new Good Lock Module, MultiStar. Can force any application to splitscreen and keep both windows active. (ie: netflix in splitscreen, or play 2 games at the same time).

Android - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 21:45

As google is actively making it harder to use split screen in pie, samsung is making it more robust and powerful. This is the first time i've ever seen and OEM allowing users to experiment with forcing any app to splitscreen, even the ones that don't support it. (I know this can be turned on in dev options!)

The most interesting part is being able to have both windows active, which I'm sure people here that been playing with native splitscreen since nougat have encountered plenty of apps that pause when its not the main window... kinda killing the point. Anyways, I don't think there is a non root way to enable this before, but this does open up new opportunities for power users. You can play 2 games at the same time. Or have a game open and a guide open.

You can finally get netflix to work in splitscreen! Was so weird that netflix could support pip, but not splitscreen.

And this is samsung, so all these apps can also work in the floating windows too.

The question would always be, does most ppl really need all this options? Not really, but it sure is nice to have when you have a phone with a large ass screen, flagship processor, and up to 8gb ram.

Sadly it seems like this app needs api 27 (oreo 8.1) so for now, only note 9 and maybe the tab 4 would work. Not sure if samsung is planning on updating older phones to 8.1, or skipping directly to 9.

Some games can also get kinda buggy when force splitscreen, but that's expected. ymmv.

cmder questions on Windows. Help a noob out

Command Line - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 21:12

Just installed cmder after being unimpressed with GitBash. I just got a new Windows laptop.

I normally used iterm2 on Mac and LOVED it. Just got a Windows machine. I use Vim and Git heavily and just have some stupid questions regarding cmder.

  1. iterm2 on Mac starts INSTANTLY when I click the shortcut for the terminal. Cmder seems to take about two seconds to open up and get to where I can type. Yeah, this isn't the biggest deal, but it's annoying. I like things to be snappy. Is there anything I can do, or is it this way for everybody?

  2. How in the world do I switch to a new tab in cmder using the keyboard. For iterm2 I would just use cmd + shift + [ or cmd + shift + ]. This was extremely fast and fluid. What is the windows shortcut?

  3. How do I split my window into two panes USING keyboard shortcuts? In iterm it's just cmd + d to split vertically. Then I can easily swap between them.

  4. How do I get lists to wrap around the current window dimensions? iterm2 would always do this so I wouldn't have to scroll up. For ex, on cmder I can press "ls" and there's a giant list of shit that goes outside of the dimensions of the currently opened window. How can I make things wrap?

  5. How do I show HIDDEN files doing an ls? I DO NOT want to have to do ls -a everytime, I just want everything to show doing ls.
