So anyone still living majority of the time in shell?

Linux - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 15:03

Just curious if anyone still lives or works mostly in shell/command line... Granted one would need to jump into a DM or WM for WWW to do banking or online shopping, but for me seems to be lots of good stuff to bide my time in the command line world. I'm about 25% shell 75% X, but I hope to make it 10% X and 90% shell soon to where my laptop just boots directly to shell.

Wasn't sure who else was in this camp, if anyone ...

Bottom navigation guidelines?

Developing Android Apps - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 14:49

I'm looking for some guidelines/advice regarding the bottom navigation.

I have an app where you can search for movies, view details, add to collection, etc. Let's say I have these 3 tabs in the bottom bar.

  1. Search
  2. Favorite movies
  3. Collections

From each of these tabs you can open movie details page. From movie details page, you can go to a collection page (if the movie is added to some collection) and then you can again select a movie (from the collection) and so on.

For the bottom bar navigation, I have these 3 scenarios.

  1. Bottom bar is always visible. If you open a movie page from search, the search menu is selected. Now even though you open a collection, the search menu will be selected. If you tap on collections menu in the bottom bar, it will show the list of collections, but if you click on search menu again, it will show the collection that you had opened.

  2. Bottom bar is always visible. If you open the movie from search page, the search menu is selected. But if you open the collection page from the movie page, the selected tab will be collection page. The navigation root is updated. Here, back navigation would be troublesome, I suppose.

  3. Bottom bar is only visible for root level navigation. For any other level, it's hidden.

Are there any case studies or guidelines regarding such situations? Do you have any personal experience with this. If yes, what would you recommend?

[Meta] /r/Linux should be focused on Linux news, tech discussions and major community developments, but not ongoing drama.

Linux - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 14:33

Can't you see it too..? What's happening to this community is caustic, and reddit's Linux community is on the verge of becoming yet another place for high drama, niche politicized grandstanding, and an ongoing bad-faith argument over a highly manufactured 'culture war' between two polar opposite factions of overly-sensative 'outrage' addicts who seemingly have nothing better to do than to play off eachother's delirium.

Don't get me wrong, Linus changing his ways and taking a little time off was worthwhile news, as was the implementation of a new CoC.

But ever since those original stories broke, there has been a constant and ongoing attempt by people to rehash and re-litigate them, adding nothing new to the discussion and existing only to throw more gasoline onto a bonfire of mere drama that is being engineered to consume the entire discussion. At some point, enough has to be enough.

We simply don't need to hear every individual take on the pros/cons of the CoC in hourly self-serving threads, nor should we be hanging on the every tweet and toot that happens to comment on the drama of the day. People matter, code matters, programs matter, fundraisers matter, new releases matter, discussion and news matter too. But the constant drama, the wave after wave of fact-free sophistic bullshit, and the links to random wikis, youtubers, and twitter twits do not.

Regardless of where you stand on the CoC or Linus' personality developments, I challenge anybody to argue in favor of the never-ending stream of drama posts - you can't: there is no upside.

It's for that exact reason that I want to suggest the migration of drama discussions to a new subreddit /r/linux_drama, where users can freely and openly discuss things like Linus' attitude, the CoC, accusations and arguments, and all other stuff that can only really be classified as "drama" until they are blue in the face. We have a sub for newbies, we have a sub for gaming, we have a sub for memes, we have a sub for asking questions. And now it's time to make a sub for drama, so that this sub can go back to focusing on the news, developments, and discussions that actually matter, before it becomes too late to salvage. It's time to make a rule against never-ending drama posts, and to refer those people to /r/linux_drama, where there are few rules and where discussions of gossip and drama are fair game.

TLDR; Let's return /r/Linux to being a place to read about Linux news, tech discussions and major community developments, and let's have ongoing community drama discussions move over to /r/linux_drama.

[HOW-TO] Automatically share WiFi password with your guests

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 13:47

Ever had someone over and had to tell them your WiFi password while they slowly typed it in? Or you had to take their devices and type it in yourself?

No more!

Now simply send them the password automatically if they text you WiFi while you're connected to the network! :)

Check out a video demo here.

Check out the full tutorial here.

You can also directly import from here if you're on the Tasker beta.

Hope this helps someone out!

Can someone help me figure out a more specific solution to making my app compliant with Play TOS?

Developing Android Apps - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 13:45

I got an email last night that my app was removed from the Play Store:

Issue: Violation of Usage of Android Advertising ID policy and section 4.8 of the Developer Distribution Agreement

Google Play requires developers to provide a valid privacy policy when the app requests or handles sensitive user or device information. We’ve identified that your app collects and transmits the Android advertising identifier, which is subject to a privacy policy requirement. If your app collects the Android advertising ID, you must provide a valid privacy policy in both the designated field in the Play Console, and from within the app.

I was able to find this thread and it seems like a lot of people got their apps removed recently for similar reasons, but everyone in that thread seems to agree it's because of Crashlytics, which I'm not using (though if it's that popular, maybe I should be). My app has ads with a paid upgrade to remove them. If I'm doing any sort of user tracking it's unintentional and I don't actually use any of it. I'm guessing it's something built into the ads library, and I'm not sure if that tracking is necessary for the ad targeting to work?

So either I need to disable that tracking somehow, or add a privacy policy. I saw some people sharing around this privacy policy generator and I started filling it out, but I have no idea what to put for "personally identifying information I collect." I wasn't collecting any information that I knew of until now!

This is all a little frustrating and overwhelming -- I'm a developer, not a lawyer! Any help is appreciated.

Here's a full list of my dependencies:

dependencies { implementation fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar']) implementation('com.github.ozodrukh:CircularReveal:1.3.1@aar') { transitive = true } implementation "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib-jdk7:$kotlin_version" implementation 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:28.0.0-rc01' implementation 'com.android.support:support-v4:28.0.0-rc01' implementation 'com.android.support:support-media-compat:28.0.0-rc01' implementation 'com.android.support:design:28.0.0-rc01' implementation 'com.android.support.constraint:constraint-layout:1.1.2' implementation 'com.android.support:recyclerview-v7:28.0.0-rc01' implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:15.0.1' implementation 'com.anjlab.android.iab.v3:library:1.0.44' implementation 'com.android.support:customtabs:28.0.0-rc01' testImplementation 'junit:junit:4.12' } submitted by /u/Ashanmaril

The CoC should include protections of contributors from accusations. Specifically, their outside life is off-limits.

Linux - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 13:29

People quoting what people say on their personal time on their personal twitters, etc, is not correct. If some type of anti-social can be proven on official mailing lists to a project, then maybe there is a point. If said bias only exists in their personal life because obviously the person conducts themselves in a professional manner, then there is no issue.

A CoC should not restrain contributors. It should restrain the project and be a contributor bill of rights.

To unsuspecting admins: Firefox continues to send telemetry to Mozilla even when explicitly disabled.

Linux - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 13:15

It has become apparent to us during an internal audit that Firefox browsers continued to send telemetry to Mozilla even when telemetry has been explicitly disabled under the "Privacy & Security" tab in the preference settings. The component in question is called Telemetry coverage.

Furthermore, it seems from 1 that Mozilla purposefully provides no easy opt-out mechanism for users and organizations who don't want to participate in this type of telemetry.

We decided to block Mozilla domains completely and only unblock them when updating the browser and plugins. I wanted to share this with all of you so that you don't get caught off-guard like we have. (It seems that even reputable open-source software can't be trusted these days.)

What favors more by linux(any distro,any kernel version)? Addressing all driver issues.

Given that ryzen 7 1700 has 8 cores in it.
