This is what I think one need to do to test if that would work

  • get latest ubuntu live cd
  • install bottles
  • run label printer installer for windows in bottles
  • check if the program runs at all

If the device is a COM device in windows then I think it should just work out of the box. If not, then the entire device needs to be forwarded using udev rules to wine. Let me know if you want to attempt this :)

This sounds interesting. What the hell is RevOS? What kind of label maker is that? Does it have a name? Do you know what kind of cable it's using to communicate with the pc?

I've not worked with batteries but I would assume there are two pins for voltage and ground, one temperature probe pin and or two pins for serial communication (probably I²C). If batteries would have had some sort complex handshake then it would have needed a corresponding UEFI patch so that system is able to refuse booting if the power level is too low. That's why I assume there would be no handshake (unless it's apple ofc).

Yeah true, though it's dealt with already. Time to put the lid back on that can.

How is it that one cannot purchase a bunch of flat rectangular batteries and just put them inside the laptop (wherever they fit) and connect them manually to some custom charge controller? We do it all the time on other devices like drones and shit. We have generic round cylindrical batteries, why isn't there flat generic Li batteries?

hahaha It actually did, I found out shortly after initially posting this. I'm constantly reminded that I haven't learned reading yet (documentation, datasheets, terminal output etc...)

I usually try to avoid bad habits like this but this time it was justified.

The Ubuntu laptop had to connect to company vpn. It were using openconnect-network-manager-gnome thingy to do that. Recently the company upgraded their vpn software which is sorta incompatible with openconnect and requires a modified user agent string for it to prompt for 2FA keys. package in ubuntu 22.04 is too old to modify that in the gui. I tried in the terminal manually, editing the config manually with vim and even dumping the config from my personal Arch laptop. We also tried proprietary Cisco AnyConnect but there is probably a server misconfiguration which causes the connection to drop and reconnect once a minute. In Ubuntu 24.04 it works given the user agent modification, and even though it was released a couple of weeks ago, LTS users don't get the update before mid August. So the easiest solution was to take the software compile it in the VM and use it there. It's a temporary solution but we had to have something working by the next morning. With such setup it's an annoyance to have password prompts show up. On top of that the keyboard is kinda fucked and some characters register multiple times making the situation with passwords even worse.

If you have a good idea what I could have tried let me know, love to hear new ideas.

I've run passwd and sudo su; passwd to change password for root and my account. Password is set correctly when using sudo and su but whenever I get prompted by pkexec it accepts only the old password. I've rebooted my system to make sure it was not an issue.

Edit: Solved Turns out the password were changed for root account but not my user account. I think the reason is that there are no password quality requirements on root accounts, but there are on the default account in ubuntu. Changing the password from root account passwd user worked fine.

what? shouldn't blocked domains be routed to 0.0.0.0 instead of loopback? This might cause the system generally to wait for a response instead of instantly realizing those domains don't exists

It's not always about storage. It can also be more processes that drains battery, more attack vectors etc.

It is common for companies to neglect financing in cyber security for a quick short term gain. And at the same time the laws are created such that an offensive hacker would be the criminal. By turning the law around the blame would be on the company for building insecure systems, just like it is right now companies get problems if they would create unsafe products for consumers.

What do you think would happen if laws would change in such a way, that gaining unauthorized access would become legal? Note that I've intentionally excluded permission to share sensitive information. Would love to read your responses and thoughts

Apple MacBook SSDs (self.hackintosh)
submitted 4 months ago* (last edited 4 months ago) by Agility0971 to c/hackintosh

I've picked up an old MacBook air 2013 from trash without battery and ssd. I want to see if I can bring it back to life. Apparently Apple does not use standard SSD. Do you know about any adapters in the market that would make it possible to use a standard SSD? I don't want to spend money on non standard SSDs that works only on macs. I don't even know if it work even at this point.

Hi, what do you use to cooperate on simulink projects? I tried using git on GitHub at first but the issue is that GitHub has a size limitation on blobs. It suggested to use git-lfs however that filled the storage space up almost instantly. is there any other solutions you've found useful?

I'm looking for an extension that makes the workspace on multi monitor setup independent. Right now If I switch workspace on my laptop it changes on the big screen as well.

Reset flash drive (self.linux)
submitted 10 months ago by Agility0971 to c/[email protected]

I've been messing with my flash drives trying to follow some random documentation with dd and now both of my flash drives are reporting 0 bytes of free space. I was trying to clear out everything and start from scratch as if they were new. I wonder if there are any program out there that can just sudo reset-everything /dev/sdX

I'm experiencing an issue with commands that provide a tui interface like journalctl, systemctl and vim. It feels like terminal dimensions are not matching up somehow. And this issue is present only some times. On host I'm using Black Box and I tile my windows using pop os tiler. I'm also frequently scaling the font with ctrl + and ctrl - shortcuts. Remote sshd host is running Debian variables $LINES and $COLUMNS are set. bashrc files are in their default state.

How is this supposed to work? Isn't my terminal client sending new $LINES and $COLUMNS each time there is a change?
