Happy new year 2013

I wish you a happy new year 2013.

I have hoped in 2000, that the new century will be a new one. A century that will unlock, release the chains that humans have put on themselves and on the others. Others are the majority, still dominated by a handful. Dominated in the names of whatever that suited their own interests.

Still, a few of the handful try to give back to the needies.

Hopefully, a handful of the handfuls are still trying to bring the “Light” to the World. Knowledge is the Key, in my humble opinion. Knowledge that I am a human, alive, that no one can chained up, with lies and cunnings. What is “true” for me is also true for my fellows. Albeit, I prefer to recoil in order to see what is happening. Knowledge that all living things are to be respected. Life is the most precious treasure.

I am a failure, but perfectible. If not, what are the reasons by being here ? Of course, I speak in my name (personal).

And hop a nasty guitar tune, that I try to master:

Hello,

After almost two months of hiberbation, due the exceptional climate.

In Switzerland and France, calamitous seasons. Hopefully, we are relatively “epargnes”, at least in the regions we are,

By the time I’m writing this article, it’s cold inside albeit a sunshine at outside.

Yesterday, June 30th, was the end of Schools, therefore the traditional “Fete des ecoles” was celebrated. My grand son, was happy for the gathering and saw his dad in uniform.

Last month, we were away in Spain to seek the warmth of the Sun. We do appreciate the sun, beach, eating. Take easygoing from the turmoil of economical and political affairs.

Where do we go from there ? I prefer not to think to much, but will stay alert.

Tesing Guitar with “both” humbuckers
Saturday 12 January 2013

popularity : 1%

I’ve changed the stock humbuckers with refurbished ones (vendor told me they are putty good for the deal). N is 8,x K, B is 16,x K. Mid switch postion.

Testing with Beta Alvin amp. Distorsion position.

The Guitar is German brand one, made in China. I ain’t neither an expert luthier nor player.

That are the main reasons I fiddle with cheaply made guitars and amps, but I thank the workers who made them available for guys like me.

Sometimes, some people say that the material could be as good as the branded ones, but a lot cheaper.

Again, thanks to the myriads people out there who are sharing their experiences and counsels.

How do I feel ?

I don’t appreciate Genf and France do something really bad.

Don’t tell me that I am paranoid and that’s only imaginations.

For one, I am been cheated by own country, France for my retirement pension.

For two. I am been cheated by Genf CH, my other one. Foulplay and destabilization. It’s stinking to the highest level. Amazing, but so true and real.

For three. Cheated by Countries I used to know and travel over. This last thing, I will one day tell what I was thinking of their pratices. On a really a short time: since 4 years at most.

For all the same motive,

How do I feel ? I want to vomit.

I’ll strike back. You are warned.

Hello,

My little “billet” for April 2013.

This first quarter of the year was tiresome. I am hoping that this year will be happier.

With the passaways of parents, illness, my own eyes operations, problems with back social cotisations, bad weather, the consequences are enormous on the state of mind.

Good side: My long awaited French retirement pension is coming. Thanks for that.

But comparing to others, as read and listened in the media, I will be ashamed to complain.

Life is what it is, I have to cope with that.

Spring season is a time of renaissance. I want to look at the good things too.

Happy season.

Debian Firefox java plugin update. Oracle/Sun
Thursday 14 March 2013
by philippe Vo cong tri
popularity : 1%

1) Intro:

This is mainly for my usage.

Debian Squeeze.

Java packages are non-free, and Debian is using other alternatives. I stuck with jre Sun (Oracle), and firefox.

FIREFOX 19.02

jre1.7.0_17

How to update Java plugin ?

For Linux, Debian is not supported (.deb). But, by looking at the Oracle-Sun site, there is a link for taking care of Debian users:

http://www.duinsoft.nl/packages.php?t=en

Sorry, I forgot to note the link from a contributor: how to point /etc/alternatives. Thank you.

2) Cookbook: (citing excerpt) (root)

a) /etc/apt/sources.list: deb http://www.duinsoft.nl/pkg debs all

b) apt-get update

apt-get install update-sun-jre

The later does the work retrieval, checking, dpkg latest java package. Takes some time to finishing up. Read the result. On y Debian, it keeps the previous Sun-Oracle package, as it was not installed by Debian repository (my tweakings).

The new java package is installed at /opt/java

3) Check: because I have installed the previous version of Sun-Oracle, with tweakings of y own.

file /etc/alternatives/mozilla-javaplugin.so

If it is not pointing to the right plugin /opt/java/32/jre1.7.0_17/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so do rm /etc/alternatives/mozilla-javaplugin.so

ln -s /opt/java/32/jre1.7.0_17/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so /etc/alternatives/mozilla-javaplugin.so

4) update-alternatives —config java

“l existe 2 choix pour l’alternative java (qui fournit /usr/bin/java).

Sélection Chemin Priorité État

0 /usr/bin/gij-4.4 1044 mode automatique

* 1 /opt/java/32/jre1.7.0_17/bin/java 1 mode manuel

2 /usr/bin/gij-4.4 1044 mode manuel ”

5) user: restart Firefox

about: plugins

gives:

“java(TM) Plug-in 1.7.0_17

Fichier : libnpjp2.so

Version :

Java plug-in for NPAPI-based browsers. ”

Repository for the update script

Eeepc 701 – Debian Wheezy 7.1
Friday 6 September 2013
by philippe Vo cong tri
popularity : 11%

1) Intro:

For my own usage.

I’ve decided yesterday to upgrade my little “workhorse”.
– 4GB Ro, 4GB ram, new 16GB sdcard (where Wheezy is installed) .
– Usb flash key, 2GB. (empty). 1) Unetbootin: Easiest.
– Download debian-7.1.0-netinst.iso (277 Mo).
– Use unetbootin to prepare bootable usb flash key.

2) Install:

– Insert flash key on the left side, sdcard on the right side.
– Boot Eeepc.
– Esc key, to choose usb flash key.
– Menu: Install.

I use “manual” install; (here, I have ha some little problem: must use automatic partitionning for the whole scard, ext4 and swap).
– Choose boot optionfrom sdcard (/dev/sdc).

3) Boot in the new OS:

– On boot, [ESC], choose sdcard.
– First user session: KDE. (though I expect Gnome). KDE, is really nice and intuitive. More than the last time I used it ( 3/4 years ago).

Wheezy is quite rapid on Eeep 701.

– I install most of the apps I use to work with on Squeeze. Just missing avidemux.

With the help of Eeepc 701 wiki: ulcview (camera), eeepc-acpid-scripts … At the moment, I don’t use Wifi.

I install firefox 23 for linux, in my userspace and execute it in its own folder. No trouble to install it in /opt. Since I am the sole user. It does run with no apparent problems.

PNG – 147.7 kb

5) Conclusions:

Wheesy is really good with Eeepc 701. Happy.

6) Links:

Addendum:

– #apt-get install deb-multimedia-keyring
– #aptitude install flashplugin-nonfree

Debian 7 Wheezy LXDE on Eeepc 701
Friday 11 October 2013
by philippe Vo cong tri
popularity : 1%

I) Intro:

As a sticker.

Eeepc 701. 4GB SSD. 2GB ram.

II) Install Wheezy LXDE:
– Use Usb stick with stock Wheezy desktop (via unetbootin).

In short:

1) unetbootin via Squeeze -> Wheezy.

2) boot. Choose usb stick.

Follow the wizard:

– Install graphically . Screen option 7.

– Install in situ. SSD 4GB. Whole disk auto.
– Detect auto: ssh server (unselect it), do not select desktop item. Choose repositories

– grub install.

3) reboot Eeepc 701 (take out the usb stick).

4) login su (terminal).
– Base install takes 1.5GB.

5) apt-get update

6) apt-get install lxde net-tools iceweasel eeepc-acpi-scripts lxtask alsa-utils luvcview mplayer clamav …

7) cat /sys/devices/platform/eeepc/camera (should give 1).

The additonal packages are needed to let Eeepc 701 run properly as I need (video camera, audio (via alsa-mixer…).

No tweaking to access network Web (eth0).

Fn+F2 Wifi, shows the Wifi access points. I do not use it.

8) security update:

– apt-install synaptic update-notifier

Found missing by browsing on the net …

IV) Links:

http://www.debian.org

https://wiki.debian.org/DebianEeePC

http://wiki.lxde.org

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugr…

V) Conclusion:

I can’t install libreoffice, takes too much space nor Gimp.

I have installed at most utilities to check the internals and access to the web. I will use it as escape route.

– Result:

– rootfs is 3.5GB .

– After the installation as above: free space is 882M … Can’t do more. Beware of /var, /tmp …

Cross my fingers.

VI) Followup:

– 20 october 2013. I can’t use the shutdown button. Shutdown options popup screen disappears after a very short showup. I have to use the terminal.

1) Intro:

Ainol Novo 7 Crystal 2 (quadcore), 1gb, 8gb rom). SN: novo7crystalQ130608G0021925

The 7″ tablet was used by my grandson for almost 2 months. I have checked it, I saw that the play store has disappeared and other curious things. After having reset the tablet ( parameters-> backup/restore), reboot, it just shows a popup window: “sorry, the app xxx has stopped” … Click ok, it re-popups … Can’t go or click other icons.

2) Flash firmware:

I download some roms firmware, by googling the forums.

— Ainol Novo 7 Crystal II Quad-Core 20130322-V1: just stopped at 35%.

http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/758… A particular room firmware bricked the tablet, it is a rom made for Ainol novo 7 venus quadcore. The flashing did finish without error (?).

– The one that works for the tablet: 2013.05.07 v1 4.1.1,3.4.0+, CrystalQuadCore.

04/12/2013

The main events in 2013 are:

– The passaway of my Mother-in-law, Elvire. Peace.

– My wife receives her retirement pension (after asking for it in 3 months). My relief insurance pension AI, was reduced about 30%.

– OCAS (the office which provide the pension) asked me to justify all my revenue for a period of 6/7 years (or so), because I didn’t paid my AVS since the time I received the said pension. I didn’t aware about the subject, thinking It is due only if I have a profesional activity. One officer of OCAS asked me by phone if a have a fortune for living (??) The French fiscal administration asked the same (I told them that my fiscal taxes are paid in Switzerland). I received a fine plus what I and my wife owe to AVS. Strange that all the papers were asked to me only. I paid of course.

– After more than 3 years asking for my french retirement, with a lot of papers, medical visits (?). I got my “real” social security number !! The Swiss government has given me the address where to write for finalysing the demand. I received my backlog pensions at last. Officially I am a French retiree.

– My operations of eyes cataract.

– My wife operation.

– In December, during my wife’ sojourn convalescence home. My son receives a letter for AI authority office threatening to cut his invalidity pension, because the said office haven’t received the feedback from medics as required. My son is under wardship authorities, living at a specialised center, and work.

It was the first time since 1994, he received such a letter. Of course, my daughter has done phone calls to the AI office, to explain. The manager didn’t know that my son lives at the center ! But they know my son was in wardship (administration). He told to my daughter that the wardship has received the same courrier.

WHY NOBODY HAS DONE ANYTHING ?

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF HE HASN’T ANY FAMILY MEMBER LEFT TO TAKE CARE OF HIM ? NO PAY NO CENTER !!!

I HAVE BEEN TO THE CENTER TO GIVE THE LETTER TO A PERSON WHO KNOWS WELL MY SON, SHE TOLD ME THAT EVERYTHING IS IN ORDER, IT WAS AN ADINISTRATIVE PROBLEM!!! UNBELIEVABLE.

I HAVE TAKEN CONTACT WITH THE PHYSICIAN THERAPIST, TO CLEAR UP THE MESS. THEY WILL SEND THE REQUIRED PAPERS TO AI OFFICE ON THE NEXT DAY.

I AM REALLY FED UP, AND PISSED OFF.

To y son, I love you:

The year 2013 is going to end. Good health , peace of mind and fight evil lurking around my little family in Genf.

I know that we should not complain for our situation. But we have prepared our path since a long time ago and be prepared for any conspiracy..

Conspiracy is not an accident.

Happy new year to you who read me and to the people I love.

Vào năm 2013 sẽ kết thúc. Sức khỏe tốt, sự an tâm và chiến đấu ác bí mật xung quanh gia đình nhỏ của tôi trong Genf. Tôi biết rằng chúng ta không nên phàn nàn cho tình hình của chúng tôi. Nhưng chúng tôi đã chuẩn bị con đường của chúng tôi từ một thời gian dài trước đây và được chuẩn bị sẵn sàng cho bất kỳ âm mưu… Âm mưu không phải là một tai nạn. Chúc mừng năm mới cho bạn những người có nghe thấy tôi và những người tôi yêu
