67% of the email that was sent to me was spam for the month Of June 2016. Thanks to a great Spam Gateway I never received them. I am surprise that people are still making money from spamming.
I needed a way to connect the PI to the TV and VNC to that display from my mobile or any device for that matter. Below are the steps I took to accomplish my goal.
– sudo apt-get install x11vnc
mkdir -p .config/autostart
mkdir -p .vnc
if you wish to use a password
x11vnc -storepasswd .vnc/passwd
echo “[Desktop Entry]” > x11vnc.desktop
echo “Encoding=UTF-8” >> x11vnc.desktop
echo “Type=Application” >> x11vnc.desktop
echo “Name=X11VNC” >> x11vnc.desktop
echo “Comment=” >> x11vnc.desktop
echo “Exec=x11vnc -forever -usepw -display :0 -ultrafilexfer” >> x11vnc.desktop
echo “StartupNotify=false” >> x11vnc.desktop
echo “Terminal=false” >> x11vnc.desktop
echo “Hidden=false” >> x11vnc.desktop
This start x11vnc when lxde starts. reboot the system
You can manually run the app ” x11vnc -forever & ”
running free -m , you notice the system is using swap and you are curious to know which process is using all the memory.
total used free shared buff/cache available
Mem: 2000 419 783 2 797 1380
Swap: 2047 0 2047
run the below command to see if your system actively using swap
vmstat -S M 1
Found this nice script courtesy of http://blog.theunixguide.com/?p=277
/usr/bin/time -v ls /etc/resolv.conf
grep Swap /proc/[1-9]*/smaps | grep -v ‘\W0 kB’
ps ax | sed "s/^ *//" > /tmp/ps_ax.output
for x in $(grep Swap /proc/[1-9]*/smaps | grep -v '\W0 kB' | tr -s ' ' | cut -d' ' -f-2 | sort -t' ' -k2 -n | tr -d ' ' | tail -10); do
swapusage=$(echo $x | cut -d: -f3)
pid=$(echo $x | cut -d/ -f3)
procname=$(cat /tmp/ps_ax.output | grep ^$pid)
echo "Process : $procname"
echo "Swap usage: $swapusage kB"; done
I have been hearing about people paying 80+ dollars for a firestick with Kodi installed. Its pretty sad to over charge someone for a application that is free. So I decided to post the easy instructions here .
You can find the instructions on how to install kodi on the firestick at Kodi Wiki . In a nutshell you will need Jarvis Kodi APK and ABPlink
2. You will then need to enable developer mode on the stick and obtain the IP address. Enable developer mode by going to Settings > System > Developer options . Turn on ADB debugging and Apps from unknown sources. Obtain the IP from the same location under <About>
( Note with these instructions you will not need to install ES File Explorer) ES file explorer allows you to install a app from the website. Using ADB , you can push the app to the device over your local network.
3. At the moment the best addon to use is Exodus .
