There are endless possiblities to stream music from your computer to your phone over wifi, but few dedicated howtos that walk you through the process step by step.
Alreet.Sometimes Mendeley content has to move. There’s no easy way to tell Mendeley that. So.
sudo apt-get install sqlitebrowser
cd ~/.local/share/data/Mendeley\ Ltd./Mendeley\ Desktop/
- Go to »Execute sql«-tab
update Files set localUrl = replace(localUrl, 'file:///old/path/‘, 'file:///media/new/path/‘);
- click »Execute« (or F5 or ctrl+return)
- click »Write changes«
- Done. Easy, right?

Following Robert Seale’s advice, I was looking for a solution to batch rename photo files. After my last shoot I used digikam and while the results were as desired, it took a second or more per image, which I thought a bit long. After not finding a different suitable solution I asked the question on unix.stackexchange and was overwhelmed by two people’s in-depth answers. I learned a lot from both mikserv and Gilles and in the end settled with Gilles’ suggestion. I take zero credit for the solution, I don’t even understand parts of what is going on, but I amended it a little bit nonetheless and thought the extended version might help someone.*
What I get when I come home is file names looking like this:
_DSC1234.NEF. What I wanted instead was
- date-shot in YYYYMMDD-format plus
- a descriptive shoot-name plus
looking like this:
There are a few issues with this:
ad 1. Date Shot: sometimes I can only copy and rename the files a few days after shooting, so the date should reflect the date the picture was taken, not the date it was copied. Getting date-shot from the file itself is difficult as there is no birth time recorded. The closest is
mtime which is the time the file’s content has last been modified. However, creation date is stored in image file’s EXIF data.
ad 2: Name of Shoot: Ideally I wanted this to be a variable I could set as a parameter when calling the script.
ad 3. Number of Image: This should reflect the age of the image with the oldest one having the lowest number. The problem is that cameras usually restart numbering at
0000 once they hit
9999. So images n-9999 can potentially be older than 0000-n. I needed a solution that would cater for this special case.

My ubuntu 12.04 computer cannot see my Android 4.1.2 phone, instead I must install go-mtpfs and control it via command line. Thankfully, Andrew over at webupd8 provides all the necessary tools (all credit goes to him, for long version see there):
When you connect your camera to your computer and have the image displayed on your screen as you shoot, it is called »tethered shooting«. One reason you might want to do it is to have more people see the results instantly (common in fshion shoots).
I recently got my hands on a shiny eee-PC for surprisingly little money. As I am travelling a fair bit at the moment, the opportunity was more than welcome. Now, mobility comes at a price and the price is called »multiple instances of files«. When
Since 12.04 my thinkpad (T60) regularly shuts down due to heat. I don’t like it and I am afraid of damage – to hard drives or to the system.
The problem is described in many places and many different fixes, remedies and work arounds exist. Most

Way too many issues with a first attempt drove me to the decission to reinstall. I had a look around and made eye contact with fedora, arch and debian but in the end thought I?d give a clean xubuntu installation a second chance – and I did
I have phases in my work cycle, where I want to limit internet access to myself. Thus, I created a »work-user« and in the user’s properties I unticked the boxes

- Connect to wireless and ethernet networks

I thought that should do the trick, yet it didn?t restrict internet
I was somewhat flabberghasted when I found out my mobile phone (Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot) was unable to play .mp4, .flv, .avi and what else I tried. It refuses to play all video formats save .3gp.
I was unable to convert to this with avidemux. Google
