Speed up Chromium (Linux) with VAAPI on ubuntu – a first look

Chromium Browser does not have hardware accelerated video decoding enabled by default (also Google Chrome). Fedora recently published Chromium with GPU decoding enabled (https://fedoramagazine.org/chromium-on-fedora-finally-gets-vaapi-support/), now there is also a Chromium Snap-Package with Video Acceleration API support for giving it a try on *buntu.

Why ? Smoother video playback and less CPU resources used 🙂 (and maybe some feedback to the developers if problems occur).

QGIS goes Flatpak – a quick review with (k)ubuntu and Manjaro 18(KDE)

Although *buntu is in love with snaps (snapcraft) to deliver and update apps on any Linux distribution, it was time to have a look on the new QGIS 3.4 Flatpak package. And using Manjaro with a dated QGIS-version (and non-GRASS) in its repo, Flatpak is the quick solution.

Strong team: YubiKey and Keepass (Linux)

Password managers like Keepass(I pefer KeepassXC)/Lastpass offer a nice choice to manage all your „accounts“ with different user/password strings and with very complex (and long) passwords. If someone gets access on your keepass-database and the password for it – bad luck. Authentication-Hardware like YubiKeys provide more security on your keepass-database and work like a charme on Linux.

Update: AT_GIS_GRID Transformation ArcGIS Pro 2.2 and QGIS 3.2 (Austria NTv2)

Since ArcGIS Pro 2.2 and QGIS 3.2 arrived recently, it was time to have again a look if and how the AT_GIS_GRID for CRS-transformation between Austrian BMN (Bundesmeldenetz) and ETRS89 (and WGS84) is implemented. The easy question: Does EPSG::5891 (AT_GIS_GRID NTv2 transformation) work out of the box ?
