Canonical wants to push Snap Software packages (https://snapcraft.io/) since some time … while updating my Ubuntu (Kubuntu) 19.04 to 19.10 a strange pop-up appeared…
Normally opening a geopackage in ArcGIS Pro (2.3.0) works fine, but recently I came across a new „nice“ error-message: „Underlying DBMS error… gpkg is remote mounted and in WAL-mode„.
Sometimes creating a folder-connection in ArcGIS Pro (V 2.2.3) can be tricky or not possible at first glance. System-defined folders (folder links) like Documents, Downloads, Pictures etc. on the left side of the connection dialog can’t be used („OK“-button disabled).
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).
Playing around with QGIS and geodata containing a time dimension (e.g. animal tracking) offered me some nice possibilities. The „geometry generator“ symbology and TimeManager PlugIn enable some nice visualizing workflows without generating new geodata.
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.
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 ?
I didn’t use Netflix for some month on my Nexus 7 tablet with Cyanogenmod 13 (Android 6). A few days ago I wanted to use the netflix app – and what a surprise: films only play with audio, no video. Maybe an update of the app ? Nothing was available and the best… it was not listed anymore in my PlayStore :-/
