The Linux Penguin

Linux Computing

Various small fixes for Linux based systems (and more for Gentoo).

Garmin Forerunner 920XT, Edge 800 and GPSMAP64s and QMapShack using these Garmin GPS devices with Linux, and also the mapping program QMapShack.

For some time now running remote USB webcam ELP 1080P AR0330 H.264 (Full HD / 3.6mm / max 1920x1080 (FullHD ) / 9:6) over Raspberry Pi3 (running Raspbian Stretch) using a a total of 13m USB cables (3+5+5), uvcvideo driver, fswebcam to test and some scripts off a CRON job to grab frame every 15 minutes and push to website (using fswebcam to get frame and add a banner (incl. timestamp), identify to check not to dark or bright and lftp to push the frame to website).

Samsung S3: IIRC had problems at start transferring files on/off using USB, so use Explorer (Speed Software), or similar) to copy to a local network drive on router (Asus/TomatoUSB variant), then SMB mount from Linux PC. Or pull the SD card, and USB mount direct on PC.

Nexus 7 (v2): as Samsung S3
