BeagleBone Green Wireless adds WiFi, BLE, USBs

TuxMachines - Mon, 2016-05-16 23:51

The module also includes Bluetooth 4.1 Low Energy (BLE) with support for Bluetooth Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) for stereo-quality audio control in automation projects. The Green Wireless SBC also supports Node-RED for wired IoT, and it integrates with the MRAA library, “so users can program with more Grove modules,” says the company.

Features borrowed from the BeagleBone Green and Black include the ability to run Linux on a 1GHz, Cortex-A8 TI Sitara AM3359 SoC with an Imagination PowerVR SGX530 GPU and a programmable PRU subsystem for industrial I/O. The 3.4 x 2.1-inch SBC similarly supplies 512MB of DDR3 RAM, 4GB of eMMC flash, and a microSD slot.

Converting xlsx/odf to pdf

Reddit - Mon, 2016-05-16 23:45

I have had a very frustrating afternoon trying to convert an xlsx document I constructed and edited using pythons openpyxl module into a PDF. I tried using command line tools like libreoffice --headless and ssconvert. The problem with former is the scaling mode needs to be changed to fit page to width/height before converting to PDF but I can't do this via the commandline only in GUI which isn't suitable. The latter converts well with most xlsx files but not any constructed from openpyxl (formatting alters into a nightmarish mess). I was wondering if anyone was able to point me to a nice command line tool as an alternative to the aforementioned?

Setting up download to a different harddrive

Reddit - Mon, 2016-05-16 23:36

Hello r/Linux I have recently purchased a SSD and plan on installing Ubuntu/Linux on my desktop.

I have one question, how would I be able to have all my OS files on my ssd and set up my computer to send all downloaded material to a separate hard drive? I want to automate this so I don't run out of space with files I don't need in a few months.

Any advice would be appreciated or a link that can guide me in the process thank you

Linux kernel 4.1 and greater distros, comparable motherboards for GPU pass threw.

Reddit - Mon, 2016-05-16 23:08

So I'm wanting to move from Windows to Linux but I want to be able to play games I've been doing some digging and know it's possible but I'm not sure which distros have kernel 4.1 or greater. I also can't tell if my motherboard is capable of doing it ether. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to do this on a X99 motherboard. Everything I've read only talks about the mainstream boards. I know the Extreme edition of Intel's CPUs will work but the tectorial I read said I need to enable VT-D with X extension I looked in my UEFI and found VT-D but nothing else. My mobo is a MSI x99 SLI plus bored so if anyone knows if it will work or a board that will work.

Mozilla and Linux Foundation Advance New Trends in Open Source Funding

TuxMachines - Mon, 2016-05-16 22:02

Who pays for open source development? Increasingly, large organizations like Mozilla and the Linux Foundation. That's the trend highlighted by recent moves like the expansion of the Mozilla Open Source Support (MOSS) project.

The Mozilla Foundation has long injected money into the open source ecosystem through partnerships with other projects and grants. But it formalized that mission last year by launching MOSS, which originally focused on supporting open source projects that directly complement or help form the basis for Mozilla's own products.
