Chromium not playing flash content? Install pepper flash

So one of these days I head up to YouTube, and I simply couldn’t watch any movies. Went check vimeo, same result. Tryed to make a speedtest, nothig. I got worried, but then I came accros a post, stating that the flashplayer would be discontinued for chromium-browser. But there’s an alternative! YAY! (:

Simply install pepper flash

$ sudo apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree

xUbuntu 14.04 LTS | Post Install – part I

YES! I love Xubuntu! It’s one of my favorite distros on-par with #!, debian xfce, trisquel and ElemnetaryOS.

It’s light on my system, quite simple, user friendly (in a way that my father uses it) quite pretty out of the box, and simply gets things done easily. At first install, I hated it and ran to pure ubuntu, but it got better and I decided to take for a spin.

Now, let’s begin…

First things first: you’ll need to update you’re software sources. Feel free to copy mine, for the time being. Don’t forget to update the mirrors as close to your location as you can.

[TugaPower] The best CyanogenMod 12 rom for the OnePlus One

Greetings, sailors.

As you can see from the post title, this is all about Lollipop love for the Oneplus One. I’ve always been a bit reluctant on using non-oficial releases for my devices. It’s cool, don’t ge me wrong, but there’s always some trust issues triggered when using custom roms, particularly non official ones.

But since I own a developer friendly phone, I’ve decided to try CyanogenMod 12, meaning a lollipop android 5.X.X rom, on my phone. And I couldn’t be happier.

I’ve been using it since early January, and I couldn’t recommend any other rom. Not even cyanogen’s. Here’s why:

  • Ive strted using it mainly because it’s compiled in Portugal (which is something rare these days)
  • I’ve known the compiler for a while now from zee interwebs. And he’s a cool motherfucker.
  • It comes with SuperSu on it, contrary to official CM12
  • It incorporates latest CM12 bug fixing and voodoo and goodness.
  • It has an awesome battery life
  • It self-updates if you choose to (via OTA)
  • IT’S LOLLIPOP, BITCHES!

Shure it’s buggy at somethings, but keep in mind that CM12 is not yet finished. So having a solid lollipop rom, its pretty cool.

Things I dislike:

  • Release cycle It has daily updates: every single fucking day, at around 22h00 (10pm) CET. The mirror where it’s hosted, is fast as lightning. I simply don’t like to be noticed everyday of updates
  • The release numbering. It’s always TugaPowerV[something] not TugaPowerV1. Something. It just pisses me off.
  • Not having stuff like the official camera app (from OPO’s 4.4.4 stable release), as a default app.

But these are only minor things. I’m using it and I recommend it above all things similar.

I’m hoping the developer kindly addresses these issues of mine. But he probably wont. ^^

Linux again

So it seems I had it wrong. I can have dual-boot system (win+linux) afterall. Saw this line of code on pc properties, that allowed me to see that my bios wasn’t on UEFI mode, even thought it seemed like it. So I ran to my 3rd favorite distro: xubuntu (for testing purposes), download it flash it to usb stick, bam! Dual booting again!

I played a bit with it, but it has a naggy bug on it: volume info keeps popping up, out of the blue. I also had some issues, and theming, so head straight to #!, it’s been running almost in a week now, an boy I’ve missed it :D :D Continue reading
