My oldest has been binging on the soundtrack to the animated movie Sing - so I got to enlighten her on who Stevie Wonder is:



so nice that she is graduating from Disney Kid pop music.

I seldom use the webcam on my laptop. Privacy issues aside, it would be nice to have a properly formatted bash script that will tooggle the integrated webcam off/on and save myself some memory and power use.

This method works just fine so it's easy to blacklist the module at boot and then use the command:

Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe uvcvideo
to load the module if I want to use the webcam.

But my inner script-kiddee says there has to be an elegant way to do this (surprisingly, I didn't find one online - but I didn't specifically check the Arch Forum either).

I could probably hack something together but that would fail the elegant test.

So a script that checks and then  loads/unloads the uvcvideo module would be a handy item.

Fvwm.

Checking out a new statusbar - polybar status bar. Kind of like xmobar with built in modules, including a system tray. No more of a memory footprint than conky or tint2 so that's good, but had to install a lot of dependencies and devel files so I could compile from source. Designed for tiling wm's like bspwm:

Well, it should be, though it implies itself since it's a front-end for it ( not a stand alone )...

That's true. I've spent too many years proof reading technical and leagal documents.

Awesome filip!

Like it!

Looks better than connman-ui

Thanks!

Indeed, it's awesome really. Looks good, stays out of the way and it's usable when needed.  :)

Btw, I haven't mentioned it here, I'm not the actual author.
I just packaged and patched it to enable window toggling from tray icon.

Looks good.

One item though, don't mean to nit-pick but on your git page you have:

Quote
Dependencies

  intltool
  GLib
 GTK >= 3.10

Shouldn't connman be on the list, this isn't a stand alone application is it?

Well, it should be, though it implies itself since it's a front-end for it ( not a stand alone )...
Anyhow, it's fixed now.  :)

Successfully compiled it on Void Linux.

Nice work.

I'll have to run connman for a while; much smaller memory footprint than NetworkManager or wicd.

Also seems to require root privleges to connect/roam with wireless. Will that be the case on Debian as well?

I'm using it for atleast 6 months and honestly have no idea it's even there. The damn thing JustWorks™.  :D

As to WiFI & root, I wouldn't know since I don't have a WiFi to test ( desktops on LAN all around ).
Though ( on Debian atleast ) I am finding it odd that the "connmanctl" command is installed in /usr/sbin ( thus requiring root privileges )...  ::)
For example, on Arch it goes to /usr/bin...

With that said, you may try to symlink it to /usr/bin:
Code: [Select]
sudo ln -s /usr/sbin/connmanctl /usr/bin/connmanctlI'm not sure that the front-end will even look for it there ( both connman and GUI might need rebuilding for this to work ).

And, after symlinking do verify that it actually works without root:
Code: [Select]
connmanctl scan wifi; connmanctl services
and then try to connect to one of WiFi's listed with:
Code: [Select]
connmanctl connect wifi_xxxxxxxxxx
