    Re: HOWTO: Get Grim Fandango Working with Wine

    Don't bother with the patch. Just use residualvm as in my post directly above yours. It doesn't use any of the EXE from GF, only the data files, so no bugs in the EXE need to be patched. I played...

    Don't need Wine: use ResidualVM!

    Found my son watching a youtube video of Grim Fandango yesterday and surprised him by plunging into my archives and bringing out the original CDs: loved that game.

    After struggling with this to...
  3. Re: New Juniper NC utility available

    It turns out I may have a bit longer access to Juniper Network Connect, rather than losing it this Wednesday. But even if I do my last day of access is coming soon (within weeks at most).

    I...
  4. New Juniper NC utility available

    Hi all. First the good news. I decided to completely rework the script that I have, and write it in Perl/GTK2 as a complete and separate UI to the Juniper Network Connect that replaces the Java UI...
  5. Re: HOWTO set up Juniper Network Connect VPN on Ubuntu Dapper

    Hm. I don't know what "Error 98" means.

    Maybe that port is used by something else? Run:
    sudo netstat -lntp | grep 4242 and see if some other program is bound to/listening on that port already.
  6. Re: HOWTO set up Juniper Network Connect VPN on Ubuntu Dapper

    Sigh. After hours and hours of frustration I've figured out why my new installation on Ubuntu 12.04 was not working.

    I've uploaded a new version (1.30) of the script to my website. In addition...
  7. Re: HOWTO set up Juniper Network Connect VPN on Ubuntu Dapper

    If you are having failures connecting, look at the log file (~/.juniper_networks/network_connect/ncsvc.log) and see if anything interesting is there.

    If you need a URL instead of a simple...
  8. Re: HOWTO: transfer videos from your TIVO to your Ubuntu desktop or Android using kmt

    FYI I filed a bug in Launchpad here about the "hang" during ffmpeg. If you see this problem and have a Launchpad account you should go mark that bug as affecting you: the more people that it impacts...
  9. Re: HOWTO: transfer videos from your TIVO to your Ubuntu desktop or Android using kmt

    Transferring TO your TiVo is much simpler. Go get pyTivo from here and that's all you need to do. It's very simple, very easy. You may need to install "ffmpeg" (you can find it by searching...
  10. Re: HOWTO: transfer videos from your TIVO to your Ubuntu desktop or Android using kmt

    Hm. I killed this ffmpeg to let the process continue, then it hung again in the same place (again at 44% done) in the same way during the ffmpeg remux step. I killed that too and it's proceeding to...
  11. Re: HOWTO: transfer videos from your TIVO to your Ubuntu desktop or Android using kmt

    Hrm. On this second attempt I tried to choose a smaller file (The Simpsons episode) to avoid longer download times. While the first file worked all the way up to the HandBrakeCLI step, on this...
  12. Re: HOWTO: transfer videos from your TIVO to your Ubuntu desktop or Android using kmt

    Michael: the issue with wine is a known bug; see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-keyring/+bug/885492
  13. Re: HOWTO: transfer videos from your TIVO to your Ubuntu desktop or Android using kmt

    I had to go to work while the show was still downloading. When I got home I discovered it failed in the HandBrakeCLI step; as above I have to use the snapshot PPA because there's no release PPA for...
  14. Re: HOWTO: transfer videos from your TIVO to your Ubuntu desktop or Android using kmt

    Something else: I have a 64bit Ubuntu install and comskip is a 32bit app; when I run it under wine I get a warning:


    p11-kit: couldn't load module:...
  15. Re: HOWTO: transfer videos from your TIVO to your Ubuntu desktop or Android using kmt

    Oh and a slight improvement on your comskip shell script, which avoids customization for the current directory:


    echo 'wine "$0".exe "$@"' > comskip
  16. Re: HOWTO: transfer videos from your TIVO to your Ubuntu desktop or Android using kmt

    I'm downloading a file right now--very nice!!

    FYI, for a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 I needed the following extra/different steps:

    First, you need to:


    sudo apt-get install curl mencode

  17. [ubuntu] Re: Why can I hear but not see DVDs, same after conversion?

    Hi all. Sorry for the delay: work is always busy after a vacation. So, I'm a little less travel-weary and I have a bit more information. Some things make more sense.

    First let me say "thanks"...
  18. [ubuntu] Why can I hear but not see DVDs, same after conversion?

    Argh. Why do things have to be so complicated? I don't want to become an AV guru, I just want to share some video!

    I went on a trip and they gave us a DVD with some fun video set to music. ...
  19. Re: HOWTO set up Juniper Network Connect VPN on Ubuntu Dapper

    If you use my script then you don't use FireFox at all so the version of FireFox should not be an issue. I'm not using the latest Ubuntu yet but so far I've never seen a new version of Ubuntu break...
  20. Re: HOWTO set up Juniper Network Connect VPN on Ubuntu Dapper

    Hi all; I'm surprised that you were seeing an issue with 32bit/64bit with my script (or were you not using my script)?

    A while ago I added code to my script to detect this problem and suggest the...
  21. Re: HOWTO set up Juniper Network Connect VPN on Ubuntu Dapper

    Not sure what you mean by "nothing happened"... it looks to me like the connection started. You have the GUI application visible and the status is "Connected" and you have an IP address. It's a bit...
  22. Re: HOWTO set up Juniper Network Connect VPN on Ubuntu Dapper

    You don't need to install sun-java5-*. Anyway, I don't have those installed and my network connect (Release Version : 6.1-0-Build13103 / Build Date/Time : May 6 2008) works fine.

    What you DO have...
  23. Re: HOWTO set up Juniper Network Connect VPN on Ubuntu Dapper

    Well, my assumption might have been wrong in the first place. Maybe it's not waiting for something from stdin.

    One thing you can try is changing the script like this:


    #!/bin/sh
    tee...
  24. Re: HOWTO set up Juniper Network Connect VPN on Ubuntu Dapper

    That's good.



    Hm. Well, we're on the bleeding edge here so in a way I'm not surprised that it's having problems. However, have you looked at the content of the /tmp/java.err* and...
  25. Re: HOWTO set up Juniper Network Connect VPN on Ubuntu Dapper

    Sorry, that was my fault. I should have tested it ;) You need to single-quote the EOF; the variables are being expanded when you create the script instead of when it's run.

    Please try it like...
