Video deshake con Linux: stabilize a shaky video with Transcode pt. 2

canon_mossa

Whole an article in the 2013 that was the subject of stabilization of shaky videos.

Notwithstanding that the best outcome would be to use one stabilizer physical (a simple grip with a weight at the lower end) or a accelerometer solidarity (there are those who have made a kinect).

Also in this case we will use Transcode, so if we have not installed it will be necessary to do so:

5 GNOME Shell extensions that will make your life easier

GNOME

After all hiding from the blog, a mouthful broad appeal is just what we want. I did not want to shoot too high, so I opted for "facilitate" rather than "change". Also because there is little change, not?

Today we see how to speed up some operations using extensions Gnome Shell. But first, a clarification for those who do not know what is Gnome or Gnome Shell.

Unlike other operating systems, in GNU/Linux the back-end and the GUI are two separate things. A computer that mounts Linux can and should work even without interface

Bcache: the advantage of having a layer between SSD and HDD in terms of speed

hd_crash

Ok, the truth is that these days are not very inspired with titles, unfortunately you will have to settle. Today we talk about speed and SSD / HDD. We will not make the usual benchmark to demonstrate the superiority in speed of solid state disk (it is a fact that it is faster), Instead we understand that it can be useful and economical to add a layer to take care of to communicate the two disks to speed up the process of burning the old HDD.

Hardware information on Linux

hardware

More than three years ago I wrote an article about lshw and lshw-gui, a program and a GUI that allow us to "see" inside the computer all the individual components (CPU, RAM, video card, sound card, network card, etc..). The GUI now has changed its name, it is not more than lshw-gui but lshw-gtk. Aside from that, I realize that after more than three years, the article is still current and does not need additions.

Start a program with GUI remotely via SSH

shell

I do not often have to start an application on a remote machine that requires the use of the GUI, more widely in applications to launch and "turn" in background, but it can always happen. I'm thinking for example to those who use a computer as a multimedia station (with XBMC setup is very simple) or even just to experience.

Suffice it to say that you can do, but it is necessary to direct the GUI application to a screen in particular.

Enable the plugin “zen coding” su gedit

zen-coding

For those who do not know, gedit is the text editor of choice for any Linux distribution based on Gnome. It is preinstalled on most Linux distributions, with the exception of those based on different window managers from Gnome (Where, xfce, enlightenment, etc..). It is primarily used for editing configuration files for system, but supports a large number of programming languages ​​and is expandable with plugins dedicated.

For this reason, before use Brackets, I used Gedit also for editing HTML and CSS.

This is gedit.

Brackets: l’editor “of” and “to” HTML / CSS e JavaScript

brackets

Ok, the title is not very good, but I did not know how to explain in a few words Brackets need to write code HTML, CSS and JavaScript, and is also written in HTML, CSS and JavaScript. You are already going to the loop, true?

Personally, for writing HTML and CSS I have always got on well with Gedit, the built-in editor in Gnome. Scelsi Gedit for the interface devoid of frills and for the possibility to personalize (also extending its functions through plugin). The basic settings are sparse, but "wandering" between the preferences you can enable different functions to make it a complete editor.

Modify users and groups in the new versions of Ubuntu

user-group-icon

It can happen for any reason a user (System Administrator) should put his hand to groups in the pc. It can happen for any reason, or program that requires them to change (VirtualBox, Wireshark, etc..). With the new release of Ubuntu, it was decided that the software had reached a maturity that can be administered without user intervention groups, it was decided that the average user does not need to know that there are groups, nor to change them. Remain valid all the terminal commands, but a GUI does not exist.
