Setting a DNS domain search in Ubuntu 20
Date: 10/3/2021
Tags: linux
There doesn't seem to be many good results for that search in Google so I'm documenting it. If you want to have an automatic domain suffix set for DNS in Ubuntu 20 you need to edit:

sudo nano /etc/systemd/resolved.conf

And uncomment the Domains field like this:

[Resolve]
Domains=myDomainSuffix

Then restart the service:

sudo service systemd-resolved restart

or reboot.

Vnc startup on recent Ubuntu for Gnome
Date: 4/12/2020
Tags: linux
It's been bugging me for ages that there doesn't seem to be a valid recipe to use the Gnome desktop on Ubuntu under VNC. There are lots of "recipes" out there, mostly for older version of Ubuntu, but often they force a change of window manager or just plain don't work.

Anyway, after some time of hobbling along with a half working VNC server, I stumbled upon a working setup and though it was high time I documented it.

My .vnc/xstartup for Gnome:
#!/bin/sh
[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
vncconfig -iconic &

dbus-update-activation-environment --all
dbus-launch --exit-with-session gnome-session --session=ubuntu &
gnome-shell &

I think I've now got most things setup ok. The InScribe purchase page is working as best I can gauge. The forums are ok...? I can read and post stuff. There aren't a lot of old builds but no one needs them as far as I can tell.

Yell out if you do though.

On the suggestion of a user, I spent some time adding more CSS support to Scribe. To support background images mainly. Check out what you can do now:



It's not complete by any stretch but it's a start.

  • Languages: C/C++, Python, ObjC, JavaScript, Java, ASM.
  • Web stack: Html/Css, PHP, [My]SQL, NWJS.
  • Development: Mercurial, Git, Subversion, Cmake, Unix build system.
  • OS: Windows, Linux, Mac.
  • Other: Simple PCB design, embedded programming.
  • Media: audio mixing & mastering (live and studio), electric and acoustic guitarist, video editing, videography.
I'm located in Sydney Australia but can work remotely if need be. Available from the 6th of July.
