Finally of line routing for ubuntu touch! OSMScout

Nice app which is free or small £2 fee for support

I installed from the app store and just installed the UK map. This app has re-route function and route from bike or car. The developer has had problems adding the download location to the SD card as some of the maps are like 1 gig, but there are work arounds and im sure this will get sorted soon, basically down to security. This is one of the reasons i dual boot on the nexus 7 for navmii on the android side, im getting closer to dumping dual boot on the nexus 7 as soon as i get some remote desktop and mouse support. This is the type of app the developer wants a pat on the back for. Awesome.

Developers launchpad:




Now dexter is probably the only series i had to think twice about onDexter-Season-6-Bloody-Angel-Wing-Poster the first couple of the first season then come to realise im hooked, addicted and happens to be the best series ive ever watched in my life, the way the story rolls out just drags you in to dexters crazy serial killing life. Debs his sister (wife during filming) plays a awesome role and compliments the story amazingly. If you havent watched the 8 seasons of dexter all i can say is watch it now, I loved every minute, miss the season and bough the T Shirt! WATCH IT.

all systems go, vivid vervet


tile11-350x200I managed to get all systems hooked into vivid vervet yesterday, id potentially held the upgrade due to intel drivers on my xps sputnik and brand new shining intel nuc i3. The intel graphics driver that gives the acceleration for games, steam etc is required on a stock ubuntu install and is currently only supported on 14.10 by intel. But like all good hackers i deceided to take the plunge and go through out seeing the team at canonical just dished me vivid for my BQ4.5. The nuc was playing up a tad and this is my main CCTV system for the house and unfortunately at this precise moment in time with my harassing weird neighbours i need to have my car / house and all angles covered! i use zoneminder in a full  time recording no motion just full so i dont miss a thing, i have this serving 5 cameras and throwing alerts and remote viewing to my mobile which i watch full time when on high alert! any way i wanted it on on vivid with the intel drivers and this fix does it nicely ..

run this

sudo nano /etc/lsb-release

and add this DISTRIB_RELEASE=14.10

for now just put a hash in front of the other lines.

then download this ( i have ubuntu vivid 64 bit so downloaded 14.10 64 bit from here -> https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads

then you will need this libopenvg1-mesa as the installer doesnt know were to pull this from i just got it  from here -> http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/m/mesa/libopenvg1-mesa-dbg_8.0.2-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb

install the libopenvg1 then install the intel deb then i went to my programs and started the intel installer – this should run all the way through and then reboot and you got the updated graphic drivers!


4 admins now!..



and there is more 4 admins… well maybe remove the trouble making admin? who in my time of 8 month of neighbourhood watch never attended a meeting, thats all of the people in the household… why be admin on a site your clearly not involved in? just to cause trouble. simple. BOYCOTT THIS SITE – this she be made public im going to create a site and talk to the council, police and who ever has the power to stop this joke.


BOYCOTT -> Ashton Road Morecambe Neighbourhood Watch



How can this be classed as a Ashton Road Morecambe Neighbourhood Watch site? the admin in harrasing and clearly doesnt know how to run the page? infact he doesnt even attend the meetings? these people call you dick head when you walk out of your house and they have corrupt meetings and had a family removed from the street. Want more details mail me and il give you the all the information you require.Selection_002

ssh on BQ ubuntu touch phone


Connect your device via USB, enable Developer Mode in:

“System-Settings->About This Phone->Developer Mode”

…and run (from your PC, make sure to have the phone screen unlocked, else adb will refuse to let you in):

adb shell android-gadget-service enable ssh

Copy your public key to the Phone:

adb shell mkdir /home/phablet/.ssh
adb push ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub 
adb shell chown -R phablet.phablet /home/phablet/.ssh
adb shell chmod 700 /home/phablet/.ssh

adb shell chmod 600 /home/phablet/.ssh/authorized_keys

Now you can look up your IP on the phone and use ssh to connect:
adb shell ip addr show wlan0|grep inet
ssh phablet@<IP from above command>

technology, linux, life and music… what else is there?
