Controla amarok desde tu cama utilizando bluetooth

Hace tiempo que estaba buscando algúna aplicacion que me permitiera manejar mi notebook en linux utilizando mi celular nokia 5200 (exiten varias para windows) después de provar con varias aplicaciones sin que ninguna me diera resultado encontre Remuco un servidor que nos permite manejar nuestro reproducto de música favorito en linux (xmms2, amarok, entre otros). A continuación mostrare los pasos a seguir cuando se quiere hacer funcionar eso utilizando amarok sobre Ubuntu Hardy.

Agregar los repositorios para descargar el servidor remuco para amarok y el cliente para tu teléfono móvil.

deb hardy main

Luego debes instalar el servidor remuco que funciona con amarok, este es el servidor normal y el código para el cliente que debes subir a tu teléfono (debe tener soporte para java).

$ sudo aptitude install remuco-server remuco-client

A continuación debes crear una carpeta y un archivo el cual contiene la configuración para el servidor

$ mkdir ~/.config/remuco/

$ gedit ~/.config/remuco/Amarok.bpp



running = dcop amarok

playpause = dcop amarok player playPause
next = dcop amarok player next
prev = dcop amarok player prev
next = dcop amarok player next
stop = dcop amarok player stop
seek-fwd = dcop amarok player seekRelative 5
seek-bwd = dcop amarok player seekRelative -5
volume-set = dcop amarok player setVolume $PARAM
jump = dcop amarok playlist playByIndex `expr $PARAM – 1`

playing = dcop amarok player isPlaying
volume = dcop amarok player getVolume
plob = dcop amarok player nowPlaying
playlist = cat `dcop amarok playlist saveCurrentPlaylist` | grep “<Title>” | sed -e “s,^ *<Title>\\

Debes reinciar el servidor

$ remuco --restart

Y para terminar debes subir los archivos remuco.jar y remuco.jad que se encuentran en el directorio /usr/share/remuco-client

Para utilizarlo debes iniciar amarok y el servidor remuco he ingresar a la aplicacion en tu celular llamada remuco, seleccionar el player que estas utilizando (te saldrá amarok) y listo ya podrás controlar amarok desde tu celular, podrás cambiar la cancion subir el volumen y además ver el nombre de la cancion que estás escuchando en la pantalla de tu celular.

Espero que esta guía les sea util, para mayor información o como configurar otro reproductor les recomiendo que lean el wiki de remuco

Freenode de luto

Hoy mientras revisaba mi screen en freenode en encontre con el siguiente global del staff de freenode

[17:18] -christel- [Global Notice] On the 12th September Rob Levin, known to many as Freenode’s lilo, was hit by a car while riding his bike. He suffered
head injuries and passed away in hospital on the 16th. For more information please visit #freenode-announce

Una lamentable noticia para los usuarios de esta red en su mayoria desarrolladores de software libre

Un pequeo extracto de lo se esta hablando en #freenode-announce en este momento

Now ignoring JOIN PART QUIT from #FREENODE-ANNOUNCE (refnum 1)
[18:03] <christel> the first question we’ve had is “What happens to freenode?”
[18:03] <beu> to answer the “who verified this?” question, members of freenode staff have been in contact with Rob’s family over the past few days
[18:04] <christel> it is Debs wishes that freenode keeps running as close to normal as possible, and we will be working with the PDPC board to ensure that
the network keeps running
[18:04] <beu> we are currently formulating an announcement and hope to have it online soon, in addition to an online “book of condolences”
[18:05] <christel> it has also been asked why lilos client is still connected
[18:05] <christel> i am sure you will all agree that at this point in time, we feel uncomfortable killing his client and find the mere idea rather morbid
[18:05] <christel> Robs nicknames will be quarantined to prevent abuse.
[18:06] <christel> A lot of people have asked how they can help
[18:07] <christel> Debs requests has been that people who knew Rob could donate to PDPC in his memory, or those wishing to make a more general contribution
could give something to a bicycle safety campaign in their area.
[18:07] <beu> this question is cropping up a *lot*: yes, sadly rob did indeed pass away this morning, no, this is not a hoax
[18:08] <christel> we will also try to coordinate so that we can get some things together for Debs and Benjamin, but at this point in time she has no
particular wishes in that regard. Those wishing to help his family however, are encouraged to get in touch with us per email (again and
we will try connect you with those in the area that are coordinating support.


Condolencias a la distancia
