This package installs unbound and enables DNSSEC automatically along with a systray icon to show the status and allow configuration.

Given the recent assaults on the Internet's DNS protocols[1], this is an extremely useful package.

Playerctl is a command-line utility for controlling media players that implement the MPRIS D-Bus Interface Specification.
mpris command-line controller and library for spotify, vlc, audacious, smplayer, qmplay2, and others.
>> Playerctl makes it easy to bind player actions, such as play and pause, to media keys.

# Command the first instance of VLC to play
playerctl --player=vlc play
# Command to Toggle vídeo
playerctl --player=smplayer play-pause
# Command all players to stop
playerctl --all-players stop
# Command VLC to go to the next track if it's running. If it's not, send the # command to Spotify.
playerctl --player=vlc,spotify next
# Get the status of the player
playerctl --player=smplayer status

Example and use of playerctl within a toggle script for managing several players.:
Code: Select all
export MPD_HOST=

PID=$(pgrep "headset")
if [ -z "$PID" ]
echo "Toggle mpc"
echo "Toggle HeadSet"
if [ "$(playerctl --player=headset status)" == "Stopped" ]
echo "nada"
mpc pause
 playerctl --player=headset play-pause

PID=$(pgrep "QMPlay2")
if [ -z "$PID" ]
echo "Toggle mpc"
echo "Toggle QMPlay2"
mpc pause
playerctl --player=QMPlay2 play-pause
mpd &
mpc toggle &

MPC. What is it? It is a minimalist command line interface to MPD. I have been using it for a long time and realized that I don't need anything else.

fizsh: Friendly Interactive ZSHell

Fizsh is a frontend to Zsh. It provides the user with interactive syntax highlighting and a Matlab-like history search facility. At the same time it can handle Bourne syntax.

So it acts like fish but it's really zsh with fancy clothes.

Another similar alternative would be grml's zsh configuration, which is ****ing lovely:

But don't bother with oh-my-zsh, it's a pile of garbage :mrgreen:

vnStat is a console-based network traffic monitor. It keeps a log of hourly, daily and monthly network traffic for the selected interface(s) but is not a packet sniffer. The traffic information is analyzed from the proc filesystem. That way vnStat can be used even without root permissions. ... ng-ubuntu/

~$ vnstat --help
vnStat 1.15 by Teemu Toivola <tst at iki dot fi>
-q, --query query database
-h, --hours show hours
-d, --days show days
-m, --months show months
-w, --weeks show weeks
-t, --top10 show top 10 days
-s, --short use short output
-u, --update update database
-i, --iface select interface (default: eth0)
-?, --help short help
-v, --version show version
-tr, --traffic calculate traffic
-ru, --rateunit swap configured rate unit
-l, --live show transfer rate in real time

vnStati is used to produce graphical images representing the network traffic as graphs. It takes the required information to create graphs from vnStat and stores it in the specified location.

Porn Filters Compared: OpenDNS, Neustar, CleanBrowsing, Norton, Yandex and AdGuard ... 1f207062c4

Out of the 88 porn domains, I expected all of them to be blocked. Only CleanBrowsing blocked them all, with Norton SafeConnect very close in second place by missing 5 domains:

CleanBrowsing: 100% blocked
Norton: 94% blocked (83 blocked, 5 not blocked)
Yandex: 93% blocked (82 blocked, 6 not blocked)
OpenDNS: 89% blocked (79 blocked, 9 not blocked)
Neustar: 81% blocked (72 blocked, 16 not blocked)

Testing free proxies
There are many easy to use free proxies that should be blocked when you are filtering access to pornographic content. When testing the top 10 free proxy domains, only OpenDNS and CleanBrowsing blocked all of them.

fuse-zip is a fuse filesystem, that enables any program to work with a ZIP archive as though it is a plain directory. Unlike KIO or Gnome VFS, it can be used in any application without modifications.
Unlike other FUSE filesystems, only fuse-zip provides write support to ZIP archives.
Also, fuse-zip is faster that all known implementations on large archives with many files.

General usage would look like this

1 mkdir /tmp/zipArchive
2 fuse-zip /tmp/zipArchive
3 (do something with the mounted file system)
4 fusermount -u /tmp/zipArchive

Be patient. Wait for fuse-zip process finish after unmounting, especially on a big
