zte g x760 blueline debian ubuntu

ZTE G X760

The ZTE G X760 is also known as "Orange VEGAS". I use one branded "T-Mobile", byt unlocked. I use it to phone and as a backup modem. It's a GPRS (2G) phone. When plugged to a computer through the USB, the telephone promts if it will be connected as "Mass storage" or "COM Port". Depending on the usage, You've got to choose.

Blueline

Blueline is one of the best Internet Service provider in Madagascar. With their mobile telephone product, they have a Data service. I use it to access Internet, with my telephone (see above), on my Ubuntu and Debian laptop. The APN is "bluenet". No password required.

Connecting to Internet

After pluggin the phone and choosing "COM Port", the phone is then detected as a modem

         cdc_acm 3-2:1.1: ttyACM0: USB ACM device         usbcore: registered new interface driver cdc_acm         cdc_acm: v0.26:USB Abstract Control Model driver for USB modems and ISDN adapters        
Then, I had to setup several files:
/etc/chatscripts/bluenet
       ABORT BUSY       ABORT 'NO CARRIER'       ABORT ERROR       REPORT CONNECT       TIMEOUT 10       "" "ATZ &F"       OK 'AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","bluenet"'       TIMEOUT 60       OK "ATD*99***1#"       CONNECT \d\c      
/etc/ppp/peers/bluenet
       hide-password       noauth       modem       connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/chatscripts/bluenet"       debug       /dev/ttyACM0       115200       defaultroute       noipdefault       user any       password any       remotename bluenet       ipparam bluenet       usepeerdns       novj       lcp-echo-interval 0      
To connect to internet, just do: pon bluenet and tail your logs.

npm run build base-href

Using NPM to specify base-href When building an Angular application, people usually use "ng" and pass arguments to that invocation. Typically, when wanting to hard code "base-href" in "index.html", one will issue: ng build --base-href='https://ngx.rktmb.org/foo' I used to build my angular apps through Bamboo or Jenkins and they have a "npm" plugin. I got the habit to build the application with "npm run build" before deploying it. But the development team once asked me to set the "--base-href='https://ngx.rktmb.org/foo'" parameter. npm run build --base-href='https://ngx.rktmb.org/foo did not set the base href in indext.html After looking for a while, I found https://github.com/angular/angular-cli/issues/13560 where it says: You need to use −− to pass arguments to npm scripts. This did the job! The command to issue is then: npm run build -- --base-href='https://ngx.rktmb.org/foo&

dockerfile multiline to file

Outputing a multiline string from Dockerfile I motsly use a Dockerfile by sourcing from a base ditribution: CentOS or Debian. But I also have a local mirror and would like to use it for packages installation. Espacially on CentOS it is about many lines to write to the /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo file. Easiest way: one RUN per line The first method that comes in mind is to issue one RUN per line to write. Here you are: RUN echo "[base] " > /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "name=CentOS-$releasever - Base " >> /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "baseurl=ftp://packages-infra.mg.rktmb.org/pub/centos/7/base-reposync-7 " >> /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "gpgcheck=0 &quo

Gnome VNC Grey Checkboxes

When setting up VNC server in Gnome, I get a grey screen (or a black one) and the checkboxes to "Accept clipboard from viewers", "Send clipboard to viewers", "Send primary selection to viewers". I'm setting up a VNC server on a Debian 10 machine that has Gnome environment. A zillion articles can be found on Internet, they have the same global path: Install Gnome and GDM Install TigerVNC Setup the VNC Server: password + startup Run the server Connect from the client One of them is this TeknoTut how-to I took inspiration from. The tutorial is good, but I needed to complete it with extra steps in order to make it work: If the current user has already a running Gnome session, I just get the "grey screen with the checkboxes". It is good to know that: The "grey screen" is due to the "xsetroot" command that can be seen in some howtos The checkboxes are due to the "vncconfig -iconic &" command
