DLNA server with 64 bit Ubuntu that works with Google TV

Posted 06-08-2011 at 06:22 PM by jkzfixme

I have tried quite a few DLNA server with my Google TV , and TVMobili seems to work the best for me. Due to the fact that I am running an AMD 64 bit processor I had to go a few small extra steps to get the streaming goodness.

First you need to download the latest greatest Debian based package by opening up a terminal and pasting the following.

Next you need to install getlibs which...

Oh Google how I <3 you ... and apparently you <3 me back. I just got my free Logitech Revue, compliments of the Google Developers contest. It couldn't have come at a more perfect time. I am in the midst of moving. While moving I dropped a huge box of technical books on my laptop and that sucker is fried like a meal at a truck stop. Ok, no worries I have a server, I can plug a monitor into and build a GUI ... plugged it in ... nothing. Changed the power supply ... nothing. Now both computers...

Moving ubuntu minimize, maximize, & close buttons on Ubuntu 10.04

Posted 05-15-2010 at 10:04 AM by jkzfixme

As I drink my scotch after a long day of golfing I ponder life's great philosophical questions, such as the direction that Linux is heading, and if the wife is going to yell at me for that new scotch stain on the couch.
