The danger of '.desktop' files!

Posted 01-31-2017 at 12:36 PM by GazL (GazL's Gazette)

There was an interesting post on r/linux today outlining some of the insanity relating to the use of .desktop files on linux desktops. The information is nothing new -- it's been like this for years and is also why you'll pry my window-manager+xterm working environment from my cold dead hands -- but it's one of the clearest examples of the dangers I've seen on the subject.

PiFM sorta
Wanted to be able to send music to speakers outside the house say for a barbecue or whatever. Could use Blue tooth among other things, but I wanted something more secure and easier to generally implement. PiFM seemed to be an answer . With a RPi you can send an old fashion radio signal to a radio and the radio will play what is sent it. All you need is an up to date Raspian install on a Raspberry Pi with internet access. I used...
