General :: Finding A Cross-platform 'Split' Utility?

Aug 10, 2010

I need to transfer a 4Gbyte file from my Linux netbook to a friends WinXP desktop. And I'd like to it with a usb flash drive, but it can't handle a file larger than 2Gbyte. A limitation due to the underlying FAT32 filesystem. But I don't wish to reformat my usb as ext3 either.

So I need to split my 4GByte file into smaller chunks. And the 'split' utility needs to be available on both Linux and the WinXP operating systems.

General :: Gstreamer To Convert DVD From The Command Line?

Jan 11, 2010

I'm having trouble finding information on using gstreamer to convert videos from the command line. I've seen examples to convert audio and know it's possible to convert video (Thoggen does this with gstreamer) but what would the command be to execute this? I assume it will use gst-launch but there are so many following switches that it gets confusing. I'm interested in converting a DVD to OGG (as Thoggen does). I ask this because Thoggen:

1) Doesn't remember my preferences (quality, picture size etc.)
2) Gives me a huge preview window that I do not need (while it is encoding)

I have huge text files with two fields, the first is a string the second is an integer. The files are sorted by the first field.

General :: Selecting A Font When Printing A Text File From The Command Line?

Jul 29, 2011

I don't understand why this is so difficult.In the old days, there was lpforms which allowed some formatting. CUPS did not see fit to implement this into it's lp package.cgi-...-cgi?lpforms+1In the old days, lpr allowed you to select a font in the command line with -1=fontname. CUPS did not see fit to implement this into it's lpr package.htmIn the old days, printers had fonts installed on them that you could access. Modern printers don't seem to have this. So now I still need to be able to select a font when I print certain text files from the command line but it seems this is impossible. I've been working with instances and lpoptions, which allows me to do a lot of other things I need like orientation and margins and even set the font size, but I still cannot choose a font other than the default.

General :: Run "make Xconfig" For Cross Platform?

Jun 15, 2010

I'm trying to run the kernel configurator for my embedded ARM platform (PXA310) but so far I can only get it to run for my build platform, an i386/32 machine. I've tried running "make ARCH=arch/arm/mach-PXA3xx xconfig" in various combinations, but the maker always complains that it can't find the target "arch/arm/mach-PXA3xx". Doesn't matter what order I put the arguments on the command line.

I also have CROSS-COMPILE defined in the environment correctly and can otherwise build for my embedded target. I just can't run the config tool; I need to enable USB On the Go.

Debian Programming :: Way To Create Cross-platform GUI Application

Oct 30, 2014

I'm looking for a way to create a cross-platform GUI application. The result must be able to run on linux, windows and OSX. And it must be a point-and-click GUI.For development I should be able to rely on Open-Source tools on linux only (that means no access to Windows or OSX)The target should be able to install the result relatively easily, that means any dependencies must be freely available, and the setup steps must be very minimal (probably means no installing development tools or running compilers)

My first thought was java, but the standard Swing GUI can look a bit ugly on some platforms. So I'm wondering if there's anything else. My next thought was C++/Qt, but I don't think I can cross-compile this from Debian for Windows or OSX, can I? Next I thought of python and PyQt, but it looks like PyQt isn't available for OSX. And finally I even thought of making some kind of web application running on a tiny web server of some kind, then accessing it with a native browser, but I'm pretty sure this doesn't meet the "easy to install" criteria. I'm finding this so tricky, do all the existing cross-platform applications use natively-compiled C++ for this? Or is there an obvious alternative that I'm overlooking?

Programming :: Cross-platform LAN File Exchange Program?

Sep 2, 2010

I recently faced a problem. At my college, I linked my laptop with my friend's laptop with an ad-hoc wifi network. I wanted to send him a file. I was running Ubuntu, and he was running XP. Unfortunately, I could not find an easy way to send him the file. Another problem I faced was when I wanted to transfer the contents of my hard disk to another computer. I had to install Filezilla server on the other computer, and upload the files from one computer to the other.

I feel that its a really cumbersome method of transferring files in the same network. Mobile phones have bluetooth, and a file can be sent to another mobile very easily without any fuss. Does anyone know whether any such program exists already? If not, I want to write such a program that will allow one user to add another user to a personal network, and send or recieve files and/or communicate in other ways. The only language I know is Python (self-taught). I was wondering what GUI framework to use. I've never written a GUI program before, and would like to hear your opinions. This will be a very basic program, and must be able to run on many platforms.

Programming :: What Cross-platform GUI Toolkit Can Work For Both Mac And Windows

Dec 27, 2009

I'm trying to persuade my classmate migrating to linux but they always fall back to windows when homeworks require creating GUI (graphical user interface) applications. Not only because C# and Window forms/WPF is so sissily easy to use. But some teachers only test homework on Window machine. I have tried pyGTK and wxPython but they have some flaws. wxPython seem a little bit messy with so many look-alike class name and it's ID based event binding is somewhat awkward. pyGTK seems nice and neat but it doesn't have Mac port yet.

Programming :: Maintain A Cross Platform SDL/OpenGL Project?

Feb 11, 2011

I have made a game for Linux and want to release it soon (on linux & windows). Since its SDL/OpenGL and I dont do any special things it shouldn't be much porting to windows. Problem: Maintaining I have the game in code::blocks SDL project on Linux. So I got wine and installed wined Code::Blocks with MingW so I can cross compile on Linux. For another game I made, I used a Makefile which has "if" statements to set up compile variables. And everything else is totally identical to windows & linux (code, source files and etc...)

With codeblocks I got used to not having to worry about makefiles and it did well and I better focused on making the game rather than everytime a new file is added editing the makefile and etc... Is there some nice ways to have a cross platform environment to make it easy to make games for Linux and windows. I'm thinking of making my own system of auto-generating a makefile (essentially upgrading the setup I have for my previous game to auto add entry's to the makefile & some other stuff).
