If you are facing issue where pip chooses python3 over python2.7, then you need to use the correct alternative. Follow the following steps:
- First install pip for python2 and python3
sudo zypper install python-pip python3-pip
- Choose the correct version
sudo update-alternatives --config pip
The following will be displayed
There are 2 choices for the alternative pip (providing /usr/bin/pip).
Selection Path Priority Status
* 0 /usr/bin/pip3.4 30 auto mode
1 /usr/bin/pip2.7 20 manual mode
2 /usr/bin/pip3.4 30 manual mode
Press enter to keep the current choice[*], or type selection number:
- Type 1 (option infront of pip2.7) and press Enter
Google pulled out its support from picasa for linux back in 2012. Picasa 3.9 works fine on wine but I was looking for something native to linux and found picapy. A small application written in python.
Steps to install:
- Download picapy from here
- Extract picapy and rename folder to picapy
- Download gdata from here
- Extract gdata
- Open terminal, go to gdata folder and type
sudo python setup.py install
- Go to picapy folder in terminal and type
sudo mkdir /usr/share/picapy;sudo cp -R * /usr/share/picapy; sudo cp img/* /usr/share/picapy;sudo cp picapy.svg /usr/share/pixmaps;sudo cp picapy.desktop /usr/share/applications;sudo cp picapy.desktop ~/Desktop;
All set. You can read how to use here
As explained in the previous post, I thought of writing a small program to allow me to type using adb shell.
I created a python single file application for this. Here is the code.
How to run:
This would open up the program which would display a message to select the adb
Click OK, which would display the Open dialog box where you would select the adb location
Finally, the message box will be displayed where you can type the message and send.
You can select adb later.
Here are the links I had open by the time I had completed the program:
