家里有一台台式机,用着很爽。最近有需要到处使用电脑的需求,手头有一台老旧的macbook air,想来可以试试远程桌面。

NoMachine 的设置很简单,并支持Win/MacOS/Linux和各类手机(未尝试),开箱almost可用,有一些小问题,特此记录一下:

  1. 我的PC是 linux,又是使用的大屏幕,自动转换分辨率并不支持。
  2. 我用colemak,PC上的键盘是在固件level改的,而mac的nomachine client无法forward这个设定。

好在 NoMachine 支持 callback custom script,在 session start /disconnect / close 等可以唤醒。设置在 /usr/NX/etc/node.cfg,用 xrandr 来改分辨率,setxkbmap 设置 keyboard layout。


export XAUTHORITY=/home//.Xauthority
export DISPLAY=":0"

xrandr -d :0 --output HDMI-0 --dpi 144 --set audio off --mode 1920x1080 &> /tmp/f.log

setxkbmap us &>> /tmp/f.log

Traffic Throttling on Linux

I guess I should document this since I spent some time to get this to work.

In short, to rate limit a box to 30MB/s
tc qdisc add dev eth1 root tbf rate 30mbps burst 10kb latency 70ms mtu 100000

The reason why we set mtu to 10000 is because of this.

To delete this rule:
tc qdisc del dev eth1 root

And to view current setting:
tc -s qdisc ls dev eth1

Garmin 310XT sync w/ Linux

Thanks to pyusbGarmin-Forerunner-610-Extractor and GcpUploader, I am finally able to sync my Garmin 310XT watch with Garmin connect on my Linux box.

Garmin-Forerunner-610-Extractor downloads all the activity files from the watch, then calls callback scripts under $XDG_CONFIG_HOME(usually ~/.config)/garmin-extractor/scripts. In this case, it calls a script that uses gcpuploader to upload to Garmin Connect.

Don’t be fooled by the name, Garmin-Forerunner-610-Extractor actually supports a lot of Garmin devices that use ANT+:

  • Garmin Forerunner 60
  • Garmin Forerunner 405CX
  • Garmin Forerunner 310XT
  • Garmin Forerunner 610
  • Garmin Forerunner 910XT
  • Garmin FR70
  • Garmin Swim

Here is what I did (on Archlinux, other distro should be similar):

sudo pacman -S python2-pip #install pip for python2
sudo pip2 install pyusb --pre #need version newer than 1.0a2
sudo pip2 install GcpUploader #install GcpUploader

git clone [email protected]:Tigge/Garmin-Forerunner-610-Extractor.git
cd Garmin-Forerunner-610-Extractor

# since we run as root, so the config needs to be under /root
sudo cp scripts/ /root/.config/garmin-extractor/scripts
sudo chmod a+x /root/.config/garmin-extractor/scripts/

Also needs to change the path to gupload in the script:

gupload = "/usr/bin/"

Add garmin connect credentials in /root/.guploadrc


Finally, run to sync!

sudo python2

Bonus: I also find can sync between Garmin connect, Runkeeper, Strava, endomondo activities. One button push, sync all of them. Or for $2 a year, it can auto sync between accounts. Pretty good deal 🙂
