  • Finals Over, Most Grades Out

    Posted on December 10th, 2007 wt8008 No comments

    On Friday, I signed up for the Computer Science Minor. My roommate helped me plan it out. After I come back from my co-op I hope to have only Senior Project and one Technical Elective (with lab) left for me to obtain my BSEE. I have four more courses to obtain the minor, the four core courses I taken all of them over a period of three years. I have five courses left, so I plan to take two in Fall 2008 (CPE 315, 357) and Winter 2009 (EE, CPE 316, 464) along with senor project both quarters. The next question is to make sure those classes are offered those quarters.

  • iPod Nano 3G Video (cont’d)

    Refer to my previous post for what I did for getting Amarok to work with the new Nano in Ubuntu. It basically requires the new libgpod 0.6.0, so you don’t need to mess with the SVN repo now. If your lucky you can get the deb package from Debian for it. There’s a mess of packages to figure out.

    For video support I cannot ever get Amarok to work with it. I know gtkpod can work with video. The issue I had was when I load the video onto the iPod with gtkpod, Amarok still is connected to my iPod, since I have Gnome to autostart Amarok when my iPod is connected. You must disconnect Amarok from the iPod, but Amarok uses kdeeject, so the changes from gtkpod aren’t saved. A trick was found using gnome-eject -t -d %d, but I cannot get that to properly work. My solution so far is to

    1. Disable Gnome from autostarting Amarok when my iPod is connected
    2. Use Amarok for my music transferring needs (as this is my main music player)
    3. Use gtkpod to transfer videos, with Amarok closed (or not connected to the iPod, so that the eject command in gtkpod or within Gnome can work properly)
