Run a script after running apt-get update on a Debian or Ubuntu Linux
alt
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d

If you want to run a script for example, after apt update on Debian, you can use the apt hook system. This is useful if you want to perform some other action after the update. In my case, I need to run a script and re-install the Vulkan driver on Raspberry Pi, because apt update break it and the system can't open the Desktop environment.

Umount & Clean your NTFS/exFAT partition from macOS using Python

My external hard drive with tons of 💩.

Sometimes I think I'm the one who has problems with the NTFS/exFAT partition on macOS. I have to unmount and clean it, because exFAT is the file system I use on a Raspberry Pi acting as NAS using the great DietPi OS.

How I migrated from PHP to Vuepress 2 (Part I)

This is the only use of AI you will see in this article. Generated by OpenAI's DALL-E and modified later.

It's been 3 years since my last post here. I have been busy with my work and other projects. The new focus I want to give to the blog is going to be a bit different. Less Raspberry Pi (I will tell why later) and more technical.

It seems unbelievable that it's been a year since my last post here, hello everyone, by the way. I'm not very active on social networks, except on Twitter, I really learn a lot from other people there or Discord where you can find me and chat with me inside the #pikiss-support channel.

Hello again!. My new routine is being to maintain a couple of projects and launch myself into the adventure of rising a start-up so it's now or never. On weekends I improve and add new scripts to PiKISS for you, but it gets tiring, really. Even after a morning of testing a script, I upload it and someone comments that something is wrong. Those of us who are of age know that not everyone has the same scenario when it comes to running your applications. In this case, some have Twister OS, others test it in other distros (not supported), others don't have the default pi user in the system, and that leads to more and more hours of testing (each script takes me about 4-5 hours in total, I'll tell you why on another post).

I had taken a few weeks off!. I've had a lot of work this week with PiKISS. I just missed being a trending topic on Twitter, ha ha. I thank all of you who have supported me, both financially in Paypal where I am receiving donations from users who have found the project very interesting, and those who have spread it through social networks. The article in the prestigious Tom's Hardware has also been an injection of desire to move forward. Now it's time to do my best and get out some new scripts, although there's a lot of old and obsolete code that I'd like to refactor and that gives me a little bit of shame, you know how demanding I am, so I don't get involved anymore. I leave you the links that I have collected this week that are interesting... Here we go!

GR-Lida, Front end for DOSBox, ScummVM on Raspberry Pi

gr-lida

In my search for a nice front end or interface to sort and categorize my abandonware games, I came across GR-Lida and found it very complete. It is based on Qt5 (hence the post from a few days ago) and I have compiled it for the Raspberry Pi. In case you want to do it, I leave you the binary and the instructions below...

Fix corrupt video files with ffmpeg

I have a video capture device, the kind that records the HDMI output to a flash drive, but maybe because it's not very good, sometimes the videos get corrupted and I can't use them in video editing applications...

Today I updated the blog with the news that are happening, and little by little they are getting together so I can comment them here. I'm also going to be a little busy with new projects, both professional and personal (you'll find out). So I won't make you wait any longer: take off your shoes, disinfect your hands and make yourself comfortable. Pi World begins!...

Qt 5.X on Raspberry Pi 4

QT5

What a nightmare week!. I've been trying to make progress on several fronts but I'm having a hard time with it. To top it all off, I'm having a hard time with the Qt and I'm trying to create a script to install it if we ever need to compile anything with these libraries, and it hasn't been easy to figure out the best way to do it.
