Installing and configuring ownCloud

ownCloud – Web application for synchronization, sharing and remote storage of data in the “cloud”.

Perform the installation of ownCloud for example in Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install owncloud

I noticed that in Ubuntu, at the time of installation I tested on Ubuntu 14.04.03 LTS, canceled the installation of ownCloud from the repository, so you can add a third party and install or update from it. We look at the sources https://software.opensuse.org/package/owncloud

On Ubuntu 14.04, for example, installation from a third-party repository is performed by the following commands:

sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/isv:/ownCloud:/community/xUbuntu_14.04/ /' >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/owncloud.list"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install owncloud

The next step is to open the web interface http://server/owncloud in the browser and create the login and password for the administrator account, as well as specify the type of database to store the settings, accounts and other information owncloud.
For better performance, it’s better to use the mysql database, for this we will install the MySQL server and create it:

sudo apt-get install mysql-server
mysql -u root -p
create database owncloud;
grant all privileges on owncloud.* to owncloud@localhost  identified by 'ПАРОЛЬ';
exit

To be able to upload large files into owncloud, you will need to edit /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini by changing the upload_max_filesize and post_max_size in it, for example to 2048mb.

Configuring printing in Firefox

To configure printing in Mozilla Firefox, open the settings menu on the right, select “Print “, in the preview window that appears, click the “ Options” button, in the next window that appears, put the tick “Compress to page width, and in the “Fields and headers and footers” tab, specify the required fields, in my case it was reduced to 1, because the checks were printed on a narrow tape of the thermal printer and standard Only a couple of characters fit in one line.

The second option is to type and open in the address bar:

about:config

Click “I take the risk!”
In the field “Search” type:

print_printer

Right-click on the desired printer and select “Reset.”

If this does not help, check the print settings in the printer properties, in the operating system control panel, and try printing in other browsers.

Configuring UPnP in MikroTik

UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) – universal automatic configuration of network devices, automatically opens ports for p2p applications, games, etc.

In the Winbox settings you can find the “IP” – “UPnP“.

To enable it, check Enabled.

Now you need to specify interfaces, click “Interfaces” and “Add New“.
We’ll add an external WAN port, usually ether1-gateway.
Add an internal port or bridge, such as a bridge.
This completes the configuration.

I’ll give an example of how this will look through the console:

ip upnp set enabled=yes
ip upnp interfaces add interface=ether1-gateway type=external
ip upnp interfaces add interface=bridge type=internal

How to record and watch the demo in Counter-Strike Global Offensive

To record a demo in CS:GO, you need to open the console with the ~ key during the game, it is near the Esc key.
If the console does not open, then it probably is disabled in the settings, open the game settings and select “Yes” where “Enable Developer Console (~)”.

Then, in the console window that opens, type the command (where NAME is any name of the demo):

record NAME

To stop demo recording in the console, type:

stop

The demo file will be saved to the directory with CS:GO, for example C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\NAME.dem, other demos should be placed in the same directory.

To view demos, you need to open the player, for this, in the console, type:

Or:

Or press the key combination Shift + F2.
Next, in the opened player, click “Load …” and select the demo.

During viewing, you can switch between players left/right keys, CTRL – opens the map, Spacebar will switch the camera to free flight mode.
