Mac TimeMachine drive on Samba share

First, create a Samba share on the easiest way. For example, mine:

  path = /mnt/data/backups/macbook-pro-14
  read only = no
  browseable = yes
  guest ok = no
  valid users = @ronhks
  force user = ronhks
  force group = ronhks

Open the macos app.

On it, create a new file drive image:

You can find it in the menu bar.

Create az Image, with these parameters:

Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
Image format: sparse disk image

Mount the created image.

Set the TimeMachine to use the mounted image:
sudo tmutil setdestination -a /Volumes/{network-drive}

oh-my-zsh p10k git branch name shortened

I use this and I experiened like this:

The branch name is shortened and can’t read.

So I have to change this line in `~/.p10k.zs` The line is AROUND at line 400 :

from: (( $#branch > 32 )) && branch[13,-13]="…" # <-- this line

to: (( $#branch > 40 )) && branch[20,-20]="…" # <-- this line.
It the branch name is over 40 char, It wil be cut from the 20th chat til the last 20 char.


Intellij IDEA Golang own package problem

I really like IDEA for developing.

I worked on a golang project and I organised my code into separate packages

The project built without problem in console (go build).

But, in IDEA I got this error:

$GOPATH/go.mod exists but should not

The solution is,

after the module support is turned on (IDEA/preferences/languages/go/Go modules : checkbox), it cannot exist with GOPATH, so just remove the project from GOPATH at IDEA/preferences/languages/go/GOPATH

Run MiniDLNA from docker

For reusage:

docker run -d \
-p 8200:8200 \
--restart=on-failure:3 \
--name minidlna \
-v /opt/minidlna/cache:/minidlna/cache \
-v /mnt/data/series:/media/series \
-v /mnt/data/movies:/media/movies \
-v /mnt/data/child:/media/child \
-v /mnt/data/torrent:/media/torrent \
-v /mnt/data/music:/media/music \
-v /mnt/data/pics:/media/pictures \
-e MINIDLNA_MEDIA_DIR_1=V,/media/series \
-e MINIDLNA_MEDIA_DIR_2=V,/media/movies \
-e MINIDLNA_MEDIA_DIR_3=V,/media/child \

Docker img ipv6 problem

On my host the ipv6 is disabled. I had to start a docker image, which would like to use ipv6.

This conflict provides this error message:

Error response from daemon: driver failed programming external connectivity on endpoint CONTAINER_NAME(HASH): Error starting userland proxy: listen tcp6 [::]:PORT_NUMBER: socket: address family not supported by protocol

The resolution, to define the IP address in port mapping (for DHCP, with global definition):

docker run -p

Or in docker-compose.yml like this:

version: "3.9"
    image: IMG
    container_name: CONTAINER_NAME
      - ""

Gentoo USB serial passthrough KVM

I have a Conbee II Zigbee receiver. After a restart the USB passthrought stopped working (on the guest VM I always get errors like:

usb 2-2: new low-speed USB device number 25 using uhci_hcd
usb 2-2: Invalid ep0 maxpacket: 64 usb
usb2-port2: unable to enumerate USB device

So I decided, passthrough the USB serial. It’s a little tricky 🙂

    <serial type='dev'>
      <source path='/dev/ttyACM0'/>
      <target type='isa-serial' port='1'>
        <model name='isa-serial'/>

The trick is the serial type because it is dev.

Unuable Remmina with squares as characters

I use Ubuntu 20.04 and sometime remmina makes me a joke….

If you start remmina, and you see like this:

remmina uses squares like on that pics

Try this:

rm -rf ~/.cache/fontconfig && sudo fc-cache -r -v

Acutally, it resolves me the problem.

Linux Desktop experiences


A long-long years ago (til 2007) I used linux as desktop (Gentoo exactly).

After, the windows 7 and the 10 also will be a very-very good PC OSs.

BUT I tried the Ubuntu 20.04, and it seems work wine from 1 month at my 2in1 PC with WWAN card (DELL 7390).

I would like to collect some useful programs which I found very userful, fast and maintined (actually).
