One customer, who was migrating from centos6 to ubuntu, brought it to my attention that pine was not present on ubuntu and alpine had an unworkable default configuration. I have fixed this not only on Ubuntu but on the rest of the shell servers as well.
The installation of x2goserver on zorin.eskimo.com is presently broken. Unlike other systems in which this occurred simply purging and re-installing did not fix. I am working on correcting this problem. In the meantime, if you need graphical access to this machine, use the web interface under web-apps on our website at https://www.eskimo.com/.
GoodVibes is now installed on mint.eskimo.com.
As with the other systems, x2go is required to use this or it can be accessed via the visual or terminal access in our Web Apps menu on our website.
In the process of installing this I found that the meson, gstreamer, and x2go applications and libraries were all broken on Mint and I fixed these issues.
GoodVibes is now on julinux.yellow-snow.net. To use it you need to connect with a graphical client that supports audio. I recommend X2Go from https://x2go.org/. X2Go is free and open source. It is available for Linux, Windows, and MacOS. If you use either Mate or Gnome Desktops, GoodVibes is available under the Internet -> Audio and Video menu.
As with debian and ubuntu, in the process of installing this I fixed some things missing from the meson build environment.
GoodVibes is also now installed on debian.eskimo.com. Using x2go (https://www.x2go.org/) with either Mate or Gnome Desktops, it is under Applications -> Sound and Video. Other desktops you’ll need to locate it yourself. You can also launch it from a terminal, as long as you somehow have X11 forwarded, as “goodvibes“.
GoodVibes is an Internet radio player that features a number of mostly French music stations. If you at all like French pop music, worth checking out (personally I’m a Superbus fan).
In the process of building GoodVibes on Debian, I upgraded meson from version 0.37 to version 0.51 because 0.37 lacked a necessary method in the gnome library.
I’ve installed GoodVibes, an internet radio player that allows you to listen to a number of mostly French speaking Internet radio stations on Ubuntu.eskimo.com. If you login with x2go (see https://x2go.org/ if you do not already have x2go installed on your computer, it is a graphical client that enables you to utilize a much broader portion of our online services), and use either gnome or mate desktops, then it is under the Applications -> Sound and Video menu.
In the process of getting this working I’ve also installed part of the missing gnome development environment so that is also more complete now.
The “eskimo.com” shell server will be down until sometime this evening. Please use an alternative such as “ubuntu.eskimo.com” in the interim. All your files and e-mail will be the same.
vps4, vps5, and vps6, debian, scientific, and ubuntu will be down for approximately 1/2 hour each , debian and ubuntu somewhat longer, the others somewhat less, for backups.
