Signal messaging downloads

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/08/23

I forgot about the announcement that Signal had also become available on the Desktop, but it is via [WayBack] https://signal.org/download/:

  • Mac
  • Windows
  • Debian based x64 Linux:

$ curl -s https://updates.signal.org/desktop/apt/keys.asc | sudo apt-key add -
$ echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://updates.signal.org/desktop/apt xenial main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/signal-xenial.list
$ sudo apt update && sudo apt install signal-desktop

I like the mix of echo and tee to update the [WayBack] /etc/apt/sources.list.d folder with the signal-xenial.list file.

These links will always give you the latest download filename:

The files you get there will be relative to the path https://updates.signal.org/desktop/ so will be similar to:

You can get the sources at https://github.com/WhisperSystems/Signal-Desktop/releases

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/01/05

… simply hold the refresh button and then tap on Request Desktop Site. The page should refresh and you should be redirected to web.whatsapp.com and you should be looking at a QR code on the screen of your iPad.

If you know it’s “simply”.

Fix Apple TV No Sound Issue – AppleTV2

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/08/04

The first method I try for any Apple TV issue is to reset the device (Hold the Play & Menu button simultaneously on the remote for 6 seconds)

This usually works for me too and is easier/faster than fiddling with the solutions mentioned at Apple TV: HDMI audio stops working – Apple Support (which now has moved to Get help with audio, video, or power on Apple TV – Apple Support).

After releasing Play&Menu buttons, wait for the Apple TV to reboot itself and listen if your remote-buttons will give you audio-feedback from the Apple TV. If that works, then audio on multi-media works fine.

This is way cheaper than putting additional hardware in the HDMI chain as described in The fix for AppleTV HDMI audio and video woes and HDMI problem solving | The Poor Audiophile

In my setup the Apple TV 3rd generation is hooked up to a Harman Kardon BDS 580 receiver/blue-ray-player.
