Projects & Hacks

DiY Somfy Blind Controls 2015/02/18 22:28 Andreas Böhler DiY Somfy Blind Controls My flat came preinstalled with Somfy window blinds and a remote controller. However, no wall switches were installed and no timers or any integration with a home automation system was present. As I recently purchased a MiCasaVerde VeraLite, I wanted to integrate the blinds into the system.
Linux on the D-Link DNS-320L 2015/02/18 22:37 Andreas Böhler Linux on the D-Link DNS-320L I recently purchased a D-Link DNS-320L, hoping that it would be similar enough to the DNS-320 to get Linux up and running.

It is designed for LG monitors and is currently only supported by LG's True Color Pro software. I bought such a device, even though I don't have a LG display. My initial thought was that the device was just another rebranded colorimeter - but it turned out it was wrong.
LT_Presentation 2016/01/27 14:11 Andreas Böhler LT_Presentation As a teacher and lecturer, I need to give talks and presentations quite often. Usually, I write my presentations in LaTeX and use a PDF viewer like Atril (Mate Document Viewer) to display the slides. A few months ago, I also bought a Logitech R400 wireless presenter as well as a Genius Ring Presenter and an ISY Presenter to control the presentation.

monitorDaemon 2017/11/22 20:31 Andreas Böhler monitorDaemon Another handy tool I wrote to ease my duties as teacher and lecturer. monitorDaemon automatically remembers display (monitor) positions based on the EDID of the display (only). Usage Start monitorDaemon, by default it sits in your system tray and does nothing. You need to click the symbol and enable
pydund - Pyhon dund replacement (PalmOS Bluetooth connectivity) 2018/12/04 19:06 Andreas Böhler pydund - Pyhon dund replacement (PalmOS Bluetooth connectivity) Years ago, when I was still at school, I bought a Palm Tungsten T3 PDA. A few days ago, I resurrected the device (i.e. replaced the battery and started using it again).
