3D-Fuel Pro PLA+ material profile for Cura LulzBot Edition / LulzBot Mini printer

For some reason, Cura LulzBot Edition does not include a material profile for Pro PLA+ by 3D-Fuel used on a LulzBot Mini printer.

Here are the settings that work for me: 3d-fuel-pro-pla.xml.fdm_material (2.85 mm).

Split a multi-object STL file into separate files containing each one object

slic3r --split input.stl
This will create input.stl_01.stl, input.stl_02.stl etc. in the same directory.

This worked perfectly for me on a file created with OpenSCAD containing different parts that I wanted to print individually with Cura Lulzbot Edition. I found the info here.

Find large files in a BackupPC transfer log (sort files in XferLOG by size)

When your backups suddenly takes much longer to complete, it could be because large files that were previously excluded from the backup were renamed or relocated elsewhere. In order to identify those files, or just to sort the list of files by size, I use the following code (bash):
cd /tmp/
BackupPC_zcat /var/lib/backuppc/pc/mypc/XferLOG.99.z > xlog
for S in `cat xlog | sed -e 's/^[^/]*\/[0-9]*[ ]*//' | cut -f1 -d\ | egrep '^[0-9]+$' | egrep '[0-9]{9,}' | sort -n | uniq ` ; do fgrep " $S " xlog ; done
This will show the list of files bigger than 99999999 bytes (100 MB). Remove "| egrep '[0-9]{9,}'" to just list all instead.

Note: on Debian, BackupPC_zcat is in /usr/share/backuppc/bin/. I've added a symlink in /usr/local/bin/ so that I don't need to look for it every time.

Configure Garmin Express to download files to a different partition

Short answer: you can't. Files (map data, firmware updates etc.) are always downloaded to %ProgramData%\Garmin\CoreService\Download (typically C:\ProgramData\Garmin\CoreService\Download)

The only solution I could find is to move that folder to another partition (make sure to completely exit Garmin Express first), then create a link to it:
c:>cd C:\ProgramData\Garmin\CoreService

c:\ProgramData\Garmin\CoreService>mklink /J Downloads "d:\Garmin.Downloads"
Junction created for Downloads <<===>> d:\Garmin.Downloads

c:\ProgramData\Garmin\CoreService>

Add HEIF support to Ubuntu Linux 18.04 (thumbnails / gimp) - preview and open HEIC files from iPhone directly in Ubuntu

Since Apple moved from JPEG to HEIF as default format about two years ago, there has been a lot of progress.

There is a very straightforward way to add minimal HEIC/HEIF support to Ubuntu:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:strukturag/libheif
sudo apt-get install heif-gdk-pixbuf heif-gimp-plugin heif-thumbnailer

That's it! You don't even need to logout or restart, the new functionality is available immediately.

More details here and here.
