Linux SoundConverter – Program Missing 16 kHz Sample Rate Fix

I recently was working on another project where by a program called Pocket Sphinx required sound files recorded in 16 kHz sample rate. My preferred Linux sound converter application at this time is most apropos called SoundConverter. This free and open source Linux SoundConverter program does not have 16 kHz available as a re-sample rate.

One possible solution was to use dconf editor to add the 16 kHz sample rate to this Linux SoundConverter program. However, I could not find any entries under /org for this program. I looked in all the available configuration files using dconf editor to no avail.

I decided to then search for this Linux SoundConverter program files by typing in the following command:

whereis soundconverter

This was the output from that Linux command:

whereis soundconverter
soundconverter: /usr/bin/soundconverter /usr/share/soundconverter /usr/share/man/man1/soundconverter.1.gz

I browsed to the /usr/share/soundconverter directory using this command:

cd /usr/share/soundconverter

I then listed all the files and folders in this directory by performing this command:

ls -al

Here is the output of the ls -al command:

ls -al
total 316
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Mar 12 01:02 .
drwxr-xr-x 332 root root 12288 Mar 12 21:49 ..
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Mar 12 00:36 python
-rw-r–r– 1 root root 135178 Mar 12 01:02 soundconverter.glade
-rw-r–r– 1 root root 24707 Sep 30 2018 soundconverter-logo.svg

You will want to notice the soundconverter.glade file. In Linux, all files including folders are basically files. What this means is that you can easily open them up in a text editor like vi.

VI is and has been my preferred command line editor in Linux for decades now. You do not have to use VI editor to edit this file. However, the command to edit the soundconverter.glade file is below:

vi soundconverter.glade

You will need to become root user as you will notice both user and group permissions for the soundconverter.glade file are owned by root. Glade files are actually eXtensible Markup Language files. Generally XML files are easily accessible with a standard text editor.

You may want to create a backup of this Linux SoundConverter program file just to become safe. I have incorporated the habit of always creating a backup file of any Linux files I edit, in case I make a mistake. It is certainly up to you to incorporate this possible safety measure or not.

You will notice in this soundconverter.glade file an array with these numbers:

  <column type="gchararray"/>
</columns>
<data>
  <row>
    <col id="0">8000</col>
  </row>
  <row>
    <col id="0">11025</col>
  </row>
    <row>
    <col id="0">22050</col>
  </row>
  <row>
    <col id="0">44100</col>
  </row>
  <row>
    <col id="0">48000</col>
  </row>
  <row>
    <col id="0">72000</col>
  </row>
  <row>
    <col id="0">96000</col>
  </row>
  <row>
    <col id="0">128000</col>
  </row>
</data>

You can open up SoundConverter. Then click on “Preferences”. Now look below under “Target bitrate: N/A”.

Place a check in the check box next to “Resample” drop down list. You will notice that 16000 and 32000 for that matter are missing. Now you want to create a new array for 16 kHZ which would be 16000 numerically.

Insert a new line and array using your editor of choice. You will want to enter in the following array:

<row><col id=”0″>16000</col></row>

This will create a new entry in that re-sample drown down list with 16000. Also, you can add any other re-sample rates that you might need, for example 32000. Now you can go into SoundConverter and select 16000 Hz.

Linux SoundConverter – Program Missing 16 kHz Sample Rate Fix Video Transcript

SJS Ronco need a in a computer comm or a
00:05
video about our day always working on a
00:08
project recently whereby I needed to
00:12
convert an audio file there is a free
00:17
Linux software program called
00:23
sound converter hence the term that
00:27
converts sound I’m saying however I
00:31
needed to convert sound into sixteen
00:35
thousand Hertz or sixteen small K large
00:41
H small Z and this program as you can
00:45
see on screen and I will show you I will
00:48
demonstrate does not have when you go
00:53
into preferences and then you’re going
00:56
to convert the file this project
01:03
requires that the file be and sixteen
01:05
thousand Hertz you know what I’m saying
01:09
16 kilohertz whatever now you go down
01:14
here there is sample rate and it’s
01:16
missing so you could you could cheat you
01:18
could convert it to eight thousand
01:21
eleven thousand twenty-five twenty two
01:23
thousand fifty forty four one hundred
01:25
forty eight hundred excuse me forty
01:28
eight thousand seventy two thousand
01:29
ninety six thousand one twenty eight
01:30
thousand so that’s a conundrum well I
01:34
went to the drawing board which is the
01:39
internet if you do not know something if
01:44
you’re ignorant or if you’re running or
01:46
problems internet search internet search
01:48
unless you’re like a you know programmer
01:51
and you’re a coder and you’re like oh
01:53
okay well I’ll just you know go to the
01:55
code alright
02:00
one solution was to use D conf editor
02:04
and let me find it D yep so let me open
02:10
it up and I’ll show you what deep
02:11
competitors really quickly so you’re
02:13
gonna get this warning you can you know
02:16
uncheck it but you know whatever so just
02:19
click I’ll be careful
02:21
now get D Kampf editor it is obviously
02:25
this is Linux and I haven’t titled the
02:27
video yet but well you actually my blog
02:29
post I already yeah Linux is in the blog
02:34
post title which will be the same title
02:36
of this video it just allows you to edit
02:41
certain application files now if you
02:46
notice you see apps see a desktop org it
02:49
was supposed to be under org but there
02:51
is nothing here as you can see there is
02:53
no sound converter there is blue man
02:56
free desktop known gtk on board X I went
02:59
through all these every single one every
03:02
subdirectory could not find a decomp
03:09
edible file so my predicament continued
03:15
then and then I was like well you know
03:18
what
03:18
I am NOT program but I am proficient
03:22
enough that I can use command line you
03:24
should definitely learn how to use
03:25
command line VI Emacs whatever the
03:29
it takes you know I’m saying on Linux
03:31
cuz you’re gonna run into problems Linux
03:33
is not perfect I know you have the
03:35
fanboys just like the wind
03:37
blows fan boys and girls in the Mac and
03:41
crap fan boys and girls Linux tards or
03:44
whatever the you want to call them
03:45
they claim Linux is the best thing since
03:47
you know the wheel and it’s like well
03:52
you know it’s not perfect now I’ve used
03:54
Linux for close to 20 years now maybe I
03:58
think the first time I actually ever use
04:00
Linux was in the mid-90s actually but I
04:03
kind of abandoned it until the early
04:06
2008 ways I digress
04:10
command line so what what I found was
04:13
that there is a Glade file glade GL ad
04:16
now this isn’t a dumbshit capitalistic
04:19
whorish stupid commercial for a
04:22
Glade the that goddamn you know
04:26
do you authorize or wear that
04:28
you spraying in the air
04:30
no Glade is actually an XML file type if
04:34
you know what XML is it’s edible very
04:39
easily edible okay so here is the
04:43
solution click on the link in the
04:45
description box below that will take you
04:46
to my blog post on my website unit
04:48
computers comm where I have the
04:49
instructions written in the abstract I
04:52
have all commands written out spelled
04:56
correctly
04:57
you know I have full instructions on how
05:00
to fix sound converter you’re gonna add
05:05
a entry into the program you’re actually
05:10
going to change the code you’re gonna
05:12
learn how to program a little bit you
05:14
know I’m saying you’re gonna add an
05:16
array is what you’re doing and then
05:20
you’ll be able to choose sixteen
05:21
thousand but I have full detail written
05:26
you know typed out instructions because
05:27
some people learn better that way or you
05:31
can also copy and paste the commands
05:32
alright so what we’re gonna do is we’re
05:34
gonna go to a command line
05:37
let me see if there’s anything I don’t
05:40
necessarily you always should be
05:41
security conscious you know what I’m
05:43
saying especially nowadays all right so
05:46
we’re at a Linux command line now the
05:48
first thing i typed in was where is
05:53
sound converter remember and I haven’t
05:58
do I have instructions on now now I
06:00
don’t think I had any instructions on
06:02
how to install Linux
06:03
Wow sound converter I mean I might’ve
06:05
but anyways so where is sound converter
06:11
there we go where is you might want to
06:14
learn where is that’s an excellent
06:17
command on Linux and UNIX actually it’ll
06:21
tell you it will even tell you where
06:23
configuration files are at it will tell
06:26
you where a program is at because in
06:29
linux everything is a sickly a file
06:31
everything even folders are editable you
06:34
know i’m saying so i want to use or
06:37
share so CD is change directory and then
06:42
I’m gonna go to / user / share / sound
06:45
converter it’s free Linux sound
06:49
converter program it’s excellent it’s
06:51
not about you know it doesn’t have every
06:53
Bell and whistle but you don’t need all
06:54
that notice I don’t now then you do an
06:58
LS – al now here’s a tip you do not have
07:01
to take this tip but it’s highly
07:03
recommended whenever I learned decades
07:06
ago on Linux because I was
07:08
around with config files and what I did
07:11
was I edited the original configuration
07:13
file and then I think it had to do with
07:15
networking and I had to reinstall Linux
07:18
cuz I over wrote it so here’s a bonus
07:21
added possible gold tip when it comes to
07:24
Linux and I would dare say any operating
07:29
system Mac and crap wind blows when
07:32
you’re editing system files any files
07:35
program configuration files create a
07:40
copy if you notice here I created sound
07:43
converter Glade bak you can name it
07:46
whatever you want a lot of times I name
07:49
them back or got save
07:51
back or just something you know I prefer
07:53
dot back because that tells me it’s a
07:55
backup but it whatever you want to you
07:59
know I’m saying and then you would you
08:01
would just do a CP you would do CP and
08:06
then the name of the file and then the
08:09
firt and then the second would be the
08:13
the destination so you’re gonna copy the
08:17
source sound converter dot Glade and
08:20
then space here copy sound converter
08:25
whoops I need to learn how to
08:28
goddamn type dot laid and whoops
08:32
and then sound converter dot blade blade
08:39
blade yeah I’m trying to
08:43
type too fast
08:44
I’m R I’m already getting bored with
08:46
this video I’m very honest I’m very
08:48
blunt if you’re offended by that I don’t
08:49
care you can kick rocks and go
08:51
somewhere else so that’s what you would
08:54
type to copy aren’t quickly now we’re
08:56
gonna edit on Linux there’s a default
08:58
editor command line on speaking command
09:02
line whatever it takes even if you have
09:04
to use you know a graphical user
09:06
interface but you should really probably
09:08
learn how to use command line and Linux
09:11
because when it comes to fixing issues
09:12
most times you’re gonna have to fix it
09:15
in a command line you’re I’m Sam so VI
09:17
has been around for decades actually
09:20
probably ever since Linux was first
09:23
developed and I’ve never used any other
09:25
editor I tried Emacs and I did not like
09:28
that you do not have to use VI my
09:30
blogpost with instructions I use VI that
09:35
certainly if you are more comfortable
09:36
with Emacs or there’s a VI m there which
09:40
is a more graphical VI version I think
09:43
just whatever it takes you know I’m
09:45
saying so you’re gonna do you’re gonna
09:47
open the file with the editor in Linux
09:50
you can just highlight and then middle
09:52
mouse click and then paste windows you
09:55
cannot do that mac and crap I don’t
09:57
think you can do that but I could be
09:59
wrong what Linux you just highlight
10:03
and then middle-click and bam it pastes
10:07
you don’t have to you know control-c
10:08
control-v or you don’t have to
10:10
right-click and select copy that you
10:13
know what I’m saying all right so we’re
10:15
gonna go into this file I already
10:17
created a backup and then we’re gonna
10:19
add an additional array so I have to I
10:22
think if I search slash in VI the four
10:25
slash is what you use to search and then
10:28
you type in after the slash what you’re
10:30
searching for so I think I’m gonna type
10:32
in eleven zero two five and it should
10:34
find that array here it is so and and
10:37
you want to make sure that you’re you
10:40
know got the correct code if you’re if
10:43
you this is how I learn to fix problems
10:46
and Linux I learn VI and then I learn to
10:50
look for configuration or files or study
10:53
errors PHP errors you can use an
10:57
internet search and then you know I’m
10:59
saying then if you are proficient enough
11:01
with the command line and an editor then
11:04
you can actually fix problems on your
11:06
own so you just have to be aware if you
11:09
if you’ve never been familiar with an
11:11
array of any type you know you can study
11:16
on your own look it up on the internet
11:18
you what you could do is probably in
11:21
type into a internet search gch array or
11:26
just an array it’s pretty
11:28
self-explanatory you know I’m saying so
11:31
what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna add an
11:33
array so I’m gonna place it right here
11:35
and so in VI you want to hit oh the
11:41
letter O to create another line and then
11:45
and it’s already going to insert but you
11:48
could escape and then type I to insert
11:50
so we’re gonna insert another row whoops
11:55
okay so I have to escape and then insert
11:59
all right so now okay so right here and
12:03
then you don’t have to but I’ve learned
12:06
that it’s probably a it’s productive to
12:10
keep your code clean however you want it
12:12
just because in case you have to go back
12:15
I think that most programmers probably
12:19
that’s why it’s coated in a certain way
12:21
you know I’m saying it’s up to you but
12:25
Linux spaces are ignored however once in
12:30
a while they can cause a problem that I
12:32
don’t want to digress about that so
12:34
we’re gonna create a row so Row is just
12:38
in the two brackets tells the operating
12:43
system to create a row a new row and
12:47
then we’re gonna add another column so
12:49
I’ll open tick and then column ID equals
12:54
and then you know zero and then in
12:59
parenthesis and then closing tick
13:02
16-thousand and then / the / tells it to
13:07
close that column and then we have to
13:10
add another entry here we have to close
13:13
the role you have to close these
13:15
variables I guess or I’m not a
13:17
programmer so that’s probably wrong
13:19
Burbage but it’s similar to HTML you got
13:24
a you got the opening and you got the
13:27
closing and you have to close with the
13:32
slash before you know what I’m saying
13:34
otherwise it’s not gonna look right now
13:39
I added it accidentally added an
13:40
additional row in VI you just type DD
13:43
twice or yeah two DS for delete and
13:48
they’re gone all right so then I’m gonna
13:51
escape again and then in VI editor to
13:54
save you type the parenthesis
13:57
excuse me the colon the colon you see
14:00
the colon now where the green cursor is
14:03
at and then WQ small a lot of times in
14:07
Linux it’s case sensitive so become
14:09
aware of that and VI it is there’s
14:11
there’s when you when you use VI and you
14:13
tell you type in a capital W you’re
14:16
telling it something different than a
14:18
lowercase W so W Q for write and then
14:22
quit or you wait another thing you could
14:25
do is you could just write
14:27
exclamation point exclamation point
14:29
tells it to write right now Lord Emma at
14:33
our own I knew this guard down program
14:35
fixed by tonight Aaron pronto movie
14:39
Laurent you could hit then hit enter and
14:44
bam it tells you right here sound career
14:47
Glade 26 50 lines blah blah blah blah 13
14:50
135 178 characters written as long as it
14:53
says written if it’s a if you get some
14:56
some permissions if its permissions
14:59
it’ll type it’ll respond in red telling
15:02
you that it wasn’t written or if you
15:06
didn’t type those characters correctly
15:07
you’ll get an error well I’m gonna write
15:10
quit so : BB small W small Q exclamation
15:15
point right now bitch
15:17
alright BAM it’s out now you what you
15:20
can do is when you learn is you can
15:23
double check you can double check your
15:24
work sometimes I still have to do that
15:27
and then forward slash and then 16000
15:30
BAM it’s there and that’s the only place
15:33
I had to place it you’re only adding one
15:36
array and a column and then it’s gonna
15:39
show up in that drop-down menu now I’m
15:44
gonna go to the program I probably have
15:45
to close it I could try but I doubt it
15:48
now go to the resample under the and I
15:52
have full instructions telling you you
15:55
know place a checkmark where every
15:57
sample is so that you can see the
15:59
drop-down full instructions you know I’m
16:02
saying and then click the drop down
16:04
arrow it’s not available because this
16:06
isn’t real time programs aren’t that
16:08
smart yet they probably never will be
16:11
but I well I could be wrong about that
16:12
so I’m gonna have to close sound
16:14
converter and I can show you my blog
16:16
post this is the blog post and let’s see
16:20
I gotta run I gotta run oh my god I’m at
16:22
16 minutes I gotta run I usually have a
16:23
15 minute you know quota 15 minute time
16:27
limit alright so a full blog post you
16:30
know blah blah where’s command and then
16:33
the output how do
16:36
where what folder to go the command LS –
16:38
a LCD to change directory LS the list
16:42
and then what the output should be I did
16:46
not include the copy instructions and
16:48
then VI to open the XML file Glade is
16:53
actually an extensible markup language
16:55
file it’s just a different type of XML
16:59
file but it is technically XML and then
17:01
the array that I noticed and then we
17:03
added a new row in the array we add in
17:07
an additional you know column or item or
17:10
whatever you want to call it in the
17:12
array and then now I’m gonna show you
17:15
let me transition real quick now let me
17:17
open sound converter free program open
17:21
source if I could find it that’s
17:25
what a search box is for think
17:29
dog computers are smarter than me
17:30
alright so now I have the program open
17:35
and there it is now we’re gonna go up to
17:37
preferences and then go down to the
17:39
resample and then hit the drop down and
17:42
there it is sixteen thousand see we
17:46
learn how to program we learn how to add
17:48
an array and which is a row and then a
17:51
column in the drop down array now you
17:54
would click close and then boom now with
17:58
my project I am ready to roll so that is
18:03
how you fix sixteen thousand you know
18:09
whatever 16 kilohertz missing from the
18:13
resample rate I’m not sure why sound
18:16
convertor didn’t include it 16,000 and I
18:20
would say 32 are probably standard but
18:23
eleven thousand 25 that’s it that’s a
18:26
common one actually I anyways I don’t
18:29
want to digress because I’m over my time
18:31
limit and then certainly if you need
18:34
32,000 you could you could add it in
18:37
there rate so you learn something and
18:39
that’s how with that’s kind of one
18:41
reason why I like Linux but but you know
18:44
caveat emptor linux is not like mac and
18:47
well mac and cry
18:48
does actually have bsd unix in it wind
18:52
blows I think wind blows might now have
18:55
some Linux in it or some I don’t
18:58
whatever Windows 10 it that could be
19:01
wrong about that whatever that is how I
19:06
learn back in the day so get comfortable
19:08
with VI you can fix your own issues if
19:12
you know if it’s otherwise you what you
19:16
would have had to have done is what find
19:19
another converter tool that has the
19:22
16,000 or 16 kilohertz available so in
19:27
closing my project which I probably
19:30
won’t get in well I’m still working on
19:32
it here I’ll just tell you what
19:34
the it is I’m trying to create
19:39
automated transcriptions of my videos
19:43
now not for the my YouTube channel did
19:48
you know that YouTube has an automatic
19:50
transcription every time you as a
19:52
YouTube content creator every time you
19:55
upload a video it automatically creates
19:57
it unless can you disable it yeah no no
19:59
anyways but I think by default it
20:01
creates a closed caption or a
20:04
transcription of your video if not
20:08
perfect I think it uses AI or unaware of
20:11
the or some kind of dictionary it’s
20:13
not perfect it’s not bad but it’s
20:16
certainly not perfect you know and
20:19
transcribing is much better obviously
20:21
however you have to pay money for that
20:23
now I’m not gonna tell you what website
20:26
but oh that’s right I was censored off
20:30
of YouTube because I had a different
20:32
YouTube channel where i spoke about
20:33
activism you know capitalism is stupid
20:37
it’s a control mechanism the
20:39
government’s out of control especially
20:41
recently with this fear-mongering with
20:43
this bullcrap
20:43
you know virus that anyways I don’t want
20:45
oh oh oh I better not talk about that I
20:48
better not criticize the system for that
20:50
because oh I’ll get my YouTube account
20:52
terminated tomorrow at midnight by Susan
20:54
Wojcicki and the rest of the crew here
20:56
I’m saying so I have a activism website
21:00
and I and I record videos however that
21:03
platform well I have to they do not
21:06
include a transcription of the video and
21:09
some of my videos are very likely even
21:11
this video that’s way too long now 21
21:13
minutes and Counting you know trying to
21:16
sit there transcribe it I don’t
21:18
have that time or you’d have to pay
21:20
somebody and some of the prices are like
21:23
you know pert they charge you per
21:24
letter or per word or
21:29
prefer sentence it’s like Jesus
21:33
Christ I’m already living in poverty as
21:36
a computer technician and you’re just
21:38
gonna bend me over further and sodomized
21:41
you me because I would just want a
21:43
goddamn transcription now I think maybe
21:47
decades down the road it’ll be much
21:50
better there’s some open there’s paid
21:52
services you can get paid software
21:55
that’s actually maybe maybe I don’t know
21:58
about the best but one of the decent
22:00
ones might be what it let me know any
22:05
good let me search it real quick I
22:07
support this once in a while but not as
22:09
much anymore Dre what is it
22:11
dragon naturallyspeaking is that what
22:14
it’s called yeah that one I heard yeah
22:19
Dragon NaturallySpeaking I still support
22:21
that one is by nuance yeah it’s a new
22:24
nuisance I mean it’s a nuance all right
22:25
and but that I think it I think it
22:30
requires Windows and it cost money so
22:33
I’m trying to find an open source I had
22:35
I was trying to install what is a CMU
22:39
Sphynx or pocket Sphinx which is
22:42
actually an automated transcription
22:45
recorder automated transcription
22:48
recorder what that would do is it would
22:52
open the video fault well it would
22:54
probably would have to be audio say get
22:56
it I had to take a video file convert it
22:59
to audio and then run it through the
23:02
transcriber however I ran into the
23:05
roadblock which was the the resample
23:09
rate when I converted the audio it had
23:13
being 16 kilohertz then I was like oh
23:18
and then as soon as I you know fixed it
23:21
in the program I reconverted that file
23:23
BAM
23:24
it no longer error but yeah I wanted
23:27
address about that I abandoned see Pacus
23:30
Sphynx because i couldn’t get it to work
23:34
yeah you have to have a dictionary you
23:38
got to have libraries and it’s just like
23:40
I just want a transcription of
23:46
my big mouth
23:48
adios

ONN Optical Mouse – Video Transcript

00:00

stas at ronconi day in a kabir comic for

00:05

video but our dear boy a mouse I was up

00:08

at Walmart in my location there’s not

00:12

much there’s not much selection and when

00:18

it comes to like electronics or computer

00:20

there is no micro center store so I was

00:22

there for an HDMI cable then it maybe

00:25

I’ll make a video about a lot of times

00:27

even if I buy small items if it’s

00:30

something new I’ll make a video I

00:32

generally don’t mind buying new products

00:34

especially computer expensive electron

00:36

taha you can go oh Craigslist and get

00:37

all kinds of stuff why the fuck would

00:40

you ever buy anything new but I was at

00:43

the Walmart and I noticed that they had

00:46

onn mice went in is a Walmart brand

00:51

I think it’s exclusive to their stores

00:54

and a lot of the items are manufactured

00:56

in China

00:57

I like their USB flash drives this

01:01

laptop down below here literally is off

01:06

of a USB flash drive this laptop doesn’t

01:09

have a hard drive I’m using the flash

01:10

drive to use Linux and I haven’t had a

01:13

problem alright so I paid 688 not

01:17

including tax for this mouse probably a

01:19

close to $7 including including tax it

01:23

came with the packaging it’s got you

01:27

know cardboard it’s got the brand on the

01:30

front here I’ll just quickly show you

01:31

I already open it up but you know

01:33

whatever

01:46

okay it came with a little optical mouse

01:49

product guide with the model number but

01:51

there’s on the back all’s it is is the

01:53

federal Communist Commission garbage and

01:55

so interference statement but there’s

01:59

nothing about the mouse

02:09

it does have a model number Oh and a-19

02:18

ho0 41 and then the mouse now it’s not

02:23

plugged in but I’m gonna plug it in on

02:26

this computer that I’m recording this

02:29

video this is a port 4 point 9 1 foot

02:33

cable it says on the box so that you

02:36

know it’s not the longest cable in the

02:39

world but it’s not too bad it’s a little

02:41

thin here I’ll show you on camera with

02:43

this is a generic Mouse almost there’s

02:45

no brand on it but eh whatever

03:16

okay so the cable is not very thick but

03:19

I think it’ll last so just something

03:22

very light it’s the light Mouse it’s got

03:24

three buttons and a scroll I already

03:26

showed you on screen it’s not plugged in

03:28

yet – just a standard almost the size of

03:32

I would say original equipment

03:34

manufacturer Dell very similar size to a

03:37

nor the Logitech so let me plug it in

03:40

and then I’m gonna demonstrate so this

03:43

was $7.00 Mouse brand new optical now a

03:46

lot of times I do get mice excuse me I

03:49

get used ones I’ll go to a thrift store

03:51

but this evening my old Logitech the

03:54

small ones I don’t really like him but

03:56

it was Wireless it was this Wireless

03:58

Logitech mouse that I’ve had a long time

04:00

it started to fuck up and I switched out

04:04

the battery it wasn’t that I even you

04:06

know blah blah disconnected the USB

04:10

receiver yeah it wasn’t that size like

04:13

you know what and then I did not want to

04:15

drive that far there’s a savers thrift

04:17

store close by there’s a used computer

04:19

store but they’re well close by now and

04:22

I did not want to wait till tomorrow so

04:24

and I needed to get a HDMI cable anyways

04:27

and so I went to the Walmart that wasn’t

04:30

that far away so alright so let me plug

04:34

it in

04:44

okay uh-oh you know it’s interfering now

04:50

I think okay I plugged it in and as you

04:55

can see on screen it’s powered on now

04:59

okay although I noticed my encoder as

05:03

soon as I plug in this mouse my encoder

05:10

progress indicators are no longer

05:12

working so but I think that I think this

05:14

video is still getting recorded all

05:16

right let me move along and now I’m

05:19

gonna just demonstrate the red lights on

05:21

I can’t really get it much closer

05:22

because of the computers way the fuck

05:24

over here but as you can see you can see

05:27

the red light

05:28

so it’s powered on it and then I’m gonna

05:30

use it it’s worked it’s working now so

05:32

let me demonstrate it with my own

05:34

website which I can’t let’s see

05:50

okay it’s working

06:25

[Music]

06:30

I’m back towards the end of the first

06:36

part of this video you saw me you know

06:38

at the file look on my face and typing

06:41

away when I plugged in this onn Mouse

06:45

optical mouse with a scroll it caused my

06:52

encoder the Sartre that I used to record

06:54

my YouTube videos

06:55

it caused number one the sound progress

07:00

indicators to quit working and then I

07:02

could not transition because I was going

07:05

to demonstrate the mouse so that’s what

07:07

I’m this will be the last part of the

07:08

video

07:09

and so mice to me are extremely

07:12

important because I’m a computer

07:13

technician a real-world technician and I

07:16

work every day learning mentally ill or

07:19

as his ass for betting my mental illness

07:21

helping supporting Americans and others

07:26

all you know other countries with their

07:29

information technology problems so Mouse

07:31

very important ergonomics price the way

07:35

it feels in your hand and the size and

07:37

then you know also the scroll now I like

07:41

it it’s working

07:42

let me demonstrate on my website and

07:46

here as you can see it works obviously

07:50

and I’m gonna scroll now it could be

07:52

Linux I’m using MX Linux with it which

07:55

is a debian derivation Linux and it’s

08:03

very slow although I do like the scroll

08:05

wheel you can feel it it’s slow but I

08:09

found out with MX Linux that I don’t

08:12

there’s some adjustments but very few

08:16

but there is a program that a file that

08:19

you can install a small program and you

08:21

can actually adjust the scroll but for

08:26

for now this is you know it’s usable

08:29

anything else as far as the mouse so let

08:32

me try and see before I could not

08:35

transition because as soon as I as soon

08:38

as I plugged in this mouse is brand new

08:40

I’m just making a video demos

08:43

I could not transition anymore that and

08:47

I even the keyboard shortcut and then

08:50

yeah but but the video was still

08:52

recording I had to go into a terminal PS

08:56

minus EF pipe grep OS excuse me my

09:00

encoder and then literally kill the

09:05

processes and then it finally stopped

09:07

recording shit I don’t know if I want to

09:09

demonstrate I’m on my desktop you know

09:12

what I’m saying but I guess I could

09:16

let’s see I got a let’s see do I still

09:20

have it I’m using a television for the

09:29

monitor that I actually am monitoring

09:32

the encoder and then I’ve got this other

09:34

24 inch monitor that isn’t the desktop

09:37

when you record videos for YouTube it is

09:40

probably highly productive that you use

09:43

2 monitors even if it’s a laptop monitor

09:46

for what whatever you’re going to screen

09:51

capture and then a second monitor for

09:53

your encoder it makes it much easier all

09:57

right so let me I have to hey it’s right

10:02

here okay so here’s my desktop this is

10:05

MX Linux and as you can see the mouse

10:07

works ok so I just want to show you and

10:10

it it works it’s a good it’s a good

10:14

Mouse it’s working pretty good so I just

10:16

want to show you that I can right-click

10:17

and then I can left-click and then I

10:20

already demonstrated the scrolling

10:23

although it is a bit slow but me I’ll go

10:27

back to my website and I’m scrolling I

10:31

am scrolling normal there is no speed

10:36

that’s not okay that’s as fast as I can

10:38

scroll now this is about normal yeah

10:42

that’s that that’s all

10:45

a little bit too slow because I don’t

10:48

know about you but when I’m out on the

10:50

internet and I have to support customers

10:52

there are these Americans especially

10:54

they’re very very very just uptight Oh

10:59

Oh the other day I got threatened with a

11:03

lawsuit this is the kind of fucking this

11:05

is overtime now although I will what how

11:08

many minutes now let’s see the first

11:09

part was about six minutes twelve six

11:13

foot ten about five minutes maybe a

11:15

little bit over time I got threatened

11:18

with a lawsuit although I don’t take a

11:20

serious these customers on the third

11:24

prior website where I earn supplemental

11:25

income helping people with their

11:27

information technology you probably most

11:29

a lot of they’re fucking assholes they

11:33

threaten you he said you got 24 hours or

11:38

I’m contacting my lawyer and and then he

11:41

asked who I was who are you and I was

11:43

like and I just typed that okay I

11:46

haven’t received a death threat yet on

11:48

this third player website but if I ever

11:50

do it will be public I’ve been cussed at

11:54

you know fuck you oh the last time I

11:58

always report on how I get treated oh

12:00

yeah information technology you get

12:02

treated like garbage

12:04

they could be racist or that maybe they

12:06

don’t I don’t know whatever their

12:08

problem is on this website you know the

12:10

pale skinned Europeans I mean about a

12:13

few weeks ago I had a client telling me

12:16

go fuck yourself

12:17

he was stingy I’m not gonna tell you the

12:21

exact price points but this website will

12:23

have kind of like I don’t know how to

12:27

describe it they will offer really cheap

12:31

low prices for information technology

12:35

services that really they could you know

12:38

could charge hundreds of dollars easily

12:41

but I think it’s just a tactic to get

12:43

also they upsell and they got you know

12:46

membership and I don’t want to go into

12:49

all that he wasn’t paying hardly

12:52

anything pennies on the dollar

12:55

he did not like the fact that he had to

12:58

pay for help and then he did love

13:03

emotional these goddamn Americans

13:06

Americans run off of emotions and they

13:10

refuse to use any logic even the males

13:14

the males are metrosexual bitches a lot

13:16

of them they’re worse than the some of

13:19

the females on this website although

13:21

some of the females just and they’re

13:24

very impatient well if you don’t if you

13:27

don’t have a a the help if you don’t

13:34

have a you know a white pages or if you

13:38

don’t have a novel is worth of help and

13:41

if you don’t get it to them and within

13:43

sight oh yes they can fire us and I can

13:45

fire them these motherfuckers are so

13:50

impatient that within a minute I’m not

13:53

making this shit up a couple minutes a

13:55

minute two minute BAM they fire you well

13:57

it doesn’t bother me anymore I don’t

13:58

care we can fire them too

14:00

which I do if they get abusive so within

14:07

the last couple of weeks I got eight go

14:08

fuck yourself well a few days ago I got

14:11

a I received a well I’m gonna sue you

14:15

first this motherfucker threatened to

14:17

sue the company I’m working for I’m like

14:19

well I’m an independent contractor and

14:21

they even have a disclaimer basically

14:25

telling the clients that they are not

14:28

gonna be able to that this company is

14:31

not responsible for anything that I talk

14:35

about or any kind of advice or any kind

14:37

of tips or any kind of instructions and

14:40

so however I don’t cave in to the

14:43

fear-mongering false evidence appearing

14:45

real

14:45

then the motherfucker came back and he

14:47

said well you got 24 hours I’m gonna sue

14:50

your company and I’m gonna sue you and

14:52

then they asked who are you and well duh

14:54

I’m not a dumbass I’m not gonna and so

14:57

there I just typed in okay now what else

15:00

with him in the last few yeah so I got

15:03

threatened with that oh there they get

15:05

very impatient

15:07

and so you know anyways now a little bit

15:11

over time as far as mice goes they can

15:15

be very important because obviously you

15:18

have to use a mouse unless it’s a laptop

15:22

and it’s got a built in what’s called as

15:24

the nipple or the little nipple mouse or

15:27

the the track pad

15:29

oh I hate track pads the oh I love IBM

15:34

Lenovo’s nipple mouse as I refer to it

15:37

you know the little Adele also has

15:40

something so Dells yeah there yeah Dells

15:43

aren’t bad either but I don’t know the

15:44

IBM the red little mouse the thimble

15:49

point Mouse up in the keyboard I love

15:53

them

15:54

their track pads no I’ve never liked a

15:57

track pad Mouse ever on any laptop ever

16:00

even on a Mac Mac and crap computer I

16:02

just fucking hate them the the track the

16:08

those old school mice anyways I don’t

16:14

want to digress too much I’m very

16:16

particular when it comes to – because

16:19

you got these impatient mother fucking

16:21

cockroach Americans that they they they

16:24

want you to fix their computer or

16:28

quagmire and if you don’t respond within

16:31

seconds and and you better you better be

16:34

correct the first time and oh my god if

16:36

they have to pay any money for it that’s

16:38

a big issue on this website

16:40

the Americans are bitches they’re

16:42

literally wine they want they complain

16:45

Americans complaints they’re not paying

16:48

hardly it very little pennies on the

16:50

dollar if I admitted how much I earned

16:55

to support you motherfuckers you’d

16:57

probably laugh at me you or you’d be

17:00

like wondering what the Ferren what the

17:02

fuck you’re a moron or it’s your fault

17:05

or well you you know well you deserve it

17:08

or just shut up or just quit however I

17:12

supplement my income and I don’t have to

17:15

drive in anywhere I don’t have to sit in

17:17

a cubicle

17:18

I get to work wherever I want basically

17:21

as long as I have you know decent

17:23

internet access but our mouse is

17:25

extremely important

17:27

now here’s my litmus test with mice and

17:28

I’ve noticed over the years it really

17:30

doesn’t necessarily matter how much you

17:33

pay although sometimes you do pay you do

17:36

get what you pay for or sometimes you

17:38

don’t my litmus test is a mouse on knock

17:43

on wood that lawsuit will probably go

17:46

through and you’ll never hear from me

17:47

again because fuck you motherfuckers do

17:54

you think you think I was born yesterday

17:55

you think I’m gonna cave in now I talked

17:59

about this before quickly I investigated

18:02

this third party billion-dollar fascist

18:04

crooked criminal corporation that I earn

18:08

income on and there are more than one

18:12

accusations that the CEO of the founder

18:16

the founder of this corporation is one

18:18

of the trolls I think there are trolls

18:20

on this it’s either the moderators

18:23

employees or the executives or the

18:28

founder I’m not making this shit up

18:30

there’s more than one accusation that

18:33

it’s an inside job there are the trolls

18:36

or it could be other technicians I’ve

18:38

read about that too then are greedy and

18:41

when I’ve been on this website for like

18:44

ten years however if I quit for a while

18:47

cuz anyways they rebranded the dumb

18:50

mistake I don’t know some of these

18:53

corporations are the people that run

18:56

these are very arrogant fucking morons

18:59

rebranded themselves and then literally

19:01

overnight when they transition to the

19:02

new website with a different brand an

19:04

entirely different name I mean there was

19:07

nothing I was like are you fucking nuts

19:11

it was like very few you know requests

19:16

to work on and I mean the money just and

19:20

I was like I was like I’m not getting

19:22

the fuck out of here well a few years

19:26

later they corrected that mistake and

19:28

they went to their old brand but I

19:30

didn’t know about

19:31

and I needed money at that well I’m

19:33

always needing money because you know

19:35

the system requires it but at that time

19:37

I decided I was wondering what happened

19:39

to those knuckleheads that fucking made

19:41

the dumbest shit mistake of rebranding

19:43

and then literally overnight no traffic

19:47

no money just homelessness and poverty

19:51

in alcoholism in you have to wonder

19:56

these knuckleheads that fucking our

19:58

executives and these billion-dollar

20:00

crooked criminal corporations anyways I

20:07

went back recently and they changed how

20:09

you earn income but still you know just

20:15

Wow

20:19

anyways this is a noisy fan I’m getting

20:22

distracted by the fan I gotta run mega

20:23

run so mines very important oh it’s not

20:27

always you don’t always get what you pay

20:29

for and you can buy a real expensive

20:32

mice but the my litmus test of a mouse a

20:35

good Mouse versus a average or terrible

20:38

Mouse is what knock on what this is a

20:42

countertop probably synthetic wood that

20:45

you would find in a hotel motel

20:47

maybe apartments or a Kieth type

20:51

furniture very flat I don’t have a

20:54

mousepad

20:55

that’s another litmus test does the

20:57

mouse we’re good without a mousepad that

20:59

it that’s a you know what I’m saying

21:00

very this is excellent I’m right now

21:04

like literally it is very smooth

21:07

it’s excellent there I’m saying even up

21:11

as I can just it’s not perfect oh come

21:17

on now as I say that it’s not perfect

21:20

but it’s very workable I don’t have to

21:24

buy a mousepad

21:25

its optical but not all optical mice are

21:28

the same some you have to have a

21:30

mousepad another litmus test is try it

21:33

on carpet I’m not making this up or try

21:35

it on a couch cushion or a bedspread it

21:38

should be flat but a good working mouse

21:42

with good optics will work on carpet

21:47

because I’ve trust me I know it will

21:50

work on a sofa or the you know the

21:54

cushions on a sofa and it will work on a

21:58

bedspread a really good Mouse doesn’t

22:02

matter what you pay the OP the optical

22:05

mice will work some are horrible on

22:09

anything that is not a mousepad

22:12

whereas I love mice like the I haven’t

22:15

tested this yet on carpet or cushion or

22:19

bedspread but I probably will later and

22:22

you know maybe I’ll think about it but

22:24

probably not but on the counter its

22:27

excellent so far it’s better than that

22:29

all

22:33

logitech wireless mouse i can already

22:36

tell

22:36

now that Mouse is pretty old I don’t

22:39

know if the optics degrade after time I

22:43

don’t know if you you might have to

22:44

clean the surface but this is very

22:47

smooth excellent like I can even show

22:50

the I know this is a mouse video but

22:53

very important because this is how you

22:55

control a computer you know what I’m

22:57

saying and a keyboard is important too

22:59

and the ergonomics hours I’m trying to

23:07

is it there

23:14

oh I almost had it I almost had it and

23:17

then I gotta run I gotta run I did throw

23:19

in some overtime there we go so oh look

23:23

look can you see how fast that is

23:25

that’s as fast I mean it’s excellent

23:29

no mousepad $7.00 optical mouse onn

23:33

Walmart up and down it’s great dude now

23:36

the scroll isn’t the best but you know

23:39

yeah I need to adjust the settings now

23:42

the scroll to me is also it’s got two

23:45

buttons they seem what yeah it seems

23:49

pretty good the scroll some scroll

23:53

wheels you can’t you know what I’m

23:55

saying you don’t know it’s kind of hard

23:57

to explain they scroll really easily

24:00

real loose other ones are thicker

24:04

heavier feeling and they scroll I don’t

24:08

know how to explain it this one is kind

24:10

of in the middle like like you can like

24:12

literally feel the scroll in on my

24:15

finger and you can kind of feel it

24:19

rotating I kind of like that but it’s

24:22

slower but I think it’s in the settings

24:24

some mice the one the lenovo mice the

24:29

original equipment manufacturer their

24:31

scroll the scrolls are real small real

24:35

light and they just been real real fast

24:37

and I don’t necessarily like that

24:39

because I kind of like to feel this

24:41

though scroll these are just my

24:43

preferences is just subjective yours is

24:46

probably different and it should be

24:48

because you know you know what I’m

24:50

saying but me a very important mouse and

24:53

keyboard the dell original equipment

24:56

manufacturers I love those mice the ones

25:01

love them you can get them at thrift

25:02

stores three to five dollars used well

25:05

duh it’s a thrift store the scroll

25:08

wheels are larger and you can feel them

25:11

scroll you can feel it same thing with

25:14

Logitech the the IBM the small

25:16

lightweight smaller optical om or is it

25:22

a liquid mask fracture of my site I

25:24

don’t really

25:25

them that much they’re a lot they’re

25:26

lighter they’re very lightweight like

25:28

this one but they’re not as big and that

25:30

the scroll is just it’s a small scroll

25:32

wheel and assistance pins I don’t know

25:37

25:39

make an about another mouse this it’s a

Cinelerra GG – Not Launching After Installation Fix

Another computer problem in the world order. This time it dealt with a free and open source application called Cinelerra GG, that I installed on MX Linux. Cinelerra allows you to edit video, create videos, create video documentaries, etc.

I installed Cinelerra on a quad core desktop computer with MX Linux distribution. However, the first time I tried launching this application from the program menu, nothing happened. Further investigation of mine did not lead to a solution.

I tried launching Cinelerra GG via the command line with this simple command:

cin

Cinelerra still would not open. However, by running it in a command line terminal, an error message was displayed on screen. The file libva-drm.so.1 was missing.

I tried installing this missing library file with the following command:

apt-get install libva-drm.so.1

Unfortunately, apt-get could not find this file. This type of fiasco is nothing new in Linux. Especially, if you use a derivation Linux distribution like MX Linux.

MX Linux is a Debian derivation distribution based on Debian Linux. It by no means is exactly the same as Debian, Ubuntu, etc. I could not find this exact Linux library file in any Internet searches.

Finally, I used rpmfind.net and found the correct library file. However, it was named differently. The correct Linux library file to install is:

libva-drm1

The correct command to run is:

apt-get install libva-drm1

This library file successfully installed without adding any additional repository. Cinelerra then successfully launched. These instructions were written for MX Linux 18.3 installed on a quad core computer. However, you can use these instructions as a basis point for other possible Linux distributions.

Initially, I had to enable the IGN cinelerra-gg.org repository in MX Linux, in order to install Cinelerra GG program. These are the types of problems that can arise when using a non standard so to speak Linux distribution.

Office 365 For Mac Download

I received another computer related question on a third party website whereby I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. The question is quoted verbatim below.

Having issues with downloading Office 365 for MacBook Pro.

This individual owned an Apple Macintosh computer with Apple Macintosh operating system Mojave 10.14.2 installed. They were trying to upgrade their version of Microsoft Office Excel. They stipulated they were using an older version of Microsoft Office Excel.

They were trying to download and install a newer version of Microsoft Office Excel from the Apple iTunes store. They were having some kind of authentication issue with their Microsoft IDentification. They were not able to install or use Microsoft Office Excel on their Macintosh computer.

I asked if they had tried downloading and installing Microsoft Office Excel from the official Microsoft Office website, which is Office.com. They claimed that they had not. Yes, normally you are supposed to install it from https://office.com.

You wan to log in with a Hotmail, Outlook.com, MSN.com, Skype, etc. account. You will then be able download and install from this site. This individual was able to successfully download and install Microsoft Office Excel from Office.com.

When in doubt always try to download and install software from the original developer’s website. There could be many reasons why it will fail from third party websites. These instructions were written for an Apple Macintosh computer with Apple Macintosh operating system Mojave 10.14.2 installed.

You could certainly use this tip to install Microsoft Office suite and not just Microsoft Excel onto a computer(s) with Microsoft Windows operating system. When in doubt, go directly to Microsoft in this instance.

0:00:24.550,0:00:29.740
really quick video I promise this time

0:00:27.820,0:00:30.370
let’s cut to the chase so I don’t talk

0:00:29.740,0:00:33.280
too much

0:00:30.370,0:00:37.150
oh that’s right if you talk too much on

0:00:33.280,0:00:40.450
YouTube you get censored having issues

0:00:37.150,0:00:44.580
with downloading office 365 for MacBook

0:00:40.450,0:00:49.450
Pro and then this individual was using

0:00:44.580,0:00:55.420
Macintosh operating system Mohave which

0:00:49.450,0:00:58.000
is 10.14 they claimed that they had a

0:00:55.420,0:01:00.309
much older version of Excel and then

0:00:58.000,0:01:03.120
they needed the newest version I am not

0:01:00.309,0:01:06.159
sure what version they didn’t stipulate

0:01:03.120,0:01:08.440
they went into the App Store which is

0:01:06.159,0:01:11.800
also known as the apple application

0:01:08.440,0:01:15.159
store and they tried to download it from

0:01:11.800,0:01:17.740
there it’s been I’m trying to think I’ve

taught my head it’s been a few years I

0:01:17.740,0:01:25.620
think since you’re able to download

0:01:20.970,0:01:31.150
Microsoft Office from the Apple

0:01:25.620,0:01:34.690
application store they spoke with our

0:01:31.150,0:01:38.110
apple customer care and they think that

0:01:34.690,0:01:44.080
it was a problem with their Microsoft

0:01:38.110,0:01:47.530
identification they’re not able to

0:01:44.080,0:01:52.090
access office 365 even though it shows

0:01:47.530,0:01:54.550
that they already downloaded Excel mmm

0:01:52.090,0:01:56.470
anyways so I will give you the answer

0:01:54.550,0:01:58.270
right now I might have a little bit over

0:01:56.470,0:02:01.050
time but I don’t now this is a really

0:01:58.270,0:02:05.200
short should be a really short video

0:02:01.050,0:02:07.960
here is the answer you should download

0:02:05.200,0:02:10.840
even even for Macintosh even for

0:02:07.960,0:02:13.420
Macintosh even for Apple Mac and crap I

0:02:10.840,0:02:17.080
mean excuse me Macintosh you should

0:02:13.420,0:02:19.830
always download Microsoft Office from

0:02:17.080,0:02:19.830
office.com

0:02:19.890,0:02:28.030
when here’s a tip when in doubt always

0:02:24.580,0:02:30.310
go directly to the source

0:02:28.030,0:02:31.000
always always always always don’t fuck

0:02:30.310,0:02:34.660
around

0:02:31.000,0:02:36.730
third party or well you know Apple has

0:02:42.280,0:02:45.730
source

0:02:42.790,0:02:48.310
when in doubt and that might be a good I

0:02:45.730,0:02:50.230
don’t tell people what to do because I’m

0:02:48.310,0:02:51.010
basically anarchist and that would be an

0:02:50.230,0:02:55.720
you know

0:02:51.010,0:02:58.240
hypocritical it could be a good idea to

0:02:55.720,0:03:01.000
use that type of logical thinking when

0:02:58.240,0:03:01.900
it comes to computers and software and

0:03:01.000,0:03:03.550
blah blah blah

0:03:01.900,0:03:06.520
just quit fucking around with

0:03:03.550,0:03:09.220
third-party websites or you know you

0:03:06.520,0:03:11.680
heard from a rumor that you can now go

0:03:09.220,0:03:14.290
directly to the source always anything

0:03:11.680,0:03:18.400
further that is what fix this issue they

0:03:14.290,0:03:26.110
were able to download office 365 from

0:03:18.400,0:03:28.360
office.com and then they were able to

0:03:26.110,0:03:32.500
use it on their Mac and crap I mean

0:03:28.360,0:03:39.100
Macintosh Mohave 10.14 dot – let me see

0:03:32.500,0:03:41.500
if there’s anything else in here yeah

0:03:39.100,0:03:43.209
according now I could be wrong and I

0:03:41.500,0:03:45.190
don’t care if I’m wrong I like to remain

0:03:43.209,0:03:48.070
accurate bet on I’m not a youtube

0:03:45.190,0:03:50.019
Technology she’ll I don’t act like I

0:03:48.070,0:03:51.610
know where everything I make mistakes

0:03:50.019,0:03:53.200
I’m not perfect and I admit when I’m

0:03:51.610,0:03:55.450
wrong and quite frankly I don’t fucking

0:03:53.200,0:03:58.690
care if I’m wrong I think probably

0:03:55.450,0:04:00.970
you’re supposed to install Microsoft

0:03:58.690,0:04:05.430
Office from ops comm although now you

0:04:00.970,0:04:10.060
can install it from the Macintosh

0:04:05.430,0:04:12.160
application store however I don’t know

0:04:10.060,0:04:14.019
all the details and that’s probably top

0:04:12.160,0:04:17.140
secret because everything in America is

0:04:14.019,0:04:19.810
secret oh I’m not even gonna talk about

0:04:17.140,0:04:22.740
what’s going on with Iran the United

0:04:19.810,0:04:26.850
States government military lying again

0:04:22.740,0:04:30.009
trying to based off a lies enter another

0:04:26.850,0:04:32.229
not a war an invasion and

0:04:30.009,0:04:34.240
you know anyways well if I start talking

0:04:32.229,0:04:37.990
like about that or I’ll definitely get

0:04:34.240,0:04:40.210
censored off of youtube anyways when it

0:04:37.990,0:04:44.830
comes I don’t know all the details it

0:04:40.210,0:04:45.909
could be how is it configured and this

0:04:44.830,0:04:48.779
is over time I were to give you the

0:04:45.909,0:04:51.879
answer office.com you can login with any

0:04:48.779,0:04:54.279
Microsoft identification that is a bit

0:04:51.879,0:04:56.710
confusing um almost everything becomes

0:04:54.279,0:05:00.309
confusing I can’t help but think that’s

0:04:56.710,0:05:01.839
by design or very at the very least very

0:05:00.309,0:05:03.580
incompetent from these billion dollar

0:05:01.839,0:05:06.969
fascist crooked criminal corporations

0:05:03.580,0:05:09.460
it’s very confusing woody what a

0:05:06.969,0:05:12.580
Microsoft identification is Microsoft ID

0:05:09.460,0:05:18.089
I’ll go into that last but ok so quickly

0:05:12.580,0:05:20.649
I don’t know if the Macintosh

0:05:18.089,0:05:23.379
application store do they have their own

0:05:20.649,0:05:25.809
version of Microsoft Office that is

0:05:23.379,0:05:27.909
legal that Microsoft gave access to

0:05:25.809,0:05:29.979
where are the servers are they using a

0:05:27.909,0:05:35.529
content delivery network do they have

0:05:29.979,0:05:38.259
their own legal copy of office 365 on

0:05:35.529,0:05:40.059
their own servers was that is it a

0:05:38.259,0:05:43.330
server problem on their end is it the

0:05:40.059,0:05:46.870
link now with the application store from

0:05:43.330,0:05:49.419
from Macintosh you can even use iTunes

0:05:46.870,0:05:52.990
although iTunes is being retired but I’m

0:05:49.419,0:05:59.139
just saying is it or does the software

0:05:52.990,0:06:01.899
still live on office.com which is

0:05:59.139,0:06:03.249
Microsoft servers do they use I’m

0:06:01.899,0:06:07.089
assuming they use a content delivery

0:06:03.249,0:06:11.860
network is it does it get corrupt or is

0:06:07.089,0:06:14.949
it a problem with the authentication so

0:06:11.860,0:06:18.189
there could be very many variables I

0:06:14.949,0:06:20.979
just don’t fucking know but my job is to

0:06:18.189,0:06:26.129
be a lower level bitch and solve

0:06:20.979,0:06:26.129
computer problems and continue to

0:06:28.870,0:06:37.340
try to survive mental illness alright

0:06:32.540,0:06:39.920
anything else over time and they never

0:06:37.340,0:06:41.720
responded but I would compensation so

0:06:39.920,0:06:43.730

0:08:10.970,0:08:14.750

could help you should I go through the

0:08:16.550,0:08:22.730
tips really quick yes when it comes to

0:08:18.710,0:08:27.070
office.com tip number one do not throw

0:08:22.730,0:08:30.380
away the postcard you can buy office

0:08:27.070,0:08:31.880
like at retail or online and I think

0:08:30.380,0:08:34.070
they just give you a little postcard

0:08:31.880,0:08:36.830
well however it has your license key I

0:08:34.070,0:08:38.419
think is 25 characters or it’s a

0:08:36.830,0:08:40.850
scratch-off I’ve seen them

0:08:38.419,0:08:48.380
it you scratch off and underneath

0:08:40.850,0:08:52.610
is your you know number for your lottery

0:08:48.380,0:08:57.410
that’s rigged I mean no don’t throw away

0:08:52.610,0:09:01.250
your postcard never throw away your

0:08:57.410,0:09:05.870
license key do not let’s repeat it three

0:09:01.250,0:09:06.950
times do not lose your license key do

0:09:05.870,0:09:08.330
not lose your license key

0:09:06.950,0:09:12.140
do not ever lose it you’re like

0:09:08.330,0:09:14.930
Microsoft license key don’t it’s very

0:09:12.140,0:09:18.170
bad that that’s who cares about the

0:09:14.930,0:09:22.280
postcard if you ordered a CD with office

0:09:18.170,0:09:23.930
365 that’s worthless the license key is

0:09:22.280,0:09:25.760
where the money’s at

0:09:23.930,0:09:27.590
if you lose it Microsoft they don’t

0:09:25.760,0:09:29.150
fucking care actually they want you to

0:09:27.590,0:09:31.250
lose the license key because then you’re

0:09:29.150,0:09:34.700
gonna have to purchase either another

0:09:31.250,0:09:37.160
subscription if it’s office 365 or if

0:09:34.700,0:09:39.680
it’s a the full version of Office like

0:09:37.160,0:09:42.590
let’s say office 2019 you’d have to buy

0:09:39.680,0:09:44.870
an entirely brand-new license never lose

0:09:42.590,0:09:50.420

0:09:56.780,0:10:00.980

0:09:58.790,0:10:02.870
monthly I think you can pay quarterly I

0:10:00.980,0:10:04.490
think you could pay yearly I could be

0:10:02.870,0:10:07.700
wrong but at the very least you pay

0:10:04.490,0:10:11.120
monthly it still requires a license key

0:10:07.700,0:10:19.070

0:14:07.799,0:14:12.119
install it on five total devices five or

0:14:10.559,0:14:15.059
six I could be wrong but I’m pretty sure

0:14:12.119,0:14:17.939
it’s it’s five the full version of

0:14:15.059,0:14:20.699
office like office 2019 it’s only one

0:14:17.939,0:14:24.179
device I’m giving you a lot of extra

0:14:20.699,0:14:27.139
gold tips here one extra one device and

0:14:24.179,0:14:31.949
that’s it the office 365 subscription

0:14:27.139,0:14:36.589
five devices including I think a smart

0:14:31.949,0:14:36.589
phone a computer

0:14:36.740,0:14:45.110
and even yes and then let me think yeah

0:14:41.330,0:14:47.120
so let’s say you up to five devices I

0:14:45.110,0:14:49.280
think but you could you could install it

0:14:47.120,0:14:51.140
on a smartphone on Android because and

0:14:49.280,0:14:53.120
then I think even iPhone because now

0:14:51.140,0:14:57.140
they have versions of office 365 that

0:14:53.120,0:14:58.930
will run well that you can install on a

0:14:57.140,0:15:00.700
dumb device I mean a smart device

0:14:58.930,0:15:07.370
anything else

0:15:00.700,0:15:12.110
here’s another gold tip do not forget

0:15:07.370,0:15:14.720

0:15:12.110,0:15:16.880
cannot log in you’re fucked and

0:15:14.720,0:15:18.590
Microsoft they don’t fucking care you

0:15:16.880,0:15:21.020
most likely you’re gonna have to buy

0:15:18.590,0:15:23.960
another well what’s gonna happen is

0:15:21.020,0:15:26.240
you’re gonna have to get another ID em

0:15:23.960,0:15:28.820
and they may not be nice they may be in

0:15:26.240,0:15:30.940
a bad mood their sales what isn’t high

0:15:28.820,0:15:33.470
enough they haven’t bent over enough

0:15:30.940,0:15:35.090
victims I mean customers and rip them

0:15:33.470,0:15:36.410
off I mean you know charge enough

0:15:35.090,0:15:38.990
subscriptions so there are in a foul

0:15:36.410,0:15:41.960
mood when you call Microsoft they may

0:15:38.990,0:15:46.190
require you to buy another subscription

0:15:41.960,0:15:48.170
and then with a separate login ID and

0:15:46.190,0:15:51.710
then it can turn into it that that’s

0:15:48.170,0:15:54.320
another I don’t ever when it comes to

0:15:51.710,0:15:56.330
that I almost never help people because

0:15:54.320,0:15:59.210
it can turn into it turns into a

0:15:56.330,0:16:04.340
complete nightmare anything else let me

0:15:59.210,0:16:07.490
see so when you get this right because

Epson 4500 Printer – Not Connected to Macintosh Fix

Another computer printer problem in the world order. This time an individual was no longer able to use their Epson 4500 Printer. The original initial question is quoted verbatim below.

All of a sudden my Epson 4500 printer/scanner says it’s not connected to my Macintosh (operating system Mojave 10.14.3). It has just happened on a frantic work day. What to do?

It is definitely connected.

This is a common problem that occurs on both Apple Macintosh computers and Microsoft Windows based computers. This individual could no longer scan using the automatic document feeder. Also, this type of false positive, so to speak, problem is NOT mutually exclusive to just Epson brand printers.

This type of problem can occur with any brand of printer. When they tried to scan they also received that dreaded not connected error. This individual tried to power off both their Apple Macintosh computer and Epson 4500 printer as well as disconnecting their printer from their Apple Macintosh computer.

You want to power off your printer. Then you want to disconnect the power cable from your wall outlet. Now disconnect the Universal Serial Bus printer cable from both your printer and computer.

Press and hold the power button on your printer for 30-60 seconds. Leave your printer disconnected from the power source for 5 to 10 minutes. Reconnect the Universal Serial Bus cable and power cable.

Power on your printer and see if it will now print and or scan. If this does not fix your problem with your printer problem, then you will need to download and reinstall the printer software and driver.

Remove all instances of your printer software from “Applications”. Remove all instances of your printer from “Printers & Scanners”. Download and install the printer software from the link below.

https://ftp.epson.com/drivers/ET4500_Lite_64_NA.dmg

These instructions were written for an Apple Macintosh computer with Apple Macintosh operating system Mojave 10.14.3 installed and Epson ET 4500 printer. You can most certainly use these instructions as a basis point to possibly solve the same printer problem with the same error on other Apple Macintosh operating systems. You would just need to download the appropriate driver for your specific Apple Macintosh operating system.

Also, you can use these instructions as a basis point for troubleshooting printer not connected errors on Microsoft Windows operating systems. Once again, you would just need to download the specific driver and software appropriate for the version of Microsoft operating system installed on your computer.

How to Upgrade Yosemite – to El Capitan

Another computer question surfaces in the world order. This time an individual wanted to upgrade the operating system on their Macintosh computer. The initial original question quoted verbatim is below.

How do I upgrade my Mac to OS 10.12?

This individual owned a Apple Macintosh computer with Macintosh operating system 10.11.6 El Capitan installed. They needed to upgrade their Macintosh computer operating system to comply with the download and attempted install of Turbo Tax software. This is a common occurrence with tax software.

Depending on the brand, many new tax software releases require you to upgrade your operating system. At this time Turbo Tax required Apple Macintosh operating system 10.12 Sierra in order to work.

You can upgrade via the Apple Macintosh Application Store. Also, you can use the iTunes link below. You will need your Macintosh administrator account password and Apple identification to upgrade.

https://support.apple.com/macos/mojave

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/macos-mojave/id1398502828?mt=12

This individual then claimed that their Apple Macintosh computer was not compatible with Apple Macintosh 10.14 Mojave operating system. You can try this link below.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/macos-sierra/id1127487414?ls=1&mt=12

Also, you can check out the full Apple Macintosh Sierra 10.12 installation instructions. This individual then had forgotten their Apple Macintosh administrator password. If you forget your Apple Macintosh administrator password, there are numerous ways to reset it.

However, you will need some technical skills, which according to my experiences, many Apple endusers lack basic computing skills. This is an excellent time to lecture. You should always know your Apple Macintosh administrator password.

In this day and age what with the Internet, there are no excuses to remain so ignorant of such basic computer skills. Also, you should always know your Apple Identification password. Without either of these passwords, you are fucked, when it comes to being able to upgrade your Apple Macintosh operating system.

Luckily, the Apple Macintosh operating system has some different ways to potentially reset it. However, I would never use this type of feature like a crutch.

Logitech C920 Webcam Mac – Mojave Compatible

Another computer issue in the world order. This time an individual had a question about Macintosh computers and webcam compatibility. Here is the original initial question verbatim below.

I need help getting my new Logitech C920 web cam to work.

This individual was using a Apple Macintosh mini computer with Apple Macintosh Mojave 10.14 operating system installed. They had purchased an application from the Apple Applicatin store called “Web Cam Settings”. What a fucking waste of money.

Anyways, they had watched another Youtube video to try and help them install the Logitech C920 on their Apple Macintosh mini computer with Apple Macintosh Mojave 10.14 operating system installed. This is what solved this conundrum.

You can download and install the webcam software from the following link.

https://download01.logi.com/web/ftp/pub/techsupport/cameras/Webcams/LogiCameraSettings_2.5.12.pkg

They were then able to use their Logitech C920 webcam with their Apple Macintosh mini computer. When it comes to Logitech web cameras and Apple Macintosh computers, it can become a crap shoot. It really depends on the exact model of Logitech web camera you have.

Also, important is what Apple Macintosh operating system you are using. You do NOT necessarily want to assume that your Logitech web camera will work with your Apple Macintosh computer. Also, you do NOT want to necessarily assume that the operating system you are using on your Apple Macintosh computer will be compatible with your Logitech web camera.

You could always first find out what web camera model you have or wish to purchase. Then find out the exact operating system you are using. This example this individual was using Apple Macintosh 10.14 Mojave.

Then you want to verify on Logitech’s website whether or not your Logitech web camera will work or not. Sometimes there will be a software download available. However, depending on the exact operating system and Logitech we camera model, there may NOT be any software download available for your Apple Macintosh computer.

Also, you want to first install the software onto your Macintosh computer. Then once that is accomplished successfully, you connect the web camera to a Universal Serial Bus cable on your Macintosh computer. Finally, you open up a video software application similar to Facetime, Skype, etc. to test your web camera.

Dell Latitude E5530 Factory Restore

Another computer question from a third party website where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. This one deals with factory restoring a Dell computer. The question is quoted verbatim below.

Hi, I have a Dell Latitude E5530. I want to sell it so want to remove any possible way it links to me. How do I factory reset it or what do you recommend I do.

This individual was using a Dell Latitude E5530 with Microsoft Windows 10 operating system installed. You can wipe all your data and reinstall Windows 10 with “Reset this PC”. You can perform a “Reset this PC”.

You will have two options. One will allow you to keep all your personal data, but your applications will get removed. The second option will remove all your personal data and applications.

Follow the instructions below if you want to perform a “Reset this PC”. Left click the Windows 10 start menu button. Click on the “Settings” gear icon.

Then choose “Update & Security”. Now choose “Recovery” then select “Reset this PC”. Click on “Get Started” and choose an option.

Also, you can type in reset this PC into a Cortana search box. Cortana search icon is a round circle or globe icon usually in the lower left corner near the Microsoft Windows 10 start menu button. Reset this PC will remove all personal data, applications, and settings.

The same version of Microsoft Windows 10 you had when you purchased your computer will then reinstall. Also, only applications that were installed in Microsoft Windows 10 well reinstall. This is a relatively quick and easy way to wipe everything from your computer.

If you want to start over with Microsoft Windows 10, sell your computer, or give it away, then this allows you to wipe your computer and reinstall Microsoft Windows 10 with essentially one command.

HP Printer Keeps Going Offline – Possible Fix

Another printer problem in the world order. This time an individual was having problems with their printer continually in offline mode. The original initial request is quoted below.

My HP envy 7155 printer quit working. The computer says it is not online. I can’t turn it off or on and the screen shows the number 00829C98.

What is wrong with it?

This individual was using a computer with Microsoft Windows 10 installed. Power off printer. Disconnect power cable from wall outlet.

Disconnect USB printer cable from both printer and computer. Press and hold power button on printer for 30-60 seconds. Leave printer disconnected from power for 5-10 minutes.

Reconnect USB cable and power cable. Power on printer and see if it will now print.

The above instructions fixed this problem. However, printer offline errors are common and NOT always a hardware problem. If the above instructions did NOT resolve your issue, then you need to remove and reinstall the printer software.

If you are using a Macintosh computer, remove all instances of your printer software from “Applications”. Also, you can use finder to remove your printer software from “Applications”. Click on “Go” at the top menu bar.

You should see “Applications” in a list. Remove all instances of your printer from “Printers & Scanners”. In order to get to “Printers & Scanners” click on the “System Properties” gear icon down below in your dock. Highlight your printer and then click the minus sign (-) to remove that printer. Download and install the printer software from the link below.

Please do NOT connect your printer to your Macintosh until instructed to do so. You can use “Finder” to find your downloads. Finder is located in your dock down below.

Look for your “Downloads” folder. Once you open up Finder you will see your Macintosh username on the left hand side. Click on your username to expand the contents.

You should see a “Downloads” folder. This official Apple support link has more details and pictures about finder that may help you use it. If you are using Microsoft Windows 7, then follow these instructions.

Remove the printer software from “Programs & Features”. Then remove the printer from “Devices & Printers”. Now type the following command into a run box:

printui /s /t2

Select your printer and click on “Remove…”. Select “Remove driver and driver package.” Click “OK” then click on “Yes”.

Click on “Delete”. Download and reinstall the printer software. If you are using Microsoft Windows 10, then follow these instructions.

Remove the printer software from “Apps & Features”. Then remove the printer from “Printers & scanners”. Now type the following command into a run box:

printui /s /t2

Select your printer and click on “Remove…”. Select “Remove driver and driver package.” Click “OK” then click on “Yes”.

Click on “Delete”.

Download and reinstall the printer software. These instructions were written for a Hewlett Packard 7155 printer with Microsoft Windows 10. The Macintosh instructions are for newer Macintosh operating systems in the High Sierra, Mojave, etc. realm.

The instructions for the hardware troubleshooting for printer offline error can certainly be used for other printer manufacturer’s. For example Brother, Lexmark, Dell, etc.

Canon Printer Error C000 – Troubleshooting

Another computer problem in the world order. This one deals with a printer problem. The initial original question is quoted verbatim below.

I have an MX922 printer problem. Printer shows Service Code C000. I have turned printer off, unplugged it, plugged it in and turned it on and still get the same error. I have done this several times with the same result.

What fixed this Canon printer error C000 was actually reinstalling the printer cartridges. This individual took out the existing printer cartridges and then reinserted into the cartridge holder. Ink cartridges are also known as ink tanks.

After this procedure this individual was able to clear that dreaded Canon printer error c000. I will give you some additional tips that may clear this C000 error. You can make certain that any printer packing material(s) have been removed from your printer.

For safe transportation of your printer during shipping, printer manufacturers often times including packing material to protect your printer. You need to remove this material or else you could receive the dreaded Canon printer error C000. Also, clear any jammed paper and or obstruction paper feed path.

Basically, anywhere paper moves inside your printer, you need to check for jammed paper. Anything that obstructs the movement of paper could also cause this C000 error. The following is a list of paper jams and associated error codes.

  • 1300 Paper jammed at output slot
  • 1304 Paper jammed when automatic duplex printing
  • 1311 Paper loaded in upper cassette is jammed
  • 1312 Paper loaded in lower cassette is jammed
  • 1313 Paper jammed by machine when pulling in printed paper
  • 2801 Document is jammed in Auto Document Feeder

As you can see, there are quite a few places that paper can become jammed inside of a printer. Automatic duplex printing means double sided or both sides of paper printing. The output slot is where you grab your paper when printing finished.

The automatic document feeder is used when copying, faxing, scanning, etc. This is where you place sheets that are automatically pulled into the printer, instead of placing them on the glass. Some printers have more than one cassette where you load paper.

Paper fed into the printer from these cassettes or trays can become jammed. Also, make sure to look for obstructions in these areas. Finally, small jammed or turn pieces of paper can cause this dreadful Canon printer error C000.

If none of the above tips and instructions clears that error, then you can try the following. Power off your printer. Disconnect the power cable from the wall outlet.

Press and hold the power button on your printer for 30-60 seconds. Leave that printer disconnected from power for 5 minutes. Reconnect the power cable.

Power on your printer and see if it will now print. Canon recommends getting your printer serviced if none of these tips solve your printer problem. However, I will include one last tip.

If your printer continues to jam paper, then make sure to check the printer rollers. There are rollers inside your printer that actually grip onto the paper itself. These rollers get dirty over time just by dust alone. Clean any and all of these rollers with 99 percent isopropyl alcohol.

This type of alcohol is also known as rubbing alcohol. You should be able to purchase this fast drying liquid at stores similar to Walgreens. Also, you could include the cleaning of the printer rollers as routine maintenance.

Jammed paper could be the result of printer rollers that just need a good cleaning. The links I provided in this blog post are official web pages from Canon, that provide further more detailed instructions with photos and at least one video. Believe it or not, printer paper can get stuck and jammed behind paper trays, causing the C000 error to appear.

You would just pull out any paper tray(s) and remove any paper found. You want to remove even small pieces of paper from your printer. Printer paper can get torn inside your printer, which could cause this C000 error to appear.

This individual was able to fix their Canon printer error C000 quite easily, by just reinstalling the printer cartridges also known as ink tanks. However, often times printer errors are not this easily fixed. These instructions and tips were written for a Canon Pixma MX922 with the Canon printer error C000 code.

However, you could use these same instructions and tips to possibly clear this same error message from other Canon printers.
