    openSUSE-13.2 gimagereader - Once again, Malcolmlewis was also kind enough to package gImageReader for openSUSE-13.2.

    openSUSE-13.2

    For information, to setup gImageReader to read/OCR German and French in opnSUSE-13.2, I modified the guide above since a number of the packages are either no longer required or not included.

    First - to add Malcomlewis' repository (the below commands need to be sent with root permissions) :
    Code:
    zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/malcolmlewis:/Miscellanous/openSUSE_13.2/ malcolm
    Then to install the necessary applications :
    Code:
    zypper in aspell-de aspell-en aspell-fr ispell-french ispell-german aspell-spell
    Code:
    zypper in tesseract tesseract-traineddata-german tesseract-traineddata-american tesseract-traineddata-french python-gimagereader python-imaging
    I obtained the error 'python-imaging' not found in package names. Trying capabilities. So it reads one no longer requires python-imaging.

    ... and finally to remove the repository :
    Code:
    zypper rr malcolm
    Again, this can be launched with the command "gimagewriter".

    Many thanks again to Malcomlewis for packaging gimagereader.

    It turns out there is another Foscam update to new firmware 2.x.1.116. Reference: http://foscam.us/forum/new-firmware-...ed-t11118.html. I missed this update, as it is not yet on the German Foscam site, although it is on the Foscam Asia site.

    I plan to apply this firmware prior to any further GNU/Linux updates on this blog entry wrt using the IP camera with GNU/Linux. In particular I want to the the improved security updates in place.

    New Firmware 2.x.1.116

    Improvements:
    1)Improve the security of CGI and RTSP.
    2)Optimize the Main Stream and Sub Stream function;
    3)Add new configuration option "Enhanced the night vision definition under Video Settings;
    4)Add new feature that modify IP address without rebooting the camera;
    5)Optimize the display effect of OSD;
    6)Add Variable bitrate function on the Main stream video setting;
    7) Fix the problem that certificate of the plug-in is expired.
    .
    Edit: On the US foscam Forum I read of some users who are unhappy with this firmware update: http://foscam.us/forum/fw-v-2-x-1-11...rs-t11144.html

    And I have also read there is an "optional" firmware patch for 2.x-1-116 users: http://foscam.us/forum/official-opti...16-t11259.html

    This is an optional patch for firmware version 2.x.1.116 only. That you don't need to install unless you are encountering one of the three issues listed below and/or you wish to fortify your HTTPS access to your camera, which is using firmware version 2.x.1.116.

    This is an offical patch for H.264 based IP Cameras currently being sold that are on firmware versions 2.x.1.116 produced by Foscam as an interim fix between firmware releases.

    This patch fixes the following issues:

    1. If you use HTTPS access methods to access your cameras. Disables SSL 3.0 when using HTTPS access methods to the camera using the Standard Camera Interface to mitigate the Poodle vulnerability.

    More details about the Poodle vulnerability here:

    https://www.openssl.org/~bodo/ssl-poodl ... clnk&gl=us

    2. Fixes the issue where the Pan/Tilt controls are not being shown in the Standard Camera Interface.

    3. Fixes the issue where the Playback tab is not being shown in the Standard Camera Interface.

    Given the above, I think I will wait before updating.

    Pan and Tilt control from within GNU/Linux (success)

    More on using GNU/Linux for a PAN/TILT with the FI9831W. On the Foscam Web site Forum page, user " TheUberOverLord " has packaged a number of HTML applications for FOSCAM cameras. That user also offers a commercial support, where one can pay him to help on setup one's generic browser (operating system independant) to work with a Foscam Camera for PAN and TILT.

    He also provides free packages for a browser. He provides guidance here, where I initially found that a bit over-whelming due to the many examples and varied links he had on that forum page.

    But ultimately, using his "free" pages (without having to contact him for support), the bottom line is one can download the HTML page from here and save it locally (do NOT click on it to run ... it needs to be edited) :
    http://www.saveontelephonebills.com/...neric21V20.htm

    And then one goes in and edits the file:
    • IP Address or DDNS and Port
    • Valid User Id For Camera
    • Valid Password for above

    After that is done, one can click on that locally, and one is presented in one's default browser with a page with PAN/ZOOM controls and an image (640 resolution) from their camera that works with the Camera controls (and while coded for the FI9821W, it appears to work with my FI9831W).

    The file can then be edited to have a higher resolution. ... etc ... For example 1280x920 resolution worked with my FI9831W, albeit the image (and controls) were a bit larger than my desktop computer display could show all at once, and I had to scroll up/down to access the PAN/TILT controls.

    I successfully tested this with openSUSE-13.1 (on my home LAN) with both Firefox browser and Google Chrome browser.

    I do note thou, that it will send a username and password "in the clear" (unencrypted) over the internet, so its likely not safe to use from outside of one's internal home LAN.

    Many thanks to Foscam user "TheUberOverLord" for making this freely available.

    Android Setup

    I have a couple of Android devices at home. One is an old low-performance Asus Transformer TF-101 tablet (which has the very latest Android version on it due to superb 3rd party hacker community support) and a relatively high-performance Chinese dual-sim octa-core smartphone (Zopo ZP-980+) .

    IP-Cam Viewer – lack of success

    At first I installed an Android app called "IP-Cam-Viewer". In that I entered the Camera's IP-address on my home LAN, entered the camera's port (by default port '88') , and entered the newly created camera's username and password. That initially worked ok, and I could see the camera's video output, and control the cameras pan and tilt with my Android device !

    I then setup port forwarding on my home router to port forward from a high port number on the router (say 63000) to the camera's appropriate port (which is port '88' by default). But I failed in accessing the camera from the Internet using that setup.

    Not only did I have that problem, but then the internal LAN access to the camera stopped working. I double checked the router/application settings and they were correct, which made me think of 2 possibilities:
    (1) application did not work
    (2) camera was broken.
    Turning camera on/off did not help. I still could not access the camera remotely.

    Hence I decided to see if it was an application problem (possibly bad configuration information now stored on my Android device associated with the IP-Camera application).

    So I tried another Android application and that worked.

    IP-Cam-View-Basic - success !!

    I installed the android IP-camera application called ”IP-Cam-View-Basic” and it immediately worked both on my home LAN, and also with my external IP address settings.

    With this application, using my Smartphone from anywhere, I can control the IP-Camera's pan and tilt, and see the camera's video. It uses a lot of bandwidth, so its nominally best NOT to use with 3G, but rather use only when one's Android device has wireless Internet access. If one were to use 3G, the video that is being streamed could use up most of one's monthly bandwidth which is not desirable.

    Here are a couple of images from the IP-Cam-View-Basic webpage, which illustrates the sort of menu that one will see on their Android phone :



    and if one clicks on the "PTZ Preset" control one obtains something like:



    (the above will vary dependent on the resolution of one's Android phone display).

    I also setup the IP-Camera with motion detection at specific times of the day (when no one is nominally home) and an email alarm to indicate when there is motion detected by the camera. Hence if I receive such a notification in my email, I could then use 3G to observe the intruder.

    OpenSUSE GNU/Linux

    Thus far, until this point, my openSUSE use, had been limited to running winXP in a Virtual Session and I did not want to be restricted to only doing that for desktop PC access to the IP-Camera.


    Video in GNU/Linux Browser

    First, it is possible to access the camera's setup by typing in a GNU/Linux browser the Camera's IP and port. Ie Say for example, the camera's IP is: 192.168.1.30, and the Camera's port for the controls is port '88'. Then one would type: 192.168.1.30:88 and that gives access to the camera's login” under GNU/Linux. Entering username/password gives one entry to the Camera's setup.


    Note the plugin link on that page does NOT work with GNU/Linux. And since there is no-plugin for GNU/Linux, one does NOT see the camera's video streamed, nor does one have access to the camera's pan/tilt controls.

    But I noted this page on the Foscam support forum, which provided this line for use with one's browser (such as firefox). What I did was copy the text in the code below into a text file that I called “myfoxcam.html” and when clicking on that file, it will display the camera's video in the browser:
    Code:
     <img src="http://192.168.1.30:88/CGIProxy.fcgi?cmd=snapPicture2&usr=username&pwd=userpassword&t=" onload='setTimeout(function() {src = src.substring(0, (src.lastIndexOf("t=")+2))+(new Date()).getTime()}, 1000)' onerror='setTimeout(function() {src = src.substring(0, (src.lastIndexOf("t=")+2))+(new Date()).getTime()}, 5000)' alt='' />
    Where if you look closely at that code, you will see “http://192.168.1.30:88” and also see “username” and “userpassword” where one should instead place their Camera's internal IP address, their Camera's 'username' and their Camera's 'userpassword' .

    So I could now display the camera's video within a GNU/Linux (openSUSE-13.1) Firefox browser.

    Note this is streaming from the camera using the h264 encoding, hence I suspect ffmpeg and some other Packman applications I have installed make this display possible, and without those likely this would not work. I can not say which specific Packman apps were needed, as I already have many Packman packaged multimedia apps installed for h264.


    Video via RTSP:

    Further to this, I noted if I copied the following text into a browser I could have the option to display the browser's video with my VLC player:
    Code:
     rtsp://username:userpassword@192.168.1.30:88/videoMain
    where again, one should instead place their Camera's internal IP address, their Camera's 'username' and their Camera's 'userpassword' .

    VLC standalone

    I also noted if I launch 'vlc' player, go to Media → Stream → Network and enter the same 'rtsp' line as above, I can also stream the IP-Camera's video direct to vlc. With that, the video was displayed with my vlc viewer.


    PAN/TILT and ZOOM


    What I have failed to do thus far, is control PAN/TILT and ZOOM from a regular GNU/Linux distribution. I read of a success story here, where a GNU/Linux user with a Foscam FI9831W was able to control pan/tilt with GNU/Linux , but I have not been able to replicate their pan/tilt control success with openSUSE-13.1. Fortunately the pan-tilt DOES work with my mobile phone and my Tablet (running Android 'GNU/Linux' variant), which is the main method in which I plan to use to control the cameras pan/tilt.

    I disabled pulseaudio in Yast and Skype works fine... In fact all audio apps are working fine for me under 13.1 - Rosegarden, VLC, Mplayer, web browsers with plugins, I even use 2 soundcards.... and ALSA directly
    I think pulseaudio is the problem. Who needs it when everything works fine without it?

    Some tuning that I did to this 64-bit openSUSE-13.1 liveUSB stick included:

    • switch on the firewall (it was OFF by default)
    • change the root password from < enter > to my own password for user 'root'
    • change the password for the user 'linux' to my own password for user 'linux'
    • add a new user oldcpu with my own password
    • block ssh access for root user

    FreeDOS also works with an openSUSE-13.1 install on a traditional BIOS/MBR partitioning system with legacy grub.

    I installed FreeDOS on an older PC this weekend, where that PC had an openSUSE-13.1 install, and thus confirming that compatibility. I put FreeDOS into /dev/sda1 (500 MB FAT32 partition) on that PC.

    I successfully tested openSUSE-13.1 HDMI using this Toshiba Satellite Z930 Ultrabook earlier today.

    The test consisted of connecting the Ultrabook's HDMI output to our TV's HDMI input using an HDMI cable. We first selected the TV's HDMI input using the TV's remote. Then once the HDMI cable was connected from computer to TV I started a video with smplayer and typed in a konsole 'xrandr' . The smplayer application and video then appeared on the TV without sound from the TV. I then ran the application 'pavucontrol' and selected one of the 'HDMI' options in the 'pavucontrol' configuration tab. I then ensured pavucontrol 'output' and 'playback' tabs were consistent with the HDMI selection. That immediately provided the videos sound to the TV speakers (as per the smplayer application playback).

    One thing that surprised me, was that typing 'xrandr' did not bring up a monitor control GUI but rather only continued with the konsole display. I was eventually able to teach myself how to start/stop the HDMI with the xrandr command arguments. I did not figure out how to bring up a monitor control GUI.

    But both my wife and I were happy to have the HDMI working to our TV. This now opens up the possibility of easily watching home videos on our living room TV using my Toshiba Satellite Z930 Ultrabook computer.

    For information, to setup gImageReader to read/OCR German and French in opnSUSE-13.1, I modified the guide above since a number of the packages are now part of the baseline openSUSE repository, plus some names of packages have changed. I sent the following package manager commands to add Malcomlewis' repository and install the required packages:

    First - to add Malcomlewis' repository :

    This sounds like a permissions issue then. Is your user's session listed by "loginctl"?

    After my upgrade from openSUSE 12.3 to 13.1 I lost line-in sound, and start-up sound. I disabled Pulseaudio and have line-in now, but still have no start-up sound?

    Startup sound is disabled by default in recent KDE versions.
    You can configure one in "Configure Desktop"->"Application and System Notifications" though.

    Thank you very much for that, I'll look in to it. Thanks again. Bob Jankowski

    Hi,

    The only way I can get Skype to work properly was to run it as root and disable Pulseaudio (did the latency thing too).

    After my upgrade from openSUSE 12.3 to 13.1 I lost line-in sound, and start-up sound. I disabled Pulseaudio and have line-in now, but still have no start-up sound?

    With previous 12.3 openSUSE, boot up sometimes hanged for bit with pulseaudio activated.

    Asus P5P43TD with on board Intel Audio ALC887

    p.s. this is my first blog so apology’s if it's in the wrong place.
