create smb-users group
sudo addgroup smb-users
sudo chgrp -R smb-users /disk2/data
create user
useradd -c “name” username
add a current user to smb-users
sudo usermod -a -G smb-users someuser
set a samba password
smbpasswd -a username
Samba config file
*add this to /etc/samba/smb.conf *

[global] workgroup = HOME
netbios name = SAMBA
server string = Samba Server %v
map to guest = Bad User
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 50
preferred master = No
local master = No
dns proxy = No
security = User

[mydata] path = /path/to/mydata
valid users = @smb-users
read only = No
create mask = 0777
directory mask = 0777

its pretty easy all you have to have is uck and a ubuntu cd iso from here

i highly recommend following this
works fine for server using \ip\share instead of \server\share

Install Packages
sudo apt-get install autoconf automake libtool libogg-dev libpng12-dev libjpeg-dev check libsdl1.2-dev git

Compile Daala
git clone && cd daala


./configure && make -j22

make tools

  1. Install Cygwin x64

  2. Install apt-cyg

    install apt-cyg /bin

  3. Install Packages
    apt-cyg install gcc-core make pkg-config autoconf automake libtool libogg-devel libpng-devel libjpeg-devel check git

  4. Compile Daala

    git clone

    cd daala


    ./configure --disable-player

    make -j22

    make tools

if the compile fail try commenting out
CFLAGS="-std=c89 -pedantic -Wall -Wextra -Wno-parentheses -Wno-long-long -Wno-overlength-strings $CFLAGS"


with # on front of the lines
from file

issues: only encoder works for me atm, i need to figure out howto properly compile SDL, tools might fail to compile too with make tools

looks like the good folks over at primatelabs updated geekbench to support HighDPI/HighPPI displays

samsung posted thier firmware and a tool to fix it today

realy quick guide, might not work :P
start with a root terminal

adduser node
su node
unzip && cd ghost-0.5.2
npm install && npm install pm2
node_modules/pm2/bin/pm2 start index.js --name Ghost
node_modules/pm2/bin/pm2 list (to show if ghost is running)

Living with a High PPI display is kinda annoying
Yes the resolution is sweet but the software looks like a blurrymess

case in point, Geekbench Left is 13.3"(1920x1080) HighPPi/DPi
Right is 24"(1920x1200) LowPPi/DPi

luckly i got this from the developer
"Thanks for the heads up. We’ll make sure Geekbench is DPI-aware in an upcoming release."

HWinfo is also getting better DPI-Awareness in their upcoming builds
