Lubuntu wifi scanning & connecting

June 29, 2014 Leave a comment

Lubuntu isn’t the easiest to connect to wifi

sudo ifconfig wlan0 up

then goto pref: net connections – add and select wifi add the routers ID – SSID eg BThomehub (ID) and in the general tab add the password under WPA for instance then save and close

go back to terminal LX in my case sudo dhclient and then fire up your browser and bingo you should be cooking with gas or even have the internet


Power meter software – Golden Cheetah for Lubuntu / Linux

Golden Cheetah
Cycling Performance Software for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows

My new power2max power meter comes with no software so after my FTP test over 26 minutes to get an idea on heart rate / power and cadence you need the cheetah software to see how you perform in certain area’s

you can find the GC software @ the software centre in the lubuntu menu but then after it installs you need to plug your Garmin in and run TERMINAL type GoldenCheetah and up it pops (with linux / lubuntu you might get this error Sqlite, so you need to install this  – libqt4-sql-sqlite – synaptic package manger has this file mark it and install shut terminal down and restart fully loads the info from your garmin JOB DONE


great free software you can find it HERE
