Digi-gurdy : une vielle à roue MIDI





[English below]

Il y a peu j'ai découvert le projet de XenonJohn : une vielle à roue MIDI, appelée Digi-Gurdy. Ce qui veut dire que mon instrument (oui, parce que j'ai acheté ^^) ne génère aucun son, juste des informations sur USB, et c'est un ordinateur (ou smartphone ou ce que vous voulez) qui génère le son en fonction de ces informations. Oh, c'est sûr, ça ne fait pas comme une vraie : ça ne sonne pas pareil, ça n'a pas la même prise en main, il n'y a pas la douceur du bois, on ne peux pas jouer avec les cordes à la main, etc... MAIS ça coûte quand même moins cher qu'une vielle d'étude, on ne passe pas une heure à l'accorder, on peut mettre un casque pour ne pas déranger quand on s'entraîne (même si ça fait quand même un peu de bruit, il y a un minimum de mécanique), et c'est à base de Teensy 3.5, une carte microcontrôleur compatible Arduino (mais plus compacte, bien plus rapide et avec pas mal de fonctionnalités en plus, pour un prix pas beaucoup plus élevé, voir moins élevé si on prends du Teensy LC) que j'aime beaucoup, et donc je compte bien (quand j'en trouverai le temps haha) essayer de jouer avec le logiciel embarqué pour contribuer à tout ça, j'ai plein d'idées !

A l'occasion il faudrait aussi que j'apprenne à jouer de l'instrument un peu, quand même... En tout cas j'ai réussi à faire tourner tout ça avec mon PC portable sous Linux Manjaro, à l'aide des couples jack-QjackCtl et fluidsynth-Qsynth (une fois que j'ai désactivé PulseAudio en tout cas).



[English]Not so long ago I discovered XenonJohn's project : a MIDI hurdy-gurdy, called Digi-Gurdy. Which means that my instrument (yes, I did buy it ^^) does not make any sound, it just sends out USB data, and you need a computer (or smartphone or whatever you want) to actually generate sound according to this data. Oh, for sure, it is not like a true one : it does not sound the same, does not have the same handling, it lacks the nice touch and feel of the wood, you cannot play with the cords by hand, and so on... BUT it costs less than a study instrument, you do not need to spend hours tuning it, you can put a headset so as not to disturb when training (it still makes some noise as there is a little bit of mechanics in there), and it is based on the Teensy 3.5, an Arduino-compatible microcontroller board (except it is more compact, way faster and with a bunch of extra functions, for a price that is not much higher, or oven lower if you take a Teensy LC) which I lake a lot, and I intend (when I find the time haha) to try and play around with the embedded software to contribute to all that, I have a lot of ideas !

At some point I should also learn how to actually play the instrument a bit... At least I managed to run it with my laptop running Linux Manjaro, using the pairs jack-QjackCtl and fluidsynth-Qsynth (at least once I had deactivated PulseAudio)

Anyone interested to try diaspora debian package on a server for some days and let people play with it?

Instructions are here https://wiki.debian.org/Diaspora#Buster_Fasttrack.2Fpersonal_repo

A good way to contribute that does not require a lot of technical skills. Familiarity with command line and installing packages with apt is all you need.

I'm happy to help if you need support. See https://poddery.com/posts/5702084 for the background.

Alternatively, if you cannot afford to buy a server, you can try this locally on your machine, say in an lxc container or in a virtual machine, though other people will not be able to access it. We hope to include diaspora package as part of Freedom Box if we can fix all the known issues.

Story of #Janayugom

The first #newspaper in the world to use 100% #FreeSoftware for news publishing

Introduction


Janayugom is a Malayalam (a South-Indian language spoken in Kerala) daily newspaper with nearly 100,000 subscribers and 14 bureaus in Kerala. Previously Janayugom used to depend upon an outdated version of a proprietary software (Adobe PageMaker, final major release in 2001) for their layout and production related works. Moreover it only supported ASCII encoding. When they decided that they should move to a better software with much more essential features including Unicode support, the most recommended suggestion from the software industry was to use Adobe InDesign (successor of Adobe PageMaker). But then they found that, unlike for PageMaker, InDesign cannot be purchased for a one-time license fee but only available for a monthly (or annual) subscription fee which was economically not at all viable for Janayugom. That realization marked the beginning of a historical footstep both in the field of Newspaper Publishing as well as Free Software world.

Search for alternatives


Since Adobe InDesign wasn't affordable for Janayugom, they consulted K. H. Hussain (popularly known as 'Hussain mash', The Director of Rachana Institute of Typography and the developer of various Unicode fonts in Malayalam including Rachana) and P. K. Ashok Kumar (who has more than 4 decades of expertise in the art of typesetting) for another alternative. It's them who suggested Scribus, a Free and Open Source Desktop Publishing Software, for Janayugom. Hussain mash further contacted Praveen Arimbrathodiyil (official Debian Developer, Free Software advocate and activist who works restlessly to promote Free Software and thus having a lot of contacts in this field) asking for support in Scribus and GNU/Linux (Free and Open Source Operating System) in general. It's through Praveen, Hussain mash came to know about Mujeeb Rahman K (Co-founder of Alpha Fork Technologies, YouTuber - IBComputing) who has already worked with Scribus before and a regular user of Free and Open Source Software for day-to-day needs.

Team formation


Under the leadership of Hussain mash and Ashokan mash, a team was formed consisting of Ranjith Sajeev (also known as Ranjith Siji, Co-founder of Alpha Fork Technologies), Mujeeb Rahman K, Kannan V M and Ambady Anand S (who are all members of Free Software Community of India and Software Developers of Alpha Fork Technologies) to provide the technical support required for Janayugom to migrate to Scribus. From now onwards 'we' here means this team consisting of 6 core members mentioned above.

Migration to Unicode and Traditional Malayalam Exhaustive Character Set


Since Janayugom was migrating to Unicode as well, Hussain mash, who is an active advocate of the exhaustive character set of Malayalam (aka 'old lipi' or 'thanathu lipi'), undertook the work of developing three new Unicode fonts, named TN Joy, R Sugathan and Janayugom, which all consist of old lipi. Among these, TN Joy font has already been released, named so in the memory of T.N. Joy (a well-known political and social activist), under SIL Open Font License and is available for public at http://rachana.org.in. Hussain mash is also the developer of Rachana, Meera, Keraleeyam and Uroob fonts which are currently maintained by SMC (Swathanthra Malayalam Computing) along with some other fonts. Apart from the general benefits of migrating to Unicode, it also enables Janayugom to use any of these fonts.

Migration to 100% Free Software


Through Hussain mash and Ashokan mash, Janayugom got convinced that migration to Scribus is crucial for its existence in a time where newspaper publishing industry is already facing economic crisis due to various non-friendly policies of the Central Government. In addition to that the subscription fee of various necessary but proprietary software, including operating system, will literally mark the end of many small and medium scale publications. That's what urged Janayugom to migrate to 100% Free Software, which also marks a political statement regarding their resistance against both the Multi-National Companies that levy unaffordable charges and the Central Government that isn't working in their interests. The solution we offered was to develop and maintain their own operating system, which later became known as Janayugom GNU/Linux, consisting all the required tools (including #Scribus, #GIMP, #Inkscape, #LibreOffice, an ASCII-to-Unicode converter - which later became known as Janayugom Edit, etc) for all of their prepress processes.

Janayugom GNU/Linux


We studied the workflow of Janayugom prepress processes and decided to develop an operating system, also known as GNU/Linux distribution (distro as short), that satisfies all their needs. The development was carried out under the guidance of Ranjith Siji who suggested Kubuntu (a flavor of Ubuntu that comes with KDE Plasma Desktop Environment by default instead of GNOME) as the base distro for developing the OS because Ubuntu (a derivative of Debian GNU/Linux, a community project which also maintains the largest repo of Free Software in the world) has better support for a wide variety of hardware in general and offers relatively latest updates (w.r.t 'Debian stable' because it's based on 'Debian testing') without making much compromise in stability. Also, #KDE was getting more leaner (with considerable decrease in memory consumption) and faster recently and at the same time makes it easier for users to migrate from Windows due to its similar look and feel.

Scribus


Scribus is a cross-platform (works on GNU/Linux, Microsoft Windows, macOS, etc) Free and Open Source software for Desktop Publishing which initially only had support for latin languages. It's the developers of a community project funded by the Oman Government, called HOST-Oman (House of Open Source Technologies - Oman), who introduced support for Non-Latin languages with Complex Text Layout in Scribus. And as a part of this development, Malayalam also got supported in Scribus version 1.5.3. Even though the proper support for Malayalam, including the most wanted feature called hyphenation, only came with version 1.5.4. But unfortunately this version is not officially released as stable yet. So in Janayugom GNU/Linux, we added the latest Scribus version available then, 1.5.6svn, with the help of Ubuntu PPA (a popular platform which provides packages and updates which are not available in the official repos).

Janayugom Edit


Janayugom Edit is a fork of Freaknz-qt, an ASCII to Unicode converter written in Qt (a popular C++ framework) by Kannan V M. It was inspired from and makes use of the map files from an ASCII-Unicode converter python program called Payyans, developed by #SMC. Since it's written in C++, it works significantly much faster than its popular alternative called TypeIT which is widely used by the Windows users. It also acts as a Unicode editor which can be used to type news and to save them as plain text files. There were valuable inputs from Hussain mash which helped in implementing text-cleanup process which reduces a lot of manual as well as repetitive efforts of the DTP workers. Later support was added to open PageMaker documents (a.k.a pmd files) directly inside Janayugom Edit, by making use of libraries called libpagemaker and librevenge (developed by the Document Liberation Project) with some necessary modifications and bugfixes, so that the use of PageMaker and Windows could be totally avoided. Ashokan mash helped a lot in testing the software and provided some valuable suggestions without which some bugs would haven't got fixed yet.

Implementation


Under the strong leadership of Rajaji Mathew Thomas (Former MLA, Janayugom Editor) and the management of Janayugom, all staffs got prepared to adapt themselves with the migration of entire software stack they were using for a long time. It has its difficulties to prepare the entire staff for a whole technology stack migration since they have to learn many new things and eventually have to forget what they got used to do for the past two decades. But the confidence and determination of Hussain mash and Ashokan mash helped Rajaji and the management team to go ahead with courage.

Training


Janayugom consists of more than 100 employees and nearly the same number of computers spread across 14 bureaus all over Kerala. For the migration to be seamless it was decided to conduct hands-on training for all the corresponding employees in three batches, each consisting of 5-day training. One day to learn the basic usage of operating system and to get started with understanding the whole software stack and the workflow, one day for graphics related training including GIMP and Inkscape and three days dedicated for Scribus training. First it was planned to conduct the training sessions in 3 zones (Thiruvananthapuram, Ernakulam and Kozhikkode), but later changed the plan to conduct all sessions at Thiruvananthapuram Head Office itself. First batch training was started on September 2, 2019. There was a special session focussed on the photographers and the graphics team, encouraging them to use Creative Commons license as well as to contribute to Wikimedia Commons. A separate GNU/Linux system administration training was also provided to the two system administrators of Janayugom in parallel. Apart from the core team, Saranya Chandran (MA Student from Sree Sankaracharya University of Sanskrit), Akhil Antony (Member of Kerala Sasthra Sahithya Parishad) and Anupa Ann Joseph (Free Software enthusiast and advocate who played a key-role in Women Hackathon programs conducted by ICFOSS, currently working at River Valley Technologies) also helped in managing the hands-on training sessions.

Operating System Installation


Before starting the training sessions, we installed Janayugom GNU/Linux on all computers required for training. After completing the first batch training on September 6, we travelled across all districts in Kerala to install the operating system in all Janayugom bureaus. This was completed within one week time and before the second batch training scheduled to start on September 16. After second batch training employees started to gain more confidence and the trained employees began to design their individual papers assigned to them in Scribus.

Hardware & Networking


We migrated the file sharing server to GNU/Linux for seamless integration with the production environment. We used SSHFS filesystem to mount the network server on client computers for better file transfer access. Guidance from Akhil Varkey (one of our friends and a strong Free Software advocate) helped a lot in fixing various real-time issues regarding networking and system administration in general. We modified Janayugom Edit with network file management capabilities. This prevents accidental editing of a file which is active under another session. There were HP printers and Canon scanners most of which worked out of the box while some models like HP Laserjet 1020 Plus required some extra manual work.

Pioneers of Digital Freedom in News Publishing


According to what we know, Janayugom publications is the pioneers in the world in successfully implementing 100% Free Software for all the prepress processes in news publishing. We were very glad to help them in fulfilling this historical achievement. Even if there were attempts before, such as the one by Prajasakti in adopting Scribus (a Telugu daily newspaper in Andhra Pradesh which is no longer in circulation) with the help of Anil Kumar (one of the pioneers who attempted to add Malayalam support in Scribus) and ATPS (Appropriate Technology Promotion Society) as early as in 2013, no one was able to implement it successfully. From 2019 October 2 (150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi) onwards all the pages of Janayugom newspaper are prepared entirely in Free Software and after successfully continuing this process for one month, this news was officially announced by Pinarayi Vijayan, the Chief Minister of Kerala, to the world.

The Future


Kerala Media Academy organized a 2-day media summit on October 31st and November 1st at Mascot Hotel, Thiruvananthapuram, consisting of representatives of all popular newspapers in Kerala to explore the possibilities of Free Software in publishing. The summit was inaugurated by Fahad Al Zaidi, one of the core developers of the HOST-Oman project, who played significant role in adding support for non-latin languages in Scribus. He has offered all the support needed for further developments in Scribus. Another scribus developer named Ale Rimoldi has also offered help and he has already addressed many bugs related to the news publishing workflow. The summit also became the venue for the formation of a consortium consisting of the above mentioned representatives and IT experts to promote self-reliance in publishing. The consortium has promised to raise fund for further developments with the help of the Kerala Government who has assured full support to the project.

Attempts to ‘sanitise’ or ‘socially-engineer’ #Freesoftware communities are underway; it may mean that we’re winning the battle (causing stress among corporate giants), but we must also be clever and cautious about it

A symbolic donation challenge


Since you are reading this post I guess you are directly interested in the improvement of Diaspora*. As you probably know Diaspora* couldn't improve without the hard and enthusiastic work of the developers. That is why

I challenge you to give at least a symbolic €0.01/week amount to the Diaspora* developers


€0.01/week is not much. It just €0.52/year so probably you can easily afford that. I guess you throw away much more to buy some fancy junk you don't even need at all ;-)

Isn't €0.01/week too little?

Yes, it is symbolic, but it is much more than nothing.

Also it can be a lot if most of us are willing to join (especially if some of us are willing to give a bit more).

For example, imagine if just 1% of the currently registered users of the federation have been taking this challenge. That would mean about €65/week for the developers. Just 15% of the users that were active in the past 6 month could give €75/week this way. 70% of the monthly active users could give €105/week for the developers by this "symbolic" donation.

Of course, you are free and encouraged to give more. (I also do so.)

How to participate?
- Create an account at https://liberapay.com.
- Add some money to your wallet.
- Start directly donating the developers.

Please, also encourage others to join this cause by spreading the message and voting on the poll below.

Eine sehenswerte ARTE-Dokumentation über freie Software und freies Wissen. Die Bedeutung offener Software wird hier nicht anhand langweiliger Anwendungsbereiche wie Betriebssystemen oder Office-Software demonstriert, sondern anhand von Software in Prothesen, Herzschrittmachern, Maschinensteuerung, Saatgut usw. Richard Stallman kommt ebenfalls ausführlich zu Wort.

Und es geht nicht nur um Programmier-Codes. Ich hab dieser Tage beispielsweise ein paar Änderungen in Open Street Map vorgenommen. Wahrscheinlich werde ich da in nächster Zeit noch mehr machen. Es macht einfach riesig Spaß, an so einem Riesending kleine Dinge in der eigenen bekannten Umgebung zu optimieren, um dann auch selber davon zu profitieren. Ich nutze nämlich Locus Pro und Magic Earth am Handy, und beide basieren auf Open Street Map. Meine Änderungen kann ich also beim nächsten Karten-Update auch dort sehen. Das ist einfach ein tolles Gefühl.

Die Doku dauert ca. 1 Stunde.

Amazing heads-up article in local paper today about a free software/hardware project to literally save human lives.
The Open Artificial Pancreas System project is an open and transparent effort to make safe and effective basic Artificial Pancreas System (APS) technology widely available to more quickly improve and save as many lives as possible and reduce the burden of Type 1 diabetes.

#Linux und #FreeSoftware Deutschland, wir müssen über #Nationalismus reden. In den letzten Jahren lese ich vermehrt solche Aussagen in der deutschen Linux Szene, und als nicht-ethnisch deutsch, als zugezogener Migrant in Deutschland will ich jetzt mal vorführen, wie das auf mich wirkt. Folgende Aussage las ich :
„Ich fürchte, die Abhängigkeit von amerikanischen Unternehmen wird [...] eher zunehmen, als abnehmen.“
Solche Aussagen sehe ich vermehrt und sie suggerieren, dass der amerikanische Kapitalismus und deren Firmen so ein alleinstellendes Merkmal des Bösen und des Opportunismus hätten. Und es tut mir Leid, aber ich sehe darin einen tiefen Anti-Amerikanismus (ich unterstelle niemandem, dass das was Bewusstes ist -- manchmal sind solche Sachen einfach tief in der Erziehung drin). Es klingt so, als wäre das schlimmste daran, dass wir keinen Public Code for Public Money haben, dass der Amerikaner uns bespitzeln wird und uns mit proprietärer Software das Geld aus der Tasche zieht. So als ob der benevolente Europäer oder Deutsche da von seinem Wesen viel besser wäre und so was nie machen würde. So als wäre der Deutsche insgesamt ein demokratischerer Mensch als der Amerikaner. Und wenn ihr Nachrichten so framet, dann öffnet es Tür und Tor für gewisse Menschen, die das auch gesamtgesellschaftlich als ihre Auffassung von der Welt haben.

Nur mal so zur Info: Es war nicht der Amerikaner, der politischen Druck auf Linux in der Stadt München gemacht hat. Es war nicht der Amerikaner, der wie ein Despot Unix/Linux aus Niedersachsen verbannt hat, den Bürgern darüber keine Rechenschaft ablegt (!) und selbst Heise, dem Verlag in D was IT angeht, den Kommentar darüber verweigert! Es war nicht der Amerikaner, der in Berlin nach Ablauf der sowieso schon viel zu langen Unterstützung von Windows XP noch eine neue Lizenz für Updates gekauft hat. Wenn doch der Deutsche an sich (TM) moralisch so überlegen ist, warum schmeißt er das Geld immer Richtung Amerika? Die ganzen vermeintlich so korrupten und unfähigen Länder im Süden Europas wie Spanien und Italien machen uns hier in Deutschland vor, wie Public Code for Public Money geht. Die italienische Armee (!) hat ein besseres Verständnis darüber, dass LibreOffice Geld spart und besser fürs Gemeinwohl ist, als jede deutsche Stadtverwaltung. Die Regierung von Extremadura, einer bäuerlichen Provinz in Spanien, hat ein besseres Verständnis darüber, dass Public Code Public Money sein muss als jede deutsche Metropole. Ein amerikanisches Red Hat hat viel mehr für Public Code weltweit getan, als das ach so deutsche SuSe, was sich wie ein verzweifelter Cracksüchtiger seit Anfang der Nuller Jahre vor jede nächstbestbietende IT Firma schmeißt (amerikanische überwiegend :D ) und sogar Verträge mit Microsoft hatte.

Und was die Sicherheit und den angeblichen Imperialismus angeht... Erinnert sich noch jemand, als es irgendwelche medienwirksamen Untersuchungen über die Bespitzelung von Angela Merkel gab und wir dann lauter geschwärzte Dokumente lesen durften? Und ob wir nach NSU und Waffenexporten an Tyrannen wirklich den moralischen Zeigefinger erheben sollten was Regierung und Sicherheit angeht, sei mal dahingestellt. Relevanter noch sind die ganzen Kameras auf Bahnhöfen usw. Hat glaub ich auch nicht der Amerikaner installiert, sondern wir selber.

Was will ich damit sagen? Freie Software ist transnational, kooperativ. Hört auf, den moralischen Zeigefinger zu erheben! Was Apple und Microsoft in IT machen, machen Aldi, Lidl oder VW in anderen Ländern auch. Kapitalismus funktioniert so, egal ob im Vorstand ein Deutscher oder ein Amerikaner sitzt. Freie Software funktioniert anders. Hypothetisch haben ein Schotte, eine Amerikanerin, eine Inderin und ein Deutscher an den Programmen gearbeitet, die ich gerade kostenlos nutze, um das hier verfassen zu dürfen. Nationalismus macht diese Art der Kooperation kaputt.

Weg mit dem Nationalismus in Freier Software! Wir brauchen transnationale, transkulturelle Kooperation!

UNICEF Request for expression of Interest (REOI) for Open Source Technology Solutions for children


In hope that upload filters are not yet engaged, I quote quite extensively from above link:
UNICEF invites expressions of interest to receive funding from the UNICEF Innovation Fund (IF). The Fund provides investment-style funding for early-stage, open source technology solutions that address the most pressing challenges faced by children and young people. The core motivation of the IF is to identify "clusters" or portfolios of initiatives around emerging technology, so that UNICEF can both shape markets and also learn about and guide these technologies to benefit children.

We invest in solutions clustered around $100billion industries in frontier technology spaces, such as: blockchain, UAVs, virtual and augmented reality, machine learning, data science, and artificial intelligence. Our funding is not necessarily limited to the above. We are interested in companies that apply tech in new, groundbreaking, ways that are scalable and globally applicable. If you are aligned with our general criteria, we want to hear from you.
