how to connect to your tablet using mtp

This is clearly explained here.
First check this out: are following packages installed?
I had to install necessary packages need for file managers:
# pacman -S gvfs-mtp gvfs-gphoto2
Now start up your file manager with gvfs support for instance Thunar up to check if your Android device is mounted.

If you are not lucky, I will repeat what I have done to get it working;
Checked if my Asus memo tablet  was noticed:

Device 0 (VID=0b05 and PID=7773) is a Asus Fonepad 7 (FE375CXG).
and a lot of other lines. You also can use lsusb to check.

I choose to install jmtpfs via packer
$packer -S jmtpfs
Created a mtp folder in /home/paul/

In Openbox I created a new keybinding keybind key="W-m" in .config/openbox/rc.xml with this as command:
xterm -e "jmtpfs ~/mtp"
 So after creating that and restarting openbox with
$openbox --restart

I start up Thunar. I now see in /homepaul/mtp/ two folders  Internal Storage and SD Card and the files can be copied etc.

Threesome , a nice variation of the Set Card game

I'm kind of addicted to the set card game. It is like most games a love/hate relationship. What boggles my mind is that most of the times you find a solution pretty easily and then you get stuck and are really at a loss.
This is a very simple version of it with 15 cards in stead of 12  en it is all made up of css and html code without any image files. Quite an achievement!!
It is very small and you can play it offline as long and as often as you want.
The game is hosted here and is 20 kb small.

Install a package in Void from local repo

source: post from Oliver:

I'm hardly an expert and this may be all wrong but if anyone wants to try an xbps pkg based on the arch PKGBUILD it's at!gotQTYgR!MFiQKwUYf … JmAbQAqWqo
You'll need to add it to a local repo
$ md5sum ttf-droid-20121017_1.noarch.xbps 
c62981b46136953bf197464671793dfa  ttf-droid-20121017_1.noarch.xbps

$ mkdir ~/localrepo
$ cp ttf-droid-20121017_1.noarch.xbps ~/localrepo
$ sudo xbps-rindex -a ~/localrepo/ttf-droid-20121017_1.noarch.xbps
$ sudo  xbps-install -S --repository=~/localrepo ttf-droid

Void and voidbang if you have mount problems using udevil

Be sure to have yourself added to the storage group:

# usermod -aG storage paul

Reboot or relogin for reloading group settings.

You also may have to add a polkit rule in

with this content:
 polkit.addRule(function(action, subject) {
     var YES = polkit.Result.YES;
     var permission = {
     // only required for udisks1:
     "org.freedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount": YES,
     "org.freedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount-system-internal": YES,
     "org.freedesktop.udisks.luks-unlock": YES,
     "": YES,
     "": YES,
     // only required for udisks2:
     "org.freedesktop.udisks2.filesystem-mount": YES,
     "org.freedesktop.udisks2.filesystem-mount-system": YES,
     "org.freedesktop.udisks2.encrypted-unlock": YES,
     "org.freedesktop.udisks2.eject-media": YES,
     "org.freedesktop.udisks2.power-off-drive": YES
     if (subject.isInGroup("storage")) {
         return permission[];

Voidbang multiboot problem

I booted  multiboot into Arch from  a grub.cfg that was made by / from out avoidbang installation and got kernel panic after an update.

#xbps-install -f util-linux 
and reboot solved it for me.
