Install Steam on Ubuntu 16.04

SteamI tried to install Steam on Ubuntu 16.04 about a month ago. I got a shortcut onto the desktop. I had the hourglass going and I was thinking it was going to load but nothing. I just could not get it past that point. There is all sorts of help on the Net and  all I can say is – persist. Eventually you will get there like I did. I found it easier to install Steam through Terminal:

sudo apt-get install steam

I had followed the instructions on the Linux Config site. Plenty of stuff downloaded through Terminal and then I thought I was there but it just wouldn’t work. I had it loaded on Windows so I just left it. You can also look on the site It’s F.O.S.S.. That site has some other ideas you can try.

steaminstallToday, I decided to try and get it going and a line of code on the ask Ubuntu site was the thing which got Steam updating, functioning and allowing me to log into my account:

env LD_PRELOAD=’/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6′ steam steam://rungameid/730

It took a while but versions of Linux vary, laptop hardware varies and with Linux you have to ensure you have all the bits you need in order for software to work. Happy now!

Colour your world

 

PANTONE 15-0343 Greenery is the colour of the year for 2017. Pantone is  one of the significant industry standards for colours and colour integrity. They are there to make money, yes, but they are also there to set standards, create ideas, inspire design in a visual world and all of that is important with technology. It’s not just about fashion. It’s about film, user interfaces, video software, gaming.  Just think about it. How much of our technological world is determined by our visual experience and much of that is related to authentic colour and the use of colour? The Pantone matching system is here on cal-print.com.  Printed colours and digital colours are not identical. Colour charts can be used to get the best match . Mixedmedia has some troubleshooting guides. Even engineers and scientists should worry about colour and there is a good research paper about that here by Rogowitz and Treinish at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Center. Colour matters in a visual world.

Halloween Science

If you like to mark the occasion of Halloween with something a bit different, then this video shows some interesting little things to do which allow you to combine science with Halloween events. Making things glow tends to be something which attracts attention and creates curiosity.
witch icon IconArchive has a nice selection of Halloween icons to decorate your creations.

Never turn a page again

This video is only 1 minute 25 seconds and yet, by the end of it I had forgotten what it was meant to be about. Lost in learning! Lost in intrigue. Lost in the wonder of all that was occurring. It’s all physics. It’s a video which makes people want to know and find things out. On top of that, it is funny. It’s a carefully planned, well thought out , high impact lesson. It would have taken brainstorming, discussion, trial runs. There would have been a feedback loop and collaboration. It’s a video which arouses a lot of curiosity and engages the audience. A one minute video can do a lot!

Hatching chickens in glass

This Japanese school has allowed its students to really find out about life. It seems to be being done as a reality TV show where there are people looking on and commenting as though they are on a panel. It’s an interesting way of getting science into the foreground and making it central to normal daily activities. The students seem to be engrossed and excited. I can remember we grew broad beans and that was exciting! Growing your own chicken would be extraordinary in every sense of the word. I wonder what happens to the chickens next and who looks after them? This is taking ICT to a whole new level.
