Ian Barton on Google Photos Bug

Nobody is able to download Google Photos Without Losing location data from the EXIF. I was going to use rclone to make a backup copy of all my photos uploaded to Google (a topic we touched on in the last show). However, it seems if you try to do this, Google strips all the location information from the photos’ EXIF data. This is a bug that was reported to Google more than three years ago. (I’ll maybe try Google Takeout and see if it does the same.)


John Husband on Linux and Chromebook update

Yesterday I decided to turn Linux on my LENOVO IdeaPad Duet and have a play. I am not a Linux expert but have a basic understanding of how Linux works. Using the terminal I have installed Libre Office and Gimp and both packages loaded with no issues. Libre Office Writer runs well but I have not fully tested Gimp. Once you have downloaded the software it places them in a Linux app folder on the desktop where you can easily access them. I then discovered the following video that shows you how to add two Linux App Stores onto your Chromebook (Very easy video to follow) and allows downloading of software without using the Linux terminal. Although the guy who did the video does mention not all software downloaded from Linux App Stores will run on Chromebook as it is still in beta.
