virtualbox – drops iphone sync

iphone sync

I was updating an iPhone 4G to iOS7on Ubuntu 13.10 through virtualbox and iTunes running on Windows XP. You have to pay attention during this process and re-attach the USB device whenever the process restarts the iPhone. Alternatively you may create a rule to attach the iPhone automatically.

After updating, during sync, the iPhone couldn’t finish restoring user’s data. Ubuntu was trying to mount the device even when the rule was in place on virtualbox to attach the iPhone automatically. It seems that they both compete to mount the device, causing the sync to be dropped. Finally I noticed that Ubuntu was creating a ‘Documents on iPhone’ mount point, I unmounted this from nautilus and restarted the sync on virtualbox and it all went well at last.



Fedora 15 – Create new html page with Google Plugin for Eclipse does nothing

I’ve just installed Eclipse Indigo and Google Plugin for Eclipse. Then, I created a new -empty- Web Application Project and added a Module and Entry Point successfully, but when I tried to add a new HTML Page to contain my module I couldn’t. The create new html page wizard did nothing when I pressed the finish button. I switched Eclipse to previous version -helios- but the same problem occurred. Even tried to switch java jdk from openjdk to oracle(sun) jdk but didn’t work.
An issue has been reported in the gwt issue tracker but has not been addressed. Meanwhile…Is there a way to install a previous version of Google Plugin for Eclipse?

I’m going to see if the same problem occurs on Ubuntu 10.10 …. 🙂
Unfortunately it works in Ubuntu… same Eclipse and Google Plugin version 😦
It works if you use GWT 2.2.0, you can download previous versions from here.
Or you could just add a simple html page and paste the following contents replacing your module’s name appropriately, “samples” in this case

<!doctype html>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript" src="samples/samples.nocache.js"></script>
