Configuring Location Awareness Settings 5:12-6:58 Now the last thing we're going to look at in this lesson, deals with apps that are location aware. As you know, Windows 8 and Windows 10, both use a built-in Windows location provider that can supply apps with location data using several different mechanisms. And you need to decide whether the apps that you install from the Windows Store are allowed to access location information. This can be done by going into our Settings app, and then going to privacy, and then clicking on Location. Now at this point, you first of all have to decide whether or not you want the location service running or not.For privacy reasons, some people do not want the location service turned on. Other people really like the location service, because apps that are location aware can take advantage of it. As you can see, the location service for this device is currently on. If we wanted to change this, we would click Change and then turn it off or on. We're going to leave it turned on for now. Now if we scroll down here with the location service turned on, we can decide which apps are allowed to accessthat location data. Some apps need it, other apps really don't. For example if I were to come down here to MSN Weather, I could turn the location service on. That way, I'll get weather reports that are appropriate for my current location. I can also turn location awareness on for search. That way when I run a search, say for a particular restaurant, it brings up restaurants that actually close to where I'm currently at. I can also turn location on for Windows Camera, in which case the approximate location will be included in the metadata for the camera pictures that I take. And I can also turn location awareness on for Windows Maps. So when I access Windows Maps, it will start off with my current location. Go ahead and close. Summary 6:59-7:08 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo, we talked about how to install, uninstall, and manage Windows Store applications. We also talked about how to configure location awareness settings for Windows apps. Installing Linux Software 0:00-0:28 In this demonstration, we're going to practice installing new software packages on a Linux system.There are two different commands that you can do this with. One is called the yum command. The other one is called apt-get. We'll look at both of these in this demonstration. Just understand that some distributions, such as this Fedora Linux system, will use the yum command, while other distributions, such as Ubuntu Linux, will use the apt-get command. yum Command 0:29-4:13 Let's begin by looking at yum. Yum is actually a really useful utility, but before we start working with itwe do need to switch to our root user account, because you have to have administrative level privileges to the system to manage software.

So I'm going to use the su command, switch user, to switch to my root user account, and I do have to authenticate as my root user. Now I'm switched to my root user. Now I can manage software. Yum is really cool. It does two key things that make it almost indispensable for someone

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
