OpenWRT: TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 Wi-Fi On/Off Switch Button

TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 has a very usefull hardware switch button, which allows to turn on/off wi-fi. But OpenWRT does not support this feature out of the box (corresponding ticket).

Here is a method how to enable it.

1. Create script (e.g. /root/bin/wifi_on_off.sh) with the following content:

HW_SWITCH_STATE=$(cat /sys/kernel/debug/gpio | grep gpio-17 | awk '{print $6}')
UCI_WIFI_DISABLED=$(uci get wireless.@wifi-device[0].disabled)
if [ "lo" == ${HW_SWITCH_STATE} ]; then
elif [ "hi" == ${HW_SWITCH_STATE} ]; then
    exit 1
    uci set wireless.@wifi-device[0].disabled=${HW_SWITCH_STATE}
    uci commit wireless

2. Add exec permissions to the script and create cron job:

*/1    *    *    *    *        /root/bin/wifi_on_off.sh 2>&1 >/dev/null

3. Enable cron autostart and start it:

/etc/init.d/cron enable
/etc/init.d/cron start

Note: Disadvantage of this method is that switching the button will not react immediately, but with maximum 1 minute delay in the worth case.

Vim + cscope + NERD Tree

1. Create needed directories for vim in your home:

mkdir ~/.vim
cd ~/.vim
mkdir bundle

2. Install pathogen for easy installing further vim plugins:

cd ~/.vim
mkdir ~/.vim/autoload
curl -Sso ~/.vim/autoload/pathogen.vim https://raw.github.com/tpope/vim-pathogen/master/autoload/pathogen.vim

3. Install NERD Tree vim plugin:

cd ~/.vim/bundle
git clone https://github.com/scrooloose/nerdtree.git

4. Go to your project dir:

cd /path/to/project/dir

5. Create cscope.files list for further generating cscope database. For example:

find . -name "*.java" -or -name "*.c" -or -name "*.cpp" -or -name "*.h" > cscope.files

6. Generate the Cscope database (full doc):

cscope -b -q

7. Download cscope_maps.vim to the vim plugin directory:

cd ~/.vim/plugin
wget http://cscope.sourceforge.net/cscope_maps.vim

8. Optionally you may add key mapping to the .vimrc file. For example:

nmap <c-f> :cs find g <c-r>=expand("<cword>")<cr><cr>

Now just press Ctrl+F on the function call to see its definition(s).

Note: possibly you will need to run vim in your project dir and execute “ :cs add cscope.out” for adding cscope database.

Setting NERDTree width

To set NERDTree file browser width, just add the following line to teh .vimrc:

let g:NERDTreeWinSize = 60

where 60 is width value. Change it as you like.

Microsoft Fixit Tool

Today I have met a very strange problem: I've accidentally installed Intel Pro Set Bluetooth driver instead of Atheros' one. They are on the same download page for HP ProBook 4370s family, so it was not hard to make mistake. When I started removing Intel Pro Set driver, I was getting error. The software required to check, if the device is properly connected before removing.

The software removal you are attempting cannot 
proceed. To remove this software, please first be sure
that Intel(R) wireless adapter is correctly installed 
and enabled.

But thereis no Intel Bluetooth device on the laptop, so connecting is impossible.
I have found very nice solution - Microsoft Fixit, which helped me.

Geany and geany-plugins standalone installation

In order to build geany and geany-plugins of a particular version and to install them without affecting local system there is a possibility to make a standalone installation.

To build Geany:

export GEANY_INSTALL_DIR=/path/to/dir
./configure --prefix=${GEANY_INSTALL_DIR}
make && make install

To build Geany plugins:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=${GEANY_INSTALL_DIR}/lib/pkgconfig
./configure --prefix ${GEANY_INSTALL_DIR} --with-geany-libdir=${GEANY_INSTALL_DIR}/lib

in order to build single plugin, e.g. pairtaghighligher:

./configure --disable-all-plugins --enable-pairtaghighlighter --prefix=${GEANY_INSTALL_DIR} --with-geany-libdir=/${GEANY_INSTALL_DIR}/lib

Introducing Notes


I am happy to announce a new section of my site - Notes.

Very often we need to look through several pages of forum to find appropriate solution. Sometimes we write useful scripts of long commands with multiple pipes etc. Notes is a place to store a brief tips, links, scripts, solutions, which are result of practice and experience.

It is my second attempt to organize my notes. The first one was also powered by dokuwiki, but not public, and as a result they were not designed well and comfortably classified. Then I closed them and only backup left. I felt that I need such notes and decided to make them public. I hope they will help somebody besides me not to waste time.
