Zoneminder configuration for Floureon 1080P


Recently I bought Floureon 1080P 18x. I was planning to use it to test an idea about car license plate recognition. The camera came with software for Windows which was no go for me because I was planning to use Ubuntu linux. After spending some time looking for a linux software to control the cam I found Zoneminder. It is free and open source but it lacked support for Floureon cameras. Long story short, I had to make some additions to Zoneminder in order to make it work.

Syntax highlighting for Rust language for Linux KDE's Kate


At this point (April 2015) Rust is in 1.0.0-beta and there are no complete IDE integration (either Eclipse or Idea) so we need to go back to basics (no, no, no, not vim/emacs, relax :-) ) and use Kate for editing source files.

Frankly, so far I've never used Kate for programming and was totaly unaware how to configure it and I had some trouble setting Rust's syntax highlighting so here is the short explanation how to do it:

1. Download rust.xml from here:

Take care to save it in it's original XML form, not as HTML (as I did somehow the first time…)

2. Copy it in ~/.kde/share/apps/katepart/syntax/

3. Restart Kate

(btw, I use Kubuntu 14.04, other distros may have different location for the SH files…)
