cordova run android Error: spawn EACCES (MacOS)

When executing "cordova run android", I got error message: "Error: spawn EACCES". By using --verbose:
$ cordova run android --verbose ... Running command: "/Applications/Android" -p /Users/myuserid/cordova/myApp/platforms/android wrapper -b /Users/myuserid/cordova/myApp/platforms/android/wrapper.gradle Error: spawn EACCES

When I checked the access permission of /Applications/Android, I found that there is no execute permission. The solution for the error is just by modifying the access permission:
$ sudo chmod +x /Applications/Android

That's all :)

Realtime depth estimation using monocular camera

Just for playing around, I did a small modification to the from the github of CVPR 2017 paper "Unsupervised Monocular Depth Estimation with Left-Right Consistency" (original source code:, so that it takes input image directly from a camera. To retrieve images from the camera without losing much performance, I refer to the articles from here and here.

I used i7 6700K + Nvidia GTX 970 + Logicool webcam C910:

It appears that although the trained model was Kitti, which is quite different from the scene from my apartment window, it still worked to a certain extent. If you are interested, you can download the modification: and a small utility for retrieving the image:

To run the modification, download the original code and the ready-to-use model by following the instruction from the original Author ( here ). Then copy and to the same folder as the Finally, execute:
$ python ./ --checkpoint_path ./model/model_kitti

Note that it requires Python 2.7, TensorFlow 1.x, OpenCV >= 2.4 (I used OpenCV 3.2), and of course, a camera.

That's all :)

TensorFlow: could not create cudnn handle: CUDNN_STATUS_INTERNAL_ERROR

When running the TensorFlow's object-detection model inference with my own dataset, I got the following error (with Nvidia GTX 970, CUDA 8, TensorFlow 1.2.1 through pip, and Ubuntu 16.04):
2017-08-15 21:18:06.254989: E tensorflow/stream_executor/cuda/] could not create cudnn handle: CUDNN_STATUS_INTERNAL_ERROR 2017-08-15 21:18:06.255027: E tensorflow/stream_executor/cuda/] could not destroy cudnn handle: CUDNN_STATUS_BAD_PARAM 2017-08-15 21:18:06.255036: F tensorflow/core/kernels/] Check failed: stream->parent()->GetConvolveAlgorithms(&algorithms)
Solution from, by enabling the GPU's allow_growth flag, solved my problem:
config = tf.ConfigProto()
config.gpu_options.allow_growth = True
sess = tf.Session(config=config)
That's all :)

Installing Chrome on Ubuntu (16.04)

I recently installed Linux alongside Windows (dual boot). When I tried to install Chrome by downloading the latest installer from here, I got the following error:

Tensorflow 1.1 (GPU) on Windows with cuDNN 6.0: No module named '_pywrap_tensorflow'

Short notes: if you got trouble importing tensorflow 1.1 (GPU) on Windows with cuDNN 6.0, try to use cuDNN 5.1 and ensure that the MSVC++2015 redistributable has been installed.


That's all :)

Update Anaconda Navigator 1.5.0

I had trouble updating Anaconda Navigator from 1.5.0 to 1.5.2 in Windows 10. While there was a message indicating that the update was successful, the version remains. Gladly found the solution here: :
  1. Open command prompt
  2. Execute:
    C:¥> conda update --all --prefix <path_to_the_installed_conda>
That's all :)

Android Studio was unable to find a valid JVM

I obtained the following message when opening Android Studio 1.0.1 on Mac OSX Yosemite:
Android Studio was unable to find a valid JVM
Among some workarounds for the problem that I found in this Stackoverflow thread, I think the simplest one is by creating a small bash script that export the environment variable for the JVM and launch the Android Studio. For example, in my machine the JVM is located at /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_25.jdk, so the script looks like this:
#!/bin/bash export STUDIO_JDK=/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_25.jdk open /Applications/Android\

That's all :)
