How to Install wxPython Phoenix in Linux Mint, Python 3.5

(GUI for Python)

I had to add these packages:

  • sudo apt-get install libgtk-3-dev
  • sudo apt-get install libwebkit-dev
  • sudo apt-get install libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev 

As you can see in the following picture, this command worked for me:

sudo python3.5 -m pip install --trusted-host wxpython.org -v -U --pre -f http://wxpython.org/Phoenix/snapshot-builds/ wxPython_Phoenix

 

 

Good luck!

Bluetooth Handsfree and Inverted F antenna 

I bought a new hands-free from an online shop. Unfortunately, when I tried my first call with this device I found that the microphone is not working. I was thinking about returning the product but at the end I decided to try to fix that. As you can see in the following picture, the repair was straightforward. When I was fixing the polarity of the electret microphone, I found more interesting thing on the PCB - the invertered F antenna for bluetooth band (2.4 GHz) which is widely used in mobile devices. This particular antenna is connected to the source via coplanar waveguide with ground.
