¿como encender Flash de la cámara en uso?

Estoy intentando activar el flash de la cámara. el código siguiente funciona para activarlo, pero en mi caso necesito que permanezca activo cuando se ejecute otra vez la cámara(desde una librería u otra aplicación ) y no se apague o que en la siguiente ejecución de la cámara me aparezca la excepción por “Camara ocupada”

lo estuve pensado ¿se podría cambiar los parámetros de una cámara en ejecución si no tengo la variable de Camera o CameraManager con la que fue ejecutada ?

camera =; Camera.Parameters parameters = camera.getParameters(); parameters.setFlashMode(Camera.Parameters.FLASH_MODE_ON); camera.setParameters(parameters); camera.startPreview(); 

No puedo usar CameraManager.setTorchMode() ya que manejo api menor a 23

Ext4 formatted flash drives lose files when the drive is removed from the PC on 19.04

I’m using PopOS 19.04, although the issue was also present on vanilla Ubuntu 19.04 and caused me to lose some important files.

Whenever I use a flash drive for Linux, format it as ext4, add files, and then remove the drive from the USB port, all of the files disappear. The only way that I have recently found to make them not disappear is to right click and hit “remove safely”. I can do this every time if I have to but I don’t have to do it for Windows, what is different? Is it just a bug?

Gparted can’t create partition table because flash drive is read-only

Overall, I want to make a live usb drive that installs Windows 10. Originally I did that with unetbootin which seemed to work fine. Then I tried booting from that USB-stick but nothing showed up in the boot menu. So I checked again with gparted and it says that the entire stick has no partitions:

Unallocated partition

I get this when trying to add a new partition:

No partition table found

And this when trying to create a new partition table:

Error 1

When pressing “Retry” I get this:

Error 2

I’ve found a solution online where I delete the first megabyte with mkusb of the stick but that didn’t change anything.

Did I brick my USB-stick or can I still save it?

Ubuntu 14.04 stuck at boot screen and i can’t boot windows from flash drive

Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit , stuck on the purple screen that shows the word Ubuntu and loading , and nothing happens after that , i tried to use a flash-drive that have windows 10 , trying to remove Ubuntu and install windows , but when i press f9 and select the flash drive it does nothing and enters the normal boot of Ubuntu , i checked the boot order in the bios .
