This is an annoying nvidia bug with the latest Firefox (Shiretoko) version 3.5.
To fix it you need to load the flash plugin before firefox.
To do this you have to find the firefox startup script (mine is in /usr/lib/firefox-3.5.1/firefox.sh) and add the following line at the beginning of it (be careful to not wipe the “#!/bin/sh” line!):

export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libGL.so.1

Now you can have full-screen videos again in youtube ;)

Here is how i create a package list with the current software installed :

dpkg --get-selections > package.list

To restore the list after a new clean install and automatically re-install the packages :

sudo dpkg --set-selections < package.list
 sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade

As simple as that!

This is the first post directly through my desktop!

Really !!

If you use gnome you can do it also. All you have to do is install gnome-blog package.

For ubuntu users do :

sudo apt-get install gnome-blog

and then follow this instructions to blog.

*editing from within wordpress now :

Gnome-blog rocks! I wish it supported categories and tags.
