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.


To enable scrolling with middle click all you have to do is :
edit -> preferences
go to the advanced tab, and check “use autoscrolling

it is working under ubuntu linux 9.04

Ubuntu: first things after install

Posted: 16 March 2009 in English, Ubuntu

I installed ubuntu, now what ?

I asked myself the same question today, after a clean Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 install

So i’ve decided to keep a big one line install command (aka donwload the world!) just to make things easier

Here it is

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get install vim banshee gnome-do-plugins
fusion-icon emerald compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported compizconfig-settings-manager openssh-server
flashplugin-nonfree padevchooser wallpaper-tray wine gparted

i ‘ll updating the above one line command regularly

this is an easy way to download multiple file (batch download) from anywhere including rapidshare with or without premium accounts using command line.

Create a file named “down.txt” and paste the rapidshare links there, one link per line.

Next create a bash file named “multidown” and paste the following in it, replacing the “YourUsername” and “YourPassword” with your data :

for i in $(cat down.txt); do
wget   -nc  --user=YourUsername  --password=YourPassword "$i"

then alter permissions for this fileto make it executable

chmod u+x multidown

and run it


or you can also put a launcher in your desktop ;)

Nice !!! what to do now ??

Just continue reading .. ;)

i use ubuntu hardy alpha 4 and i already have installed master git
here is how i installed mousepoll and showmouse plugin:

1) run “Alt+F2” and type “gksudo gnome-terminal
this will open gnome-terminal with superuser priviledges
2) type :

mkdir compiz_plugins
cd compiz_plugins

3) clone both plugins through git :

git clone git:// mousepoll
git clone git:// showmouse

4 )

cd mousepoll
BUILD_GLOBAL=true make install
cd ..


cd showmouse
BUILD_GLOBAL=true make install


i hope this helps you

Important : you need master git for both plugins to work !!

Master git is the latest version of compiz.

If you are looking for a way to install compiz fusion from git take a look at this (look at Makefusion script)

Note : if you are going to use makefusion script to install compiz then you don’t need this , as both plugins are already in plugins-extra category announced the release of Compiz 0.7.0

What’s new :

1) Multi-display support.
2) A KDE4 port of the kde-window-decorator has been added
3) Frequent crashes of kde-window-decorator for some people have been fixed.
4) Middle and right click actions have been made configurable in gtk-window-decorator.
5) Gtk-window-decorator now optionally allows mouse wheel title bar actions, such as shading.
For complete changelog about compiz 0.7.0 look at the official announce here.

    How to install (Git) :

    git clone git:// compiz0.7.0

    of course you need git to be installed ;)

    Also there is a script called “Makefusion” which you can use to install compiz and compiz-fusion plugins (main extra unsupported atlantis2 bs cubedbus filedebug freewins fireflies maximumize mousegestures photowheel rubik screensaver stars snowglobe shelf visualevent wallpaper).

    This script is for ubuntu users 7.10 and below.You can find the script and more instructions about it here and here.

    If you have Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04 Alpha4 installed there is already an update available!

    Just run the update-manager or run in terminal “sudo apt-get update” and install the available updates :D
