RAW (.cr2) Image Preview in Gnome Nautilus using gnome-raw-thumbnail. Set your monitor-refresh-rate with xrandr « PiHalf. 2009/11/16 at 20:08 | Posted in Linux Hints | Leave a comment Tags: addmode, monitor, newmode, rate, refresh, xrandr Currently I’m using a really old 21” monitor and (using kubuntu 9.10) I got a really shitty refresh rate of 60 Hz I didn’t know better until a friend told me that this monitor should have at least some more Hz to go.

So I tried to figure out what went wrong and why I could not change the frequency in the “System Settings”. After looking a bit around a bit I found the solution: 1) calculate the needed modelines for the wanted resolution (1152×864) and refresh-rate (75) me@linux~$ cvt 1152 864 75 2) add new mode for the monitor with xrandr me@linux~$ xrandr --newmode "1152x864_75.00" 104.00 1152 1224 1344 1536 864 867 871 905 -hsync +vsync 3) add new mode to the devices’ list me@linux~$ xrandr --verbose --addmode VGA-0 "1152x864_75.00" 4) activate new mode me@linux~$ xrandr --output VGA-0 --mode "1152x864_75.00" That did the trick!

Since Finansiell ID-Teknik BID AB (a swedish company that provides e-legitimation (BankID)) does not support 64-bit Linux they have decided that you are not even allowed to download their application anymore..

Which is stupid, since it works on 64-bit Linux. So from now on we'll have to fake running on 32 bit to even be allowed to download it.. Anyhow, to get your (previously downloaded) bankid up and running on your 64-bit Linux in Firefox you have to install and also for the required shared 32-bit libraries: First install the bankid application (after unpacking it of course) by using their installscript $ sudo . /install.x.y.z.sh i Then install ia32 and nspluginwrapper to be able to wrap the 32-bit plugin so it can run on 64-bit $ sudo apt-get install ia32 $ sudo apt-get install nspluginwrapper $ sudo nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugin/libplugins.so Then you should be good to go.

And btw, this should work on a number of 32-bit plugins, not only BankID. Handelsbanken inloggning med sladd 64-bit. SmartCards - FriBID.

I recently purchased a Canon Pixma MP495 wireless printer for just $30 at MicroCenter. It was a great deal that I couldn’t pass up. The MP495 wireless printer typically costs $80, but I bought it for only $30 because it was purchased along with a PC desktop system. The fun part was setting up the wireless printer to the network. I downloaded the printer drivers directly from Canon’s website, and configured the printer from my MacBook Air. This article will cover how to setup and add the Canon Pixma MP495 on Ubuntu Linux. Printer Driver The printer setup on the Ubuntu Linux desktop system, as it turned out, wasn’t such a big deal after all.

Trackback Having the “/home” directory tree on it’s own partition has several advantages, the biggest perhaps being that you can reinstall the OS (or even a different distro of Linux) without losing all your data.

You can do this by keeping the /home partition unchanged and reinstalling the OS which goes in the “/” (root) directory, which can be on a seperate partition. But you, like me, did not know this when you first installed Ubuntu, and have not created a new partition for “/home” when you first installed Ubuntu. Despair not, it is really simple to move “/home” to its own partition. First, create a partition of sufficient size for your “/home” directory. Next, mount the new partition:$mkdir /mnt/newhome $sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/hda5 /mnt/newhome (You have to change the “hda5″ in the above to the correct partition label for the new partition. Make sure everything copied over correctly. Cursorily verify that everything works right. Create a custom launcher for Unity in Ubuntu 11.04 « it { should be_useful } I have a few applications that I have installed without going through the Ubuntu repositories. One such application is RubyMine, which is not necessarily “installed” as such – it’s just a Java program that is downloaded.

What I did pre-Natty was create a new menu item, which Gnome-Do would find. Easy. However, I now use Natty and Unity, and it’s not immediately obvious how you go about adding a new application launcher into the dash. After some digging around, it’s actually quite simple… 1. Create a desktop launcher (or shortcut) for your application. For RubyMine, mine looks like this: 2. Now we just need to move the file and make sure we have the right permissions and owner. 3. Open the Unity dash, and under Applications you should find your application launcher.

As you probably already know, the Linux Kernel has a pretty significant power issue starting with version 2.6.38 which hasn't been fixed yet (this includes version 3.0.0). This bug causes power consumption to go up by nearly 30% (and hence a shorter battery life) as reported by Phoronix which is pretty bad for netbook / laptop users. Some users are also reporting that this causes their laptops to overheat. Well, Phoronix has found a way around this bug (you can read the article here) so below I'll tell you the exact steps you must follow to finally fix this issue. The instructions below will force Active-State Power Management to be enabled by editing the GRUB2 config file and while this should work for most computers, it will not work for all. Also, Phoronix notes that "if your system's BIOS/hardware is in bad shape, you may hit system hangs" though it seems this is not something very common: But anyway, use this at your own risk!

PART ONE: INSTALLING WINE AND STEAM By: Brandon Powell The main reason for not switching to Ubuntu or any other Linux distribution is games. People like to play their video games. Now is the age of the Linux desktop. More and more games are getting to the point in which they can be played under Linux. One of the popular game services is Steam. This how-to will cover how to install wine and Steam. It will work under any version of Ubuntu. While wine is downloading go to and download the installer. The installer will be an MSI file, not an EXE. Wine and Steam are now both installed. The other way we create a shell script to do it. Save the file and change the permissions on it. Now to run Steam, just click on that file. OMG! Ubuntu!

Fix Ubuntu 10.10 Suspend/Hibernate Not Working Bug | Code Central. I own an Asus N73JQ laptop, the spec is top notch. Since Windows has been long gone from my candidate OS, I installed Ubuntu 10.10 right away. So far the result is quite amazing. Smooth, reliable, and it feels just right. Although the OS itself is very impressive, I have 2 major issues with the hardware: (1) Function key that switches to external monitor does not work; (an update on the external monitor issue can be found here) (2) Suspend/Hibernate does not work.

I have not found a solution for (1), which remains unsolved. I have, however, found a solution for (2). Create a script under /etc/pm/sleep.d/.
