Restore Gnome Default Panels

Many times we screw our gnome desktop panels accidentally. I found a very easy solution to revert them.
Just open terminal and type.

gconftool-2 --shutdown
gconftool  --recursive-unset /apps/panel
rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
pkill gnome-panel

But remember this is not the case when gnome panels get scrambled automatically (Which seems to be a consistent case in Ubutnu 10.04). You can simple refresh you gnome panels by doing.

killall gnome-panel

Lucid Lynx – Free man’s Mac

No matter how much I hate Apple and Macintosh for their marketing strategies, but I always appreciate innovation and consistency. Although price is also a factor.

No matter how much you bid to pay but you could never estimate the price of universal compatibility and top class user experience with the availability of option at every stage and still rock solid consistent performance that what is any GNU/Linux system is about and Ubuntu is a star team.

With their new star performer. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS aka Lucid Lynx is out and I can safely say that no matter how difficult is seem at first but impossible is nothing and Lucid Lynx is Free man’s Mac.

Urban Terror

This is a one great game. I tried it and I loved it. To all the counter-strike lovers who got shifted to GNU/Linux this is a life saver. I think there should be some variable to adjust the wall jump, power slide, and inhuman speed. I hope to find some good player skins colors.

Things I like:

  • GPL
  • Great maps
  • All OS support. πŸ™‚
  • Realistic guns and limited ammo magazines.
  • Primary, secondary and side arm weapon slot.
  • Variable damage system.
  • Wounds/Bandage, Medikit
  • Wounds affects performance
  • Stamina system.

Blogging from emacs

Emacs is my favorite editor and I mostly use this on my work. I am also
an occasional blogger. I feel uncomfortable going on my blog and write
something while on work because of various reasons. πŸ™‚

I found the solution for my problems in Emacs weblogger-mode. I can
draft, review, edit, improve, update and post all through my lovely
editor.

I love you emacs.

This post is prepared and posted through Emacs 23 on RHEL
5.1 through weblogger-mode.

Programming Republic of Perl

So I landed in Programming Republic of Perl.

I started with

“Wall continues to oversee further development of Perl and serves as the Benevolent Dictator for Life of the Perl project. His role in Perl is best conveyed by the so-called 2 Rules, taken from the official Perl documentation:

1. Larry is always by definition right about how Perl should behave. This means he has final veto power on the core functionality.
2. Larry is allowed to change his mind about any matter at a later date, regardless of whether he previously invoked Rule 1.

Got that? Larry is always right, even when he was wrong.”

I will keep you all updated about my emotions of learning Perl. πŸ˜€
