This is my second time resetting my Gnome (version 2/classic) Settings to its default. I don’t know why should that condition appear (again). If doesn’t, I will get my title bar disappear when I press [Alt+Space], or maybe other symptoms.
But, it is more easy now after I got the tutorial about how to do it (resetting my gnome settings) from my friend. Here it is, a simple way to reset our gnome settings. Do this command on your home directory under terminal.
rm -rf .gnome .gnome2 .gconf .gconfd .metacity
This will remove the gnome settings which commonly appear on that 5 directories, and when we login back, we will get our gnome settings back as our first login time.
Everyone knows that every localized wordpress pack you download, usually, will use its own language in its back-end (admin a.k.a. wp-admin) or front-end user interface. Ex: If I download Indonesia-enabled wordpress, the user interface will use Indonesian as its default language. However, sometimes, with that localization, it makes the user interface not as user-friendly as in its original language (English), especially for the back-end section.
In this situation, we could switch back to use English for our wordpress back-end using a plugin called Plugins Language Switcher. With this plugin, we could switch our back-end language easily, just like changing the wordpress configuration sets.
The use of Terminal is quite dominant in Linux, especially for someone who is not concerned with graphical interface (e.g: Linux used as Server). Terminal‘s function is like Command Prompt‘s function when in Windows, executing text based command. (Distro I used: Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala)
Usually, when executing a command in Terminal, if we -as linux user- don’t know the use of history command, we will call again and again the command although it’s the same command. So, if we would like to fast recalling our previous command, we could use the history command and query previous command.
Figure 1 is a way of executing the history command (without any arguments). As we seen, it generates list of commands we have executed. The left side (number) indicating the queued command number and the right one indicating the executed command. We could recall the command in the generated list using:
Figure 2 is a sample of recalling the command.
!25 will recall the command number 25 as seen in Figure 1.
But, the question is, “Should we call history when we want to recall a command?” Actually NO! We could recall using more simple query with just using a key combination (Ctrl+R) and write the pattern of command we would to search.
As we push (Ctrl+R), the line would become (reverse-i-search) ”: and then we could write down the pattern. Figure 3 shows us how to recall the command with pattern (grou) and finally the complete command will appear on the right side of colon.
Welcome to My Blog. This is my first post. And I won’t delete this! 😀
“Hello, World!”, an introductory sentence when I was focused on my major (IT, Informatics). And until now, I think, it still available in many computer (programming) book. It was a first super sentence that make me and my friends’ life, maybe, colorized by many-many coding assignment, at college, at work, at daily living.
Do you think it was interesting? Just take a look here.. 😀
