Quickly archive multiple directories into separate archive files

Posted by in Ubuntu 23 comments

I recently needed to quickly archive several hundred directories, and their contents into separate, compressed files named after the directories. The horribly slow way to do this would be to either right-click each directory and select “create archive” via the File Manager, or, via the command line, to manually run tar several hundred times – […]

Changes are brewing…

Changes are brewing… Posted by in Life, Ubuntu 4 comments

Just a quick heads up about some changes I’m making to 64bitjungle.com – no, no, content will remain the same, and I’ll be writing as (in?)frequently as usual, but there will be a major design change possibly within the next couple of days. As much as I love the i3Theme, I’m getting fidgety, and feel […]

MySQL Workbench 5.1 Beta Released for Linux

MySQL Workbench 5.1 Beta Released for Linux Posted by in Databases, Linux, Ubuntu 2 comments

I’ve had a play with a few of the previous Alpha releases, and so far so good. Yesterday, MySQL Workbench 5.1 Beta was released, so I decided to download it and give it a go. There is currently no official 64 Bit binary installer available, so we still need to compile from the source. This […]

Batch Export Amarok Album Art to the Album’s Containing Directory Posted by in Linux, Ubuntu 8 comments

Despite being a Gnome user, I’ve been using Amarok – a KDE application – as my main music player for some time, and love it. I’ve also spent a lot of time within Amarok downloading and importing Album art for almost all of my music, with the exception of a few obscure albums for which […]

Install Adobe AIR 1.5 and the Google Analytics Reporting Application on Ubuntu

Install Adobe AIR 1.5 and the Google Analytics Reporting Application on Ubuntu Posted by in Featured, Linux, Ubuntu 8 comments

Sometimes, I’m just too lazy to browse to the Google Analytics site – all that bookmark clicking, logging in, choosing profiles etc. I just can’t be arsed. I could, of course, leave the page open, and click refresh every now and then, or even bookmark the profile/report and go back later. That’s too obvious, and […]

Finally, Sun release 64 Bit Browser Plugin Support for JRE (almost) Posted by in Linux, Ubuntu 6 comments

Update 05/02/09: Sun have actually released the update – no more beta –  so I’ve modified “Install Java JRE 1.6.0 (Update x) in Linux as the Default Java Runtime, including Firefox Browser Plugin” to reflect this (even the title has changed – although the URL remains the same!). The following tutorial remains for reference etc. […]

Full 64 Bit (or 32 Bit) Web Development and PHP/MySQL IDE with Eclipse 3.4 Ganymede and PDT 2 Posted by in Eclipse, Featured, Linux, Ubuntu, Web Development 59 comments

I’m probably a little late with this article, since PDT2 has been out for a few weeks now! PDT 2 is an improvement  on v1, and of course, Ganymede is also an improvement on Europa -thankfully, the installation process has also improved and is much easier than my previous post on the subject. There is […]
