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. […]

Adobe Flash Player 10 for 64 Bit Linux – Installation

Posted by in Linux, Ubuntu 6 comments

Adobe announced the alpha release of Flash Player 10 a few days ago, for 64 Bit Linux. I’ve tested if for a couple of days – looks good so far and aside from a nasty bug when visiting Gmail (see below for work around), and a few other sites, which causes Firefox to crash and […]

64 Bit Azureus BitTorrent Client with 64 Bit JRE

Posted by in Ubuntu, Web Development 2 comments

I love the fact that a huge amount of the applications I regularly use are available via the package manager, but sometimes, I like to install applications myself. Azureus is one such application – I wanted to install the latest x64 version, and utilise the x64 JRE I had installed for the x64 Eclipse IDE. […]

Conky: Dual Core Processors in .conkyrc

Conky: Dual Core Processors in .conkyrc Posted by in Conky, Programming, Technology, Ubuntu 11 comments

OK, this is a bit of a cheeky post, since I’m merely extending a previous post “Conky on Ubuntu 64 Bit – .conkyrc” – or elaborating on it – to clarify setting up .conkyrc for Dual Core Processors – specifically for my AMD Turion 64 X2. I’ve had a few requests specifically about this, so […]

Conky on Ubuntu 64 Bit – .conkyrc

Posted by in Conky, Programming, Technology, Ubuntu 27 comments

I recently installed Conky, which is a highly configurable and “light weight system monitor”. As with many packages, it’s available via the Ubuntu Repositories: sudo apt-get install conky The default installation outputs some pretty useful information about the system – CPU usage, RAM/Swap usage, HD IO, HDD space and so on, and there are also […]

Retro: Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48k on Ubuntu 64 Bit Posted by in Games, Ubuntu 3 comments

So, I have a state of the art Notebook (well, almost state of the art), with a Duel Core 64 Bit AMD Processor, 2Gb RAM, and a 64 Bit Operating System (Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon) – but, whatever… because I’ve found a Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48k Emulator! What better use for such a system than to […]

Broadcom 43xx (4318) Wireless on 64 Bit Ubuntu

Posted by in Technology, Ubuntu 5 comments

There are some great posts in forums and other blogs about getting the Broadcom 43xx Wireless card working in Ubuntu, which really helped me get on the right road to setting mine up (see the end of this post). However, I’m running 64 Bit Ubuntu on my Acer Aspire 5052, so I had a little […]

Repartitioning Ubuntu

Posted by in Technology, Ubuntu No comments

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to shrink my windozzze partition, and give the extra space to Ubuntu. I’ve been using Linux on and off for some years now, so I have a bunch of commands and methods stored away in my memory, and as such, I remembered that I probably wouldn’t be able […]

I’m currently using an AMD 64 Bit Acer Aspire 5052 Laptop to work, and play. I’ve been meaning to set up a blog for some time now, and the […]
