I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my desktop. When I tried to play some mp3 files with Amarok 2.2.0, it didn’t make any sound though it played ogg without a problem.
Thanks to this post, mp3 play back can be enabled by installing libxine1-ffmpeg.
$ sudo apt-get install libxine1-ffmpeg

There are probably a gazillion ways to do this. I use FAAC, Freeware Advanced Audio Coder, to do this job.
It works very well:
faac originalfile.wav -o outputfile.m4a
So how do you transfer your photos from the iPhone 3G to your laptop running OS X if you don’t have iPhoto app? — Easy, just use the buit in app called Image Capture.
The app can be run from: Finder -> Applications -> Image Capture
Now, you can either download some or all photos by clicking on either one of the bottons as shown in the screenshot. Remember that you should have the iPhone connected to your copmuter, otherwise you would see the message saying the no device found or connected.

Recently, SVN has been installed on a local Debian box at work. This could have been done a bit earlier in my opinion, but well it’s better be a little late than never.
The SVN server is accessed via a LAN ip: 192.168.0.126. Because we didn’t setup static IP on the router, the IP of the server keeps changing from time to time. Here’s how one can change or relocate to the new URL.
With command line, just type:
svn switch --relocate OLD_URL NEW_URL
Using Tortoise SVN on Windows:

Eterm doesn’t display the fancy “ or ” on my Debian. It is not a big problem, but it’s very annoying when it doesn’t properly display these symbols used in some programs such as aptitude.
I wanted to fix it, but didn’t realize it there was a fix. After two years or using it, I tried to find the solution again, and I found it. Just add the this code to the
.profile in your home directory.
Restart eterm, and the special characters should be displayed correctly. Thanks to the folks at Ubuntu forum.
