Share anything. Anytime. Anywhere.

Have you ever wanted to share something that you were reading, but you didn't want to go through the hassle of subscribing to a whole feed for a single interesting article? And what about sharing content from sites with no feeds? There you are, reading along, and you think to yourself, "If only everything on the web had a 'Share' button like in Google Reader!"

As it turns out, there's all sorts of information "out there" just waiting to be streamed, shared and otherwise consumed by you and your friends. Now you can finally show all of your Reader friends that awesome talking cat video you found, your favorite grilled trout recipe, or reviews of the best brunch place in your neighborhood -- all without a subscription.

Here are a few new ways you can add and share interesting things in Reader:

Note in Reader
Share anything with a bookmarklet - Just drag this link from the Notes page up to your browser's bookmark bar and click, click, click your way to easy, no-subscription sharing in Reader. You can share any content from any web page, even if the site doesn't have a feed. For even more control over what gets shared, select some text from the page before clicking the "Note in Reader" bookmarklet and your selection will appear as the item's body. There's also a space for you to add an editorial note when you need to let your friends know why you are sharing something. You can always uncheck "Add to shared items" if you want to add something to Reader without also adding it to your shared items.

Share items with a note - If you are like me, you might want to share something in Reader, but think your friends might not "get" why you are sharing it. Use the "Share with note" button on the item toolbar to create a copy of that item with your own note attached to it. Now your friends won't have to wonder if the B-movie about an evil floor lamp you shared was intended to be funny, sarcastic, ironic or the real motivation behind your next movie night.

Share with note link
Note on item

Add a note - Do you ever get the urge to just share a thought with your friends without attaching it to any particular item? Now, you can let your friends know whatever pops into your head (for better or for worse) by typing anything into the text box at the top of the Notes page.

Notes box

We have also added a few other small features to make your sharing even more awesome! Add a little personality to your public shared items page by choosing from three new styles from your shared items page.

Shared items styles

Finally, we've changed the list view to highlight when an item is being shared by a friend, as opposed to through your normal subscriptions.

KDE: Get Hot New Stuff


Get Hot New Stuff (GHNS) sebagai fasilitas teknologi KDE ditawarkan untuk memberikan peluang kepada pengguna dan terutama pengembang desktop KDE yang ingin menyediakan atau berbagi hasil kreatifitasnya.

KDE.News memperkenalkan framwork baru berbarengan dengan dirilisnya KDE 3.4 dan menerbitkan wawancara dengan kreator GHNS: Josef Spillner asal Dresden, autor dari Perpustakaan KNewStuff.

KNewStuff adalah pustaka berisi implementasi KDE berdasarkan konsep tersebut, dimana kontributor dapat meng-upload karyanya dan pengguna dapat men-download dan menginstalasi menggunakan perkakas yang disediakan.


Josef Spillner sebagai implementator dari KNewStuff adalah mahasiswa yang sedang menekuni Informatika di Perguruan Tinggi Dresden. 'Hot New Stuff' sementara ini terdiri dari Stuff untuk KOrganizer dan sejumlah pustaka KDEShare di kdenonbeta.

Pustaka tersebut kini di integrasikan dengan kdelibs dan otomatis tersedia untuk KDE 3.4. Aplikasi diluar KDE, saat ini masih belum ada yang jadi di 'Get Hot New Stuff', kendati sejumlah koding sudah ditemukan.

Setiap aplikasi yang memanfaatkan KNewStuff, dapat menentukan tipe data yang diinginkan, bila perlu di-download dan/atau di-upload, digitally signed, uncompressed on the fly. Data yang di-upload kemudian disebar ke sejumlah server untuk pengguna lainnya.

Saat download sebuah proses berlangsung yang melakukan verifikasi file yang tersedia dan membandingkan dengan versi yang terpasang di komputer lokal. Perbedaan yang ditemukan di indikasikan kepada user dengan warna misalnya hijau untuk file yang sama dan telah terinstalsi sedangkan warna kuning telah terinstalsi tapi bila ingin bisa di-update.

GHNS untuk dipakai dimana?
Spillner memberi contoh misalnya didalam KDE CVS, termasuk Quanta+, KOrganizer, sejumlah aplikasi Edutainment dan konfigurasi desktop untuk user. Untuk siluar KDE CVS, segudang proyek games dari GGZ Gaming Zone memanfaatkan KNewStuff untuk memlihara agar levels dan themes senantiasa up-to-date. Sementara dengan pemindahan library ke kdelibs diharapkan lebih banyak proyek-proyenk yang mencontoh jejak ini.

Slackware 12 - page11 - END

//Ini Page terakhir dari Tutorial Slackware 12 source http://www.howtoforge.com/ Terima kasih



22 Extra Information:

Learning about man

If you would like to learn more about any commands you can use the man program.

To learn about the command man simply type,

man man

and press enter:

The manual page for man opens. Press q to quit:

To learn about the command su type,

man su

The manual page for su opens. Press q to quit:


Clicks and KDE

If you're coming from a double-click Windows type environment you may be wondering why everything is opening when you single click a file or folder. The default for KDE is a single mouse click. To change this setting click, K-Menu->Settings->Peripherals->Mouse

Select Double-click to open files and folders:

Firefox warnings

This is how I deal with a minor Firefox annoyance. Firefox's default settings mean getting warned about almost every website you open or close. To stop these warnings you can do the following. In Firefox click Edit->Preferences. Then click the tab named Security. In the section named Warning Messages click Settings. Uncheck the warnings you don't want to be notified about.

NTFS-3G

You can mount NTFS partitions by adding them to your fstab file or manually from the command line. I manually edited my fstab file to mount my NTFS partitions at every boot. I'd like to show you how I modified my fstab file to allow me to read and write to my NTFS partitions.

The file named fstab is the configuration file containing information about your partitions. fstab is located in /etc.

Change your directory to /etc:

cd /etc

In the terminal type,

su

to become root.

Backup of your fstab file before editing it,

cp fstab fstab.BAK

Below is my fstab file before modifications (click here to learn why the line for the /dev/cdrom is commented out). From the fstab file you can see I have one SATA drive with three partitions; swap, / and /home.

Below is the screenshot after I modified it to mount my NTFS partitions.

Let's take a closer look at the line for the NTFS partition with the mount point /mydocs:

The first field is the device. Most devices are indicated by a file name (of a block special device), like /dev/sda1. In this example, /dev/sdb1 is the second hard drive on my PC.

The second field indicates the mount point for the filesystem. The mount point is an existing directory on your disk. In this example it's the /mydocs directory.

The third field lists the filesystem type. In this case the NTFS partition is indicated by the ntfs-3g driver.

The fourth field are the mount options. To mount the file system read-write we use rw. To allow every user to mount and unmount the file system we use users. To let my user account access my NTFS partitions I use umask=1000. This makes the user with uid 1000 to be the owner of all files. And my account uid is 1000. To find your uid run the program id,

id brian

The fifth field is used for these filesystems by the dump command to determine which filesystems need to be dumped. If the fifth field is not present, a value of zero is returned and dump will assume that the filesystem does not need to be dumped.

The sixth field is used by the fsck program to determine the order in which filesystem checks are done at reboot time.

The other option is to manually mount your NTFS partitions. You can mount any NTFS volume in read-write mode with the command,

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /media/windows

Of course, your device name and mount point may be different.

How do I use the command line version of BitTorrent that I installed in Section 9?

We'll need to download a torrent to test the program. Once we confirm it works we'll quit BitTorrent right away. Using Firefox open your browser window to http://www.slackware.com/getslack/torrents.php.

Select one of the Torrents for 12 to download:

Select Open with /usr/bin/bittorrent-xter (default) and click OK:

Because BitTorrent integrates with Firefox the download begins immediately. Press q to quit and close the BitTorrent window.

Now lets test from the command line. Download the torrent again but this time click Save to Disk:

Open a terminal where you saved the torrent and type,

bittorrent-curses slackware-12.0-install-dvd.torrent

BitTorrent starts downloading the file. When starting from the command line BitTorrent looks like:

Again, press q to stop the download.

Have fun with BitTorrent!

Using the any-any-update to install VMware Server

Before applying the patch follow the instructions from Section 18 of this tutorial to install VMware Server. The VMware Server installer needs to run and then fail prior to using the patch. At some point the installation will return an error that may look like:

After VMware Server returns the error you're ready to install the patch. First, read about the patch here.

You can get the patch here

Download, vmware-any-any-update113.tar.gz

In the terminal type in,

su

to become root.

Extract the file by typing,

tar xzvf vmware-any-any-update113.tar.gz

A new directory is created. Change you directory to the new directory by typing,

cd vmware-any-any-update113

Run the patch by typing,

./runme.pl

The installer will ask you a lot of questions. You can always accept the default values simply by hitting Enter.

After the patch runs the module should load in the kernel:

And the installation should complete:

To start VMware click K Menu->System->VMware Server Console

20 Installing From Source:

Installing from source code is easy. Usually the following steps are all you need to do:

./configure

make

su -c "make install"

Download Filelight from http://www.methylblue.com/filelight/.

Notice that this is a Bzipped file unlike all the other downloads in this tutorial that are Gzipped. This means that we'll be extracting the file using tar xjvf instead of tar xzvf.

Click the Source tarball to download:


Save the file:

I made a directory named filelight and saved it there:

In the terminal window type,

cd /home/brian/Desktop/downloads/filelight

Then extract the contents by typing,

tar xjvf filelight-1.0.tar.bz2

After you unpack the file a directory is created named filelight-1.0.

Change your directory to filelight-1.0 by typing,

cd filelight-1.0

Type,

./configure

Then run make,

make

Finally run,

su -c "make install"

Or, if you are already logged in as root just type,

make install

Once installation is finished run the program by clicking, K Menu->Utilities->Filelight:

18. Install VMware Server From a Perl script:

With VMware Server you can run other Operating Systems on your desktop. This can be useful if you depend on some applications that exist for Windows only, or if you want to switch to Linux slowly.

To download VMware Server, go to http://www.vmware.com/download/server/ and click on Download Now:

Accept the license agreement by clicking Yes:

Then download the VMware Server for Linux .tar.gz file (not the rpm file!) to your desktop (e.g. to /home/brian/Desktop/downloads/vmware/):


To run VMware Server you need to get the serial number. Go to http://register.vmware.com/content/registration.html. Fill in your personal details. Afterwards you will get a page with a serial number for VMware Server. Write it down or print it out:

Just for your information older versions of VMware Server required the vmware-any-any-update patch. When I installed VMware Server's latest version (1.0.4 | 9/18/07 | Build 56528) for this tutorial, I did not need the patch. Just in case you need the patch I wrote a brief HOWTO to install VMware using the any-any patch in Section 22.

To install VMware Server, open a terminal and type,

su

to become root.

Change your directory to the one containing VMware-server-1.0.4-56528.tar.gz, e.g. /home/brian/Desktop/downloads/vmware (replace brian with your own username!):

cd /home/brian/Desktop/downloads/vmware/

VMware will NOT install unless we first create a directory in /etc.

In the command line window type,

mkdir /etc/pam.d

Unpack the VMware-server-1.0.4-56528.tar.gz file and run the installer:

tar xzvf VMware-server-1.0.4-56528.tar.gz

Then,

cd vmware-server-distrib/

To install type,

./vmware-install.pl

The installer will ask you a lot of questions. You can always accept the default values simply by hitting Enter. When you see this question:

In which directory do you want to keep your virtual machine files?

[/var/lib/vmware/Virtual Machines]

you can either accept the default value or specify a location that has enough free space to store your virtual machines.

Press Enter:

Press Enter:

Press Enter:

At the end of the installation, you will be asked to enter a serial number:

Please enter your 20-character serial number.

Type XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX or 'Enter' to cancel:

Fill in your serial number for VMware Server.

To start VMware click K Menu->System->VMware Server Console:

Select Local host and click Connect:

I'm lucky enough to still have my copy of MS-DOS 6.22 on four floppy disks and my copy of One Must Fall: 2097

Enjoy VMware!
