Install Flash on Ubuntu 12.04 – 64 Bits


Hello,

After install Ubuntu 12.04 - 64 bits to test it, I decided to try the Flash player. I decided to try the method created by Romeo-Adrian Cioba that I published Install Flash Player on Ubuntu 10.04 64 bits or Install Flash on Ubuntu 11.04 64 Bits.

native installer Flash Player 10.2 Preview 3
native installer Flash Player 10.0.45.2 (Seems more stable)

Give execution permission:

$ chmod +x native-64bit-flash-installer.sh

Execute it: (It will close your firefox!)

$ ./native-64bit-flash-installer.sh

Tested and working!

Sadly the repository version is not working for me, but this one keeps working.

Enjoy it,
Matheus

Remove or Disable Overlay Scrollbar – Ubuntu 12.04


Good Night,

Sadly (for me) the Scroll bar on Ubuntu 12.04 are still the same as Ubuntu 11.10. I particularly don't like it. So I tried the same method to disable the overlay scroll bar on Ubuntu 11.10 and Ubuntu 11.04, and it works! (I just tested the disable method.)

Use this:

# echo export LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0 > /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80overlayscrollbars

If you try the other methods, please let us know if it works!

Changing the menu buttons positions on Ubuntu 12.04


Hello

I'm still setting up my Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin). Let's change the menu buttons (minimize, maximize, close) position to the right (again).

Open your Terminal

$ sudo apt-get install gconf-editor

Run it

$ gconf-editor

Go to "apps/metacity/general/"
Find "button_layout" and update the value to:

menu:minimize,maximize,close

Save, logout, login. Done!

Best Regards,
Matheus

PS: If you have any problem try to install "dconf-tools", open dconf-editor, close and then try to use this method again.

Going back to Gnome Classic on Ubuntu 12.04


Good Night!

Everybody probably knows that today Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin was released. This version as some older one, doesn't have the Gnome installed by default so we need to install a package.

Use:

$ sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback

Logout. Press the gear and choose Gnome Classic.

That is it!

View photos of PGP/GPG certificates using GnuPG on Ubuntu


Hello,

To visualize the photos automatically using GnuPG on Ubuntu you need to edit your config file.

Edit:

gedit .gnupg/gpg.conf

If you want to enable the exhibition on key listing look for and uncomment

# Display photo user IDs in key listings
# list-options show-photos

If you want to enable the exhibition on verification look for and uncomment

#verify-options show-photos

Add this to the config file with the photo viewer that you want to use. In this case eog

photo-viewer "eog %i"

Save the file, and enjoy.

Ubuntu 12.04 Beta 2


Hello,

Following the tests releases of Ubuntu 12.04, today I decided to install the last version available, the Ubuntu 12.04 beta 2, the last release before the final version. Ubuntu 12.04 release date is scheduled to April, 26 (as always, the last Thursday of April.)

To download Ubuntu 12.04 go to:
Ubuntu 12.04 Beta 2 - Download

To verify Ubuntu 12.04 release dates go to:
Ubuntu 12.04 Release Schedule

I tried the methods from Ubuntu 11.10 to go back to Gnome Classic, remove overlay scrollbar, change the menu buttons position and install the gconf-editor. Remove overlay scrollbar worked a little bit bugged, the design seems strange, but it worked. The other stuffs seems to work as normal

You can find the methods on:

Remove or disable the overlay scrollbar on Ubuntu 12.04

Change the menu buttons positions on Ubuntu 12.04

Going back to Gnome classic on Ubuntu 12.04

Matheus
