Installing Flash 11.2 on Ubuntu 64 Bits.


Hello,

This update of Flash Player installer uses the new version 11.2. It downloads it and install.

To install it you must give execution permission:

chmod +x native-64bit-flash-installer-11.2.sh

And then, just execute it:

./native-64bit-flash-installer-11.2.sh

The installation should be complete without problems.

Flash Player 11.2 Installer - Ubuntu 64 Bits

If you want to install older version take a look at: Install Flash 10 on Ubuntu 64 Bits

Remembering that this is the last Flash version for Linux. Sadly. Security problems will have updates.

EDIT: Update to last Flash 11.2.202.243 (19/10/2012)

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!

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

Installing Ubuntu 12.04 Beta 1 on VirtualBox


Good Night,

Today I decided to try Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) Beta 1 on VirtualBox. This version will be a LTS version (Long term support) so the community are anxious to see it. The final version of Ubuntu 12.04 is scheduled to be released on April 26.

As I expected the installation on VirtualBox went smoothly, sadly the installation took longer then usual.

For now there aren't a lot of visual changes, I didn't noticed any change at all, the default graphic system still is Unity and on the VirtualBox it is heavy.

I tried the methods from Ubuntu 11.10 to go back to Gnome Classic, remove overlay scrolbar, change the menu buttons position and install the gconf-editor and all methods worked as a charm.

You can find the methods on:

Remove or disable the overlay scrollbar on Ubuntu 11.10

Change the menu buttons positions on Ubuntu 11.10

Going back to Gnome classic on Ubuntu 11.10

Matheus
