Today, I was trying to print something at work and found out that our old Brother MFC 8840D printer was now replaced with a Fuji-Xerox DocuCentre-II C3300. The printer comes up in the network and is successfully identified (full printer name), but the driver is not listed anywhere. At least I didn’t find one that is close to it. There is a generic option but I did not bother to try that. Instead I opted for this solution:
When `ssh-add` does not work as expected because a ‘Could not open a connection to your authentication agent.’ error comes out, this might help:
There are environment variables that needs to be set and doing the command above will essentially do just that but with far lesser key strokes. It is also easier to remember since those archaic commands and environment variables that needs to be set always escape my mind.
6th Nov 2012 is a memorable day for Ubuntu/Linux users. It is the day that Valve has started the Steam For Linux closed beta testing. For many gamers out there, casual or hardcore, I’m sure they are familiar with Steam. Who wouldn’t be? And for Linux users, particularly those who use Ubuntu, many would be delighted that Valve has released their Steam client primarily with Ubuntu support.
If you are among the countless people using Eclipse IDE as your platform for software development on Ubuntu, then you may have noticed that it does not integrate at all into the global menu on Unity. Not a deal breaker actually, right. This does not even hamper you with your work at the least. I know it doesn’t for me.
However, if you are one of those who always strive for consistency on their Ubuntu desktop, then maybe this one bothers you a bit.
The 6th installment of the very successful Humble Indie Bundle (HIB) includes the acclaimed Adventure RPG (ARPG) Torchlight. Released back in 2009, this is the first part of the franchise from Runic Games. This particular game (well actually it was Torchlight 2, the sequel) has caught my eye, and interest, for the past month since it is being regularly mentioned in forums as one of the more anticipated ARPG games this year. Naturally when I saw it being offered on HIB I could not resist. I was curious what it had to offer, and to boot, it can run on Linux. If you run Ubuntu, all the more convenient because it can be installed directly from the Ubuntu Software Center (USC) after purchasing the bundle.
We’ve been had. I feel Blizzard has been “playing” its players with Diablo 3 all along. I’ve got over 250 hours logged on my Barbarian (I think it’s close to 300 or even more) and guess how many drops I’m actively using?
There’s like only 4!
This is not even BIS (best in slot) items, but they’re good enough for my DPS or tank set. More like forced, since I can’t get something similar that is affordable.
