Let's Do This Partner

Where are you?
Come out from your hiding,
There’s a job to do,
There’s a peace you need to bring.

Those candy are no good,
Didn’t do what they should,
Those drinks are just too weak,
Unable to bring ecstasy to this geek.

You as my final option,
Give me the joy I’ve been longing,
To present me with fabrication,
Is not something you would be doing.

Let’s do this partner,
I want you to take me far,
As I’m pulling your trigger,
You’ll become tonight’s superstar.

[Kubuntu]: Connect To Wireless Through Command Line

KDE 4.3 once again gave me a hard time. KNetworkManager crashed every time I tried to run it. It has something to do with segmentation fault.

Frustrated, I decided to find a way to connect to wireless using command line. After long hours of Googling, I found the solution.

First, you need to list available interfaces:

shidi@euphoria:~$ sudo iwlist scanning

and this will show something similar to the following:

lo        Interface doesn’t support scanning.

eth0      Interface doesn’t support scanning.

eth1      Scan completed :

[Kubuntu]: Digikam Failed To Work With KDE 4.2.9

I have recently upgraded my KDE version to 4.2.9. This however caused a problem with Digikam, it failed to load the thumbnails of selected albums.

I found a quick fix for this by adding new repository to your aptitude source list. Those repository are:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/digikam-experimental/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/digikam-experimental/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

The source file can be found at /etc/apt/sources.list. Once you have edited and saved the file, run the following command:

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 0xbf860d3661fbbba575be617f0bf0f083e353b3e9

The final thing to do is to run the following command:

sudo aptitude upadate and sudo aptitude safe-upgrade.
