Force New Windows To Start Centered

23:54 Рубрика: Linux

This quick tip is for Gnome users. I always wanted new windows to start centered on the desktop but never searched for something to modify this behavior. But yesterday I stumbled onto something which fixes this by changing 2 parameters in Gnome's almighty gconf editor:

Press Alt+F2 and enter gconf-editor, then set the following two values:

Key: /apps/metacity/general/focus_new_windows Value: smart
Key: /apps/compiz/plugins/place/screen0/options/mode Value: 1

Now your applications should start up nice and centered.


Free, Cross-Platform Password Manager: KeePassX

23:20 Рубрика: Linux
KeePassX Password Safe is a free, open-source, light-weight and easy-to-use password manager for Linux, Windows and Mac OSX. Originally KeePassX was called KeePass/L for Linux since it was a port of Windows password manager Keepass Password Safe. After KeePass/L became a cross platform application, it changed it's name to KeePassX

KeePassX offers a little utility for secure password generation. The password generator is very customizable, fast and easy to use. Especially someone who generates passwords frequently will appreciate this feature.

The complete database is always encrypted either with AES (alias Rijndael) or Twofish encryption algorithm using a 256 bit key. Therefore the saved information can be considered as quite safe. KeePassX uses a database format that is compatible with KeePass Password Safe. This makes the use of that application even more favourable.

Enable Menu And Buttons Icons In Gnome 2.28

20:57 Рубрика: Linux

The menu and button icons are disabled by default in Gnome 2.28, like I was telling you some time ago. Basically, this is how the menus and buttons look like in Gnome 2.28.

But this can be changed. For the menu part, it's very easy: just go to System > Preferences > Appearance and under the Interface tab, check the "Show icons in menus" box.

Now, for the buttons, run the following commands in a terminal:

gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/interface/buttons_have_icons --type bool true
gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons --type bool true

This is how the menus and buttons will now

Два монитора на одной видеокарточке

13:09 Рубрика: Linux

Несмотря на то, что у меня видеокарта NVidia Geforce 8500GT, я не стал пользоваться TwinView, поскольку она дает меньше рычагов для управления мониторами. Поэтому в статье рассматривается более традиционный метод.
Итак, пусть имеется одна видеокарта с DVI и D-SUB выходами. Пусть так же имеется два монитора.
Как эти мониторы присоединить к видеокарте и использовать одновременно?

Fundamentals of MySQL Query Validation

Web 2.0 is a fine thing. You can build whole websites, news systems, or picture galleries – just by using the power of content submitted by users.


But be careful! You can never trust every user when it comes to submitting data. There are always those who may try to compromise your website by submitting bad queries. Even if unintentional, it can be possible for users to destroy your database’s consistency just by entering incorrect data.
