大雪迎春

Feb 2, 2011   //   by Yue Yu   //   Blogs  //  1 Comment

瑞雪兆丰年啊,芝加哥两天前开始预报会有超大暴风雪,从休斯顿过来,直到波斯顿。

昨天学校也停课了,这是自1999年以来首次芝加哥的学校因为大雪而停课,机场取消了1300多次航班,降落了三个,其中包括一个AA从上海过来的,记者参访的时候一个老印说:感谢机长,我们完整地降下来了,不过还不如改道,我还要花200美元住宾馆,两天后再飞别的地方……

昨天下午5点左右开始起大风,100公里/小时,高速公路关闭(新闻说下午3点以后高速封闭,有大概一千辆车被关在高速上,到现在还没能回到家里),abc记者昨天中午11点出门,下午3点才出市区,5点到西北采访。

这是昨天晚上的样子,我家后门

早上起来后的情况,前门和后门

正好过年,上周末买了一冰箱的吃的,舒舒服服在家看春晚

国内零点时候的雪景,还是漫天的大雪

老婆做的八宝饭,本来是要请几个朋友一起来吃的,可惜因暴风雪取消了

年午饭,蛋饺是我自己做的

雪停了,后门的雪景,当中那个雪堆是我的本田雅阁

20英尺厚,芝加哥历史第三,开始扫雪

No video with Skype in Ubuntu

Jan 30, 2011   //   by Yue Yu   //   Blogs, Linux  //  No Comments

When I was trying to install skype in Ubuntu 10.10, I get no video picture. Although my camera works and the receiver can see my video, but I got a blank write screen on my laptop.

They all resolved with trying the followings:

Goto System>Preferences>Main Menu>Internet>Skype>Properties
change Command: from skype to

env XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 skype

But the video seems a little lag, not that smooth, you can improve that by this:

Create a bash file, I put it in my own “bin” folder, named “skype.sh”

Code:

————————————————————-

#!/bin/bash
export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype

————————————————————-

Then make it executable:

Code:

————————————————————-

sudo chmod 0755 skype.sh

————————————————————-

Then goto System>Preferences>Main Menu>Internet>Skype>Properties
change Command: from skype to the address of that bash file.

Ubuntu 实用技巧

Nov 12, 2010   //   by Yue Yu   //   Blogs, Linux  //  No Comments

上午终于有时间把Ubuntu升级到10.10,没发觉跟10.04有什么区别,又花了一下午把系统完善了一下,顺便在这里记录些体会

====================================================

xp下面的gmail notifier用了很顺手,ubuntu下也有,不是那个难看的checkgmail,这个跟任务栏结合了很好,
还支持密码环以及最新的notify-osd

具体安转见这里:

http://ahadiel.org/docs/gmail-notifier

要开机自动启动的话在系统=》首选项=》启动应用程序,添加一个新程序,名字随便起,命令为:python /usr/bin/gmail-notifier.py

====================================================

虽然昨天股票跌掉2W,但是股还是要抄的,今天研究了下怎么在Linux上炒股,我用的软件是通达信

首先,毫无悬念地apt-get wine,不用自己编译,装了就行

wine安装中文字体在网上能搜到很多教程,但Ubuntu 10.10+wine1.21的情况下不用折腾,wine可以直接调用Ubuntu的中文字体,不过文泉驿在wine里面不怎么好看,稍后再说

然后在wine里装上通达信,我用的是中信建投版的

用命令env LANG=zh_CN.UTF-8 wine /home/#username#/.wine/dosdevices/c:/#tdx_path#/TdxW.exe启动

有些乱码不要怕,在软件里面系统设置里改一下字体就可以了

要是提示缺少dll文件的话,用winetricks安装一下就可以了,具体步骤:

wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks

chmod +x winetricks

sh winetricks

图形界面中选择需要的(比如msxml3)函数库就可以了

====================================================

升级之后发觉firefox里按backspace不能后退了,于是google了一下,解决方案如下:

Type “about:config” in the address bar of Firefox and press Enter.
`Filter` for ‘browser.backspace_action’ and change its value to 0 (zero).

====================================================

最后送上一张桌面截图

How to Run Linux Background Jobs

Nov 3, 2010   //   by Yue Yu   //   Blogs, Linux  //  No Comments

A task can usually be started and run as a background task by putting a ‘&’ at the end of the command line.

If a task was started and is running in the foreground, it is still possible to move it to the background without cancelling it. To move a task from the foreground to the background perform the following steps:

1. CTRL-Z (That is, while holding the CTRL key down, tap the ‘z’ key) This will suspend the current foreground job (task).
2. Enter the job control command ‘bg’
3. Tap the ‘Enter’ key

The job is now running in the background.

Useful commands to see which jobs are still running is the ‘jobs’ or the ‘ps ua’ commands. If the ‘jobs’ command is used, a background jobs can be brought to the foreground with the command fg n where n is the job (not the PID) number.
