XMind web browser does not show

Install Eclipse

That's all!

XMind scroll problem

View profile  
 More options Apr 7, 9:48 pm
XMind (and other Eclipse applications) do currently not show up in the
new global menu, which is used in Ubuntu Natty Narwhale (11.04).
See here:
Workarounds for this type problems can be found on the following site:

In essence: the command to run XMind from the command line is now:
"APPMENU_DISPLAY_BOTH=1 /usr/local/xmind/xmind"
(without quotes)

The site does not mention how to start applications affected by this
bug from the main menu, which requires a slightly different command.
This can be done by changing the command in the main menu to:
"/bin/sh -c  'APPMENU_DISPLAY_BOTH=1 /usr/local/xmind/xmind'"
(again without quotes).
The program 'alacarte' can be used for this, just as in previous gnome

This specific setting (APPMENU_DISPLAY_BOTH=1) causes the normal AND
the global menu to be shown. It will be therefore noticed when the bug
is fixed, so the main menu can be resetted.

Wireless setup when you install Ubuntu on HP mini

HP mini netbook no wireless

sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source

beamer->xouranl ->lecture

Recently I purchased Wacom Intuos4 small, which allows me to electronically write anything on digital note.  Windows has Windows Journal Note and Smartnotebook is an excellent software with 30 days of evaluation period.

On the other hand, Ubuntu provides the best solution since I am making my presentation slides using beamer.  Once you make a pdf file using beamer, open xournal on Ubuntu and just open the pdf file. The software xournal will smoothly convert the pdf to xoj format.  You can start lecturing!.

  1. generate pdf using beamer or use any pdf file
  2. start xournal and open the pdf file.
  3. enjoy electronic writing!
So, simple and easy!
