Upgrade Ubuntu Breezy to Dapper

rmccann rmccann writes  |  more than 8 years ago

This took me a few minutes of googling to sort out.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-update


Obtain the icon from a Mac OSX file as a PNG file.

rmccann rmccann writes  |  more than 8 years ago As a fan of the new Battlestar Galactica TV show and user of Mac OSX, I was delighted to find this BSG dock icon set for Adium . However I wanted to create my own version of the icon set. The icons themselves were taken from this set of BSG icons. All the icons in that set are stored in the icons for the file, inside the resource fork. If you "ls -l" on the files, they look empty. In order to get the icon from the resource fork you can use OSXUtils a set of command line programmes to work with osx meta data. 'geticon' does what it says on the tin. "/usr/local/bin/geticon -t png -o Laura\'s\ Note.png Laura\'s\ Note" extracted the icon from the file.


New plans for this Slashjournal

rmccann rmccann writes  |  more than 8 years ago In my first and only slashjournal entry I said I wouldn't be using this, and directed people to my LiveJournal. I'm going to use my LiveJournal as a way to keep my friends up to date on random stuff, and use this SlashJournal for my technical stuff. Anything I figure out with technology will be recorded here.
