My GUI looks like this.

Pretty nice, isn't it?
How did I do that?
I got a good karuma. haha.

By the way, I was watering the rose and sakura seeds while wondering why the sakura seeds don't begin to sprout.
Guess what. I found the reason!
Sakura seeds sleep in the ground for a year before going to sprout, according to the guy who have successfully grown sakura trees from seeds...

GTK+: Possible code to enable geometric compositing (speculation)

Posted 07-19-2010 at 12:17 AM by Kenny_Strawn (Kenny the one-teen comittee to stamp out Proprietary $uckware)

Here's something for you guys:

#include <glib.h>
#include <glib/gtypes.h>
#include <gtk/gtk.h>

struct GtkPrism {
    guint32 Left;
    guint32 Top;
    guint32 Rear;

    guint32 Right;

Trouble shooting ALSA on Debian

Posted 07-17-2010 at 09:02 PM by craigevil (craigevil's random words of wisdom)

First go through the ALSA checklist:
1) add yourself to the 'audio' group (log out and log in again) , as root add username audio, where username is your user's name
2) use alsamixer and unmute channels and raise levels (also try muting some channels & toggle jack sense)

--$ alsamixer <Enter> {You will be able to control the volumes and balance through the keyboard.}

Press: Alt+F2
Then type: /usr/bin/kmix {Click 'Run'.}...
