Focus problems on 64-bit version of aMSN

Posted 08-01-2008 at 01:06 PM by Vermind

aMSN, the most full-featured msn clone for Linux, runs well on my 32-bit Ubuntu. But on the 64-bit one, every log message, such as "contact has joined conversation", and a new message by a contact causes aMSN to lose focus. I need then to go out of the conversation window, and come back in order to be able to type. This occurs regardless of my window manager; occurs on both metacity and compiz. Also, if I enable SCIM on my work Ubuntu, 32-bit, the same focus loss happens. When I disable...

UFO: Alien Invasion

Posted 08-01-2008 at 01:03 PM by Vermind

I played the good old UFO: Enemy Unknown (XCOM: UFO Defense in the US) in the days of 486 DOS computers, and later on on DosBOX on my Linux box. I then played UFO2000, the battle only - multiplayer remake of the game. UFO: Alien Invasion brings the world map back to the game: it is an open-source remake of the original UFO, in Quake 2 - engine powered 3D, with a new alien agenda and lots of more realism. The game seems to have an impressive amount of depth...

--New Computer : Upgrade to Lenny--

So I had the wifi working with bcm43xx, and I had two systems, one amd64 and one i386. I went over to a friends house and updated to lenny on both systems. At the time the i386 system was still almost unusable because of the time it took to boot up, nearly 10 minutes. I changed the 'sources.list' file on both partitions. After a long time running 'aptitude update' and 'aptitude full-upgrade' I got both installations up to a current version of lenny....

Skype Pidgin Plugin

Posted 08-01-2008 at 12:57 PM by Vermind

As some might know,
there is a plugin to use a running Skype instance through Pidgin. Unfortunately using Skype through Pidgin on my Ubuntu 8.04 causes Pidgin to crash sometimes, with a
pidgin: ../../src/xcb_lock.c:77: _XGetXCBBuffer: Assertion `((int) ((xcb_req) - (dpy->request)) >= 0)' failed.
Bug entry here.
I read that this could be worked around with the
environment variable, but the same issue still occurred even with it.
