display chinese properly

Posted 08-17-2012 at 05:01 AM by ted_chou12

Hi, I just made the machine be able to display chinese properly. First, choose a font from your windows directory, usually mingliu.ttc or kaiu.ttf. Since the chinese character db is huge, these files are usually a few mb in size. Copy a desired copy to /usr/share/fonts/ttf and run fc-cache -f -v thru terminal should be able to do it. Ofcourse a reboot is always a recommended option. In addition, since chinese db is the largest, if you chose a ttf/ttc file over ~20mb, jap and kor can usually display...

automount and umount script

Posted 08-16-2012 at 01:30 PM by ted_chou12

This is a sciprt that automounts and unmounts usb devices, because I realized my system does not consistently automount drives, and sometimes gets mounted incorreclty:
#mounts start with f
tbmounted=(f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z)

for each in "/dev/sd"* ; do
	for alphabet in ${tbmounted[@]} ; do
		if [ "$mname" == "sd$alphabet" ] ; then
				mounts=$(mount | grep

root:# mount -t cifs "//" "/mnt/share/NAS"
Password for vl70@//

Let me post something unrelated...Cause Im MAD

Fuck Ebay!

I sold an item on Ebay two months ago, the buyer didn't liked it, and ebay authorized a refund without my permission. But there is a $7.20 charge on my credit card for the item sold fee. Now ebay ask money from me.

Two weeks ago, I decided to trust Ebay and decided to issue a reimbursement of $100 dollars in TOTAL. The ebay agent told me I could get my $7.20 back thru some kind of transaction procedure but NOT directly. I trusted him cause he promised me....
