Gedit 3.2 GDP Completions on Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot

Curiosity gets the best of me sometimes. Okay, most of the time. Did you know GNOME’s text editor, gedit, has a plethora of extensions which can basically transform it into an IDE? Something I’ve always wanted is intellisense-style autocompletion. The closest thing I’ve found for gedit is GDP Completions Plugin in the gedit-developer-plugins package in… Continue reading Gedit 3.2 GDP Completions on Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot

File List Applet – now with more autotools!

I decided that before I did any more work on the applet, I would improve its installation process to make it easier for people to try it out. So, the process to get and build the source now looks like this: Download Browse source here.

1024×768 Desktop

Lots of people customize their desktops. Many don’t, but I do.. a little. Here’s mine: I actually had to remove the Time Tracker (Hamster) applet to scale my 1280×1024 desktop down to 1024, but I think that was all. And I only just decided to try moving the Tomboy and Deskbar applets over to the… Continue reading 1024×768 Desktop

File List Applet – GNOME Panel Applet

This is kind of a proof of concept I’ve been playing with.

Jump-to-Playing Rhythmbox Plugin TODO

I haven’t looked at the plugin for a while, but I’ve been meaning to reproduce my “todo” list for it that I wrote on the rb-dev list a while back. the gconf keys in gconf-editor say they have no schema. The main plugins’ keys have a schema and don’t give a warning. Definitely not serious,… Continue reading Jump-to-Playing Rhythmbox Plugin TODO

Recent Geekiness

Hmmm… I’ve been pretty quiet on the blog front. Better write something. Show some sign of life. Well, officially 2 weeks of not being gainfully employed and I’ve been making pretty good use of the time, I think! (I know, you’d expect more blog posts from someone who has more time – I’m weird).
