Hi all...

In this post I'm going to show you that how to enable multi language  support in ubuntu.

Canonical is working on translation of more that 200 languages. This is the list of the languages on which canonical limited  is working:
http://people.canonical.com/~dpm/stats/ubuntu-11.10-translation-stats.html

As you can see from that link, many languages are translated over 90%.

Now here are the steps to use multiple languages in ubuntu: (Screen-shots are of ubuntu 11.10)


1) Click Dashhome and search for term "language". You will find "keyboard layout" as second result. Open it.


2)Now in keyboard layout click on  "+" button. Which will open list of available languages.

3) Now from that list search for your language and click add button. And we are done.

4) Now on the upper right corner you may find list of enabled languages from which you can select your current language.

Started playing with ubuntu 11.10...........:)

So here i'm going to show you that how to change the background image of login screen (or greeter screen) in ubuntu 11.10.

In one of my previous post have shown that how to change login sceen background of older ubuntu versions. http://pcguide4you.blogspot.com/2011/03/changing-login-screen-background-in.html

But for ubuntu 11.10 the method is different and comparatively simple.

For that fire following command in ur terminal:

gksu gedit /etc/lightdm/unity-greeter.conf

Now this will open config file of unity-greeter in gedit.

Now in that file set the "background" property value equals to the path of the image which you want to set as your login screen background image.

You can also change the logo by changing the next property "logo" to an image having your name....



Hi everyone again......

Just before 1 hour I installed ubuntu 11.10 on my system. It's really cool ....same as every linux system...:)

There are many positives and few negatives also. One of these negative is that ubutnu 11.10 doesn't having GNOME.


Here I'm going to give you few commands using which you can install GNOME 3 on ubuntu 11.10.

I also tried to install GNOME 3 on ubuntu 11.04 but it didn't go well ans also corrupted my unity so I didn't posted about that.  But on ubuntu 11.10 GNOME 3 is working perfectly and it's really cool...

So here are the commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/gnome3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell gnome-session-fallback
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ricotz/testing
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool gnome-shell-extensions-user-theme
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell-extensions-alternate-tab gnome-shell-extensions-alternative-status-menu gnome-shell-extensions-user-theme gnome-tweak-tool gnome-shell-extensions-workspace-indicator gnome-shell-extensions-apps-menu gnome-shell-extensions-drive-menu gnome-shell-extensions-system-monitor gnome-shell-extensions-places-menu gnome-shell-extensions-dock gnome-shell-extensions-native-window-placement gnome-shell-extensions-gajim gnome-shell-extensions-xrandr-indicator gnome-shell-extensions-windows-navigator gnome-shell-extensions-auto-move-windows 


Now to use GNOME 3 environment you may logout from your current session and the  at the login splash screen choose gnome 3. You can also choose "gnome classic" environment from the same list...
 Feel free to comment in case of any doubts or troubles.....
I just come to know a cool package for Linux users using which you can feel real Matrix Digital Rain on your Linux terminal.  

It's cmatrix. Really very nicely done by the programmers of cmatrix. Again it's open source so if you are interested then you can play with it's source code also. :) 

Now coming to the point. You have to install cmatrix. 

For that fire following command:  
sudo apt-get install cmatrix  

Now just type "cmatrix" in terminal and you will find result similar to this screenshot. For more realistic effect keep your terminal window background color black.


You my refer man page of cmatrix to play with more options. 

Here is the official page of cmatrix.
