sudo apt-get install alien

Grab yourself the Odf converter from http://download.go-oo.org/red-carpet/ooo-680/sled-10-sp-i586/

Now lets convert it like this:

alien -ct odf-converter-1.0.0-5.i586.rpm

You will end up with a .tgz version

Extract it to a directory, then go into it.

Now its time to copy a few files to allow us to open up our .docx file./

sudo cp usr/lib/ooo-2.0/program/OdfConverter /usr/lib/openoffice/program/

sudo cp usr/lib/ooo-2.0/share/registry/modules/org/openoffice/TypeDetection/Filter/MOOXFilter_cpp.xcu /usr/lib/openoffice/share/registry/modules/org/openoffice/TypeDetection/Filter/

static ip and dhcp ip

Published by:

here’s what to do when setting up the network in ubuntu. u know when everything dont set up automaticly like ‘jendela’.
i m using the attansic lan card, onboard, i have read it that the lan have the atheros chipset. slackware cant read it. u should find the driver (that i lost it) and install it to your module.
but this is in ubuntu. the lan read as attansic. but no connection yet.

#sudo su (always log in as root)
#nano /etc/network/interfaces
write these down :

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

the ip address above is for example. see my post about broadcast and netmask if you dont know what are they.

#nano /etc/network/option

write these down


save them.
then restart the network

#/etc/init.d/networking restart

wait for a moment then connected.

this is what u should do if you are using dhcp. write these down inside the interfaces file

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

that’s it try it.

we use broadcast to determine in which ip the packet will send to another computer in a network
here is what to do when determining the broadcast ip.
if u use as your ip
and your as your mask then your broadcast is
that’s what i read in en.wikipedia.org.

ubuntu kernel compilation

Published by:

i got the info from http://howtoforge.com about ubuntu compilation kernel
here are the step : (log in as root by sudo su first)

#rm -f /bin/sh
#ln -s /bin/bash /bin/sh
#apt-get update
#apt-get install kernel-package libncurses5-dev fakeroot wget bzip2
then download the kernel source from www.kernel.org
if you already defined it then type this
#cd /usr/src
#wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/linux-
#tar xjf linux-
#ln -s linux- linux
#cd /usr/src/linux
if you have to compile a patch here’re what to do
#cd /usr/src
#wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/testing/patch-2.6.19-rc4.bz2
#cd /usr/src/linux
#bzip2 -dc /usr/src/patch-2.6.19-rc4.bz2 | patch -p1 –dry-run
#bzip2 -dc /usr/src/patch-2.6.19-rc4.bz2 | patch -p1

#cp /boot/config-`uname -r` ./.config
#make menuconfig

after finished setting the way you want do these
#make-kpkg clean
#fakeroot make-kpkg –initrd –append-to-version=-custom kernel_image kernel_headers

then you will find two deb packages
for example
#dpkg -i linux-image-
#dpkg -i linux-headers-

then restart you comp and find out your new kernel by
#uname -a

i did this for fixing my vga actually.

remote desktop ubuntu and windows

Published by:

wow i think i m making good improvement now. i dont have to switch my monitor again into the 2nd cpu you know. after successing with the remote desktop between windows that i found out quite easy.. now i tried to do it with ubuntu and windows.
or ubuntu to ubuntu.

the easiest one is between ubuntu to ubuntu.
first you have to set the remote desktop menu in System > Preference menu in your ubuntu into accessible. put the password if necessary.

and in the host cpu type this
#vncviewer 192.168.0.XXX:0

well i have not try it yet cos i dont have other ubuntu machine running at this moment.

now from windows to ubuntu
first download the free realvnc program version 4.1.1, install it.
run the vnc viewer program
type the ip address of your remote ubuntu then fill the password if any
then you will have your ubuntu inside your windows.
you will get full control if you defined it under ubuntu in the remote desktop menu.

well i would like to try ubuntu to windows with the vnc server running on windows but i will try it tomorrow.

connect from windows to ubuntu share

Published by:

after weeks of confusions.. finally i understand how to setup the network access from windows to ubuntu.
first u have to understand that the ubuntu define with the uniqe username.
after you have the username, one or two it doesnt matter, u have to create a samba password.
ah yeah, this command would only work if you install the samba first. and also the smbfs to change the cifs if necessary.

#useradd budi
then fill in the unix password to access it later and also other information stuff

#smbpasswd -a budi
enter the password

this samba password will be use by other system to log in to. well i have tried it with my vista and its working.
that’s all what all the things do.

smbfs mount network drive

Published by:

hmh finnally i can browse vista direktori with my ubuntu.
i failed on my first attempt. i thought i would give up on that and said that i will use my flash instead to move files.
but after installing smbfs from the repo… i did it weeks ago thoug..
i wrote the command in fstab with lack of written command.

here is what i wrote before manually
mount -t cifs -o username=nama,password=pass //192.168.xxx.xxx/dir /mnt/dir

but that was wrong, here what i should write
mount -t smbfs -o username=nama,password=pass,UID=ubuntuusername //xxx-pc/dir /mnt/dir

and finally it’s work.
pay attention to the line UID that what i missed before
after i use smbfs i dont have to use 192.xxx.xxx.xxx address on identifyng the net drive. enough with the pc name.
but remember the drive that the vista will easily accessed is the one that already shared.

finally if i want to mount them automatically during start up.. this what i wrote in the fstab
//xxxx-pc/dir /mnt/dir smbfs credentials=/home/userdir/.passfile,UID=ubuntuuser,g 0 0

look to .passfile … that is mean i created .passfile file contain the following

i put the dot in front of the file means the file is hidden
then dont forget to change the mod of the file to root executable only with
#chmod 600 .passfile

you can create a static link so it will be easy to access it in another dir
for example you already inside the home dir
home@pc/home/pc#ln -s /mnt/dir name

there you go will have a name link. if you do cd or ls it will work.

thanks to zdnet.blogs.com that i got this info
