The Best Audacious Skin that I know ! ~

Kinda frustated while looking for a good skin for your lightweight audio player, Audacious?

eh eh , btw, do you know Audacious??
Audacious is a simple, lightweight audio player for Linux . It looks like Winamp. For now, Audacious is my favorite audio player. Hehehe..

Audacious supports Winamp skins , but only Winamp 2.x skins . Skins that look cornered , and also flat (read: old).. Even it only supports Winamp 2.x skins , I still love it .. :3 Continue reading

No more Nautilus Elementary!

I just checked one of the unread messages in my inbox, and really surprised by its content. The message comes from OMG Ubuntu. It said, there’s no more Nautilus Elementary (NE)! WTH this means?? Now, Nautilus Elementary no longer being actively developed or I said, it has been discontinued…..

But why? One of the reason, maybe, because the NE’s patches are considered as hacks in the Ubuntu Developer Summit a while ago.. Hoo my.. I think NE is the best visually appealing file browser I’ve used.. And as far as I use, there’s no problem with it!

Nah, the elementary Team (developer of NE), currently developing the new file manager, named Marlin. It uses GTK3 and some Gnome3’s technologies. It’s available in launchpad, already. But don’t expect too much from Marlin, right now. It still needs a lot of things to do (and time) before we see the stable release. Just wait and see what’s new in Marlin!

Keep spirit, the elementary Team !!! (rock)

[Tips] How to Make Table in Inkscape

Please ignore tips bellow!
Right now there is an extension for creating tables in Inkscape. Check the project here and give it a try! 🙂

Have you ever wondered, how to make a table in Inkscape?
Inkscape is a POWERFULL free (cross-platform) vector image editor. Unfortunately, it doesn’t has a tool/ menu for creating table. Okay, that’s not problem anymore! You could add tables in Inkscape easily, just in three simple steps !

Let’s have a try !

First step, make your own table in Open Office or other Word Processing, such as (legal copy of) Microsoft Word. Note, the word processing program should has a convert-to-pdf feature. Alternatively, you can use third-party software, for converting it into pdf format.

Second, as I said above. Convert the document that you just created into pdf format. In Open Office, it so simple. Just click on the pdf icon and it will ask you where to save the document.

Third, open Inkscape. Import the document that you just created. Simply from menu File > Import …. Choose “import text as text” option in the Import dialog. Now, your table added !!

That’s how you add tables into Inkscape. Simple, right ?! 😀

Do you know GIMP ?

If you are a Digital Graphic Designer, maybe you know it. Yeah, GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. I can say, it’s similiar to Adobe Photoshop, with the ability to produce great digital graphic and photos (photo retouching)
