[HOW TO] Play games with multiple keyboard press exceeding limit

Well friends, my friend and me were playing Street Fighter Alpha 3 inside a PlayStation emulator on our PC. But the problem arose was if one pressed more than 3-4 keys at a single time, other could not hit any special powers. Then we just stopped playing that and start a search for it.

Date stuck on ubuntu though the next day already started

Wow, this day using ubuntu alpha state is really boring. I cannot get updated cause my date isn’t being updated. I mean the developer has developed the Time state, but the forgot to update the date. If you start your PC then their you see the change in date as it is loaded once, but in the panel you cannot see the update of the date. Yesterday, I forgot to close my PC and the same happened to me.

If you want to update the date without restart, you can goto Time & Date Settings. Then unlock the change settings. After that change the date and then close the window. You get the change.

I am using Ubutnu 11.04 Natty Narwhal on 64 bit Laptop.


[HOWTO] Get the old gnome look back from the unity | Ubuntu 11.04 Lucid lynx

Hi friends, you might be looking for the similar solution to get rid of the unity cause unity is not that good as the old beautiful gnome look. I too don’t like the current alpha look of Unity cause nothing is stable. This doesn’t mean that stop Unity. Unity is the major change that is happening in the upcoming Ubuntu 11.04 Lucid Lynx. They are changing the look but what happened to the old beautiful gnome? My friends, its still alive and along with you in your PC. Yes, you don’t need to install any third party system.

There is something you can do in order to see you system revert back to the old appearance. Here is how you get the old gnome look back. Basically there are two ways of getting it back. This way, whether you’re going online to access sites like www.pokerblog.com, or  Just kill the unity and the start “gnome-panel” and you get it with most of the function not working and this was the hardest way.

The easiest way to get it back is just “log off” and the click on your “username”. Then do not enter the password that quick. When you click your username, you see a small “panel” at the bottom of your screen. There you go and choose the “gnome compatibility”. And type your password. That’s the easiest way you get your beautiful gnome with everything working at its best.


[HOWTO] Enable Alt+F2 in ubuntu 11.04 alpha release

Hi friends, today I am here to write an article on how to return back the old and favorite “Alt+F2” gnome runner back. Basically, its not a problem cause currently Ubuntu 11.04 Lucid lynx is in alpha phase and they are making it better. We do have lots and lots of problem with the Unity but they are adding lots and lots of features right now and I am happy with it cause I am able to write some blog articles. And writing blog articles are fun for me.

Ok, now back to the topic. Open “ccsm”. If you haven’t installed it, install “compizconfig-setting-manager” and then run it. After that, check out the “Gnome Compatibility” option and you favorite runner appears after that. Similarly the menu “Alt+F1” also appears.

Have fun.
