Ubuntu 12.04 missing system hibernate?

I upgraded my Lenovo 3000 V200 Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04 just recently. And I noticed that my favorite “hibernate” is missing.  So… I read and modified the kernel sources.. recompiled…… JUST KIDDING!!!   I actually googled and found this thread (http://askubuntu.com/questions/94754/how-to-modify-policykit-to-allow-hibernation-in-upower) and it works!!

Just create or modify this file using your favorite file editor (vim works for me!)


And put…

[Re-enable hibernate by default]

A restart (power cycle) to apply the changes and then wooolaaa!!! “hibernate” is back!!

Finally! Upgrading to 11.10! #ubuntu

I’m so puzzled why I’m not getting any upgrade notification for 11.10 … thanks to LiberianGeek.net I found out that I need to edit some file and change to “Prompt=normal” then bang! now I’m upgrading! Let’s see if its going to be a success.

GNU/Linux IDE : From Kate to Geany

I was using KATE ever since… but now I’m using Geany instead. Try nyo nalang kung bakit…

This is not a blog saying who’s the best editor in town… It might be EMACS… it might be VI… ok?

Geany is a small and lightweight Integrated Development Environment. It was developed to provide a small and fast IDE, which has only a few dependencies from other packages. Another goal was to be as independent as possible from a special Desktop Environment like KDE or GNOME – Geany only requires the GTK2 runtime libraries.
Some basic features of Geany:

  • Syntax highlighting
  • Code folding
  • Symbol name auto-completion
  • Construct completion/snippets
  • Auto-closing of XML and HTML tags
  • Call tips
  • Many supported filetypes including C, Java, PHP, HTML, Python, Perl, Pascal (full list)
  • Symbol lists
  • Code navigation
  • Build system to compile and execute your code
  • Simple project management
  • Plugin interface (see Plugins)

Geany is known to run under Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, MacOS X, AIX v5.3, Solaris Express and Windows. More generally, it should run on every platform, which is supported by the GTK libraries. Only the Windows port of Geany is missing some features.
