0 Slackel - Slackel live 6.0 openbox has been released

Slackel is a Linux distribution and live CD based on Slackware Linux and Salix OS. It is fully compatible with both. It uses the current version of Slackware and the latest version of the KDE desktop. The Slackel disc images are offered in two different forms - installation and live.

It is fully compatible with Slackware and Salix but the difference is that it includes the current version of Slackware.  So Slackware users can benefit from Slackel repositories. It is available in two editions, KDE and Openbox. Slackel disc images are offered in two different forms, Installation disc image and Live disc image. Slackel is developed in Greece by Dimitris Tzemos. 

Slackel live 6.0 openbox has been released

Slackel live 6.0 openbox includes the latest 3.10.30 kernel and latest updates from Slackware's 'Current' tree. Slackel is based on  Slackware and Salix.

The project is distributed as two Live CD ISO-hybrid images, one for each of the supported hardware platforms (64-bit and 32-bit). They can be easily burned onto blank or RW CD discs, as well as written on USB sticks of 1GB of larger.

These are called bootable mediums and can be used to boot the operating system in live mode, without installing anything on your computer, or install it on a local disk drive.

There are several live modes to choose from, such as graphical mode, persistent mode, without ACPI, without SWAP, or text mode. Supported languages include English (default), Spanish, French, Italian, Greek, Czech, Dansk, German, Japanese, Hungarian, Polish, Dutch, and Portuguese.

As mentioned, the graphical session is powered by the lightweight and minimal Openbox window manager, which is comprised of a single, transparent panel located on the bottom edge of the screen.

From this bottom taskbar, users can easily and quickly access the main menu, launch applications, interact with running programs and the system tray area, as well as to switch between virtual workspaces.

Default applications include the Exaile audio player, ISO Master CD/DVD image creator and editor, Whaaw! media player, Asunder Audio-CD ripper, Geany IDE, Viewnior image viewer, Claws Mail email client,
Gparted, gFTP file transfer utility, and Midori web browser.

In addition, it comes with Pidgin multi-protocol instant messenger, Remmina remote desktop client, Transmission torrent downloader, Wicd network manager, AbiWord word processor, Gnumeric spreadsheet editor, SpaceFM file manager, and many other small, yet useful utilities.

All in all, if you want to use the Openbox edition of Slackel Linux download and use this flavor. It can run in persistent mode, allowing users to save configuration files and reuse it whenever you want.

(The root password for the live CD is “live”. Standard user login is “one” with password: "one")

Slackel live has been created using Slackware Live tool for Slackware/Slackware64/Slackware-ARM Linux.
This tool has been further developed to support keyboard and locale setup on the fly, to add boot menus and splash image, to support booting on 13 locales and timezones, to set root's password, create a new user with password and remove the liveuser, to set the keyboard and locale, set the hostname etc when installing on hard disk.
Modules has been created using funionfs.
Supports GPT and legacy MBR partitioned disks, UEFI and CSM (legacy / BIOS) booting.
Also supports installation on USB as frugal install so user can boot the system with persistence changes. There is no need to create a persistence file.
(e)lilo is the installed boot loader if user want it. There is no need to set keyboard, locale, timezone since system boots in the locale at boot time

SLI is a minimalistic and optional GUI to install or copy the live system. This gui pass the installation procedure to slackware live tool which does the real installation.
I used c (GTK+2) and glade to further developed the sli gui and build-slackware bash script so both can be used on slackel:
- added support for setting root password on installation system
- added support for creating a user name and user password on installation system and remove liveuser.
- added partition manager connectivity in Gui (gslapt)
- added support for core, basic and full installation mode.
- locale, keyboard, timezone automatically set in installed system since user already has been chosen them on boot time from menus.
- Help appears while user move the mouse on the Gui.
- Boot on 13 locales and timezones.

0 Cara Untuk MeResize Ukuran File Pdf

Print to file
Ssst.. ada lagi tugas hari ini. Jika kemarin baru saja menggabungkan banyak file .pdf menjadi satu, sekarang giliran extra order, yaitu meresize file pdf yang kemarin baru saja digabungkan karena dimensinya yang memang terlalu besar untuk dicetak di printer.

Terus gimana caranya meresize file .pdf itu? Hmm.. gimana ya? Apa harus dibuka per halaman terus diresize secara manual? Ah, rasanya tidak bijak itu.

Tuing.. tuing.. akhirnya inget juga dengan yang namanya print to file yang dulu digunakan untuk menyimpan halaman web ke format .pdf.  Bisa gak ya? Nah itu yang barusan sempet dicoba. Ternyata bisa :)

Lakukan setup printing sesuai kebutuhan

  1. Buka file .pdf yang akan di resize, saya menggunakan evince dan okuler. Bisa salah satu. Kemudian..
  2. Pilih print, print to file dan pilih pdf
  3. Lakukan setting kertas, ke A4 atau sesuaikan dengan kebutuhan pencetakan kita.
  4. Tentukan nama file .pdf baru dan lokasi penyimpanannya
  5. Print, dan tunggu sampai selesai
  6. Tra la la, selesailah tugas meresize file .pdf ke ukuran A4

Seperti biasa, saya tetap setia menggunakan mesin Ubuntu untuk bekerja, jadi disini juga menggunakan aplikasi yang berjalan di linux/ubuntu. Kalau menggunakan windows, bisa menginstall adobe distiller untuk bisa print to file.

Oh ya kalau mau melakukan convert file .pdf ke mode grafik jangan lupa baca ini.
Alhamdulillah :)

0 Tips Menggabungkan Beberapa File PDF Menjadi Satu

Ssst.. tadi ada sedikit duty untuk menggabungkan banyak file-file .pdf dari tahun 2005 sampai 2014 menjadi 1 file .pdf
Itulah yang jadi ide utama nulis tips berikut ini :) Silahkan baca selengkapnya..

Ada banyak alasan kenapa saya kepikiran untuk bisa menyatukan file-file .pdf berdasarkan kelompok yang dibahas pada tiap file tersebut.

Umumnya kita membaca file-file pdf karena memang lebih simple daripada harus membacanya dalam format cetak. Bayangkan untuk satu judul buku yang bisa ratusan halaman.

2 file .pdf yang digabung jadi satu dengan pdftk
Jika banyak buku, pastinya akan menumpuk di ruangan kita, tapi dengan format digital .pdf ini kita bisa mendapatkan keuntungan. Lebih simpel tanpa mengorbankan banyak ruang.

Dan yang asik lagi, file-file tersebut bisa kita gabungkan menjadi satu file .pdf tersendiri. Kebetulan saya menggunakan linux Ubuntu 13.10, tentunya harus menggunakan tool yang memang bisa berjalan dengannya.

Caranya :

  1. Install pdftk - sudo apt-get install pdftk (tunggu sampai selesai)
  2. Masuk ke folder tempat kita akan menyatukan file-file pdf tersebut, misalnya di "joherujo@joherujo-desktop:~/Documents/PDF/CI/Ci Combine" maka masukklah ke folder tersebut dengan perintah cd
  3. Gabungkan file-file pdf dengan format pdftk *.pdf  cat output nama-file-pdf-baru.pdf

pdftk *.pdf  cat output combine-ci.pdf

Tunggu sampai prosesnya selesai, maka kita akan mendapatkan satu file pdf baru yaitu combine-ci.pdf

Isi Folder file-file .pdf

Keterangan contoh

  1. Dalam contoh tersebut kita coba menggabungkan dua buah file .pdf yang masing masing memiliki 125 halaman dan 257 halaman.
  2. Setelah kedua file tersebut digabungkan menjadi satu, maka kita memperoleh sebuah file baru yaitu combine-ci.pdf dengan 382 halaman yang mana jumlah 382 halaman tersebut merupakan penggabungan dari 125+257 halaman (2 file .pdf)
  3. Apabila kita liat foldernya, maka saat ini terdapat 3 buah file .pdf, yaitu 2 file asli dan 1 file setelah penggabungan
Untuk mengetahui perintah selengkapnya dari pdftk ini, kita bisa menggunaan perintah man pdftk

Yapp, demikian sedikit tips untuk menggabungkan file-file .pdf menjadi satu single file .pdf :)

0 Development Release: OpenMandriva Lx 2014.0 Alpha 2

The OpenMandriva distribution is a full-featured Linux desktop and server, sponsored by the OpenMandriva Association. It is based on ROSA, a Russian Linux distribution project which forked Mandriva Linux in 2012, incorporating many of Mandriva's original tools and utilities and adding in-house enhancements.

The goal of OpenMandriva is to facilitate the creation, improvement, promotion and distribution of free and open-source software in general, and OpenMandriva projects in particular.

Kate Lebedeff has announced the availability of the second alpha release of OpenMandriva Lx 2014.0: "OpenMandriva Lx 2014 alpha 2 is here. To keep up to high standards we have decided to move the beta to the RC1 date and have the alpha 2 today, to deliver more fun to you. This change does not affect the final release date. 

 OpenMandriva Lx 2014.0 has been improving with every iteration – we've tried to make sure that your system works in a stable yet powerful manner. The kernel has been upgraded to 3.12.13 nrjQL – a powerful variant of the 3.12.13 kernel. 

The CPU and RCU have been configured with full pre-emption and boost mode, while we've also added the CK1 and BFQ patchsets to provide optimisations (including a better CPU load scheduler, better disk I/O scheduler, a better memory manager via UKSM, and TuxOnIce for better suspension and hibernation), designed with desktop system performance and responsiveness in mind."

0 Puppy Linux 5.7 "Slacko" - Released

Puppy Linux is yet another Linux distribution. What's different here is that Puppy is extraordinarily small, yet quite full-featured. Puppy boots into a ramdisk and, unlike live CD distributions that have to keep pulling stuff off the CD, it loads into RAM. This means that all applications start in the blink of an eye and respond to user input instantly.

Puppy Linux has the ability to boot off a flash card or any USB memory device, CDROM, Zip disk or LS/120/240 Superdisk, floppy disks, internal hard drive. It can even use a multisession formatted CD-RW/DVD-RW to save everything back to the CD/DVD with no hard drive required at all.

Puppy's Desktop
Puppy Linux 5.7 "Slacko" edition, a small and fast distribution built from and compatible with Slackware's binary packages, has been released as the "flagship" Puppy release. From the release announcement: "Slacko Puppy is built from a 'Puppy builder' system named Woof, which can build a Puppy Linux distribution from the binary packages of any other distro. There are many 'puppies' built with Woof, including Precise, Wary, Racy, and Slacko. A new release of Slacko Puppy Linux is out! Slacko Puppy is built from Slackware-14.0 binary TXZ packages, hence has binary compatibility with Slackware and access to the Slackware, Salix and Slacky package repositories. More comprehensive release notes and documentation of known issues are available. Slacko 5.7 is the first Puppy built from the woof-CE build system, forked from Barry Kauler's Woof late last year after he announced his retirement from Puppy development. It is the natural progression of Slacko 5.6 with the added features introduced to woof-CE." More links for readers to follow can be found on Barry Kauler's blog. Download: slacko-5.7-NO-pae.iso (161MB, MD5), slacko-5.7.0-PAE.iso (162MB, MD5).

0 Convert Multi Image Dengan Satu Baris Perintah

Adakalanya kita harus mengonvert banyak file image untuk keperluan tertentu. Umumnya kita melakukan konversi tersebut adalah karena file-file yang  dimaksud memiliki ukuran yang relative besar.

Untuk kebutuhan blog atau website misalnya, kita membutuhkan file-file yang memiliki volume kecil, tetapi file yang kita miliki memiliki ukuran yang besar, sehingga kita harus meresize ukurannya.

Jika itu cuma satu atau beberapa file, mungkin tidak menjadi masalah. Lalu bagaimana jika file yang harus kita resize tersebut puluhan atau ratusan?

Salah satu caranya adalah dengan menggunakan imagemagick. Kita bisa menggunakan baris perintah berikut :

for file in *.jpg; do convert -resize 800x600 -- "$file" "${file%%.jpg}-resized.jpg"; done
Perintah tersebut akan meresize file image menjadi 800x600 px dan memberikan nama file baru *-resized.jpg

Masih bingung? Coba lihat ini
Resize *.jpg - 800x600px & rename ke *-resized.jpg
Dari ilustrasi diatas bisa kita liat bahwa semua file *.jpg di resize dan mendapatkan nama baru menjadi *.resized.jpg tentunya dengan volume yang jauh lebih kecil.

0 Setup Shoutcast Server dan Solusi ./sc_serv no such file or directory

Pernah suatu kali ingin menginstall shoutcast  untuk server radio streaming server di ubuntu 12.04, semua konfigurasi telah dilakukan pada file sc_serv.conf.

Konfigurasi tersebut antara lain :
  • password radio
  • jumlah pendengar maksimal
  • port yang digunakan oleh shoutcast server

Ketika menjalankan shoutcast server dengan ./sc_serv ternyata yang keluar adalah error message ./sc_serv no such file or directory

Kenapa error tersebut bisa muncul? Ternyata error tersebut diakibatkan belum terinstallnya ia32lib pada server 12.04.

Untuk mengatasinya tentu harus menginstall ia32-libs tersebut dengan menggunakan perintah :

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

Saya berharap setelah installasi berhasil maka bisa segera menjalankan shoutcast server, tetapi ternyata masalah baru muncul lagi karena muncul pesan error tidak adanya libssl1.0.0 di server. Internal Error, No file name for libssl1.0.0
Alhasil, kembali harus muter otak untuk mengatasinya karena memang setiap kali menginstall aplikasi via terminal  error tersebut muncul , muncul lagi.. lagi.. lagi.. dan lagi.. huff.. cape deh :(

Alhamdulillah, setelah googling sana sini bisa menemukan cara untuk mengatasi error tersebut dengan mengetikkan perintah berikut :

sudo dpkg --configure -a

Menunggu sampai prosesnya selesai, kemudian kembali saya coba install ia32-libs yang gagal diinstall tadi.

Shoutcast Server berhasil dijalankan

Dan.. berhasil :) woow.. syukur alhamdulillah..

Karena ia32-libs telah berhasil diinstall, maka untuk menjalankan shoutcast server di ubuntu server 12.04 64 bit, kembali saya menjalankannya dengan perintah diatas tadi yaitu :


Dan tra.. la.. la..
Berhasil :)

*Note : Radio streaming tersebut hanya sementara & disetup untuk artikel ini
