Linux Multimedia Studio

This is Linux Multimedia Studio. A Open Source and free full featured sound creation and mix/synthesize studio for GNU/Linux Operating Systems. That video show a example song that come with it and how to manage the interface nicely. You will hear some “audio failure” in the video due to my poor Hardware :P

So, what’s new with the new iPod Nano (2011)?

Hardware wise, nothing. Software wise there is a bunch! Let me point out some things that really mattered to me in these updates:

1.1

When I first bought my iPod Nano, that was the software (OS) version that came with it. I never really used that version, since ever since I’ve plugged my iPod on my Mac for the first time I downloaded the software update right away. But I heard that that version didn’t allowed you to shutdown the iPod, just put it to sleep, thus, lessening the battery life, very, VERY annoying.

1.2

Much better. Now you can shutdown instead of just put it to sleep. Battery life is not that great. Track order by albums is messed up after syncing with iTunes, it’s a pain in the ass to fix.

1.3

Much, much, MUCH better. It seemed to me that the battery life now last longer. Syncing your playlist now works flawlessly, the track order by albums is kept. New interface “coverflow-like” (the old one is still available), but I prefer the new one.

 

New Sports App features.

I few new wallpapers. A lot of clock themes. A lot. Some really cool, very geeky, others very elegant and traditional, some very modern, others a little weird, like the Mikey and Minni Mouse ones…

     

And… that’s about it. I feel that the experience of using the iPod became more smooth, more solid with these updates. Nice : )

[Tutorial] How to install FX Foundry on GIMP (Mac OS Lion)

Tutorial by Mike Dee.

“The Gimp filters from FX-Foundry (100 + and excellent) also work well in

Mac OS X PPC & Intel Macs (Tiger & Leopard) but do take a little effort

in Mac OS to get Gimp to register the “FX-Foundry” menu.

Steps:

(X11 for Mac OS X must be pre-installed)

Install stable “Gimp on OS X” 2.6.6 for Tiger or Leopard:

<http://gimp.lisanet.de/Website/Download.html>

DL the Gimp Help files for Mac OS X (same link as above).

Once The Gimp is installed on your Mac:

DL the FX Foundry filters: <http://gimpfx-foundry.sourceforge.net/>

Unzip package and copy the contents to:

/Users/<your-username>/.gimp-2.6/scripts

The folder “.gimp-2.6″ in your user folder is a hidden folder, one easy

method to open this folder is to launch the “Terminal” from inside the Mac

“Utilities” folder and type “ls -a” to “see” the invisible folders inside

your user folder, type “open .gimp-2.6″ (without quotes) to open the

gimp-2.6 folder. Inside this you will see the “scripts” folder.

Copy the contents of the downloaded fx-foundry zip file into the scripts

folder of this “hidden” folder.

To get The Gimp to “see” the new scripts:

Launch The Gimp.

From the “Edit” menu, choose “Preferences”

In the left-hand column, go down to “Folders”

Click small triangle “arrow-head” to left of “Folders” icon

In list below this, click “Scripts”

To the right in dialog you should see the header “Script-Fu Folders”

Below this a row of seemingly “grayed-out) icons

Click the left-most one (looks lick a document page with a down-turned

corner)

A insertion point should appear in field to the right of this.

Type “/Users/<your-username>/.gimp-2.6/Scripts” (without quotes)

Click folder to the right of this text entry field.

Its kind of odd but clicking that folder icon opens the hidden folder and

enters the path to the Scripts folder into the Folder list below in the

dialog (where you need it to actually go). Click OK in the dialog to

dismiss it.

Restart the Gimp.

You should now see a new menu, “FX-Foundry” and your new filters will be

available to enjoy.

I’m relaying these steps because:

a) I couldn’t find them for Mac OS X in a search engine (I did look).

b) Its fresh in my mind (installed them today) :-)

c) They work just as well for the Mac as for Linux and Windows, Yay!

d) Installing them on the Mac was a tad difficult in comparison to other

platforms (Gimp couldn’t see the “hidden” user folder without being told

how to find it).

dee”

P.S.: On Mac OS X Lion, the “gimp-2.6″ “doesn’t exist”, you should use “/Users/YourUsername/Library/Application Support/Gimp/Scripts” instead.

[Tip] Solution for ZTE Broadband Modems on Mac OS X Lion 10.7

Solution found! Thanks for sharing Mark! My model is a MF626 and my ISP is vivo (Brazil), but that Vodafone ZTE Driver might work on other ZTE Broadband Modem models and ISPs too. Download the Driver here: http://is.gd/FTaImq

Install it, but don’t use the Vodafone interface, use the Mac OS X Lion Network Preferences, just set up a new connection and you’re ready to go : )

Take a look on the comments below for more detailed information!

[Howto] For Mac users: Share Internet through Wi-Fi with your PS3 without a router (Works with 3G Mobile Broadband Modems)

“Okay, so I know this thread is old, but up to last month nobody had posted a solution to using the internal airport card to share the connection so I said i’d register incase anyone else was googling endlessley to find a solution.

Turn on Internet sharing:

select the network you want to share and share it via airport and give your network a name… set up a 5 digit WEP key if you want protection.

open terminal and type ifconfig en1

This will give you your router number, mine was 10.0.2.1, it will be listed next to the word inet

next type dig, this will give you your ISP’s DNS numbers (at the very bottom, next to the word server)

On your PS3 open the network settings, scan for your new network, enter the WEP key and configure the IP manually.

Under IP type the router number but add a digit to the last number, in other words, my router was 10.0.2.1, so I assigned my PS3 the IP 10.0.2.2

use the standard subnet mask of 255.255.0.0

enter the router number you found (10.0.2.1)

enter the DNS numbers found earlier.

MTU = Auto

Proxy Server = Do Not Use

UPnP = doesnt make a difference

and thats it, your done… im using my PS3 with my 3G mobile broadband shared via airport.

EDIT: After a PM I realised I completely left out the Airport settings part.

In Airport settings under TCP/IP select configure IPv4 via DHCP, and under DNS add your ISP’s DNS numbers that you found earlier.”
