How to convert your Indic Unicode documents in to PDF - Online

Converting Indic (say, Hindi or Tamil) Unicode Word Documents in to PDF

Unicode word documents are hard to convert in to PDF. Many applications still lacks native Unicode support.

There is a nice online, free file conversion service called Zamzar that you can use to convert many file formats, including DOC/PDF of up to 100 MB size.

You have to upload your file through its simple web interface, and you will get e-mail alert with link to download converted file after a little while. Conversion from Unicode Indic (Hindi) Microsoft Word document to PDF document was indeed good, and all the formatting and web links were preserved. However, the reverse process (Unicode PDF to word file conversion) makes the document unusable since it had many errors. Still, the converted document is readable and understandable, and with little editing, you can use it.

Do not, under any circumstances, consider upgrading an XP system to Vista!



I am not saying that!

Some top rated reviewers have this opinion.


Bribing blogger story is spreading fast. Many prominent blogger out there have written about this, and more revelations are coming. Joel had written about an ‘All expenses paid trip of bloggers to meet Bill Gates'.

Joel further writes, indeed after thorough testing Windows Vista, that:

Do not, under any circumstances, consider upgrading an XP system to Vista!

Further, Paul Thurrott has his own opinion: I have some very basic (ahem) advice: Do not purchase or use Windows Vista Home Basic. It's that simple.

Recently, NYT had published a rather negative piece about Vista. Vista is in serious trouble? It is, as it seems!

Gmail = GoneMail?


For some, it was true!!

In a real bizarre incident, about 60 Gmail account holder's Gmail data - emails, contacts etc. - all had been wiped out forever!

Those 60 users might not have dreamt this, since Gmail had redefined using e-mail - Never delete e-mails, instead, archive it and search.

The incident is related to a security flaw in FireFox 2.0 browser, since these users were using it, and it is reported that they receive following message:

"This is not a mistake. All your emails and contacts have been deleted on purpose. This was a malicious attack and not an error. Have a nice day. =)"

So, if you are using Gmail, awake, and atleast, backup some really important e-mails and contact information. Gmail supports pop3 access, so better configure a mail client, and periodically download your mails to a safe location.

There is a tool called Gmail POP troubleshooter that you can download and run to auto configure your Outlook Express to download email from your Gmail Account.

How to install Firefox 2.0 in Linux?


Installing Firefox 2.0 in Linux

Firefox 2.0 is out for some time now and has proved its worth to the whole world within this short time! Traditionally, you can upgrade your existing Firefox install in Linux whenever specific builds were available later on. Since it will take some time for official release of specific build for specific Linux distribution, presently, you cannot install Firefox through traditional methods like (RPM) package updater.

Still, you can use Firefox 2.0 in your Linux installation, even without installation or package upgrade. Just follow following step-by-step guide:

Step 1 : Download Firefox 2.0 for Linux from this official Firefox download link:

http://www.mozilla.com/products/download.html?product=firefox-2.0.0.1&os=linux&lang=en-US

As you can see, the downloaded file is in compressed tar gz format. Uncompress it in any directory, in which you have read-write permission. After uncompression, it will create a directory firefox-2.0.0.1 with a subdirectory firefox.

Step 2 : Change to the directory in which you have uncompressed the files, and change to subdirectory firefox within directory firefox-2.0.0.1.

Here, you can see various files, binaries and scripts. There is a script updater which can be used to update Firefox. Here, you will find a binary file called firefox. Simply run this binary file by giving following command and your Firefox 2.0 browser will be up and running.

# ./firefox

Set the Firefox 2 as default browser of your Linux machine, and whenever you will launch your default web browser, Firefox 2.0 will be launched automatically.

Alternately, you can create a shortcut of Firefox Launcher (for firefox binary file described above) on your Linux desktop.

If you are Blogger, writing blogs then You must be dumber than High-School Kids!


And, I am not kidding!

Yes, the results were out since quite some time, and, as you can see, they are not heartening!

Scienceblog.com had held A Blogger SAT-style writing Challenge for bloggers. The Challenge ran from September 15 to September 20, 2006, where bloggers and blog readers from around the world expressed their skill at writing SAT-style essays under test conditions. They were given 20 minutes to answer a sample SAT question, and their entries were collected and sent to volunteer graders for grading.

Final ratings made Sciencelogs.com to come to obvious conclusion: It is been scientifically proved that high-school students are better writers than bloggers!

You can count this blog, and this blogger as well! :)

Microsoft applied for patent to RSS

Can an existing, in use technology can be patented?


David Berlind has written an interesting article about Microsoft's Patent saga of RSS.

Microsoft has applied to patent RSS - the Internet Content syndication system, which everybody is using since long!

The case looks similar in nature - A commercial firm tried to patent Anti-Bacterial-Properties of a herb called turmeric, which is known and in use by Indians since ages!

It is quite unlikely that this patent will be granted to Microsoft.

How to increase battery life of your Laptop?


Increasing battery time of a Laptop.

Is there any method other than working with limited processor speed?

I bet, there is none. But, according to Fredrik Andersson, ‘Undervolting' (cutting voltage to the processor) the processor (the biggest power consumer in Laptop) may increase battery time of a Laptop substantially. He has given detailed instructions to how to do it.

Well, we all know that a device's power consumption remain un-effected because when you decrease voltage, its current consumption increases. Though Fredrik had claimed that he was able to save about 19% battery power without compromising performance, still, unless there were more studies made to prove this claim, this method will remain controversial.

How to protect yourself from Phishing attacks?


Do not ignore these warning messages...

Last week, Mumbai Police arrested some Nigerians on the charges of cheating ICICI Bank and it's consumers Crores of Rupees (Millions of Dollars) through fraudulent means. They were charged that they have created fake ICICI look-alike site and send genuine users emails asking them to update their account by entering their User Name and Password at that site. The culprits then used these divulged data to transfer funds through fraudulent means and thus cheated ignorant Bank and innocent Consumers. This kind of fraud is called phishing. There are many security tools already available that you can use to detect and avoid these attacks.

Phishers create fake fraudulent sites that exactly looks like original, and are often cannot be detected by normal means. Keeping this in mind, most new browsers now have features, which upon activation, can warn you about suspecious phishing sites. They do it by comparing the web site's address you want to visit with the database of fraudulent sites. It the address matched with their database, then they give you warning, which, you can accept or ignore. Opera 9.01, FireFox 2 and Internet Explorer 7 all have this built in feature.

It is strictly advisable to consider these warnings very seriously, and DO NOT visit these sites to avoid probable phishing attacks.

How to get Windows Vista for free?


Getting Windows Vista for Free

Amit has written an interesting article: How to get Windows Vista for free.

The article depicts several ways to grab Windows Vista for free.

But, none - repeat - none will work for a normal user like me! Why? Here are some good explanations:

Way 1 : Buy a new Dell / HP PC with free Windows Vista upgrade coupon? - I already have one, and instead of buying another one, just for free upgrade to Windows Vista, I will definitely opt to buy software itself!!

Way 2 : Attend the 2007 International CES conference in Las Vegas as an exhibitor? - Well, again, I consider myself as a normal user! So, this method is out of question, and it had ONLY literary meaning to me!!!

Way 3 : Nominate yourself or ask a friend to nominate you for the Microsoft MVP program? - Ah! This thing I had always dreaming since I had gain consciousness. Amit, can you tell me, since when Microsoft started accepting nominations for normal users like me?

Way 4 : If you have participated in the Windows Vista Beta testing program and have submitted at least 1 bug report...? Again, I am normal user, no developer or no tester either. Out of question for me again!


Way 5 : Register for the PowerTogether webinars....: This seems fine for me. But, hay, they have stopped distributing free Windows Vista since ages (at least, it seems!!!) - just see the screenshot below:


Finally, the article advises that, if none of the above options work, (eventually, it will NEVER work for most of his readers) then download and install Windows Vista Transformation Pack. But this resource hungry pack will hog your system for ONLY ‘look and feel' of Windows Vista - sans features like ‘Enhanced Functionality and Security' of Windows Vista!!!! AND not advisable at all!

Any way, thanks Amit, for giving your readers a real good dream!!!!

How to configure Ubuntu Linux for Hindi Keyboard?


Configuring Keyboards in Ubuntu 6.06 Linux

Strangely, Ubuntu 6.06 Live CD ROM doesn't include Hindi Keyboard by default, whereas there are many other Indian languages keyboard options like Gujrati, Panjabi etc were included. Neither it has Hindi Interface support by default. Whereas its older version 5 had inbuilt, complete Hindi support. Probably, to accommodate other packages, Hindi language packs have been removed form this distribution, and unknowingly, Hindi Keyboard had been removed too.

Now, what will you do to install Hindi Keyboard / Hindi Language packs in Ubuntu 6.06 Linux?

Here are some simple steps described for you:

Click on Ubuntu Application menu and go to System > Administration > Language Support.

Language Support dialogue will appear. In the dialogue box, select Hindi and Click Apply. Make sure that your machine is connected to Internet.

Ubuntu's smart package installer will search Internet, find right packages for you and install the Language specific packages. Depending upon your connection speed, it may take a few minutes.

Ubuntu uses SCIM (Smart common Input method) tool for language keyboard support. When you install Hindi packages, it also installs SCIM modules and keyboard for Hindi. Now, Hindi will be added as keyboard which you can configure from System > Preferences > Keyboard menu or through System > Preferences > SCIM setup.

In Keyboard Layouts, simply choose / add Hindi Keyboard in addition to default US English Keyboard, and you are done.

SCIM does includes Inscript and Phonetic Hindi Keyboards, among which you can select your desired one. SCIM lets you change your RAW Keyboard layout, but about this, later.

How to install fonts - say, Krutidev Hindi ttf font in Linux?


Installing Fonts in Linux?

[ kate - the kde text editor working with Krutidev Hindi font]

It is quite simple, two step process.

Login as root user, then copy true-type font file to /usr/share/fonts/TTF directory and give command chkfontpath. And you are done.

The fonts installed this way will be available to all users. If you do not have root permissions, then loose no heart, you can still install fonts as a user. These fonts will be only available to the particular user, whose home directory fonts are installed). Here is the simple procedure:

Make a directory named .fonts (directory/files starts with a period remain hidden by default) by giving following command in your home directory (in general, it may be like /home/ravi for user ravi)

CD (change directory) to your home directory, in the above home directory example, command will be: #cd /home/ravi

Then give command:

#mkdir .fonts

Now copy the font(s) you install to this directory by appropriate copy command.

Alternately, in KDE, start Konqueror the file manager (or any file manager), go to your home directory (Don't worry, simply click on Home icon in Konqueror menubar, and it will take you straight to your home directory), Right Click on an empty place on Konqueror window and choose Create New > Folder and in input box that appears, fill the name .fonts as name of folder. Click OK. Now, to see this hidden folder, click on Konqueror's View menu and choose Show Hidden Files. Now, to copy true-type font(s) in this newly created directory, drag and drop true-type fonts, say KRDEV045.TTF to this .fonts directory.

Now, give following command:

#chkfontpath -a [.fonts-directory]

Please replace [.fonts-directory] with YOUR directory, for example, in above case, actual command will be:

#chkfontpath -a /home/ravi/.fonts

Now your font is ready to use in any Linux application (except some old versions of openoffice)!

Soetware Applications for physically challenged people

Some free, nice Computing tools in Linux for physically challenged people



Physically handicaps often feel difficult using computers. There are dozens of computer programs and hardware that help Physically challenged people to carry their day to day work. Stephen Hawkings uses sophisticated speech synthesizer that works with Stephen's one hand and eye movement. The software extensively uses predictive technology, and Stephen hardly miss a word even while giving complex Science and Astrology presentation and speech!

There are some nice, free software tools available in Linux platform. However, they may not be sophisticated enough, but they fulfill basic needs of many. Here are some:

Kmag : KDE accessibility package has three nice tools that helps using computers to certain category of physically challenged people. It can be installed in any Linux distribution. Kmag - Kmagnifier is one such tool that comes with Kdeaccessibility package. Kmag magnify the portion of screen, so that its visibility is enhanced. People with poor vision may find this utility very useful.

Kmouth : This utility also comes bundled with Kdeaccessibility. With the help of Kmouth, people who are unable to speak can speak through their computer. Kmouth uses predictive technology, and can use database from variety of source such as Dictionary and Previous spoken sentences and when user presses a button, Text-to-speech synthesizer speaks the selected words / sentences.

Kmousetool : This tool, as stated above, comes bundled with Kdeaccessibility package. Kmousetool helps reduce Repetitive stress injuries by clicking automatically when you pause somewhere. Persons with injured fingers may find this tool extremely helpful.

.

.

Dasher : This tool lets you input TEXT through pointing gesture. You do not need a keyboard or even mouse (when you use eye tracker hardware with it) to use this tool. Using Dasher is fun, the way we play arcade games. It also uses predictive technology and words floats past a vertical line. You simply point to those words you want, and words get typed automatically in an input box. No clicking and no keyboard inputting! With a little practice, user's can input about 39 words per minute and more! Even I, with no prior experience, was able to write a recognizable sentence in less than 5 minutes! It is equally great for Handheld, wearable computers where Keyboards and mouse are burden!

GOK : Gnome Onscreen Keyboard lets you input text in any application through mouse clicks. It even lets you give commands through Key-board shortcuts. Great tool if user cannot use keyboard due to inability or in other space constraints.

How to edit menus in KDE program menu?


Adding / removing menus from KDE start menu.



KDE has its own weird set of program menu entries, which is not very much intuitive and hence badly needs editing. At times, you need to add some extra menus for your own convenience.

You can add / remove / edit KDE start menu with some simple steps through a small program ‘kmenuedit' that comes with standard KDE installation.

To start K-menu-editor, give following command in any terminal:

# kmenuedit

Or, you can start this program through - Go to System > Configuration > Menu Editor and clock on it.

Now, select the entry that you wand to edit in the window that appears. If you want to remove some entry, click on it to select it, and then click on Edit and then click Delete. This menu will gets deleted in KDE start menu.

To add a new menu, go to File menu, then select appropriate item from - New Item, New Submenu or New Separator. For example, you want to add a new item, then click on New Item. Now give the name of that new item you want to add in the input box that appears and then fill the required info as stated in this article. You must add valid command (and may be with appropriate path) to be able to run this new menu. Click OK. It will ask for key-board shortcut. Click Cancel, since you may mesh-up with standard KDE shortcut keys. Finally, click OK, and click Save changes and you are done!

Linux Tips: How to create desktop shortcuts in Linux?

.

Creating Desktop Shortcuts in Linux..


In KDE, it is quite easy.

(1) How to add desktop shortcuts for CD / DVD?

Right click on empty place of KDE desktop and go to Create New > Link to Device and then select CD or DVD or any other device you want to make shortcut for, and click on it. A Properties dialogue box will appear where you can change default properties. But, in general you need not to change any of these, hence click on OK, and your desktop shortcut for CD or DVD is created.

(2) How to add desktop shortcuts for file / folder or an application launcher?

Right click on empty place of KDE desktop and go to Create New then click on Link to Application. A properties window will appear where you need to set properties of your program / application behavior.

Now click on General tab and click on the gear icon to change this icon to an appropriate one. In Select Icon window select the appropriate icon and click OK. Further, change the text ‘Link to Application' to the appropriate name so that it indicates the shortcut . Next click on Application and then type the command (for example, kate for KDE text editor ) that starts application and click OK. And you are done. In special cases, you need to give full path of the command, and you can also change other settings, but default settings will do the work in most cases.

How to send big files (up to 1 GB) through e-mail?


Send huge files (up to 1 GB) through e-mail!

There are many tools and e-mail plug-ins that lets you send files of size more than 10 MB (the default maximum size of Gmail) but Pando is different. It is free, efficient, and quite intuitive. It works as e-mail / messenger plug-in and delivers well. You can send individual / multiple files up to 1 GB in one go to any e-mail account that lets you store data up to that size.

See some screen shots below. Use of Pando is simple and self explanatory. You need to open file with *.pando extension to open / download the attachment, and hence it is necessary that the person who you are sending your huge attachment must also install Pando to open them. Presently, Pando works only with Internet Explorer.
