Well, it has been a long time since I have posted here. I have been tossing around some ideas for things to post, but haven’t really wanted to do a lot of sharing lately. What do you want to see here?
So I had my first CT scan with the dye for contrast today. Well, the dye gives you a “hot flash”. I have to say, the sensation is very odd and I am glad that I don’t get those normally. Oh, and just in case you didn’t know, I really don’t like needles. The EKG wasn’t difficult until the sticky pads were removed. According to the nurse, I am “a fuzzy bear” and you can imagine what happens during the removal of sticky pads on a fuzzy bear. Well, I would rather have those pads removed ten times before getting pricked with a needle, much less having an IV. At least I am done being poked for the day.
For some reason, I always forget the command to get to the graphical package manager in CentOS 6.2, so I wanted to share it with you for future reference. The installed graphical package manager is gpk-application
I was tired of having to type my password everytime my screen saver came on while I was using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Desktop. Unfortunately they don’t make this easy any longer. Here is what you will need to do to remove the screen saver lock.
Open a terminal and enter this command:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.screensaver lock-enabled false
The lock has been removed!
How to install Gnome Shell so you can use Gnome Classic instead of Unity
Here’s how you can use Gnome Classic instead of Unity in Ubuntu 12.04:
1. Launch Synaptic.
2. Type in “gnome shell” without the quotes into the search box.
3. When you find Gnome Shell, right click, then click the Install button.
4. After the install is complete, logout out of Ubuntu 12.04.
5. Choose Gnome Classic from the login screen and you’ll use that instead of Unity for your desktop environment in Ubuntu 12.04.
