Open your firefox and type about:config
( click ok i’ll be careful, i promise! )

Work on filter bar :

network.http.pipelining ; normally it “false”, change to “true”
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests ; normally it “4”, change to “8”
network.http.proxy.pipelining ; change from “false” to “true”
network.dns.disableIPv6 ; change from “false” to “true”
plugin.expose_full_path ; change from “false” to “true”

Create some new preferences:
( you can Right Click (RC) anywhere on the preferences panel )

Right Click > New > Integer > type nglayout.initialpaint.delay
click ok > type zero, 0 > click ok

Right Click > New > Integer > content.notify.backoffcount

HP LaserJet 1020 on Hardy Heron

Frankly, i never know that this printer can’t directly work if we installed it in HH by using direct connection. Otherwise, i always use this printer through network and it works totally well.

When i looked at this problem in google… i was shocked that this issue is there and it was an error from the bundled driver of HH ( i am totally late in figure this out )
So….the solution was I have to replace the bundled driver !!

open Terminal
type sudo bash
apt-get install build-essential { install build-essential }
wget -c http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz
{ to download the driver }
tar zxvf foo2zjs.tar.gz { extract the downloaded driver }
cd foo2zjs { change the working directory }
make { start to build the driver }
./getweb 1020 { get additional firmware }
make install { install the driver }
make install-hotplug { install hotplug }
make cups { restart cups }

done !! and Great Thanks to the resources

Simple anonymous ftp server

This time, i just wanted to create an ftp server to share some “read-only” files. If i put these files on a public samba shared, it will easily to be changed. It will not be good if you change a teaching schedule by yourself…not by the authorities.
Next example can be a master report file or master forms.

I just did :

install proftp :=> sudo apt-get install proftpd ucf
activate the anonymous section on the /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf
restart proftp :=> sudo /etc/init.d/proftpd restart
Done !!
from web browser :=> ftp://servername/

When i did not activate the anonymous section on proftpd.conf, it seemed like we can open all home folders of that server ( of course this is BAD !! ) even the ftp asked for a password.
