Padanan kata

Filed under: FOSS @ 12:54 pm

Beberapa bulan ini saya sedang mencoba menerjemahkan sebuah perangkat lunak ke dalam Bahasa Indonesia, ternyata gampang-gampang susah ya? :D

Berikut adalah beberapa padanan yang saya coba terjemahkan sendiri dari apa yang sudah ada di sini atau sini. Entah salah atau benar karena ini inisiatif tersendiri, tanpa menggunakan Kamus teBal Besar Bahasa Indonesia (KBBI) atau tempat lainnya sebagai landasannya. Mudah-mudahan gak salah-salah amat lah. Tapi bila ada saran atau kritik, dipersilakan loh, walaupun saya bukan orang yang tepat untuk ditanyai tentang ini. :)

apply = terapkan
built-in = bawaan
keystrokes = usapan kunci
mask = pelindung
overwrite = timpa tulisan
overview = tilik umum
parent = induk
script = manuskrip
synchronization = selarasi
supplement = pelengkap
skip = lewatkan
shortcut = tombol pintas

Namun ke depannya dalam proses penerjemahan ini ternyata mengalami kebimbangan, sayanya. Di Windows XP berbahasa Indonesia, terdapat perbedaan padanan yang digunakan oleh ini atau itu. Beberapa di antaranya adalah, kalau tidak salah:

RSSOwl, let the owl feed you!

Filed under: FOSS @ 3:16 pm

There’s a lot enough for me to open websites each day, well though not that much but can take more attention than work I have on desk. :)) Meanwhile this brain can’t store everything, with things around. So I’ve decided to use RSS reader as a choice.

For you who don’t know what RSS is, RSS stands for Rich Site Summary though some mentioned it as Really Simple Syndication. With RSS you can easily surf the “world” without bothering to remember each URLs you visited. Well I know, you can use bookmark for this. But don’t you bother to click all the bookmarks you have each time, meanwhile there are no new news on that website? With RSS you can sit nice and take a look only if there are new news on the websites you have been feed before.

To feed the websites that support RSS, you can use RSS reader. Lately, I have tried one and it’s quite nice, I think. I used RSSOwl on this case. This easy-to-install program made by written in Java, so it’s cross platform. You can use it on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Linux 64 Bit and Solaris. But make sure to have Java Environment
installed on the system to make the Graphical User Interface working, preferably 1.4.2 or 1.5.x version. FYI, I used RSSOwl 1.2.2. Beside that, you can also use liferea, Straw, Blam or Akregrator. The applications I just mentioned above were running on Linux. :)

To bring GRUB back again…

Filed under: FOSS @ 8:56 pm

Today I have to reinstall my Windows 2003 over my Ubuntu installation, a dual-boot Operating System on a harddrive. The partition itself /dev/hda1 for Windows’s partition, /dev/hda5 for data (a FAT32 partition), /dev/hda6 for Ubuntu and /dev/hda7 for the swap partition.

To use the dual-boot using boot loader that came from Linux, which can be GRUB or LILO, firstable you should install Windows first then continue with your Linux’s installation. By this, hopefully your hands will not be “dirtier”. By default, GRUB will be install after you have successfully installing Ubuntu.

To be short, I have to install Windows again. By this, if you have GRUB installed (like me), the GRUB will be replace by Windows boot loader. This is what I did to recover the GRUB without have to install the Ubuntu again. :D

1. Get any Live-CD you have, Knoppix will be great.
2. Boot to Knoppix.
3. Get to the terminal, by pressing Alt+F2 then type ‘xterm’ (without quote) in the box appeared.
4. Change the user priviledge to root.
5. Type on the terminal:
; below command is use to make a directory call disk

# mkdir /disk

; below command is used to mount your Linux’s partition to /disk, you can change the partition according to your installation respectevely.

# mount /dev/hda6 /disk

; below command is used to get in to your root directory of your Linux’s partition.

# chroot /disk

; below command is used to install the GRUB on the MBR. You can change to the boot partition you might have made previously.

# grub-install /dev/hda

6. Reboot your computer.

Trala!!! Now you have your GRUB again. <:-p

Well, now it’s time to get back to the console again. :P

Litle thing about FTP

Filed under: FOSS @ 10:25 pm

FTP stands up for File Transfer Protocol, which is a protocol specialized for transfering (uploading and downloading) files. It uses port 20 which is for FTP data and 21 which is for FTP control. It works on layer 4 which is the Transport Layer of OSI Layers, layers of how networking can be establish and it’s working on Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), so its file can be receive as one piece of file as it sent because of TCP’s characteristics, connection-oriented, guarantees it.

For its use, at least there are two computers connected to the network, one act as FTP Server and the other one as FTP Client. For FTP Server you can use one of this Server, inorderly: ProFTPd, PureFTPd, VSFTPd or WU-FTPd . And for the clients, they don’t need anything actually, they already have the basic tools, the Command Line Interface (CLI) which is already included in your operating system. But the use of CLI should take time for regular users to get used to it. To prevent wasting time to learn the CLI, the regular users can use the FTP Clients application. You can select one of this, inorderly: KBear, gFTP, Kasablanca, DPS-FTP or FTPCube . One thing for sure I should mention that the applications above are especially for Operating System GNU/Linux.

So, happy transferring file over the net!

Fixing my GNOME log in

Filed under: FOSS @ 5:31 pm

It was a day before Idul Fitri, I tried to install SuSE 9.3 to replace my not-so-old OS Fedora Core 4 on my PC with motherboard ASUS CUSL-2C and Pentium III 800 Mhz inside. Beside I want to change it, I also already made a word to install it. :D After I installed Windows 2000 Professional because of the previous one has “NTLDR is missing”, I installed SuSe 9.3. Everything went just fine until don’t-know-what-happened, I can’t log in to my desktop environment GNOME and other desktop environment too, both as a user and root. It has an error message like this on a dialog box with an option to see the .xsession-errors file or not.
