Get duplicate line shortcut working in Ubuntu

Problem: The default keyboard shortcut for duplicating lines (ALT + CTRL + Up/Down) does not work
Configuration: Ubuntu Jaunty, Eclipse 3.5

This is caused by the system using the same shortcuts to move to a virtual workspace above and below. Go to System > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts and assign a different key combo for the following two actions:
Switch to workspace up
Switch to workspace down
Duplicate lines works again.

Open files in gvim in new tabs

Aim: when hitting F4 in GnomeCommander, the file will open in a new tab of the existing gvim instance:
Options1: visual:

  1. Open Gnome Commander => Settings => Options => Programs
  2. In the Edit text field put this:
    gvim -p --remote-tab-silent %s
  3. Save and restart Gnome Commander – not always needed, but helps

Option 2: editing the settings file:

  1. The file to edit is ~/.gnome2/gnome-commander
  2. Find the line :editor=blablabla and change it to :
    editor=gvim -p --remote-tab-silent %s
  3. Save and restart gnome-commander

Google reader clip

S-ar putea sa fie disponibil mai demult, dar eu azi am observat – Google pune la dispozitia userilor de reader care sunt si bloggeri un “clip” in care pot afisa articolele partajate direct pe blog. Si cum eu m-am apucat recent de feed sharing, l-am si integrat (e chiar foarte simplu si rapid). Urmeaza sa intru si pe social networks si sunt doomed 2.0.
