How to add an OpenType Font (OTF) to Ubuntu

I’ve been working with a colleague on getting a logo designed for the game company he has recently started. The designer that was hired used a font called “Exo” in the logo. The source file was given to us in a .svg file. And in order to view the logo with the correct font, I… Continue Reading →

Searching on Linux – ‘grep’ command

So I’m investigating an Eclipse error I’m getting on my dev laptop and need to search for a bit of text in a file that may be in a hidden file somewhere in my workspace. I don’t trust Eclipse’s global File search (Ctrl + H) to be thorough enough for my needs. I need to… Continue Reading →

Raspberry Pi and XBMC: A wasted opportunity

I bought a Raspberry Pi for myself this Fall in order to play around with the minicomputer that is so popular these days as an opportunity to teach myself a little more about Linux, hardware, and networking. I read many many posts about lots of individuals running the Pi as a media server for their… Continue Reading →

Lost Java

Somehow, I broke my Fedora installation this weekend. After having a great time getting started on my Gravatar project this past Saturday, I settled in for some Labor Day programming yesterday. However, as soon as I tried to open Eclipse, I was given an error message telling me that the command ‘java’ was not in the… Continue Reading →

Distro hop

I recently decided to try another Linux distribution. This time I went with the Fedora Xfce spin in 64-bit flavor. My favorite distribution yet! Miles ahead of the KDE environment and better looking and more intuitive than Mint LXDE. Plus its available in 64-bit. Which does absolutely nothing for me, but still. Too bad I wasn’t… Continue Reading →

‘new’ linux command jammed into my grey pudding

I have begun working with Codeigniter 2.1.0 and am trying to wrap head around what exactly is required for an app to be deployed onto a server. This required me to move some files and folders around. Unfortunately I set up my XAMPP installation as ‘root’, so I can’t use the lovely file manager-type windows in… Continue Reading →

Fedora KDE out, Mint LXDE in

Everything looks cool so far on my comic site so far. No issues with ComicPress plugin I’m using there. It just looks terrible, as I’m using the out-of-the-box theme. I hope at some point I’ll be able to start looking at learning to theme WordPress sites. But enough about that! This past weekend I finally… Continue Reading →

Switching gears

I started a new job this week. It is with a startup company here in Greenville, SC called Green Cloud Technologies. I am super-excited to be here and away from that crap company Windstream! I’ve had a few changes in my career growth as a result of this job change. First, they didn’t have any… Continue Reading →

Runaway upload conclusion

So after I stopped the FTP upload from my inappropriate account , I needed to delete the 726 megs of “illegal” uploads. I remembered the ‘rmdir’ command, but that only works on empty directories. I remember this fact as soon as I was given the ‘rmdir: failed to remove `Pictures/’: Directory not empty” response on… Continue Reading →

Linux command of the day

So I decided to take advantage of the free 50Gb storage space that DreamHost offers all of its webhosting customers today. Unfortunately, I didn’t understand that I needed to use a special user account that Dreamhost provides for me for this activity. So I am currently uploading approximately 25Gb of pictures to my account on… Continue Reading →
