Skype 4.3 su linux Mint Maya

Dopo l’aggiornamento alla versione 4.3 attraverso Synaptic ho avuto questi problemi:

  1. menu_proxy_module_load ubuntu non verniva caricato correttamente;
  2. dopo il  Log in l’applicazione andava in crash.

Queste le soluzioni:

  1.  sudo apt-get install appmenu-gtk:i386;
  2. copy /home/$user$/.Skype to /home/$user$/.Skype_bak.

[:it]Questa è la sintassi che ho utilizzato per importare un geodatabase ESRI (formato GDB) in un geodatabase Postgis 2.0:

ogr2ogr -f "PostgreSQL" PG:"host=hostname user=username dbname=mydb password=mypwd" mygeodb.gdb/ -a_srs EPSG:3003

PSQL command linePSQL da riga di comando

Below some commands line I used to manage spatial data:

Import shape to postgis

shp2pgsql -s epsg_code -c -g geometry_column -I -t 2D -W LATIN1 shapename schemaname.tablename | psql -h hostname -d mydb -U username

Di seguito alcuni comandi psql che uso per gestire i dati geografici:

Import shape to postgis

shp2pgsql -s epsg_code -c -g geometry_column -I -t 2D -W LATIN1 shapename schemaname.tablename | psql -h hostname -d mydb -U username

Resizing a VirtualBox 4.2 virtual Hard Disk

Here a little how to increase the dimension of  VBox machine Hard Disk (ubuntu guest and host):

1. on a terminal host execute this command:

  $VBoxManage modifyhd 'YOUR_VDI_LOCATION' --resize SIZE_IN_MEGABYTES

      tips: for the size in megabyte go to Google  and type your desired size in gigabyte to be converted to megabyte. For example: 10 GB = MB –> the       result should be 10240.

2. then I needed to physically expand the partition of the virtual disk. To do this I used the software “gparted” in the guest machine running a live CD version of my distro.
