Recently GNOME community launched GNOME 3.8 which features a lot of new features and bug fixes.

Here are few and major new feature,

1. The all new application launching view. The Frequent tab includes your most commonly used applications, which means that you don't have to spend time looking for the things you use most often. The All tab shows all your applications and also includes application folders, which contain several groups of applications. This makes it easier for you to browse your applications.

2. A revamped Searching from the Activities Overview features a new search results view, as well as new search settings. Together, these allow any application to present search results, making Activities Overview search a more powerful way to access the content that is provided by the applications. The new search settings provide control over which applications present search results as well as their order in the results list.

3. The one more nice feature introduced is Privacy and Sharing. Now with GNOME 3.8, we can customize range of new privacy and sharing settings. It allows us to control who has access to the content on computer and what information has been displayed on screen.

How to Setup locale in Linux

posted Apr 13, 2013, 1:20 AM by ಸುಧೀಂದ್ರ ಕೃಷ್ಣಮೂರ್ತಿ

Today I have installed Gnome-shell and logged in. When I tried to launch digikam application it shown below warning to me -

Your locale has changed since this album was last opened. Old locale: UTF-8, new locale: ISO-8859-1 If you have recently changed your locale, you need not be concerned. Please note that if you switched to a locale that does not support some of the filenames in your collection, these files may no longer be found in the collection. If you are sure that you want to continue, click 'Yes'. Otherwise, click 'No' and correct your locale setting before restarting digiKam.

because till this point I used KDE only.

Then I opened terminal and issued a command "locale", 
I got below output, 

Where LANGUAGE = none.

After searching in Google I found out one very nice link How to set up a clean UTF-8 environment in Linux.
It worked. A Great thanks to that blog.

If already package locale installed, To setup or configure locale need to enter below command
dpkg-reconfigure locales
it will ask for the long list of locales in which we can select required one by navigating through up/down arrow keys. In next step again it will ask for the default locale to be set, we can safely select required locale.

There is another method you can set the locale,

open terminal, 

sudo gedit /etc/locale.gen
or sudo kate /etc/locale.gen

uncomment for the required locale, save and exit
for rebuild the locale, in terminal type the following,


By default locale.conf in /etc is not present, so we can create by running the following command,

locale > /etc/locale.conf

Now, logout and login again, your required locale settings in on.

Terminalನಲ್ಲಿ MySQL database ಆಮದು/ರಫ್ತು (Import/Export) ಮಾಡುವ ಬಗೆ

Export ಮಾಡುವ ವಿಧಾನ:
ಟರ್ಮಿನಲ್ app ತೆರೆದು SSH ಮುಖಾಂತರ server ಗೆ ಲಾಗಿನ್ ಆಗಿ,
ಕೆಳಗಿನ ಕಮಾಂಡ್  type ಮಾಡಿ,
mysqldump -p -u username database_name > databasename.sql
(username  ಅಂದ್ರೆ database username not server login name )
password enter ಮಾಡಿ, ಡೇಟಾಬೇಸ್ ಎಲ್ಲಾ content ಗಳು databasename.sql ಕಡತಕ್ಕೆ ಬ್ಯಾಕಪ್ ಆಗಿರುತ್ತದೆ. ಅದನ್ನು local ಕಂಪ್ಯೂಟರ್ ಗೆ ನಕಲು ಮಾಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳಿ.

Import ಮಾಡುವ ಬಗೆ:
SSH ಮುಖಾಂತರ ಡೇಟಾಬೇಸ್ ಆಮದು ಮಾಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳಬೆಕಾಗಿರುವ server ಗೆ ಲಾಗಿನ್ ಆಗಿ,
ಮೊದಲು import ಮಾಡಿಕೊಲ್ಲಬೆಕಿರುವ ಕಡತವನ್ನು ಹೊಸ sarver ಗೆ ನಕಲು ಮಾಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳಿ.
ಒಂದುವೇಳೆ ಹೊಸ server ನಲ್ಲಿ ಡೇಟಾಬೇಸ್ ಇಲ್ಲದಿದ್ದಲ್ಲಿ, ಹೊಸದೊಂದು ಡೇಟಾಬೇಸ್ ಅನ್ನು create ಮಾಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳಿ.
ಈಗ ಕೆಳಗಿನ ಕಮಾಂಡ್  type ಮಾಡಿ
mysql -p -u username new_database_name < database_name.sql
Import ಆಗುವವರೆಗೆ ಕಾಯಿರಿ.
ಹೊಸ ಡೇಟಾಬೇಸ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಹಳೆ ಡೇಟಾಬೇಸ್ ನ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ದತ್ತಾಂಶಗಳು ಆಮದಾಗಿರುತ್ತದೆ.
