qTranslate, the multi-language plugin for WordPress-blogs, will not developed any further. Fortunately four successors (forks) are available.
In alphabetical order:
Which fork should an old qTranslate user choose? This position paper should give you some hints for your decision.
If you connected your iPhone to a Microsoft Exchange Server you are always in sync with e.g. calendar dates. But in very rare situations you get an event invitation which does not disappear from the calendar inbox after confirmation. You cannot delete it on your iPhone nor in Outlook.≡ Picture Credits
The Zemanta’s Related Posts WordPress Plug-in works very well with qTranslate. But it does not with qTranslate-Plus. Since the original qTranslate is deprecated many blogger have to switch to qTranslate-Plus. Plug-ins which works well with the original plug-in does not with the successor. The reason is the prefix of qTranslate-Plus functions in comparison to the original qTranslate. I described this in my post qTranslate-Plus Migration.
You just have to find the appropriate files which contain the qTranslate function calls. But a lot of plug-ins contain a lot of files. So it is hard to find the files in question. Zemanta’s Related Posts plug-in is such an example.
People who use qTranslate as their multi-language plug-in for WordPress run into trouble for a while. The Developer Qian Qin does not seem to work on the plug-in anymore. The last version is not compatible with the WordPress version 3.8.2 or higher. Fortunately Mirko Papa Salvatore from Prima Pagina in Italy forked qTranslate and provides qTranslate Plus.
So it is self-evident to migrate to qTranslate-Plus rather than WPML. Unfortunately the migration is not as easy as expected. This How-To describes the migration of a multi-language WordPress (WP) blog from qTranslate (qT) to qTranslate-Plus (qT+). Continue reading qTranslate-Plus migration
Version 3.8 of Octave has an unofficial and experimental GUI similar to Matlab. But on my Linux Mint 17 (Quiana), based on Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahir), I got a warning:
QInotifyFileSystemWatcherEngine::addPaths: inotify_add_watch failed: No space left on device. It does not appear in the console mode. I send a bug report and got a prompt fix. Thanks to Mike Miller of the Octave team for assistance and the fix. It was a system configuration issue and not really the fault of Octaves’s developers.
Find the fix below. It should work in Ubuntu 14.04 and in other distributions based on Ubuntu, too. Continue reading inotify_add_watch failed in Octave’s GUI
DISLIN is a very nice and well-documented 2-D and 3-D plotting framework for Fortran and some other programming languages. Furthermore DISLIN provides some widgets to create simple graphic user interfaces (GUIs). This how-to describes how to install DISLIN on an arbitrary Ubuntu system and how to compile and link a sample Fortran 90 program with the shared and static libraries.
Since Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) and DISLIN 10.2 came out, things are easier for Debian-based Systems now. However 64-bit users have to consider some points.
I updated this article for Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) and DISLIN 10.4 users. Obsolete instructions for Ubuntu 12.04 and lower as well as DISLIN 10.0 were crossed.
A new IDE for Fortran is in town. Beneath Photran the IDE Code::Blocks is available. Since Photran is specialised for Fortran, CodeBlocks is made for C/C++ programmers in the first place. But Darius Markauskas developed a plugin and provides a special Fortran version of CodeBlocks.
This How-To is for GNU/Linux and Fortran novices and shows how to install CodeBlocks for Fortran system-wide on GNU/Linux (here on Mint), compile your first program and get it run.≡ Picture Credits
Adobe allows to install Lightroom on two computers independently of the platform. You can install Lightroom on a MacBook and on a Windows-PC without breaking the license.
But it is possible to access the same photos and the same catalog from both devices?
This how-to shows how you can setup your photo pool and your Lightroom catalog to access them sequentially from a Mac OS X- and a Windows-PC.
Two scenarios will be discussed. The use of a NAS-Server from Synology with its Cloudstation service and just a external hard drive.≡ Picture Credits
It is often desired to add a link on a JDialog. E.g. for the application homepage or for a service e-mail.
Unfortunately it is not as easy as expected because Java’s Swing does not have a link component or similar at all. But it is possible to configure a JLabel to behaves as a link.
This tutorial shows Java novices how to make a link from a Swing JLabel component in Netbeans using the GUI-Buider Matisse.≡ Picture Credits
