MAFIAA - Browser Addon

Not entirely Ubuntu related but interesting none the less.

We all know that a while back US Government started taking over web addresses from sites which they though are infringing with piracy...

Not so long ago TorrentFreak wrote an article about a browser addon which redirects the user to the new found addresses of the named websites. Pretty handy I thought...

Nautilus Elementary Tweak theme for Ubuntu 10.10 or 11.04

simplygreat has posted a nice tweak for the theme of the Nautilus elementary which it makes it to integrate more with Ubuntu.

Here is the link to DebianArt

I also like the alternative instructions by Cybolic
About the installation, you can also just unpack "nautilus.rc" and the folder "nautilus" into $HOME/.gtk/ and put the following two lines in $HOME/.gtkrc-2.0:
include "/usr/share/themes/Ambiance/gtk-2.0/gtkrc"
include ".gtk/nautilus.rc"

Get the dropbox appindicator to work in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal

We all moved from 10.10 to 11.04 and by doing so we also adopted the new Unity interface. We all know that Unity still in infancy and still a lot of things that need fixing like this bug I reported to the Untiy Launchpad page which looks like that conky is causing it.

Some of them are bigger issues than others, and hopefully as we move forward to 11.10, Unity will be more like the interface we all expected to be, but for now we all gonna have to patch things up .

Anyway, Andrei at Webup8 has this patch for fixing the dropbox appindicator issue.
