Choqok 1.0b3 Released


Choqok 1.0 beta 3 has been released by the developer. There has been numerous bug fixes and also improvements on this beta releases such as:
  • Better nick name detection.
  • Better URL detection.
  • Fetching Friends List problems fixed.
  • UnTiny plugin can use untiny.com service instead of its generic way (Configurable)
  • Using the Choqok way to show repeated dents/tweets made optional (Default is Twitter way)
  • Confirm dialog for Re tweet
  • When KWallet isn’t available, Choqok will store secrets in text files (Not plain text, Base64)
  • Choqok 1.0Beta2 was needs kdelibs 4.5 , We changed this to work with 4.4 too.
I have build this package using SlackBuild script and it's working fine on my desktop. I will install this application on my laptop and workstation tomorrow.

FYI, it would be great if you integrate Choqok to KWallet or you will have to re-authenticate to Twitter / Identi.Ca everytime you restart your application. In the past, i was wondering why do my credentials seems to be lost. I remembered that i skipped the KWallet integration in the past Rolling

In general, it works, except for one problem, when your computer is connecting to the Internet through a proxy.

My workstation at my office is connected to the Internet through a proxy, so i can't use normal rsync to work normally. I browsed the web and i found this site which tells us about how we should modify our squid configuration to allow rsync connection from any computer from our local networks. I asked my sysadmin to try this script. He agreed and he updated the squid configuration on the proxy.

Next, i need to update my environment variable RSYNC_PROXY to the host of the proxy and also the port. Let's say you are running a proxy on 192.168.1.1 and port 8080, then you need to run …

NVidia Legacy Unix Driver Update

NVidia has released an updated legacy drivers to support X.Org 1.19 with ABI 23. It has been mentioned in the UNIX drivers, but you can directly find the drivers from the links below:
NVidia 304.134 (x86x86_64)NVidia 340.101 (x86, x86_64) I have tested the 304.134 driver and it's working great here. I can finally remove x from my /etc/slackpkg/blacklist file since it's a showstopper for me.
Aside from legacy driver, NVidia has also released their latest driver 375.26 (x86, x86_64), which brings support for newer cards and also many new features (including X.Org 1.19 with ABI 23 support).
