Gnome 3.14 will come with Fedora 21, if there is any repo for the current release of fedora (20) please add it to the comments. There are links in the gnome sites where you can get a taste of it with fedora.

Vagrant for developers

I have been using vagrant for a week now and I must say it’s a really nice tool. Vagrant for those who don’t know, it’s basically a virtual machine (based on VirtualBox but has also other options).

Why do i find it cool

– Fast to setup (You can choose one of the images from vagrantcloud and will install it in a few min)

– Have the same environment in different operating system (no matter if you start developing in linux and end up developing under windows, you can use the same setup)

– Share the same environment with other developers

– Share your http/ssh or other port in the internet (Vagrantcloud generates a url where you can send other people to your vm)

These are just some of the things I’ve been using and enjoyed with vagrant it has more features and it is getting better every time.




Xfce right click menu lag

If you use xfce, on some version if you right click on the desktop it might delay for a second, there’s an easy fix for that, all you need to do is Right click on the desktop “Desktop Settings” and “Menus” tab, and  disable “Show applications icons.”.

Alfresco Bulk Filesystem Import Tool

post from my other blog at http://ylbd.blogspot.com/


get the tool



use the alfresco module managing tool




Installation Steps

The following steps describe how to download and install the Alfresco Bulk Filesystem Import Tool:

  1. Download the latest AMP file containing the tool from here
  2. Shutdown your Alfresco instance (use the .sh inside your alfreso install folder)
  3. Make a backup of the original alfresco.war file. On Tomcat, this is located in ${ALFRESCO_HOME}/tomcat/webapps
  4. Use the Alfresco Module Management Tool to install the AMP file obtained in step 1
  5. Restart Alfresco, watching the log carefully for errors

Running the MMT

Run the following command:

  java -jar alfresco-mmt-2.1.jar [args]

It is compatible with V2.0 WAR files and above.

MMT Commands

The MMT has a number of commands. Details of these are outlined below:


usage: install <AMPFileLocation> <WARFileLocation> [options]

valid options:

   -verbose   : enable verbose output
   -directory : indicates that the amp file location specified is a directory.
                All amp files found in the directory and its sub directories are installed.
   -force     : forces installation of AMP regardless of currently installed module version
   -preview   : previews installation of AMP without modifying WAR file
   -nobackup  : indicates that no backup should be made of the WAR


Stop Alfresco

:~/alfresco-4.0.d-1$ ./ctlscript.sh stop

/home/ardian/alfresco-4.0.d-1/apache-tomcat/scripts/ctl.sh : tomcat not running

/home/ardian/alfresco-4.0.d-1/mysql/scripts/ctl.sh : mysql stopped


Check if alfresco is running


ardian@arbk-share:~/alfresco-4.0.d-1$ ps -ef | grep alfresco

ardian   18815 18168  0 11:06 pts/2    00:00:00 grep –color=auto alfresco


locate where the alfresco-mmt-2.1.jar is usually its under alfresco install dir in the bin/ 

For me its /alfresco-4.0.d-1/apps/alfresco


java -jar alfresco-mmt.jar install ~/alfresco-bulk-filesystem-import-1.1-ALF40.amp ~/alfresco-4.0.d-1/apache-tomcat/webapps/alfresco.war


list the modules


java -jar alfresco-mmt.jar list ~/alfresco-4.0.d-1/apache-tomcat/webapps/alfresco.war
