Gnome’s Run Command Dialog

November 29, 2007

Since I switched to Ubuntu, I missed a Run Command dialog ala Windows. Somehow I think it lots neater than the “classic” terminal window. Actually the dialog is provided in Add To Panel dialog. But I don’t know why it can’t be placed on Gnome’s main menu. It kinds of a weird “policy” of Gnome, IMO. So, I started to google (yes, now google can be used as verb) about this issue. I found many people also miss the dialog.

Then, google took me to this blog. The blog owner has a small program to pop up Gnome’s Run Command dialog. As it’s a program, we are able to put its shortcut in the main menu. That’s just exactly what I need.

Happily I downloaded the source, compile it with gcc, and run it. As expected, it works. Still, there’s a but, a big but to me actually. The program is able to show the Run Command dialog but the window isn’t brought to the foreground. It’s very annoying! Logically, we expect a window would pop up in front of us each time we click on an application’s icon.

Lazarus 0.9.24 is released!

November 21, 2007

Setelah beberapa waktu lalu FreePascal melepas versi stabil 2.2.0, seperti biasa, Lazarus segera menyusul melepas versi stabilnya berdasarkan versi stabil FreePascal terakhir. Dan itu terjadi hari ini! Yaitu dgn dilepasnya Lazarus versi 0.9.24 (beta). 😀

Eits… jgn tertipu dulu ama nomor versi Lazarus yg terkesan masih “muda” itu, plus tag “beta” yg (masih) disandangnya. Proyek2 open source memang terkenal pelit ama penomoran. Tapi itu bukan berarti produk atau proyek tsb gak layak pakai. Bahkan seringkali produk2 open source itu lebih baik daripada produk2 komersil dgn nomor versi yg lebih “tua”.

Tapi, rilis ini gak terlalu ngefek buatku sih. Soalnya aku sekarang udah “kecanduan” untuk menggunakan versi development langsung dari SVN, baik itu FreePascal maupun Lazarus-nya. 😀
