problem with your yahoo account in Pidgin?

Posted by aboelnour on June 20, 2009


Peace be upon you:

so in last few days i faced a problem with my “Pidgin Internet Messenger”


for whom don’t know “Pidgin” Pidgin is a powerful messenger used specially by ubuntu users and it is a free chat client used by millions. Connect to AIM, MSN, Yahoo, and more chat networks all at once.


it was when i try i open my yahoo account it take a lot of time to connect and it doesn’t open so i think it is a problem with my Internet connection

by chance when i was browsing a web site I found that this problem is problem from the program itself not from the connection & i know its solution

the solution is :

run in terminal :

sudo gedit /etc/hosts

then edit at last this line in the opened file then save then exit scs.msg.yahoo.com

then restart your Pidgin and it will work isa

Note: this is a bug and we wait for the next version of Pidgin which will be more improved


By the way how many one use Pidgin and missed the “BUZZ” button ? 😀

so you can make a “BUZ” button in your Pidgin instead of write “/buzz”

1) download this plug in from here

2) extract the folder and open it you will find a file called “attentionbutton.so”

copy it in


by running in terminal

gksudo nautilus

then open your Pidgin then Tools then Plugins then mark on

Attention Button 0.3 as shown in this photo

so that is the end

if you have any comments let my know

thanks for reading,

Opera_logo_CMYKPeace be upon you:

hi there, so while i browsing the web i found that Opera published a new version of Opera web browser called Opera Unite it is an amazing web browser not only that it is faster than the last version or more organized it isn’t all things. the new version offers a new service to share your folders , videos or sounds with your friends !!! yes a web server with your web browser,

so what is the new?

what’s the new!!!!!  when you want to share any thing with your friends you need to upload it to a third party site and you have a limited number of downloads and a lot of  problems

so how can i start?

1 – you can download your suitable version from http://labs.opera.com/news/2009/06/16/ and then select your OS if you choose linux 😀  you will choose your (processor type – OS type) then choose any package has the extension  .deb

2 – After downloading the package and installing it normally open it

then choose panels icon  from upper left corner

a web page like this should appear to you :


then you press on the “Home”

a web page like this should appear to you :


you will required to registration insert a User name & password & a real Email 😀 then press next

After registration and complete the next steps you can start to use the services in Fig.1 😀 choose as an example “File sharing” you will be required to select a folder to share (it must be a folder) select the folder and press open


After finishing this step you can share by press on “File sharing”

a web page like this should appear to you :


you will find a statement say:

send this URL to share the files —-> this link which you can share throw it by giving it to your friend

you will find also “Access control” —–> which you can determine who can share this files

other services:

  • You could play games and chat to your friends  directly using the service
  • You can work with others on files such as data and images (think wikis or drawing applications), and then work with those files offline if you wish, before sharing them again at a later date

Setup web development environment (XAMPP)

Posted by aboelnour on June 15, 2009


Peace be upon you:

hi there, so in last few days it was required from me a PHP project , so a problem faced me that the PHP is a server side languge , so i need a server to run my project it will along story to creat a web server to run a project , so my friend khaled hady offered a good solution to use  XAMPP and he explained it in his blog http://war2aw2lm.blogspot.com/2009/06/3-in-1-xampp-php-mysql-apache.html but he explianed it in windows but i using ubuntu so i decided to begin the journey to install the XAMPP in ubuntu later i discover it is easy

Note: This guide is aimed at a development environment only and should not be used as a public web server (we can explain it in another article)


  1. Download version of XAMPP from
    (Source URL: http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-linux.html#374)
  2. Extract the archive to /opt  (make sure you are in the directory that you downloaded the archive to)

    sudo tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.5.3a.tar.gz -C /opt

To start it up, open a terminal and type this:

sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start

To stop it, open a terminal and type this:

sudo /opt/lampp/lampp stop
To see additional commands, open a terminal and type this:

sudo /opt/lampp/lampp
To use the sweet gtk/python control panel:

Run in a terminal:

gedit ~/.local/share/applications/xampp-control-panel.desktop
Paste the following into the open file and save and exit.

[Desktop Entry]
Comment=Start/Stop XAMPP
Name=XAMPP Control Panel
Exec=gksudo "python /opt/lampp/share/xampp-control-panel/xampp-control-panel.py"
Name[en_CA]=XAMPP Control Panel
Comment[en_CA]=Start/Stop XAMPP
“XAMPP Control Panel” will show up in your applications menu under Internet or others.
Test to see if XAMPP is running
Once XAMPP is up and running open firefox and go to: http://localhost/
You should see the XAMPP test page.
Location of files and uploading

XAMPP by default uses /opt/lampp/htdocs as the root web directory. The easiest way to start working on files is to link a folder in your home directory(like an IDE work space) into this directory.

my work space path:/home/aboelnour/NetBeansProjects/moodle
Link to /opt/lampp/htdocs
sudo ln -s ~/NetBeansProjects/moodle /opt/lampp/htdocs/$USER
Now any files and folders your work space will be published to your personal web server.
Dealing with PHP and mySQL with XAMPP in ubuntu:
  1. you can deal with mySQL directly just tube in your browser http://localhost/phpmyadmin/
  2. you can deal with PHP by using the additional commands you will find  to install PHP4 & PHP5
so that’s it if you have any problems or comments or feedback please let me know & don’t hesitated
best wishes,
To start it up, open a terminal and type this:

sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
