Installing the Groupwise Client on Ubuntu Hardy Heron

So we use GroupWise obviously. However for the most part, I spend my time on Ubuntu these days as I like XFCE4 and Ubuntu as a whole. This is not to say I don’t use my Novell Suse Enterprise Desktop, I do, quite a lot, but its also nice to have a bit of a play with other distros from time to time.

Running Confluence on port 80 or 443 using mod_proxy_ajp

Okay, I use Confluence a lot, and think despite some of its failings in the UI department (Although they are being addressed as version 2.8 shows) its a excellent Enterprise Wiki.

Now, not wanting to arse around with Tomcat all the time, I use the standalone build generally as its quite sufficient for my purposes. The problems arise when we have remote workers, whom are behind restrictive firewall policies. So that means I have to provide the service on 443. Now you could spend a bit of time configuring Tomcat to run on said port, but thats not recommended, plus you may want to use other technologies such a PHP etc. So here is a quick how to on getting confluence up and running on port 443 on Suse Enterprise Server 10 (Al tough the same applies to most Linux distros with the exception of the convoluted config Novell apply to Apache). This post presumes you already have installed Confluence standalone and its running fine. Continue reading “Running Confluence on port 80 or 443 using mod_proxy_ajp”

Using Adobe Lightroom with Flickr Uploader

My everyday laptop runs Ubuntu, however for photo editing, I still use and prefer Photoshop. Now since I’ve gone digital, I’ve gone out an bought Adobe Lightroom. I also use Flickr a lot, so I wanted to work flickr uploader into LightRoom. One trick Adobe missed was having a decent plugin system for Lightroom, hopefully they will reconsider this in subsequent releases, however I suspect they will want to run their own little Flickr clone at some stage.

Anyhow, to get flickr integrated into lightroom, simple do the following

  1. Download and install Flickr Uploader
  2. Copy the desktop shortcut created and paste it to c:\Documents And Settings\YOUR USERNAME\Application Data\Adobe\Lightroom\Export Actions
  3. Fireup Lightroom
  4. Select a photo, then select export
  5. At the bottom of the export window, in Post Processing, select Flickr Uploader
  6. Your done

Its making my life a lot easier already. Enjoy.
