### ubuntu 10.10 折腾控制台 | struggling with console in ubuntu 10.10

I've installed ubuntu 10.10 in my newly bought notebook, the console was perfect during installation, that was the wonderful 1366x768, as well as the beautiful splash.
I think everything was still ok just after installation, until now, I see just a blank screen, or some ugly 1024x768.
What I've done, that maybe relative, are just some tweak on grub2, and installing fglrx.
After failure in adjustment of grub2 for several times, I reboot with the live cd, and I found that vesafb is not used, and radeon is activated as the video driver.
hwinfo --framebuffer indicates that the vbe of my graphic card does not support 1366x768, however I did see that with live cd. I guess all of this should thanks to radeon and kms, while I've no idea about details.
So I just removed fglrx and rebooted.
Then come back my lovely splash and 1366x768 console.

By the way, the gnome tetris works quite well with radeon, but not fglrx.

### gnome panel 妙用一则 | A nice trick of gnome panel

Result as the picture above, quite useful when not too much things on the panel.
To make it like this, in the "properties“ dialog of the panel, cancel "expand" and select "autohide". Then drag the panel to the top-right of the screen. At last change the gconf value "/apps/panel/toplevels/<panel name>/hide_delay" to 2147483647

### 无flash收听sky.fm | Listen to sky.fm without a flash player

sky.fm是我的最爱，原来ios有个sky.fm app，但是现在连不上了。

Sky.fm is my favorite online radio, there's been a sky.fm app on ios, but has been not working these days.

Non-flash links are also provided by sky.fm, however you'll need to visit the flash player page first, then get the links. While doing this with safari on ipad, you'll be redirect to a page which asks you to install flash player.

Of course, I can get the links from another computer, but there is not such another computer.

So I googled for a while, until I found sky.fm/mobile. Quite useful, since safari would call quicktime to play the list, so I can even listen to it putting it into background.

Now I'd like to subscribe a private RSS feed, where login is necessary, you won't see anything from the feed url without login.

After wasting several minutes in Googling, I came up with an idea, that to subscribe the feed using Firefox, as it's holding my Cookies.

Then of course I succeeded.

### Firefox 强制显示书签工具栏内容 | Force displaying bookmark item in Firefox toolbars

#bookmarksBarContent .bookmark-item {
visibility: visible !important;
}

Recently I've subscribed a live feed using Firefox, I want it being displayed in my browser all the time, but I don't like the bookmark toolbar which wastes the entire line space. Therefore I drag the bookmark toolbar item to the end of the location bar.

However, that item will automatically collapse, resulting in that there's just a blank area, with an expand button, I have to view the item after expand the item, so stupid.

The solution is, by stylish:

#bookmarksBarContent .bookmark-item {
visibility: visible !important;
}

works like a charm.
