Learn Java with Netbeans on Ubuntu

I’ve made a decision to learn Java again to prepare myself before graduated. Flash back my memory about this programming language (just the basic).

But this time I wanna learn on my ubuntu machine. And this is my a little note, when I was installing Java+Netbeans on Ubuntu.

1. Install the latest JDK

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk

To verify that the installation was successful, execute

You may get the result like this:

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_03-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0_03-b05, mixed mode, sharing)

To make sure that you use Java from Sun, execute

sudo update-alternatives –config java

Set JAVA_HOME path by add this line at the bottom of file /etc/environment


or just execute

export JAVA_HOME=”/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun”

And You may include some packages to install, like :

  1. sun-java6-bin – Contains the binaries
  2. sun-java6-demo – Contains demos and examples
  3. sun-java6-doc – Contains the documentation
  4. sun-java6-fonts – Contains the Lucida TrueType fonts from the JRE
  5. sun-java6-jre – Contains the metapackage for the JRE
  6. sun-java6-plugin – Contains the plug-in for Mozilla-based browsers

Play DoTA (a.k.a Warcraft) on Ubuntu

Yes.., We can play dota on ubuntu now.

I have tried with ubuntu 7.04 plus WINE (Wine Is Not Emulator). But I didn’t take wine from winehq, instead of I used from kambing repository.
Now, the last version of wine is wine 0.9.39, but from the kambing it’s wine 0.9.33. So if u want to follow me, make sure u have the same version of wine(0.9.33)

chox@orangemachine:~$ wine –version

First, we have to install wine

chox@orangemachine:~$ sudo apt-get install wine

Then u must prepare the path directory of warcraft from windows partition. I meant, we had installed warcraft on windows partition. So we dont need install it again on ubuntu with wine. Or we can just copy it from your windows partition to your ubuntu partition.
Example, I had installed at E:/games/warcraft/ (on windows partition), on ubuntu that path refers to /media/hda6/games/warcraft (it means /media/hda6/ is my “E” partition on windows. Make sure for your own).

The last, you just make a launcher (a.k.a shortcut) from your ubuntu desktop
Right click(at your desktop) -> Create Launcher.


At Launcher Window:
– Type : Application
– Fill a name for your shortcut, ex DoTA
– Command : wine /media/hda6/games/warcraft/Frozen\ Throne.exe

Finished, we can play it just double click the “DoTA” launcher at your desktop.
I hope that tutor will work at your computer.
Enjoy it..

Printer Pixma iP1700 Can Work With Ubuntu

Finaly, i have made my printer (Pixma iP1700) can work with ubuntu 7.04 (fesity fawn)

Using iP2200 driver for linux, now iP1700 can print smoothly.

But im not using packages from the vendor, instead im using the packages from this.

This is my steps how to install the driver (using terminal)
1. Add the repository
$ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

-Add this 2 following lines(sources.list)
deb ./
deb-src ./

2. Update
$sudo apt-get update

3. Install packages
$sudo apt-get install libcnbj-2.6 bjfilter-2.6 pstocanonbj

4.Add the printer (make sure to turn on the printer)
-From your browser, input this URL: http://localhost:631
-Choose “Administration” Menu
-Add “Canon iP1700 (Canon iP1700 USB #1)” from the list
-Add model to Canon iP2200 Ver.2.60
-Leave the configuration with click “Set Printer Options”

5.Testing printer
-Click the “Print Test Page” Button

6. Finish

I think there is no difference between packages from vendor and packages that i used.
You must change the packages first from .rpm to .deb with ‘alien’ command, if you use the packages form vendor
And you must sure to set the “Output Resolution” to 600 dpi. Change it to higher level, make printer cannot work.

There is some references:
2.Driver Printer Canon ip1700 di Linux

Don’t believe that gossip!!!
I just have made one working.
Try linux as soon as posible, trust me..
