Microsoft fonts on debian/ubuntu/linux

‘sup

every now and then, i like to use linux when i’m doing some work. i even do a dual boot ubuntu on my macbook pro. because, why not?

spend a couple of days customizing my ubuntu on mbp. now, whats missing is some microsoft fonts, primarily calibri, verdana and tahoma.

verdana, trebuchet installation is quite simple. download/install ttf-mscorefonts-installer from package manager or download the .deb from here and dpkg -i that shit.

calibri and tahoma, well…you need to do a bit of work. make sure the package cabextract is already installed.

for tahoma, download IELPKTH.CAB here and move that file to /root

open up terminal and su root

mkdir /usr/share/fonts/winfont
cabextract -F '*.ttf' -d /usr/share/fonts/winfont IELPKTH.CAB

for calibri and other related fonts, download PowerPointViewer.exe here and move that file to /root

open up terminal and su root

cabextract -F ppviewer.cab PowerPointViewer.exe
cabextract -F '*.TT?' -d /usr/share/fonts/winfont ppviewer.cab
fc-cache -fv

enjoy your microsoft fonts.

Accident motor

after going to and back from work for 6-7 years by car, i was like this is enough man. traffic jams, wasting time, etc. etc. i decided to buy a motorcycle. between a kapchai and scooter, i choose scooter. probably for me, its easier to maintain. maybe a bit mahal lah but its ok.

anyways, the incident is fairly simple. i was at the main road and a car want to exit a junction. didn’t look before exiting and straight away bang me from the left. fell down and dragged for 1-2 meters. damn painful. when i saw the car exiting, i was like this is it. i’m gonna get hit. let’s just embrace it. lol.

luckily theres many people there helping me. the car driver sent me to clinic for checkup and pay some monies for the repairs. she sounds like want to blame me though but hey, the law is the law. when exiting a junction, make sure both ways is clear man.

my scooter not badly damaged. just a scratch, broken foot rest and need a handle alignment. but my pants, shirt, jacket and leather shoes are damaged though. damn love that shirt.

had to walk around with a cane for a week.

Windows 10 anniversary edition

been using windows 10 for a while now. i updated all my hardware (windows 7 and 8) to windows 10 since they got free upgrade (promotion ended on july 29). yeah, who doesn’t like free stuff eh?

overall, windows 10 is ok. responsiveness is so-so. since most of mine and my family devices are up to date, it would be fine to upgrade. if not, i’ll just stick to windows 7.

anyways, when i heard about this update, i was thinking why not try it. i don’t want to wait for the windows update, so i just download the installer and force update it. hmm…it was ok. maybe useful for people who like to keep schedule. if you want to know whats new in this update, just google for it.

Weekend project (remote car)

sup

get this remote car for free a while ago. my kid stop playing with it when he’s around 4. when his brother turned 1, i was thinking of cleaning it and power it up. unfortunately, there is some problem with it.

open it up and see whats wrong with it.

looks like some electronics parts burned and flat battery. went to jalan pasar and bought some parts and new battery. i choose a bigger amp battery than the old one. put it all together and test it out. yep, working. maybe after this, change to a better motor?

the old remote control also busted. luckily i have some spare control. i adjust the frequency to match the remote car, then all is working fine.

that is all.

Streamyx IPv6 and TP-Link TD-W8901N

lol.

router and modem for streamyx at one of my site is down because of lightning strike. bloody take out my graphic card too (i dunno lol why). my setup is protected by cal-lab sf9512-dsl lightning arrestor but the rj11 port is busted because of lightning strike before and i forgot to claim the lifetime warranty from cal-lab bandar utama (just pay RM25 + GST) to get a new one. cool, right? so, i just bypass for a while and end up with a fried electronics.

i look around at online mall and found a second hand modem/router AIO. dude offer me RM30, so i just take it. it’s tp-link td-w8901n (with ipv6 support). pics as below

then, i went to cal-lab bandar utama and change my sf9512-dsl to a refurbished unit.

setting up streamyx connection is not that hard. provided we have all the information beforehand. since i already forgot most of the settings and i heard streamyx now support ipv6, i tried google around for some tutorial. very few info and none of them have settings for ipv6.

so, if any of you use tp-link with streamyx, click continue reading for some info on how to set up your streamyx.
