Open inline URLs in gedit with Open URI Context Menu

Just a quick note that I updated my Open URI Context Menu plugin for gedit.

The plugin offers a simple way to open various file paths it detects within the text you are editing.

Open URI Context Menu 0.3.0 for gedit

With the latest quick hack which I wanted to do for a long time already, it can also spawn your favorite browser with a url from the text.

Should come really handy and was a requested plugin feature on the gedit plugin list and I had a couple of mails regarding it. Thus, I really hope you enjoy it!

To install it either use the gedit-plugins-extra package from my openSUSE repository or put the contents of the archive into ~/.gnome2/gedit/plugins and make sure gedit was compiled with python support.

Last but not least the usual: I got an exorbitant amount of work to do this week…

openSUSE, GNOME and Apples on the tubez

Work, work and work. That’s how to describe the big fraction of my current schedule and the result is a decreased sexyness in post frequency on this blog (I’ll debug it).

I managed to update the applications in my openSUSE repository and most should now be available in the latest versions and build for 10.3. Also Florian was so kind to add a few new goodies there, too:

  • blueman, blueproximity
  • dsniff
  • Miro
  • gthumb
  • gedit (python enabled) and gedit-plugins(-extra)
  • rhythmbox 0.11.5
  • transmission
  • Miro
  • gfax (heavily “to be upstreamed” patched, theme support, bugfixes, loads of UI improvements)
  • gcc-d (openSUSE based D language compiler)
  • evolution-pst-import-plugin (Directly export PST in Outlook and import it in Evolution)
  • evolution-statusicon (Adds a small notification area icon to hide/show Evolution)
  • evolution-tnef-attachments (If you receive those “winmail.dat” attachments, try this)
  • gnome-device-manager (HAL based device manager)

openSUSE 11.0 is nearing completition and from what I can see it is shaping up to spawn another “this year is the year of Linux” spam flood once released.

After returning from a business trip I also noticed something pretty cool has arrived:

Hugs go out to to JP Rosevear for sending stuff to people with weired IRC nicknames.

In other news, in case you missed it, GNOME 2.22 has been released and the iPhone SDK myths have finally be unveiled.

Now back to my attempts to grow myself two additional arms for coding…

openSUSE repository updates

Started to update the openSUSE software repository today since a few packages were not building. Big thanks to Florian who updated a couple of packages with new releases, too. Factory unfortunately is broken in the base repository thus most packages won’t be available until someone fixed that. Same for the SUSE download servers right now which suffer from some hardware failure. Should be fixed in the next few days.

As a last note for today, a reminder of the one and only disco king:


Yes, he is still in business. For us regular beings who must celebrate his haircut, I’ll post a brand new track (co-production with a good old pal) on this very blog soon which will be the beginning of a series of featured releases.
