Hello from time FireTray use to keep active in the bar thunderbird gnome so I signal the presence of new email!
It looks like this:
in the absence of email

fireTray-immagine

with email notification arrived

fireTray-immagine

I wrote this article because I realized that installing certain versions of FireTray on thunderbird does not always work.

Now and then I write the respective correspondences versions make it all work:

Thunderbird 9/10/11/12/13/14/15/16   —-> firetray-0.4.0a2.xpi

NB: For version 16 will only count for incoming mail and right click and closing only one new message (the rest comes under management)

Thunderbird 8 —-> firetray-0.3.0-svn-r134M.xpi
(later update from add-ons otherwise does not go directly)

Compress pdf script with Nautilus

Posted by MD     Category: Informatica

After doing a search on the net I found that pdf file compression is quite dark!

To make life easier I created a script Nautilus (tested on version 10.04 and 11.04 of ubuntu 64bit, but working with all of them)

The script compresses the pdf looking for in the can to maintain good visual quality.

First you need to install a dependency, open the terminal and write

sudo apt-get install ghostscript

Now download the script created by me

Once you have downloaded the script must be placed in

/home/vostronome/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts

then right-clicking on the file

go to properties> permissions

and put the check “Allow executing file as program”

Now just you select the PDF file you need, and right-click

script> Compress-PDF

now wait patiently (depends on the weight of the file)

I hope you might come in handy!
