mplayer-gui error : Error in skin config file

After installing mplayer-gui package, I can't start it.

$ gmplayer MPlayer 1.1-4.8 (C) 2000-2012 MPlayer Team mplayer: could not connect to socket mplayer: No such file or directory Failed to open LIRC support. You will not be able to use your remote control. Error in skin config file on line 6: PNG read error in /usr/share/mplayer/skins/default/main Config file processing error with skin 'default'
After googling a bit, I found out that it was due to the png files in dir /usr/share/mplayer/skins/default. This is the default skin directory. To fix this error, I have to install ImageMagick package because I want to use the convert program to convert all of the png files to format png24. Thus, cd /usr/share/mplayer/skins/default; for FILE in *.png ; do sudo convert $FILE -define png:format=png24 $FILE ; done
Rerun gmplayer and all should be fine.
Have fun!

Converting phpBB2 to phpBB3

phpBB is my favorite bulletin board system. After 4 years running on phpBB2, I tried to convert my board to phpBB3 RC7 (this is the latest at the time of writing). My phpBB2 version was 2.0.21. I read many in phpBB community forums, many people had some kinds of problem in conversion with the built-in convertor. I tried it myself and failed for 3 times. The problem was connection timed-out during conversion. Googling a bit, I found a solution. Thanks for the problem solver. You are a hero!. :-) Check it out here. This is how I did it:

Open phpbb3/install/install_convert.php

Find these lines:

/**
*
* @package install
* @version $Id: install_convert.php,v 1.53 2007/10/11 08:12:25 acydburn Exp $

/**

After those lines, add:
@set_time_limit(0);
@ini_set('memory_limit', '256M');
@ini_set('upload_max_filesize', '128M');
@ini_set('post_max_size', '…

Transparent proxy with squid 2.6

I have upgraded my squid from 2.5 STABLE13 to 2.6 STABLE18. Transparent proxy is setup differently in this version. You need this directives in squid.conf (usually in /etc or /usr/local/etc or /usr/local/squid/etc, check with your distro).

acl our_networks src 192.168.2.0/24 127.0.0.1
http_access allow our_networks
http_port 192.168.2.1:3128 transparent
always_direct allow all

where 192.168.2.1 is your proxy server IP address.


If you have flushed your iptables, create new rule:

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp –dport 80 -j REDIRECT –to-port 3128

where 3128 is the port where squid is running.
