Hi Everyone. Welcome to my page. Here i would like to share some latest news and findings regarding open source. Although i'm still in the learning process on open source, i do hope all my post is useful to those who might face the same problem as i did. Also time to time i'll post some updates & latest stuff on some of the cool gadgets i get to know. Hope you find this page useful. Thank you, enjoy reading and have a nice day.

Future laptops...

With the cutting-edge technology mankind is developing every second ever wonder how things in the future gonna look like? Lets take laptop for instant. Nowadays you can own a "lappy" for as low as RM1900.00. How about in future?
Lets not talk about the price but we'll see about the designs. Shall we start ??


Instead with the existing LCD, manufacturer will use Organic Light-emitting Diode (OLED) monitor to replace the existing Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) Monitor. The most significant benefit of of OLED displays over traditional liquid crystal displays (LCDs) is that OLEDs do not require a backlight to function.Thus they draw far less power and, when powered from a battery, can operate longer on the same charge. Because there is no need for a backlight, an OLED display can be much thinner than an LCD panel.

Hard Disk

The future Laptop will comprise of Solid-state Drives (SSD), which will give different architecture form the previous Hard Disk. The greatest benefit is the absence of moving parts.They also make a laptop about 25 percent lighter than one with a disk on board.


Instead of using the conventional keyboard, The new keyboard is made from the OLED. The technology is the same as OLED monitor except for the touch screen capability. Another advance feature is that you can change this keyboard to become second monitor. Now you have dual monitor Laptop… ;-)


Battery life is becoming an increasingly important issue for mobile computing users. With screens getting larger and brighter and laptop CPUs getting more powerful, the strains on batteries have continued to increase, and the technology just isn’t keeping pace. The use nanotechnology will increase the surface area of the plates much further. They attach millions of nanotubes, which are tiny synthesized “straws” comprised of a lattice of carbon atoms, to the capacitor plates. Another new method is the use of detachable solar power will increase the laptop lifetime while the power also able to recharge the laptop battery.

So how? Enough futuristic guys? Wonder how it feels like to play FIFA World Cup in this machine... Hmmmm....

Error : An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for Nautilus. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly.

Good Day All,

After a long time i'm posting again in my blog... this time its about error while launching Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala after replacing a motherboard (mbo)..

This is the error message i get when i replace the mbo and use back the old hard disc with existing OS and data "An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for Nautilus. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly."

Tried all i can n did some major search in Google, did find some info but didnt really solved my problem. So i asked help from a friend. After a lot of trial and error we manage to find the solution. So if anyone out there is facing the same problem, you might try this ;

# locate saved_state
(will giv out 2 findings, in /home/username directory and in /root directory)
# cd /home/username/.gconfd
# ls
(will show a file by the name "saved_state")
# rm -rf saved_state
(this will delete the file)
# reboot
(when the machine reboot, a fresh copy of the saved_state file will be generated and this should solved the problem)

Hope this solved your problem. Do feedback the outcome if you have tried this.

P.S : Thanks to my buddy who help me on this.
