Some of you may have experienced the problem of Conky being over the windows when the machine starts. So you have to manually restart Conky using killall conky; conky . But this can be easily avoided by editing the .conkyrc file. All you have to do is to set the “own_window_type” option to “normal”. Then Conky will appear under the windows when the OS restarts.
How to check whether mod_rewrite is installed?
Create a text file named check.php in the www folder and insert the following code to it.
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
Then go to the web page in your browser using the url “localhost/check.php”. Then you’ll see information about the php version of the system. Under the “Configuration” title there’s another title called “apache2handler”. In that table there’ll be a entry named “Loaded Modules”. Check to see if it contains the name “mod_rewrite “.If you can see that name then mod_rewrite is installed to apache.
If mod_rewrite is not installed?
mod_rewrite can be installed using the “sudo a2enmod rewrite” command in the terminal.

I installed Amarok in Ubuntu Yesterday. But the problem was it couldn’t play mp3/mpg/mp4/m4a files. After a bit of searching I was able to figure out a solution. What you have to do is to install libxine1-ffmpeg package. It just a simple
sudo apt-get install libxine1-ffmpeg
Then everything worked fine for me. Hope this helps…!
