For the purpose of writing any text with Islamic symbols in Arabic, you can do it in LibreOffice Writer using its Unicode support. If you were familiar with Unicode support in Microsoft Word, then this LibreOffice feature is equal. Here you will find examples in writing Islamic symbols such as shall allahu alaihy wa sallam (shalawat), allah (the name of Allah), rasool (the prophet) bismillah ar rahman ar raheem, and some more.

In this article I listed my favorite GNOME Shell Extensions (GSE) that I, myself, had ever used. GSE in GNOME is similar with Addons in Firefox, they add and extend desktop functionality with many features. I listed here GSE for screen recording, proxy, network indicator, and some more.

After installing indicator-multiload some days ago, I realized that this small program is very useful for the desktop users in many ways. It provides complete system indicators, not only for networking (real-time up/down speed), but also cpu, mem, and disk transfer real-time statuses. It can be configured to show on the panel only one of them, or combination of some, or even them all. For Unity desktop environment users, indicator-multiload features are arguably needed. So here I show you the examples in configuring indicator-multiload to show the things you need from your system statuses.

Did you ever wonder if there is a text editor that can do anything almost like a complete operating system? That text editor is GNU Emacs. Emacs is truly lightweight (console is its default interface), long-living (since 1976; 40 years ago), extensible, advanced, very general purpose, and Emacs makes the user types very fast as an Emacs user ever said "you type on Emacs as fast as you think". As a text editor, Emacs can do any basic text editing, edit source code for any programming language, do multitasking such as writing while compiling, and more. Emacs is highly configurable through its Lisp system and extensible by a huge number of extensions available. Emacs has both console and GUI interfaces, while the user can choose what interface to use at anytime. Emacs official website is http://gnu.org/software/emacs. This article introduces GNU Emacs for complete beginners using Ubuntu operating system. This article flows starting from installing, navigating, windowing, basic multitasking, and basic keystrokes of Emacs.
