E-mail Print PDF

To overlay Adobe AIR 3.7 on top of a copy of Flex 4.6 SDK:

1.  Download version 3.7 of the Adobe AIR SDK for Flex Users (non compiler version underneath the "Download Now" buttons).

2.  Create a copy of the 4.6.0 sdk folder in "/Applications/Adobe Flash Builder 4.6/sdks/"

3.  Copy the downloaded SDK archive file, AdobeAIRSDK.tbz2, to the newly created folder, for example "/Applications/Adobe Flash Builder 4.6/sdks/4.6.0-AIR3.7"

4.  Unpack the archive within the new 4.6.0-AIR3.7 folder by running $ tar xvf AdobeAIRSDK.tbz2

5.  Launch Flex Builder, under Project > Properties > Flex Compiler click Configure Flex SDK and add a link to the new folder to add the new SDK.

6.  You should now be able to select which SDK in the dropdown -- Flex 4.6.0 (build 23201) AIR 3.7

7. Update the AIR Application Descriptor file with the new namespace xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/air/application/3.7"

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install xmlcopyeditor

Scroll away mobile web-app address bar

E-mail Print PDF

Ever wanted to "hide" the address bar in a web-native mobile app?

Once the page has completely loaded, call setTimeout () which will delay N milliseconds and execute scrollTo () to scroll the content to the top.


<body onload="setTimeout(function() { window.scrollTo(0, 1) }, 100);">


Cannot authenticate to network shares after Ubuntu 12.04 upgrade

E-mail Print PDF

After upgrading to Ubuntu 12.04, I was no longer able to authenticate to out office NAS file folders.  After some Googling I came across the following solution which fixed the problem --  add the following client settings under the [global] section of  /etc/samba/smb.conf :

client lanman auth = yes
client ntlmv2 auth = no

Here is the link to the solution for reference: http://askubuntu.com/questions/127223/12-04-network-authentication-not-working
