I upgraded my server PC’s Operating System from Ubuntu 12.04 LTS to 14.04 LTS on 18 Apr. 2014

When I upgraded it, “do-release-upgrade” didn’t work. So I put “-d” option.

$ sudo do-release-upgrade -d

I got troubles with the web server and with the mail server. The former is by the change of Apache’s specification(Upgrading to 2.4 from 2.2) and the latter was just my configuration files’ permission.

I installed Linux Mint 16 Petra MATE 64bit Edition on 08, Dec. 2013

The analog sound part got disabled after the first installation. So with a panic for that, I installed it again. (Now the state is stable.)
One big issue, common with Ubuntu 13.10 is the big change of ibus. (See Ikuya Awashiro’s Ubuntu Weekly Recipe 第296回 Ubuntu 13.10と日本語入力) At first, like switching off ibus, I did ibus to alphanumeric mode with the key of switching input software. (the default key is [Super] + ) but looks that it’s set for us to use [全角/半角](Zenkaku_Hankaku) key. But as he points, ibus doesn’t show the status whether alphanumeric or Kanji. In addition, the abolishment of ibus’s language panel makes it harder to input Japanese from the X server of Windows PC on another room.

I tried making my Favorite RSS web page with JQuery and its FeedEK plugin.

I tried making Favorite RSS page(Japanese) with JQuery and its plugin FeedEK. I have such a page on Iza!, the official net community Sankei Shimbun News Paper. But it’s going to end this service, the blog service, and the bookmark service in 2014. So I did.
It would be very good to control centrally both its HTML and its Java Script. But I wasn’t attentive to that point.

I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Server Edition to this server PC on 12 May 2013.

Actually, I was trying to install Debian 7.0 wheezy. But I had a trouble with /boot partition even though it’s not a problem on upgrading. And the partitioner corupted the old partition table with making a GPT partition. Mistaking it for the trouble by a Debian installer, I tried to install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Server Edition many times. After that, I succeeded to install it when I make the 711MB base partition as / volume and LVM Physical Volume with /usr, /tmp, /var, /home, and swap.

I watched “Detective Conan: Private Eye in the Distant Sea” today, 20 Apr, 2013.

A poster of Detective Conan: Private Eye in the Distant Sea
I watched Detective Conan: Private Eye in the Distant Sea, referred on the fake news article of Kitsune Shimbun(きつね新聞), my Japanese blog for fake news. Mossad doesn’t appear like my fake news article.
As the spy case about Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force‘s Aegis ship, although there appear JMSDF Criminal Investigation Command(海上自衛隊警務隊) and an officer for protecting the secrets, Koan(公安), the security police arm of Japanese police forces didn’t appear except one scene that Police Inspector Ohtaki(大滝警部) or so of Osaka Prefectural Police(大阪府警察) refers their public safety division(公安課) that they handed the spies over to. The secrets of Aegis ships are a big matter. Kogorou Mouri(毛利小五郎) persuade them to cooperate by saying that. But JMSDF should’ve asked Koan foremost.
Athough it would be very good for China, for North Korea, and for Russia to come to mind foremost, the movie doesn’t point those countries for it’s children’s anime movie. But it’s probably very good to show the deep story showing the war that we really face at present.

* Koan(公安) referred as the security police arm isn’t Public Safety Commissions(公安委員会). The latter is the police committees of the state and of the 47 prefectures. So it’s wrong to refer “Public Safety Commission” as the Japanese secret police.

The related Japanese blog entries that I visited(Added on 25 Apr, 2013. Fixed on 2 May):

I tried settling a new Japanese blog: Kitsune Shimbun for deceiving with false article on 1 Apr., 2013.

I tried making a new Japanese blog: Kitsune Shimbun(きつね新聞). Its theme is to post the jokes thoroughly deceiving people.
From the start, I don’t keep its parent blogs both in English and in Japanese well. So I don’t know how long and how well I will keep this blog.
Kitsune is a Japanese word for “fox”, an animal. In Japanese folktales, foxes enchant people by turning their features into mankinds and various things.
The 1st article on the blog is a copy of my April Fool Joke in 2000. (I save that text on another web page. And you can read also its English version.) When I saw that Natalie Portman says that she wonders if her face is ugly in an article of a movie magazine, I associated her comment with Maya Kitajima(北島マヤ), the heroine of Mask of Glass(ガラスの仮面). So the idea of that article flashed through my mind.
And the 2nd article is the 1st original arctivle for the blog with lying about Detective Conan: Private Eye in the Distant Sea. I haven’t made its English article.

I installed Linux Mint 14 Nadia on 21 Nov. 2012. & I cannot use Gwibber of Ubuntu’s package on it…

I cleanly installed Linux Mint 14 Nadia on 21 Nov. 2012. It’s based on Ubuntu 12.10. And I’ve also become a member of Linux Mint Japan from Linux Mint 13 Maya for a half year. You can install the Japanization packages by the way on ダウンロード | Linux Mint Japan. I did after my installtion of the distribution. The packages that Linux Mint Japan distribute are made by sachs, the administrator of < href="http://simosnet.com/livecdroom/">ライブCDの部屋. It had had a problem that it override the configuration of ibus, a Linux software like MS-IME before. It was very inconvenient since I use some non-Japanese input methods on ibus. But it’s already fixed on the time of my installation although the fix is not complete.
But I find another problem. Continue reading I installed Linux Mint 14 Nadia on 21 Nov. 2012. & I cannot use Gwibber of Ubuntu’s package on it…

I translated a famous copy-and-paste literature about Kindaichi Case Files.

Although I cannot watch the paid channels, I found that ファミリー劇場 shows Kindaichi Case Files. (I wish that I could watch those shows on free channels. But the most of good shows are on the paid channels…) It reminds me of the text on http://2chnull.info/r/rcomic/1301140232/505 . So I translated it for showing a friend on the net.

This is the translation: Continue reading I translated a famous copy-and-paste literature about Kindaichi Case Files.

I cleanly installed Linux Mint 13 Maya Mate 64bit on 7 June, 2012, yesterday.

I hate Unity, the default desktop of Ubuntu. So when I installed it, select the Gnome Classic desktop after installing Gnome Shell. Many people dislike Unity. So yesterday, I cleanly installed Linux Mint, a derived distribution of Ubuntu with Mate desktop forking at Gnome 2.
I feel Mate much better than Unity or Gnome Shell. It’s as easy as Gnome Classic on Gnome 3. That’s good since Gnome Classic will be obsolate.
Since I use LVM, I installed Linux Mint by the way on Mint + LVM?.
