Canon Printer Driver for Ubuntu

April 26th, 2012 No comments

Are you the one person who has a Canon Printer & Your Canon Printer can not be used because there is no driver or driver does not work in Ubuntu? Do not panic & do not be confused because there are PPA (Personal Package Archive) that provides drivers for various types of Canon Printer. You just add the PPA repository to your Ubuntu system, type the following command into the Terminal.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon
sudo apt-get update

Then go to the Ubuntu Software Center and then see the left column, there are PPA Canon Printer Driver. Click there and then select & install the Canon Printer driver that you need. Here I demonstrated to install the driver for Canon MP258, so I choose & install the driver cnijfilter-mp250series.

April 2nd, 2012 No comments

Sebelum kita membaca ramalan Tun Daim Zainuddin yang dibuat melalui wawancara khas dengan akhbar China Press, adalah amat penting untuk kita mengingati bahawa Daim adalah satu-satunya pemimpin yang secara terbuka meramalkan Barisan Nasional (BN) akan kehilangan beberapa negeri dan mencatatkan keputusan terburuk dalam pilihan raya umum (PRU) ke-12 lalu.

Justeru, bersandarkan pengalaman sebelum ini, maka ramalan yang dibuat Daim pastinya memiliki nilai politik yang tinggi dan perlu diberikan perhatian.

Antara ramalan beliau untuk PRU ke-13 seperti yang disiarkan di muka satu akhbar China Press ialah :

Gasoline-electric Hybrid Structure

April 2nd, 2012 No comments

Gasoline-electric hybrid cars contain the following parts:

  • Gasoline engine – The hybrid car has a gasoline engine much like the one you will find on most cars. However, the engine on a hybrid is smaller and uses advanced technologies to reduce emissions and increase efficiency.
  • Fuel tank – The fuel tankin a hybrid is the energy storage device for the gasoline engine. Gasoline has a much higher energy density than batteries do. For example, it takes about 1,000 pounds of batteries to store as much energy as 1 gallon (7 pounds) of gasoline.
  • Electric motor – The electric motoron a hybrid car is very sophisticated. Advanced electronics allow it to act as a motor as well as a generator. For example, when it needs to, it can draw energy from the batteries to accelerate the car. But acting as a generator, it can slow the car down and return energy to the batteries.
  • Generator – The generatoris similar to an electric motor, but it acts only to produce electrical power. It is used mostly on series hybrids (see below).
  • Batteries – The batteriesin a hybrid car are the energy storage device for the electric motor. Unlike the gasoline in the fuel tank, which can only power the gasoline engine, the electric motor on a hybrid car can put energy into the batteries as well as draw energy from them.
  • Transmission – The transmission on a hybrid car performs the same basic function as the transmission on a conventional car. Some hybrids, like the Honda Insight, have conventional transmissions. Others, like the Toyota Prius, have radically different ones, which we’ll talk about later.
