Great Start Menu Launcher

Image
Hello There , welcome to another techtip
Today we will be discussing the FSL Launcher , a Start menu type launcher that Displays your short cuts , files and other data in a tabbed dock .


My review of it is 4/5 , it's good , but can go better , for example some functions are limited only for the subscribers , but even the free version can be very handy .
I also noticed that it does not handle Program Files Shortcuts right away , in 64 bit you have two of them but the program only launched the ones installed in the same program files with it , in that case  program files (x86) , so you need to edit that shortcut manually , when it does not launch it freezes until you press the OK under the Icons , and the icon is displayed without the Picture .
That bug was on Windows 7 64 Bit
Tell us what you think :)

If u needed to convert an English text to Arabic, as it is typed not transulated, or you simply cannot read franco then this software is for you, four main shortcuts for you to remember, and you are good to go:
You need to highlight the text you want to process first :

Ctrl + F1 From English to Arabic
Ctrl + F2 From Arabic to English
Ctrl + F3 From Franco to Arabic
Ctrl + F4 Syntax Correction (just like in MS Word, but not related to it).

Download from here, only 1.5 MB 

Support site

P.S: Some Antivirus programs consider it as a Trojan, i emailed the programmer a few days ago and he confirmed to me that it is a false detection, so add it to the exceptions list of your anti virus, and you are good to go.

There is a simpler portable tool for Franco-Arabic conversion called Franco-Arabic Translator can be downloaded from here

Good day, and welcome to another tech tip, today we will be improving the amazing gimp a little bit more, by adding third-party plugins originally made for Photoshop using the Pspi plug-in. for information on installing this plugin go to this guide which demonstrates how to do it very easily!!
Of course all the 30 plug-ins we are about to add are free of charge and the are copyright of their respective owners, but i packed, tested, and uploaded them, so if you want to refer to it, please use my link (or give me a better one than use it :). Just extract the plug-in (compressed in .7Z file format for smaller more efficient size and download speed), all compatible and tested on gimp 2.8  [windows XP Sp3] to the directory of your choice, mine was "C:\Program Files\GIMP 2.8\PSplugins\".


-As you may notice i changed the default install directory from 2.0 to 2.8 to make it more oblivious for me-, and i put the the plug-ins inside gimp for organizing purposes only but you can put them a…

Gimp 2.8 Problem solved!!

Image
Hey there you guys? How are you today?I hope you are doing great!


Tested OS: Windows XP SP3  MS Office 2003 Enterprise, Gimp 2.8 RC1
If you installed the amazing Gimp 2.8 and enjoyed working on it as much as i did, you would be interested in reading this, Gimp 2.8 crashes, loads for a split second and then vanishes, even if you view the process in task manager, you will see it for a split second and then it goes out..
What is causing this?
The Reason for this is Office 2003, apparently there is a font issue that is causing this bug, and it's yet to be fixed (at the point of the post), so if you are a die-hard gimp fan you will be forced to make a choice between the two, (That is office and Gimp)
Tip: You can use Open Office, almost as good, absolutely free of charge.
As soon you uninstall the Office 2003 suit and reinstall gimp 2.8, it will work normally.
And That is it..
Please Comment and thank you for reading.
Have a wonderful day.
