MS Access 2007 crashes under Crossover C++ error R6034

This removes the dependency causing the problem. Not sure yet what if any features are lost. But access 2007 runs now.

  1. Open the folder where the Office 2007 is installed (e.g.: ~/.cxoffice/Microsoft Office 2007/drive_c/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office12)
  2. Copy and then paste (create a backup) msaccess.exe.manifest
  3. Edit the file msaccess.exe.manifest with with gedit text editor
  4. find and delete the text block:
  5. </assemblyIdentity></dependentAssembly></dependency><dependency><dependentAssembly><assemblyIdentity type="win32" name="AceDAO" version="" language="*" processorArchitecture="X86">
  6. save the file

Sound Issue after Removing Pulseaudio Equalizer

A few days ago I started having issues with the equalizer that is, no sound. I removed the equalizer as well as ladspa-sdk. I promptly forgot about the whole thing until I rebooted and my machine began running super slow. Checking in syslog I found stuff like this:

pulseaudio[3662]: module-ladspa-sink.c: Failed to load LADSPA plugin: file not found
pulseaudio[3662]: module.c: Failed to load module “module-ladspa-sink” (argument: “sink_name=ladspa_output.mbeq_1197.mbeq master=alsa_output.pci-0000_05_00.0.analog-stereo plugin=mbeq_1197 label=mbeq control=-0.2,-0.2,-0.2,-0.2,3.5,3.5,3.5,3.5,3.5,3.5,3.5,2.5,2.5,0.0,0.0”): initialization failed.
pulseaudio[3662]: main.c: Module load failed.
Failed to initialize daemon.
pulseaudio[3660]: main.c: Daemon startup failed

Clearly the equalizer had left something behind when I removed it. Turned out the problem was in ~/.pulse/ The file had been modified in the install and not removed with it. The offending lines were at the end of the file. They looked like:

### Generated from: pulseaudio-equalizer
load-module module-ladspa-sink sink_name=ladspa_output.mbeq_1197.mbeq master=alsa_output.pci-0000_05_00.0.analog-stereo plugin=mbeq_1197 label=mbeq #control=-0.2,-0.2,-0.2,-0.2,3.5,3.5,3.5,3.5,3.5,3.5,3.5,2.5,2.5,0.0,0.0

set-sink-mute alsa_output.pci-0000_05_00.0.analog-stereo 0

### END: Equalized audio configuration

I commented out the lines shown in bold by adding a # at the beginning of each line and saved the file. Problem solved

Add Run Command Capability back to Gnome Classic 11.04 with Awn

When you remove the gnome panel from Gnome Classic 11.04 you lose the Run Command capability. The gmrun program makes it possible to add back the feature. All that’s required is to associate it with the <Alt>F2 keyboard shortcut. I’ve added the instructions to my HowTo. Here:
