Install MonoDevelop Addins on Ubuntu

I installed MonoDevelop from Add/Remove... which did not install all addins I wanted.
Basically I was searching how to install NUnit addin for MonoDevelop. There's a FAQ entry on how to enable it, but it is not very useful, though I did the last bit, creating symbolic link.

Anyway, here's how to install it on Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install monodevelop-nunit

If you just type

sudo apt-get install monodevelop-

and press Tab key twice it will list you all available addins. One very useful is monodevelop-versioncontrol,

Useful links:
Using NUnit with MonoDevelop
Using Subversion with MonoDevelop

MySQL custom data folder in Linux

This info relates to Arch Linux and configuration of MySQL to use custom data folder. I followed instructions to install MySQL on ArchWiki. It worked like a charm, everything was working perfectly, until I tried to change data folder. Now, probably important thing to say is that I setup rc.conf to automatically start mysqld daemon. Google did not help this time :( since whatever I tried did not work. Even MySQL official documentation was of no help. Setting datadir in my.cnf did not help. But finally I found solution, and it was super easy:

Edit file: /etc/conf.d/mysqld
And enter your data folder there (/data/mysql in my case):
MYSQLD_ROOT="/data/mysql"

After that it worked. I don't know if this is Arch Linux specific, but I hope this will help someone not to loose as much time I did figuring out.

JumpStart - 0.5a5.1 released

New version of JumpStart is ready on AMO. Please report encountered issues here, and post your questions at extension's group page.

Here's a short summary of changes:

New locales (contribution by Babelzilla.org community): hu-HU, pl-PL, he-IL, de-DE, fr, pt-BR
which with existing locales: en-US, sr-RS, ko-KR brings the number of supported locales to 9.

Fixed ordering of locales - it now properly displays en-US if a locale is missing (Firefox 3.5 specific)
Fixed refreshing tabs in background tabs (Firefox 3.5 specific, in Firefox 3.0 still refreshes only thumb from the active tab)
Properties of thumbnails are made permanent now - not being flushed with history. This can be turned off through about:config
Preferences and Bookmarks pages have improved appearance - contributions by Leszek(teo)┼╗yczkowski


Guys from Babelzilla are awesome, provided 7 translations in a week (despite my screw-up in which all translations got lost and Chinese yet to be recovered). Thanks to erglo, Goofy, SiiiE, Cashman, teo, Ghelman, tawcw, markh, for contribution and help!
