so the other day i had to import an address book from windows live mail into gmail. the issue was that every time i did an export from windows live mail, it would mess up the csv, so when gmail read it it imported all the email addresses and data into the notes field. however, gmail could import a .vcf just fine. so i exported all the contacts to .vcf format and dumped them into one folder. then ran
copy /B *.vcf all_in_one.vcf. this copied all the .vcf’s into one file. i was then able to import the file into gmail no problem.
wow. i never thought i would have to google how to right click using ubuntu on the powerbook.
apples powerbook touchpad has no middle or right mouse button – where this isnt a big problem using os x, in ubuntu it can generally be an issue.
after much googling i finally found that by default the mouse middle-click was f11 and the mouse right-click was f12. now these are mapped and can be changed by editing the
/etc/sysctl.conf and mapping
dev/mac_hid/mouse_button3_keycode to their corresponding key scan codes.
you can get the key scan codes by running
sudo showkey then pressing the key or keys for which the scan codes are to be printed. to exit the key mapping software, press
