Show Location manufacturer description

Mac OS X is not supported. It can only use online query for ChunZhen. Linux is well supported, Show Location 0.4.8 is tested and working on Ubuntu and Fedora.

For English users, you need GeoLiteCity IP database, which can be downloaded from:
After download, extract "GeoLiteCity.dat.gz" by using winrar or gunzip, then in Show Location Other Options, check GeoLiteCity and set the database path to the file "GeoLiteCity.dat". GeoliteCity is updated officially in the beginning of every month.

For Chinese users, you are encouraged to use local ChunZhen IP database, which can be downloaded from: (Simplified Chinese)
or (Traditional Chinese)
After download, extract "qqwry.rar" by using winrar, then in Show Location Options, check Chunzhen and select GB2312 or Big5, and set the database path to the file "QQWry.Dat". ChunZhen IP database is updated officially every 5 days.
(In linux, your system must support zh_CN.GB2312 or zh_TW.BIG5, use "locale -a" to check that. If not supported, type"sudo gedit /var/lib/locales/supported.d/zh" in the shell and add "zh_CN.GB2312 GB2312" or "zh_TW.Big5 Big5" to the file then save and exit, and run "sudo locale-gen", now your system supports GB2312 or Big5)

If it shows XPCOM error in Ubuntu linux, please download the official edition of FF3 for linux from Mozilla website and create a new FF profile and try again

1. Middle click to open options

3. Double click flag to open IP Query Tool
4. Press "ESC" to close Google Maps Tool or IP Query Tool

8. If you want to show tooltip in multiple lines, please add the following to "profile/chrome/userChrome.css":

1. There may be a little bug when showing flag in tooltip in FF3, especially when you set the tooltip in multiple lines, I am trying to fix it for the next version.
