If you'd like to look at my Fluxbox Files

Filed under
Linux

I know I just said in my last blog that KDE3 is the best desktop of all time, but you know how sometimes "home" means /home/ (everybody's home) and sometimes "home" means ~ (my home)? This is MY best desktop of all time. If you don't know anything about customizing fluxbox, it's worth looking at

KIARA 2.4 My Homemade KDE3 Distro

Filed under
Linux

KIARA GNU/Linux is a Live CD based on Slax with applications ported from Slackware 12.2, including virtually all official components of KDE 3.5.10, and is upgraded to contain the latest Web applications from Mozilla and Opera. KIARA combines a full-featured classic KDE3 desktop with an up-to-minute web experience. The live format lets you run legacy software with rock solid security, and keeps your hard drive free for when you need to run something a little less old-school.

KIARA releases immediately follow each new release of Mozilla Firefox

Besides KDE3, KIARA also contains some popular light Desktop GUI's, including FVWM, Fluxbox, and XFCE, and even some text-based applications chosen with running from the console in mind (emacs, irssi, lynx, and GNU Screen).

Kubuntu 11.10: It seems that there is a problem.

I guess this is a bug report. I'll be filing this soon, probably tomorrow, but I wonder if anybody else has seen this.

The screens hots probably aren't going to show up here so go to http://unityisntthatbad.blogspot.com/

Konqueror in KDE4. It's not so terrible, I guess.

Filed under
Linux

I was a Konqueror fanboy before I was KDE fanboy. Lately, Konqueror hasn't even been part of the default Desktop in Kubuntu. There are people who still haven't gotten over the switch to KDE4, and Konqueror is usually the reason. In KDE3, Konqueror was the most comprehensive desktop application ever, a web browser as well as a file manager, but it was even more than that.

My plan to use KDE3 forever.

I call it "Live-rooting'...

What I wish I'd read months ago about KDE3 vs. KDE4

This could have saved me (and probably others) a lot of public freaking out.

We get it! You like Vista. Some fans just carry it a little too far.

Why I hate Ubuntu (even though it's awesome)

When you put up a detour in Debian, put up a signpost.

Why you need the command line. How many reasons can I come up with before breakfast?

I'm hungry, so let's put this bad boy to bed.

The Command Line is Part of the Desktop!

Don't be a "Putzbuntu!"

Why Mr. and Ms. Desktop Distro need to discover the Command Line. Part one of a series that may never end.

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
