Virtualization: Ubuntu server + KDE/Xfce - Part I

Filed under
Ubuntu

The Ubuntu server CD is great for virtualization: it's fast, and it also allows for personalization.

The server CD is really an Ubuntu minimal installation, with the added ability to set up mail servers, as well as a LAMP server. Several other features are offered.

I decided to use Ubuntu 7.04 as the host system, since VMware Server is included in the repositories. VMware Server allows you to create VMware images.

I installed the Ubuntu Server CD (version 7.10, Gutsy Gibbon) on two virtual machine images, one designated for KDE, the other, Xfce.

Before I could install any GUI (the Ubuntu Server has no GUI), I had to install a piece of crucial software.

    I’ve been working hard to enhance KApiDox. I’d like to come back on what it is for, what I did and what I see for its future.
  • Danbooru Client 0.6.0 released
    It offers a convenient, KF5 and Qt5-based GUI coupled with a QML image view to browse, view, and download images hosted in two of the most famous Danbooru boards (konachan.com and yande.re).
  • A KMail Breakthrough.
    This tells the story of how I finally managed a successful transfer of email data from KMail version 1.13.6 to version 4.11.5. It is a non-technical essay exploring the obstacles I encountered, my options, and the methods I used to achieve my aim. It was written partly to give the information, but also with the hope that readers will both enjoy and be amused by the story of the "battle of KMail" that was ultimately won against "incredible odds". Links to the earlier articles discussing problems with KMail 4x are given at the end.
  • [GSoC] Kdev-Embedded, Debugging and programming embedded systems
    The actual embedded system word depends on closed-source IDEs and libraries, with high monetary value and deprecated functionalities. Programmers that would like to use ARM based boards without paying for an IDE will have problems setting up such development ambient and synchronized toolkits. The main idea of this project is to provide a plugin integrated with KDevelop to help the debugging and programming process of embedded systems like AVR, ARM and x86 based boards.
