Dear Admin of Tuxmachines,

I would just like to request that you could maybe link to the real authors of articles.
"Distro Review - Xubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex"

It appears that the owner of http://linuxblogonline.org/ is just copying and pasting other people's articles without having the common courtesy of providing a link back to the original.

I was quite surprised to see that my article appeared on TuxMachines in the first place, but when I saw that the link was to another site, I thought i'd post.

To be honest, anybody who writes an article will gladly let you copy and paste it, but at least give the author some credit via a link or trackback.

I have seen many sites such as http://linuxblogonline.org/ which get a collection of articles which they claim as their own, and once they have generated enough traffic, start filling the site with google adsense adverts.

Whatsmore he is actually including images which are hosted on my server as well. Once in a while doesn't matter, but article thieves get their site on Digg, the rest of us pay for their image bandwidth.

A simple Google of the article title would have led you to the original site.

Thanks in advance.

No problem at all Susan, I

No problem at all Susan,

I am a regular visitor to TuxMachines, and was rather surprised at the link. I have no problem at all with any of my articles being used at all, but a link back is basic courtesy, something which the owner of linuxblogonline seems to have forgotten. As it happens I have deleted a lot of out-of-date articles now anyway, so only the recent reviews and howto's remain on the front page at LxH.

I have often posted howto guides and articles by other authors both on Dreamlnux Forums and The Linux-Hardcore, but always with proper recognition for the original owner.

Anyway, thanks for the quick reply, and keep up the good work, TuxMachines is a truly great site.

re: copied articles

I'm sure am sorry about that. I try to avoid that happening, but sometimes my memory and/or search fail me. So, I always appreciate it when someone informs me of articles and sites that steal others' work. Nothing irritates more than content thieves. I've had it happen to my work before too.

As it turns out, I had linked to your original article when it first came out and I changed the link in the other as well.

Again, I apologize and I will try to remember that http://linuxblogonline.org/ is a content thief. Feel free to remind me if needed.

Sincerely,
Susan

What happens if pictures get moved by mistake?

Well, accidents can happen Wink

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
