Lightweight windowing system supports embedded Linux

Filed under
Software

A free software project based in Instanbul has released a portable, embedded client-server windowing system. The Xynth Windowing System, released under the GPL, offers a lightweight GUI-capable windowing system usable in Linux-based embedded systems and devices, such as handhelds and set-top boxes.

The Xynth project was launched at the end of 2002, and its Xynth Windowing System (XWS) has since become "stable and reliable," according to the project website. XWS comprises a client-server windowing system, widget library, and a human interface component offering basic window management functions.

According to Xynth project's website, XWS is unique among client-server windowing systems in allowing both clients and servers direct access to video memory.

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
