KDE 3.4beta2 revisited

Filed under
KDE
-s

KDE 3.4, due out mid-March, is going to be really nice, judging by the betas. I ran beta1 when it was released and finished installing beta2 this morning (or actually last night while I slept). I've found both of the betas to be stable enough to run daily and expect this to only improve by final release. There are many new features and a definite speed increase over 3.3. In fact, there are a few new surprises since beta1. Please feel free to venture over to the gallery to take a look at some screenshots. Mostly they are the default look, but some customizations are shown at the beginning and end of the album.

Migrating to Linux: Network and System Settings

Linux gives you a lot of control over network and system settings. On your desktop, Linux lets you tweak just about anything on the system. Most of these settings are exposed in plain text files under the /etc directory. Here I describe some of the most common settings you’ll use on your desktop Linux system. A lot of settings can be found in the Settings program, and the available options will vary by Linux distribution. Usually, you can change the background, tweak sound volume, connect to printers, set up displays, and more. While I won't talk about all of the settings here, you can certainly explore what's in there. Read more
