Beginning GIMP: From Novice to Professional

Filed under
Misc

Beginning GIMP: From Novice to Professional, by Akkana Peck, a longtime member of the GIMP community, went out this April at Apress (it was released on my B-day, as I just noticed).

Based on one of the latest GIMP 2.3.x development releases, and (obviously) printed in color by the publisher, this book has all the ingredients for a big success: a skilled and inspired author, appealing examples, an extremely comprehensive content (see the Table of Contents as PDF or in HTML), everything you need to start using and enjoying the power of GIMP in any OS it supports — the 522-pages book has separate appendices on how to install GIMP on Windows, Mac, and Linux/*BSD/Unix, with individual notes for various distributions, or even on how to build it from source.

Full Story.

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
