I’ve never been the type to use an *abomination mouse (as I call them) and I prefer not to use an abomination keyboard, but there are a lot of you out there that seem to enjoy them so I thought I would share the steps on getting them to work.
CheckGmail is a system tray application that checks a Gmail account for new mail. CheckGmail is an alternative Gmail Notifier for Linux and other *nix systems. It is fast, secure and uses minimal bandwidth via the use of Atom feeds.
For anyone who has studied computing or ICT in a UK school, this will probably come as little surprise. My classmates and I (like many others) were taught by a teacher with little specialist knowledge of the subject (she taught French the majority of the time), following a curriculum that predominantly consisted of instruction in the correct use of the Microsoft Office suite.
Just following the recent World Usability Day and a few months past the third birthday of OpenUsability I took some time to talk to Jan Mühlig, one of the OpenUsability founders and to get an inside look at some of the history of the project, how it works from the inside and some of the current direction.
For the last 15 years, Linux has grown from a small hobby of a university student to a powerful system which is rapidly gaining popularity every year. But unfortunately in majority of cases Linux based Desktop solutions are less preferable then the Windows or Mac based. Why ???
OpenOffice.org has announced the winners of its template and clipart contest. The judges distributed a total of five cash prizes totalling $1,700 for templates, and three cash prizes totalling $1,300 for clipart, as well as two Honorable Mentions for templates. In addition, the project will send T-shirts and other OpenOffice.org merchandise to many of the other entrants.
The dedicated hardware for the OVSD servers came in last week. Yay! Time to have some fun wrangling the new hardware. With Ben’s welcome assistance, we got the boxes racked up and physically connected in record time. So the guys stuck a Gentoo LiveCD into the first box for me, I rolled up my sleeves and waded in.
Despite the fact that I work with the world’s best operating system (Mac OS X), I can’t help but want to try other operating systems when I have the chance. I’ve played with many a Linux distro in the past, but I decided to give Ubuntu a try on my 20″ Intel iMac despite the fact that I knew I wouldn’t be able to run it natively.
Not that long ago, the mere mention of installing Linux struck fear into the hearts of mortal men. Nowadays, it is a different story entirely, and Ubuntu is one of the easiest distros to install. In this chapter, Andrew and Paul Hudson cover how to get started with the install disc, including booting into Ubuntu Live to test your system. Then they cover the actual installation of Ubuntu, looking at the various options available.
Michael Berger, a Linux/Unix System Engineer based in Knoxville, is organizing a Ubuntu Local Community Team (LoCo) in order to advocate and educate Linux users for the entire state of Tennessee about Ubuntu Linux and the Ubuntu "way." The focus will be on all derivatives of Ubuntu, including Edubuntu.
As of today, the KANOTIX distribution is...not dead, exactly, but most definitely without a firm direction.
I've read a number of reviews comparing Firefox 2 and IE7's RSS capabilities. Every time Firefox comes up short. There's a reason for this though, and it relates to the Firefox philosophy of having enough features, not too many or too few.
Linux is here to stay. As the computing industry’s fastest growing operating system, some analysts predict that Linux will surpass Microsoft Windows in new server shipments in just a few years.
The Free Software Foundation's (FSF) General Public Licence (GPL) is undergoing its biggest overhaul in 15 years and local members of the free software community are participating in the development process.
Developers at the University of Toronto are about to release what they see as the answer to inappropriate Internet censorship. psiphon, open source software set to hit the streets under the GNU General Public License, allows Internet users in restricted countries to gain unfettered Internet access
The Software Freedom Law Center has filed a request with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) that is seeking to invalidate an "Internet-Based Education Support System" patent that is owned by e-learning provider Blackboard.
As enterprises of all stripes and sizes ponder whether or when to upgrade to Windows Vista, they could be confronted with at least three choices. 1) Stay with what they have, 2) Migrate to Vista, or 3) Migrate to Linux. Some of the thinking goes like this:
We know there’s some of you still confused about all the CMS babble spreading around the web, so we thought it’d be a good idea to put together the top 10 pros and cons web designers should take into consideration when pondering on whether or not using a CMS app.
Perhaps you rarely face it, but once you do, you surely know what's wrong: lack of free memory, or Out of Memory (OOM). The results are typical: you can no longer allocate more memory and the kernel kills a task (usually the current running one). Heavy swapping usually accompanies this situation, so both screen and disk activity reflect this.
For all the efficiency and continued evolution of Debian's APT tools, some gaps in package management functionality remain. One of the largest ones is that, when a package is removed, any other packages that depend on it are not removed. The result is a growing number of orphans on the system. You can turn to a group of housekeeping tools that make maintaining your Debian system easier and more efficient.
