While I stand by my glowing review of Xubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft), I have yet to find any release of any Linux distribution which was free of bugs or quirky behavior. The latest releases of the Ubuntu family of distributions are no different.
The Ubuntu developers are in the process of deciding whether to enable binary-only drivers by default in their installation process, under certain limited circumstances. This decision process has prompted the latest wave in a conversation that's nearly as old as Linux itself.
Installing Ubuntu was a snap. Since I had chosen to completely get rid of Windows altogether, instead of dual booting, I backed up all my sensitive data, music, Word documents, photos, etc., to my external NTFS hard drive.
Out of curiosity, I downloaded and installed Looking Glass 3D 1.0. This stuff is pretty sweet. It reminds me a lot of the early days of Compiz, in the sense that there’s an enormous sense of potential, waiting to be tapped.
Connecting to a server across the internet is much more secure using SSH. There is a way that you can mount a folder on a remove server using the SSHFS service.sshfs is a filesystem client based on the SSH File Transfer Protocol.
This program parses the APT lists for source packages and the dpkg status file and then lists every package with a higher version number than the one installed.
The genesis of this article began when a colleague, who knew of my interest in, use and advocacy of GNU/Linux handed me a printout of a news story of Dave Mitchell, in Sheffield, England, who purchased a Dell laptop with the express purpose of installing GNU/Linux on it. Now, this got me thinking.
While most tasks can be conveniently accomplished using the graphical user interfaces of the Linux desktop, experienced users often find it more efficient to go back to the "command line". Unfortunately, the default terminal windows are usually set to a boring black on white or white on black. But this can be easily changed to look much cooler.
With new versions of two of the most popular Web browsers coming out at nearly the same time, we examined both Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 2.0, keeping a keen eye out for functionality and aesthetic improvements over prior versions.
Taking a trip into space hasn’t been Mark Shuttleworth’s biggest challenge. Instead the one-time space tourist counts building an open-source company and working to hook users on the Linux as his most testing venture. Mr. Shuttleworth spoke with Red Herring about recent developments in the world of open source and his plans for Ubuntu.
Open source came out on strong in 2006. Open-source advocates are promising more to come in 2008. Here are some of the predictions open-source experts are making for the coming year.
I've seen spreadsheets that are basically interactive tutorials, and many more loaded with what Edward Tufte refers to as "chartjunk" -- embellishments that do nothing to make the presentation of information more effective. Yet, generally, spreadsheets are treated pragmatically. Certainly, few people worry about their layout than the layout of text documents. Still, even if you share this attitude, learning the basic formatting options for cells in OpenOffice.org Calc can be worth your time.
I finally got some time to write about Sun’s Project Looking Glass. You might have read my earlier article about installing Project Looking Glass on Ubuntu. Once installed, it creates an option in the login window as a session.
The French space agency is to publish its archive of UFO sightings and other phenomena online, but will keep the names of those who reported them off the site to protect them from pestering by space fanatics.
I want to write about my first 12 hours on Ubuntu Linux. I’m not what you might consider a “power user.” I don’t run my own server, I’m not at all good with running command lines or terminals. I grew up Windows, I know Windows and switching to Linux has pushed my brain farther than I thought it would ever have to go. It has been a great experience. Here are some things that I’ve noted are significantly different and, in my humble opinion better, than Windows.
Today, David has brought his Wiimote at Mandriva office so that we make some experiments with the Wiimote linux drivers. I've started with WMD, which is a python program that can generate input events based on the info sent by the Wiimote (on Bluetooth).
Ever since Linux came out of the shadow and made the front cover in most computing magazines as the next big thing all of it’s fans wait for the day that it’s market share will grow and “eat” Microsoft windows.
After several days of effort, Linus Torvalds tracked down and posted a patch for a low level data corruption bug. In a series of emails, Linus thoroughly explained the thought process involved in isolating the exact problem. Linus posted the fix in a followup email.
The latest reports say that a dude who goes under the name, "MysVidel" has managed to get the Linux operating system up and alive on Microsoft's Zune.
Open Source software (OSS) may be gaining popularity in the Philippines, but many small business owners are still unaware of how this technology can impact and improve their businesses.
