Ten days ago we got the first snapshot of KDE4. If you already played a bit with it, now you can continue discovering more interesting things playing with the unstable package of Okular...
I mean to help those of you that will be taking charge of your computers. The first task I'd like to help with is choosing applications for your computer. As I mentioned in the introduction to this series, let us not forget that it might be easier for you to just accept the choices made by others. If you'd rather not deal with all of the hassles, then maybe you should just stick with Linspire or Xandros. If you do, however, you might miss out on a wealth of software available that could help you get more out of your computer.
I’ve got a large network that’s accessible by hordes of people. On this network I have an Ubuntu box acting as a file server. I want a limited number of folks to be able to put files on it, take files off of it and access it from a number of different operating systems (OSX, Windows and Linux). How to do that?
Novell Inc. late Tuesday said it had begun an internal review of its past stock-option grants and related accounting, and may not be able to file its quarterly results with regulators on time as a result.
The Nokia 770 Internet Tablet is a thin black handheld device with a Linux operating system and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, but, unlike most Nokia handhelds, it's not a cell phone. Instead, it's a fun way to connect to the Internet. The latest version shows promise, but it's still not quite ready for prime time.
The Communist-run government of Kerala has launched a campaign to make the southern Indian state a Microsoft-free zone, less than two weeks after banning the sale and manufacture of Coca-Cola and Pepsi, the Financial Times reported on its Web site Tuesday.
The Linux operating system - a free, open-source alternative to Windows and Mac OS X, has long served to define the gap between people who merely use computers and those who tinker with them. But that dividing line might be fading especially with increasing security problems for Windows.
This may be below your radar, but Raleigh-based Red Hat - known for its Linux software - has quietly launched a social networking portal that may challenge MySpace and other popular destinations.
This past Saturday marks the 15th anniversary of one of the keystones of the modern Internet-the Linux operating system.
Ubuntu Linux founder Mark Shuttleworth has apologised for a faulty patch last week that left thousands of users without a graphical user interface - a particularly acute problem for a distribution that specialises in ease of use.
Like cold fusion or a painless weight-loss plan, a user-friendly version of Linux remains elusive. But developers are getting closer with Ubuntu -- a free, Linux-based operating system that appeared in October 2004 and is winning over waves of converts, including high-profile geeks like Cory Doctorow.
Debian makes heavy use of it's bug-tracking system, (BTS) to coordinate work, and for developers to know that a problem needs fixing. This article is aimed at those who haven't seen the BTS before, or know who have used it a little, but would like to know about how to manipulate bugs.
We all know that the so called "war" between KDE and GNOME has been raging now for a long time. Unfortunately, this competition seems to have fractured the Linux community into two (and more) warring camps, neither able to give an inch between them.
The GNU General Public License (GPL) is one of the most widely used software licenses -- and, undoubtedly, the most misunderstood. Some of this misunderstanding comes from hostile propaganda, but some also comes from a lack of experience. In all cases, the confusion is frequently based on misreadings, rumors, secondhand accounts, and what is convenient to believe.
The author of Hardening Linux explains why distro security can be subjective, what basic steps users can take to protect themselves from browser security flaws and why the Linux desktop is more secure than Windows.
Okay, I don't really know how many chances I've given GNOME, but I've tried to switch to GNOME as my default desktop many times. I always ended up switching back to KDE (to be fair, I use other window managers, too, such as Fluxbox, which is one of my favorites). But I've really been enjoying my GNOME experience despite the fact that there are still things about GNOME that I dislike.
LDAP--Lightweight Directory Access Protocol--is a protocol that stores and retrieves information from a directory, which for both OpenLDAP and Fedora Directory Services is stored in a Berkeley DB. Whatever your primary computing platform is, chances are you're going to have to support some form of LDAP.
This tutorial shows how to install the Flash player on a Linux system. It was tested on Dapper Drake (on an x86 - 32 bit machine).
It looks like Microsoft has accidentally leaked some details of the price of its next-generation operating system. At least for customers who live in the Great Frozen North.
