By default, Ubuntu has no desktop icons. You can change that to include things like Computer and the Home Folder.
"Spring forward; Fall back," That's the way the saying goes. Some years I get it backwards, but I eventually catch on. I've never had to worry about my PCs getting it wrong before, though. Now, with the recent changes in the Daylight Savings Time (DST) rules, I do.
Instigated by Thierry’s comment on bug 28682, I did some work on ldetect-lst. ldetect-lst is the Big List Of Recognised Hardware. First I fixed the ATI definitions and I dumped all the various old NVIDIA definitions and refactored them all into these six categories, then dropped a patch in Bugzilla.
Intel's World Ahead program took another step forward this month when Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, the president of Brazil, received one of Intel's Classmate PC mobile devices. The Classmate PC given to President Silva is one of 30 prototype units sent to the nation's Ministry of Education for technical evaluation. Intel plans to provide another 800 units next month for a preliminary field test.
Tux Strikes Back is a level set for SuperTux 0.1.3 (Milestone 1), the famou 2d jump'n run sidescrolling game featuring Tux in Action. It comes with 18 levels and its own story and world map.
Installing libxine-extracodecs will get you the most wide-spread codecs installed, but not all of them. MPlayer, a movie player program for Linux, has support for a big bunch of video and audio formats. Here’s how to install them manually.
The KDE games development for KDE 4 recently introduced a GGZ backend. It will empower users to play their games on the internet.
The next stable XO build will see the first beta release of the TamTam music editor. TamTam Edit is a page driven event sequencer featuring a powerful music generator, a colorful and intuitive graphical interface to create, modify and organise notes on five virtual “tracks.”
For a long time now I’ve been looking for something between Dillo and Iceweasel (which I find a little faster than straight Firefox). I want to like Dillo in the same way I want to like Fluxbox, but Dillo never does it for me. Iceweasel/Firefox do everything a competent browser should do, but they don’t do it fast enough for me.
I ran across a few settings the other day that can help speed up your Nautilus file browser within gnome. This would work for those of you on older machines, of even those that want to get a little more out of your newer machines.
I took a look at srlinuxx a couple of years ago and she was quite the gal. I thought this would be a good chance to catchup and see how she has progressed over the past few years.
After a couple of weeks of using Ubuntu, I finally took out some time to setup bluetooth as I thought it would be a fairly ‘power user’ task with lots of console commands and apt-gets. Boy was I wrong.
I have a number of friends who are new to using computers and recently when Windows Vista was launched a lot of them were really impressed with the snazzy graphics vista offered. When i said that Ubuntu with Beryl provided a interface that could compete with Aero interface and to top it is free and comes at no cost whats so ever well they did not quite believe me. So i decided to make a movie of my desktop showing all the glitzy effects.
Many would-be Linux users don't make the leap because there are one or two Windows applications they just can't live without. That doesn't have to hold them back anymore. Thanks to Wine.
Java 5 added a number of powerful language features: generics, enumerations, annotations, autoboxing, and the enhanced for loop. Even if you're stuck on JDK 1.4, you can still use generics. Use Java and theory to learn how.
There have been a lot of speculation over where the next ‘how to’ article would come from. Would it be a how to switch to OS2 article? Who would write it and where would it come from? I’ve decided to take on the task with this (tongue-in-cheek) look at switching from Ubuntu to Windows Vista.
Due to four regressions identified in the latest Firefox 184.108.40.206/220.127.116.11 updates released a few day ago, Mozilla is already planning very quick 18.104.22.168/1.5/0/11 releases probably next week.
Linux users can choose from several big, bulky financial packages to manage their finances, but what about consultants and freelancers who just need to whip out a few basic invoices by the end of the month? For that niche, Simple Invoices, a Web-based, GPLed invoicing system, is a winner for folks with a bit of tech savvy.
