ars geek: Have you ever wanted to just grab any old TrueType font of the web and start using it in applications on your Ubuntu machine? Did you know that you can and it’s not all that hard? Here’s how to get your system to recognize new fonts for any user.
amarok.kde.org: The Amarok 2 Jingle Contest is well underway, and even though the contest runs until the 1st of October we have already received some pretty cool submissions.
linux.com: Mozilla's Sunbird calendaring application lives perpetually in the shadow of its siblings Firefox and Thunderbird, garnering just a fraction of the developer effort and publicity lavished on the browser and email client. Nevertheless, it is slowing maturing into a reliable tool worthy of the Mozilla brand.
We released 9.22 today and it's a recommended security update. Bit Torrent also received some nice improvements, so it should be quite a bit faster now.
phoronix: Last month was an interesting time for AMD and their ATI Linux display driver. The Radeon HD 2400 and 2600 series were introduced, but as we have unfortunately come to expect, there was not a supported R600 driver that day or even that month.
linux.com: The alpha 1 development release of Damn Small Linux (DSL) 4.0, which hit the Net on Tuesday, is "a very different version" that includes a number of features requested by users on the DSL forums.
open device: KDE 4 is coming, and it is bringing a truckload of improvements and goodies. Among these, there is the brand-new Oxygen icon theme. It is not straightforward to obtain a KDE 3 -installable theme from the KDE 4 SVN repository, however someone (as often happens in the OSS world) has done the dirty work for you
penguin pete: Half of the battle in graphic design is working smarter, not harder. I've done some tutorials for Gimp which push that tool to its limits, but too many folks focus on Gimp and forget that we have a whole arsenal of power graphics tools on the Linux desktop. Here is one image which would have been a pain to do in Gimp, but a snap in Inkscape.
the dot: KDE's new technical documentation library, TechBase, hit an important milestone today when it served up its one millionth page. In step with the KDE 4.0 development cycle, TechBase is rapidly maturing into a central hub for high-level technical information related to KDE and the Free software desktop.
beineri's blog: Today one of my hack week projects went online: openSUSE News. Actually I have been working on it together with Robert Lihm already before and finished it only after.
tectonic: Microsoft's plans of having its OOXML document format accepted as a South African national standard were thwarted by a conclusive vote against the move in a meeting yesterday.
Trusted Reviews: To read most of the digital press, you’d think InDesign was the only big-league desktop publishing (DTP) application anyone took seriously. A few might add QuarkXpress to that. There is a third contender, though, from a rather unusual source.
OpenOffice.org Tips: Here are some great tips that I think are useful: formulas, related items, and calculations built into Edit > Paste Special.
itmanagement: OK, I’ll be honest with you, the more I use Linux, the more I’m warming to it. But there’s one aspect of Linux that’s putting me off. This is the fact that to play a DVD or use WMA/WMV files I have to install codecs that are technically illegal to use.
tgdaily: This is the first install of what will be a periodic, ongoing series on how migrate from Microsoft's Windows to other Operating systems. This first article provides insight in the much discussed Ubuntu Linux.
rcpmag.com blogs: James Bottomley is really on top of things (sorry -- we had to say it) when it comes to Linux. The CTO of SteelEye Technology is also on the board of the Linux Foundation. As such, Bottomley's obviously got some insight into Microsoft's continued patent deals with Linux distributors.
This document describes how to install a PureFTPd server that uses virtual users from a MySQL database instead of real system users. This is much more performant and allows to have thousands of ftp users on a single machine.
softpedia: I have recently heard of an ambitious project, called Menhir, which targets the noble idea of bringing Linux closer to its users and providing more information on each of its aspects. According to its creator, the project mainly searches to bring to the users’ knowledge information on all the four open source systems.
kernelTRAP: In a continued thread about how the recently merged Completely Fair Scheduler affects the nice command, Ingo Molnar offered a history of nice levels in the Linux kernel. He began by describing the three most frequent complaints he has received.
