The movie players provided in Ubuntu can play back unencrypted DVDs. However, many commercial DVDs are encrypted with a weak algorithm called Content Scrambling System (CSS).You can enable playback of encrypted DVDs with MPlayer, xine and Totem-xine by installing libdvdcss2.
A terminal emulation program for TCP/IP networks such as the Internet. The Telnet program runs on your computer and connects your PC to a server on the network. Telnet is a common way to remotely control Web servers.
I recently reported on my good results with migrating an old server from RH7 to Debian Sarge, beginning with the network-install CD. I've now done an Etch install on the same Thinkpad I recently used for evaluating seven single-CD distros, and this article explains what I did and how it worked out.
The last days were quite interesting regarding KDE 4 development: Aaron released a screenshot showing the new Alt+F2 application launcher with translucency abilities and linked a public relations (or sometimes called propaganda) document introducing Oxygen to “normal” people.
Call me a sappy romantic if you must, but what I want for Christmas this year is this: for all of you to look around and really look at what you have created. It is more than just 1's and 0's, more than just Linus Torvalds' fan club, more than just the anti-Microsoft. It is the true meaning of giving and sharing, all wrapped up in a tarball.
It has been seven weeks since Novell and Microsoft announced their interoperability and patent protection deal. This week the companies revealed the first fruits of that pact and with them the first big-name staff defection.
Graphics software vendor Xara says its open source vector illustration project Xara LX is far from dead, even though work on it has slowed to a crawl in recent months.
As 2006 nears its close, Dave and Matt decided to try to do a "Year in Review" sort of post or two. This has been an exceptional year for open source.
Open Addict v3.0 is now back online, just in time for the Christmas holiday. Millions of Linux and BSD nerds undoubtedly need a place to point their new computers' web browsers and Open Addict v3.0 is back online for their viewing pleasure.
As I sit here plugging away on this XP box I started giving some thought to just what I'd have to do to switch over entirely to Linux. I've tried out Ubuntu on a 2nd machine of mine and I have to tell you that I really like it. It's fast, it looks good, there's plenty of free software modules available for it and it just plain works. So why, you ask haven't I switched my main machine over?
Can a game company make a profit producing commercial offerings for Linux? Two cross-platform offerings that run on Linux are hoping to show that it can be done.
Linux was founded on the command line. If you look around a little bit and find some of the Linux "old school" guys, you'll find that they tend to shy away from the gui. Linux has really stepped it up a notch visually.
Most of the big tech stories of 2006 have already gotten far too much coverage. Does anyone not know that HP hit a serious bump in the road this year due to its snooping on employees and board members? Other stories – with far more long-term importance – have gotten much less ink.
Will 2007 be the year of the Free Software desktop? David Chisnall's answer is "probably not, but who cares?" Microsoft won the desktop war; can Free Software win the next one?
Open-source software in schools will be the driving force for Gordon Brown’s proposed ‘Knowledge Economy’, it was claimed today. The claim comes from Bluefountain, after massive cross-party backbench support for a change in government policy for IT in education.
Dries Buytaert, the founder and maintainer of the excellent web CMS, Drupal, talks today about Sharepoint 2007. He calls it (and its "ilk" of software) "Collaboration Management Software," instead of "Content Management Software." I like that distinction.
Genealogy is a burgeoning hobby and to help the home genealogist, a whole range of software is available. Much of it is commercial but here I’ll look at one of the most popular free software options—GRAMPS. Charting your family history needn’t mean compromising on licensing.
VectorLinux, a lightweight, fast Linux distribution for the x86 platform, just released its new version 5.8 this week. This user-friendly distribution makes the average computer user's life easy by supplying office software, Web browsing, photo editing, and archiving on top of a fast, clean Xfce window manager.
The GNOME camp has pushed out a new development release in time for the holidays. GNOME 2.17.4 is another test release in the road to GNOME 2.18.0 in March of next year. Many packages were updated from GNOME 2.17.3, so this afternoon we had set out on a GARNOME adventure to capture some new GNOME screenshots to see how GNOME 2.17 is shaping up. Overall it looked quite well except for a few more bugs than normal.
