Zimbra is a full-featured, open source collaboration suite - email, group calendaring, contacts, and web document management and authoring. This guide shows how to install the Zimbra Collaboration Suite (ZCS) on Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft) and 6.06 (Dapper Drake) server systems.
One of the big visual changes just happened in KDE 4, the transition of kdelibs to the Oxygen Icon set. This transition is still in progress, and it includes a massive icon naming scheme change that affects thousands of files. But, the Oxygen artwork project much is more than just an icon set, it's a unified way to do artwork for KDE 4.
Data can be lost in different ways some of them are because of hardware failures,you accidentally delete or overwrite a file. Some data loss occurs as a result of natural disasters and other circumstances beyond your control. Now we will see a easy backup and restore tool called "sbackup"
Thunar is a file manager that is shipped by default with XFCE and is a integral part of XFCE desktop environment. It is similar to Nautilus but uses much less resource as compared to Nautilus, and in fact one of the goals of creating Thunar was to create a file manager that was fast, clean and easy to use.
Doodle is a tool to quickly search the documents on a computer. Doodle builds an index using meta-data contained in the documents and allows fast searches on the resulting database. Doodle uses libextractor to support obtaining meta-data from various file-formats. The database used by doodle is a suffix tree, resulting in fast lookups.
Release Candidate 1 of SimplyMEPIS 6.5 has just been released and since I was planning on reviewing beta 7, I figured I might as well download RC1 before doing my official review. I am using the 64-bit version on my desktop.
The University of Melbourne's University Systems Project is set to undergo its largest transformation since its launch four years ago with the core Unix systems to be replaced by Linux by the end of the year.
Oracle Corp. promised to take the Linux software world by storm last October, but the major expansion by one of the world's largest software companies so far has failed to show momentum.
Ubuntu Linux was started in 2004 by Mark Shuttleworth: an entrepreneur that made his fortunes by selling his company Thawte to VeriSign. According to distrowatch.com, Ubuntu has held the number 1 spot for several years as the most popular Linux distribution. And even at this point in time, with the top Linux distribution, the future is very uncertain.
What LiveCD distro is out there that uses KDE as the primary desktop, but is stocked with best of breed apps appropriate to the questions the lab is asking and answering? Knoppix would seem to be the obvious answer.
Dell's latest launch has really taken off. Unfortunately for Dell's crumbling profitability, it's a website called IdeaStorm, not a new PC. The problem for Dell is that by far the most popular suggestion is one that Dell will find hard to implement.
Ubuntu enjoys giving it releases funny animal names. There have been "warty warthog", "hoary hedgehog", "breezy badger", "dapper drake", "edgy eft", and the coming "feisty fawn." Well, with nothing better to blog about this week, I've decided to provide my suggestions for names.
Periodically, the suggestion is made. The latest similar argument - though he does not, in fact, take Apple’s name in vain - comes from Jeremiah Foster in the form of an open letter to Mark Shuttleworth, of Canonical/Ubuntu fame (oh yeah, and Soyuz). When I’m asked whether or not I agree with that strategy, I usually hesitate.
The Free Software Foundation announced details for its annual associate member and activist meeting to be held at MIT, Cambridge, MA, on Saturday, March 24th, 2007.
Pondering a little on some small issues like kdeutils lacking KEdit (not fixed in 2007.1) or kdeutils not having KRegExpEditor (to be fixed in 2007.1), I wonder what would be the best policy with regards to the granularity, size and contents of the PiSi packages.
I was using Ubuntu in my laptop for a long time and then moved to Kubuntu recently. Both Ubuntu and Kubuntu didn’t recognize my built in web camera. After I read that OpenSuSe recognized the webcam for Daniel Aleksandersen, I thought I would give that a try without an idea of how painful it was going to be.
A Linux system immediately snaps to attention and does your bidding, with no hassle at all. Even when you tell it to do something impossible, it tries to make you happy and only reports back to you upon failure. If you're tired of the computer popping up an "Are you sure?" dialog box in your face, you'll love Linux.
I created this post to document all of the small things I do on my Ubuntu systems to make them customized for me. My hope is that people who want to do similar things will learn from my experiences.
