If you are like me, one reason you switched to Linux is for customization. On Ubuntu, you don't get that luxury all the time. So, I will show you how to get two of the latest engines available, Murrine and Candido, on your spiffy Ubuntu machine.
The difference between the two operating systems and what really makes the hair split is the underlying design philosophy that went into creating these essential parts of our computing experience.
From time to time, it is not uncommon to encounter a confession on the net, a bleating essay that says "I can't run Linux, though I'd love to", and advances a host of assorted "reasons" for this act of commission.
This month's Linux Gazette is online and ready to read. Some highlights include A Beginner's Guide to Dual Booting Linux Mint and Windows XP, Interview: Orv Beach, and Keymap and IOCTLs.
As some of you who monitor the KDE news sphere may have noticed, there has been a recent addition to the kdebase module. The Dolphin File Manager has been added to complement Konqueror's browsing capabilities. Read on for more information about this new File Manager and its relationship to Konqueror and the rest of KDE.
A few weeks ago I tried to improve the visual appearance of my boot process using usplash and a matching grub splash theme. Since creating usplash themes is rather tricky and not really suitable for the average user I decided to switch to splashy. So here is my current solution for a nice bootup:
Kadischi was created in 2005 by Darko Ilic specifically for creating Fedora based Live CDs. Although it is still in active early development, it is still quite usable. What this means to the average user, is that there currently are not any RPMs for Kadischi; it is only downloadable from CVS. Fear not, this is covered below, and it’s quite easy to build.
Novell Inc. reported a quarterly loss on Thursday, missing Wall Street forecasts as the business software maker's sales fell and it took a charge for a consulting unit that it aims to sell.
I know there’s a portion of Ubuntu (and other distro) users who resent six virtual consoles running at a time, in addition to the X desktop in a default Ubuntu setup. I would agree that six is probably overkill, but removing them completely would be nuts.
Many of us do still remember the Alley Cat and Mario and Contra and other classic games we used to play whether on Nintendo NES or DOS or SNES, these games were simple compared to todays games but were very entertaining nonetheless. In this article i describe how to play these games on your Ubuntu box.
Microsoft Corp.’s Open XML file format cleared a small hurdle Wednesday, after documents released by the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) showed fewer countries harboring strong objections than had been expected.
Andreas Jaeger presented slides at Fosdem 2007 on highlights of the major new features of openSUSE 10.3. One idea is to provide a minimal install of a base system and complete the remaining over the network to reduce downloading and media waste. Other key areas are performance improvements and early KDE 4 adoption.
If you’ve used your Ubuntu machine for more than a week you’ve probably run into the sudo command. Now what happens when you have another user on that machine that needs certain superuser privileges but you don’t want to give them FULL access?
The Red Hat-sponsored Fedora project is undergoing several changes before the release of its next version. In preparation for Fedora 7, which will fuse the Core and Extra software repositories, Fedora's developers are auditing the repositories for non-free and non-open software that doesn't meet the project's guidelines. Eventually, the project may change its package guidelines to only allow Free Software.
Freedom of choice is one of the great benefits of Open Source Software in general and Linux in particular. However, a couple of announcements this week seem to indicate that market value of freedom of choice has dipped considerably. The biggest hurdle Linux adoption faced this week wasn't Microsoft, it was an enemy from within: Linux fragmentation.
The update from one Fedora version to the next by yum was never officially supported - however, given that you were brave enough it could work out. However, for the next Fedora version you shouldn’t try it because you might even make your system unbootable!
It is my privilege to announce on behalf of the team members of the PCLinuxOS Magazine Project sponsored by MyPCLinuxOS.com, the March 2007 issue (#7) is available for download! Our previous issues can also be downloaded.
Mozilla Firefox, a free, open-source web browser for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, has long had a loyal cult following. Now Datamation’s readers have taken notice, choosing Firefox – narrowly – to win its Product of the Year award in the Anti-Spam category.
Writing in O'Reilly's Radar, Nat Torkington argues that the term "open source" is becoming meaningless. He points to SugarCRM's badgeware, through which, he claims, only two-thirds of their code is downloadable, and rPath and MontaVista, which "sell software that works on Linux but the software itself isn't actually open source."
Content filtering for the Web can be a messy proposition. A business may need to block only the most objectionable Web sites, while schools may be required by law to follow a more thorough process. Whatever your needs, you can build a solution with only open source pieces: squid, squidGuard, and blacklists.
