Looking for a simple X-based image viewer that replaces xv. Must not depend on Gnome/kde or other window manager libraries. Want something to use on a remote shell account over a remote X server. Must be a fast, lightweight program I can compile in it's own directory and run directly. Must be able to zoom in to parts of the image. Must support file formats: png and eps. Must not barf on large, hires images.submitted by hyperblaster

TuxArena: There was a time when office compatibility was a bit of a problem on Linux, but with the latest office suites out there available for Linux, this is not an issue anymore.
Manjaro 0.8.9, a Linux distribution based on well-tested snapshots of the Arch Linux repositories and 100% compatible with Arch, has just received its third update pack.
Manjaro developers usually launch several update packs for the latest stable release of their distribution, bringing new packages and some new Linux kernels.
Q: Hi, I've just switched to Linux. Can you recommend me some good movie player?
1/ Did you try to read books??? They are great!!!
2/ well last time i saw a movie it was this abysmal rubbish from hollywood complete waste of time dude
3/ Real Player is absolutely fantastic. Except... It's only for Windows.
4/ I don't now, but you can try Gimp. I've heard, you can make animated gifs in it.
5/ Why do you want to play movies? Why did you switch to Linux in the first place!?
6/ I'd recommend you to install Archlinux, it's the best distribution in the world! Then, you can play movies inside your terminal. It's so cool!
7/ Hi. I'm moderator of this subreddit. You should've posted your question to /r/recommendmeamovieplayeronlinuxafteriswitchedfromwindows. Here in /r/linuxmovieapps it's off-topic and I will remove it. Please, read our rules next time. Thanks.submitted by Artranjunk

So I've been loving the Humble Bundles and have ended up with at this point close to 40 games both on and off of Steam, and sadly I'd say close to half or more don't work. In many cases it appears to be issues with my older video card that has some functionality that these games are looking for and aren't finding (I'm not sure of the exact model = KDE tells me it's an Nividia GeForce 6200?). So I know I need to upgrade to get many of these things working, but I don't have a lot of cash to blow on a video card. I saw NewEgg has a ton of Nvidia (which I think I'd like to stick with) cards for under $50 but it's been so long since I've dug into the hardware side of things I'm not sure what to look for - any recommendations on a card in that price range that may not give me amazing performance but would at least be functional? Thanks for your suggestions!submitted by Shadoglare
I'm well adverse in making a live usb or cd for when I want to try/install a linux distro....What would be ideal is a piece of software that lets you just drop an iso into a specific folder and when you boot to this hdd it list all the iso you placed in the folder as options to boot to....I know there are programs that let you create multiboot usb but I'm looking for something I can use on the fly with any config just drop into the folder and boot to it..........Does anyone know of something that does this....Thankssubmitted by liberty71
I'm trying to evaluate ArchBang and eventually move to it. However, I'm a bit confused on how I can achieve that with my current disk layout:
Disk /dev/sda: 750.2 GB, 750156374016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 91201 cylinders, total 1465149168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x57ee2cfd
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 2048 206847 102400 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda2 206848 204802047 102297600 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda3 204802048 1055545343 425371648 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda4 1055547390 1465147391 204800001 5 Extended
Partition 4 does not start on physical sector boundary.
/dev/sda5 1055547392 1457008639 200730624 83 Linux
/dev/sda6 1457010688 1465147391 4068352 82 Linux swap / Solaris
My current eOS installation resides on /dev/sda5. I have an option of destroying the NTFS on /dev/sda3 and using it for the ArchBang installation. Unfortunately, I didn't create a separate partition for /home when I installed eOS so migrating to a different distro looks a bit tricky to me. I'm looking for pointers on how I can migrate to ArchBang (having the system triple boot would be preferred) and also have a separate partition for /home for future ease of migration. Unfortunately, I cannot remove the Windows installation on /dev/sda2 until the end of this month. Any advice would be appreciated.submitted by turnturnturnturn
I tried this over at the /r/IT_CERT_STUDY subreddit, but nothing conclusive came up.
I am trying to find a highly recommended source to help me study for the Linux+ certification. In the past I used Mike Myers and Prof. Messer for the Security and Network+ cert exams, but Myer's book on Linux+ is outdated (2008), and Messer just started making Linux+ videos and only has a few out there.
Do you all have any recommended sources to study for the Linux+ certification exam? Thanks all!submitted by p0wderedtoastman
