In the battle to spread the use of GNU/Linux, it is often forgotten that education has to be the starting point. People need to be educated to the point where they come to demand decent behaviour from an operating system; companies need educated admins to keep GNU/Linux systems running.
Ubuntu is a strong desktop distro, but it falls short for some users in a few areas. Where are the multimedia codecs and DVD support, and what's with all the brown, for heaven's sake? If you'd like multimedia support with a minty fresh theme, try Linux Mint 2.2, an Ubuntu-based distro that throws in support for Flash 9, Windows Media Format, DVDs, MP3s, and troublesome wireless cards.
Here is the official announcement of a video player I'm calling Video Player. If your a Codeine user and it looks familiar, thats the idea. Codeine is the "usability focus, simple video player" that Max Howel developed using KDE3 and xine-lib. So I asked Max a couple of weeks ago if I could port Codeine to KDE4 and Phonon.
I normally use Ubuntu on my desktop boxen but, over the past couple of weeks, I've been whiling away the time waiting for Feisty by playing with openSUSE 10.2 instead. Some of the things I like about it:
To identify and monitor who is running what applications, which the application is listening to what port, established what connections, we can use lsof. lsof (List Open Files) are use for listing all current opened files. Besides the file name, it includes info such as who open it, what command use to open it, what type of file is it etc.
In a bid to highlight the ease with which applications can be ported to Linux, the Mono project IBM and Mainsoft will host the 'Race to Linux 2.0'. Visual Studio developers will have to choose from a list of ASP.Net 2.0 applications at the start of each race and port them using their development environment of choice.
I’ve always liked Trolltech. They make Qt, the cross platform application development framework that forms the basis of the K Desktop Environment (KDE–my desktop of choice). So when Trolltech contacted Red Hat to get us to review their SDK, I jumped at the chance.
One of the nice things about using Xen is that it doesn't require much setup to create new guests - just a loopback file or two, or an LVM partition. If you use NFS to store your remote systems you don't even need that. Here we'll give a quick example of booting Xen guests which will mount their root file-systems via NFS.
Since Firefox introduced its concept of a search bar at the bottom instead of an additional window several users asked for this to be implemented in KDE as well. Several KDE applications now implemented own versions of such a search bar, the newest app is konsole.
Mandriva is pleased to announce the launch of the beta program of Corporate Desktop 4.0, the brand new version of its enterprise-dedicated work station.
The time you come to realise just how dependent you have become on your computer is when things go terribly wrong. Your partitions won’t mount, your files seem corrupt or, worst of all, your entire hard drive seems to have become unreadable. Here we will look at some preventative measures and – in case bad things do happen – some tips for disaster recovery.
It's a fair question, I think. Should Linspire give up Linspire 5.0+, contribute time and resources to Freespire (amongst other distribution projects) and concentrate on making Linux services the core aspect of their company?
The British government could save more than £600 million a year if it used more open source software, the shadow chancellor has estimated. George Osborne said the savings would cut 5% off Whitehall's annual IT bill.

After three months of hard work we are proud to announce a new release of the user manual for GIMP 2.2. Changes: New content (incl. spelling and grammar fixes) for German, French, Italian, Norwegian, Russian, Spanish and Korean, and Lots of bug fixes.
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.
