n January 30th I installed Ubuntu Linux and decided to give it a serious try. I’ve heard that installing software on Linux is very difficult. That may have been true once but it is a myth today. The truth is, installing software in Ubuntu is a far better and easier process that it has ever been in Windows.
As part of Mozilla Corporation's ongoing stability and security update process, Firefox 184.108.40.206 and Firefox 220.127.116.11 are now available for Windows, Mac, and Linux for free download from http://getfirefox.com.
Due to the security fixes, we strongly recommend that all Firefox users upgrade to these latest releases.
I am always getting suggestions on what the next Distro we should be reviewing. Many tell me to do the majors, such as Gentoo or Debian. While I agree that many people would like to see these, most newbies to Linux really should stay away from these in my humble opinion.
This is the promised followup to the recent article which basically establishes significant flaws in execution of the World Domination 201 plan which by all means seems to have started. The flaws are in the nature of the business model employed by the company who is apparently supposed to play a crucial role in this plan, Linspire.
What was particularly interesting (apart from the the fact that most of the people who didn’t use Ubuntu used Gentoo) was how Ubuntu, and as such Linux and free software, is becoming part and parcel of peoples lives.
When Apple introduced “sleep” especially on its laptops, it raised the bar in the industry because people loved the feature. The feature existed before but Apple really made it one of the reasons why someone would want a Mac laptop.
Are you looking for a Windows alternative for serious office work? Many people are starting to wonder about their non-Microsoft operating system options, especially given Windows Vista's hefty hardware demands, upgrade costs and license restrictions. Scot Finnie, Computerworld's online editorial director, has already examined using Mac OS X in the workplace.
This morning I came across a blog entry by Jonathan Steffan, who is working on new Fedora XGL packages. In this blog post he expresses disappointment in owning ATI hardware and bashes the binary blob for the lack of AIGLX support.
The Software Freedom Law Center (SFLC), provider of pro-bono legal services to protect and advance Free and Open Source Software, has added the GNOME Foundation as a new client.
Oracle CEO Larry Ellison was spreading the love for his competitors on the company's third quarter conference call.
Notably, Ellison said Oracle replaced Red Hat for Linux support at Yahoo.
Novell today announced that, as expected, it received an additional notice of non-compliance from the staff of the NASDAQ Stock Market due to the delay in filing its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended Jan. 31, 2007, as required by NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(14).
In an earlier post I unfairly trashed Google Earth. The problem, as I've just discovered, more than likely rests with my graphics hardware platform, not Google Earth. While I was working with SLED 10 this morning I pulled down another copy of Google Earth and installed it on SLED.
Kino is one of the better free software video editors for Linux, but it isn't always intuitive. Consider such common tasks as adding titles and graphics to a clip. The best approach isn't obvious. After a little exploring, I figured out good ways to add titles and graphics.
Are we learning GIMP yet?
Inexpensive and driverless - two words that any computer user can appreciate, especially after having gone through a few upgrades that caused problems of their own. As a basic VGA webcam without a microphone that adheres to the relatively new USB Video Class specification, Creative's Live! Cam Optia fills such a void. Are these enticements worth the hassle? Read on to find out.
Whether you're learning a foreign language or just need to look up an unknown word or phrase, a good dictionary application can come in handy. JaLingo and StarDict are two such tools. Each sports a polished GUI and a set of features that puts it among the best dictionary applications on Linux.
John W. Backus, who led the team at IBM that created the computer language Fortran, died Saturday, at age 82.
Fortran, released in 1957, was considered a major step forward in computer programming languages. It was used for intensive supercomputing problems, and thanks to the creation of multiple compilers, was one of the first languages to be widely used across different architectures.
BibleTime is a Bible study program. I have used a few of these under Windows, but found them mostly cumbersome. They were memory hogs and the interface was unappealing and clunky. The amount of available information was astounding however, but one program did not differ greatly from the other. They all used the vast resources that are available in the public domain.
If you type a command on Linux that doesn't exist, normally you get this:-
-bash: mplayer: command not found
With the package command-not-found installed (which is by default installed as of Ubuntu 7.04 [Feisty] [due out in April]) you get something like this:-
The program 'mplayer' can be found in the following packages:
