Recently a friend of mine was asking how to disable locking (prompting for a password) after resuming from closing the laptop lid. I checked out some of the immediate places first. Maybe it was in “Power Options” or “Screensaver”. No. Where else would it be?
Looking at 10.2 and asking if it is ready as Enterprise Desktop. Then realizing that is the wrong question for the computer at hand, and installing Linux Mint 2.0.
If you haven’t done so already, go read the OLPC HIG now. I swear to God, this document is a work of pure, inspired genius. Will it work? I don’t know. But if you have an ounce of interest in your body for design, you will admire their balls and creativity.
A non-profit organisation that describes itself as "the centre of gravity of Linux" has just gone through its second round of sackings in as many years though on the surface it does not seem to be exactly short of funds.
There are several ways to manage software with the new openSUSE 10.2. Here is a short overview dealing with the different possibilities and showing each time how to add an additional installation source.
Novell's openSUSE 10.2 is an exciting desktop operating environment that includes or supports nearly every program you need for work and play. But there are those last few programs and issues that make openSUSE just short of perfect. This guide will help you remove as many of those barriers as possible.
The commands offer ways to take plain text files and tidy them up or present them differently for display or printing.
The Linux apologists are the ones pushing to throw away everything that makes Linux Linux in the feverish hopes that Linux will replace Microsoft and get the world market. Doubtless, I could circulate this to ten random technology blogs and in the morning there will be ten new "Linux will never make it on the desktop" editorials. The suggestions will run the gamut from how Linux "elitists" drive newbies away, through to suggestions that we throw away the folder hierarchy system, and there will be plenty of bashing of Linux's user interface along the way. You could set your watch to it.
This tutorial will outline how to configure your synaptics touchpad (for laptops) via a nice pretty GUI interface. Allowing configuration for general settings (on / off, etc) to scrolling and tapping. You can even change the settings so that you can do a 360 around your touchpad to scroll up/down!
Just when the Mono Project was beginning to gain traction, along comes Sun Microsystems to take the wind from its sails. I can’t help but feel it’s a mixed blessing.
With these steps you can share info with Linux and Windows for Firefox and Mozilla. All your bookmarks, history etc. will be the same from Linux to Windows. Mail sent, received etc. will be the same from Windows to Linux.
Login to ubuntu from your usual administrative account which has sudo access, make sure you have enough ram, swap space and disk space as per oracle requirements. Install the required packages:
Dial-up access is a form of Internet access through which the client uses a modem connected to a computer and a telephone line to dial into an Internet service provider’s (ISP) node to establish a modem-to-modem link, which is then routed to the Internet.
While NVIDIA has already introduced their G80 8800GTX, after several delays the ATI/AMD camp still has not delivered their next-generation graphics processor: the R600 GPU. While the R600 remains behind closed doors the X1950 remains the fastest Radeon series available. Among the products in the X1950 family is the X1950 CrossFire, X1950PRO, X1950XT, and X1950XTX. What we are looking at today is the X1950PRO, which for this article is coming from ASUS. The ASUS EAX1950PRO offers 256MB of GDDR3, HDCP support, heatpipe-based GPU heatsink, and many more ASUS innovations.
This guide describes how to generate and use a private/public key pair to log in to a remote system with SSH using PuTTY. PuTTY is an SSH client that is available for Windows and Linux (although it is more common on Windows systems). Using key-based SSH logins, you can disable the normal username/password login procedure which means that only people with a valid private/public key pair can log in. That way, there is no way for brute-force attacks to be successful, so your system is more secure.
The domain name system (DNS) stores and associates many types of information with domain names, but most importantly, it translates domain names (computer hostnames) to IP addresses. It also lists mail exchange servers accepting e-mail for each domain. In providing a worldwide keyword-based redirection service, DNS is an essential component of contemporary Internet use.
Banshee 0.11.3 was released today and features a bunch small new features and bug fixes, but also includes some pretty big performance enhancements. Since I've already written a HOWTO for Banshee 0.11, I decided to updated it for Banshee 0.11.3. On with the installation instructions:
Birmingham City Council released a case study for their open source desktop trial. Buried in the 67 page document is the reason for choosing KDE: quick to configure and the bouncing launch feedback cursor.
Since yesterday I’ve been evaluating SuSe, and I’m pretty impressed by the distro. It’s an awesome distribution now. However the desktop installation did not go as smoothly as that installation on my laptop.
