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.

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.
Creative Commons is pleased to announce that the O’Reilly Foundation has donated $10,000 towards CC’s $300,000 annual campaign goal. We are honored to be a receipient of such significant support.
Let me tell you a story. It is not about a man named Jed. Well, it could be - what with all those thousands of Debian developers out there, one of them might be called Jed. You never know.
A few weeks ago I installed Ubuntu Linux and decided that it will be my main Operating System for the months to come. I thought that I might pledge my allegiance to Linux and the Open Source community by taking this step.
In this article you will find ways of replacing text in a file according to given rules, either at the level of strings or of individual characters with sed.
There's been a lot of talk lately about Novel and Micorsoft's new deal. Most of it has been bad. Novel has done a lot good things to the Free Software world and the result of all this has been that once I saw openSUSE 10.2 available for download I went and got a hold of the iso and installed it on my system!
I swear one of these days the world will be overtaken by .pdf files. You see them everywhere! Instruction manuals seem to come as .pdf instead of print, maps & instructions online are in .pdf format. Now, using Ubuntu, how can we make our own PDF? Yeah, we can do it in a few steps below.
I have years of experience in Linux, and have used countless distributions in the past. Recently I got myself a Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook, and installing Slackware on it, was pleasant at first, but than soon I realized many things where not working.
