Fullerscreen is an extension that gives Web pages in Firefox the full run of your monitor. If you spend much time using Web-based applications like Gmail, Google Notebook, or Backpack, Fullerscreen is a must-have addition to Firefox.
If you’re a long-time NetWare user, you might think you know everything Novell-ish. However, the company looks a lot different these days than it used to, now that it is focused on Linux and is claiming customers who never used NetWare. So for those who remember NetWare fondly -- as well as those who wouldn’t know NetWare from OS/2 -- here are nine things we bet you don't know about Novell.
You can use Kerberos to verify the identities of users and principals over networks.
Linux for Clinics has released a Alpha testing release. Known issues... 1. Ubiquity icon is from Ubuntu 2. Initial boot screen on Livecd is still Ubuntu 3. Forgot to remove Gnome-Games 4. Forgot to install the medical dictionary for openoffice.org 5. No LFC upgrade path...Have not implemented our repository yet.
The Aims of the Linux For Clinics Project
A GPL provision to prevent Novell/Microsoft-type agreements may not pacify the open-source community
The latest draft of the GNU General Public Licence (GPL) has caused more ructions in the Linux community.
As I promised in my previous post I’ll report here on my experiences with the freshly installed Xubuntu Feisty Fawn. Though I’ll note the changes mentioned on other reviews, but I’ll also try to add changes that aren’t that apparent and that you haven’t read about elsewhere.
It's been quite a while since I've published a review of the workstation platforms from AMD and Intel, but, with all the changes in both platforms recently, it's high time. This brings us to this review of the Intel Xeon 5300 series processors and the AMD Opteron 2200 series processors.
For a few months I have been spending a lot of time using a Mac running OS/X for 40 hours a week. Recently a discussion started at a client site as to whether Macs or PCs should be used for future desktop machines.
A while back I posted about Rhythmbox including support for Open Content services such Jamendo and Magnatune. For a while now Rhythmbox has included support for last.fm and I have used it to update my account there. Well, today I went to fire up my music in Rhythmbox, clicked the last.fm entry and started listening to my Neighbour’s music.
My daily Slashdot newsletter told me all I needed to know in one simple headline: Google Desktop For Mac Released.
Honestly, I didn't want to click the link. I knew what was going to happen. I've been there...I've seen me do it. 4:30AM is way too early to go from first-cup-of-coffee to pissed-off in 3.7 seconds. I couldn't help myself. I clicked the link.
Welcome to this tutorial series on porting a PyGTK game to the OLPC’s Sugar environment. While we will be concentrating on a game called Block Party, the lessons taught here can be used as a guide to create or port any number of applications. Games are just more fun to learn with.
The Linux-based Dolphin file manager is now scheduled for official inclusion in KDE 4, the next major release of the KDE desktop environment. Dolphin includes several unique usability enhancements that aren't available in Konqueror, KDE's current file manager.
Linux Fund, an organization founded to fund open source projects through financing from affinity credit cards, is losing its affinity card provider. Linux Fund cardholders received official notice from the Bank of America recently that the program is being discontinued.
DEVELOPERS OF OpenBSD took code from their brethren at Linux, violating the code's licence, the GPL. To the horror of the Linux folk, the OpenBSD licence allows proprietary use.
The Linux coders went to great pains to reverse engineer Broadcom's wireless chipset. The company's hardware is found in many wireless devices, but Broadcom shuns open source.
I have been dying to say goodbye to Microsoft Windows for a number of years. I am fed up with the unceasing number of bugs, inexplicable system freezes, persistent gaping flaws that hackers can drive a truck through and empty promises of improvements with each new release. I'm ready to give Linux another try but is Linux ready for me?
Efforts to curb the practice in emerging markets fail to take into account the underlying reason it happens in the first place. Most software born in the United States is priced completely wrong for most emerging markets, given their economic state. There are also cultural considerations that are way beyond our U.S.-centric world view.
Linux has come a long way in a lot of areas, but if my experience is an indicator, we're not much further along in the use of personal webcams today than we were five years ago. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts to use Ekiga (formerly GnomeMeeting) as a video phone, I finally prevailed and got Ekiga working with both sound and video.
Richard Stallman looks like either a prophet or an aging hippie, but you would never mistake him for a businessman. His long brown hair, scraggily beard and penchant for T-shirts and loose-fitting pants are in sharp contrast to the striped suits worn by nearly everyone else in the technology industry.
Many modern Linux distributions, in the interest of security I guess, have made the root account hidden and without a password. So even if you drop to a terminal and try to log in as root you can't. I know it is very easy to add a root password it does defeat the design philosophy of the distribution.
After several weeks of discussion the leaders of Compiz and Beryl have agreed that the two communities shall reunite. This decision is supported by both David and Quinn and represents the majority decision of the administrators and developers in each community.
At this early stage not a lot has been decided, but these are the main points of the agreement:
