the distrogue: I had the question asked again. You know the one: "Where's my C:\ drive?". So, to prevent it from happening again, I'm writing a guide to the Linux filesystem for Windows users.
/home/liquidat: After playing around with the OpenSuse Build Service for some days now I decided to build development packages of kblogger as a first real life test.
desktoplinux: Walter Bender, the One Laptop Per Child program's director of software, told DesktopLinux.com on July 13 that he invites Dell Computer founder and CEO Michael Dell to help figure out how to better use 125 million computers that are discarded annually because they are archaic.
Everyone uses a monitor, mouse, and keyboard. What are the best choices of equipment for these?
softpedia: Gobuntu is a just like Kubuntu or Xubuntu, a flavor of the Ubuntu distribution that has a very strict set of restrictions on the licenses of code and content. The installation process of Gobuntu is text mode-based, and it is quite painful for most users, because it will not detect modern hardware.
watchingthenet: For Window users switching to Linux or Ubuntu, performing simple tasks can be a challenge. One simple task such as checking free and used hard drive disk space on Ubuntu.
Also: Ubuntu taskswitching
Linux Online: A recent blog post entitled Confessions of a Linux Fan has provoked some discussion in the Linux community. In it, the author lists 10 things (10 seems to be the preferred number of these kinds of posts) that new Linux users should be aware of. The disinformation you see out there about Linux needs to be refuted.
LinuxPlanet: Want to get rid of the evil caps lock key without mutilating your keyboard? Want to give those silly Windows keys useful jobs, or put all those extra multi-media keys to work? Want to become a powerhouse keyboarding commando? Then come along and join the fun.
greatsouthernlad: Funny thing happened today. I thought it would be great to listen to a little Australian Rules Football. About half way through my Mini mac dramas, I wonder whether my Ubuntu (Feisty) installation on my laptop would fair any better.
linuxdevices: Palm's Linux-powered Foleo has potential, but only if Palm can stop denying that the device is actually laptop, reckons Sascha Segan of Gearlog. Palm has positioned the Foleo as a "mobile companion" for itinerant workers needing only email, document prep, and PowerPoint capabilities.
kdedevelopers: The akonadi provider relies on the OpenChange libraries, which in turn rely on Samba 4. The problem is that GPLv2 and GPLv3 are not compatible. My code is fine - it is "GPLv2 or later". The incompatibility is that Qt is released under GPLv2 (not "or later").
adamw: Mandriva recently completed its participation in the KDE aKademy 2007 conference, sponsoring the event, presenting various technologies, and providing Mandriva Flash keys to developers attending the conference. Today Mandriva announces a similar program for the GNOME conference, GUADEC 2007, which is taking place in Birmingham from July 15th to July 21st.
Red Hat Mag: This is actually the second summer we’ve run Red Hat High. We learned a lot of lessons in our first year. The biggest lesson: We’re a technology company, not a summer camp company.
The Open Source Advocate: If Ubuntu wants to be taken seriously in the workplace, it needs a secure remote desktop. Many people have a need to connect to their work computer from home using remote desktop technology.
MozillaLinks: All European countries saw an increase in Firefox participation with Hungary showing the most dramatic increase from 27.2%, in the latest March 2007 survey, to 39.7%. Overall, Europe grew from 24.1% to 27.8%.
Motho ke motho ka botho: One thing I forgot to mention about my thus-far-successful adventure tuning my coworker’s VAIO … Xubuntu ran awfully slow on that machine. The live CD was so sluggish as to be unusable. It was PUD/GNU Linux that saved the day.
Matt Asay: One week after Palamida reported a rather sluggish start to GPLv3 adoption, we're up 41% and growing quickly. This could represent 10% of all active open source projets.
Most Photoshop techniques make heavy use of "layer effects" when it comes to creating glassy buttons. I modified one of those techniques so that it could be applied to the Gimp environment that lacks this feature. The following tutorial shows you how to create a glassy button in 5 easy steps.
Linux Today: For the past couple of weeks, I have been more than a little pensive about the nature of the new GNU General Public License (v3). Lately, certain events have made me stop and see the problem more from the side of the free/open source software developers.
