Timed downloads

Ubuntu
HowTos

For quite some time I've been looking for a tool to download a list of files (stored in a text file) at a certain time and, if possible, shutdown after completion. Unfortunately there is no know Linux-application that can perform these tasks. Then I got the idea to combine the use of Wget with that of a scheduler.

The Perfect Desktop - Kubuntu 9.10

Filed under
Ubuntu
HowTos

This tutorial shows how you can set up a Kubuntu 9.10 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge. Kubuntu 9.10 is derived from Ubuntu 9.10 and uses the KDE desktop instead of the GNOME desktop.

Four Things a New Linux User Should Know

If you’re making the move from Windows or Mac (or even from Android or iOS), welcome to our world. These days, using Linux for doing everyday computer tasks isn’t that much different than using other operating systems — meaning the learning curve is only slight.
