How To Integrate CCleaner’s Winapp2.ini File Into Bleachbit

The winapp2.ini is the file Preferences then to open the settings window. Locate “download and update cleaners from community (winapp2.ini)” and check it.You then need to restart the program so that the new definitions are downloaded and added to the program’s cleaning options. Downloading might be the easiest option, but it is not the best if you have modified the winapp2.ini file manually on your system. If you have added your own definitions to it, you might want to...

Have some Linux ascii fun with asciiquarium

Have some Linux ascii fun with asciiquarium

Never let it be said that Linux users and developers do not have a sense of humor. Even the most hardcore of users, developers, designers, and administrators need something to serve as a distraction. Oh sure there’s always an endless array of web sites to take our attention, but that requires a GUI! What if you’re spending a lot of time on your GUI-less Apache server, file server, or any other type of Linux server? What then? NCurses can only do so much with text right?...

4chan Downloader Saves All Thread Images Automatically

4chan regulars, who like the site because of its vast pool of images that get uploaded to the website every minute, often utilize software or extensions to download images automatically, or at least semi-automatically from the popular Internet message board. 4chan Downloader is on first glance just another tool for the job. The program takes a single url that points to a 4Chan thread, scans it for images and downloads them automatically to the selected location on the local hard...

Bodhi Linux: Enlightened Ubuntu

Bodhi Linux: Enlightened Ubuntu

If you’ve followed me long enough, you know I have a soft spot for the Enlightenment desktop. I have gone to all lengths to make sure my distribution of choice has either E16 or E17 installed for those days when I just need a little enlightenment. Those days are many. Fortunately there are plenty of others out there who feel the same, and the Enlightenment desktop benefits from this. You will find many distributions dedicated to Enlightenment. One of those is the new Bodhi Linux....

Add serious web content control with WebContentControl in Linux

There are many reasons why you might want or need to control what is seen via a web browser. Be it children, work, or any other reason, you might want to have more control than just your standard proxy software offers. That is where the incredibly powerful WebContentControl comes into play. The WebContentControl GUI takes control of (and helps you configure) DansGuardian, FireHol, and TinyProxy to create a very powerful system for controlling access to web sites. Let’s take a look...

Add titles to OpenShot Video Editor projects

Add titles to OpenShot Video Editor projects

Recently I began covering one of the best open source video editors available (see my articles “Create videos with OpenShot Video Editor” and “Add transitions with OpenShot Video Editor“.) From those two articles (and an ounce of creativity) you should already be creating outstanding videos for various purposes. But now it’s time we take it yet one step further and add titles to the videos you have created. The OpenShot Video Editor has a built-in tool for...

A walk around the GNOME desktop

A walk around the GNOME desktop

Recently I had a reader request a bit of a “how to” on the GNOME desktop. After giving it some thought, and at first wondering why anyone would need a walk around for the GNOME desktop, I realized that some users simply don’t have the ability to look at the computer desktop from the same vantage point as those of us who “get it”. With that thought in mind, I thought it would be a good idea to give a sort of walk through of the GNOME desktop from the perspective...

Queue music into Rhythmbox from Nautilus

Queue music into Rhythmbox from Nautilus

Nautilus is one versatile file manager. The ability to add actions (with the help of Nautilus Actions) makes Nautils’ ability seemingly endless. I have covered adding actions to Nautilus before (see my article “Add actions to extend Nautilus functionality“). That article covered an earlier version of Nautilus Actions. Now that this tool has matured quite a bit, I thought it wise to revisit the topic and show you yet another way you can take advantage of this ability...
