Bodhi Linux: Enlightened Ubuntu

Bodhi Linux: Enlightened Ubuntu

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 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...

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Anche se usate Windows 7 in cui  viene lasciato il computer “fermo” alla schermata di accesso al sistema (quella di nome utente e password)  e desiderate abilitare lo screensaver nella schermata di logon anche su Windows 7, in cui tale opzione è disabilitata di default, l’operazione si può fare manipolando alcune chiavi dei registro ed indicando lo screensaver che preferiamo, anche uno del sistema operativo...

Mz 7 Optimizer Windows 7 Tweaker

Mz 7 Optimizer Windows 7 Tweaker

Windows 7, like any other Microsoft operating system, has lots of hidden settings and options that can be used to tweak the operating system to increase the performance or improve the functionality of it. Tweaking applications like Mz 7 Optimizer are the preferred way of many Windows users to apply those tweaks. While it is theoretically possible to apply them all manually, it often requires deeper knowledge of the operating system and research on the tweaks. Not to mention the time it...

Microsoft Releases Out Of Band Security Patch

Microsoft Releases Out Of Band Security Patch

Microsoft today released a new out of band security bulletin addressing a vulnerability in ASP.NET that affects all versions of the Microsoft .Net Framework when used on Windows Server operating systems, or on client systems that run a web server from their computer.

About the release: Microsoft...

Windows 7 Taskbar Items Pinner

Windows 7 Taskbar Items Pinner

Most Windows 7 users like the new taskbar of the operating system. Especially the option to pin programs to the taskbar can speed up work throughout the day. It is a tad easier to launch applications from there than the desktop, even more so if a full screen window is displayed on the screen. But the design has its flaws as well. It is for instance only possible to pin programs on the taskbar, not folders or files. The release of Internet Explorer 9 Beta made it possible to drag websites...

Add desktop icons to KDE and GNOME

Add desktop icons to KDE and GNOME

Although I am one to prefer a clutter-free, minimalist desktop, I know the majority of users prefer a much more standard, fast-access type of desktop. This means icons. Not the kind of icons you see on many users desktops (you know the ones, where there are so many icons it’s impossible to make sense of what is there), but icons that allow you to launch the applications you use most often. With KDE and GNOME there are different ways to add icons. With one desktop, the process is...

Windows 7 Starter And Home Basic Personalization Panel

Windows 7 Starter And Home Basic Personalization Panel

Microsoft has released different editions of the Windows 7 operating system, all with distinct capabilities and restrictions. Especially the Windows 7 Starter and Home Basic editions have been limited in this regard, with the result that core operating system features are not supported by them. It is for instance not possible to change the desktop wallpaper in Windows 7 Starter, or access other personalization options that the other Windows 7 editions offer. The portable software Personalization...

Change The Maximize Window Size

Change The Maximize Window Size

A maximized window takes over all the space on the computer desktop with the exception of the space occupied by the taskbar. That’s usually the intended usage and many users are happy with the way it works. Some users however, especially those that run monitors with large resolutions, and those who want to keep an area on the desktop visible all the time, may want to change the default behavior. The free software MaxMax can do that. It was originally developed to exclude the part...

Working with KDE desktop effects

Working with KDE desktop effects

So you’ve followed the latest series on KDE 4.5 (see Ghacks KDE 4.5 content) and you are now using the spectacular latest release from the KDE team. You want to use Compiz, but quickly realize that it is not necessary as KDE has it’s own built-in compositing effects. What you will find is that the built-in KDE compositing is not like Compiz  – but it is comparable and much easier to use. And the fact that it is built-in, ensures you will have less issues with integration. In...

Turn a Broken Down Laptop into a Desktop PC-inside-a-Keyboard [DIY]

Laptops, unfortunately, go through a lot of wear and tear, to the point of unusability. Hacker Bart, however, shows us how just because a laptop’s hinge, monitor, or keyboard is broken doesn’t mean it can’t still be a working, desktop computer.

The KDE 4.5 Semantic Desktop

The KDE 4.5 Semantic Desktop

My last article I spoke about the new KDE Activities features Search and Launch Containment Activity (see my article “Using the KDE 4.5 Search and Launch Containment Activity“). This is the first visible sign of KDE’s use of the Nepomuk Semantic Desktop. Nepomuk is a system that uses metadata throughout the desktop to aid in file search and peer to peer collaboration. So far the project has yet to reach its full potential (as it is quite new to the desktop). Strigi, on...

Tweek Auto Post is a free software for Windows that offers more than the standard “post a message to Twitter” functionality. All program features are controlled from the main interface. The Twitter username and password need to be entered in the beginning, before the...

Vista Switcher, Better Windows Alt-Tab Management

Vista Switcher, Better Windows Alt-Tab Management

I sometimes have the feeling that I have written about a specific software, but when I try to find the article the search ends up empty. Vista Switcher looks familiar to say the least, but a search did not reveal any hits on Ghacks (it does look like Alt Tab Thingy, a tab management software we have reviewed) The software is a alt-tab feature replacement for Windows. It replaces the standard Alt-Tab task switcher, and adds some cool functionality to it. For starters, pressing Alt-Tab after...
