ASUS rilancia la sfida a Windows con Ubuntu

ASUS rilancia la sfida a Windows con Ubuntu

ASUS rilancia la sfida a Windows con Ubuntu Windows è sicuramente il sistema operativo più diffuso sui personal computer, mentre quello che normalmente viene descritto come il suo più diretto rivale, vale a dire Linux, in realtà non si trova al secondo posto, solidamente nelle mani di Apple e del suo OS X, bensì dietro a quest’ultimo. Nel corso della storia dell’informatica sono stati diversi i brand che hanno cercato di favorire un’alternativa al prodotto...

Evo 2, la console Android che sfida PlayStation, Xbox360 e Wii

Evo 2, la console Android che sfida PlayStation, Xbox360 e Wii Progetto ambizioso, quello della console EVO che, basata su sistema operativo Linux, prometteva, secondo le affermazioni del suo produttore, Envizions, di unificare il mondo dei PC e delle console, portando l’hardware del primo nello chassis della seconda per lanciare un’offensiva in grande stile ai nomi storici del settore: PlayStation, Xbox e Wii. I risultati ottenuti, pur se lungamente inferiori alle attese, non...

4chan Downloader Saves All Thread Images Automatically

4chan Downloader Saves All Thread Images Automatically

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

GlobalScale Dream Plug, il PC grande come una presa multipla

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); I mini o microPC non sono certo una novità; già in un passato nemmeno troppo recente sono più  volte apparsi prodotti, talvolta semi-artigianali, in altre occasioni industrializzati a tutti gli effetti, che erano in sostanza veri e propri computer in miniatura sui quali veniva normalmente eseguita una distribuzione Linux ad hoc. In realtà, se vogliamo un qualsiasi modem/router che soggiorna nelle nostre case e...

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...

Turn a Pogoplug into a Fully-Featured Linux Web Server [Video]

Get back CTRL-ALT-Backspace in Fedora and Ubuntu

Get back CTRL-ALT-Backspace in Fedora and Ubuntu

Being an old-school Linux user, one of the things that bothers me is that in some of the new distributions the CTRL-ALT-Backspace key combination (the combination that would usually kill and restart the X server) has been disabled. This key combination was always helpful when/if a program seemed to take over X Windows and keep you from getting it back. It doesn’t happen often, but I have found that no matter how stable the distribution, some rogue app is going to do this now and...

See what images are being viewed on your network with driftnet

See what images are being viewed on your network with driftnet

I want to preface this article by saying I am not, in any way advocating spying on your users. With that said, there are times (and reasons) why you might need to see what images are being viewed on your network. Whether it be an end user who is viewing content that goes against specific company policies or, worse, against the law. When this happens, you might have need or cause to see just what is being viewed from your LAN. When this is the case there is a handy tool for that called...

View websites offline with WebHTTrack

View websites offline with WebHTTrack

There are reasons why you would want to view a web site off line. Say, for example, you know you are on the go and do not always have access to a network connection, yet you want to be up to date on the latest news. Or you are a developer working on a site and need to be able to make changes, or check a web site for bugs or broken links.  Or maybe you are trying to develop a new site and you want to loosely base your new site (all the while crediting the original site of course) on...

CUPP Hybrid PC: due computer in uno

CUPP Hybrid PC: due computer in uno

La possibilità di avere, su un unico PC, due architetture differenti per poter eseguire sistemi operativi ovviamente incompatibili tra loro è una pratica le cui origini si perdono nella notte dei tempi e che hanno forse come esempio più significativo le Janus board per Amiga, dove una macchina x86, con processore, BIOS e memoria veniva integrata su una scheda di espansione interna e permetteva di avere a disposizione anche DOS e Windows su una macchina che, avendo una CPU Motorola,...

Get organized with Getting Things GNOME

Get organized with Getting Things GNOME

Getting organized is, for some, a constant struggle. The PC is supposed to help us…does it? For some it does. For some it does not. For those that have trouble getting organized on the PC, a special tool is some times necessary. Getting Things GNOME is a GNOME tool that takes the task list to the next level. GTG allows for tag-able task, add sub tasks, includes a plugin systems (with plenty of included plugins),  and more. And in this Ghacks.net article, I am going to show...

vifm: Fast, lightweight, old school file manager

vifm: Fast, lightweight, old school file manager

Recently I have been covering some of the lighter weight file managers for the Linux operating system. We’ve seen PCMan File Manager and emelFM2 covered recently. I’ve also touched on Thunar numerous times. All of these file managers have two things in common: They are fast and they have GUIs. Today’s file manager shares the speed, but not the GUI. This file manager is vifm. If you know your Linux you can probably assume the “vi” is associated with one of...

Firefox 4 Beta 5 Now Available with Default Hardware Acceleration, Menu Redesign [Updates]

Firefox 4 Beta 5 Now Available with Default Hardware Acceleration, Menu Redesign [Updates]

Windows/Mac/Linux: Firefox 4 Beta 5 is out tonight, and it firms up a few things that have been slowly taking shape in previous betas of the browser. Most significantly, it enables by default the (Windows-only) hardware acceleration that had been available through a deep settings switch previously. New to the build, however, are a robust audio API (demonstrated at YouTube), a return to two-column menus, this time with multiple shades, and a new feature,...

Adding LDAP entries from the command line

Adding LDAP entries from the command line

Okay, so we’ve been dealing with LDAP a bit here on Ghacks, but mostly we’ve look at GUI tools (check out LDAP content on Ghacks). All of the GUI tools are good, but nothing beats the command line for pure control and power. And what’s best, once you have LDAP installed, you have all the tools necessary to manage your LDAP data! There’s really no need for further installation. So, yeah…LDAP comes with it’s own set of management tools and, in this article,...

KDE 4.5 Window tiling

KDE 4.5 Window tiling

You’ve probably seen the advertisements for Windows 7 and the tiling windows feature. Believe it or not the very first tiling window manager was Siemens’s RTL (created in 1988). After that came a UNIX version called tAP (The Andrew Project) for the X Windowing System. Fast-forward to now and Microsoft claims to have innovated a new feature. Soon after that KDE refines the same feature and ads it into 4.4. Of course 4.4 was still suffering from numerous bugs. Fast-forward a...

Sync your Evolution contacts with UbuntuOne

Sync your Evolution contacts with UbuntuOne

How many machines do you have? How many contacts do you have? How many machines do you try to keep your contacts in sync on? There are a lot of ways to do this. You could copy those contacts on a flash drive and move them back and forth, making sure you add the new ones when you make any changes. But that is far more complicated than it need be. OR you can use a contact syncing tool to make this process automatic. One such tool for Ubuntu Linux is Ubuntu One. UbuntuOne is not just a music...
