How To Fix Aero Issues In Windows 7

How To Fix Aero Issues In Windows 7

I received an error message that Aero was not enabled the first time I tried to install the custom Mac OS X theme for Windows 7. I remembered that I was running Aero Basic only, and assumed that the theme could only be installed properly if full Aero was enabled. After switching to full Aero with a right-click on Personalize and the selection of an Aero theme in the themes manager, I received the same error message again.Something was not working properly, which made the theme installer...

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...

Using Bitlocker in Windows (Best Practice Guide)

Using Bitlocker in Windows (Best Practice Guide)

If you use a laptop for work, or it you carry important or sensitive data with you then it should be encrypted.  Put simply the repercussions of not using encryption are far too serious to imagine with substantial fines being probably the least significant to a loss of customer and market confidence being the worst.  For a small company though the fines for not complying properly with data protection regulations and leaving information “in the open” can shut a company down. ...

4 Options To Save Bandwidth, Speed Up Web Browsing

4 Options To Save Bandwidth, Speed Up Web Browsing

There are certain situations where it may make sense to save as much bandwidth as possible while connected to the Internet. The most obvious is if you are limited to a certain amount of bandwidth per month, after which you are either cut off from the Internet or have to pay extra fees for all additional traffic that you have caused in a billing period.A second if your Internet connection is not the fastest, to cut down on the time it takes before websites are completely loaded on the computer.This...

Limit The Upload Bandwidth Of Windows Programs

Limit The Upload Bandwidth Of Windows Programs

I noticed yesterday that the popular live streaming software Sopcast was using all of my computer’s upload bandwidth. The program uses P2P technologies to distribute the live stream to all connected users, just like the newly announced Bittorrent Live does.Using all of my computer’s upload speed, 10 Mbit in total, put a lot of strain on other programs that used the Internet connection (I discovered this with the help of Netspeed Monitor). This can cause problems if you share...

A walk around the GNOME desktop

A walk around the GNOME desktop

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

Queue music into Rhythmbox from Nautilus

Queue music into Rhythmbox from Nautilus

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

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...

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...

Compress Folders, Files In Windows To Save Storage Space

Compress Folders, Files In Windows To Save Storage Space

File compression support is one of the features of the NTFS file system that often gets overlooked by Windows users. Its main purpose is to reduce the storage requirements of files on devices that use the NTFS file system. Compression is however handled different from archivers like 7-Zip, WinZip or WinRar, as the compressed files appear like before in the operating system (meaning there is not extension change to indicate a compressed files). This ensures that the files can be used normally...

How To Configure System Wide Website Shortcuts In Windows

How To Configure System Wide Website Shortcuts In Windows

Many Windows users do not know that the operating system offers a flexible shortcut system to start programs but also open websites directly with the keyboard. Those who do often make use of those shortcuts to improve their workflow. One option that may come in handy is the configuration of website shortcuts, to launch websites by pressing a key – or keys – on the keyboard. Some may know that functionality if their keyboard supports special characters that can be configured...

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...

Even more GNOME keyboard shortcuts

Even more GNOME keyboard shortcuts

Well all strive to make our desktop as efficient as possible. Whether you’re a coder who wants nothing more than to never remove your fingers from the keyboard, or if you’re a writer who wants to use the mouse only when necessary, there are so many ways to make this happen. One of the easiest ways is to use keyboard shortcuts. I’ve already touched on this subject in my article “Handy GNOME keyboard shortcuts” and I’ve demonstrated how to create custom...

Install KDE on Fedora 13

Install KDE on Fedora 13

If you downloaded and installed Fedora 13,  most likely you are using the GNOME desktop. If you’ve been reading me here on Ghacks long enough then you know I am fairly partial to the GNOME desktop. That doesn’t mean I feel KDE should get the cold shoulder. In fact, the latest iterations of KDE have made AMAZING strides in reaching (and nearly surpassing) GNOME in stability and speed. Because of this I have started a new “push” to cover the KDE desktop. But in...

Windows Explorer in Windows 7 contains a left sidebar that displays links to favorites, drives and libraries. This section can be expanded (by right-clicking a blank spot in the sidebar and selecting “Show all folders”) to include User directories, control panel and recycle bin as well. The sidebar has its purposes. It can be used to quickly navigate to any folder on the computer, or to access folder contents quickly by double-clicking the listed folders. windows explorer...
