Is Tablet-Creep in Operating Systems a Bad Thing and Must we Accept it?

Is Tablet-Creep in Operating Systems a Bad Thing and Must we Accept it?

Like it or not, it would appear that the tablet-ification of our desktop operating systems is inevitable.  Setting aside the new Metro interface that will take the main focus of Windows 8, Apple are slowly creeping more tablet features into OS X and even Canonical are getting in on the act with their Unity interface for Ubuntu and their removal of drop-down menus.  So is tablet-creep a bad thing, and need we accept it?With Windows 8 out next week in beta we will finally get the answers...

Add titles to OpenShot Video Editor projects

Add titles to OpenShot Video Editor projects

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

UBUNTU LIVE COME MODIFICARE IL REGISTRO

UBUNTU LIVE COME MODIFICARE IL REGISTRO

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); La modifica del registro di un sistema che non si avvia può essere fatta con dei cd autoavvianti del tipo UBCD4WIN  che ci consente di agire direttamente sul registro. Ora è anche possibile con una distro di Linux ossia Ubuntu Live. Installando l’utility chntpw è possibile sfruttare la distro Linux di Canonical per modificare il registro di Windows senza effettuare l’accesso al sistema Microsoft.   ...

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...

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...

Backup your Linux desktop with Simple Backup

Backup your Linux desktop with Simple Backup

There are tons of possible backup solutions for the Linux desktop (and/or server). I have covered a number of possible solutions here on Ghacks. One of my favorite (and the one I use most often) is Luckybackup (see my article “Luckybackup: Linux backup made easy“), but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of really good solutions. One of these solutions (and one that really lives up to its name) is Simple Backup (or sbackup). This backup tool offers very similar...

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...

DUAL BOOT WINDOWS 7 UBUNTU DISINSTALLARLO E RICREARE L’MBR PER L’AVVIO

DUAL BOOT WINDOWS 7 UBUNTU DISINSTALLARLO E RICREARE L’MBR PER L’AVVIO

Ubuntu sovrascrive l’mbr di windows con il suo Grub, se un domani volessi tornare indietro con il solo cd  non ci riuscirei e quindi non potrei riutilizzare il sistema operativo di partezza che era WINDOWS 7, prima della creazione del dual boot. Possiamo effettuare una serie di passaggi sempre controllando dopo aver verificato che abbia funzionato, i passaggi andranno fatti in sequenza: Inserire il dvd del sistema operativo WINDOWS 7 oppure il cd di RIPRISTINO ed arrivare...

100 % free Linux distributions

100 % free Linux distributions

On this, July 4, 2010, the day the United States celebrates the signing of the Declaration of Independence, I thought I would take a moment to celebrate that same day with a toast to those Linux distributions that shirk all non-free software. This means EVERYTHING on these distributions is protected under, at least, the GPL. There aren’t tons of these distributions and some of them are threatened, daily, to disappear from lack of support. So it is my honor to hopefully introduce...

DUAL BOOT WINDOWS VISTA ELIMINARE UBUNTU E GRUB

DUAL BOOT WINDOWS VISTA ELIMINARE UBUNTU E GRUB

In una situazione come questa la cosa migliore è prima eliminare Grub e poi togliere Ubuntu, questo per poter utilizzare sempre un sistema operativo che, altrimenti, potrebbe non avviarsi: 1°METODICA Per utilizzare questo metodo serve il DVD di Vista che va inserito nel lettore/masterizzatore, dopo aver messo la periferica davanti al nostro disco con l’installazione. Dopo le varie fasi iniziali con il caricamento dei files e la scelta della lingua/tastiera etc. nelle finestra...

Upgrading from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.4

Upgrading from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.4

I will preface this by saying, I always suggest a clean installation. But for those of you who’d prefer to at least first attempt an upgrade, the technology is already in place for you to do so. Upgrading Ubuntu is not a terribly challenging task. It can be, depending up your network speed and machine, time consuming. In most cases a LOT of files have to be upgraded. And, as with ANY upgrade of this nature, you must backup your files. With a major upgrade there is always a chance...

Download music from Amazon with clamz

Download music from Amazon with clamz

Lately I have been going on and on about the Ubuntu Music Store. So much so, it would seem I have forgotten the other music store that is friends to Linux. Not so. I am still a fan of the Amazon MP3 store and last night I took the opportunity to purchase something. I was looking for the soundtrack to my favorite TV show (Fringe) on the Ubuntu Music Store when I quickly realized they didn’t have it. So I opted to check out the next best thing – Amazon.com. Well they had it…BUT…the...

Join a Ubuntu machine to a Windows domain

Join a Ubuntu machine to a Windows domain

I had been hoping to accomplish this for some time now. At work we work under a Windows domain and I have a Ubuntu test machine that I have been hoping to join to that domain. Finally, thanks to Likewise-Open5, it happened. And, believe it or not, it’s not all that difficult. Oh sure you can use Samba to take this task on, but you better be prepared for some serious configuration and work. With Likewise-Open5 that job is made significantly easier. Now I understand that with the upcoming...

Ubuntu One Music Store has arrived

Ubuntu One Music Store has arrived

This morning I woke up to write an article for Ghacks. I was searching around for inspiration while I was updating my Ubuntu 10.4 beta install. Near the end of the update I thought “Let’s just check to see the status of the Ubuntu One Music Store”. So I fired up Rhythmbox and, to my surprise, there it was…all ready for me to start shopping! So…with that said, in this article I am going to introduce you to the Ubuntu One Music Store and how it works. It’s...

A few Ubuntu “power user” tips

A few Ubuntu “power user” tips

I thought I would start off the month with a collection of “power user” tips I have collected over the years. Some of these are real gems, some of them are just “been there, done that”. But all of them are useful. So, without further adieu, let’s get to the tippage! Global keyboard shortcuts We all know that keeping your fingers on the keyboard makes for much more efficient computing. But did you know you can create global keyboard shortcuts for GNOME? This...

Ubuntu 10.4: My first impressions

Ubuntu 10.4: My first impressions

I couple of months ago I covered what was to be expected in the upcoming release of Ubuntu (Lucid Lynx – 10.4). This release will happen in April 2010 and is much anticipated by users across the globe. I have installed the Alpha of 10.4 and have been using it for a while now. It is time to offer up my impressions of what is to come to those wacky Ubuntu fan boys and girls. At first blush What I was really surprised about was the lack of the new look. I had reported that a team of...

Quick and easy pop or imap server with Dovecot

Quick and easy pop or imap server with Dovecot

Picking up where we left off a while ago, let’s add yet another feature to our Ubuntu server. We’ve already looked at using Postfix with multiple topics (see Postfix on Ghacks). But we never discussed a means to deliver the mail from the server to the client. That will now change. Linux has multiple ways to deliver email to clients. One of the easiest (as well as most flexible) means is via Dovecot. Dovecot is an open source IMAP/POP server that runs on either Linux or UNIX...
