that is awesome but dwm is better so do that instead
The only thing i can't find is virtual desktops, i am quite used to it in Ubuntu so i am a bit dissapointed.
Oh and if somebody is used to KDE it would be great if you could give me some tips for making it look good.
I love when my desktop is sorted and smexy
And i also just found out CTRL + F8.
Ubuntu 12.04 is looking to be pretty awesome.
This is the thing about Open Source software, it's all a matter of opinion. At least, for the most part.
Anyway, just unlock widges, and open up the Configuration thing for your panel (Click the cashew on the panel), click Add Widget, and put a Pager on your panel.
You can also use the scroll wheel on the wallpaper to switch desktops.
So my IT internship gave me a laptop to use and they said I could dual boot linux if I wanted. So I was going to download fedora than I saw that they offer the distro with different interfaces straight out of install, just thought that was really awesome. Props to fedora.
Is there a way to get multi-touch working? I've found the whole project that tries to enable that but no files/repositories containing any of the required driver stuff...
A couple years ago when I got my EeePC, I could do two finger scrolling on the touchpad.
Unless you're talking about Multi-pointer X (i.e. having multiple pointers on screen), then I don't know how to set that up.
So i got Ubuntu on my laptop.
I have no password required to login to my administrator account but i need a password for everything "Authentication"...
Is there anyway to make it other way around, password to login but no authentication password?
Again, this is not the most secure setup, and malicious software (or even your own ignorance or carelessness) could seriously cripple your system. I myself have sudo configured not to prompt for a password, but I'm willing to take the risk for the minor convenience.
I really enjoy using KDE.
I would recommend it, even tho' i am not a Linux expert.
I have 2 questions.
When i switch workspace with KDE 4.8 my windows are still there.
Example: I have Facepunch open i browser, then i switch workspace but my browser is still there, just minimized.
Can it be changed?
And is there a code for installing skype? Can't locate it anywhere. (terminal)
Even tho' i recommend it i don't know everything about it.
I am still fiddling with it a lot!
Skype might not be in the repository, you might need to either add a PPA or get the deb from skype's site.
There is no .deb from skype's site.
The only 2 things i can choose from is "dynamic" or "static" actually.
I did it with my Ubuntu 11.10, worked smoothly.
http://www.skype.com/intl/en/get-sky...omputer/linux/ lists releases for Fedora, Ubuntu, Debian and OpenSUSE, plus the dynamic and static ones.
2012, Year of the Linux on anything but the desktop?
I've been learning Ruby for the past 3 days. Do you guys think it's a good replacement for bash scripting?
Could you elaborate as to why? And maybe give a suggestion.
Incoming shitstorm Arch users:
Xorg 1.12 is in testing and is gonna be moved to extra very soon. God help you if you run fglrx.
I'm attempting to install Arch Linux on my old desktop. I've hit a problem when installing packages. The installation window starts of fine with a stream of "downloading [filename]..." messages. Then;
error: segmentation fault
Internal pacman error: Segmentation fault.
and 9 lines of;
error: error writing to file '/mnt/var/cache/pacman/pkg/vi-1:050325-2-i686.pkg.tar.xz.part': Invalid argument.
I'm not sure what other relevant informations I should provide, request it and I'll edit it into the post. How would I go about making this not happen?
Anybody know what wicd-client is using to display widgets?
I'm having trouble with getting a network manager to work on openbox, I've tried nm-applet but even when I execute it via terminal I get errors, any ideas?
No... Well it's kind of hard to troubleshoot a problem when you have to imagine the error messages.
Basically I use Python for more programmy things, and Bash for shell stuff.
From what I've seen from Ruby it seems like it will do the job. I want a language that will let me get things done quickly.
For example, a few weeks back I wrote a script to test the speed of drupal (opensource CMS). By test, of course, I mean spam the living shit out of it to see how well it would handle having 1000-2000 posts. I used bash and cURL. It worked pretty well, but bash always seemed to get in my way.
I think that ruby will work for me. I have a script that I need to do for work. I'll report on how well ruby did the job.
if you really must have a bash replacement use either zsh or python. I think python would be better for you since you don't like bash's if statements and zsh uses the same syntax
