Subject: How to get a newer version of Iceweasel (aka Firefox) on your Debian box

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I’m no Backports guru, though I’d like to become one. And squeeze-backports is still in its early stages and doesn’t yet have a newer version of Iceweasel, the renamed version of the Firefox web browser that ships with Debian.So how do you get Iceweasel/Firefox 3.6 or even 4.0 on your Debian Squeeze, Lenny, Wheezy/Testing or Sid/Unstable box?

Our friends at LXer provided Carla with a place to say what she needed to say about her situation. Personally, all I can say is that I consider her a good friend, and that I'm sorry she wasn't given a chance to say goodbye here, among the community she's been part of for years.

Dovecot 2 has new features, including security enhancements that administrators may want to use on CentOS. However, this version of Dovecot is not in the repository so you will need to install several additional packages.

Subject: How to post content to a WordPress blog from the command line

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Wordpress is a great publishing system, but managing it manually can be a very time consuming process. This is especially true when you want to upload lots of posts, or if you would like to write content in your preferred, full-blown text editor and then have it “magically” appear online. Eventually, I wrote this script around the WordPress-CLI utility and have already used it successfully to upload hundreds of posts to several of my WordPress websites.

Subject: Nautilus Elementary is Back! PPAs for Ubuntu 11.04 Natty, Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Updated

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Nautilus Elementary is perhaps one of the most talked about projects in the Linux world last year. Later in the year 2010 though, Nautilus Elementary project was discontinued and the developers decided to concentrate on an entirely new file browser project called Marlin, which will eventually find its place in upcoming Elementary OS project. But hold on, they have now decided to restart the Nautilus Elementary project and PPA's have been updated already for both Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick and Ubuntu 11.04 Natty.

Subject: Setting Up SFTP In A Hurry For File Uploads Using OpenSSH

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Secure file transfer gets too little attention, perhaps because it is too easy. For secure file transfer without the need of special programs or clients, nothing more is needed than to have the OpenSSH server installed and running. It has a built-in SFTP subsystem that is available to any account that can log in. In other words, for basic SFTP access, nothing needs to be done other than have an account accessible via SSH.

Last week following a dispute among several core FFmpeg developers, FFmpeg was forked as libav. The group remaining in the "FFmpeg" this week have now merged the ffmpeg-mt branch to their SVN trunk code-base. This is the code that's been worked on now for nearly three years to provide multi-threaded decoding support in FFmpeg...

Jumping in with the recent releases of the open-source Lightspark Flash Player is a new release of the Gnash Flash Player. The last Gnash release was version 0.8.8 back in August, but it's now been succeeded by a new point release. The previous release delivered on VA-API video acceleration support and "100% YouTube compatibility", but this new 0.8.9 release isn't quite as exciting for most users...

Recently, the distribution AriOS made it to DistroWatch's database. I had read Dedoimedo's review of AriOS earlier, where he said that it is a user-friendly and very pleasant distribution to use, and it is much better than its predecessor mFatOS. Intrigued, I decided to try it out.

In this short guide I will show you how you can install the new Mozilla Firefox 4.0 browser (released March 22, 2011) on an Ubuntu 10.10 desktop. Fortunately, there's a Launchpad PPA repository that has Firefox 4.0 .deb packages, so we can easily install it through Ubuntu's package manager.
