Subject: New Features in digiKam 2.0: Versioning

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

When tweaking photos in digiKam, you probably would want to keep the originals intact. And this is where the Versioning feature can come in rather handy. It allows you to save each edited version of an original photo as a separate image complete with a list of all applied actions.

Subject: A Research Project For KDE's KWin On Wayland

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

Martin Gräßlin has been making some very interesting advancements to KWin in the past year or so, after having issues with open-source Mesa drivers, this German developer has made this compositing window manager for the KDE Plasma desktop run on OpenGL ES 2.0 and even optional support for OpenGL 3.x. He wouldn't mind some help though, so this summer for KDE's involvement in Google's Summer of Code he has proposed three fairly interesting projects, two of which benefit KWin on Wayland.

More cores mean better performance, right? That's not what Amdahl says. Learn one of the foundations of parallel computing in "Amdahl's Law." Prepare yourself for math. And lawn mowing.

Subject: Set Up OpenVPN Server With Authentication Against OpenLDAP On Debian 6.0 (Squeeze)

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

OpenVPN, or Open Virtual Private Network, is a tool for creating networking "tunnels" between and among groups of computers that are not on the same local network. This is useful if you have services on a local network and need to access them remotely but don't want these services to be publicly accessible. By integrating with OpenSSL, OpenVPN can encrypt all VPN traffic to provide a secure connection between machines.

Subject: Get Hands-on With Tmux

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

Last week I introduced tmux, a handy "terminal multiplexer." This week, we'll take a look at basic tmux usage and configuration. To start tmux, just run tmux or tmux new-session if you're feeling verbose. Then you'll have a session with one window and your usual login shell. To add a second window, run Ctrl-b c. (Same thing if you want a third, fourth, and so on.)

Subject: Java daddy borged by Google

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

James Gosling, the father of Java, has joined Google – despite his previous criticism of the company's Java-happy Android operating system. Gosling announced his new job with a post to his personal blog entitled "Next step on the road", but did not provide specifics. "Through some odd twists in the road over the past year, and a tardis encountered along the way, I find myself starting employment at Google today. One of the toughest things about life is making choices. I had a hard time saying 'no' to a bunch of other excellent possibilities. I find it odd that this time I’m taking the road more travelled by, but it looks like interesting fun with huge leverage," he wrote

Subject: How to Sell Linux to Schools

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

I looked at three different ways how to popularize Linux and make it more mainstream as well as a household name. In the post I will look specifically at how I would sell Linux to schools, examining all the aspects of such a deployment and how I would do it and what distro and software I would use.

Subject: Server over desktop

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

I’ve been planning to build a computer for at least a year. I started with the idea of a mini-ITX motherboard and case to produce a small, low-power desktop, to which I’d hook up a keyboard, mouse and monitor and use as a traditional desktop computer. However, what I need (and/or want) is a server. I’m thinking principally of a file server-slash-backup server. Maybe a light-duty web server.

Subject: Five Best Linux Office Tools

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

The business office is where the Linux desktop should reign. Why? Linux is a reliable, stable, secure solution that would have any business user working day-in and day-out without fail. With an unheard of resistance to viruses, trojans, and worms, the office user enjoying the Linux desktop would have no concerns about down time as does the average Windows user. But what tools are there available for the usual office worker? Plenty!

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

A lot of people have recommended the SugarSync file-synchronization service as an alternative to Dropbox. SugarSync offers 5 GB for free vs. 2 GB for Dropbox and has more flexible pricing when you want more storage. The big problem with SugarSync, for me anyway: No Linux client.

Subject: Bohdi Linux sticks with design principles

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

After your first fifty distribution reviews, a certain ennui creeps in. Most have the same selection of software, and GNOME or KDE for a desktop, and, if they are new, are derived from Ubuntu. Under these circumstances, features worth writing about tend to be rare. That is why Bohdi Linux has been attracting attention from reviewers -- because it has actually done a few things differently.
