Subject: How to move from Windows to Linux?

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

[i]This Q&A is part of a biweekly series of posts highlighting common questions encountered by technophiles and answered by users at Stack Exchange, a free, community-powered network of 80+ Q&A sites.[/i]rincewind asks:I need to reconcile these 2 facts: 1. I don't feel comfortable working on Linux; 2. I need to develop software for Linux. Some background: I have 10+ years of programming experience on Windows (almost exclusively C/C++, but some .NET as well), I was a user of FreeBSD at home for about 3 years or so (then had to go back to Windows), and I've never had much luck with Linux. And now I have to develop software for Linux. I need a plan.

Subject: Creating Encrypted FTP Backups With duplicity And duply On Debian Squeeze

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

When you rent a dedicated server nowadays, almost all providers give you FTP backup space for your server on one of the provider's backup systems. This tutorial shows how you can use duplicity and duply to create encrypted backups on the provider's remote backup server over FTP. duply is a duplicity wrapper script that allows us to use duplicity without interaction (i.e., you do not have to type in any passwords).

Subject: Essential Firefox Extensions

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

Despite developing a feature-laden Web browser, the Firefox team recognised at an early stage that individuals have different priorities and requirements. Extensions offer the means for software to be tailored accordingly to these needs. One of the reasons why Firefox has been so successful is because of extensions.

Subject: Use "cat" to merge multiple files

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

The "cat" command is mostly used for viewing files but not many people know that the original purpose of this command is for merging files together ("cat" is the abbreviation of "catenate", which means " to connect things together").

Recently, LXer [url=http://www.linuxlinks.com/article/20120707094314958/FirefoxExtensions.html] carried a story[/url] that highlighted several Firefox extensions that are a "must have" for any browsing experience. While there were a few in that list that I find newly-useful, it was lacking in some basic extensions that make life ever-so-much-easier for computer commandos.

There has been a long standing belief (or perhaps more accurately, fear), that developers who chose to release the source code for their software under a free and open license can’t turn their project into a viable source of income.

Subject: KDE: Rely on Qt, protect Qt's freedom, contribute to it

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

The KDE community is one of the largest and most influential Free Software communities world-wide with thousands of volunteer contributors and countless users. Most of the software written by KDE is based on the Qt toolkit. With the recent strategy changes within Nokia—the largest contributor to Qt, there is uncertainty about the future of Qt that concerns KDE. This is the position of the KDE community regarding the future of Qt: KDE will continue to rely on Qt and cooperate with the Qt copyright owners and contributors.Using the strong ties between both communities and existing formal agreements, KDE will protect the freedom of Qt and KDE where necessary.Continuing the KDE 5 frameworks development process that has already begun, KDE will help improve Qt and contribute to it.read more
