Subject: GanttProject Packs Prodigious Planning Power

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

While I've never been giddy with praise over a project-planning application, GanttProject has enough going for it for me to consider using as a regular go-to planning tool. Its user interface is structured clearly so it is easy to understand. GanttProject lets you break down a project into a tree of tasks and assign available human resources to work on each.

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

If its dimensions were more compact, you could call it the latest Android tablet, but at 21.5 inches, the FT103 SmartDisplay from KOUZIRO Corporation of Japan does not readily fit into that popular mobile device category, even though it has all the other trappings of one.

Subject: Using the Synaptic Package Manager to Clone Installed Software to Another Computer

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

The GNU/Linux ecosystem is blessed with many tools to clone a hard drive image which can be used to reinstall your Debian-based distro in an emergency or duplicate on another machine, but sometimes you might want to do a clean install of Ubuntu on another machine and then add in the extra software you installed in the original distro. For that you need a combination of Synaptic, the GUI frontend for apt-get and a little command line magic.

Subject: How To Install RuneScape Linux Game Client In Ubuntu

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

RuneScape is a fantasy massively multiplayer online role-playing (MMORPG) web based online game. The game can run in a browser, but there are also downloadable clients for Windows and Mac, but not for Linux. However, there is an unofficial Linux port of the Windows RuneScape client (the game launcher is opensource, the client file jagexappletviewer.jar is closed source, but it's allowed to be used in ports if anyone decided to make one) which includes fixes and performance tweaks along with working language settings.

Subject: KDE Announces 4.9 RC2

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

Today KDE released the second release candidate for its Workspaces, Applications, and Development Platform. With API, dependency and feature freezes in place, the KDE team's focus is now on fixing bugs and other polishing. Highlights of 4.9 will include: Qt Quick in Plasma Workspaces. Qt Quick continues to make its way into the Plasma Workspaces. The Qt Quick Plasma components, which were introduced with 4.8, mature further. Additional integration of various KDE APIs was added through new modules. More parts of Plasma Desktop have been ported to QML. While preserving their functionality, the Qt Quick replacements of common Plasmoids are more attractive, easier to enhance and extend and behave better on touchscreens. The Dolphin file manager has been improved in its display and sorting and searching based on metadata. Files can now be renamed inline, giving a smoother user experience. Deeper integration of Activities for files, windows and other resources. It is now easier for users to associate files and windows with an Activity, and enjoy better Workspace organization. Folderview can now show files related to an Activity, making it easier to organize files into meaningful contexts. Many performance improvements and bugfixes improve the overall user experience, making KDE Applications and Workspaces more productive and fun to use than ever before. More improvements can be found in the 4.9 Feature Plan. There are many changes, so 4.9 needs a good testing in order to maintain and improve quality and to deliver an exceptional user experience.read more
