Version 1.0 Author: Falko Timme <ft [at] falkotimme [dot] com> Follow me on Twitter Last edited 03/26/2012 This guide explains how to set up WebDAV with lighttpd on a Debian Squeeze server. WebDAV stands for Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning and is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol that allow users to directly edit files on the lighttpd server so that they do not need to be downloaded/uploaded via FTP. Of course, WebDAV can also be used to upload and download files. I do not issue any guarantee that this will work for you!
It is a joy to come across an application that works so well and combines the features and functionalities of several applications that it is difficult to not want to tell everybody about it. The application I am referring to, is called KLook. That is “look” prefixed with a “K.” If you have not played with the beta edition of ROSA Desktop 2012, you probably have no idea what this is all about. And if you are not familiar with ROSA Desktop, it is a Linux distribution derived from Mandriva Desktop. Like Chakra , it is solely uses the K Desktop Environment.
PPA’s: Silver Sword Or Golden Band-Aid So, you just had to go overboard with your PPA’s, didn’t you? The lure of bleeding-edge software was just to great for you to be able to stick with the tried-and-true software that was already available in your existing repositories. Not even backports could sate your need to run with the pack. PPA’s in Ubuntu are a great way to get software you would otherwise have to wait for.
This page aims to provide a gentle introduction to the world of CD and DVD writing from the command line under Linux. Unlike the approach of many such pages available today I aim to present a handful of "task oriented" examples with the idea that such concrete examples will convince most people that the true power of burning under Linux rests solidly on the command line rather than the graphical user interface. Four such examples are in place now: Making Copies of Your Favourite Linux Distro Using growisofs, dd and cdrecord to produce perfect copies of your favourite Linux distro to CD or DVD. Making Copies of Audio Cds Using cdrdao or cdda2wav and cdrecord to produce perfect copies of your audio CDs. Making Copies of Your Movie DVDs Using vobcopy, mkisofs and growisofs to make backup copies of your legally purchased movie DVDs.
Linux Mint 12 KDE is the latest release of Linux Mint KDE, a distribution based on Ubuntu Desktop.

Care to rethink your desktop user experience? It may be simpler than you think. Chances are you own more than one pointing device, but for years you've never been able to take full advantage of that hardware, because whenever you plugged in a second hardware mouse, it simply shared control of the same cursor. But with X, it doesn't have to: you can have any many distinct, independent cursors on screen as you have devices to control them. So grab a spare from the parts box in the closet, and get ready for the ol' one-two punch. What, you don't have a spare mouse?

Most of us work with multiple Linux machines these days, and we are used to hopping between them. However, there are times when you want to separate your Linux desktop experience from your physical desktop PC. You would like a Linux desktop that lives on a USB key that you can move freely among PCs. To explain this better, let me describe two problems I've recently addressed with a small, portable Linux distro: I don't always work from the same location.
Most commercial DVDs are encrypted with CSS (the Content Scrambling System), which attempts to restrict the software that can play a DVD. By installing the libdvdcss2 package you can play encrypted DVDs with: Legal Warning: Check with your local laws to make sure usage of libdvdcss2 would be legal in your area. Works for old releases that are no longer supported if you have repositories on Cd/Dvd or somewhere. So, anything from 9.04 onwards. The last LTS, 10.04, worked this way.
Shh! OpenSSH Secrets Here If you routinely use multiple computers, it can be a challenge to keep your data files organized and to manage multiple login IDs.
Installing from source Install the dependencies as outlined on the home page . For Debian-based distros, you can run the following as root: aptitude install python-qt4 python-pyparsing python-mutagen python-configobj python-musicbrainz2

Google Gadgets for Linux provides a platform for running desktop gadgets under Linux, catering to the unique needs of Linux users. It's compatible with the gadgets written for Google Desktop for Windows as well as the Universal Gadgets on iGoogle . Following Linux norms, this project is open-sourced under the Apache License. An important area where Google Desktop for Linux is different from its siblings on other operating systems is support for gadgets. Now, the Linux version of Google Gadgets will extend the gadgets platform to Linux users. By enabling cross-platform gadgets, a large library of existing gadgets are immediately available to Linux users.
Just because you don't have a lot of money to spare doesn't mean you can't build a capable—and highly upgradable—gaming desktop. With the economy still struggling, personal budgeting remains vital. Even if you’re not in any financial trouble yourself (and if that’s the case, congratulations) you’re probably keeping a close eye on your bank account to reassure yourself that you’re secure should things take a turn for the worse. So if you want a new computer, particularly one for something relatively frivolous like playing games, chances are you want to make every penny count. And if you really want to restrict the number of pennies you spend, you may feel that you don’t have many choices.
