A long time ago I stopped using Java programs because of the proprietary aspect. But I recently tried out Iced Tea on my Gentoo box and it seems to work pretty well, at least with one program, Planet M.U.L.E:

Planet M.U.L.E. is a free clone of a old economics video game, but with much better graphics. It is rather addicting, but somewhat frustrating if you don't take the time to read the how-to-play guide, which explains in detail all the...

KDE4 Tablets on the way

Although,I still prefer a computer anyday over a "Tablet" I am so excited. My favorite desktop Environment KDE is coming now to the Tablet world. I may reconsider how limited, walled garden, d*mbed down tablets really are in my views. Here is one link but I'm sure one can find if they have a will on own time to more. here: http://makeplaylive.com/. Ok! and here: http://www.mobilelinuxnews.com/2012/...n-coming-soon/ The Vivaldi "Tablet"...

In preparation for an anniversary

Posted 10-16-2012 at 05:20 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

parallel port with cups (LPT)

Posted 10-16-2012 at 05:07 AM by ted_chou12

Hi, I am tired of USB port so I went ahead and tried to use a parallel port to connect my printer:
First check if the lp mod is added:
Code:
lsmod | grep par
if not:
Code:
parport_pc 22292 1
parport 29012 2 parport_pc,lp
Then do:
Code:
modprobe lp
Make sure you add this to /etc/rc.d/rc.local, to ensure the code runs everytime during boot.
Now check again:
Code:
lsmod | grep par
"lp" should now already be displayed....
