Is Gnash Finally Useful?

Posted 11-01-2012 at 07:47 AM by scorpioofthewoods

I installed Debian Sid the other day and got things set up the way I like it, mostly. Mostly because lately I am slow to install proprietary software until I need it. I like to see how long I can go on open source software before it becomes necessary to install something like flash.

After the install I go to YouTube and click on a video. It starts playing, and play really well. I then realize I have not yet installed flash. I right click on the video to see if it is using html5. No,...

Distro Hopping

Posted 10-31-2012 at 11:50 AM by scorpioofthewoods

We all do it at one time or another. At some point(s) the urge hits you for whatever reason to try another distro. So lately I have been distro hopping.

I was happily using Debian Sid some time ago for quite awhile. But then my time became limited and things got a little crazy when Gnome 3 started rolling in. So at that time I switched to Ubuntu. Ubuntu is great when you don't have much time to play with your OS and just want things to work (for the most part). I have used it for...

Better filtered mail notifications

This includes modifying paths within scripts for your own environment. This is one of those hack together one job scripts.

Changing the default keyboard on Ubuntu 12.04 Live CD

Posted 10-30-2012 at 08:07 AM by avarus (Tim's Bio-Linux tips)

Hi,

This isn't a user tip - as you can probably see I didn't do very well keeping up on those. Instead here's a rather technical and long-winded commentary about what is going on regarding setting the default keyboard on the Ubuntu 12.04 Live CD, from a British perspective. This is important to me because I use the customised Bio-Linux Live USB stick image for teaching purposes, and I use it in UK academic labs. If the first thing I have to do in each course is to get the students...

Running a free Gentoo

Posted 10-29-2012 at 04:52 PM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)

Gentoo is overall a great distribution, but unfortunately it is not dedicated to free software with the same determination as distributions like Trisquel and gNewSense. If you have been running Gentoo for a while, but are not familiar with this issue, you may be surprise to learn how much non-free software is in your system, from application software to the kernel.

The offset to this, however, is that built-in Gentoo mechanisms make it very easy to change this configuration, so as...
