How To Send & Receive Files on Blackberry [BB<->Phone; BB<->PC]

Hi,

I know you might wonder why I'm posting this here. But I have been trying to do this for some hours and finally got it. But before then, I searched the web and could not find an easier way to send all kinds of files (texts, media, even unknown files). I'm running Ubuntu 11.04, using Blueman 1.21-4 bluetooth manager and I did this with a BB Curve 8520 (but this method will surely work for any bluetooth software, device, phone or PC).

In Linux, after setting up &...

Fixing the annoying firefox' associations issue once and for all

Posted 08-19-2011 at 04:49 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Probably affects all gecko-derived browsers, like iceape, kazehakase, epiphany, namoroka, whatever. May be exclusively a KDE-derived problem though, I don't know.

Sometimes, for some reason, the system decides that you probably want to open downloaded PDFs, from iceweasel's/firefox' downloads window, with krita or gimp, programs that won't open PDFs at all. It's really confusing because you even have a correct, pdf-reader application set as default in other parts of the system (file...

Using Slackware's Package Management

Posted 08-19-2011 at 09:50 AM by psionl0

Of course, if you no longer need the package then you can run removepkg and all of the package's files (not shared by other...

Gaming in Linux; slackware 13.37

Posted 08-17-2011 at 11:23 AM by linuxpokernut

Back in 2008, I started playing Eve Online. Its one hell of a game, some call it "spreadsheets online" because you wind up needing a spreadsheet to play. It's the worlds largest single shard game server. And back in December of '08, it had a linux client.

It was not a true stand alone client, but it was a Cedega crossover. When you installed it it installed the Cedega engine with just what you need to play. Back then the game had 2 graphics options, "classic" and...
