Linux Mint Debian Edition

Updated 03-14-2012 at 06:54 AM by campanula

I currently have two computers, both elderly: a Pentium 4 desktop and a Pentium M laptop, both with 1GB RAM. At the moment I'm using Linux Mint 10 (Gnome) on the desktop and Linux Mint LXDE 11 on the laptop.

Linux Mint 10 is coming up to the end of it's support, so I need to do something on this computer... Ideally I want to have something with longer term support, so I don't have to faff around setting everything up again until I get around to getting a new computer with decent...

this pointer - C++

Posted 03-13-2012 at 11:10 AM by TheIndependentAquarius

Quote:
The this pointer is a hidden pointer inside every class's non-static function which points to the class's particular object through which the concerned function is called.
Example:
Code:
class A
{
    private:
        int rollNumber;

    public:
	A (int rollNum)
	{
	    rollNumber = rollNum;
	}

	void setRollNumber (int rollNum)
	{
	    rollNumber = rollNum;
	}
};

Synergy. Control multiple computers with one keyboard and mouse

It's inevitable. Eventually you will end up with more than one computer. If you were smart enough to hold on to the old one, here is a way you can now use both, or 3 or 4, with one keyboard and mouse. This tutorial is done on Vectorlinux using the Quicksynergy front end, but Synergy itself will run on Mac, Windows as well as all Linux flavors. As usual, I've captured it all on video and put it up on Youtube.

Vectorlinux and the Arch Build System ??

Posted 03-10-2012 at 11:56 PM by stretchedthin

There is a bit of an easter-egg hidden within the latest release of Vectorlinux 7.0, and it is certainly something you never would expect in a Slackware based system. What is it? The Arch Build System. It's a big chunk of that huge selection of packages that Arch is famous for. This can be a big deal if you learn how to use it as it can give you access to thousands of additional software titles.
