Posted 05-23-2011 at 09:25 PM by sumeet inani

I have 'vim-gnome' installed
First select any file .
In properties > openwith tab
select GVim Text editor
Now I wanted that : After a file has been opened the other text file should be in new tab in same window

Code:
Exec=gvim -f --remote-tab-silent %F

reverse ssh connections

Posted 05-23-2011 at 05:01 AM by neonsignal

Setting up a reverse ssh connection can be useful when the destination machine is inside a NAT, and a port cannot be forwarded to it (eg, a work LAN), but an ssh in the reverse direction is possible.

Try Linux before you switch

Posted 05-21-2011 at 07:22 PM by Telengard (Here are some things which I hope will be helpful.)

Are you thinking of switching from Windows to Linux? Are you worried about the installation process? How can you protect your Windows system and data just in case something goes wrong?

Before you begin playing with an operating system you may know very little about, please consider backing up any data you care about to at least two external media.

Boot Linux from a live CD
