After installing a fresh install of Linux/Debian Lenny, and attempting to access the web with Ice Weasel, you soon discover you cannot play videos without installing Adobe Flash Player.

Next, copy the .so file to the following folder: usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

That is it! The next time...

Clear Hot Spot Internet

Posted 02-14-2011 at 12:37 AM by FredGSanford

I just finish getting this Clear Spot to work using my current Win XP desktop USB port. My next project will see how it works with Linux.

The Clear Spot is a 4G personal hotspot that lets you connect up to 8 wireless devices, everywhere you go in the Clear coverage area.

I had been using the On-the-Go USB wireless device but wasn't satisfied since it wouldn't work with Linux or PPC Macs, so I decided to switch for a home modem at first but noticed the hot spot router....

Slackware-13.1-Hacks-Firefox Hardening

Mozilla-Firefox Hardening

The current version of Firefox for Slackware 13.1 is mozilla-firefox-3.6.13 from the patches directory. Always use the latest version to get the latest security updates.

If you want to play Flash content, compile and install flash-player-plugin (10.3_d162) from The older versions had some serious security issues. I installed the plugin, then visited the Adobe Flash website so Adobe Flash will store a cookie on my computer....

Hello everyone, I am new to Linux

Posted 02-13-2011 at 12:04 PM by coloradorockies

I installed Linux onto my desktop after my Windows Vista crashed and my backup didn't work. I have an Acer (yes I know it sucks) and there was no backup disc. I do have my files backed up on Click free. Anyways, windows was driving me nuts and I procrastinated installing Linux for a year. But,obviously, the Linux god told me it was time to learn. Not scared for I learned GIMP and love it. So, I am pretty sure I can learn Linux. However, my state of mind is still in Windows mode.
