HP-2133 Upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04 -- an important prerequisite

Posted 11-22-2014 at 07:30 PM by flshope

The HP-2133 Mini-note PC is a laptop computer with a 9-in. viewable diagonal screen. It has a single-core 1.2 MHz processor with 2 GB RAM and a 120 GB disk. The machine came with SUSE Enterprise Desktop 10 installed, a poor choice because none of the peripherals worked.

Small Steps

Posted 11-22-2014 at 03:36 PM by m3rl1n

It has been a long time, since... well.
OK I am addicted. I started with Linux a while ago, and I can't live without it. I threw myself recently into server management Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Apache style And I spawned myself as a newbie Android programmer - lucky me I have a PhP/Java & SQL background and some years of C/C++, that really helped. I find more and more MS victims willing to try a Linux distro, but keep asking myself why MS is still around - it is annoying - like IOS he heh......

Exton|OS Kiosk (ISO file of 344 MB!) build 141122 is based on Ubuntu 14.10 64 bit (released October 23, 2014) and Debian Jessie. Exton|OS’s ISO file is a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to a USB pen drive. You can install and run Exton|OS from a USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you can enjoy persistence! Exton|OS Kiosk can not be installed to hard drive.

Few applications
Only Firefox (The Best Web Browser), LXTerminal,...

There's a "compact" version of the Adwaita GTK3 theme

Posted 11-21-2014 at 05:14 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Tags gtk3, rant

Just spreading the word, perhaps there are many other people who prefer things more tightly packed rather than all spaced out, as it seems to be the current mobile-UI infection/trend.

Who'd have guessed that resolutions superior to 1024x768 would end up being nullified by "advancements" in technology...
