Linux Works - Part 1

Posted 01-01-2009 at 10:17 PM by xasanchez

I have bought several books on Linux, especially on the core of the operating system itself.

Wait a minute! All of them have very good work. All have very good forewords, contents, and almost all of them have the same chapter content and especially in the same order.

Look at me! I studied Electronics Engineering. My experience is about the two magnificent worlds of computer and telecommunications. Even for me, at the time of this writing I am 44, it is very hard...

Moving sucks ...... but with a new crib comes mythtv !

Archaic manuals and cables that I cant bring myself to throw away seemed to be a living entity, and I spent my week feeling like the Atlas man !

Installing Img2pdf Software on Debian Linux

Posted 01-01-2009 at 10:22 AM by wmromine
Tags img2pdf, pdf

I had a need to get the Img2pdf software from www.freshmeat.net to run on my Debian 3.1 (Sarge) linux machine. This software is used to convert a folder of single page image files to a single pdf document. Installing the img2pdf software turned out to be a very difficult task for me since I am not familiar with programming. The hardship could have been significantly reduced if better installation documentation were available, but that did not appear to be the case. Since I was able to successfully...
