kde apps under XFCE

Posted 03-20-2013 at 03:05 PM by davetesc

Having to resort to using XFCE and LXDE as KDE ( my favourite ) is a bit heavy for my no so new laptop, I still use kaffeine, kate and kwrite, this is normally fine but after installing mint14 XFCE and then the above trio of kde apps I found that kaffeine failed with "Cannot open the SQLite database" and both kate and kwrite would crash when I clicked on the open file button.

Running kaffeine from the cli gave a load of errors relating to permission errors in .kde folder....

exGENT (Gentoo) live with kernel 3.7.10-gentoo-exton

I’ve made a new version (130318) of exGENT, which is based on Gentoo. The old version of exGENT is from 130215. My new exGENT Linux live system uses LXDE as Desktop Environment and “my special” genkernel 3.7.10-gentoo-exton. LXDE is used because of its speed. Quite new is that I’ve found a suitable installation program, in which a Grub installation (Grub Legacy) is included. I’ve also added more support för Atheros and Broadcom wireless cards in version 130318.

The best thing with...

A New Security Term to Add to Your Mental Library:

Posted 03-16-2013 at 03:28 PM by Nbiser

Security plays a pivotal role in our society. Without security our computer systems would fall part and money would be lost. Good passwords are an essential part of this infrastructure. As most of you know, good passwords should be long, and have a good mix of characters, letters, and numbers. Example: a9&dd4$Fd is pretty good, while 123 is not good.

Die, Ad, die?

Posted 03-15-2013 at 08:21 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

I hate ads. I took it upon myself to start filtering ads via unbound recently, but then my wife (an avid Google Chrome user) started complaining about the incredibly painful eyesore that is Chrome's way of saying "jeez...this piece of the page rejected my connection attempt".

There must be an easier way, right?

Yup. There is.

On an old sparc box, I put nginx. I configured it to serve 404.gif (a transparent gif) on all 404 errors. Oh, did...

After a lull in voice activities my lab is in tatters so its back to square 1.

First of all my SIP solution is based on Asterix/FreePBX .. I would like to be a CLI purest but I don't have the time and FreePBX has served me well. http://www.freepbx.org/ I would recomend downloading the app / linux distro as one package and either run it from an old box or a VM.
