New-Make ready for hyperjump and KDE Menu's How-To

This is somewhat advanced stuff but.. maybe not. It might also appeal to anyone who has a little talent for tinkering who needs to set up a KDE menu for an application that doesn't have one. See warning below, however.

Today's features
  • Last of the first generation new-make installer/uninstallers (probably).
  • Usage example that installs and uninstalls a dummy application and icons into the KDE menus.

Two computers, one old acoustic system, no digital input: what to do?

Posted 05-09-2011 at 03:07 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

The short answer could have been "utilize analog and digital inputs" but my case here is quite old system having only one input.
I didn't really look into this question until I had to, today.
Some days before, when I was experiencing troubles with sound in Steam I installed pulseaudio and during search for it noticed "network" word in description. So I thought maybe I can set it up so I will send sound from second computer to first(over gigabit home LAN), which...

Gnome 3?

Posted 04-11-2011 at 10:14 AM by williamfromtexas

Should you make the switch to Gnome 3?

For some of you out there, you won't even be using a graphical interface. For others, you may have to think more about this decision.

Some distributions will include it as a prominent feature of their upcoming releases (Fedora 14, Mageia), but a lot of people are really just waiting for real world bug fixing before giving 3.2(?) a serious try.

Gnome 3 is a snappy revision to the traditional desktop. This new version...

Where are desktop icons stored in KDE4 Plasma?

Posted 03-06-2011 at 06:34 AM by dr_agon

After switching to KDE4 I was little confused with its new philosophy of Plasma containers and activities. As it looked interesting, I tried to find more information. Now, there are some nice posts showing how to use it, but I couldn't find the answer for a simple question: where the information about desktop icons is stored on a disk?

Just for the record, in KDE 4.4.5 it is in
'~/.kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc'

rss-glx: 3D fireworks screensaver and more

Posted 11-07-2010 at 06:03 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

About two years ago, when I wasn't yet a linux user I saw a video on youtube, a comparision of two laptops, one running Ubuntu, another windblows vista.
at some moment of video the guy starts some ugly screensaver from windblows, something looks like old "pipes" from older versions of the system and then, starts this outstanding 3d screensaver with fireworks exploding under the clouds in ubuntu laptop. Which is free and opensource, yeah.
I never actually used screensavers...
