No sound in Oracle virtualbox

Posted 11-23-2015 at 06:24 PM by WestCoastSunset

I run oracle virtualbox to run XP for one program for which there is no comparable Linux equivalent. I use to have sound working when I had debian 7 installed. But with debian 8 sound on a prexisting image does not work the virtual device is only recognized as a pci device which means XP's plug and play feature will not work.

The problem? I was using the K desktop and just about everything I have ever seen in linux is usually developed with Gnome in mind. The solution? Install Gnome...

Gnome 3 and Debian Jessie

Posted 12-07-2014 at 12:46 PM by jere21

My setup/configuration changes and wishlist for Gnome 3 in Debian (Jessie comes with Gnome 3.14):

Install
  • gnome-shell-extensions (although Gnome recommends to only install extensions from https://extensions.gnome.org, but no packaged extensions.)
  • gnome-system-tools (many things, e.g. GUI for user and groups management. IMO this package should be suggested or recommended by some other gnome package more prominently (currently only gnome-nettool suggests it and lxde (!) recommends

Installing the Graphical Window System (X.org-X11) and the Default Desktop Environment on CentOS 6

Installing the Graphical Window System (X.org-X11) and the Default Desktop Environment on CentOS 6

Performing the default "Minimal" install of CentOS 6 does not install the graphical subsystem (the X.org server) and the desktop environment (e.g. GNOME or KDE). Such OS install is nice for building an optimal system from scratch, setting up a headless server (no monitor, keyboard and mouse) and other purposes; but for one reason or another, you may still require a graphical...

Gnome 3?

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.

Off on their own

The announcement that Ubuntu is to seperate from GNOME from its new release is perhaps the perfect answer to the spat which took place last month over Canonicals contributions to the GNOME desktop. Personally, however, I feel that this move comes as no surprise and is 100 % the correct thing to do in the circumstances. From licensing H.264 to OEMs, to the partner repository to the Software Centre, Canonical has consistently seen itself as destinct from the larger Linux community. This is the latest...
