Debian unlike other distros like Ubuntu does not come with sudo enabled by default. That said it is easy enough to set it up.

How to setup sudo:

1) Use visudo to edit your sudoers file
2) Add your user to the sudo group
adduser foo sudo
3) Or you can use gksu, or kdesu on KDE.

Or you can follow the simple steps here:

Tags hash, icon, root, screen

In case anybody is looking for one (I was and could not find one anywhere), the attachments are terminal icons with a hash (#) character.

This is not my area of expertise so improvement suggestions are welcome. Is PNG the best format for icons? Is 48x48 a good size choice?

In case anyone is curious how it was made, Terminal.svg was copied and loaded in Gimp. Most of the shading was removed (plain black background is more distinct at small display sizes such as in...

Root your G1 and add cyanogenmod

Posted 10-06-2009 at 12:05 PM by jkzfixme

So last year I posted a blog about why my wife should let me spend our rent money on an android dev phone. Well as it turned out I ended up waiting a few months for my sprint contract to be up and jumped ship to Tmobile. Android is simply the best thing since sliced bread, it has everything I could need and then some. That being said there are multiple reasons why I rooted it.
