guitar pro 6 on 64 bit Ubuntu

Posted 11-10-2010 at 04:23 PM by jkzfixme

Guitar Pro 6. It ROCKS. It rocks out on Penguin Power. This is the first time I have paid for software in years ( they offer a trial version as well). What more can you ask for ? I have been using Guitar Pro since 99 when I lived in Paris, and it has helped me learn countless songs. There is however a catch , it only officially supports 1386 architecture. Not to worry, if you are rocking 64 bits of awesome like me you can just bring up a terminal and do the following.

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...

Giving Feedback About Dell...

Posted 10-23-2010 at 07:54 AM by beetleman64 (Sensible World of Linux)

I just posted some feedback off to Dell, expressing my "disappointment" over their decision to remove Ubuntu-based computers from their website. I didn't think to copy it, but it went something like:
I am disappointed by the decision to remove Ubuntu... I am sure there is a market... if you give Ubuntu and Windows equal coverage then many entry-level users would be interested... you shouldn't be bending to Windows' monopoly...
Anyway, I gave the website a rating of 2/5 and...

Things that annoy me in Ubuntu

Posted 10-22-2010 at 05:55 AM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

I'm currently using Ubuntu on my desktop computer, and would like to share some of my issues with it and Gnome.

1) Updater creating popups and stealing my window focus
Updating is supposed to be a great feature of Linux distributions, but Ubuntu sucks at the GUI end of it. While updating I have to either leave my computer alone until the process is finished or face annoying popups in the middle of my screen every five seconds with a progress bar on them for every stage of...

Ubuntu 1st, Mac 2nd, Windows DNF

Posted 10-21-2010 at 11:36 AM by beetleman64 (Sensible World of Linux)

Apple's announcement that a Mac OS App store would be a major presence is Mac OS X 10.7 Lion was perhaps unsurprising. After all, what more would you expect from the company which essentially introduced the idea on the iPhone and now the iPad. What is surprising is that Apple has been beaten to it by none other than Ubuntu, an OS whose unashamed vision is to take on and beat Apple at their own game.

Users of Ubuntu 10.10 will doubtless be aware of the inclusion in the Software Centre...
