Gnome inches closer to microsoft (with mono)

Posted 04-06-2009 at 05:08 PM by Dubious Dave

I've been a user of Gnome since FC1 and just never had a reason to try another desktop. I starting using Linux initially, because windows was so infuriatingly bad. Now it's all about not being forced to use a microsoft product. However, the inclusion of mono in a number of gnome applications bothers me. You can remove mono from your system now, but maybe in the future you can't. Been thinking about KDE lately though. It's starting to look real good. Now gnome has announced this new Gnome...

Noo 'puter

Posted 04-06-2009 at 12:27 PM by brianL

Well, I finally got round to getting (ordering, anyway) my new computer today. Getting it from the same local shop/firm where I got my present desktop and laptop. I haven't really studied the hardware side much, but it sounds pretty good to me. Here are some details:

* AMD Athlon 64 x2 5200+ DualCore Processor (3 years manufacturers warranty), can be up-graded, see below.
* System is built around the quality ASRock N61P-S motherboard (2 years manufacturers warranty)....

Back up Your Gnome Desktop and all Settings in Gnome.

Neat little tool. Yourgnome allow users to backup all things relative to Gnome on your Linux Machine. Packs everything into a tar.gz into your Home folder. Also includes the tools to extract the tar.gz file so you can restore your Gnome Desktop to a your previous saved state. I've used it and it works. I used the non GUI version when it first came out. Easy to use. Kudos to Abu Yusuf for taking the time to make it. There are 2 versions. A non GUI version that just runs in terminal. And a 2nd edition...

Linux Lesson for Today: fixing bootsplash

Posted 04-06-2009 at 04:06 AM by phoenixrising (Learning Something Everyday about Linux)
Tags bootsplash

After installing yet another distro in my machine, the bootsplash (the screen that shows up while booting with a progress bar -- for Ubuntu, Mint etc) started acting weird: After showing up, and the blip going to and fro a couple of time -- the splash disappeared and all the textual progress started showing up.

This link solved my problem.

1. Make sure you have the initramfs-tools update

sudo apt-get install initramfs-tools
