The 11 Most Useful Linux Commands in the World Ever  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, June 30 2010 @ 11:41 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

LinuxAlmost every Linux website seems to have a list of the "best command line commands". Sometimes they get them wrong.

Here is a list of useful commands that I came up with by looking at my 'history' file. I would not be happy to use a computer platform that didn't support them.

Mandriva Linux Wins My Big Fat Gratitude  View Printable Version 
Saturday, June 26 2010 @ 11:39 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Mandriva LinuxOver the last few days I’ve installed a smorgasboard of *nix distros, trying to find one that will work with my hardware. I was looking for a recent distribution with a decent desktop, either KDE or Gnome. My hardware is a pedestrian HP desktop that is so anonymous and faceless that I don’t even know it’s name. It has an NVidia graphics card, an Intel NIC, and an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. You’d think that this kind of generic iron wouldn’t be a problem to find an OS for.

The fall and rise of Mandriva Linux  View Printable Version 
Saturday, June 26 2010 @ 09:58 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Mandriva LinuxIt looks like Mandriva, the Paris based Linux company, continues to be a fig leaf away from financial breakdown.

A recent report in LeMagIT, claims that Arnaud Laprévote, the company's chief executive, has found unnamed investors who are prepared to rescue the company, following months of rumours of financial turmoil, unpaid staff and other troubles.

Photoshop brush support in Krita  View Printable Version 
Thursday, June 24 2010 @ 08:49 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEhanks to the pledge we did long time ago and thanks to the community member, Silvio Grosso, who made major donation, I’m working on Krita for next ~12 weeks full-time. The Krita community and me prepared Action Plan II. It’s something like Google Summer Of Code proposal but with much more targets. I have tasks per week, not one big target like Summer Of Code projects.

First two weeks of the plan are devoted to the support of the Photoshop brushes. I worked on it already in Action Plan I, I added support of the brush masks (bitmaps) from the file format, but there are still presets saved in the ABR format and we want to support them.

Mandriva Saved By New Investors  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, June 22 2010 @ 11:07 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Mandriva LinuxAfter weeks of concern about the "catastrophic state of it's finances" and an indefinite delay in the release of version 2010.1, the French website LeMagIT is reporting that Mandriva has been saved by new investors. The article quotes Mandriva Director General Arnaud Laprévote: "Today the company found investors who decided to invest in the company, in order to give balance to the organization and to find a good economic model."

Weekend Project: Configure Your Keyboard Into Submission  View Printable Version 
Friday, June 18 2010 @ 01:51 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

HowtoMost of us take our keyboards for granted when they're working smoothly; perhaps we struggle for a bit finding the correct keyboard layout when doing a fresh Linux install, but once the OS is up and running they tend to stay out of our way. Except for those one or two keys that never quite do what they are supposed to. From the application "hot keys" on full-sized or multimedia keyboards to the peculiar add-ons sported by some laptop and netbook models, there are bound to be one or two specialty keys that need tweaking. You'll need some time and a couple of spare terminal windows to configure them into submission.

Mandriva in the storm…  View Printable Version 
Monday, June 14 2010 @ 03:06 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Mandriva LinuxAlthough difficult to read in some areas, here is an insiders view of the current state at Mandriva:

"Mandriva team is at the moment in a very bad situation.

No real strategy and no decision for a while now, even if CEOs have changed several times these last months. Hervé Yahi, end of 2008 (now CS0), Stanislas Bois (was CFO before), then now Arnaud Laprévote."

Dashboard: A KWin effect plugin  View Printable Version 
Sunday, June 13 2010 @ 08:27 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEI wanted to learn Qt, so I started off by reading some KDE source files and making small cosmetic changes here and there (e.g. GUI improvements for the NetworkManagement plasmoid, adding blur to some plasmoids). I also patched KWin’s change screen OSD, which was missing the blur effect. This was the first time, I got my hands on KWin code.
