Linux Media Player Roundup - Part 4

Welcome to part 4 of our media player roundup. Today we'll be covering a couple of interesting players that most older Linux users may remember, and most new users may not even know exists. We'll also be covering players that don't typically fit what would be considered the norm for a media player, but which provide you with quite a wide range of possible applications for daily use.

Mozilla hits back at Firefox 3 quality slur

Mozilla has hit back at claims that multiple bugs in its forthcoming Firefox 3 browser will be ignored in order to meet release schedules. IDG analyst Gregg Keizer reported that fixes for as many as eight in ten identified bugs would be ready in time for the scheduled release of Firefox 3 (Gran Paradiso) next year. Keizer cited notes from a Mozilla development meeting to support his claims, carried in a story in the New York Times last Thursday.

How To Disable ipv6 on Ubuntu 7.10 “Gutsy Gibbon”

I found a really quick fix today for disabling ipv6 completely on Ubuntu 7.10 (not yet tested on previous versions). This might be of interest to some of you that have had networking problems, as I’ve heard disabling ipv6 at least within the browser has been a help here.

Unpacking the Ubuntu Linux CD’s

Today I have received this wonderful envelope from Canonical LTD with two Ubuntu 7.10 CD’s inside. One for the 32-bit computer and the other for the 64-bit computer. Although by now I have already installed the Ubuntu Operating System on my laptop, these eye-catching seed-ee’s live for another purpose.

How-To: Find files on your computer with find

A standard Linux system has an incredible amount of files installed. Looking for a file location can be a painful task to do though a file browser. Fortunately, there is a nifty command line available by default on any Linux distribution: find.

A first look at the Firefox 3 visual refresh for Linux

Mozilla ruffled some penguin feathers last month when the organization revealed that Firefox 3 would get an extensive visual refresh to maximize integration with Windows and Mac OS X, but not Linux. After the decision was widely criticized by Linux enthusiasts, Mozilla reversed its position and decided to revisit Linux theming.

Disk Encryption on Linux

I finally encrypted some partitions of my hard drive. An external hard drive that I just bought (320 Mb) allowed me to back up my entire /home partition and consider encrypting it. I mainly used this tutorial, but I derived a little from it about the unlocking system : I did not want to input a password while the machine boots, I wanted it to be transparent while I log in. This how to provides more complete information, if needed.

Ubuntu Hardy Heron Theme Mockup

From the Ubuntu wiki HardyTheme page: "Our target audience will be drawn to ubuntu because of the fresh bling and simple beauty of the OS. Through this we can fix bug#1"

Flock plugins on Ubuntu

So you just downloaded Flock, fell in love with it and believe this is the browser for you. Previously, you already installed all the preferred plugins for firefox , yet Flock does not see them on Ubuntu? Where are the Flock plugins on ubuntu! Not to worry, just paste this into a terminal window as you see it below:

That Firefox 3 Bug "Rumor"

Mozilla has been taking some heat the past few days because of a post by Computer World’s Gregg Keizer. In it he quoted the latest Firefox 3 Meeting notes saying that 80% of the Firefox 3 bugs will not get fixed by the time the browser is released.

Making K3b rip DVDs on Ubuntu 7.10

I've complained repeatedly that K3b supplied via Ubuntu 7.10's repositories can't rip DVDs on Ubuntu 7.10. It worked for me on 7.04 as well as on every version of openSUSE I cared to try it on. I tried everything I could think of to get it to work short of installing Kubuntu, which I will never do. I have an abiding dislike of Kubuntu, stoked in part by its silly insistence that Konqueror is the default web browser, not Firefox.

The Complete Ubuntu Desktop Setup

The latest release of the very famous desktop oriented Linux distribution, Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon, was released last month and has earned high accolades from a very wide range of users. Almost every professional reviewer has applauded and appreciated this release, I can quote Ars Technica , PC World, Ditrowatch and Seopher.
Soepher actually goes to the extent of claiming that:

Great Firefox Extension - It's All Text!

I just came across a great Firefox extension called "It's All Text!". Any HTML textarea you see while browsing gets a little edit button on the bottom right corner - clicking it launches your favorite editor (the frst time you use it, it brings you to the preferences screen). For me, that's GNU Emacs.

AMOR: a desktop companion

AMOR is a nice toy which is absolutely senseless. It displays a tiny figure on your desktop, running on top of your windows or falling down to the bottom. It is a KDE application, but it should be no problem to use it in Gnome (as I do).

Tour of GNOME Online Desktop

Here’s a tour of the pre-alpha demo release of GNOME Online Desktop included in Fedora 8. Learn more about what it does and how you can get involved in the project.

Ubuntu, PCLinuxOS, SimplyMEPIS - 3 distros, 9 wireless stories

Just as as I was getting comfortable using Ubuntu on my desktop, enthusiastic readers have assailed me with stories about how I should give other Linux distros a try - particularly the KDE pair PCLinuxOS and SimplyMEPIS. I'm lucky to have four different computers at my immediate disposal so I tried the live CDs of the three distros on three of them to see how plug and play they were for wireless networking. The results were quite surprising.

Install VMware Server on Ubuntu 7.10 “Gutsy Gibbon” : Updated

My previous tutorial on installing VMware Server on Ubuntu 7.10 has been wildly successful but I also realize now that it has become a bit out of date.  This tutorial is an update with a few simplified steps.  It will be nice when VMware Server makes it into canonicals partner repository (as is available on Ubuntu 7.04), but until then these few steps should work for most of us.

IPBlock - Graphical IP Blocker

iplist allows users with no or basic knowledge of iptables to filter (e.g. to block) network traffic based on (automatically updated) lists. These lists have various formats and are sorted by different categories (e.g. countries, adware, corporations).

Rockbox: an open-source portable music platform

You think portable music players are an untouchabe package ?!

If you do then think again, because the amazing Rockbox changed that ...

Why Penguin is Linux logo?

Penguin as logo/mascot for Linux was discussed first in early 1996 by several people in the linux-kernel mailing list. The idea of such mascot came from Alan Cox first. Among many other suggestions made by different people there were parodies of other operating system logos, sharks or even eagles. You can find them here. Some of them:

Gosh, gOS is good

Many people still question whether Linux will ever make it fully into mainstream computer acceptance. A $199 computer now available on a major superstore's shelves just in time for Christmas might change all that. Anyone who wants a computer to just to send email and instant messages and watch YouTube videos should like the Everex gPC, which is powered by a nifty Linux distribution called gOS.
