ubuntu unleashed

Play videos within rar files without unpacking/extracting them in Ubuntu!

If you download your movies and tv series only as scene releases, then you'll have to extract the release's video file from its multiple rar files. That can take some time... Not a horrible long time. You can live with it... But I learned a cool thing and thought I could share it just because I have nothing better to do.

You'll need the packages "unrar" and "vlc" (or "mplayer" or any other video player you may prefer)...

Pidgin 2.2.0 package released for Ubuntu Feisty (setup & installation instructions)

This release incorporate improvements from Google Summer of Code 2007, Myspace IM, and bug fixes.

This release includes enhancement on the XMPP protocol made by Andreas Monitzer during the Google Summer of Code for Adium, more information can be found on Adium page.

Another feature I really enjoy is the ability to revert to the old gaim layout. For instance, a new entry in the menu Buddy->Show allows you to show protocol icons in the buddy list, right-clicking the empty space in the formatting toolbar allows you to toggle back to the old "ungrouped" version...

Dell releases custom Ubuntu 7.04 ISOs with drivers and fixes

Dell has released a custom "remastered" Ubuntu 7.04 installation CD ISO that can be used to install Ubuntu on an Inspiron 1420 or 530. The ISO automatically installs all of the drivers and fixes that are required to make Ubuntu fully functional on those systems.

Dell laptops with Ubuntu preinstalled currently ship with a regular Ubuntu 7.04 installation CD that can be used to reinstall the operating system from scratch after reformatting. Unfortunately, the default Ubuntu installation does not include the best drivers so dell has a new remastered custom ubuntu cd just for you.

The "remastered" installation ISO could also be used by Inspiron 1420 and 530 owners who didn't buy their laptops with Ubuntu preinstalled, but wish to install it themselves...

Picking the Kernel thats Right for You (Possible Speed Increase)

This is about messing with the kernel and that can be tricky business. Has never messed up for me, but it is a little nerdy. Look here if you want to learn and maybe get a speed boast (or if you have a dual core/dual processor/hyperthreading machine because you WILL get a performance boost). Use at you own risk, I am not a kernel developer or anything. - Mark Shuttleworth
