Here's what you need to do:
Firstly, in case you don't know, Dropbox is a cross-platform service for file sharing, synchronizing and backup.
You probably know that to use a Launchpad PPA repository, you must also import the GPG key. This is how it worked until Ubuntu Karmic Koala:
Hamachi is a zero-configuration virtual private network (VPN) application capable of establishing direct links between computers that are behind NAT firewalls without requiring reconfiguration (in most cases); in other words, it establishes a connection over the Internet that very closely emulates the connection that would exist if the computers were connected over a local area network.
If your browsers work OK, you do not need to disable IPv6. Also, there is nothing wrong with either Ubuntu (Karmic) or IPv6, so if you are experiencing any issues, they are because of your ISP / router / modem.
This repository contains the following packages:
-Docky (version 2.0~bzr315-0 at the time of writing this post) - the dock bar part of Gnome Do (read on!)
KernelCheck is a a program that automatically compiles and installs the latest Kernel for Debian based Linux distributions (Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, etc.). The program also allows for automatic installation of proprietary video drivers via EnvyNG.
A lot of people are praising MPD (Music Player Daemon) + Sonata so an article on this was probably expected.
But what is MPD and what is Sonata?
Firefox is able to handle one click installs in Ubuntu using a protocol called "apt: url" (Example: Playdeb.net website). On computers where apturl is enabled, clicking on a special type of link on a web page starts the installation of one or several packages available in the package repositories of this computer.
Mac OSX has Spotlight, MS Windows has Desktop Search or even Google Desktop and Linux/Gnome has Beagle. Like so many things in Unix, Beagle is faster, more powerful via the command line, and hostilely requires user configuration.
Some time ago we talked about using more than 3 GB of RAM in Ubuntu 32bit which involved installing the server kernel. Well, this is no longer possible in Ubuntu Karmic Koala (9.10).
I was telling you about my issues with scrolling in Firefox (see #6). Well, I didn't manage to fix that for Firefox 3.5 but instead, I installed Firefox 3.6 beta 1 pre (Namoroka) and the scrolling now works perfectly (thanks to Tinhed for the tip!).
Inkscape is an Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator, CorelDraw, or Xara X, using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format.
A few days ago, I wrote an article on how to use your home computer to get past internet restrictions with SSH but I didn't cover the aspect of the computer running the SSH sever not having a static IP. So here is how to use DynDNS hostname for your dynamic IP.
Actually, I've written this post before (quite a few months ago) but then deleted it because it didn't work. In the mean time, I found out why, so I decided to post it again.
