Install Linux Mint 12 (Lisa) on 13inch MacBook Air 4.2 (2011 model)

Linux Mint 12 (Lisa) is based on Ubuntu 11.10 so the script created by Joshua Dillon that is referenced on the Ubuntu MacBook Air site would in theory work, however as I found I needed to do a little tweaking to get this to occur. Below are the steps that enabled me to run Mint 12 on my MacBook Air.


Home - GitHub

For a quick introduction to Autojump, see this video. One of the most used shell commands is “cd”. A quick survey among my friends revealed that between 10 and 20% of all commands they type are actually cd commands! Unfortunately, jumping from one part of your system to another with cd requires you to enter almost the full path, which isn’t very practical and requires a lot of keystrokes.

What the Russian papers say | What Russian papers say | RIA Novosti

Russian Technologies set to buy blocking stake in national operating system This summer Russian Technologies, a state corporation aiming to help fuel future technological breakthroughs in Russia, acquired a blocking stake in Alt Linux, a Russian company developing and distributing free off-the-shelf and customized software, and put itself forward as the national operating system operator. The fact that Russian Technologies asked the Ministry of Communications and Mass Media to appoint it operator of the national operating system has been confirmed to this paper by a ministerial source and a top manager of a major Russian IT company. France's Mandriva S.A. open source software company may compete with Russian Technologies in implementing this project, due to annually receive an estimated 10 billion rubles ($306 million) worth of federal allocations. The national operating system is being developed under the new Information Society state program, Deputy Minister of Communications and Mass Media Ilya Massukh said recently. The operator will be selected through a tender to be held in early 2011. Russian Technologies, which bought a blocking stake in Alt Linux through its subsidiary Sirius in July 2010, may eventually acquire a controlling interest. The New Generation Initiative (NGI) Foundation, established by Artur Akopyan, former financial director of Russia's Synterra telecommunications operator and currently managing director of private equity firm Sloane Square Capital Partners (SSCP), also wants to help establish the national operating system. This summer NGI bought a minority stake in Mandriva, which is also involved in the project. In essence, this involves the introduction of free software, first introduced in Russian schools in 2007, in Russian state agencies. At that time, then First Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and software developers agreed on acquiring a software package at federal expense for a period of three years and the simultaneous development of software that works in a similar way. A total of 2.7 billion rubles ($88.2 million) was allocated to provide schools with licensed software. In 2007-2008, the Armada group teamed up with Alt Linux to deliver software packages to schools in three pilot regions, namely, Tatarstan, the Perm Territory and the Tomsk Region, but it failed to win a nationwide school-software supply tender in 2009. Alt Linux CEO Alexei Smirnov said the National Research Institute of Control Automation in the Non-Industrial Sector (VNIINS), which had developed a Linux version of software from Red Hat, Inc., a major Linux distribution vendor, for the Russian Armed Forces was the company's real rival.


Pinguy OS

Ubuntu is a great OS and undoubtedly the most popular and easiest Linux based Distro to use but even with its default setup and chosen programs it's still lacking functionality and ease of use for most new users. So what I decided to do was build a Distro that looks good, could do everything most user would ever want to do and that was very simple to use. I started out by listening to what my friends and family wanted to use their PC for and found the most user friendly programs for the task they wanted to do. After a while I got a good idea what most people use their PC for and what programs where the easiest to use. Like using Shotwell for easily uploading images to Facebook, gtkpod for putting music, photos and video on a ipod/iphone and mvPod for converting the video to a iPod friendly format. So all the programs in Pinguy OS have been chosen because of there ease of use and functionality, I also changed every file type to open with the right program, like for some reason by default .iso are opened with Archive Manager so I changed that to Brasero Disc Burner.

16 Best Linux Desktop Customization #3 - Tux-planet

Voici la troisième édition des meilleures personnalisations de bureaux Linux. Six mois se sont écoulés depuis la dernière présentation, les tendances n'ont pas beaucoup évolué, sauf peut-être pour le logiciel de monitoring conky, qui ressemble parfois à un tableau de bord de voiture (cf. premier screenshot). Pour ma part, celui qui m'a le plus impressionné est Izobalax, avec "FRSTY", une modification du bureau KDE comme on l'a rarement vu. Bref, je vous laisse sans plus attendre juger par vous-même.
