  1. Sorry if this is a double post or something, but I loved this commercial and wanted to share it with you guys. "Does he have a name?" "His name... is Linux." (Found from digg.com)

    Movies and whatnot

    Don't forget the libdvdcss codec thingie. Here's a great site for getting Suse up and functional: http://www.thejemreport.com/mambo/content/view/254
  4. VIA This Webpage As the topic states, I have an HP printer (HP 1210) hooked up to my windows xp box via USB and I have samba setup to share this printer in linux through the network. Only problem was, I couldn't print anything from it from linux. The printer would act like it was going to start to print, but then it would just stop. The print queue had a document called "remote downlevel document" and it would just sit there until I shut off the printer and deleted the job. So, after googling for a little bit on how to correct this, I found the solution: And it did fix it! I was so excited! This has been a problem since the beginning for me. It was nice to know that it was just as easy as disabling the "bi-directional support". I hope this can help other people along the way too.

    XGL in SuSe10.1?

    Short answer: Yes. Long answer: It's available, but you have to install it from the cd or dvd source through Yast2. I installed mine via the DVD and both xgl and compiz were there. Once you've installed those, you need to open the gnome control panel through the terminal by typing "gnome-control-center" and you'll see the xgl icon. Click on that, click enable 3d desktop, and ... ah, here's a full how to right from novel: http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/feature/17174.html Just follow this and it will work. Or if you prefer, here's a how to from the jem report: http://www.thejemreport.com/mambo/content/view/254
  6. Nevermind! I went ahead and just installed ubuntu over my previous Suse installation. Now I have the exact setup I wanted in the first place! [*] NTFS Support [*] Windows XP running via QEMU [*] Easy Updates [*] Multimedia buttons work [*] Beryl + XGL Working Awesome Ubuntu is awesome... really. I'm wondering how Edgy will be when that's released stable.
  7. I'm always willing to try another distro if it's worth it. What are the new features of FC6?
  8. Thanks! I didn't know that it would help with the compiz/xgl users... cool!
  9. Woo-Hoo! After weeks of searching for the perfect mouse pad to replace the mistake of the "WowPad" I bought at Office Depot (Just say no to Wowpad), I decided upon the C4-NGen Medium mouse pad featured in Maximum PC Magazine. I love this thing. So smooth, clean, and shiney with it's Teflon surface. I would recommend it to anybody, and if you want to get a feel for how smooth it is, just grab a cooking pan with Teflon and give it a whirl (you might feel kinda goofy, but you'll get the idea). There aren't very many reviews about these things, probably because they're not all that popular, but for $13 I think I got the best mousepad for my money.

  11. Terrific! I didn't realize that you had to be logged in as superuser. Thanks for the tip.

  12. I would very much like to setup Ubuntu to try on my machine, but I don't totally want to ditch Suse just yet either (and I need my Windows partition as well for school programs like SPSS). I'm not even sure what my current partitions look like because I don't know how to check. Is there a command to use to list the partition information? The commands fdisk and cfdisk aren't available. I know this is probably a big project, but... help?
  13. There is software out there that I have experimented with before to enlarge photos with minimal quality loss, but it's not what you would think. It's called interpolation software and it can be found pretty easily. The most advanced method of this enlarging is called S-Spline Interpolation. Here is one company who has some good software (probably not free though): http://www.benvista.com/main/content/content.php Here is a website that has good content, but a very crappy layout: http://www.americaswonderlands.com/digital...terpolation.htm I hope this will help you in your quest. Unfortunatly, like the others have said, you're not going to be able to get the absolute best quality from enlarging something. It's never going to be as good as the original.
  14. The credit for figuring out how to do this goes out to Scott from TheOpenSourceWeblog. I had dugg this tutorial or "how to" a few weeks ago, and although there were only 9 diggs, I still figured it was a trick worth mentioning around here. Here's the direct linky: http://opensource.weblogsinc.com/2005/05/2...-linux-use-kde/ Here's the link if you want to digg it: http://digg.com/linux_unix/Do_You_Miss_the..._to_Get_it_Back
