The Perfect Desktop - Ubuntu Studio 11.10

Post date: October 25, 2011, 09:10 Category: Desktop Views: 20349 Comments
Tutorial quote: This tutorial shows how you can set up an Ubuntu Studio 11.10 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge. Please note that Ubuntu Studio 11.10 uses Xfce as the default desktop environment (instead of GNOME).

How To Configure Remote Access To Your Ubuntu Desktop

Post date: February 14, 2008, 13:02 Category: Desktop Views: 4561 Comments
Tutorial quote: This guide explains how you can enable a remote desktop on an Ubuntu desktop so that you can access and control it remotely. This makes sense for example if you have customers that are not very tech-savvy. If they have a problem, you can log in to their desktops without the need to drive to their location. I will also show how to access the remote Ubuntu desktop from a Windows XP client and an Ubuntu client.

Enabling Compiz Fusion On An Ubuntu Classic 11.04 Desktop (GNOME)

Post date: July 7, 2011, 11:07 Category: Desktop Views: 3296 Comments
Tutorial quote: This tutorial shows how you can enable Compiz Fusion on an Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) desktop with the classic GNOME interface, i.e., no Unity (the system must have a 3D-capable graphics card - I'm using an NVIDIA GeForce 8200 here). With Compiz Fusion you can use beautiful 3D effects like wobbly windows or a desktop cube on your desktop.

Xgl on SUSE 10.1 for Gnome and KDE with NVidia Graphics Cards

Post date: May 12, 2006, 13:05 Category: Desktop Views: 5055 Comments
Tutorial quote: Perhaps the most interesting eye-candy introduced to a mainstream Linux distribution is that of the Xgl 3D desktop environment. Naturally, when seen, it fosters the thought, "How can I do that on my own desktop?" I'll be honest with you, it's not quite as point-and-click as some of the other desktop niceties that we've discussed in the past, such as gdesklets or the gkrellm monitors. That in mind, if you're interested in getting Xgl installed and running on your desktop, you've found the right place. We'll take it a bit at a time and make sure we get you set up. First of all, I need to make sure that you are using this tutorial for a machine running either SUSE Linux 10.1 or SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10, and that you have an NVidia video card. With that, let's get going.

A Beginner's Guide To LVM

Post date: January 16, 2007, 19:01 Category: System Views: 4573 Comments
Tutorial quote: This guide shows how to work with LVM (Logical Volume Management) on Linux. It also describes how to use LVM together with RAID1 in an extra chapter. As LVM is a rather abstract topic, this article comes with a Debian Etch VMware image that you can download and start, and on that Debian Etch system you can run all the commands I execute here and compare your results with mine. Through this practical approach you should get used to LVM very fast.

Introduction To The Ubuntu Unity Desktop

Post date: August 18, 2011, 08:08 Category: Desktop Views: 3271 Comments
Tutorial quote: This tutorial is supposed to guide the reader through some new features of the Unity desktop, Ubuntu's new desktop environment used since Ubuntu 11.04. The prime subject will be the launcher, which is something like a side-dock, and how to configure it the way it fits your likings most.

How To Monitor A System With Sysstat On Centos 4.3

Post date: August 29, 2006, 15:08 Category: System Views: 6752 Comments
Tutorial quote: A common task for System Administrators is to monitor and care for a server. That's fairly easy to do at a moment's notice, but how to keep a record of this information over time? One way to monitor your server is to use the Sysstat package.

Sysstat is actually a collection of utilities designed to collect information about the performance of a linux installation, and record them over time.

It's fairly easy to install too, since it is included as a package on many distributions.

Benchmark: Apache2 vs. Lighttpd (Static HTML Files)

Post date: September 21, 2008, 12:09 Category: Benchmarks Views: 6540 Comments
Tutorial quote: This benchmark shows how Apache2 (version 2.2.3) and lighttpd (version 1.4.13) perform compared to each other when delivering a static HTML file (about 50KB in size). This benchmark was created with the help of ab (Apache benchmark) on a VMware vm (Debian Etch); if you try this yourself, your numbers might differ (depending on your hardware), but the tendency should be the same.
