Post date: December 5, 2006, 20:12 Category: Desktop Views: 3862 Comments
Tutorial quote: Although Ubuntu comes with lots of applications that can be installed on your desktop, there are still some applications that are available only from third-party repositories. Finding all these repositories and installing these applications manually is very time-consuming, but fortunately some people have created a script called Automatix2 (which is the successor to Automatix) which automates the task for you. It comes with a graphical interface so that you can run it from your desktop, and this tutorial describes how you do it.

Reset your Settings for any Program

Post date: November 11, 2007, 05:11 Category: Desktop Views: 3867 Comments
Tutorial quote: Ever messed with settings and majorly screwed something up? I have.

Yesterday I was trying to pull a stunt by trying to embed Konsole in my KDE desktop and when I restarted the X server I had no desktop icons and couldn’t even get back to my settings to change it back! I was thinking OMG, RRR (Repartition, Reformat, Reinstall) time.

But wait, what if I just clear out my settings? Kind of a crude way of doing it, but it worked.
