Reset your Settings for any Program

Post date: November 11, 2007, 05:11 Category: Desktop Views: 3003 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.

Making a DVD from CDs

Post date: December 4, 2005, 16:12 Category: Installing Views: 3570 Comments
Tutorial quote: People have requested to have a single DVD instead of the 5 CD's. The reasons for this are various. I have written a program called makeSUSEdvd that can make the DVD in a very easy manner. First download the CD's. These can be either the NOVELL SUSE CD's or the openSUSE cd's. You do not need to burn them, just put them in one directory with only the 5 CD's in it. You will need the root password. If you do not have that, the program is not good and you should do it by hand.

How to Install Latest Wine in debian Etch

Post date: December 22, 2008, 07:12 Category: Software Views: 2959 Comments
Tutorial quote: Wine makes it possible to run Windows programs alongside any Unix-like operating system,particularly Linux. At its heart, Wine is an implementation of the Windows Application
Programing Interface (API) library, acting as a bridge between the Windows program and Linux.Think of Wine as a compatibility layer, when a Windows program tries to perform a function that Linux doesn’t normally understand, Wine will translate that program’s instruction into one supported by the system. For example, if a program asks the system to create a Windows pushbutton or text-edit field, Wine will convert that instruction into its Linux equivalent in the form of a command to the window manager using the standard X11 protocol.
