  1. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 14.04: trying to put a program launched from terminal onto taskbar

    In Unity you need to create a ".desktop" file to have a launcher. The details of this are explained here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UnityLaunchersAndDesktopFiles

    Re: Linux has until April 2013 to grab me back

    Yes, but they were crazy to start with. They didn't give users a mouse with a right-click until well into the 2000s.

    Also, I seem to have no avatar or signature. And this got moved to recurring. I...

    Linux has until April 2013 to grab me back

    TL;DR - I'm looking for something good that Linux has to offer before Lucid Lynx loses support. I'm not impressed with Unity, Gnome 3, or Windows 8, so I'd like something good that the open-source...
  6. Poll: Re: Time for Google Chrome to be the default browser?

    Chromium scores 293 and Chrome scores 288, which is only slightly better than Firefox's 255 and Opera's 258. When compared to IE9 (130) Firefox 4 is still way ahead in standards compliance.

    Also,...
  7. Poll: Re: Time for Google Chrome to be the default browser?

    Well, given that Canonical tries to include only open-source programs in their default programs, Google Chrome is unlikely to ever be the default. Chromium could be, but not Chrome.

    Regardless, I...
  8. Re: How would you answer the question, "How does Linux make money"?

    In my experience open source projects make money in five different ways:

    1. They take donations. A well known project that functions mainly on donations is the Gnome project.

    2. They offer paid...

    Re: How idealistic are you about FLOSS?

    I fall into the group that feels that FOSS is a good idea and I love some of the software that it has produced. I also love the fact that the community of FOSS has a lot of power behind it. However,...

    Re: Could Linux power a computer for 20 years?

    My family bought our first computer 14 years ago, way back in early 1997. It's specs were (and still are):

    Gateway 2000 P5-200
    200 MHz Pentium I
    32 MB RAM
    4 GB HDD

    Re: GNOME Blog on Canonical, GNOME, and KDE

    Canonical and GNOME especially have been butting heads as of late. The whole Unity vs. GNOME Shell thing is just short of becoming an outright war, and there can only be one "winner". Either most...
