  1. Re: Ubuntu Classic Edition, what are your thoughts ?

    Ubuntu 14.04 has MATE 1.6 in the official package sources. Having a PPA with some additional artwork that give you back the look of previous Ubuntu releases could be a nice thing. Maybe it will grow...

  4. Re: Why aren't more Linux applications written in Java?

    Last commit in the git repository is from 2010-02-09. I guess the project is dead.

    Re: Best programming language to learn next?

    Maybe learning assembler will give you more insight to what a computer is capable of but it will not give you a new way of thinking about algorithms and programming like Haskell does. In some way...

    [ubuntu] Re: fatal error: opening dependency file????

    sudo ./configure && make runs ./configure as root and make as ordinary user, which causes your permission problem.
    You actually should not run neither ./configure nor make as root.

    [all variants] Re: gconftool, gconf-editor, and dconf-editor

    In Gnome3 gconf has been replaced by GSettings with dconf as its default backend. They don't use the same database.

  20. Re: What will become of GTK2 and any projects that choose to stay with it?

    Linux is just the kernel. Without a user space it just lets you watch it booting and then stare at a "Init not found" error message.

    What do you really want to do?
  25. [ubuntu] Re: How to change or refresh the Unity theme with command line?

    It uses the Gnome configuration system and works in Unity and Gnome but not in KDE, XFCE and LXDE.

    I didn't check, but I guess it's basically the same as Unity Tweak Tool is doing.
