Linux (Ubuntu)

Post by zadarmo3 on August 3rd 2009, 2:47 pm

First topic message reminder :

Anybody tried it before?

Maybe you don't know that RIGHT NOW Linux distros have a nice graphical interfaces, like GNOME or KDE or XFCE or Fluxbox and more.

I prefer GNOME.

And I use both Windows XP and Ubuntu 9.04 PL

What about you?

You can try Ubuntu by downloading and burning the livecd!

It includes lots of drivers and there's a big chance you won't have to install anything Wink

Here's the official Ubuntu's site: http://www.ubuntu.com/

Do you like it?

Or maybe you prefer another distro?

P.S: I searched for Linux and Ubuntu topics and haven't found anything. Sorry, if this is spam, I'm new here.

I bump this topic just to notice that Ubuntu 9.10 "Karmic Koala" has just been released.

Here is the link : http://www.ubuntu.com/

For those who want to upgrade, I strongly recommend you to read the documentation, and to be not shy to ask question on the Ubuntu community before doing anything, because if you do it wrong, you'll have to reinstall the system. And it's always recommended to backup your home directory files - it's even essential if your /home isn't on a separate partition.

But you are free to wait one month before upgrading (in order to let the first bugs get fixed) or even to not updgrade. Personally, by the fact that I have a lamp (Linux Apache PHP MySQL) server for my Web development and a bundle of other applications I installed for my Web creation needs, I'm going to wait until the next Long Term Support, which will be 10.04 "Lucid Lynx" will be released next April. Anyway, I have no experience in upgrading, since the one that I had to do (8.04 to 9.04) was a complete reinstall that was necessary because the old system broke.


And for those who wonder about the version numbering, it's pretty simple : It's based on the release's month and year. Thus, the version that I currently have has the number 9.04 because it has been released on April (4th month) of 2009, and the version that has just been released has the number 9.10 because it has been released on October (10th month) 2009. And each version has a codename which is composed of a character trait and an animal (mythic or real) name, and they both begin by the same letter, and the codenames follow the alphabet order. For example, my current version is codenames "Jaunty Jackalope", and the new version is codenamed "Karmic Koala", and the next one will be "Lucid Lynx".

And to finish about version explanation : Every two years, the version that is released on spring ia released as a "long term support" version. The main difference is that while a regular version will have a 18 months lifetime for desktop versions and 3 years for server versions, the Long Term Support version have a lifetime of 3 years for desktop version, and 5 years for server version, so these version are recommended for large deployments such as in public administrations (ex: France's military police) and enterprises, who need stability in their network architecture.

That's the problem with commercial softwares. How many requests were done for a Linux port, but Adobe just doesn't seem to show any sign of Linux port intention, and since its proprietary license doesn't allow anyone except Adobe to do a native Linux port (while the GPL license allowed Gimp to be ported on many OS outside Linux), the only possible alternative is to use Wine which is a Win32 API implementation, but for now, CS3 and CS4 don't work at all (except for portable versions) while CS2 works nicely.

Before you get too addicted to Photoshop, you can start learning Gimp. For this, you'll have to google tutorials, but many of them are written according to an older version (before 2.6) so there will be some differences.
Even if I'm currently writing a big Gimp lesson, it's in French (and on a website that's not mine) and it'll take a while before I can start writing a translation of it. But I can translate the ones I posted on my own website.

Ubuntu is an open-source alternative to Windows and Office.

Thanks Nessa for explaining it better while I lamely failed.

> Amir : Have you ever heard of anxiety disorders ? Because all of this shit that happened was my fault, as I have anxiety disorders and then, I easily anticipate horrible scenarios, just like I did in this case, and each anxiogenic situation makes my anxiety getting worse, and this situation where I got in isn't an exception. This condition is really choking me in every sphere of my daily life, at the point that lately, I have put myself in the pending queue for consulting a social worker, as I couldn't find a psychologist that treats this kind of condition in my area.

Now, I begin to wonder if I should start a thread about anxiety disorders in general...

Just thought i'd bump this topic as i i have found another distro similar to Ubuntu .. It's called Linux mint 8 , a free download and virtually works out of the box. Everything you need is installed with the installation, Firefox, Flash, Java etc...no need to download and install anything to get you started.
It's great for first timers looking at giving Linux a try, Linux Mint 8 is much more user friendly than Ubuntu but works on the same principle.

Yes, I like it but not very much. Ubuntu is a computer operating system based on the Debian GNU / Linux distribution and is distributed as free and open source software.

For anyone trying to get this stuff to work, I can help you out as best I can. I've got Ubuntu 9.04 running right now with Heyu and a CM11A and CM17A (Firecracker) plugged into the same serial port of my desktop. I use SSH to remote into it from my Ubuntu laptop and run Heyu commands ("heyu on a4") remotely. There's no need for VPN nor a graphical desktop at all.

Ubuntu is the one of the fastest growing Linux operating System.Ubuntu is based on the Debian distribution which is the flavor I was considering but was avoiding because
of the long waits between distribution releases.The people behind Ubuntu Linux are committed to the free open source software concept and working hard to get the software out to people to use.

Ubuntu focuses on usability. The Ubiquity installer allows Ubuntu to be installed to the hard disk from within the Live CD environment, without the need for restarting the computer prior to installation. Ubuntu also emphasizes accessibility and internationalization to reach as many people as possible. Beginning with 5.04, UTF-8 became the default character encoding, which allows for support of a variety of non-Roman scripts. As a security feature, the sudo tool is used to assign temporary privileges for performing administrative tasks, allowing the root account to remain locked, and preventing inexperienced users from inadvertently making catastrophic system changes or opening security holes. PolicyKit is also being widely implemented into the desktop to further harden the system through the principle of least privilege.

I'm using Ubuntu 10.10. I've used Ubuntu since the 9.04 version. I'm still pretty hopeless with Ubuntu though, I don't understand commands and all that. I've looked at so many tutorials for different things, but I never understand anything. But Ubuntu works fine for me even so. I kinda don't have any choice anyway, since Vista crashed. My computer works fine now, much better than when I had Vista, so I don't know if I even want to buy a new computer at all, even though my mom nags me about me, lol.

Linux in general is growing in popularity at an alarming rate, millions have turned to Linux as a free open sourced operating system. I myself am using Linux Mint 10 (code name Julia) a fork of Ubuntu but i find Mint much better and so user friendly. It has a faster boot up and shut down time than Windows, apart from Windows 7 which is reasonable.

I highly recommend anyone who is sick to death of thier pc's slowing down, taking ages to load up and getting infected with viruses and malware while using Windows to try Linux. You can download most versions of Linux, burn the ISO image to a cd and boot your pc with a live demo before installing.. you can also make many copies and pass on to family and friends with out it being called Pirated, there's nothing illegal about sharing Linux..unlike Microsoft.

If your a hard core gamer then i suggest you stick with Windows or duel boot, but in the end, Linux Mint is a perfect replacement for an over priced, bloated operating system called Windows.
Try Linux, you will be amazed on how easy it really is. Smile

I run Ubuntu Linux 11.04, after migrating from Microsoft Windows Vista. Truly enjoy it Smile

Especially the Unity interface, while it might not have many customization options out of the box, it sure is a step in the right direction.

Glad to see so many other Ubuntu users on here Very Happy
