Some audio plugin: LinuxDSP

LINUXDSP

Plugins are add-on modules that "collaborating"With the main program will extend the functionality. Let us take as an example Firefox. Firefox is a web browser very reliable, very safe (fra i più sicuri), which also draws its strength from the simplicity of installation and use of third-party plug-ins available on the official website largely the same.

But today we talk about plugin certainly less known, and production-oriented audio. Today we talk about LinuxDSP.

Linux e are

loremipsum

In this guide I will explain a few small things that new users GNU/Linux. Those coming from the Microsoft world will be used to having to fiddling with fonts and characters various so completely irrational. The creators of Windows XP in esteem it had released a software simple to use, but in reality (as we shall see) is not always so. An example is the 'font installer. To install a font on XP you need to go to the folder "characters", cliccare su "File" - "Install New Font" and finally choose from a file manager that we want to install the downloaded font.

This procedure should be repeated all the times that we have to install a different font. If we had 100 fonts to be installed should repeat the procedure 100 times. So much for simplicity.

lacie_hd

A few years ago I bought a USB Disk sternum because of the limited space that I could offer to the files inside the computer (and also for me some healthy backup at regular intervals), and I opted for a nice LaCie the 1tb memory. I'm talking about even a few years ago, it was in fact the most capacious hard on the consumer market.

Just today, despite the apparent normal ignition, I realize that in addition to the classic blue light indicates that the operation of the device, he's added una rossa that certainly does not make me hopeful. I'm going to ripescarmi the PDF manual that I had lungimirantemente copied to my hard drive and I find that the red light indicates a disk error.

vncOSXvnc

In today's post we see how access to a desktop GNU / Linux (which we will call "server") da un pc GNU/Linux o Windows (which we will call "client") with VNC. For today's article, I draw inspiration from an interesting post in English.

Log in to a desktop GNU / Linux from a any other system, located in a anywhere (LAN, internet) using VNC is relatively simple. The result can be obtained regardless of operating system used (GNU/Linux, Windows the Mac OS X). One of the most interesting features is that this procedure can be implemented in a free with a small expenditure of time and without being experts.

One of these functions is evidenzeare the whole URL of a site with a click anziché due.
