Start a program with GUI remotely via SSH

You not often have to start an application on a remote machine that requires the use of GUI, more widely in applications to launch and “turn” in background, but it can always happen. I'm thinking for example to those who use a computer as a multimedia station (with XBMC setup is very simple) or even just to experience.

Suffice it to say that you can do, but it is necessary to direct the GUI application to a screen in particular. (more…)

Enable the plugin “zen coding” su gedit

For those who do not know, gedit is the text editor of choice for any Linux distribution based on Gnome. It is preinstalled on most Linux distributions, with the exception of those based on different window managers from Gnome (Where, xfce, enlightenment, etc..). It serves mainly for editing configurations in the system files, but supports a large number of programming languages ​​and is expandable with plugins dedicated.

For this reason, before use Brackets, I used Gedit also for editing HTML and CSS.

This is gedit. (more…)

Brackets: l’editor “of” and “to” HTML / CSS e JavaScript

Ok, the title is not very good, but I did not know how to explain in a few words Brackets need to write code HTML, CSS and JavaScript, and is also written in HTML, CSS and JavaScript. You are already going to the loop, true?

Personally, for writing HTML and CSS I have always got on well with Gedit, the built-in editor in Gnome. Scelsi Gedit for the interface without frills and the ability to customize (also extending its functions through plugin). The basic settings are sparse, but “wandering” between the preferences you can enable different functions to make it a complete editor. (more…)

Modify users and groups in the new versions of Ubuntu

It can happen for any reason a user (System Administrator) should put his hand to groups in the pc. It can happen for any reason, or program that requires them to change (VirtualBox, Wireshark, etc..). With the new release of Ubuntu, it was decided that the software had reached a maturity that can be administered without user intervention groups, it was decided that the average user does not need to know that there are groups, nor to change them. Remain valid all the terminal commands, but a GUI does not exist. (more…)

Photoshop CS6 in Linux

Today is one of those thorny items that do not speak exclusively of open source software, but try to bring business users to Linux and open source in general. As you may have guessed from the title today install PhotoShop CS6 its Linux.

Obviously this blog is terraced AGAINST hacking. If you do not have a legal version, regularly purchased PhotoShop might as well change blog, because of the following do not apply in your case. (more…)

LibreOffice from terminal: convert to PDF

With today's article we complete the article in the 31 May concerning the Printing from Client to Server, no drivers whatsoever. Perhaps not everyone knows that LibreOffice and OpenOffice integrate between their packages some commands from flipping through the terminal. These commands are identical for all operating systems (you, for Windows) and produce the same results. Among these we see today is the syntax for convert any file type through terminal opened with LibreOffice / OpenOffice in PDF.

The command for Linux is as follows: (more…)

M5S: we need an open source software

With today's article I'm going a little’ off-beat, but do not want to open a flame with the subject Movement 5 Location, I just simply observe the facts. I see today that expelled through an online vote, with the 65% majority, Adele Gambaro, a senator of M5S with which I have no ties of any kind. Perhaps not everyone knows that if the Gambaro did not want to resign could continue to occupy the chair that already occupies, although consistency wants you to resign.

My opinion, however, no political vuol'essere, but only a reflection (more…)

Cut a section of video with ffmpeg

The article by vuol'essere today a reference for those who want cut a video from one point to another with ffmpeg ( then using the terminal). Strange, true? To change what products we use highly graphical far more graphics you can imagine.

Often the video is too long to be cut, and a full program (with gui and all) consumes too many resources and slows down the system.

The syntax is very simple, in a single line of terminal (more…)

automatically print, with file upload on Linux servers

In today's article I deal with printing. After I compared the various requirements of customers, I came to theorize the idea that the user (utonto) should have to have everything ready. Less software or drivers will be installed, will be more happy and will be less annoying to those who have something else to do.

The illumination came to me sifting between the printer settings that we have in the office. In one of the menus I see that you can upload the PDF to print on the printer's internal memory to print automatically. (more…)

OpenKiosk: un browser “nato” for internet point

Years ago I became interested in creation of an internet point using an older pc and a any linux distribution. On that occasion I used Opera, a free browser (the open source) that integrated and integrates still one of the best ways “kiosk“.

Since then it's been almost three years, Opera has evolved and continues to integrate the kiosk mode, but steadily growing new projects open source they make their way.

I'm talking about OpenKiosk. (more…)
