Ok, the truth is that these days are not very inspired with titles, unfortunately you will have to settle. Today we talk about speed and SSD / HDD. We will not make the usual benchmark to demonstrate the superiority in speed of solid state disk (it is a fact that it is faster), Instead we understand that it can be useful and economical to add a layer to take care of to communicate the two disks to speed up the process of burning the old HDD.

Anyone who has used Ubuntu at least once in the last years has made the case for Ubuntu One, the cloud service offered by Canonical natively installed on recent distributions of Ubuntu. Ubuntu One is exactly what you would expect from a cloud storage service, and so far has winked at all Ubuntu users sometimes left with no support from the direct competition.
Exactly as Dropbox, SkyDrive, Google Drive, Mega and company allows a subscription for manage a web space remote. The free Basic plan starts from 5GB, acquiring additional functionality, or enrolling their acquaintances through affiliate links is (more…)
More than three years ago I wrote an article about lshw and lshw-gui, a program and a GUI that allow us to “see” inside the computer all individual components (CPU, RAM, video card, sound card, network card, etc..). The GUI now has changed its name, it is not more than lshw-gui but lshw-gtk. Apart from that I realize that after more than three years, the article is still relevant and needs no additions. (more…)
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…)
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…)
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…)
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…)
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…)
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…)
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…)
