Last week I was updating Ubuntu. At the same time I tried to install some new Controls theme. Ended up with mess in the main Ubuntu panel, wondering how it happened and how will I recreate its previous stage.
Most of the people I know buy computers for two reasons. First is browsing Internet, the second one to use Word and Excel. But they don’t realize they need to pay for office applications from Microsoft and so I’m offering a free alternative.
The times of “analog” communication are almost gone, replaced with digital counterpart. Do you have the right tools to communicate via e-mails, internet phone services or sending short instant messages to your friends?
This is just a quick tip for those, who are getting tired of thumbnail previews of open websites in new Opera 10.50 on Windows 7 taskbar. I’d say this really isn’t good feature to have turned on by default. Can get very annoying very quickly.
Probably the most used and important program on your computer, except webbrowser, is file manager. Again, the Windows included Explorer is not capable enough so I will tell you something about its replacements. Besides I’m focusing also on good file compression / decompression tools.
With this short procedure you can try to repair the Ubuntu Linux installed by Wubi when it doesn’t work and screen displays just “sh:grub>”. The error occurs for example system update or when some changes are made in Grub (Ubuntu’s loader). In most cases you’ll be able to resolve the problem.
Burning CD and DVD in current versions of Windows is not that big deal as the operating system itself offers this ability. Even, there could be some basic burning software preinstalled on your computer when you bought it. But sooner or later you can find yourself in a situation where these programs won’t help…
It’s time for some tutorial during Christmas. How about maximizing the browsing space in Opera by switching off the menu bar? That way you are able to display whole Xmas e-card without scrolling the window ;)
