Google Chrome (Beta) for Linux Is Officially Available

Hello,

Though Linux users could test the popular browser for a couple of months through unofficial Chromium builds, yesterday, June 4th, Google announced the first official release of Google Chrome for Linux. The version 3.0.183.1 is still very unstable and lacks a lot of features.

One of Chrome’s main advantages over other web browsers is the way it handles tabs as separate processes. Why is this important? Well, if a web page crashes, it doesn’t take the whole browser with it, but only the tab it was opened in, significantly increasing overall stability.

Installation guide for eGroupware on Ubuntu Server

One of the biggest demands for server installation is the groupware suite. There are plenty of them available. From Exchange to Zimbra (and everything in between), you will find groupware suites of all types, sizes, functionality, and reliability. One of those suites that I have found to be a bit better than most is eGroupware. Although eGroupware is not the easiest to install, it doesn’t come close to the complexity of installing Zimbra. And eGroupware has all of the features users and administrators would expect of a powerful groupware suite (and more!):

  • Calendar
  • Email
  • Contacts
  • Documents
  • Project management
  • Time sheet
  • File manager
  • Wiki
  • News
  • Polls

All of this is packed within a very user-friendly interface. But, as I said, the installation isn’t the easiest. It’s time-consuming and requires that numerous dependencies be resolved before the installation can be completed. The good news is that most of the dependencies will be spelled out for you during the installation process.

Below, I’ll walk you through the installation process with illustrations of the screens you will encounter.

eGroupware installation steps

The installation outlined in this article assumes the base operating system is a clean Ubuntu Server 9.04 installation with networking up and running. And, because of the nature of this base operating system, the initial installation will be done from the command line. I will also refer to the example IP address 192.168.1.10 for this server.

6 of the best media burners for Linux

Introduction

Back in the day, a custom audio CD with the best love songs made a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift. Now she’d hardly be impressed.

You’d need to throw in the holiday videos and make sure it works on the high definition plasma to sweep her off her feet.

That might sound like a lot of work, but it’s a job you can get done with almost any Linux CD/DVD burning app.

That’s because most writing apps are equally capable of putting data on optical media as they are at retrieving it. And some apps don’t just do brute force ripping – they also have decent transcoding abilities and give you quite a bit of control over the end result.

In addition to normal CDs and DVDs, almost all apps can handle rewriteable (RW) and dual-layer double-capacity versions. Although high-capacity discs and their respective Blu-ray and HD DVD drives aren’t very common, if you own one, you can find at least a couple of applications for Linux that will put it to good use.

Since all distros come with a disc burning app, they get a lot of attention to make sure they integrate into their native environment and don’t look out of place. When you put in a blank CD, the burner should pick it up and ask you what kind of data you’d like to burn.

Yet despite all the glitz, the same age-old tools are chugging away at the back-end, giving the front-end apps approximately equal powers. So, how do the various disc burning apps stack up against each other and which one should you trust with your data? Let’s spin ‘em up and find out.
