Previews will give users an extra option with results in the Dash – right-click to open a preview pane.

Gnome, KDE, XFCE or LXDE. What is the best? That is a very broad question, so let me try to whittle it down a bit. If you’re coming to Linux for the first time from Windows or Mac, you’re not familiar with the very concept of having different desktops to choose from! The only thing [...]
It’s a pretty simple process, just need to edit three files. For those who don’t know Unity-2D uses qt to draw it. So all we need to do is change a few values in the qml files. Unity-2D lives here: /usr/share/unity-2d. The three files we are going to edit are: /usr/share/unity-2d/shell/Shell.qml /usr/share/unity-2d/shell/common/IconTile.qml /usr/share/unity-2d/shell/launcher/LauncherList.qml Shell.qml Find [...]
Most Linux users probably recognize the “year of the Linux Desktop” as being a bit of a joke, as it sometimes seems like each year someone claims that this year is going to be the year of the Linux Desktop. So much so, that there is even a section dedicated to it on wikipedia. However, [...]

IÂ decided to leaveÂ UbuntuÂ LinuxÂ distribution. I think the version of Canonical Ldta. is no longer effective distribution. His latest version of 11.04 am disappointed with their poor performance. I also have encountered major obstacles to recompile the kernel and Gnome 3 to make it optimal. The large amount of memory needed and the large amount of CPU [...]
