1: The pager I am always shocked at how few people actually use the Linux pager. It’s been around forever and has always served the same functionality β€” it offers the user multiple desktops to keep the desktop better organized. I employ the pager like this: With four workspaces, I dedicate each workspace to a different use. My layout looks like this: Desktop 1 is for networking tools.

Changing file associations and default applications in openSUSE / Gnome
· β˜• 1 min read · ✍️ Sathya

A quickie:

I wanted to change the default application from Banshee/Totem for my media files to VLC ( since I didn’t have proprietary codecs installed, and VLC does). Searched all of YaST/Settings and couldn’t find where to change the default application.

Unreal IRC Server files gets replaced with ones containing backdoor
· β˜• 1 min read · ✍️ Sathya
Forum post @ Unreal IRCD We found out that the Unreal3.2.8.1.tar.gz file on our mirrors has been replaced quite a while ago with a version with a backdoor (trojan) in it. This backdoor allows a person to execute ANY command with the privileges of the user running the ircd. The backdoor can be executed regardless of any user restrictions (so even if you have passworded server or hub that doesn’t allow any users in).

[How-To] Get iPhone Internet Tethering Working in Linux
· β˜• 1 min read · ✍️ Sathya
I’ve owned couple of mobile phones now, all in increasing number of features. But the one thing that remained common amongst all of them, was the ability to use a tethered Internet connection in both Windows and Linux. Until I got the iPhone, that is. With the iPhone, I could no longer use the iPhone as a modem in Linux. Not anymore. I was recently researching about claims that Ubuntu could sync with the iPhone, even the non-jailbroken ones.

Mission: Get Bluetooth Stereo Headset Working in Linux. Current Status: EPIC FAIL
· β˜• 2 min read · ✍️ Sathya

I’ve owned a Sony Ericsson HBH-DS970 for nearly 2 years now{#aptureLink_GW9kUit5Kx}, and I use it pretty often with my previous phone ( the Sony Ericsson P1i{#aptureLink_Szc3RZREO3} ), and my current iPhone 3G. I also use it occasionally on my laptop. It has worked fine in Windows XP, Vista & Windows 7. Getting it to work with Linux, however has been an EPIC FAIL. The last time I tried it was probably a year ago, and I just gave up in frustration and continued to use my EP-630 as the earphone.


Changing the GNOME Menu panel in openSUSE GNOME back to Gnome defaults
· β˜• 1 min read · ✍️ Sathya

Seems like lot of openSUSE Gnome users don’t like the new Gnome panel, which is radically different interface from the traditional Menu bar with Applications/Places/System entries. Personally I prefer the new style, perhaps because I’m used to the openSUSE Kickoff panel, and I really dig the search feature
