I'm a geek who loves Linux. I do my best to help other Linux users, but oftentimes, I'm the one who needs help.

My personal favorite software:

  • Pale Moon (A Firefox fork with a purpose)
  • VLC (Good media player, easy-to-use but decently powerful)
  • XFCE (Desktop environment, decently lightweight but with a great user-experience)
  • 7-Zip (Archiving program with better compression)

I recommend Linux Mint XFCE edition, Ubuntu, or Xubuntu for those interested in getting started with Linux.

comment Why “sudo apt-get install” doesn't find a package?
Please don't say "newest", as this can change over time. The newest LTS release is 12.04 Precise Pangolin(which I use.) The latest Public release is 12.10 Quantal Quetzal. The latest latest release (as of time of writing) is the 13.04 Raring Ringtal beta. So please edit the proper version into your question. (there is an edit link right above this comment, just to the right of "share".)

comment How do you make USB bootable on chromebook
@mikewhatever Actually, they're Linux-based, once you figure out how to access the Shell, you have access to fdisk, dd, and the whole crew! (yes, even sudo. :)

comment Another question about Netflix on Ubuntu
Ehh, I've tried that, it didn't work very well. Thanks for mentioning that, though. P.S., spoofing DRM isn't illegal if you don't get caught! ;) (JK)

comment Will `sudo reboot` on KVM host gracefully poweroff guest VMs?
Something to think about: a shutdown script that would send some sort of "shutdown all VMs" signal to KVM. The idea needs some fleshing out, but if KVM supports command-line control, it wouldn't be too hard to create a simple shutdown script to do that.

Sorry, then. ;( I'm not very good myself at rounding up libraries... I hope you make it, though! :)

Does it recognize your Wi-Fi adapter at all?

comment Unable to install Skype due to “libxss1 not satisfiable” error
Skype needs quite a few libs to work. Have you tried sudo apt-get update? That usually fixes like the one you're having: "not available, but referred to by another package". Rounding up missing libs can be a real pain sometimes. Good luck!

comment Setting up python to start learning
You know, Code Academy's Python course isn't too bad. It's completely suitable for complete beginners. It also uses Python 2, so you can supplement with other tutorials you may find on the Interwebs. Python is really fun to learn, it also feels somewhat like JavaScript when you're coding it, so moving from HTML to Python is kind of interesting.

comment How do I make apt-get install less noisy?
@Oli If you're absolutely sure you're not going to make your system catch on fire, you could always sudo apt-get upgrade -qq --force-yes > /dev/null. -qq implies -y, as WulfHart said, and --force-yes makes it plow through just about anything.

comment how to install ubuntu? step by step procedure from usb stick
@EliahKagan You know, I think it's time for a haiku, to help clarify the situation: They want to close it. I have the knowledge to help. The battle begins. JUST KIDDING. However, if someone was too lazy to use the search feature, closing a question isn't going to help a thing. If they couldn't be bothere d to search first, what makes you think they'll click on the Duplicate link?

comment Where can I find Chromium binary tarballs?
The prepackaged version of Chromium (in the offical repositories) is like 3 versions stale. If you're going to suggest using prebuilt binaries, you need to mention this guy. Google does offer an official repository for their Chrome browser, but the asker specifically mentioned Chromium (probably because he doesn't want Google breathing down his neck ;)
