Creating Web Pages with Nvu

The newbie GNU/Linux mag. - Tue, 27/02/2007 - 3:13am

This article by Daniel Bartholemew originally appeared in TUX Magazine, Issue 14.

We know you "could" create web pages by just typing HTML into a text editor or word processor. For those of us that have done this, we also know how much we don't want to ever have to do it again. There are many expensive tools that allow you to create pages without even knowing how to spell HTML. But, expensive may also not be something you are looking for.

Mango Parfait -- from TUX 12

The newbie GNU/Linux mag. - Wed, 14/02/2007 - 2:21pm

This Mango Parfait column appeared in TUX Magazine issue 12.

I couldn't figure out how to classify it. It is a How-To but it is an Opinion but ... I picked Opinion to warn people that if they think Gnome is great and KDE sucks they will probably not be able to handle her humor. On the other hand, if a Gnome user wants to know how to set up working directories in applications links, set up a multi-boot system, or think front page is something from a proprietary software company rather than a adjective and noun, you will probably find this article useful.

Using Scribus to Publish a Newsletter

The newbie GNU/Linux mag. - Wed, 14/02/2007 - 12:58am

This article by Donald Emmack first appeared in TUX Magazine, Issue 13.

If you have ever used a word processor to create a newsletter you probably felt like someone tied at least one of your hands behind your back. While word processors are very important tools (and Linux systems tend to come with their share) they aren't designed to give you the kind of control you need for a newsletter.

Customizing KDE with KDE-Look.org

The newbie GNU/Linux mag. - Fri, 09/02/2007 - 1:37am

This article by Jes Hall originally appeared in TUX Magazine Issue 11.

While KDE has a reasonable default look and includes lots of ways to customize it, many people are always looking for one more thing you can change. In this article Jes talks about wallpapers, icon themes, mouse cursors, color schemes, splash screens and themes.

The web site KDE-Look.org supplies the pieces and Jes tells you want you can do. Download the PDF below.

KDE Instant Messaging

The newbie GNU/Linux mag. - Mon, 05/02/2007 - 1:32am

This article by Jes Hall originally appeared in TUX Magazine, Issue 10.

There are an assortment of programs for Linux that do various types of Instant Messaging. Gaim seemed to have the head start is the "do everything" category and has been my tool of choice for using a secure Jabber server. If, however, you want to stick to KDE applications, Kopete is the "approved" answer.

Promoting Free Markets

The newbie GNU/Linux mag. - Wed, 31/01/2007 - 4:39pm

In this article which originally appeared in TUX Magazine issue 9, I talk about my experience with a web site that seemed to not be Linux-friendly. It turned out that the vendor was Linux-friendly and wanted to address the problem rather than pretend that "if it works with IE, it is correct".
