(K)Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon

About two months ago Ubuntu 7.10 aka “Gutsy Gibbon” was released and I couldn’t resist… So I first gave the KDE flavored amd64 version of Kubuntu a chance which worked very good. Out of curiosity I recently changed to Ubuntu with Gnome desktop.

As Linux is my main OS I always wanted to make my USB DVB-T stick work with it. Luckily this worked and thanks to some very good HOWTOs (look here and here) I managed to watch TV with Etch. First of all you should have a look at the Em2880 wiki and see if your USB device is supported. Then make sure those packages are installed on your system:



WP Theme "MDAGM" released

2007-11-17 18:53:00 +0100

This is the release of my first Wordpress theme: “Modernpaper Dark And Green Mod”. As already mentioned, it’s based on “Modernpaper 1.0” by Performancing, so most of the credit goes to them.



A new theme - again

I was still looking around for a new Wordpress theme and finally found one which I liked: “Modernpaper” by Performancing. The layout is simple and clean and the only thing I didn’t like was the color scheme. I wanted something darker with some green in it. So I started changing Modernpaper’s css file here and there and did some minor modifications to the top navbar and a few other elements: when reading a post in single view it’s tags are now listed at the bottom. What came out at the end was “Modernpaper-dark-and-green-mod” theme. You may download it soon!



Installing sidux

As already mentioned, sidux is a pretty nice Linux distro and I’m beginning to like it a lot! I’m running sidux for quite a while now and thought I’d share some of my experiences. So, this is how I installed sidux on my 64bit AMD box and how it worked for me.

As always, download the image (if you do a fresh install, always get the latest image!), check it’s md5 sum and burn it. The sidux manual says it’s very important to burn the image in DAO mode and not faster than 8x. Yes, they really stress on that!
