Tip: How to mount partitions in Linux


It happens in many cases, after installing a Linux system on a hard disk already partitioned, these "partitions" are not installed automatically when system boots. So, that leads to have to mount partition each time you want to use it, which is removed once computer off and when turned back on, we have to be reassembled and so on.



So let's see then how to make partitions on your disk are mounted automatically at startup. Note that in this article we are dealing with Linux partitions with file systems ext2, ext3, etc. The partitions that we use to save documents, movies, music, etc., as opposed to using system partition.

Suppose we have two ext3 partitions, one of which is used by another system and use it to store our data, documents, etc. So, first we are going to do is create mount points for partition that we use for storage.

The directory "/media" is that we use to create directory, which we call "disk" which will be mount point for partition in question. To do so, tipeamos console as follows:

We move to directory /media
  • $ cd /media
We login as root
  • $ su
Create directory "disk"
  • # mkdir disk
Following this, we ensure that owner of that directory is your user.
  • # chown chamberdoor -R disk
Then assign permissions:
  • # chmod 755 -R disk
Once completed these steps, which will prepare directory mount point, we turn to tell system where you have to set up and how each part. To do this edit the file "fstab" found in directory "/etc", as follows:

Open fstab file with your favorite editor, such as: nano, vi or gedit.
  • # nano /etc/fstab
And at end of this file add a line that lists all data partition mounting. That line will look like this:

device/ Mount_point/ file_system/ options/ dump-freq/ pass-num

Where "device" is name of partition is in /dev, and can be called sda1, sda2, etc. We can find out by running following command: "fdisk-l". "Mount Point" refers to directory you created earlier. "File System" just file system of the partition in question, eg: ext2, ext3, etc. "Options" refers to attributes of partition, for example "defaults". "Dump-freq" is a number, indicating to "dump" on backs up the partition, if we leave it to 0 is not taken into account. And "pass-num", which also is a number, tells the program "fsck" to look for errors in partition, if we let it to 0 is not taken into account.

Taking these data into account, add at end of file "fstab" completing course set out above. What would be something like this:
  • /dev/sda5 /media /disk ext3 defaults 0 0
File save changes, reboot PC, and see that once system partition is automatically mounted.

Install Hotot in Fedora


If you've been reading a little bit these days for your feeds, certainly had some article about the new client for Twitter called Hotot.

This new Open Source project has proved a success right out the alpha and any comments on it I'm reading are very positive.

What has attracted most attention was the interface to simulate something like an application for Android or iPhone and of course performance.

The client consists of a single window with icons on the bottom, through which we can scroll through from our timeline, by the terms or private messages.

Also now has extensions to install.

To install on Fedora needed some dependencies and a library that is not in the repositorios.Despu├ęs need to download the source code and run the project.

No need to compile it is written in Python.
  • su -c 'yum install pywebkitgtk python-inotify mercurial python-distutils-extra'
  • git clone http://github.com/engla/keybinder.git
  • cd keybinder/
  • ./autogen.sh
  • ./configure --prefix=/usr
  • make
  • su -c 'make install'
  • hg clone https://hotot.googlecode.com/hg/ hotot
  • cd hotot/
  • python ./hotot/hotot.py

Decorate your desktop with Desktop Art Rhythmbox


Looking for plugins to Rhythmbox, I find this very nice: Desktop Art is a plug-in that shows album cover, the name of song and album name and interpret that we are listening to Rhythmbox, on desktop. In addition, if we pass mouse over it, the buttons appear to advance or rewind song list, and button play/pause, giving us ability to control the audio player from desktop.



This plugin can be configured to define position of screen on which to locate position of text in image, background color, etc.. It should be noted: that supplement works, it is necessary to have a composite manager like Compiz-Fusion enabled.

Desktop Art is written in Python by Mathias Nedrebo, and using Cairo, librsvg, Glade, Pango and GTK+. The code is available via SVN. But then see how to install it.


First of all you need to install subversion, independent of the Linux distribution you are using.

In Ubuntu/Debian:
  • $ sudo apt-get install subversion
In Fedora:
  • $ su -c “yum install subversion”
This done, we can move on to installing Desktop Art

In Debian / Ubuntu:

Create folder where you will stay Rhythmbox plugins
  • $ mkdir -p $HOME/.gnome2/rhythmbox/plugins/
We move to directory created in previous step
  • $ cd $HOME/.gnome2/rhythmbox/plugins/
Download plugin directly to plugins folder
  • $ svn co http://nedrebo.org/svn/rhythmbox/desktop-art
In Fedora:

To have a correct operation of this complement, Fedora is necessary to resolve a dependency, which very well described in Free Range. So for this, do following:
  • $ su -c “yum install gnome-python2-rsvg subversion”
This done, we can continue installation. Create directory within directory Rhythmbox plugins found in user's home folder:
  • $ mkdir -p ~/.gnome2/rhythmbox/plugins/
We move to newly created directory:
  • $ cd ~/.gnome2/rhythmbox/plugins/
Download plug:
  • $ svn co http://nedrebo.org/svn/rhythmbox/desktop-art
Completed these steps, open or restart Rhythmbox and go to Edit -> Add. This opens configuration window Rhythmbox supplements. There Desktop Art option labeled and ready, we'll have plugin working.

Print Edit, edit any website before printing to save




When printing a web site we have problem of leaving unwanted items such as logos, images, text sections, or anything that is not our interest.

We have already discussed some solutions to that as iPrint or PrintFriendly, but today we have another alternative for Firefox users, since it is an extension. Print Edit allows us to edit and delete blocks of a website, to print only what interests us and save on paper and ink.

This extension is available for Windows and Linux,is not compatible with Mac, so they will stay with desire to try, like me.

Tip: How to rip an audio CD with Rhythmbox


For users of Gnome desktop environment, extract tracks from an audio CD is a task as simple as inserting disc into drive and open "Audio CD Extractor." But for those who like to have "one", then we will see how to extract tracks from an audio CD using Rhythmbox, default audio player for Gnome.

Here's how to rip an audio CD with Rhythmbox:
  • First, insert audio CD in question in reader of CDs or DVDs of our team.
  • Automatically, the system prompts you to choose an application to run with CD. We chose "Open Rhythmbox.
  • Once opened Rhythmbox in left pane, under "Devices", we right-click on name of audio CD and choose option "Extract to music library"


  • Once this starts extraction process, whose progress can be seen in bottom right of status bar of Rhythmbox.
  • We hope to complete process and go! As simple as that.
Rhythmbox stores extracted files in folder "music". To open it go to menu "Places -> Music." You will notice also that Rhythmbox default rip format. Ogg. To change default format when using Rhythmbox to extract audio tracks from a CD, go to menu "Edit -> Preferences." Once there, go to tab "Music", where drop-down "format of choice", we can select format you want.

Is this end of status bar in Firefox 4 ?


The development of next version of Firefox continues with full force and it is not uncommon to see news about browser popping up weekly. This time it is a change in user interface application that may leave some users start using confusing. The Mozilla Foundation has chosen to change display of links in status bar of all, to say basics.

For first time in history of browser - if I remember correctly, how links are displayed will change. You know when you pass mouse cursor over a clickable item and appears below page where click will take you? Well then, now that address appears in address bar itself, near directions of tabs.

Rather than explain, see in image:


Mozilla has worked well in this feature, it is nice to see it in operation. Furthermore, the area chosen for new way to display page that opens is not so lacking today in monitors - hence screen resolutions - are greater than ever.

The question is whether change will be retained in final version of Firefox 4.

CoverGloobus, Music on your desktop


Before he had spoken of Desktop Art, which integrated playback buttons and dials your desk. This time I show you something similar, but not equal. It is not same, because it adds more options and integration with desktop is better. Furthermore, another advantage is that it comes from Gloobus Preview Family

The first thing we will do is install it. To do this, open a terminal and add repository with Gloobus Cover
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gloobus-dev/covergloobus
Then update and install with
  • sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install covergloobus
Once installed, you can access it from Applications/Accessories/CoverGloobus:


As you have noticed ... is same but not equal.

Installing HP Printers in Linux


everyone have a growing need: to have a tutorial on an alternative to classic cups and is available by default in Ubuntu. It certainly saves a lot of time, but more of a problem we can generate, because these drivers are outdated.

In case of HP, we can install your printer via cups. But in my case, I have a HP D1660, I had problems from outset to properly activate these drivers. Just did not want to print properly.

So, looking and looking, I learned two things:
  • The close relationship of HP with Linux, which has saved millions of dollars, on one hand and investing in alternatives to conventional solutions that exist for Windows, on other
  • The solution available for Linux as far as concerns Printer drivers, called HPLIP (HP Linux Imaging and Printing). In this way, we can access constantly updated drivers for linux and functional.

The installation steps are detailed below:
Step 1: Download HPLIP driver base

The first thing to do is download installer from set of drivers needed to enable compatibility between printer and Linux distribution available.

To do this, go to her website. Once there, select Download HPLIP, and will lead to a wizard that will request data about its Linux distribution, data from printer and model:


Select Next, and ask you to confirm data. When ready, select Next, and lower installer. Run that weighs about 20 megs:


Once downloaded, and through terminal, navigate to folder where file is downloaded. then writes:

  • sh hplip version?n that you have.Run
And begin to review what you downloaded. Once ready, you will be asked to choose type of installation you want to make (automatic or custom):


Once selected, you will be asked to confirm what distribution you are using:


After that, begin to check connection to Internet:


And start downloading and compiling a series of files. This process will take a lot of time not less. When you have everything ready, you will be prompted to connect USB printer to computer and turn it on. If you had put before you restart PC or remove and relocate port. I preferred to remove and put back port:


Once ready, it will open Setup Assistant, HP. He will ask you to choose how to connect your printer:


Select Next, and select printer model you're connected:


Then add the data to printer, the driver needed. Once finished, select Finish, and go .


We also have printer driver installed, a print wizard that adds a number of options, all configurable.

Among problems I have encountered driver, is that I have problems when you print in economy mode. Paper jams, for reasons still not understood. If they happened and know a solution, I appreciate that comment.

Now my friends, here is tutorial. I hope you learn. Many greetings.

Deep Freeze simple for Linux


Everybody knows what is deep freeze in hasefroch right? It is an application that blocks your disk for anyone to intentional or unintentional damage to your files and folders. So if someone accidentally deletes a folder that you did not want to delete this folder with its contents 'reappear' after restart pc.

For linux we had ever seen Lethe application but never really knew if it was difficult or easy to use but today I want to submit the application Ofris which is very easy to use.

To install it on Ubuntu just have to copy following lines into a console:
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tldm217/tahutek.net
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install ofris-en
And to run only write in a console:
  • ofris-en
Once run will see that using it is very easy in first window tells them what they want "freezer" or block, user may be they are using, another user or all users. It also gives them option to unlock all or view current status of locks.


After choosing appropriate option only need to enter password and go. Tests can be done by deleting files or creating new ones and you will see that when you restart any of these changes are permanent. It is a special application to libraries in universities, cafes and even for your PC if there are many who use it.

Mageia, a fork of Mandriva


though Mandriva has been for me a rather unknown distro, I was reading and it seemed very important to announce new fork they have created.

It is always sad to think that for whatever reason, a Linux distro has an uncertain future.

This is what has prompted Mandriva members to create mageia, but it was not a decision lightly, but well thought out and discussed by staff, contributors Cooker and user communities.

After all ratings, born mageia, which does not belong to any company, but will form part of a community nonprofit, which will form a board with members of community.

These are some of plans and ideas that are at moment, but completely open to any idea that you can contribute:
  • To Linux and free software applications accessible to all
  • Maintain a high level of integration between base system, the desktop (KDE/GNOME) and applications, improving especially integration of third party (whether free or proprietary applications)
  • Aim at new architectures and formats
  • Improving our understanding of users' computers and electronic devices
As mageia community will consist of users or companies, fact is that anyone who knows about subject and is a lover of free software available to colabrorar as far as I can.

There will be designers, packagers, developers, translators, etc ...

For next few days what they need is:
  • Hardware to host code, build servers and datacenters to host these servers
  • Developers, contributors, translators and testers to develop mageia
  • Counsel and advocates for building organization and its processes, etc..
If you are interested in any of fields you can contact them on mailing lists.

Also visit project page if you prefer contact via IRC.

Khweeteur, a Twitter client for N900


If you recently purchased N900 should have discovered that most programs for Twitter available for download do not work, the fault of Twitter itself, which now only accepts signed authorization on OAuth. To resolve this problem, arises Khweeteur, a Twitter client for maemo that works seamlessly with OAuth.



The idea is Khweeteur be as simple as possible, so he has few pictures, showing DMs along with Mentions. In beginning should not be hard to confuse, but appears to be a good option until Meego is finally working with N900 ...

Information about downloading and installing Khweeteur can be found at Program site.

Fedora 14 will use Upstart instead of systemdir


If one of important news of release of Fedora 14 Alpha, had been beginning to use Upstart instead of systemd as session manager, today we finally heard that Fedora 14 will not.

One of great benefits of systemdir to launch system, was possibility of offering a faster boot.

The Fedora Engineering Steering Committee (FESCO), in a discussion through IRC, took decision not to include it, due to problems encountered during recent test day systemd.

The main driver of systemdir, Lennart Poettering, who did not participate in discussion, it was not too pleased with decision, inter alia, because it has apparently already been solved many of mistakes that were discovered during test day.

Although systemdir not be included in final version of Fedora 14 will be released in November, is expected to continue qualifying for incorporating possible errors in Fedora 15.

Anyway, even if not by default in Fedora 14, systemdir still available to install from repositories.

This was possible in early development of Fedora 14, when it was new and Upstart systemd still used by default.

Install Gnome Photo Frame 1.0.1 in Ubuntu


Gnome Photo Frame is an application that allows you to display your photos as a slideshow on your desktop.

The photos can be selected from our local folder or through plugins from image hosting sites such as Flickr or Tumblr.

Besides being able to see photos in full screen, we are able to observe them in a framework which we can supply from its Preferences menu as pixels.


Changes from version:
  • Added support for F-Spot 0.7.x database
We can install in Lucid with deb package as follows here

Install Shotwell 0.7.2 in Ubuntu


Shotwell, manager and editor of graphics that come by default in Ubuntu 10.10 has been updated to version 0.7.2


To have this new version need to have their PPA added to our list of sources. So open a Terminal and run to install following lines:
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yorba/ppa
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install shotwell
If you already have PPA Shotwell added and installed, just need to update:
