Some time you might find some applications are having only .rpm files but you want a .deb package for your debian,Ubuntu and other debian derived ditributions.If you can’t find .deb debian package in any of the debian,ubuntu repositories or elsewhere, you can use the alien package converter to install the .rpm file.http://www.debianadmin.com/install-rpm-files-in-debian-and-ubuntu.html

Well, well, well, it's been about 45 days since I last booted in to my XP partition so I decided to shrink it and make space for new partitions in order to install the latest Edgy knot.
Kubuntu is a user friendly operating system based on KDE, the K Desktop Environment. With a predictable 6 month release cycle and part of the Ubuntu project, Kubuntu is the GNU/Linux distribution for everyone.http://www.debianadmin.com/kubuntu-606-lts-installation-with-screenshots.html
Download all parts rar to desired folder.
(unrar e part01.rar)
of course, you must enter the correct filename.
You will only need to unrar the part01.rar.
Unrar will extract and combine all parts and write completed file to your /download/folder/.
If there are broken parts, unrar will not save the combined file.
In that case add the -kb switch.
(unrar e -kb part01.rar)
I clean up the folder using
On the advice of this edition of linux magazine I trialled Mepis for the first time today. Now let me start out by saying that the computer I tried it out on was always going to struggle. It's a laptop supplied by work, and it hasn't exactly got the spec of the century. It's a celeron 1.5Ghz533Mhz processor with 256Mb RAM. By rights I was daft to even attempt a live CD. But the disk does claim to be a "Desktop on Steroids". Having played with it for a good few hours, nothing convinced me to give this a fully fledged go. I wouldn't even trouble my VMWare with it. For starters it's supposed to be based on a Debian/Ubuntu style core.Except that it clearly wasn't made with as much care because even in comparison with a full Ubuntu liveCD, this lags. The first time I madeit in, the system didn't even make it through the desktop load before freezing on me. I booted the liveCD about eight times all in all,

I had been using Kubuntu up until a few weeks ago, but I'm not a great KDE fan soI bought a book with 5.10 distro included and off I went. Great!, installed like a dreamran the updates then it tells me about 6.06. OK!, Pity I did'nt know that before I boughtthe book. Anyhow I decide to download the 6.06 DVD iso image. Three hours later off Igo and install it. New graphic install screens and the whole process is really great.Pick the language, pick the time zone etc., etc., partition my disks, install proceeds,install finishes, I wait to be asked where I want to put GRUB, I wait and I wait and thenwe go into re-boot. I am definitely NOT impressed with the fact that Ubuntu now decideswithout asking me, that my MBR is where it's going to install Grub. I use WINDOWS XPas well as SuSE 10.1 and I want to decide where my boot loaders go. I had to go back againand re-install in text mode to get what I wanted. I'll be staying with text installs until they

I would love the repositories to allow me to easily install Compiz on amd64 with ATI Radeon. I've followed dozens of installation guides, reinstalled everything, and finally given up (for now). My one consolation is that the xserver-xgl package by itself improves/enables transparency in KDE.
I have had Ubuntu installed for about 3 months now and I am LOVING it! I have used debian in the past and have enjoyed it. Ubuntu has taken my favorite distro to the next level.Thanks guys (and gals)!LeeNIX
Hi All,Today, well actually yesterday I installed XMMS player in Ubuntu and it works like a charm. It is very simple to do so. Just go to the Add/Remove program menu from the Ubuntu main menu, and search for XMMS (or amaroK) in the search box. (This program is called Automatix, similar to YaST in SuSE). It searchs for the appropriate app and asks you whether you want to install it. Once you say yes, it downloads the app to your PC and then installs it. You can then access it from Applications>XMMS. It plays MP3 files without any glicthes. I will soon post shot by shot on how to install XMMS in your PC in Ubuntu. I have also posted this in our forum ... so check it out also.The link is
