many users find a sense of pride in their unique configuration settings and want an easy way to share them with friends. That’s where rcm steps in.
rcm is a “rc” file management suite (“rc” is another convention for naming configuration files that has been adopted by some GNU/Linux programs like screen or bash). rcm provides a suite of commands to manage and list files it tracks. Install rcm using dnf.
2018/11/07: Selenium is a great tool for browser automation. With Selenium IDE you can record sequences of commands (like click, drag and type), validate the result and finally store this automated test for later. This is great for active development in the browser. But when you want to integrate these tests with your CI/CD flow it’s time to move on to Selenium WebDriver.
WebDriver exposes an API with bindings for many programming languages, which lets you integrate browser tests with your other tests. This post shows you how to run WebDriver in a container and use it together with a Python program.
There are at least 4 Types of desktop (.desktop) files in Linux distributions: action type, application type, link type, menu type. Examples of application and link types are illustrated on the right. These two images can be used as templates for all .desktop files of these types. An action type was shown in Section 2 above and a menu type is illustrated by mb-menu.desktop from the madebits action collection described in Section 2 above. Anyone can construct a desktop file with any text editor (leafpad, geany, ...), and then move it (as root) to any directory. The significance of the contents is the following:
The 16 best openbox-pcmanfm pipemenu entries are illustrated in an open schema-root-menu in the image below. They are primarily in the groups labeled Places and Pipe Menus. The two exceptions are Monitor Settings and Html. Monitor Settings is one of the 16 pipe menus, and Html is written as a Category in the schema. Several of these pipe menus are simply sub-schemas and could be directly written into the root menu schema in the form of a category, as was done with the Html submenu.
2000/01/26: I got tired of configuring half a dozen separate filetype/handler systems for individual applications and wrote the Launcher to centralize type/handler managment across all my applications. Since the Launcher is a command-line program (with a separate GUI process) it can used as a drop-in replacement for every type/handler pairing in most applications. Launcher is an attempt at an all-in-one file handling solution for use with any software that uses file type to file handler mappings. This utility is the one point of configuration for programs like netscape, the dfm filemanager, tkArchive, tkmail, or any other software that uses filetype/handler pairs. Features include multiple type-discovery methods, apache mime.types parsing for extension mapping, and GUI-based disambiguation. Launcher uses it's own type-to-handler mapping file which is much more flexible than metamail's .mailcap. Unfortunatly the two are not compatible.

How to choose an operating system for your computer and how to run it there.
Even the simplest Linux desktop has its advantages and disadvantages.
It's well known that the Android platform relies heavily upon Linux. With this in mind, it makes perfect sense that Android and Linux should be able to seamlessly communicate on the desktop layer. For the most part it does. You can easily drag and drop files between your desktop and the Android device. However, when it comes to syncing things like contacts and calendars 226148128 if you're not ready to do a bit of work, your best bet is to keep your head (and your desktop) in the cloud.
Apple's latest operating system OS X Yosemite pushes the limits of data collection tolerance: its desktop search tool Spotlight uploads your search terms in real time to Apple's remote servers, by default. Fortunately for Apple's angry users, however, this is one privacy invasion that's easy to cut short.
ExaGear Desktop from Eltechs promises compatibility between open source x86 and ARM platforms using virtualization, at speeds much greater than QEMU's.
2014 isn't a year about brand new innovation in mobile and cool new things. It's the year that mobile puts the final nail in the coffin of everything that came before. It's the year where mobile is all grown up and focused on rapidly expanding that growth to eat everything that has come before it.
The Lightweight Qt Desktop Environment
In this article, the author brings together the information so far known on the KDE4 "semantic desktop" and indicates that from his perspective, the principal problem is the removal of "choice". Since disabling of the "semantic desktop" automatically leads to disabling of the KDE email client KMail, the article explains how Thunderbird can be installed to replace the KDE email client. The startling news that Nepomuk is to be discarded is also briefly discussed.
