Triple boot help with latest Ubuntu distro on Apple Mac book Pro with Bootcamp.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 30, 2011
I am using Bootcamp with a dual boot function with Mac OSX Snow Leopard and Windows 7. I now want to introduce a 30gb partition for the latest Ubuntu Distro.
I really want to be careful to ensure I dont break anything as it works perfectly at the moment. I have used Rfix and Bootpicker to manage the dual boot processes as well as using the option key in Bootcamp to boot into each OS.
Does anyone have any advice how I could create a new partiton for me to use for Linux. I want to make a 30gb partion.
Any step by step instructions would be fantastic. I really want to improve my Linux skills and want to run it natively rather than thru a virtual machine using VMware or Parallels.
Coloring book for Kids on Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 11, 2009
Does anyone know any Coloring book software for Linux? I just wanna know if there is any kind of application like that, where kids can color some pictures by choosing the color and clicking on it, you know? Maybe mixing the colors all together too...
Of course there are some for Windows, but I wanna replace that, so my daughter can use it on Ubuntu.
Recommendations for good admin reference book?
location: linux.com - date: June 30, 2011
I am hunting around for a good desktop reference guide to Linux administration. I can of course use the Internet and man pages, but sometimes I prefer to have a reference book. There are a lot of books out there, but I thought you might have a favorite you'd like to recommend. I want something that's basic but detailed and has useful practical examples that explain common Linux system programs and utilities. My main interest is in managing and optimizing my own personal computer (mainly file system and memory management, not networking). Examples would be how, why, and when best to use programs such as top (htop), ps, vmstat, dstat, grep, bash, vi, apt, etc for analyzing, monitoring and tweaking. I am also very interested in kernel optimization and compiling. Great if I can buy it for less than $30 or so. I will be using Ubuntu and/or Debian on my new laptop which has an i7 quad processor and an SSD drive., if that makes any difference, as well as an old junkie laptop for experimenta
NEWS: Ubuntu & Audible Book Format
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 15, 2009
So I just though I would share this, maybe create some buzz. I just got off the phone with Audible customer service, having to cancel my membership after learning I can't use Audible on Linux. As it turns out, talking to my customer service agent, Audible IS working on bringing the goods to the table for all of us Linux users after all....and the best part, they got their eyes on Ubuntu. HELL YEAH! WOOO!
[SOLVED] Gujarati Input in Ubuntu 11.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 4, 2011
I have installed Ubuntu 11.10. I have installed gnome-shell in my pc. I want to write in Gujarati in ubuntu. In Ubuntu 11.04 I was able to do so.
I found the following
1) In Language Support>Add/Remove Language there is no choice to install translation/input methods/extra fonts as that was in old ubuntu
2) After Installing 'Gujarati' And 'Hindi', The translation of my desktop was working as normal, but iBus was not showing Gujarati or Hindi. It was showing only Chinese which was no use of me. Additionally I never installed chinese.
Good Book for beginners?
location: linux.com - date: December 14, 2010
Hi, I was wanting to learn more about Linux and possibly some Bash scripting. I'm not sure which book would be best for me, though.
So, I was thinking about "Beginning the Linux Command Line" because it seems like that is most of the command line knowledge I would need and the basics of Bash. What I'm asking is what are all of your personal recommendations?
I've got a budget of about $35 so not really looking to get something like the Linux Bible.
Thanks for any suggestions.

Ubuntu Server 12.04.2 LTS noobie looking for book recommendations / help.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 30, 2013
I'm brand new to Ubuntu and Ubuntu server 12.04.2 LTS and I'm looking for a good current Ubuntu server 12.04.2 LTS book and other tutorial recommendations.
I need to learn EVERYTHING from the ground up. I've never used or configured an Ubuntu or Linux server before.
On Amazon there are a few Ubuntu server books:
By Sander van Vugt.
But this book was written with Ubuntu server 7.04 back in 2008.
Has a lot changed from Ubuntu server 7.04 to Ubuntu server 12.04?
Should I not buy this book because it's so old?
Here's another book by this guy
That one seems to be aimed at 'Pros' and those already familiar with Ubuntu server.
It was also written a long time ago, 2009.
Then there are these books by two authors :
Kyle Rankin, and Benjamin Mako Hill
This first book of theirs was written for Ubuntu server 10.0.4.
Kernel Book; Old Kernel Versions
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 15, 2013
I want to learn about the kernel, but the latest kernel version I see listed in the descriptions of the books I'm looking at is 2.6. Does that matter much? I don't want to learn key concepts that are no longer pertinent, and I'm coming from a n00bish perspective so I won't necessarily recognize out-of-date material when I read it.
