Audio Book Creator?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 28, 2013
Does anyone know of a Audio Book Creator Software that has a GUI that is free or inexpensive?
My wife reads the News and other items for the blind on East Dunbartonshire Radio and wants to create an Audio Book with Children's Stories for blind kids.
I would be grateful for any help on this as it is for a good and worthwhile cause.
Thanks in advance,
Comic Book Speech Bubble creator?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 14, 2011
I make comics every so often and I think I've noticed a gap in the graphics software market (at least from what I know). Namely for speech bubbles.
Now while you can roll your own speech bubbles in anything from Gimp to Photoshop, they take time, are fiddly, usually require you to do the text and bubbles independentally and can be a pain to continually adjust as you try to tweak it the way you want.
What I have in mind is a fast "5 second" solution for this, either as a plugin or standalone application:
1- The person clicks where on the comic they want the text.
2- They type out the text of the character, a word balloon immediately forms around it.
3- By clicking and dragging, the user can resize the word balloon and aim the "tail" of the speech bubble to whoever's talking
4- They will most likely have already set up the style, font and transpanrency of the bubble, so at this stage they can just go onto the next bubble!
I'm sure this has been done before, c

[SOLVED] migrate tablet pc from android to linux?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 23, 2012
Hi, I am planning to buy an android tablet and then install a linux OS. This is so that I can use mono and wine for a particular win app.
Are there likely to be h/w support issues as in some chips supported by Android not being supported by a regular linux (opensuse/ubuntu) distro?
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.
triple boot 2 linux : PC BSD, Mandriva, and Mint 11
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 2, 2011
Hullo! This is my first post here.
Am bit of a newish user of Linux. I just completely erased my Windows in a dual boot setup with Ubuntu 11.10 after destroying the partitions.
Now, I am trying to get to work a triple boot system on one disk.
I installed PC BSD first, without the bootloader. Then Mandriva, then Linux Mint 11, which works fine
Grub 2 loads Mint fine, lists Mandriva, but cannot load it. I only get " a kernel panic not syncing" message. It cannot see the BSD install.
Here is the output of fdisk:

Converting an old Dell PC into a Print Server (?)
location: linux.com - date: January 25, 2011
I have recently acquired an old Dell Dimension 2400 with the intent of wiping the drive and installing Ubuntu on it. After successfully accomplishing this task, I hit upon the notion of converting it from a stand-alone desktop into a print server for use around my house. My goal is to hook it up to an old HP Inkjet printer of mine and be able to print wirelessly via CUPS. What would be the best method for accomplishing this goal?
Intel vs AMD Integrated Graphics for a Workstation PC
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 11, 2012
I've been wanting to build a PC from scratch specifically for basic video capture/editing and general internet usage, and am trying to decide what CPU to purchase. As of now, I've mostly looking at the AMD A10 APUs and Intel Core i3 CPUs, since their pricing is very similar, and I'd like the keep the cost of the build down as much as possible, since this is more of a hobby build and not an actual profession.
I'm still a bit of a Linux newbie, so I'm not familiar with the state of GPGPU on Linux. I don't know if there are even applications that make use of it, or if the video drivers for either of these two solutions supports it. If not, I guess it comes down to which would offer better performance in a multithreaded environment. Does anyone have any advice as to what would be the best choice here? Thanks.
