Ubuntu File Manager
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 9, 2013
I have yet to install Ubuntu. I am now using an aging and unsupported Xandros 4.0, which gets older by the day.
The Xandros File Manager (XFM) lets me see everything on the two hard drives I have and media cards and external USB sticks. I can move things around, install programs, etc. I'm quite happy with it.
What is the Ubuntu File Manager like? Strengths? Weaknesses? Ease of use? What does it look like? Comprehensive?

[SOLVED] Ubuntu Query Manager
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 31, 2007
I'm wondering if there is an open source tool to run queries against Oracle 9i and 10g. The equivalent of sqlplus....
I noticed on the Oracle site that you can download the SQL Developer package, but it is only available in RPM (http://www.oracle.com/technology/sof...sql/index.html)

Interview with Jono Bacon Ubuntu Community Manager
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 18, 2009
This interview with Ubuntu Community Manager Jono Bacon is the first in the LQ Community Manager Interview Series. I'd like to thank Jono for taking the time to do this interview.
Jono, to get us started, can you give us a little background information about yourself?
Sure! I am an Englishman based on the edge of Berkeley, California and I am the Ubuntu Community Manager at Canonical. There I lead a team of three people and we work to grow, enthuse and build a strong worldwide Ubuntu community.
In addition to this, I am also putting the finishing touches on my new book: the Art Of Community (more at http://www.artofcommunityonline.org/), to be published by O'Reilly and also under a Creative Commons license. Outside of my work my other passion is music and I launched the Severed Fifth project (http://www.severedfifth.com/) recently.
How did you get involved with Linux and Open Source, and what was the path that lead to you become a community manager?
Way back in 1998 I first got i
Ubuntu Font Rendering on Debian
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 14, 2013
I'm considering a long-term project that will require long-term use of a desktop distribution. Ubuntu's 9-month release cycle looks to be too short for my purposes, and 12.04.02 LTS doesn't offer what I need.
So, I'm looking at Debian. I did a test installation of the new 7 release (Wheezy).
Font rendering, though, is the issue. It is better out of the box than on earlier releases. But, I won't use it unless I can tweak it to duplicate the font rendering on Ubuntu 13.04, which I'm using at the moment.
Now, how to get Ubuntu font rendering on Debian is a perennial question, and not too popular at the Debian forum. But, I have searched high and low and have not found a decent answer.
By "decent", I mean instructions on applying the Ubuntu patches to Debian code. Presumably, Cairo, fontconfig and freetype need to be patched. (I could handle patching source in conventional fashion, but have no experience patching and building debs the 'Debian Way'.)
If those instruct
New Ubuntu Font For Android. :)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 15, 2012
I remember a month or two ago in the screenshots thread, a couple people asked if it was possible to use the Ubuntu font on an Android device..
I was unsure of how to do it at the time, but a friend from XDA has made it possible (and easy!)
So anyone who wanted the new Ubuntu font for their Android..
Here it is~ http://i.minus.com/1331935575/ZJUTi5...fEFUJ8sxpI.apk

If you're unsure of how to install it, Just ask.
Peace, Love, Ubuntu and Android. lol
HOWTO install fonts using dfontmgr (GUI for defoma, Debian Font Manager)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 5, 2005
This is an incomplete HOWTO about dfontmgr.
As a new Linux user I was rather confused by how to properly install fonts, so I was happy to discover a GUI application, dfontmgr, that acts as a user-friendly(ish) interface for defoma, the Debian Font Manager. I've written some instructions on how to install and use dfontmgr, but I could use some help from the experts to complete this "HOWTO". (More on that later.)
Anyway, here's how to use dfontmgr to install fonts:
First, install (or upgrade) the following packages, using your favorite "apt"-type software (aptitude, apt-get, Synaptic, etc.) with "sudo" or logged in as root:
defoma [Debian Font Manager, installed by default with Ubuntu, but you may wish to upgrade]
defoma-doc [puts doc files in /usr/share/doc/defoma-doc/]
dfontmgr [from "universe" -- graphical interface to defoma]
psfontmgr [from "universe" -- needed if you're planning to add Postscript fonts (I haven't tested
