IO Profiling of Applications: MPI Apps


TerminalRun Firefox Addon Allows You To Run Shell Commands From Websites Via Right Click [Linux]

,----[ Quote ]
| TerminalRun and FoxRunner are two similar 
| Firefox extensions for running a command from 
| a website in a terminal. Because FoxRunner 
| didn't work for me (but it seems to be 
| working for most people so you can try it if 
| you want), I'll review TerminalRun.

,----[ Quote ]
| That makes Shotwell the only Gnome photo 
| manager which supports exporting photos to 
| all of the 3 services: PicasaWeb, Flickr and 
| Facebook.


Applications and bundled libraries

,----[ Quote ]
| Package installation for Linux distributions 
| has traditionally separated libraries and 
| application binaries into different packages, 
| so that only one version of a library would 
| be installed and it would be shared by 
| applications that use it. Other operating 
| systems (e.g. Windows, MacOS X) often bundle 
| a particular version of a library with each 
| application, which can lead to many copies 
| and versions of the same library co-existing 
| on the system. While each model has its 
| advocates, the Linux method is seen by many 
| as superior because a security fix in a 
| particular commonly-used library doesn't 
| require updating multiple different 
| applicationsânot to mention the space 
| savings. But, it would seem that both Mozilla 
| and Google may be causing distributions to 
| switch to library-bundling mode in order to 
| support the Firefox and Chromium web 
| browsers.


Claws Mail: Mail with Attitude

,----[ Quote ]
| Want to take full control of your email? 
| Tired of the limitations of Webmail, or GUI 
| clients that are designed for users who only 
| get a handful of emails every day. Itâs time 
| to bring out the heavy guns and start using 
| Claws.

,----[ Quote ]
| Jabber, also known as XMPP, is used by Google 
| Talk, LiveJournal, Portugal Telecom and 
| Facebook also recently allows you to chat 
| using XMPP.


Snap Spiffy Linux Screenshots with Shutter

,----[ Quote ]
| Snapping a quick screenshot is a capability 
| you get out of the box with most current 
| Linux distributions. Hit the Print Screen 
| function key, and you should see a dialog box 
| pop up with a capture of your entire screen. 
| For GNOME users this typically launches 
| gnome-screenshot while Kde will bring up 
| Ksnapshot. Both tools are similar in 
| functionality and get the basic job 
| accomplished.
