Donât like an Ubuntu application? Swap It out with one of these alternatives

,----[ Quote ]
| The default selection of applications in 
| Ubuntu are great for most people but it 
| would be foolish to think that one size fits 
| all. To make it easier for you BLAH showing 
| the most popular alternative to a default 
| applicationâ. install-on!


Krank, for when Ubuntuâs novelty wears off

,----[ Quote ]
| Most of the Internet is probably absorbed 
| with Ubuntu 10.04 right now, and thatâs a 
| good thing. When you get tired of messing 
| with the location of the buttons, you can 
| check out Krank, which is a rather unusual 
| game.
| [...]
| Krank is in the repos for Karmic and Lucid, 
| and in AUR for Arch. When the luster of 
| 10.04 begins to wear off, give it a spin.


GNOME-integrated, IAX-compatible VoIP client for Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| Their setup requires that I can connect to 
| their PHP/MySQL/SVN setup through SSH. No 
| problem with Ubuntu. But I am also required 
| to have an IAX-compatible VoIP client so my 
| boss and other programmers can call me. You 
| see, most VoIP clients are only SIP-
| compatible. IAX and SIP are just two 
| different protocols for running Voice over 
| IP.


Linux File Managers Roundup

,----[ Quote ]
| If the default doesnât work for you, how do 
| you find the best replacement? How do you 
| know if it will work in your favorite 
| desktop environment? In this guide weâll 
| cover many of the most popular file managers 
| for Linux and include the details to help 
| you decide which one is right for you.


That split-second realization

,----[ Quote ]
| It happened to me again yesterday. That 
| moment everyone talks about, when a GUI 
| program is suddenly inconvenient and 
| obtrusive, and you realize that the console 
| alternative is just plain faster and easier 
| than clicking buttons and waiting for an 
| interface to accomplish the same task.


Linux screenshots made easy: Shutter & Screenie

,----[ Quote ]
| Do you own a Mac? I use both MacOS and Linux 
| everyday, and found myself with a problem. 
| Before I found Shutter taking screenshots in 
| Linux felt like a PITA. In MacOS you can 
| take region screenshots by pressing Cmd-
| Shift-4. And I missed this feature in Linux, 
| until I cared enough to look for a solution.
| Shutter was the answer, an open source 
| screenshot grabber that fills my needs, and 
| probably yours too. Installing is relatively 
| simple, if you have an updated version of 
| Ubuntu. If not, you'll have to manually add 
| the launchpad repositories. All instructions 
| are on Shutter's homepage.

Hulu Desktop for Linux Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Hulu is one of the most popular video sites 
| on the web. You can watch all kinds of 
| different television shows and movies right 
| in your browser. But there's also another 
| way to watch Hulu and that's to download the 
| Hulu Desktop application for Linux.
| [...]
| The Hulu Desktop for Linux interface is 
| really geared toward using a remote control 
| for navigation (obviously that's the main 
| reason they created this application in the 
| first place). If you've ever used Apple TV 
| or Boxee, you'll know what I mean. You can 
| certainly use a mouse or a trackball but it 
| feels weird as you have to move up or down 
| through the interface to choose a category, 
| subcategory and then the program or movie 
| you want to watch.
