  • Create Animations with Inkscape, ImageMagick and FFmpeg
    fade in effect with your text or you can make the typing effect by writing the first letter exporting the frame then the second and so on So for example first frame would be N then Nu then Nux then Nuxi etc The result of all this frame making and exporting should be a folder full of PNG files named from 0 png to XX png depending on how many you ended up making The next step is to just put them together into an actual animation 2 Sticking the frames together into an animation Open a terminal and go into the directory where your frames are For example if your frames are in a folder called animation inside your home folder just type this cd animation Assuming you have the ImageMagick package installed all you need to do now is type something like this animate coalesce delay 9 0 png 1 png 2 png 3 png 4 png 5 png 6 png 7 png 8 png 9 png 10 png 11 png 12 png 13 png 14 png 15 png delay 45 16 png delay 9 17 png 18 png 19 png 20 png 21 png 22 png 23 png 24 png 25 png 26 png 27 png 28 png 29 png 30 png 31 png delay 90 32 png The coalesce option is what sticks together the frame images specified The delay option sets how long should it pause between each frame therefore setting the actual speed of the animation Above it is set to 9 but you can experiment with your own values After that we are specifying the frame files we want to stick together into an animation This is where it helps that we have all the files named by a number You can use tab completion to string them together faster and if you are trying multiple times you can use the up arrow to retry If the command is too big you can even select copy and paste it into a text file where you can more easily tamper with it and then paste it back into the terminal for exection You can even make it into a script in which case you d basically just have to save it as a filename sh make it executable chmod x filename sh and execute it as filename sh assuming you re executing it from the same directory Also notice the delay 45 option before 16 png delay 9 after it and delay 90 before 32 png This makes the frame 16 display five times longer and the frame 32 ten times longer than the rest which are set to delay 9 The reason why delay 9 displays again after 16 png is to return the delay setting back to 9 since the command will follow the last set delay This allows you to control the flow of your animation An alternative way to control the flow is to just repeat a single frame multiple

  • Comparing the Window Managers: Which is Best for You?
    classic GNOME called Nemo Xfce Often seen as an alternative to those who like GNOME but wish for greater speed and flexibility Xfce offers probably the most features and flexibility at best performance It tends to be quite straightforward to intermediary or advanced Linux users It wont hold your hand at every step but is very easy to figure out Xfce doesn t really have a single layout that can be meaningfully called the default since both the official project and distributions which include it frequently put out different configurations and users can very easily change them For example in Xfce the panel can be anywhere you want at any size with any content and functionality you want in it behaving in almost any way you can think of Whether you want a powerful everything and the kitchen sink panel sticking across the full width of your bottom screen edge or a simple OSX like dock with a few application launchers you can have it all Same goes for the main menu It can be placed anywhere and you can even have multiple different ones The appearance can also be customized with many themes for both window decorations and UI elements so it can look like almost anything you want If you like the ability to customize your user interface to your hearts content and do it fairly easily need all of the features you ve come to expect from a desktop environment but want it fast then Xfce is a very strong candidate KDE KDE has historically been one of the two major desktop environments existing from the early days of the Linux desktop the other one being GNOME The two have often inspired classic KDE vs GNOME schisms in the community having taken fairly different user interface philosophies KDE has always focused on being extremely powerful featureful and configurable not shying away from giving users options to tweak even when this seemed to have come at the expense of simplicity and elegance and somewhat increased its learning curve Its power was always hard to ignore however and many appreciated all that can be done with it With the advent of KDE4 it was reinvented through and through with new technologies and designs which marked a tremendous shift for the project which at the time stirred quite a controversy KDE4 is now mature stable and as powerful as ever probably much more so than KDE3 was KDE4 also improved its ease of use to some degree and gave it a much more modern feel KDE has an easily recognizable style First thing that tends to come to mind when thinking of KDE is all the gloss glassy transparency powerful widgets and the sheer power of configurability The motto is that everything you see is a widget and the typical arrangement that it is known for with a Windows like panel at the bottom is just one way of arranging the widgets The panel itself is a widget and the panel can also contain other widgets arranged the way you want them This makes it somewhat like Xfce in terms of flexibility and configurability but with more features and greater integration Every detail can be rearranged and reconfigured even such things as the order of buttons in the title bar where do application menus display which toolbar buttons to display and in what size how fast are all the animations and so on KDE is also very heavy on bling and effects There are animations for everything also configurable and the whole UI tends to be laden with gradients glassy effects glow and shadows It seems to aim for this futuristic cool factor but clearly this isn t for everyone Of course with different themes and configuration options it is possible to pare it down to something less flashy KDE s native apps are worth a mention as well since they tend to be some of the most powerful applications you ll find in Linux in big part because the KDE developers don t shy away from giving you features Considering how much functionality you get it s fair to say they actually manage to do a pretty fine job at still keeping it easy to use KDE s file manager is perhaps the best example of a contrast between KDE s philosophy of high functionality versus the predominant minimalism of the likes of GNOME The thing is a swiss knife for file management supporting virtually every way shape or form of managing files you can think of Another notable example is the Kate text editor which easily competes with some of the best code editors out there including all of the favorites you can find in Windows and OSX So is KDE for you If you want a complete fully featured extremely configurable desktop environment whose default layout resembles Windows and you like its flashy aesthetics then it may very well be If you re a stickler for minimalism then you might want to give others a try Razor QT Razor QT is another relative newcomer to the scene and it is a ligthtweight desktop environment built in the QT toolkit like KDE which may make it a decent alternative for those who like to use KDE apps and tools but want something lighter faster and less flashy The layout is a familiar configuration with a bottom panel and a standard desktop The main selling points are its light weight and speed as well as the use of QT libraries instead of GTK LXDE Another lightweight desktop environment that is very similar to Razor QT but predating it is LXDE This quite simply stands for Lightweight X Desktop Environment Like Razor QT LXDE follows pretty much exactly the same familiar layout The project is aiming to switch to QT as of 2014 and because of this and many similarities between the two projects LXDE may merge with Razor QT into a single environment called LXDEQT Speaking of Razor QT

  • Getting a good grip on Claws – a review for daily use
    of tries I chose Bogofilter and am happy with it The results tend to be different depending on the plugin you chose but you can only choose one at a time obviously Html viewers are another matter I experienced instability issues with the gtkhtml viewer but I may be the only one It is the only instance where I actually had Claws crashing The Fancy Html plugin which embeds the webkit engine solved the problem You might also choose not to use any html plugin But that s for you to decide The Calendar plugin is really useful in an office or business context of use It s a well made lightweight plugin but I have to say that it suffers both from the poor state of interoperability in the groupware world and the fact that it s just that a plugin As a calendar the Vcalendar plugin works perfectly and with one small twist i e Adding its full extension name to the exported version it works seamlessly with Mozilla Sunbird and Lightning This plugin works really well for validation of participation to meetings only if of course you have a recipient whose client can actually understand the messages that are sent to him That s not always the case The plugin can also synchronize with online calendars which comes in handy these days The two limitations I see is that you cannot really have two or more separate calendars and that the calendar view could be very much improved But the existing feature set is already enticing as shown here What s missing very much besides a more complete calendar application is a clearer interface for the address book which I find frugal compared to the one of thunderbird although the address collection and edition is really faster than anything else I ve seen What is also missing is a small task manager plugin of some sort I know that by suggesting this idea I am essentially coining an idea of a feature alreay available inside Claws arch ennemy Novell Evolution But it does not have to be as heavy as Evolution to ship such a feature I have read the Claws Planet regularly and witnessed the efforts made to have Claws interact with Tomboy In my opinion however it s only geared to one application only and does not really address the need for a small task manager with notifications that would sit inside Claws I would tend to look for it elsewhere if it weren t for the fact that if there s a calendar plugin already available it would make sense to have a task manager plugin as well But I also know that Free and Open Source Software are a do ocracy so anyone who wants to have a shot at it is welcome Last but not least a word on the distribution Claws has versions available for Windows and Mac OSX although it does not seem to follow the same pace as the

    station is considered an attack site thanks to Google My two domains have been diagnosed and said they didn t find anything yet firefox is still showing that phishing message How could this be Why is this happening Now everyone in the world will never ever consider checking my website once they use firefox this is just plain ridiculous Well I have the same issue my site which is just a comic book website Iberianpress com was waved as an attack site What s worse is that after clicking on the link to see the problem it said that there was nothing wrong with site that it was cleaned Worst yet this is going to damage the sales of my new book because this is a critical pre order month for our new book They seem to have blanket blocked anything at hometown aol co uk That s messing with an awful lot of people And so on and on It s clear that this thing could be causing more harm then good If Google is gonna take it upon themselves to so obnoxiously label sites which supposedly offer malicious downloads then what are firewalls antivirus programs and malware scanners for Not to mention Linux users could care less for this feature since most malicious software doesn t affect them yet as many of them are users of Firefox they get to be dealt this crap as well Given how disfunctional this is it should at best be merely a firefox extension not an integrated feature enabled by default How am I to continue supporting the growth of Firefox if they re gonna chalk it up to Google to control what sites we should visit They re putting us in a position from which supporting Firefox is getting to be
