Linux update

I've recently updated my computer to the latest stable Ubuntu version, which is Ubuntu 6.10. The new release works very well and it starts up quickly; the shut down, on the other hand, takes some time.. but who cares :-)

Using qiv (Quick Image Viewer) I've run into a bug: qiv fails to start due to a GDK error. The bug is known and there is an easy workaround:


$ export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1
$ qiv somefile.jpg


After exporting the variable XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS, qiv works properly. (To be precise, the bug is in a library used by qiv, not in qiv itself)

iPod
By the way, I tried to connect the iPod to my "Linux powered" notebook. And? It is recognised right away, no need to install dirvers, iTunes or whatever else. You can just drag & drop the song you want to add, and that's it! Powerful.

Open source is an alternative
Are you looking for an open source alternative to a commercial program? It's very possible that you will find one on Open Source As Alternative, a very reliable website that lists the best open source alternatives to the most popular commercial software.
