First of all, let's talk about desktop eye-candy. After much pain and suffering, I decided to go with Beryl. Compiz was buggy and crazy. I really don't give a darn about cubes and desktop switchers. I just wanted a transparent appearance for for my windows, which you can see below.
As mentioned briefly before, I've broken down and installed Innotek's Virtualbox because several of my favorite programs, Like Macromedia (not Adobe) Fireworks 8, were a bit buggy under CXOffice.
I still can't seem to get network printing worked out with our Dapper box, which is hosting the printer. Perhaps I can break down and attach the printer to my Studio box. I just didn't want the printer taking up space on my already cluttered desk. I'm not much for posting linux tutorials because I don't feel comfortable enough to teach others yet. I do, however, rely heavily on the tutorials and "how-tos" of others. That said, I'll post a list of the resources I used to set up my desktop here:
- http://luiscosio.com/how-to-dreamweaver-and-flash-8-running-on-ubuntu-dapper (works with CxOffice)
I'll post more here later, when I get to my home computer. Things that I absolutely wouldn't recommend include:
- Cedega (this is a complete rip. It works about half as well as crossover. Just use a virtualbox and save the pain)
