Ubuntu Oneiric: Final Touches

Note: A month ago I meant to write this article but experienced hardware issues. I wrote that in places that Oneiric was slow… I was wrong. Apologize for any inconvenience. Here are some edits, additions, and subtractions that help complete the feel of the of Ubuntu’s 11.10 Oneiric desktop. Note that a couple modifications are […]

Random Tidbits

Today, I’ll be going over the jet and flotsam I’ve been thinking about lately. Since everybody’s desktop is extraordinarily unique in Linux so there should be something here for everyone :). Gnome Smaller Icons For a smaller screen like I got (800×600) having smaller icons helps save a good amount of screen real estate. I […]
