Linux Mint 12 KDE
KDE: “Windows Key” to open Kickoff Launcher
March 8, 2012
When I installed Linux Mint 12 KDE, as with anytime I install an operating system (except OS X, since you don’t get choices), I had to make a few small modifications before I got up and running. I start with the applications I want to have installed and to turn off tap-to-click. One of the other tasks under Linux is to set a few key bindings that I’m in a habit of using from Windows.
Mounting Box.net on Mint 12 / Ubuntu 11.10
February 28, 2012
Right now, through March 23, Box.net is running a promotion to give you a free 50 GB for life (instead of their normal 5 GB) if you signup through their Android application. If you don’t know, Box.net offers cloud file storage and sync, much like Dropbox. Personally, I prefer to use Spideroak, but I figured I’d give it a shot for a free 50 GB. Now I’m not going to be uploading 50 GB of documents from my Android, so the real question was how do I use it under Linux?
