- Introduction of Basic Linux Commands
UNIX is a very stable and very powerful operating system. This tutorial assumes you have access to either a Linux or UNIX shell account.
We are going to connect via our windows telnet client.
* Click on "Start" and click on "RUN".
* Type in "telnet ctssn.com" (without the quotes) and press OK. If you have your own shell account, you will want to type "telnet yourServer.com"
* A window should have popped up with a login prompt. Congratulations, you did it!
* Enter your username and password. You should have received this when you signed up for your account with us.
* You are now in your home directory.
- The Installing
GIMP for Linux
There are various ways to obtain and install the GIMP for Unix systems. In addition to the source code distribution here on www.gimp.org, you can get binaries for various flavors of Unix.
At the moment we know about the following binary packages for GIMP 2.2 on Unix. These binaries are provided by GIMP users.
The GIMP runs on most Unix systems using X11 (the X Window System). If your system can run a graphical web browser, chances are that it can also run the GIMP. It runs even on relatively old PCs (Pentium 200) or on old workstations (Ultra1). The amount of memory can be an important factor, especially if you intend to work on large images.
of Linux and Unix
Virtually every organization faces the challenge of maintaining and managing heterogeneous systems. The number of tools used for identity management, systems management, and systems monitoring can be as varied as the platforms they are required to manage. Quest Software addresses these challenges by providing powerful integration solutions that allow organizations to leverage their existing investment in Microsoft products and technologies--such as Active Directory, Systems Management Server (SMS), and Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM)--by extending their capabilities to Unix, Linux, Java, and Mac platforms.
Unix and Linux Podcasting Guide
Podcasting is a distribution method for multimedia files using Really Simple
Syndication (RSS). A podcast client allows you to download audio or other media content in an automated and controllable way.
The user simply selects or specifies in the podcast client a URL that points to an RSS feed containing the media file and the client then checks the feed for new content and downloads it automatically.
Podcasting allows the listener the ability to time shift the audio, to listen to archived shows, and to listen to this content in places that would have been difficult or impossible before. It could be considered on demand radio.
Podcasts also allow more people than ever before to produce and distribute radio content for very little cost. This will of course create a large amount of unprofessional and uninteresting content just like the mass media companies. But this process will also create great sources of information and entertainment.
- Introduction advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
The shell is a command interpreter. More than just the insulating layer between the operating system kernel and the user, it's also a fairly powerful programming language. A shell program, called a script, is an easy-to-use tool for building applications by "gluing" together system calls, tools, utilities, and compiled binaries. Virtually the entire repertoire of UNIX commands, utilities, and tools is available for invocation by a shell script. If that were not enough, internal shell commands, such as testing and loop constructs, give additional power and flexibility to scripts. Shell scripts lend themselves exceptionally well to administrative system tasks and other routine repetitive jobs not requiring the bells and whistles of a full-blown tightly structured programming language.
