GPhoto: Linux support for your Digital Camera:

Supported Cameras:
 http://gphoto.org/proj/libgphoto2/support.php 


I am still not sure why people want to go to the hassle of downloading directly from the camera whether one is using linux, windows, or whatever. So much simpler to get a $5 usb card reader (mine accepts 23 different types of card) and stick card from your camera into your reader. Mount the dos partition on the card and voila there are your pics in jpg format to copy or erase as you see fit. No drain on your cameras batterys. Only some very early and now very old digital cameras didnt have a removeable card.

I then use mtpaint to crop or otherwise edit the pics. I apparently can crop pics in the camera, but thats torture compared to doing it on computer. If one needs more options, theGIMP is available.

Link to a card reader here:

My Camera doesn't have a removable card, it is a cheap Camera with the card/chip Builtin.

Another interesting related part in this regard is to try building one's own PC, perhaps even a very cheap one. This will help one get more familiar with their hardware. That way, one knows how to manage their system very well both from the Software and Hardware perspective.


Here is a related good idea for those on a small budget:
If you have a really Old PC. (Ihave a Petium 200 Mhz or something, that is almost worthless). Take it apart and but it back. This will give one experience in building computers/upgrades etc., I have an old PC that is probably not even worth 50 bucks these days. However, this PC building will be an invaluable experience from this old PC !!

I am just typing this message using Puppy Linux. One never seems to be amazed by everything Puppy offers. Your posts always remind me to try Puppy Linux. I am glad I did. Another great OS, small but real powerful !

Great Linux Backup
GPL'd Linux tool which works quite well for full system backups named Mkcdrec. It can be located at:

 http://mkcdrec.ota.be/ 

Program output is in the form of one or more .iso image files for burning to CDR or CDRW. The first .iso image file is bootable, so if the worst happens, you can boot from the restore CD. You will be greeted with a set of simple options on the first display, so you do not have to remember how to use the recovery CD.

Mkcdrec is a command line tool which uses the auspices of the Linux make utility, so to use it, you execute commands from the Mkcdrec directory. make test will check that all required software is installed on your system, and list what is and is not. The make command with no arguments will display a numbered menu listing available options.


Wonder if anyone tried this. These days, we need DVD backup. Smile

Just got Real Player for Linux and installed it. This handles Audio streams better from Radio etc., on the Net. Had trouble doing this with xmms etc.,

There is a lot to read inregards to getting to the core of Linux. This Journey is interesting and for the interested user. I have decided to take my time to go thru this slowly, this is like a big but interesting puzzle.

The Power of Unix:

[url]http//www.linuxhq.com/guides/LUG/node76.html#SECTION00910000000000000000[/url]

Some small but powerful commands when used in combination with other things.

Just tried the FreeBSD Live CD. It is sooo slow to load even on my new PC which is a processor above 2 Ghz and enough Ram. Also, it just loaded the simple XFCE and even that it took sooo longggg to load. Netconfig etc., was very different.

I am just going to forget this BSD.

it really seems like all of these manuals are for people who aren't too good with computers and want to get into Linux. I'm good with computers, and i was able to install Linux, and use it pretty easily with no manuals. i just ask for help with some stuff in irc chat.

These manuals still help when in a tight situation. When one asks very easy basic questions on mIRC then they ask one to refer to the manuals.

Best Linux P2P Clients:

I have had good success with using the following under wine uTorrent and eMulePlus. Tried these out of curiosity.

The Linux version of emule called amule had severe dependency issues for me when installing, however others have been known to use it more smoothly.

Also, be sure that wine emulates win 2000/XP to avoid the 100 connections limit (I still have not done that).
