Ubuntu 10.04 Beta 1 was released yesterday which brings some new and exciting features that Ubuntu users are going to love for sure.
New features include the latest GNOME desktop environment, new drivers and improved support for nVidia cards, built-in Twitter/Facebook integration, new themes and notifications etc.
Yesterday, I posted a tutorial on how to tether your iPhone on Ubuntu 9.10 using Bluetooth, and now I have another tutorial to tether iPhone using USB on Ubuntu Linux.
In this tutorial, we’ll be using an iPhone Ethernet driver written by Diego Giagio and several packages from Jonathan Beckâ€™s PPA.
iPhone tethering on Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) is now possible! You can easily tether your iPhone 3G or 3GS running on iPhone 3.0 or 3.1.x firmware with your laptop/netbook running on Ubuntu 9.10.
If youâ€™re running 3.0 then you can do this without jail breaking your phone by installing a modified carrier profile. However, if youâ€™re on OS 3.1+ then you will need to jail break your phone to install the modified carrier profile.
We’ve seen many themes for Ubuntu but the only OS theme left for Ubuntu was, Android.
This Android theme, Genoid, brings Android-styled interface to you Lunux with matching icons, background and wallpapers. Now you can easily change GNOME desktop to Android.
We’ve just had Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala a month ago, and Ubutu has already started working on their next version of Linux distro, Ubuntu 10.4.
Ubuntu 10.4 Lucid Lynx mockup designs were posted in the Ubuntu Wiki. This artwork has been labeled as UbuntuSun.
The Nvidia Linux team released the Nvidia driver 190.42 RC a week ago, which were very stable and have now been officially released on Nvidia’s website.
The NVIDIA 190.42 driver is the first official release in the 190.xx Linux driver series. It has been in beta for months with many updates and releases.
Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala has just released today and is now available for download, though it doesn’t yet show on the website.
I have already written about when the order page was updated and you could pre-order Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala CDs.
I’ve previously shared a Windows 7 transformation pack for Linux, but that was only for the Linux distro Kubuntu.
Here’s another Windows 7 transformation pack that works with the most popular Linux distro, Ubuntu and features an interface that is very close to the actual one of Windows 7.
Opera is one of the popular browsers on Ubuntu (Linux) and is quite faster than others available.
The browser handles common Internet-related tasks such as displaying websites, sending and receiving e-mail messages, managing contacts, IRC online chatting, downloading files via BitTorrent, and reading web feeds.
