[HOWTO] Video Wallpaper on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx with Shantz XWinWrap

[ad#ad-1]I wanted to try out video wallpaper (like DreamScene on Windows 7). I had tried XWinWrap with Hardy but back then, I had problems running Compiz on an old PC and it did not look good at all. Now, I am trying it out on a new PC and Compiz works well on my onboard Intel GMA 3000 on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx Alpha.

If you want to try this, you must have compiz enabled. You may also want to install mplayer and codecs for videos you want to use as desktop background. Continue reading [HOWTO] Video Wallpaper on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx with Shantz XWinWrap

[HOWTO] Add multiple rapidshare, megaupload downloads in a Queue in Ubuntu with Tucan Manager

[ad#ad-1] My friend who recently switched to Ubuntu was looking for a rapidshare, megaupload file downloader where he can queue downloads and leave it to download. Actually I found an application that not only supports rapidshare and megaupload but lots of other file-sharing sites such as 4shared, badongo, depositfiles, easy-share, filefactory, gigasize, hotfile, mediafire, sendspace, uploading and zshare. The application is called Tucan Manager and is available from the universe repository in Lucid Lynx (I’m sure it is available in Karmic and older versions too). Moreover, it supports uploads to these sites too.
