    Author: h4deszTags: , Comments: 2

    Installing Windows TTF Fonts Automatically Sometimes you miss some good looking fonts available over the Internet, mostly because you work on design or you just want to make something look better.

That's why I wrote a little application in C which does all the work for you.

  • How To Compile Amarok 2 From SVN On K/X/Ubuntu

    ubuntu Author: sjauTags: , Comments: 6

    How To Compile Amarok 2 From SVN On K/X/Ubuntu Amarok is a pretty nifty, versatile and advanced music player for the KDE desktop. However the current version in the *buntu 8.10 repos is hopelessly outdated and (IMHO) totally bugged. There's also the Amarok Neon Project, which aims at providing daily SVN builds for *buntu however lately they have not been updated. So, if you want to be up-to-date with latest Amarok development you either wait until the Neon Project provides binaries again or you compile it on your own. If you want to compile it on your own, you require KDE 4.2. There are also PPA repos for that, use my generator http://repogen.simplylinux.ch to get the according info.
