Unprotecting ADE DRM-protected epub files (acsm)

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxIf you have been unlucky enough to download .acsm files on your Linux machine, and feeling cheated, this is the cure: A WINE Remedy for acsm epub DRM Adobe ADEs. It is not a very quick solution, but it works. If you get an error about P11-Kit and run the 64-bit version of Linux, you might need to employ this fix: (look at answer 1): Wine can't find gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so.

Ubuntu 12.10 released

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxUbuntu 12.10 was released on October 18th, 2012.
A couple of major features: websites can now be treated as actual applications, integrating them into Unity. The divide between local and online content when searching has also been softened, which, they claim, makes it easier to find what you're looking for. On the server side, it includes the Folsom release of OpenStack, "Cinder, for block storage and Quantum, a virtual networking API. Ubuntu's Metal-as-a-Service bare-metal provisioning tool has been updated and now supports Calxeda hyperscale hardware based on ARM".

Quick tip: Ubuntu - proxy settings for Update Manager

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxYou have set the proxy in"Network proxy" (Applications, System Tools, System Settings, Network) but update-manager still doesn't work. In Ubuntu, update-manager has its own proxy settings. You will have to edit / create the file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/02proxy and put this line in it:
Acquire::http::Proxy "http://proxyserver:proxyport/";
For example
Acquire::http::Proxy "http://proxy:8080/";
That's it.
