My ThinkPad does not have a DVD burner and I'm looking to buy an external one. I have found one but I need to know if there is an app like DVD shrink for linux. Does such a thing exist?

Well, apparently DVD Shrink works well under Wine.

For Mandriva repositories, I found this nice site:

SmartUrpmi

Select your version and 64/32 bit, and it will present you a vast list of mirrors for all the Mandriva repositories, from which you can choose. You can then have a bash script created which automatically adds all the mirrors you selected, so you don't have to do it manually. Make sure you're connected to the internet when running the script.

Does anyone know if there's a Linux alternative to Nokia's Ovi (PC) Suite? I tried all the apps I know (nokinux, wammu, etc.), but none of them seem to work with a N80 phone, for example. Wammu detects the phone and the only option that works with it is Info. No sms, no contacts, nothing else...

Since Microsoft bought Skype, I doubt it will be included by default. You can always download it off their site as a .deb file, until they decide to kill it off.

first of all, was it really necessary to bump a 2 year old thread (you could have made your own)

second of all, I don't believe skype was ever in the ubuntu software center (at least as far as i've ever know since back in the 10.10 days)

This is a sticky (pinned) thread with the title "Where do I find this app?" - I think he did the right thing instead of creating a new thread.

As Kreuger said, I normally download it from Skype's website directly. Alternatively, you have this http://askubuntu.com/questions/7498/how-do-i-install-skype

Ah my bad, i didn't realize this thread was a sticky, I just saw it in the mini spy and saw it was a 2 year bump

I notice that people in the Linux Desktops were posting archey terminal outputs for system info. I never saw them before I was looking through this month's LD thread.

I downloaded the .deb version, but there is a .rpm version here too: https://github.com/d...rchey/downloads

Nice! :rofl:

EDIT: Sorry, I didn't notice that Haggis was updating this or developing something similar: http://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/1125048-application-linux-system-script/

Nice work, Haggis!

I'm looking to upgrade one of my older Win7 laptops to Ubuntu. I have everything I need except for one thing. I use this laptop to make changes to my account's website. I use dreamweaver to manage the site. This site is mostly straight HTML with a tad of javascript. I like dreamweaver as it manages the login to the site and easily allows to push and pull files. What would be the best system to use to replace dreamweaver in a linux environment? I know i could probably just use ftp and notepad++ or something like that, but a package would be nice in case my wife, who is a non-programmer, would need to get in and make a change if i am not able to.
