How to create a tar (or gz, bz2, tar.gz, tar.bz2, zip, lha, arj, zoo, rar) file in Linux.

Thank you to Yietzel who posted a comment asking us some information about how to create a tar file. In the Linux page we created a short but effective post about this topic. This short manual (yes it is a manual because we included also the instructions to create: gz, bz2, tar.gz, tar.bz2, zip, lha, arj, zoo, rar files) is short but very clear and easy to use. We really hope you find our post useful. Please, let us know! AddThis

Wine.. for Linux; free file converter and free file hosting services!

Hi everyone, we are sorry for our delay in writing new posts! This week in our Linux page (in Spanish) you can find some new posts. The first post is about Wine and the easiest way (we hope, let us know…) to install this program in Linux OS. The second post concerns zamzar.com, an useful web-page where you can easily convert your files (image, doc, music, video) to different formats (the use of a temporary email address is recommended if you believe it’s not sure to spread your personal email address). Last but not least, we have posted a brief review about Mediafire: a free file hosting site (practical and easy to use). See you next week! AddThis

We think you all (not only the Linux beginners) will really appreciate this freeware. Please, let us know! We added also a short post about “Punto Informatico“, an Italian free newspaper which dedicates a huge section about freeware (and, of course, it is also possible to download all the freeware it talks about!!). See you next week!

Multiplatform (Windows, Linux and Mac OS X) software.

This week we invite you to visit our brief reviews about Xnview, and GIMPShop, two essential graphic freewares for professional or common users.
These softwares are freewares and multiplatform so they are ideal for the daily use (in your office or simply at home). In particular XnView is a graphic reader and converter which can be used directly from an USB Key (yes, it’s possible to have a portable, complete graphic reader always with you!).
Please, don’t forget our specific Linux page with two, very interesting, new reviews about Elisa (a project to create a powerful media center for Linux) and about the Kubuntu package manager (to easily install new programs).
Last but not least, our special thanks (and review) to Tyberius who suggested us his good Windows Alt-Tab replacement: SmartTab (freeware, of course).
See you soon!
