So you have to install software that is made for Linux, in our case for Ubuntu (Xubuntu is a flavour of Ubuntu). Don’t try to download Windows Software or Apps you find in the internet. It will just not work!
The good news is: No, you don’t have to buy it. Linux is free software and there are thousends of programms for nearly everything you need.
It is called „Ubuntu Software Center“, you find it in the Whisker Menu either in your favorites (default) or in „Settings“.
Click on it!
If you are used to Google Play or Apple’s App Store, you will see, that the Ubuntu Software Center is that kind of „Store“
Very very few of the apps (or especially books and magazines) have a price shown, but nearly ervything else is for free. Use the free software as long as you do not have a real good reason to pay for something.
Software already installed has a green tick.
If you want to know more about a specific program, just click on it on you will be shown a detailed description (click „more Info“)
If you want to know long it will take, click on „Progress“ and you will get an estimation.
Practice: Install a Software you like, maybe a little game or the programming environment for children named „scratch“. To find „scratch“ you may use the „Search“ function (click the magnifying glass on the right top).
All software you install will be found categorized in the Whisker Menu.
a) the software „synaptic“. It is a very good program like the „Ubuntu Software Center“. Install it and give it a try. Maybe you like it more than the software center.
b) on the command line. This may look weird to beginners, but it is definitly a very good way to install software and many advanced Linux users do it that way. We will show that in a later part of our courses.
There are several ways to do this:
first click on the whisker menu and the power-icon or press the power-button of your computer.
as a second step do not „shutdown“ your computer but click „Log Out“.
On the right top corner of the screen you see an Icon saying for example „en_US“ or „de_AT“.
This is the language used if you login now (username: kalliope, password: kalliope. remember?).
You can now change this language before login to the one you wish.
As a practice do it now. Change the language for example to german and login.
Note: in some languages not everything is translated and you will see some english expressions, too.
Practice: now log out again and try another language or go back to english.
In the opening keyboard-settings window you unchoose „Use system defaults“
click on the add button and a „Keyboard layout selection“ will be prompted.
choose one or more additional languages. in future these keyboard layouts will be available to you.
The order of the keyboards show is the order it will be switched (see below) and the topmost is the default keyboard layout after startup
The fastest way to switch layouts is a „keyboard shortcut“. These tricky keyboard-shortcuts are used in several situations and can be very helpful. No panic, the ones you need you will remember soon.
open –> settings –> keyboard –> Layout again
click on „Change layout option“ and choose „ALT-SHIFT“
after that close the window
Begin writing something, then press ALT-SHIT, go on writing. Repeat this and the language you write will change every time you hit ALT-SHIFT
You can find templates in the internet. If you search google or any other search engine for „keyboard stickers arabic“ (e.g.) you find templates.
If you attend our courses in Wels you can ask for printouts, we do some.
You can download our templates: arabic-a4
Open Whisker Menu -> Accessories -> Onboard
The Onboard keyboard will always show your currently used keyboard layout. So if you switch to e.g. arabic, it will will show that
If the Onboard keyboard is to large and/or hiding things you need to see, you can move, resize and close the window with the controls on the right side. Resizing is done on the edges like other regular windows.
Last month Cairo Hackerspace lost their space which was housed in the Townhouse Gallery a local art center. The shuttering of the Townhouse Gallery is just one in a series of recent raids on contemporary art spaces by the Egyptian Censorship Board. No official explanations have been given but it appears that the hackerspace was collateral damage in an attempt to close down art spaces. […]
