TUX Takes January Off

New Editor in Chief Kevin Shockey joins the team, introducing his first issue February 1.

by TUX Staff

'Tis the season and all, and like many of us this time of year, the TUX team is taking a little time off. We won't be publishing a January 2006 issue, but we'll be back and rejuvenated in time to roll out the February 2006 issue and monthly issues throughout the coming year.

With the February issue comes a new editorial steward. Kevin Shockey takes over TUX during a period of dynamic growth, with readership now close to 80,000 people. For those of you wondering what happened to fearless leader Nicholas Petreley, you now can find him over at TUX's sister publication, Linux Journal, where he has taken on the role of editor in chief. Nick's first issue of Linux Journal will be on newsstands in late January--make sure to pick up a copy!

Add Custom Actions to Your KDE Konqueror Pop-up Menus

How to set up Konqueror so that you can right-click on an icon for a Word Document and view that document as HTML. [This article initially appeared in TUX, issue 9.]

by Mango Parfait

In the August 2005 issue of TUX, I said, "You can customize KDE so that you can right-click on a .vbs file and choose Actions->Compile, which launches a compiler specifically for Visual Basic Script. This option will not show up for other types of files. You cannot do the same thing in GNOME. I can explain how to do all this in KDE. Maybe I will explain in a future issue."

Wireless Networking with ndiswrapper

How to use ndiswrapper to set up network cards normally unsupported by Linux. [This article initially appeared in TUX, issue 8.]

by Jes Hall

Wireless cards can be quite a bit of trouble for Linux users. Very few manufacturers have any interest in writing Linux drivers or releasing information about their cards so other people can use this information to write Linux drivers. There is a small selection of Linux-compatible Wi-Fi (wireless networking) cards, but they tend to be rather expensive. Worse, you don't get very much choice about which wireless networking chipset is built-in when you buy a laptop.

KDE Everywhere You Go: Platform-Independent Personal Information Management

How to make life easier by using your KDE-based PIM on different platforms. [This article initially appeared in TUX, issue 7.]

by A. Creg Peters

If you are like me, you like to use a computer to do as much work for you as is “machinely” possible. If you are like me, you also carry various devices with you that leverage all this work you've made your poor PC do on your behalf. This means carrying a PDA, memory stick or other gadgets that hold information.

If this description fits you, you probably face the same situation that I do: accessing all of the information that you've so diligently entered in one place (like your Linux PC) in other places (for example, a Windows PC).
