Welcome to my tutorial portal. This page lists the various tutorials I have made from things I've learned to do. Each tutorial contains information that I used personally to accomplish a task, in order for you to know that it is safe for you to use.
Avant Window Navigator This tutorial covers some issues related to the AWN dock, such as installation and use. Also covers how to make custom launchers.
Package Conversion This tutorial covers how to use the program Alien to convert .tar.gz files to .deb files for easy installation using Gdebi.
Flashplayer on Flock This tutorial covers how to get the Flash Player plugin to function on Flock. This may not be necessary for non-Debian based distros. This is needed for use with the Flock download from GetDeb.net (This website provides .deb versions of popular packages for Ubuntu based distros) NOTE: This has also worked on Opera.
Java content on Flock This tutorial covers how to get Java conent from the internet to function on Flock. This may not be necessary for all Flock users, especially with the latest versions of getdeb being added to the repository on Debian distros. If you need it, it's here for you. If not, even better! (One way to find out is to try to upload photos to facebook; the new 'default' fb method requires a properly working Java plugin) NOTE: This has also worked on Opera.
Peeling Windows/Wobbly Windows This is a very short tutorial about the famous Peeling Window effect in Compiz-Fusion. It's most often associated with the Wobbly Windows effect and enables the user to grab the window and peel it backward, which will impress your non-Linux using friends for sure!
Changing Gnome Display Manager (GDM) v. 2.28 (with included xsplash hack) This is a two part tutorial enabling you to change the appearance of the login screen, which is no longer themeable from a simple GUI as it was in GDM 2.20 and earlier. It also includes a hack to easily change splash screens to coordinate with the GDM and desktop appearance. A very special thanks to Meerkat of the Gnome-look.org community for the xsplash GUI .deb package.
Mint Google Search in Opera This is a very short 3 step process to get rid of the Mint Google Search in Opera that comes with Linux Mint. At the time of this writing, the issue of the custom Google search engine is being looked into as it is not nearly as popular as Google's regular search page. Click on this page link to find out how to get rid of the Mint Google Search and use Google's regular search engine in the Opera web browser.
