November 27, 2011 3 comments

To install Gnome on your Ubuntu 11.10 server you should have defined the following repositories in /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu oneiric main restricted universe multiverse
#deb-src http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu oneiric main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu oneiric-updates main restricted universe multiverse
#deb-src http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu oneiric-updates main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu oneiric-security main restricted universe multiverse
#deb-src http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu oneiric-security main restricted universe multiverse

If you have them in your sources file, install gnome shell with the command:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell
sudo apt-get install gdm

Using NTFS Filesystem with Mac OS X

Update:

Since a fresh Mac OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) installation the ntfs-3g solution didn’t work. I use NTFS Mounter to mount an external ntfs drive. It should also work with Leopard.

 

MacPorts helps a lot to install command-line, X11 or Aqua based open-source software on the Mac OS X operating system.

You can download MacPorts here. After installing MacPorts, download and unarchive NTFS-3G. Open a terminal, switch to the folder and type the following command:

sudo port install ntfs-3g
