I will be presenting at a psychology conference this Saturday, I have been busy working on a powerpoint mainly in virtual box (I don’t want to run into compatibility issues). I recently tried boxee on my pc and have been messing with wah!cade. Yes, again do this during the summer.
It looked great when I set it up on my television. I was able to stream southpark episodes, listen to some music while working on the powerpoint. I figured out how to use my media center remote control.. nice. Unfortunately, when I disconnected it my computer kept recognizing a second monitor. This disabled compiz (the desktop effects) so I could not use the AWN dock. This makes me worry about wether ubuntu will work well with projectors, luckily i’m turning the powerpoint into a poster. I still have time to figure out how well ubuntu goes with projects. It would be interesting to hear back from peoples experiences.
So you know that I am thinking on future ideas for posts more directly related to student needs I have some ideas for future posts:
Scibuntu (how to install) – It install many programs for stats analysis, bio informatic programs, and plain useful stuff for graduate students
Installing Linux Mint – It comes set up so you can play various music and video formats on install
Edubuntu – ubuntu with resources for teachers
Useful Books and Magazines for Ubuntu Users
