Very cheap ebooks till 5 July

Some time ago I did a review about a well written linux mint book from Packt Publishing.

Because they celebrate their 10 years anniversary you can get any book from their bookshelf for only 10 dollars. So if you want that copy of the “Raspberry Pi Cookbook for Python Programmers” or some “Advanced Penetration Testing” books. You can now get them very cheap.

As they mention on their web site:

This month marks 10 years since we embarked on our mission to deliver effective learning and information services to IT professionals. To celebrate this huge milestone, we are offering ALL of our eBooks and Videos at just $10 each for 10 days – this promotion covers every title and you can stock up on as many copies as you like until July 5th.

Some of the categories you can choose the books from:

  • Application Development

  • Business Skills
  • CMS and eCommerce
  • Enterprise Products and Platforms
  • Game Development
  • Instant
  • Mobile Application Development
  • Networking and Servers
  • Video
  • Virtualization and Cloud
  • Web Development

Anyway, just a few day’s left to get some of the 2000 good books for a low price.

synergy

startup synergy client before login (xfce)

Want to start synergy before the login screen?

Create a file in : /usr/local/bin

then chmod +x  it.

Add a line to the file in /etc/rc.local just before “exit 0” to execute the script at boot and before the login screen.

 

 

Google cloud-print

Connect to Google cloud print with linux

So you got a linux machine and you want it to print to your google cloud printer.

Just follow this page to set it up with cups: http://www.niftiestsoftware.com/cups-cloud-print/

I used the .deb  for my backboxlinux distro.

Then just follow the questions. It will ask you to open google to give the app some permissions. Google will create a code that you will have to enter.

It really is that simple
