A free Howto to get a free Chromebook Replacement: Called Firefoxbook

Everybody knows a product called chromebook, but you must not buy such a laptop with branded OS! Here is a small  Howto get a similar Laptop with free firefox.

How does it work? Easy, the Laptop boots from Stick or CF-Card to RAMDISK, the firefox profile and cache is always new created at non permanent RAMDISK. The private Mode surpress cookie and other waste. Only the Window Settings are stored (Fullscreen/ F11). After boot the Internet is connected and Firefox is shown on Desktop.

All you need:

  • a Laptop, can be a older one, i prefer Thinkpads
  • a Wireless/LAN Card if not available inside
  • 4GB USB Stick or 4GB CF-Disk with ATA-CF-Adaptor
  • Time to work
  • Tinycorelinux at CD source http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/

Let’s do:

  • Download Tinycorelinux and burn it to CD
  • reboot the Laptop on the CD to tinycore
  • open a Terminal and enter #sudo tc-install
  • follow instructions
  • reboot the Laptop and remove the CD
  • boot the Laptop on the USB Stick
  • check network connection
  • if not available plugin LAN cable reboot again on stick
  • or setup WIFI with the WIFI Manager
  • check internet connection again
  • NOW LETS MAKE SAFE!
  • if the Laptop is online install firefox with: #tce-load -wi firefox
  • NOW!! Create first a firefox profile on the RAMDISK!!
  • do run as tc user #firefox -P
  • create new firefox profilename “tmp” locate it at /tmp
  • now run as user tc #firefox, close firefox!
  • edit now /opt/.filetool.lst with #sudo vi /opt/.filetool.lst
  • add “tmp/localstore.rdf” line, close and save
  • edit as user tc #vi /home/tc/.setbackground
  • add line “sh /tmp/tcloop/firefox/usr/local/firefox-official/firefox –private”
  • save settings to USB Stick called mydata.tgz with #filetool.sh -b”
  • run #sudo reboot

Enjoy a Firefoxbook with always safe browsing option! On every reboot the old cached data are really lost cause the profile is always placed inside ramdisk and never on chip!

Do always reboot or shutdown without backup by menu, or push only the Laptop Power Button to auto delete waste at poweroff. Other Browsers can be used also (Opera).

Gnome evince firefox problem PDF

Von , Sonntag, November 4, 2007

Problem:
Wenn man unter Gnome mit dem Browser firefox ein PDF Dokument einer Webseite oeffnen moechte wird nur der Dialog “print” angezeigt, vermutlich liegt der Fehler daran das evince versucht auf meinen nicht vorhandenen Drucker zuzugreifen. Wenn man keinen hat, sollte man das Programm xpdf verwenden, da es kleiner und schneller ist. Dazu in deiner Konsole [#aptitude remove evince - -purge] ausführen, und anschliessende [# aptitude install xpdf ]. Nun noch im Firefox die Dateizuordnung fuer PDF direkt anlegen. Unter Bearbeiten->Einstellungen-> Inhalt den Eintrag PDF suchen und die Einstellung editieren oeffnen mit xpdf. Firefox neu starten fertig. Hinweis: Gnome ist auch nach dem Login etwas schneller da evince nicht im Hintergrund des Gnome Dateimanager Nautilus “klemmt” Fehlersuche laeuft weiter.

If you want to open a PDF FILE with firefox you got only a message from evince “PRINT”, but nothing more. It seems to be a problem with my not installed printer, cause i don’t have it. To solve it, you remove evince and install older xpdf. Do open console as root an “aptitude remove evince – -purge” later “aptitude install xpf”. On firefox you have to set the xpdf as default program for pdf in the edit->settings->inside open file configuration button and search pdf. Edit the setting and set it direct to xpdf not mozplugger. Now restart firefox and test it. Additional Information: I remark a faster login of Gnome cause evince does not hangs in backround of gnome nautilus filemanager. I go on searching for reasons.

Thunderbird 2.0.0.6 Mail zeigt keine Bilder – Thunderbird blocks image load

Von , Mittwoch, Oktober 31, 2007

Seit der Einfuerung von Thunderbird 2.0 kann man die Einstellungen des Bilderblockers in Menue Einstellungen nicht mehr aendern. Daher geben Sie in der Addresszeile, wo Sie sonst [www] eingeben [ about: config]+ ENTER ein. Suchen Sie nun mittels Suche den Eintrag [mailnews.message_display.disable_remote_image] und klicken mit der Maus auf [true] damit es zu false wechselt. Jetzt das Programm neu starten, die Bilder sollten nun alle zu sehen sein.

 


Since startup of thunderbird 2.0 the options menu has no possibiltiy to configure the image blocker. To solve this insert to addressbar [about : config] + press enter. After this search entry [mailnews.message_display.disable_remote_image] and touch it with a mouseclick to set it to false. Now reboot thunderbird and all images can be seen
