AirPlay video support comes to Linux courtesy of Totem media player plug-in

This one's about as unnofficial as it gets, but Linux users do now have a relatively easy way to receive and play video streamed to their PC via Apple's Airplay. To get things going, all you have to do is download a plug-in for the Totem media player (which ships with most popular Linux distributions), install it in the usual Linux fashion, and then start streaming video to your Linux PC with AirPlay just as if it were an Apple TV. That's it. Hit up the link below to find the plug-in, along with some more detailed installation instructions if you need them.

Move window buttons back to the right in Ubuntu 10.04 / 10.10

One of the more controversial changes in the Ubuntu 10.04 beta is the Mac OS-inspired change to have window buttons on the left side. We’ll show you how to move the buttons back to the right.

How to move the window buttons

Press Alt+F2 to bring up the Run Application dialog box, enter “gconf-editor” in the text field, and click on Run.

The Configuration Editor should pop up.
The key that we want to edit is in apps/metacity/general.

The button layout can be changed by changing the “button_layout” key. Double-click button_layout to edit it.
Change the text in the Value text field to:  menu:maximize,minimize,close

Click OK and the change will occur immediately, changing the location of the window buttons in the Configuration Editor.
Done!Hope this help :)
