Introduction

Linux Voice

Article from Issue 205/2017

This month in Linux Voice.

Power users often want more than the usual defaults; they like things smooth and streamlined – partly because anything worth doing is worth optimizing, but also because, well, some people just like tweaking things to make them work better. In fact, that's one of the ways you get to be a power user – by pushing the limits to perfect your user experience and learning along the way.

This month's tutorial on Devilspie2 offers lots of play space for tweakers everywhere. This cool tool lets you write scripts to customize the size and location for screen windows. You can even manage workspaces through automated scripts.

Elsewhere inside, we introduce you to Web Security Dojo, a Linux appliance that serves as a teaching tool for hands-on learning about web security and penetration testing.

But we'd rather help you with the next step.
