We show you how to enable client-side decorations in Nautilus on Ubuntu, and you don't need to switch to a different desktop environment to do it!

Expensive tools aren't the only option for graphic design (and never were)

Many graphic designers work with expensive proprietary software because they believe they have to, and it has to be Adobe. But this is not so: There are many fine professional-quality open source graphics applications out there.

Conventional wisdom says that in order to work in graphics one has to use Adobe software on a Mac. "Macs are for graphics, PCs are for accountants!" Macs and Adobe are not the only way to produce graphic design, and never were. Those starting out in graphics with open source tools would feel comfortable with them, not having anything to compare them to. It may be a bit more difficult for long-time Adobe or QuarkXPress users to accept alternatives, or even chuck the Mac for Linux. Many graphic designers refuse to believe that yes, they can. If it doesn't cost hundreds of dollars, how could it be any good?

The apps may take a bit of time to learn how to use them really effectively but today we do have YouTube tutorials and many blogs that explain how to do this.... and you would also save a mint of money!
