comment PNG Image not displaying for desktop icon on Fedora 16/17 with Gnome
My images were jpg, I had to convert them to png and remove the filename extension (no absolute path was given). But two of the apps I’ve created still don’t show their icon.

comment How does reverse SSH tunneling work?
@ghoti: By default, the listening socket on the server (in my -R image the yellow remotehost) will be bound to the loopback interface only. This may be overridden by specifying a bind_address. An empty bind_address or the address ‘*’ indicates that the remote socket should listen on all interfaces. — So just try it: On a blue computer start ssh -R 1234:localhost:8000 yellowcomputer. And also on the blue machine start python -m SimpleHTTPServer (a simple webserver on port 8000). Then in a webbrowser on the yellow machine open the URL http://localhost:1234 and you will see it works.

@basanese: YOURIP is the address of the host trying to connect to the firewalled server. I called it YOURIP because I was referring to the computer the questioner called his computer.

You can also use version sort of the ls command. That is: convert -delay 1000 $(ls -v name*png) output.gif

comment how to get the stream URL of flash radio
This is a possible method I’ve used already. But if I want to automatize it, I do have to know how to get the URL or the data stream that comes into my computer with linux tools.
