Some essential links from it:
The KDE Education Project
Schoolforge.net : To find Linux software check under Education Software on the left side of the page and select the GNU/Linux operating system at the top of the list.
and a link to a pdf file
Kids's Software for Linux
What this article leaves out of its focus is the incredible amount of cross platform educational pages on the web. Many use Java, youtube or flash content. I would like to mention the khanacademy.org site as a great example of youtube based content.
JClic as an example as community driven java software.

Copied partition sda 11 (30 gb) to a bigger partition sda15 (43gb), both are ext4
#dd if=/dev/sda11 of=/dev/sda15
You have to be patient because dd soesn't give feedback until finished whict took me nearly 56 minutes.
Using sdd -t if=/dev/sda11 of=/dev/sda15 will report total time and show progress.
The bigger partition sda15 is shown with the size of sda11.
Gparted shows the partition with the right total size.
But used 33.75 gb and unused 9.34 gb which is not correct.
The file managers show wrong total size (that of sda11) and the wrong free space too.
I did this:
After shrinking the partition with gparted with 1 gb and then resizing it to its original size the problem is solved and the right information is there for the filemanagers and gparted: 42.4 gb total size and 20.1 gb free.
But the better and easier solution is :
After using dd to clone smaller partition to larger partition:
Run in root term:

First remove all unnecessary video drivers: http://wiki.archbang.org/index.php?title=Xorg_Desperate_Mode_Guide
Add this line in /etc/pacman.conf:
IgnorePkg = xf86-input-evdev xf86-input-mouse xf86-input-aiptek xf86-input-synaptics xorg-server xorg-server-common xorg-apps xorg-xkb-utils xorg-server-utils xorg-utils synaptics libgl libdrm xorg-res-utils xf86driproto xf86-input-keyboard xkeyboard-config
When you are too late to prevent it.
When you have to recover do the same with ect/pacman.conf
Move in terminal to /var/cache/pacman/pkg
pacman -U xorg-server-1.10.4-1*
I do * because I don't know if you have a 64 bits system or not
and reinstall nvidia.

First step: create the script
It is a modification of a volume aware delete script from here
To spare you the work of the modification I put the modified script here: http://pastebin.com/XRmmKr7R
Copy it to a text editor and save it as del, make it executable
chmod -v 755 /path/tofolder/del
and move it to /usr/bin/.
Now we can create the right click Move to trash option for pcmanfm-mod
First copy the file /usr/share/applications/pcmanfm-user-f6.desktop to ~/.local/share/applications/
Edit this file in second and third line to:Name=Move to TrashSave. Done. When restarting pcmanfm-mod and you right click on a file or folder you want to delete you see the option Move to Trash
Use it and your file will be save in the HOME/.local/share/Trash/files folder.

Not sure why it won’t close the sandboxes for you – make sure you close all programs using the sandbox, but during shutdown I would think that would happen already. Sometimes a process will hang on too long.
You might try adding the close command to /etc/rc.local.shutdown:
sandfox --closeall --user myuser
You could run
lsof | grep sandfox > somefilesomewhere
in the shutdown script and see if anything is reported running in the sandbox. You might also try logging sandfox with ––verbose enabled and see if that gives any clues. Try to determine a) if the closeall command is executed, b) if any error is given by it.
