LXer: 5 Linux Desktop Environments on the Rise for 2017

Saturday 21st of January 2017 07:47:39 AM
With each passing year, the Linux desktop ecosystem shifts and morphs from one darling to the next. Although it’s sometimes challenging to tell, from month to month, which desktop will reign as the fan favorite, there are always signs that a particular desktop is going to rise in market share. Three trends I always examine are evolution, usability, and modernity. I prefer my desktops to have evolved along with the needs of current trends and users, to be easily used, and have a modern design aesthetic. Bonus points are generally awarded for a high range of flexibility.

TuxMachines: Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS Delayed Until February 2, Will Bring Linux 4.8, Newer Mesa

Saturday 21st of January 2017 06:20:55 AM

If you've been waiting to upgrade your Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system to the 16.04.2 point release, which should have hit the streets a couple of days ago, you'll have to wait until February 2.

We hate to give you guys bad news, but Canonical's engineers are still working hard these days to port all the goodies from the Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) repositories to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, which is a long-term supported version, until 2019. These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library.

TuxMachines: Calamares Release and Adoption

Saturday 21st of January 2017 06:14:06 AM
  • Calamares 3.0 Universal Linux Installer Released, Drops Support for KPMcore 2

    Calamares, the open-source distribution-independent system installer, which is used by many GNU/Linux distributions, including the popular KaOS, Netrunner, Chakra GNU/Linux, and recently KDE Neon, was updated today to version 3.0.

    Calamares 3.0 is a major milestone, ending the support for the 2.4 series, which recently received its last maintenance update, versioned 2.4.6, bringing numerous improvements, countless bug fixes, and some long-anticipated features, including a brand-new PythonQt-based module interface.

  • Due to Popular Request, KDE Neon Is Adopting the Calamares Graphical Installer

    KDE Neon maintainer Jonathan Riddell is announcing today the immediate availability of the popular Calamares distribution-independent Linux installer framework on the Developer Unstable Edition of KDE Neon.

    It would appear that many KDE Neon users have voted for Calamares to become the default graphical installer system used for installing the Linux-based operating system on their personal computers. Indeed, Calamares is a popular installer framework that's being successfully used by many distros, including Chakra, Netrunner, and KaOS.

Reddit: Pocket Laptop for phone replacement?

Saturday 21st of January 2017 05:35:07 AM

Does anybody know of a laptop that would fit in my pocket? (like 6-8ish inch screen, I have pretty big pockets). I hate my phone, and I just want something that runs arch linux with i3 that I can take around with me 70% of the time. Then ill buy a cheap phone put easytether, airdroid and expressVPN on it, and I'm good to go. I looked at the pocketCHIP and some raspberry pi projects, but none of them are usable as a real computer (low res screen, weird keyboard, and no trackpoint). The Sony VAIO P, or UX look awesome, but I figure there is probably something better still, and a bit cheaper. I use a X200 Thinkpad and want something as similar as possible to that. Thanks in advanced

TuxMachines: Your Computer's Clipboard is a Security Problem - Fix it in Linux With xsel and cron

Saturday 21st of January 2017 04:40:42 AM

Any program you run can read your clipboard, and its contents linger until another copy event or a reboot. Modern browsers enable multiple ways for malicious websites to read the clipboard contents (or add items in), so eliminate the worry by using a script with cron that auto-clears your clipboard regularly.

Reddit: Why are live cds such a poor representation of post-install experience?

Saturday 21st of January 2017 04:05:06 AM

I needed to reinstall my Dell M4800 Precision laptop, and with Windows frustrating me the last few months and being able to do 90% of my .Net development cross platform I decided to try Linux again (I haven't used it as a desktop in well over a decade).

While I am amazed at how well things are working out of the box, it is painfully clear that something is wrong with the way both Fedora and Ubuntu do installs, because the live cds are flawless and the initial install is anything but. Some examples are:

  • Fedora 25's live cd booted right into Wayland and was fully functional and nice. I then installed the live cd and I could not get wayland to run, it would always revert to X11 and not let me use Wayland at all.
  • Ubuntu 16.10 and 16.04 work flawlessly in my dock with an external monitor hooked up on the live cd. After installing every time I move mouse the screen shakes. It's extremely irritating and unworkable without changing from 1920x1200 to 1920x1080 (which causes scaling issues and sucks). I was able to fix this on 16.04 with a 4.4 kernel upgrade but I have no idea how to fix this on 16.10 since it's on 4.8.
  • Xubuntu 16.04 worked flawlessly on the live cd, including the lock screen. After install anytime I would lock or log out of my account the login screen would appear but my mouse cursor would not show. Someone commented that going to a virtual console then back to X might fix it but I didn't care enough to try it.

The list goes on with a lot of minor stuff that works flawlessly on a Live CD but not on the post-install. Everything I wanted worked perfectly fine on the live cd, from my dell docking station to utilizing igp but upgrading apps to use the dedicated graphics card with DRI_PRIME. I wish I could just have my system be an exact copy of a live cd setup.

Right now I'm mostly happy with my Ubuntu 16.04 environment (with some caveats) but does anyone know why post-install (even without installing extra stuff) is such poorly represented by the live cds?
