Reddit: KVM switch woes.

Thursday 22nd of September 2016 02:37:57 PM

I have a Macbook Pro and a PC (dual boots Win10 and Ubuntu). Bought a SIIG KVM switch, single usb port 3.0 to switch my keyboard (as my monitor already has an input source toggle).

The boot loader seems unimpressed with my keyboard when it's ran thru the switch. Additionally, Ubuntu has some fatal errors on startup and seems very grumpy about the ordeal. I'm switching b/w two physical keyboards for the time being, but I wondered if anyone else here has experience with this (would like to tidy my desk as much as possible).

Thursday 22nd of September 2016 12:03:20 PM
This month on The Queue, josephj from LinuxQuestions.org asks:How can I get programmers to join our project?I inherited a project coded in $programming_language when the original developer quit and no one else stepped forward. It is currently hosted on GitHub and has a GPL 3 license.It's a tool I use every day and I don't want to see it die. I know very little $programming_language and very little GUI programming, so I can't maintain it myself.read more

TuxMachines: Mozilla Says Goodbye to Firefox Hello in Firefox 49

Thursday 22nd of September 2016 11:35:13 AM

In October 2014, as part of the Firefox 34 beta release, Mozilla introduced its Firefox Hello communications technology enabling users to make calls directly from the browser. On Sept. 20, 2016, Mozilla formally removed support for Firefox Hello as part of the new Firefox 49 release.

The Mozilla Bugzilla entry for the removal of Firefox Hello provides little insight as to why the communications feature is being pulled from the open-source browser. As it turns out, the Firefox Hello removal is related to shifting priorities at Mozilla.

Libreboot Drama Continues, GNU Might Keep The Project

It's been one week since the Libreboot downstream of Coreboot announced it would leave the GNU and denounced the FSF over supposedly a transgendered individual having been fired by the this free software group. Both Richard Stallman and the FSF denounced these claims made by Libreboot maintainer Leah Rowe. Since then, no actual proof has been presented to back up these claims by the Libreboot maintainer but the drama around it has seemingly continued. Waking up this morning, I received an email as part of a long email chain from Leah Rowe about how the "GNU project refuses to let go of libreboot" and she wrote, "GNU project has told me that they will not allow libreboot to leave GNU. This is quite possibly the biggest insult imaginable, considering what has happened." Read more
