LXer: Ripe Linux Nits To Pick

Saturday 26th of July 2014 11:44:02 AM
Since at least the Maya 13 release we’ve had fits with the Nvidia driver and fonts in KDE. Sure the recommended driver installs fine, but upon the mandatory reboot, all is not well in Linuxland. While the actual desktop and the bottom panel display properly, anything that has anything to do with fonts is wonky. They are huge.

Reddit: Are there any OSS/Linux alternatives to Office 365?

Saturday 26th of July 2014 10:26:59 AM

A small company has asked me to help them with their IT. They want a new website, e-mail hosting, new desktop OS (currently running XP) an office suite and they want to collaborate online from anywhere.

Office 365 seems perfect for all these things, yet I would like to know all the options out there. Google Apps for business is not an option, because they want to work with an office suite that offers a desktop client.

They currently have 4 desktop computers running: Windows XP, MS Office 2007 and MS Internet Explorer. They don't use any specific software. I have also set up 1 computer running: Windows XP, Libre Office and Firefox and they seem to work fine on it.

Their e-mail is hosted on a server from an other company that they share the building with. Their website is run by a local hosting company, the hosting company charges them €200,00 per year for a free Joomla template website. (the website doesn't get a lot of traffic, well they don't know if they do cause they don't use analytic software)

LXer: How do team dynamics relate to open source?

Saturday 26th of July 2014 09:49:40 AM
Recently I had the opportunity to watch a soccer game (football to the majority of the world). This game was one of the most amazing displays of team effort I’ve ever had the privilege of watching. (Here’s an obligatory link if you don’t know to which game I refer). Almost every score was predicated with a series of passes and touches by various players. There was a level of unselfish play and team spirit I don’t often see when observing professional sports.read more

Reddit: A question to Linux developers

Saturday 26th of July 2014 08:38:35 AM

Hey guys and gals, when you are helping develop your Linux distro of choice, do you tend to only pick and choose tasks that interest you or do you like to tackle issues that may be of no interest to yourself?

I know that there are so many things to be done when it comes to building a distro, and I'm curious how many people pick and choose, and how many just knock out the tasks, regardless of their personal interest in the them.

Thanks.

Reddit: 4TB drive support

Saturday 26th of July 2014 08:33:16 AM

So I have recent got a 4TB WD RED that I want to use in a Linux box until I build my NAS. The the computer it is in is a little bit of a dabble in Linux and so I'm just running Ubuntu however I can't get the 4TB drive to even show up to format it. I am fast running out of space for my media. Any suggestions?

LXer: Wireless speakers stream audio from web and WLAN

Saturday 26th of July 2014 06:00:56 AM
Denon debuted a line of Sonos-like wireless multi-room HiFi speakers that stream audio from both Internet and local sources, and run on embedded Linux. Like the similarly Linux-powered devices available from Sonos, Denon’s “Heos” wireless streaming speakers offer multi-room (multi-speaker) synchronized audio, and can deliver multiple audio streams from disparate sources to individual speakers or stereo-configured speaker pairs distributed around the home.

Reddit: Anyone know of a good vpn setup that doesn't require a tun/tap device?

Saturday 26th of July 2014 03:55:08 AM

I am playing with setting up a private logmein clone to manage a hand full of roaming raspberry pi boxes. Internally I have been pretty successful with openvpn + tightvnc server on the pi and apache + novnc on my internal server.

But my test server isn't accessible to the outside world, and my VPS provider refuses to provide me tun/tap support. So does anyone know of a good replacement for openvpn that doesn't require a kernel module?

I have been playing with ssh and port forwarding with only minor stability issues. But when I scale this up to hundreds of deployed devices I don't want to have to manually assign ports for each device and maintain an assignment list to avoid port forwarding conflicts.

Eclipse Luna for Fedora 20

If you are a Fedora Eclipse user, then you're probably saddened since the release of Eclipse Luna (4.4) because you are still using Eclipse Kepler (4.3) on Fedora 20. Well, be saddened no longer because Eclipse Luna is now available for Fedora 20 as a software collection! A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website. The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package. Read more
