Reddit: I'm a newbie. Help?

Sunday 24th of July 2016 04:06:14 AM

Hello r / linux , I am a born and bred Windows user, and currently am running Windows 10. I primarily use my PC for watching YouTube, browsing social media, writing, shopping, and occasional gaming. And with worsening news of Microsoft being a bunch of peeping Toms I kinda wanna get away from them. Is Linux worth it for just privacy? Or should I just suck it up. Also I've heard of dual-booting but don't quite understand it. For what I do what Linux disto is best for me? Or is it good for me at all? Thanks in advance.

(Edit: could I download tails for privacy and steam OS for gaming and then dual boot them?)

Reddit: Give my new Youtube channel some love?

Sunday 24th of July 2016 03:56:00 AM

Hi, redditers! I'm a long time Linux user and recently I just made a YouTube channel. My main focus on this channel is Linux. I see my videos somewhat similar to Spatry and the deceased midfingr. I was inspired by midfingr, and I'm sad that he's now gone. I've been an active Manjaro forum user since 2012 and recently contributed as the maintainer of linux-rt-manjaro kernel. My main target audience are those who know basic stuffs in using the terminal, who are keen to learn new things. I'm not doing any distro review as there are way too much of those channels out there already. So if you're somewhat familiar with Arch Linux and its family, you love working with the terminal, and most importantly enjoy midfingr's videos, please come and visit my channel. This channel is just one week old, so the contents are not really that much currently. But I'll try my best to give you contents frequently. Subcribe to me if you find yourself comfortable in the channel. I'm not doing this for money, I sincerely only want to help people out to learn new stuffs. But there will be ads in my videos, only to motivate myself to keep improving the videos quality. I don't know if this is the right place to share this post, I sincerely apologize if I'm at the wrong place. So here's my channel:

PS: I'm also a gamer, so expect gaming on Linux videos on my channel. :) Thank you, you guys are awesome!

Reddit: I have a otherwise worthless netbook, Debian, and a 3 1/2 year old.

Sunday 24th of July 2016 01:43:48 AM

My girlfriend doesn't think it can be done, I do.

I have until December to teach her son how to use a computer, if I am able, she will fund his first build.

The netbook only has Internet access when hardwired, and even then I've removed all Web browsers. If it gets broken there is no loss(was free). So far I've got a few games installed, supertux, minetest, and tuxcart.

What other software is available/recommended for teaching him how to use a keyboard/mouse that will appear to be fun, but also develop the skills we all use without a thought?

TuxMachines: Ubuntu tablet and smartphone: a personal "mini" review

Sunday 24th of July 2016 01:41:23 AM

So when Ubuntu and Canonical revealed they were partnering with actual, big manufacturers for Ubuntu mobile devices, a spark of hope was rekindled in my heart. Let it be clear, I am by no means an Ubuntu user, not even a fan. I left the fold nearly a decade ago, after having spent quite some time using and contributing to Kubuntu (to the point of becoming a certified “member” even, though I never ascended to the Council). In terms of loyalties and usage, I am a KDE user (and “helper”) foremost. I use Fedora because it just works for me, for now. So, yes, an Ubuntu Touch device would be another compromise for me, but it would be the smallest one. Or so I hoped.

Reddit: Which free softwares do you donate to?

Sunday 24th of July 2016 12:33:32 AM

First off, this sub may not be the perfect sub for the above question but I guess being in the Linux community people are using lots of free softwares. Sorry if you think it's inappropriate here.

Recently I figured that now I'm having a full time job after graduation from university, it would be a good idea to donate money to support free softwares which I frequently use. But then I found that I don't know which to donate with. Anyway I just gave my first donation (just $2, not much) to syncthing.

So which free softwares do you donate to, or you think need donations? I'm also considering donation to VLC and Mozilla but I'm not sure if these large organizations need individual donations (I know they accept).

And besides donation, how about translation?

LXer: EFF Lawsuit Challenges DMCA's Digital Locks Provision As First Amendment Violation

Sunday 24th of July 2016 12:12:05 AM
Computer security professor Matthew Green and famed hardware hacker Bunnie Huang have teamed up with the EFF to sue the US government, challenging the constitutionality of Section 1201 of the DMCA, also known as the "anti-circumvention" clause. As we've discussed for many years, 1201 makes it against the law to "manufacture, import, offer to the public, provide, or otherwise traffic in any technology, product, service, device, component, or part thereof" that is designed to "circumvent" DRM or other "technological protection measures." There are all sorts of problems with this part of the law, including the fact that it doesn't matter why you have that tool or why you're circumventing the DRM. For example, it would still be considered infringement if you cracked DRM on a public domain work. That's... insane.

  • New "remi-php71" repository
  • PHP on the road to the 7.1.0 release
  • First round of Fedora 24 Updated Lives now available. (torrents expected later this week)

    As noted by my colleague on his blog the first round of F24 Updated Lives are now available and carry the date 20160720, Also as mentioned last week on his blog F23 Respins are not going to be actively made, however we and the rest of the volunteer team will field off-off requests as time and resources permit. We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)

  • Snappy Packaging Happenings In The Fedora, Arch Space

    This week Canonical hosted a Snappy Sprint in Heidelberg, Germany where they worked to further their new package management solution originally spearheaded for Ubuntu Touch. This wasn't an Ubuntu-only event, but Canonical did invite other distribution stakeholders.

    Coming out of this week's event were at least positive moments to share for both Arch and Fedora developers. The Arch snaps package guy made progress on snap confinement on Arch. Currently when using Snaps on Arch, there isn't any confinement support, which defeats some of the purpose. There isn't any confinement support since it relies upon some functionality in the Ubuntu-patched AppArmor with that code not yet being mainlined. Arch's Timothy Redaelli has got those AppArmor patches now running via some AUR packages. Thus it's possible to get snap confinement working on Arch, but it's not yet too pleasant of an experience.

  • PSPP 0.10.2 has been released
    I'm very pleased to announce the release of a new version of GNU PSPP. PSPP is a program for statistical analysis of sampled data. It is a free replacement for the proprietary program SPSS.
  • Skype For Linux Alpha Update Adds ‘Close to Tray’, Call Settings, More
  • Hamster-GTK 0.10.0 Released
    Just a few seconds ago the initial release of Hamster-GTK, version 0.10.0, has been uploaded to the cheese shop. That means that after the rewritten backend codebase hamster-lib has been out in the wild for a few days by now you can now have a first look at a reimplementation of the original hamster 2.0 GUI. It will come as no surprise that this current early version is rather unpolished and leaves a lot to be desired. However, if you are familiar with legacy hamster 2.0 aka hamster-time-tracker you will surely see some major resemblance.
  • Core improvements in digiKam 5.0
    Version 5.0.0 of the digiKam image-management application was released on July 5. In many respects, the road from the 4.x series to the new 5.0 release consisted of patches and rewrites to internal components that users are not likely to notice at first glance. But the effort places digiKam in a better position for future development, and despite the lack of glamorous new features, some of the changes will make users' lives easier as well. For context, digiKam 4.0 was released in May of 2014, meaning it has been over two full years since the last major version-number bump. While every free-software project is different, it was a long development cycle for digiKam, which (for example) had released 4.0 just one year after 3.0. The big hurdle for the 5.0 development cycle was porting the code to Qt5. While migrating to a new release of a toolkit always poses challenges, the digiKam team decided to take the opportunity to move away from dependencies on KDE libraries. In many cases, that effort meant refactoring the code or changing internal APIs to directly use Qt interfaces rather than their KDE equivalents. But, in a few instances, it meant reimplementing functionality directly in digiKam.

  • Docker adds orchestration and more at DockerCon 2016
    DockerCon 2016, held in Seattle in June, included many new feature and product announcements from Docker Inc. and the Docker project. The main keynote of DockerCon [YouTube] featured Docker Inc. staff announcing and demonstrating the features of Docker 1.12, currently in its release-candidate phase. As with the prior 1.11 release, the new version includes major changes in the Docker architecture and tooling. Among the new features are an integrated orchestration stack, new encryption support, integrated cluster networking, and better Mac support. The conference hosted 4000 attendees, including vendors like Microsoft, CoreOS, HashiCorp, and Red Hat, as well as staff from Docker-using companies like Capital One, ADP, and Cisco. While there were many technical and marketing sessions at DockerCon, the main feature announcements were given in the keynotes. As with other articles on Docker, the project and product are referred to as "Docker," while the company is "Docker Inc."

    In addition to my own thoughts, the article includes insights from a number of other Linux game porters including Leszek Godlewski (Painkiller Hell & Damnation, Deadfall Adventures), Ryan "icculus" Gordon (StarBreak, Left 4 Dead 2, Unreal Tournament 2004, Another World, Cogs, Goat Simulator), David Gow (Keen Dreams, Multiwinia), Ethan Lee (Salt & Sanctuary, Hiden in Plain Sight, HackNet, Waveform, Dust: An Elysian Tail) and Aaron Melcher (Outland, La-Mulana, Hyper Light Drifter, Darkest Dungeon). Betweem them, they offer a great range of attitudes and approaches that support and provide counterpoint to my own experiences.
