TuxMachines: Huawei CEO: Will keep using Android as long as it's open

Saturday 25th of June 2016 09:22:28 PM

He made the said comment in a Weibo post, where-in he also noted that Google's mobile OS has promoted the development of smartphones, which in turn has benefited consumers.

Interestingly, he didn't say anything about whether or not Huawei is developing an in-house mobile OS - said to be called Kirin OS. His silence on the matter, though, can be taken as a confirmation of sorts, especially when his comment reflects the possibility of Google restricting the companies’ freedom with Android in future.

TuxMachines: KDE Leftovers

Saturday 25th of June 2016 09:18:43 PM
  • Two in one

    As you may know (unless you’ve been living in Alpha Centauri for the past century) the openSUSE community KDE team publishes LiveCD images for those willing to test the latest state of KDE software from the git master branches without having to break machines, causing a zombie apocalypse and so on. This post highlights the most recent developments in the area.

  • Krita Post-Kickstarter News

    The campaign season is over, and we’re slowly recovering and getting back into a productive groove of coding, coding, coding and more. Kickstarter has transferred €34,594.37 to our bank account, and we’ve started planning the next releases. Time for an update!

  • Akademy! and fundraising
  • Plasma 5.6 – Clean installation impression

    I was wondering if i should just be silent, since this is a negative post about Plasma. On the other hand we should not be afraid negative critics, learn from them, improve and make a better product. With that in mind, I decided to write this post anyway in hopes that it will ultimately improve the situation where improvements would be nice.

TuxMachines: Software (IceCat, Xen Orchestra, Attic, and ownCloud Client)

Saturday 25th of June 2016 09:14:02 PM
  • IceCat 38.8.0 release

    GNUzilla is the GNU version of the Mozilla suite, and GNU IceCat is the GNU version of the Firefox browser. Its main advantage is an ethical one: it is entirely free software. While the Firefox source code from the Mozilla project is free software, they distribute and recommend non-free software as plug-ins and addons. Also their trademark license restricts distribution in several ways incompatible with freedom 0.

  • Xen Orchestra 5.0 Released With Several New Features
  • Let Attic Deduplicate and Store your Backups

    Data loss is one of those things we never want to worry about. To that end we go to great lengths to find new techniques and software packages to ensure those precious bits of data are safely backed up to various local and remote media.

  • ownCloud Client 2.2.x

    A couple of weeks ago we released another significant milestone of the ownCloud Client, called version 2.2.0, followed by two small maintenance releases.

TuxMachines: Fedora 24 Pushes Linux Boundaries

Saturday 25th of June 2016 09:10:52 PM

Fedora Linux is the community version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, or RHEL. Fedora 24 is comprised of a set of base packages that form the foundation of three distinct editions: Fedora 24 Cloud, Fedora 24 Server and Fedora 24 Workstation.

Delayed four times during its development cycle, Fedora 24 includes glibc 2.23 for better performance, and improvements to POSIX compliance and GNU Compiler Collection 6. All base packages have been rebuilt with GCC 6, providing better code optimization across all Fedora 24 editions, and improving the overall stability of each addition.

LXer: Peppermint OS 7 Screenshot Tour

Saturday 25th of June 2016 05:03:58 PM
Team Peppermint are pleased to announce our latest operating system Peppermint 7. It comes in both 32-bit and 64-bit editions with the latter having full UEFI/GPT/Secure Boot support baked in, a new version of Ice (our in-house Site Specific Browser framework) is also included with full Firefox web browser support, as well as Chromium. Along with the shift to the 16.04 code base, Peppermint 7 continues our policy of choosing the best components from other desktop environments, wherever that may be, and integrating them into a cohesive whole with our own software. This time around, whilst staying with LXDE core session management for lightness and speed, we've listened to our users who demanded a more modern, functional, and customizable main menu and switched out LXPanel

Reddit: ELI5: Does someone have a robust or even working way to pass files and paths from ZSH to external programs?

Saturday 25th of June 2016 02:23:38 PM

I've used zsh for over 2 years now and I've been using bash as a crutch whenever I need to pass files or paths to external programs.

Just getting mv to work in a sane way has proven impossible. I've tried every type of arg, bracket, modifier, shell opt etc.

I'm seriously going to lose my mind... I spent an hour last night and I couldn't even alias a simple mv command. I can't remember the last time I did something that made me almost hate Linux... but this is doing it.
