TuxMachines: How to play Windows games in Linux

Monday 16th of July 2018 05:37:46 PM

Game developers are increasingly taking advantage of the growing market in Linux gaming, but that’s not always been the case, and even now some games aren’t released outside of Windows. Thanks to a clever tool called Wine, though, you can run many Windows games—and other apps, including Office—as though they were native to Linux.

Wine provides a skeletal virtual version of Windows, inside which you install extra components and perform various tweaks (for example, selecting which version of Windows you want to emulate) to get your app working. Sadly, it’s not a silver bullet that will get all your Windows games working in Linux, but it should be able to give you access to at least some of them.

TuxMachines: How to enable developer mode on a Chrome OS tablet (and install Linux using Crouton)

Monday 16th of July 2018 05:33:32 PM

Google’s Chrome OS is designed to be a relatively secure, simple operating system that’s easy to use and hard to mess up. But you can run stable channel, beta channel, or dev channel software on any Chromebook depending on whether you want the safest experience or buggy, bleeding-edge features.

There’s also an option called Developer Mode, which is different from the dev channel. It allows you to access files and settings that are normally protected and use a command shell to explore the system. It’s designed for developers and advanced users only, since it increases the chances that you’ll break your Chromebook. But enabling Developer Mode is also a prerequisite for using one my favorite Chrome OS hacks: a tool called Crouton that allows you to install Ubuntu or another GNU/Linux distribution and run it alongside Chrome OS.

Reddit: HELP : Sudden shutdown after lid opening or coming out of Suspend on Ubuntu

Monday 16th of July 2018 05:28:26 PM

Hi !

I have a problem on my Ubuntu 18.04. It's a problem that I already had on eOS before uninstalling it. Everytime I suspend my PC, with the power button or by closing the lid, when I try to resume using it, it works fine for like ~30sec and then immediately shuts down (not in a normal way, but as if I had just took out the battery or the power cable).

I'm using a Laptop, CPU is an i3 (3217U), Graphic card is the default Intel 4000.

Thanks for help.

Reddit: Open Source Raster Mosaics Software

Monday 16th of July 2018 02:06:13 PM

Is there any open source software that can stitch jpeg files together to create a mosaic dataset that runs well on Ubuntu 18.04? I have 100s -> 1000s of photos (taken with DJI Inspire) in each dataset that are geo-referenced with lat. and long. Rasterio came up but I don't know how well that works. Does anyone have experience with Rasterio or anything else that will create the datasets. Any help is appreciated, Thanks!
