It's been a while since we heard about Papyros, the Linux distribution that used the Material Design concepts from Google, but developers have released a short video that illustrates the work they've done so far.
HP is one of the big companies that provide users with computers that came with Ubuntu pre-installed, and now those PCs are going to be sold in Russia as well.
Despite recent reports suggesting the contrary, Linux Mint isn’t committed to avoiding systemd, the controversial project taking Linux by storm. In fact, Clement Lefebvre, Linux Mint’s project leader, expects the next major releases of Linux Mint to use systemd by default.
No, Linux Mint isn’t switching to systemd immediately. The Linux Mint 17.x series and Linux Mint Debian Edition 2 will continue to use Upstart and SysV init, with systemd available as an option you can choose yourself. Linux Mint is giving systemd some time to mature before switching, but—with upstream projects and the Linux ecosystem as a whole moving towards systemd—Mint realizes it doesn’t have an option in the long term.
Samsung unveiled a series of IoT-focused “Artik” SoCs and modules, including dual- and octa-core COMs that integrate wireless radios and run Yocto Linux.
After Samsung acquired home automation hub vendor SmartThings, we imagined it would quickly convert the RTOS-based system to Tizen Linux. Instead the Gen 2 SmartThings hub announced in January ran another Linux build. The same goes for Samsung’s ambitious new Artik system-on-chip and computer-on-module platform for Internet of Things, which runs Yocto Linux. There was no mention of Tizen in the Artik announcement. although Samsung revealed new details on its next-gen Tizen-based round-faced Gear watch.
Yesterday on Datamation, Matt Hartley wrote what could best be described as a reminder piece about the folks using Windows XP at home or in small businesses having options when it comes to replacing that particular operating system, and that the best option — go ahead and say it with me — is Linux.
Hartley mentions an adequate lineup of distros — Linux Mint, Ubuntu MATE, PCLinuxOS, and Puppy Linux (okay, for the really old machines, I’ll go with that one) — but in the wide world of Linux, there are more. Several more. Okay, maybe more than several more.

suNotify sends the configured email address an alert every time the command sudo is used. The email contains the command in which sudo was used.
I built this program as a tripwire to see if anyone is ever messing with my system. if i am getting emails of sudo being used and im not there something is up. Written in python runs on linux
Edit: added a system to execute an array of programs after email is sent. hopefully this adds more flexibility and functionality.submitted by yellomango

I'm looking for a peer review of my config files if there are any takers. I'm not new to Linux, but I am new to setting up this portion of the system.
I believe this is all I need configured for using PAM to authenticate and give SSH & sudo access. Pleae let me know if you have anything thoughts as to what needs to be changed.
One thing I ran into and the reason I'm asking for a peer review is the pam_cracklib.so and if I should use it instead of defining the password requirements in pam_unix.so.submitted by mouseclone
