softpedia: Canonical has just announced that Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) Beta has been released and is now ready for testing.
Greetings reddit! I have a large music collection in mp3 format and want to play that collection on my Android smartphone. Since the collection is too large to fit on the phone's internal storage, I need some nice technique to share that music. I want to be able to select songs, copy them to my smartphone and then listen to these songs on-the-go. This would be doable using file sharing, but that is kind of unergonomic. Is there a better solution? Something like DLNA sharing, but with better offline support? Thanks for any answers!submitted by real_jeeger

Review When the GNOME 3.x desktop arrived it was, frankly, unusable. It wasn't so much the radical departure from past desktop environments, as the fact that essential things did not work properly or, more frustratingly, had been deemed unnecessary.
Fast-forward three years and while GNOME 3.12 – released Wednesday – still isn't the infinitely customisable experience of GNOME 2.x, not only has the GNOME Shell progressed by leaps and bounds but it now makes for a stable, productive desktop environment.
One of the great things about releasing early and often is that eventually things improve; sometimes things improve so slowly you hardly notice it until a release like GNOME 3.12 rolls around, but they improve nonetheless.
Today's news search turned up quite a bit of data. Red Hat released their quarterly earnings this afternoon and while observers expected good news, some are now reporting not so much. ZDNet.com has two stories of interest today, the first is from Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols reporting on the Linux Collaboration Summit and the other is Jamie Watson's hands-on review of Makulu Linux 5 Xfce. He said it was the most fun as one could have with Linux!
Red Hat did this because it believes there are three very different ways that 70 to 80 percent people tend to use Red Hat Linux distros. Businesses that want a lot of support and device and staff certification pay for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Fedora is for users, often developers who use the latest and greatest Linux and open-source software and want to be ahead of the curve. CentOS is for Linux experts who can handle their own support and want a stable platform.
I've been looking for resources on writing and piping scripts into Lemonboy's bar, but apparently my Google-Fu skills are lacking as I can't really find any helpful results. If someone could point me in the right direction, I'd be very grateful.

I'm running linux 12.10 and my ipod has worked for the year+ that i've been running linux until 2 days ago. The ipod screen is showing the "connected" screen meaning something is happening but nothing shows up on the lap top. just curious if there's anything i can do without factory reseting the ipod.
