I really hope that with the PS4 being out and the time lapse that someone has found an option now!

Reddit: HD TV cuts out every couple minutes

Friday 1st of May 2015 01:34:38 AM

I posted this to /r/linuxquestions but was only downvoted. I Just installed Ubuntu 14.04. I've been having problems with my display cutting out for a couple seconds at a time every couple minutes. I have a Radeon HD 6870 connected to a 30" TV through HDMI. It'll cut out to black and then come back in a couple seconds, similar to if i were to change inputs on my TV. Im using the default open-source drivers. Im new to linux so I may be missing something simple. Any help would be appreciated.

TuxMachines: Exton|OS 64 bit with Mate and kernel 3.19.0-14-exton :: build 150428

Friday 1st of May 2015 01:16:34 AM

Exton|OS build 150428 is based on Ubuntu 15.04 64 bit (released April 23, 2015) and Debian Jessie (Debian 8). Exton|OS’s ISO file is a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to a USB pen drive. You can then even run Exton|OS from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! I’ve found two scripts which make the installation to USB very simple. The scripts are quite ingenious. My tests show that they work flawlessly on USB installations of all normal Ubuntu systems. Read my INSTRUCTION how to use the scripts.

Meet Geary: A Thunderbird Email Client Alternative on Linux

On Linux there are a few open source alternatives to the Thunderbird email client. There’s Evolution, KMail, Claws-Mail, Alpine (if you’re really old-school), and a handful of other clients (most of which, don’t live up to anyone’s expectations). There’s also a new kid on the email block. That kid is the brainchild of Yorba. Meet Geary, the new default IMAP email client for the GNOME desktop (and the likes of Elementary OS Freya). Read more
