LXer: Computing at full capacity

Monday 3rd of August 2015 01:01:32 AM
"Docker is very portable—if you can run it on Linux, you can run it on Docker—and it doesn't care if you're running it on a local data center, a private cloud, or on Amazon. With containers, we don't need to do something complicated like run a VM inside another VM. Docker gives us a lightweight way to let people use the environment that's already set up."

Reddit: Having issues verifying Debian 8.1 (Jessie/amd64)

Sunday 2nd of August 2015 07:41:47 AM

Is anyone else having this problem? I am trying to verify the signatures of the checksums provided at http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/8.1.0/amd64/bt-cd/

I am using KeyID 6294BE9B, which I retrieved using GPA, part of gpg4win, available here: https://www.debian.org/CD/verify

I am getting a bad signature on all of the .sign files when using this key. I have even tried signing the public key with my own private key, it shows fully valid, but I still have the same issue. Can anyone help?

Why you should ditch OpenOffice and use the free LibreOffice suite

OpenOffice was the first big, mainstream free software competitor to Microsoft Office, and because of that, it still has mainstream name recognition—which is a problem. Developers have almost all moved to LibreOffice, the spiritual successor to OpenOffice. But OpenOffice continues to be operated as its own project, seeing little development and only drawing potential LibreOffice users to a defunct piece of software. Read more

  • KDE Plasma 5.4 Enhances Linux Desktop Experience
    The K Desktop Environment (KDE) is one of the earliest Linux desktop environments, dating all the way back to 1996, predating even the popular GNOME desktop environment, which was started in 1999. On Aug. 25, the core KDE desktop, Plasma, got an incremental update to version 5.4 that builds on the innovations that the first Plasma 5 release introduced in July. Among the many changes that users will notice with Plasma 5.4 are more than 1,400 new icons for all KDE applications, providing a more streamlined, modern look and feel to the desktop. Also new to Plasma 5.4 is an optional Application Dashboard that provides a different way to open up applications. Finding an application, or anything else on the KDE desktop, is also improved by way of enhanced search history in the integrated KRunner search tool that is part of the desktop. Plus, the 5.4 update now provides initial support for the Wayland display server that is intended to be a replacement for the decade-old X-Window server. KDE as a desktop environment is available on multiple Linux distributions, including Ubuntu, Fedora and openSUSE. In this slide show, eWEEK examines some of the key features of the KDE Plasma 5.4 desktop.
  • KDE Sprints - who wins?
    To start with, KDE sprints are intensive sessions centered around coding. They take place in person over several days, during which time skillful developers eat, drink and sleep code. There are breaks to refresh and gain perspective, but mostly sprints involve hard, focused work. All of this developer time and effort is unpaid. However travel expenses for some developers are covered by KDE. KDE is a frugal organization with comparatively low administrative costs, and only one paid person who works part time. So the money donated for sprints goes to cover actual expenses. Who gets the money? Almost all of it goes to transportation companies.
