TuxMachines: Google Pixelbook review: Prepared today for the possible reality of tomorrow

Thursday 26th of October 2017 02:44:37 PM

Chromebooks may be most popular in the classroom, but Google wants to ride that train out of schools and into the next phase of students' lives. The Pixelbook is the manifestation of that idea, the piece of hardware that combines Google's revamped design aesthetic and Internet-based software with the needs and wants of a younger generation.

Google stopped selling the original Chromebook Pixel, but seemingly only because the company wants to shine the spotlight on its new Chrome OS laptop. No distractions, no other (potentially) cheaper options: if you're someone who grew up using Chrome OS in school, this $999 convertible is the one you should get if you want to continue using Chrome OS later in life.

Reddit: Music library management tools.

Thursday 26th of October 2017 02:14:18 PM

Hallo /r/Linux

I changed from Win to Linux some years ago and have almost never looked back since then. There's one thing though that I always wanted to check off on my Linux-To-Do-List:

finding the best tools and/or scripts for

  • ripping music
  • converting music from one format to another
  • tagging music
  • applying replayGain
  • creating/moving audio files in a certain folder structure (think of music/<album artist>/<album><year><format>/<tracknumber>-<trackname>.<format>)
  • (finding a cover image and placing it in the folder)

I'd like to know which tools you would recommend and if they play well with scripts. Preferably something that is easy available via a packetmanager. Maybe there's already a comprehensive list of this on the Internet (I didn't find it).

I miss foobar2000 a little - there I could create my own presets of converting files audio, specifying folder, some audio processing (resampling, mixing) and applying replaygain. I know this is in principle possible in Linux, but somehow I've never really found a - good - way to do it. I always end up doing some things with command line, but then manually creating folders and moving files from A to B. (Or I use foobar2000 in wine which makes me feel a little bit ashamed - it's also highly inconvenient to use).

If nobody knows a good answer, maybe we could create it ourselves? Maybe even in the FAQ section?

Reddit: Microsoft Fall Creators update has a great feature that I want in Ubuntu

Thursday 26th of October 2017 10:59:54 AM

The latest update brought a system wide grab and drag for my Wacom tablet. This means I can tap and hold any view that has a scrollbar and throw it around like a touch screen, even in browsers (without the need of an extension).

Is there a way to implement that in Ubuntu?

KDE Student Programs is pleased to announce the 2018 Season of KDE for those who want to participate in mentored projects that enhance KDE in some way.

In the past few years, SoK participants have not only contributed new application features but have also developed the KDE Continuous Integration System, statistical reports for developers, a web framework, ported KDE Applications, created documentation and lots and lots of other work.

How To Get Started With The Ubuntu Linux Distro

The Linux operating system has evolved from a niche audience to widespread popularity since its creation in the mid 1990s, and with good reason. Once upon a time, that installation process was a challenge, even for those who had plenty of experience with such tasks. The modern day Linux, however, has come a very long way. To that end, the installation of most Linux distributions is about as easy as installing an application. If you can install Microsoft Office or Adobe Photoshop, you can install Linux. Here, we'll walk you through the process of installing Ubuntu Linux 17.04, which is widely considered one of the most user-friendly distributions. (A distribution is a variation of Linux, and there are hundreds and hundreds to choose from.) Read more

'Turbo Boost Max 3.0' and Mesa 17.2.4

  • Turbo Boost Max 3.0 Support For Skylake Fixed With Linux 4.15
    The platform-drivers-x86 updates have been sent in for Linux 4.15 and include a range of improvements for Intel hardware support. One of the bigger items is support for Skylake CPUs with Turbo Boost Max 3.0.
  • Mesa 17.2.4 Graphics Stack Lands for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 17.10 Gamers
    Canonical's Timo Aaltonen reports on the availability of the Mesa 17.2.4 open-source graphics drivers stack on the X-SWAT updates PPA for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 17.10 systems. Ubuntu systems have always lagged behind the development of the Mesa 3D Graphics Library, the Linux graphics stack containing open-source drivers for Intel, AMD Radeon, and Nvidia GPUs, but they usually catch up with it through a specially crafted PPA (Personal Package Archive) repository that can be easily installed by users.
