TuxMachines: Games for GNU/Linux

Monday 14th of November 2016 03:30:08 AM
  • ETLegacy Continues Advancing Enemy Territory With OpenGL 3, OpenAL Surround Sound

    One of my favorite Linux-native games of all time would definitely be Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. Wonderful memories of that excellent id Tech 3 game and back when I had time to game on Linux, when not being challenged by early Linux GPU driver issues. This game continues to live on via the community ETLegacy open-source project and recently did issue a major update.

    A Phoronix reader pointed out this week that back in September was the ETLegacy 2.75 release. We have covered ETLegacy previously as an open-source project working on a fully-compatible client and server for Enemy Territory based off the open-sourced id Tech 3 engine code. The past few years ETLegacy has been making the game more modern and supported via SDL work, Ogg Vorbis support, optimizations, engine improvements, Lua scripting, and other features not dreamed of back when this game was released in 2003.

  • Vendetta Online 1.8.396 MMORPG Released for Linux, Mac, Windows, and Andriod

    Guild Software developers are proud to announce this past weekend the release of a new maintenance update for their popular, cross-platform, and VR-ready Vendetta Online 1.8 massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG).

    Vendetta Online 1.8.396 is here exactly two weeks after the 1.8.395 release to finally implement monitoring functionality to all empty sectors in the Capitol systems, but only those that contain Training Sectors. Also, it adds various tweaks to the management of powercell energy in capital ships during jump-out, and addresses an issue with the menu, which wasn't visible during automatic generation of account conversion on mobile devices.

TuxMachines: You Can’t Move Window Controls to the Right on Ubuntu

Monday 14th of November 2016 03:25:13 AM

Many of you may recall that this switch wasn’t without controversy. Many users were not happy with the change, which they felt was too ‘mac-esque’ and a break with conventional window button placement.

The good news was that any one who didn’t like the default placement could change the position of window control buttons back to right-hand side. An entire crop of 3rd-party tools, hacks and apps grew up with this option present among them Unity Tweak Tool.

As the years have passed, so too has the memory of this drama. Most of us have long since gotten used to left-aligned window controls, and would find a sudden change back to the right almost as jarring!

One of our Twitter followers got in touch with us this weekend to ask how to move the window buttons to the right in Ubuntu...

TuxMachines: KDE Neon Users Urged to Upgrade Their Systems or Reinstall the Linux Distro

Monday 14th of November 2016 03:20:18 AM

A few moments ago, KDE Neon project leader and long-time KDE developer Jonathan Riddell published a security advisory to inform users of the KDE Neon GNU/Linux distribution about an insecure package archive.

According to the security advisory, it would appear that the package archive of the KDE Neon operating system was misconfigured in such a way that it could allow anyone to upload any package to it. Most probably, no one uploaded any package there, but, just in case, the maintainers have emptied the archives and remove all the ISO images.

Developer Ikey Doherty tells Softpedia that Budgie 11 is a major update, with a modular architecture, featuring a reacher UI (User Interface), actionable notifications, and multi-monitor support for the panel.

Reddit: Portable, persistant, live and amnesiac? Is it Possible?

Monday 14th of November 2016 02:43:59 AM

I'd like to run a distro (Arch? Debian?) that can be configured to use no hard swap (that's the main requirement for amnesiac, right?), live on a USB (does that mean it's not live anymore? Maybe... that term confused me when I stopped burning CD/DVDs...), allow me to install things like graphics drivers and a password manager, etc for my home computer (without having to install every time I boot) and be able to run on any x86/64 computer with an encrypted data partition on the drive (unless I can encrypt the entire drive save for the boot partition? Is this possible either?)

I'm currently running OS X and can route traffic thru TOR, block cookies and trackers, browse incognito or on TOR browser, but there's still a trace locally of everything I do. I'd like some anonymity and security.

Thanks in advance!

Red Hat News

  • Building MySQL DBaaS on OpenStack And Ceph Clouds
    With a properly configured OpenStack deployment and Red Hat Ceph storage backend, DBaaS clients merely go to a self-service interface and request the number and configuration of databases they require. OpenStack dynamically provisions the required storage capacity from the appropriate Ceph storage pool. No more manual placement of these database instances on MySQL clusters of various shapes and sizes. This manual exercise was a bit like playing the old Tetris game, trying to fit new database instances into fixed-sized clusters, followed by moving or rearranging them to new clusters when they outgrew available capacity.

7 cool little open source projects that stood out in 2016

In the early days of the open source movement, a lot of the attention was on operating systems, and later on large content management systems. These days, containers are mentioned regularly even in mainstream news outlets. The big tech stories are great, but they miss the other great activity in the niches of the open source space. I've rounded up seven interesting lesser-known projects from the past year. You can see more articles about projects like this in my Nooks and Crannies column. Read more
