TuxMachines: Choosing Linux Desktops: Customizers vs. Launchers

Wednesday 6th of April 2016 11:08:34 AM

Asked to recommend a Linux desktop, users respond in a number of ways. Many recommend their own preferences. Others suggest the desktop environment that they believe is closest in appearance and function to Windows or OS X.

A while ago, though, I realized that the seven major Linux desktops can be ranked on a spectrum from the highly customizable to those that are little more than launchers for their applications.

Wednesday 6th of April 2016 10:59:55 AM

The fallout from last week's Canonical-Microsoft announcement continues to rain. First reactions ranged from enthusiastic to shocked and this week distrust is a common theme. Elsewhere, the KDE project presented its new and improved philosophy and is working on the mission statement. Apparently XScreenSaver is causing a bit of a kerfuffle in Debianland and Bruce Byfield ranked desktops from most customizable to "little more than launchers."

Reddit: How do you manage multiple email accounts?

Wednesday 6th of April 2016 09:56:34 AM

I have several gmail accounts, but I don't like much thunderbird, and I also don't like to have several tabs in my browser open that points to each email account. I thought in open a main gmail account, but I realized that the mail account just has 15GB of space. So, the sum of all email accounts are bigger that 15GB. Therefore, I don't know what to do. Who do you people do to manage several mail accounts?

  • Security is a process, not a reaction

    If this sounds familiar, you are probably running a web application of some kind. Maybe your whole business depends on it. Maybe you didn't hear about the latest world-on-fire vulnerability. Panic.

    How do you keep up with security issues when everything is happening so fast? Which parts of your technical stack are the most at risk? Is the customer data safe? Do you really need to care?

    Attackers can easily bypass the patch to exploit a vulnerability that allows them to escape from the Java security sandbox

  • FBI Says a Mysterious Hacking Group Has Had Access to US Govt Files for Years

    The feds warned that “a group of malicious cyber actors,” whom security experts believe to be the government-sponsored hacking group known as APT6, “have compromised and stolen sensitive information from various government and commercial networks” since at least 2011, according to an FBI alert obtained by Motherboard.

    The alert, which is also available online, shows that foreign government hackers are still successfully hacking and stealing data from US government’s servers, their activities going unnoticed for years. This comes months after the US government revealed that a group of hackers, widely believed to be working for the Chinese government, had for more than a year infiltrated the computer systems of the Office of Personnel Management, or OPM. In the process, they stole highly sensitive data about several millions of government workers and even spies.

Reddit: The idiocy of some users in the Linux community

Wednesday 6th of April 2016 07:33:40 AM

Example: Extensions in Firefox share the same namespace.

and their answer after revealing that Firebug or NoScript can be used to hack your computer during an attack on your machine...

"Tails users shouldn't be installing sketchy Firefox extensions."

And then he downvotes the poster.

Btw. the username is DublinBen and people like him are disgrace to the Linux community.

Please, don't attack/downvote people who ask questions or are skeptical or might be using Chromium instead of Firefox. Thank you.

    Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. There’s a new release every week. Here are the highlights from this weeks 0.104 release.
  • FFmpeg 3.0.2 "Einstein" Multimedia Framework Released with Updated Components
    Today, April 28, 2016, the development team behind the popular FFmpeg open-source and cross-platform multimedia framework has released the second maintenance release in the stable FFmpeg 3.0 "Einstein" series. FFmpeg 3.0 was a massive release announced in mid-February, which brought in numerous existing changes, including support for decoding and encoding Common Encryption (CENC) MP4 files, support for decoding DXV streams, as well as support for decoding Screenpresso SPV1 streams.
  • Using bubblewrap in xdg-app
    At the core of xdg-app is a small helper binary that uses Linux features like namespaces to set up sandbox for the application. The main difference between this helper and a full-blown container system is that it runs entirely as the user. It does not require root privileges, and can never allow you to get access to things you would not otherwise have.
  • Build System Fallbacks
    If you are using Builder from git (such as via jhbuild) or from the gnome-builder-3-20 branch (what will become 3.20.4) you can use Builder with the fallback build system. This is essentially our “NULL” build system and has been around forever. But today, these branches learned something so stupidly obvious I’m ashamed I didn’t do it 6 months ago when implementing Build Configurations.
