TuxMachines: Global Shortcuts and the Lock Screen

Friday 6th of February 2015 06:54:13 PM

With Plasma 5 our lock screen architecture changed significantly. For example we do no longer support screen saver hacks or widgets on top of the locked screen. Both are very unlikely to make a return in future releases. This means that bug reports against the old infrastructure might no longer apply to our current code base. Two weeks ago I went through all bug reports and feature requests to evaluate whether they still apply to our new infrastructure or should be closed.

TuxMachines: The First Ubuntu Phone Won't Rely On Apps. Here's Why That's Brilliant

Friday 6th of February 2015 06:29:39 PM

The mobile market is saturated. Any new entrants are doomed from the start. And if you need proof, just look at Windows Phone or BlackBerry. The problem is that you need an app ecosystem to gain market share, but you need market share in order to entice developers to your platform.

Reddit: Handy script to confirm commands

Friday 6th of February 2015 05:55:21 PM

Here's a handy little script I wrote and added to /usr/bin for confirming intent to execute a command:

while true; do read -p "$1 " choice case $choice in [Yy] ) exit 0;; [Nn] ) echo 'Aborted'; exit -1;; * ) echo "Y/N?";; esac done

Can be used like this:

confirm 'Are you sure?' && high_stakes_command

Can also be used to reconfirm:

confirm 'Are you sure?' && confirm 'Are you really sure?' && high_stakes_command

Is there a built-in tool that can do this which I'm unaware of?

LXer: Why Evolve OS could win you over to Linux and me away from Ubuntu

Friday 6th of February 2015 04:29:42 PM
There are so many Linux distributions, each one claiming that they are the one flavor best designed for the new user in mind. Ubuntu, Linux Mint, PCLinuxOS -- all outstanding distributions and very much ready for users who want a platform built on the premise that Linux isn't nearly as challenging as many people assume.

Reddit: port permission errors can't bind socket

Friday 6th of February 2015 03:40:31 PM

OK, I gotta be up front. It's a Mac OS X box I'm having problems with. I'm trying to stream/open udp video streams with vlc.

It says it can't bind to socket, permission denied, etc... I'm finding on some places that the ports 1-1024 are restricted on Mac OS x and possibly other linux variants?

No firewall. I've found ONE page that says this is a way to go: ssh blah@localohost -L 5001:localhost:1001 I can't even figure out what that is unless it's an ssh tunnel, which doesn't seem all that useful.

Forgive the "mac" part, but it is a unix-based OS, after all. :)

LXer: Radio Shack’s a Floater, Another RC for Bodhi & Scaling SCALE

Friday 6th of February 2015 03:32:31 PM
This isn’t a FOSS story exactly, but I’m sure there’s hardly a FOSSer of a certain age who didn’t spend too many hours at a Radio Shack, back when the stores were for electronic hobbyists. Indeed, many of us saw our first consumer computers at Radio Shack, with programs loaded and data saved to a manual cassette recorder. Yup, those were the days.
