Reddit: Gnome 3 Settings for Guake

Friday 1st of September 2017 03:59:00 AM

Hi all.

Running Gnome3 on Antergos Linux (Arch-based) and I installed Guake + zsh + oh-my-zsh. The issue I am having is that Guake (a drop-down terminal) isn't actually dropping down as it is fading in/out. I contacted the Guake devs and they said Guake has not settings for this as it is controlled by the window manager.

How do modify Gnome3 so that the window drops down instead of fading in/out?

LXer: Hardening Docker Hosts with User Namespaces

Friday 1st of September 2017 03:50:58 AM

From my professional DevSecOps perspective, securing the containers and the orchestrators (e.g., OpenShift, Docker Swarm, and Kubernetes) is usually far from easy. This is primarily because the goal posts change frequently thanks to the technology evolving at such a rapid pace.

TuxMachines: Must Have Linux Mint Software

Friday 1st of September 2017 12:13:40 AM

I must admit that I'm still shocked at how popular Linux Mint has become. The reasons why are covered in my "Why Linux Mint won" article. But there's more to Linux Mint than the distro itself. There are also what I'd call "must have" applications. This article will share my own must have applications that I think every Linux Mint user should check out.

LXer: OpenStack 'Pike' Focuses on Basics Instead of Gee-Whiz New Features

Thursday 31st of August 2017 10:30:44 PM
Actually, this is a good time for the platform's developers to step away from any mad rush to add new features and concentrate on improving the basics. Back in April, when we reported on Open Stack's ninth User Survey, we noted that although use of the platform was on the rise, in some cases user satisfaction was declining, most likely over usability issues.
