TuxMachines: Closer look at the Alcatel Xess 17 inch Android… thing

Saturday 9th of April 2016 04:01:46 PM

The Alcatel Xess is an Android tablet with a big screen. Or maybe it’s an all-in-one computer with a reasonably small screen and Android software.

Any way you look at it, the Xess is a device with a 17.3 inch full HD display, a 9,600 mAh battery, and a built-in kickstand and handle. It weighs more than 5 pounds, so you probably aren’t going to want to hold it on your lap the way you would a smaller tablet. But you can easily move it from room to room and use it to watch videos, play games, update your calendar or shopping list and more.

Reddit: Vanilla Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Mouse is obtuse: The internet is not helpful.

Saturday 9th of April 2016 03:08:31 PM

My computer is old, not ancient, but old, and sentient. I've been upgrading it for over a decade, and it has decided that it will not run windows. Every time I try to install it since I installed a SDD, it has some strange boot loop error, and trust me on this, will not run windows.

Not a big deal. This old computer is like the roommate that you never wish would move away. It's been with me through the best and worst, and reminds me of a better time, always. So, this quirk is acceptable. Linux it is, should be more productive anyway.

That being said, I installed Linux, and have worked with it in the past. This works well enough, it's not totally foreign. However, the mouse is not functioning. It is functioning as a 2 button mouse. Only the scroll wheel wants to control the volume, and the thumb buttons don't work at all, also the double click button works as a home button for my browser.

I went to system settings, and the mouse utility is not helpful... at all. It just opens a picture with a circle in it that says "click me". There's nothing in the software center, or synaptic package manager for mapping keys. So I went searching.

The internet tells me that I have to inject code directly into the driver, and... really, I don't want to. There must be some way to do this so I'm not making copies of config files, and pasting code. I kept looking for something, and finally just submitted a bug report using my ubuntu one account.

When I run the xev command. The buttons respond, all of them. Any suggestions for overcoming this problem? Thank you for your time reading this request.

Reddit: CLI tool to get a list of all pages on a website?

Saturday 9th of April 2016 02:05:01 PM

Is there a way to list all pages on a website? A project page that I frequent often posts links to pages on the website that aren't included in the main index. It would be nice to know what other useful pages are available.

Is there any way I can get a list of all available pages? It would be nice if there was something available like tree to list all pages and their hierarchy.

Reddit: What did Microsoft achieve by buying Nokia?

Saturday 9th of April 2016 03:42:59 AM

I'm curious about this question since a long time. Nokia was already a dying company with a meager market share. Even now, the Lumia market share pales in front of Android and iOS. So, what good did Microsoft achieve by buying the Nokia company?

Open source near ubiquitous in IoT, report finds

Open source is increasingly standard operating procedure in software, but nowhere is this more true than Internet of Things development. According to a new VisionMobile survey of 3,700 IoT developers, 91% of respondents use open source software in at least one area of their software stack. This is good news for IoT because only open source promises to reduce or eliminate the potential for lock-in imposed by proprietary “standards.” What’s perhaps most interesting in this affection for open source, however, is that even as enterprise developers have eschewed the politics of open source licensing, IoT developers seem to favor open source because “it’s free as in freedom.” Read more

Ubuntu 16.04 – My Experience so Far and Customization

While I earnestly anticipated the release of Unity 8 with Xenial Xerus (after watching a couple of videos that showcased its function), I was utterly disappointed that Canonical was going to further push its release — even though it was originally meant to debut with Ubuntu 14.04. Back to the point at hand, I immediately went ahead and installed Unity Tweak Tool, moved my dash to the bottom (very important) and then proceeded to replace Nautilus with the extensive Nemo file manager which is native to Linux Mint and by far superior to the former (my opinion).
