Reddit: Is there a way I can do the one handed pinch feature to zoom in and out with my trackpad on any linux distros?

3 hours 12 min ago

I'm coming from Windows 10 and am trying out different Linux distros to see what I like. So far have tried Mint Cinnamon and Kubuntu. I notice with both I can only zoom in and out by doing a two finger scroll while holding the ctrl button. Is there a way I can do a one handed pinch zoom in/out on linux?

Reddit: Centos7 and RHEL7 admins read!!!

6 hours 54 min ago


Today we had a problem with one of our centos7 servers. It was weird because /run partition went full. We found the cause to be systemd and in this particular scenario systemd was updated on october, but the server was not rebooted. After the update every cron job, login etc. writes a small file to /run/systemd/sessions/ but those files never get cleaned up. In our case this accumulated to millions of small files in that directory which hogged the whole temp filesystem.

Go check that folder from your servers and reboot if necessary. Because it is just a matter of time when the /run tempfs runs out of space.

Was a nice friday to see that this affects every single of our servers, including database.

Problem also confirmed by a fellow sysadmin whose organization runs RHEL7

An introduction to Joplin, an open source Evernote alternative

Joplin is an open source cross-platform note-taking and to-do application. It can handle a large number of notes, organized into notebooks, and can synchronize them across multiple devices. The notes can be edited in Markdown, either from within the app or with your own text editor, and each application has an option to render Markdown with formatting, images, URLs, and more. Any number of files, such as images and PDFs, can be attached to a note, and notes can also be tagged. I started developing Joplin when Evernote changed its pricing model and because I wanted my 4,000+ notes to be stored in a more open format, free of any proprietary solution. To that end, I have developed three Joplin applications, all under the MIT License: for desktop (Windows, MacOS, and Linux), for mobile (Android and iOS), and for the terminal (Windows, MacOS, and Linux). All the applications have similar user interfaces and can synchronize with each other. They are based on open standards and technologies including SQLite and JavaScript for the backend, and Terminal Kit (Node.js), Electron, and React Native for the three front ends. Read more
