Reddit: Do you prefer DuckDuckGo over Google search?

2 hours 53 min ago

I've observed that most of the advance user prefer DuckDuckGo as it doesn't apply any machine learning to learn from your search history and that mean it's great for doing research and general use.

Reddit: LibreOffice Alternatives? [with specific features]

Sunday 21st of January 2018 01:34:17 AM


So I found this incredible software called "Master PDF Editor" that has the ability to open a PDF or create an new PDF and mark the chapters as bookmarks that you can click at your convenience.

It is hard to describe, but let me give you an example with an image:

*If the image doesn't convey the feature properly, the software has a free version where you can mess around in it if it'll help.

Clicking anyone of those will instantly jump you to that page and if you want to change, you can easily just open the content tab again and click away.

It got me wondering...are there any writing softwares where this is a feature? I'm currently using LibreOffice and I LOVE it, but I write a lot and it would be a huge help to have a feature like this so I can jump about chapters/bookmarks whenever I need to (which is all of the time).

Unfortunately my searching came up pretty empty, but I was hoping someone here knew if such a thing existed.

Anyways, thanks for reading!

And I'm sorry if this is not allowed here. I figured linuxquestions was more about actual hardware or software *issues**, rather than software existence inquiries.

TuxMachines: openSUSE Tumbleweed Users Receive Important Mesa Linux Graphics Stack Update

Sunday 21st of January 2018 01:02:30 AM

Four snapshots were released this week for OpenSuSE Tumbleweed, which is a rolling release GNU/Linux distribution where users install once and receive updates forever. Probably the most important change added in these snapshots was related to the graphics stack, which was updated to Mesa 17.3.2, a release that neede to be split into two parts to improve the build performance of the distribution.

"In order to improve the distro build performance, Mesa was split into two parts to be built. Users that updated their system using “–no-recommends” did not get Mesa-dri auto-installed, resulting in the graphical system possibly not starting up. Simply install Mesa-dri for now manually (dependency chain fixes are underway)," said Dominique Leuenberger in the mailing list announcement.

My technical level is modest at best. I'm familiar with command lines and directory structures and I'm a beginner with Python.
