  • Coffee – A News and Weather App for Linux

    There’s a new weather app in town and it does more than just tell the weather. Apart from being beautiful, it tells the news too and so far there are 8 different sources to choose from!

    Coffee is a recent open source project with which you can keep yourself up to date with both news feeds from around the world and the weather.

    It features a minimalist User Interface with a well-thought-out icon set and color scheme. The weather section is neatly separated from the news feed section and the settings panel is simple and intuitive enough to require no formal training.

  • Here's a way to fix the broken water in ARK: Survival Evolved on Linux

    Also, it turns out there is a temporary workaround to get water looking nice again. Since it's not actually an issue on all maps. With thanks to this post on the ARK forum, here's what to do.

    First, you need to have "The Center - ARK Expansion Map" (free) installed. Annoyingly, all the normal methods of trying to install it failed, they just loaded ARK or showed me the Steam page for the free DLC inside the in-game overlay and nothing happened. I tried many other ways, but the only thing that worked was opting into the Steam Beta Client which somehow suddenly made it work.

Bluetooth Linux Stack Gets Improvements for Bluetooth LE Joypads, Other Devices

First off, for the ShanWan PS3 joypad (a PlayStation 3 controller clone), they managed to disable the rumble motor that currently starts immediately after you plug the controller into the USB port of your Linux computer, as well as to hard-code the HID service that the joypad was supposed to offer but it didn't because it's not Bluetooth compliant. "The SHANWAN PS3 clone joypad will start its rumble motors as soon as it is plugged in via USB. As the additional USB interrupt does nothing on the original PS3 Sixaxis joypads, and makes a number of other clone joypads actually start sending data, disable that call for the SHANWAN so the rumble motors aren't started on plug," reads the kernel patch.
