Ubuntu Tute Part 3 - Nice Package!

Filed under
HowTos

For those who have been following our series thus far, you know that I am on a mission from the Penguin himself to take away as much grief as possible with as little headache as possible. Granted, the command line/shell may need to be bopped open once in a while, but for the most part it’s been easy going. One thing I will not do, is send you off screaming with compiling software - that’s for sure. Nothing says “I’m going back to Windows” like a day of chasing down dependencies brought on by compiling software yourself. Moving on!
First up, are you sure that you have enabled all of the non-free repositories for your Ubuntu install? Here ’s a simple way to get the most out of what is available already. If you prefer, you can do the same with gedit, but for most people this is going to prove a little more user friendly. After all, there are screen shots!

Alrighty, so you have looked and looked. But darn it, where is that Yahoo! clone that I was talking about and even more importantly, you are really feeling the need for Filezilla, right?

Full Story.

Hey!

Ubuntu users aren't allowed to invoke the Penguin!

Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS Delayed Until February 2, Will Bring Linux 4.8, Newer Mesa

If you've been waiting to upgrade your Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system to the 16.04.2 point release, which should have hit the streets a couple of days ago, you'll have to wait until February 2. We hate to give you guys bad news, but Canonical's engineers are still working hard these days to port all the goodies from the Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) repositories to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, which is a long-term supported version, until 2019. These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more
