Texstar wrote the other day, "I'm starting an upload of PCLinuxOS 0.92 Test 04 iso in a few minutes and it should be available tomorrow. If there are no big glaring showstoppers then I'm going to simply rename the iso to final over the weekend and add the Nvidia and ATI isos as well.

Thanks to everyone who helped so much getting this release prepared and ready to go."

One tester states, "It is nice to be in a position when the only "bug reports" are cosmetics!"

Another writes, "Tested livecd on both boxes, everything A-OK!

Tested install, first configured my printer and changed a few small configurations. Then added user, changed root password, installed lilo to installs hd, turned on logging. Booted up perfectly with all changes intact, printer working, etc.

Seems like a winner on this end, thanks everyone!"

Although a few little bugs reared up, fixes came fast and furious. According to the following, another upload will probably take place.

Found on the mailing list:

* Fix userdrake to automatically add new user to audio and video group

* Really fix usb sound device from getting first sound device on livecd. Works on hd install without issue.

* Fix redo-lilo script to actually re-write lilo from livecd.

Schedule 0.92 beta release final for Monday Nov 21st.

There's still time to test!

Qt 5.10 Alpha in testing for KDE neon

Qt 5.10 got an alpha release last week and rumours are there’s lots of interesting new stuff for Plasma developers and other parts of KDE. Packages are available in KDE neon but hidden away in the testing repository because there is inevitably some breakage. Random bits of QML such as the clock above and Kirigami seem to be unhappy. Please do test but expect breakage and fixes to be necessary. Read more

5 Great Linux Desktop Environments You Haven’t Heard Of

Although popular, these desktop environments (DE) are just a sample of what’s currently available. Better still, it’s so easy to make the change. Unlike Windows and macOS, you can change the desktop user interface by simply installing a new one. Unhappy with the way your preferred Linux distro looks? You don’t have to switch distros, just switch desktops! The following five desktop environments (and, to be precise, shells) are under the radar, but definitely worth a look. Read more
