CONKY MANAGER GETS REVAMPED UI, NEW OPTIONS (CONKY GUI)

Filed under
Software

Conky Manager makes using/managing Conky a lot easier and while I like it for the most part, I've encountered two annoyances (nothing major though). One is that the application creates a "conky-manager" folder in the home directory - this will be fixed in a future release though.

And the second issue is related to widgets that display the weather: Conky Manager itself doesn't include an option to set your weather location so to get the weather for your location, you must edit the Conky configuration file (select the weather widget that's currently in use, then in Conky Manager click the Edit file manually... button, then modify it so it uses your weather location).

Canonical Outs New Ubuntu Kernel Update with Compiler-Based Retpoline Mitigation

New Linux kernel security updates have been released for Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark), Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus), Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr), and Ubuntu 12.04 ESM (Extended Security Maintenance), adding the compiler-based retpoline kernel mitigation for the Spectre Variant 2 vulnerability on amd64 and i386 architectures. Canonical fixed the Spectre Variant 2 security vulnerability last month on January 22, but only for 64-bit Ubuntu installations. This update apparently mitigates the issue for 32-bit installations too. Spectre is a nasty hardware bug in microprocessors that use branch prediction and speculative execution and it could allow unauthorized memory reads via side-channel attacks. Read more
