  • Five Useful Tools For Debian Based Systems

    In this tutorial, we’ll be discussing some random useful tools that can be used by system administrators for maintaining Debian and derivative distributions.

  • tunir 0.7 is out

    Today I have released Tunir 0.7. Tunir is a simple CI which developers can even use in their laptops. There are few major changes in this release. The first one is about no database support. Tunir itself will not save any data anywhere, this also means –stateless command line argument is now unnecessary. Even if you do not pass that option, tunir will print out the output of the tests on STDOUT.

  • Announcing libradosfs

    At CERN the disk storage is managed by a system built in-house called EOS (developed by CERN’s IT Data & Storage Services group). EOS manages data from the LHC experiments and also from “regular” users and power applications such as CERNBox, a file storage/sharing service for CERN users.

  • Terminal Emulator `Terminator` Sees New Release

    Terminator is terminal emulator which includes numerous useful features such as multiple terminals in the same window (split view), notifications, supports saving and restoring custom layouts and much more.

  • Non-Linux FOSS: PlexConnect

    The open-source PlexConnect is really just a brilliant translation layer that hijacks DNS (pointing http://trailers.apple.com to the PlexConnect server IP) and feeds the Apple TV data formatted like it expects. Rather than showing a listing of recent movie trailers, however, PlexConnect shows a direct interface with your Plex media server. And to be honest, the interface is actually surprisingly pleasant to use.

  • Samba 4.3.0 Arrives with Support for Apple's Spotlight, Logging Improvements

    Samba, the world’s most used open-source software solution for accessing shared Windows folders over a network from GNU/Linux and Mac OS X operating systems, has reached version 4.3.

  • Dead Rising 1 and 2 Make it as Steam Deck Verified Titles

    But not just Dead Rising! Valve has progressed in testing more games and we are at more than 3700 games validated (3719 games to be precise at the time of publication) on the Steam Deck – in two categories...

  • Linux is more popular than ever, thanks to Valve’s Steam Deck | PCGamesN

    The Steam Deck is undeniably a popular handheld gaming PC, and its street cred is helping Linux grab a larger slice of the market pie. While Windows 10 still reigns supreme within the operating system scene, more Steam users than ever are playing games on versions of the Unix-like OS.

  • Behind open DORS – Conference organizers share their thoughts on Canonical, Ubuntu, snaps, and open-source | Ubuntu

    A Linux conference almost as old as Linux itself. In mid-May, DORS/CLUC hosted its 29th event at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing in Zagreb, Croatia. With a long history of participation and contribution to open source communities, Canonical was one of the sponsors at the conference, with a busy schedule that included a presentation on snaps, an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session, and several interviews. Typically, at conference events, the conference presenters (and attendees) are the ones who get interviewed. This time, we decided to add a spin. I interviewed the event’s organizers. For a good hour and half, I spoke to Svebor Prstacic, the president of HrOpen and Vedran Lebo, the co-chair of the conference and president of HULK (an aptly acronymized organization that translates to The Croatian Linux Users Association). We discussed the origins of DORS, the value and importance of Linux and open source, the relation with Canonical, and the future.

  • KDE Dev-Vlog 4: Too Much Spectacle! – Felix Ernst

    Sometimes it is the smallest thing that makes the biggest difference for our users. This video shows the cause and the thoughts behind such a small change on a small application.

  • Brenda is classic automata nightmare fuel | Arduino Blog

    Art is a strange thing. Sometimes its purpose is purely aesthetic. Sometimes it makes a statement. And sometimes it exists to disturb. Kinetic art is no different and some robots fall into this category. Graham Asker’s art elicits pondering on the relationship between humans and robots, as well as the relationships between different robots. But as Brenda, a classical-style automaton, demonstrates, Asker’s art can also induce nightmares. Brenda and her companion Brian are strange, bodiless robots designed to mimic the aesthetics of automatons from myth and history. Each robot is a construction of beautiful brass, mechanical joints, linkages, and cables. Servos hidden inside the bases of the robots actuate the various joints, giving Brenda and Brian the ability to emote. Most of their “facial” movement is in their eyes. Lifelike eyeballs look around from within heavy eyelids, while pivoting eyebrows help to convey expressions.
