  • If Addicted to NVIDIA Drivers don’t install Fedora 23 yet…

    Okay here is a useful tip to all Fedora lovers like me, there are addict to NVIDIA binary drivers, for there GNOME-Shell to run in a way that they can work with it. Don’t install Fedora 23 yet. When it was released on the 3th of November 2015 it was released with a release candidate of xserver 1.18. The Official announcement of a stable xserver first came Mon Nov 9 13:17:40 PST 2015. This is resulting in NO drivers yet from nVidia I just used an entire day to hack around to understand what was wrong, just to realize, there is no way to make it work with Fedora 23 without downgrading to Fedora 22 there is running xserver 1.17.99.902 . I do have to point out that today is the 13th of November and there is still no driver from nVidia.

  • Grub Boot Loader Full Tutorial – Linux Hint

    A boot loader is, by default, the first program that starts as soon as you turn on your computer system, i.e., it starts even before the operating system. In fact, the boot loader is responsible for loading your operating system. In the absence of a boot loader, it is technically impossible to load your operating system, hence, you will not be able to access your computer system. This program is presented to us by GNU. Initially, this program was developed only for Linux-based systems, however, today it supports multiple operating systems including, macOS, Windows, BSD, and Solaris. Most of the users get familiar with the Grub Boot Loader only once they install more than one operating system on their machine. By doing this, they essentially cause the Grub Boot Loader to present a menu at the boot-up time through which they can explicitly choose which operating system they want to load. In this article, we would like to share with you a complete tutorial on Grub Boot Loader, which will be based on customizing this program according to your choice. After going through this tutorial, you will be in a very good position to customize the Grub Boot Loader just the way you want, and hence you can make the experience of seeing the boot-up process all the more interesting.

  • Blender Bevel Tool – Linux Hint

    In real life, no surface is perfectly sharp. Bevel helps in bringing out the detail. With bevel applied, objects look much more appealing than without bevel. This effect can be exaggerated or subtle one, it depends on the shape of the mesh and your preference. The bevel allows you to chamfer the corners and edges of a mesh. The beveled edges catch light and change shading around corners, which gives realism to the mesh.

  • An Introduction to Linux’s dmesg Command – Linux Hint

    Every operating system, including Linux, performs some activities silently without notifying the user. Although the user is unaware of these activities, it may be necessary to check these activities to identify operating system issues and the devices attached to the computer system. Luckily, for the Linux operating system, all these activities are logged in the ring buffer, which can be accessed by using the diagnostic messages (or dmesg) command. The dmesg command in Linux can be used to display all the messages related to the events taking place within your operating system. This article will teach you how to use this helpful command in Linux.

  • Killing frozen applications in Ubuntu – Linux Hint

    Sometimes, the applications running on your system freeze and stop responding. A frozen application cannot be closed by simply using the x button in the upper-right corner of the interface, but rebooting the system is not always a good solution—especially if the system is running critical services. In Ubuntu, there are several methods that can be used to kill frozen applications safely and quickly without rebooting your system: xkill, system monitor utilities, and the commands kill, pkill, and killall. In this article, we will discuss these methods on a machine running Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa).
