  • Top 15 things to do after installing Ubuntu GNOME 15.10

    You just did a fresh install of Ubuntu Gnome 15.10 and now you are confused why the movies aren’t playing? Don’t you want to install Skype, VLC or Spotify? and don’t you want to play games in Steam? Don’t worry. I will explain what to do post installation to make the distribution even more convenient and user-friendly. Just take a bucket of popcorn, tune in some Beatles songs and enjoy the ride.

We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)

  • Snappy Packaging Happenings In The Fedora, Arch Space
    This week Canonical hosted a Snappy Sprint in Heidelberg, Germany where they worked to further their new package management solution originally spearheaded for Ubuntu Touch. This wasn't an Ubuntu-only event, but Canonical did invite other distribution stakeholders. Coming out of this week's event were at least positive moments to share for both Arch and Fedora developers. The Arch snaps package guy made progress on snap confinement on Arch. Currently when using Snaps on Arch, there isn't any confinement support, which defeats some of the purpose. There isn't any confinement support since it relies upon some functionality in the Ubuntu-patched AppArmor with that code not yet being mainlined. Arch's Timothy Redaelli has got those AppArmor patches now running via some AUR packages. Thus it's possible to get snap confinement working on Arch, but it's not yet too pleasant of an experience.
