Earlier this week we saw Canonical demo wireless display on the Bq M10 tablet — but it’s not the only device capable of cable-free convergence.
MacBuntu (Macbuntu Yosemite/El Capitan) transformation pack is ready for Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial. This pack contains themes for GTK (which supports: Unity, Gnome, Cinnamon, Mate and Xfce two themes dark & light for Gnome Shell, two themes for Cinnamon, two icon packs, cursors. There are some issues with 16.04 where it make some parts of the pack useless: 1) boot/splash we do not recommend you to install boot screen because there is a known bug for plymouth but we are still sharing, if you want to give it a shot; 2) Login screen, it is only offered for Ubuntu Unity and Ubuntu Gnome users but if you have multiple desktops then you can't choose and another known problem, if you remove lightdm-webkit then you will have blank screen, to solve this issue you have to install other display manager, so better to not install it. 3) Slingscold which is known as launchpad, it does work on some desktops but it may don't work for some users and you may see blank launcher.

After months of leaks the Meizu MX6 smartphone was unwrapped at a press conference in China earlier today. But the also-rumoured MX6 Ubuntu Edition was (alas) nowhere to be seen. Interestingly the specs of the device differ slightly from those that previous leaks, and benchmark charts claime
Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) is helping government agencies pave the way for open source software use, opening doors for software developers keen to shape new innovative software, says Land Information Minister Louise Upston.
The NZGOAL Software Extension guidelines were themselves developed using open source tools and facilitated through Loomio, an online group decision-making platform. The final drafts were crafted through GitHub, an open source repository.
The Gateworks Ventana GW5530 SBC runs Linux on an i.MX6, and has mini-PCIe and SIM expansion, a 9-axis IMU, three video inputs, and -40 to 85°C support.
The Ventana GW5530 is the latest in the 5th generation of the Gateworks Ventana family of NXP i.MX6-based SBCs, following last year’s similarly 800MHz, dual-core GW5520. The board is designed for wirelessly connected Man Portable Units (MPUs), Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), digital signage, and robotics.

I would like to thank the community and the seeders for their dedication to this project.
To complement yesterday's launch-day GeForce GTX 1060 Linux review, here are some more benchmark results with the various NVIDIA x60 graphics cards I have available for testing going back to the GeForce GTX 460 Fermi. If you are curious about the raw OpenGL/OpenCL/CUDA performance and performance-per-Watt for these mid-range x60 graphics cards from Fermi, Kepler, Maxwell, and Pascal, here are these benchmarks from Ubuntu 16.04 Linux.
The British government’s Digital Service is looking for a chief penguin to head up open source.
GDS has created a brand-new position for an individual to conduct open source technology projects, adoption and working practices for the government's IT arm.
Moreover, the chosen candidate will be charged with forging relationships with individuals and projects outside government in the open-source community.
Until now, GDS had a number of people working in different roles taking the lead on open source. The new individual will be nestled in GDS’s technical architecture team.
The European Commission is preparing a software source code security audit on two software solutions, Apache HTTP server and Keepass, a password manager.

In life, you get what you pay for.*
*Exceptions: Costco wine, $1 New York City pizza and the Blu R1 HD smartphone, now sold by Amazon for $50. In those cases, the quality of the product far exceeds your low expectations.
Yes, you read that right, there’s an Android GOOGL, +0.56% 6.0 smartphone that costs less than family dinner at the Olive Garden. It’s cheap, but it’s not, you know, cheap.
I have been waiting and attempting to be patient on this, Stardew Valley has now popped up on SteamDB with a Linux/Mac testing branch.
We already knew it was coming to Linux, but I hadn't seen anything to indicate a release. It is now showing up on SteamDB. It still doesn't mean it's soon, even with the developer claiming back in June it would be "very soon" it's over a month later and it's only just popping up in a test branch on SteamDB.
Blossom Tales is a rather good looking Zelda-like action RPG that has been Greenlit to be on Steam and it's heading to Linux.

SUSE helps resellers extend software benefits to the cloud, giving customers more flexibility with SUSE solutions
SUSE today introduced a new program that allows resellers of SUSE subscriptions to host SUSE software products on behalf of their end-user customers, providing more flexibility to both resellers and end customers as they extend the benefits of SUSE products beyond customers’ on-site data centers.
“Many of our customers are finding value in partnering with a managed cloud provider so they can stay fast and lean and focus their limited resources on their core business and on driving innovation,” said Ronald de Jong, president of sales at SUSE. “SUSE Reseller Hosting enables our reseller partners to easily create new offerings to serve these customers within their existing SUSE partnership framework, while growing the important relationships our SUSE end-user customers rely on.”
In this years edition of Google Summer of Code, an international annual program in which stipends are awarded to students to hack on Free Software during the summer, openSUSE members are mentoring seven students who all passed their mid-term evaluation last week. Go on to read what they have to say about their first 10 weeks in the program.
Among the more plunderous cybercrime gangs is a group known as “Carbanak,” Eastern European hackers blamed for stealing more than a billion dollars from banks. Today we’ll examine some compelling clues that point to a connection between the Carbanak gang’s staging grounds and a Russian security firm that claims to work with some of the world’s largest brands in cybersecurity.
The Carbanak gang derives its name from the banking malware used in countless high-dollar cyberheists. The gang is perhaps best known for hacking directly into bank networks using poisoned Microsoft Office files, and then using that access to force bank ATMs into dispensing cash. Russian security firm Kaspersky Lab estimates that the Carbanak Gang has likely stolen upwards of USD $1 billion — but mostly from Russian banks.
Do you have an army of imposters online pretending to be you? Probably not, but now you can still request for a verified Twitter account.
On Tuesday, Twitter launched an official application process so that any account can be verified and receive a blue checkmark badge next to its username. Twitter users interested in applying should have a verified phone number and email address, as well as a profile photo that reflects the person or company branding.
Verified accounts get to filter their mentions to only see those from other verified accounts. But that seems to be the only real feature or perk that comes from having a blue badge–aside from bragging rights, of course. Additionally, verified accounts can’t be private, and the username must remain the same or you will have to seek verification all over again. If you are rejected, you can reapply after 30 days. Previously, the verification process was never clear-cut, and it seemed to require a direct connection to a Twitter rep.
Software flaw puts mobile phones and networks at risk of complete takeover [Ed: proprietary software]
A newly disclosed vulnerability could allow attackers to seize control of mobile phones and key parts of the world's telecommunications infrastructure and make it possible to eavesdrop or disrupt entire networks, security experts warned Tuesday.
The bug resides in a code library used in a wide range of telecommunication products, including radios in cell towers, routers, and switches, as well as the baseband chips in individual phones. Although exploiting the heap overflow vulnerability would require great skill and resources, attackers who managed to succeed would have the ability to execute malicious code on virtually all of those devices. The code library was developed by Pennsylvania-based Objective Systems and is used to implement a telephony standard known as ASN.1, short for Abstract Syntax Notation One.
Don't panic. Of course it isn't. Stop typing that angry letter to the editor and read on. I just picked that title because it's clickbait and these days that's all that matters, right?
With the release of libinput 1.4 and the newest feature to add tablet pad mode switching, we've now finished the TODO list we had when libinput was first conceived. Let's see what we have in libinput right now.
Onion launched an “Omega2” module on Kickstarter, featuring a faster CPU, options for double the RAM and flash, and lower pricing than last year’s Omega.
Last year, Onion launched an extremely successful Kickstarter campaign for the original Omega module, with packages starting at $25. That campaign won $267,851 from 4,459 backers. Today, the company returned to the Kickstarter well seeking support for a version 2 follow-on to the Omega, appropriately dubbed Omega2. The new project has already reached more than 90 percent of its $15,000 funding goal — a modest feat, in light of the quarter of a million dollars last year’s project earned.
The universal package is the future of Linux and both Canonical and Red Hat have their own take. Which is the better solution? Or should there be a third?
The Korora Project has released version 24 (codename "Sheldon") which is now available for download.

It seems like every article one reads about the Raspberry Pi always makes a reference to Raspbian. If not, then the writer will probably write about how wonderful Ubuntu MATE is on the Raspberry Pi. Which begs the question: Are there any other OS options for the Raspberry Pi? While there’s nothing wrong with either distro, we should remember that the main appeal of using Linux is the freedom and amount of choice that is offered to the user. With that being said, here are four other distros that offer a great user experience on the Raspberry Pi.
Jim Dean today announced the release of Fedora-based Korora 24, following just one day after their EOL announcement for version 22.
