So instead of hurling insults at the confused penguin nestlings, I have decided to help by giving you my own guide on how to make Ubuntu beautiful. Please note there are many ways to do this, this is just my way and because I detest the Dock-style launchers (bottom of the screen) do not ask me about them.If I wanted a Mac I would buy a Mac and use their Docking feature. Who am I kidding here, If I wanted a Mac, I would not be able to afford a Mac.
'Resist gratification', says super-GNU-man freedom fighter
Fedora 22 Workstation was released today and it ships with the latest stable GNOME 3.16, a new default package manager and other interesting changes. Let's take a look at what's new!
Announcements only (not reviews):
The Fedora project has announced that Fedora 22 is finally available for download for all the new flavors, Workstation, Server, and Cloud.
SUSE, the well-known Linux company, may not have the OpenStack cloud reputation of rivals Canonical, Red Hat, and Mirantis, but it offers one thing that no one else does: It's public-cloud agnostic.
An $89, peer-to-peer “Brease” private file server on Kickstarter features four USB 3.0 ports, a GbE port, 256-bit AES, mobile support, and media streaming.
Dutch startup Brease is more than halfway to a $90,000 Kickstarter funding goal for the Brease private file server. Packages are available through June 16, starting at $89, or $119 for the functionally identical Black Thunder Edition, both of which ship in Feb. 2016. An internally identical anodized aluminum Onyx Edition goes for $199, but ships in Dec. 2015.
Here is all that we have to share in terms of background information. The Ubuntu governance goals demand that “Decisions regarding the Ubuntu distribution and community are taken in a fair and transparent fashion”. To that end, here is all the correspondence between the Ubuntu Community Council (UCC) and the Kubuntu Council (KC). In this post, I am, on behalf of the KC, merely trying to provide data.
Why should you be lugging around a bulky PC when you can get a decent computing power in a box no wider than 5 inch or a stick as big (or small) as the Chromecast?
Linux has become a dominant force in the consumer space, thanks to Google's Chrome OS and Android. While both Android and Chrome OS are Linux-based distributions, they can't run a majority of applications written for the traditional Linux-based distributions such openSUSE, Fedora or Ubuntu.
An anonymous reader has pointed out that Mandriva is currently being liquidated (page in French). The company brought in €553,000 in 2013, but that is seemingly not enough to keep it going in 2015. It is a sad end for a company that has been pursuing the desktop Linux dream since 1998.
Today we are releasing a research paper about a malware family that primarily targets Linux-based consumer routers but that can infect other Linux-based embedded systems in its path: Dissecting Linux/Moose. This blog post will summarize a few elements of the full report.
Quite a few people are going to be installing Fedora 22 in the coming days, searching for things in the software center and not finding what they want. This is because some applications still don’t ship AppData files, which have become compulsory for this release. So far, over 53% of applications shipped in Fedora ship the required software center metadata, up from the original 12% in Fedora 21. If you don’t like this, you can either use dnf to install the package on the command line, or set gsettings set org.gnome.software require-appdata false. If you want to see your application in the software center in the future, please file a bug either upstream or downstream (I’ve already filed a lot of upstream bugs) or even better write the metadata and get it installed either upstream tarball or downstream in the Fedora package. Most upstream and downstream maintainers have shipped the extra software center information, but some others might need a little reminder about it from users.
UBUNTU creator Mark Shuttleworth issued a call to arms this month to developers of all Linux desktop environments to work together to bring their applications to a converged platform that will run Ubuntu on phones, tablets and PCs.
In a video address to kickoff the Ubunt Online Summit, Shuttleworth said convergence was rapidly transforming personal computing.
Red Hat is letting another one of their developers focus on improvements to Nouveau, the open-source NVIDIA Linux graphics driver.
After a week cruising around with Android Auto, I’m convinced this is the future of in-dash technology. Taking the software design out of the hands of car makers and putting it in the hands of phone makers should have happened long ago.
Google’s mobile talents—maps, speech recognition, Google Now—are great behind the wheel. I do have some frustrations with the system, but the biggest is that you need the right phone and right car.
I am happy to announce release of Qt 4.8.7 today bringing over 150 improvements and bug fixes. Qt 4.8.7 provides important security updates, better support for Mac OS X 10.10 and many requested error corrections. As a patch release, it does not add new functionality and maintains full compatibility with previous Qt 4.8.x releases.
From the creator of the RemasterOS Linux and K-Mint Linux distributions, we're introducing you today to the Black GNOME Linux distro, based on the latest Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS (Trusty Tahr) operating system.
