Elementary OS 0.3 Freya Has Received A New Option, Permitting The Users To Create Custom Keyboard ShortcutsSubmitted by Roy Schestowitz on Tuesday 26th of May 2015 08:15:17 AM Filed under
Kubuntu Kubuntu is an official Ubuntu community project which releases new versions in step with the rest of the Ubuntu community. Kubuntu ships with KDE's Plasma desktop by default, offering users the latest technology to come out of the KDE project. Kubuntu's most recent release, version 15.04, is the first to ship with Plasma 5 and this is also the first version of the distribution to ship with systemd as the default init technology. The distribution's release announcement states, "Plasma 5, the next generation of KDE's desktop, has been rewritten to make it smoother to use while retaining the familiar setup. The second set of updates to Plasma 5 are now stable enough for everyday use and is the default in this version of Kubuntu."
I’ve known about Krita for a long time, I might have first heard about it around the time I started to complement my GIMP work with MyPaint for painting. Since I exclusively draw in Linux, the open-source painting world is something I try to keep in touch with.
Today is officially the first day of coding for this year's Google Summer of Code. For the next three months I will be working on bringing animation to Krita. There's a lot of work ahead, but I have a solid plan to work with.
The latest Mesa 10.5 point release, Mesa 10.5.6, is now available.
Emil Velikov has announced the immediate availability for download of a new maintenance release of the Mesa 3D graphics library used in numerous distributions of GNU/Linux.
If you present someone to the Linux world as GNU/Linux, you spend the next fifteen minutes trying to explain GNU. It’s difficult to explain in just a few minutes, it’s difficult to pronounce and it confuses the new Linux user. However, I make it a practice to bookmark websites that explain what GNU is and why it’s critical to Linux, and I tell people why it’s important to read about the subject when they have time.
[Android Auto Watch] 2015 Hyundai Sonata Android Auto Upgrade Now Available At Some Dealers, Others SoonSubmitted by Rianne Schestowitz on Monday 25th of May 2015 10:05:21 PM Filed under
According to the fan-owned Hyundai Forums, if you walk into your Hyundai dealership in the next week or so with your 2015 Hyundai Sonata with Tech Package (meaning the large screen navigation system upgrade), an Android Auto upgrade should be there for you. And if it isn't, it probably will be shortly (like, this week).
Newark Element14’s new ValentFX Logi-Pi and Logi-Bone FPGA add-on boards for the Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black feature Arduino and PMOD hooks.
We first covered the Logi-Pi and Logi-Bone Logi-Boards back in Sept. 2013 when ValentFX showed off prototypes at the New York Maker Faire. The Logi-Boards, which integrate Xilinx SPARTAN-6 XC6SLX9 FPGAs, and plug into the Linux-based Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black hacker boards, respectively, have now reached market, thanks to a partnership with Newark Element14. ValentFX and Newark have also launched a $45.48 Logi-Edu educational board add-on that purports to teach everyday hackers the mysteries of FPGA.
After releasing its own branded 8-inch Android tablet a mere two weeks ago, AT&T is giving itself some fresh competition. The mobile carrier has announced that it's bringing the LG G Pad F 8.0 to its customers starting on May 29.
What's Hot on ZDNet
The new model should not be confused with the LG G Pad 8.3, which, while being an older tablet, offers a slightly larger, higher-resolution screen and a faster processor. Rather, it's more of a bigger sibling to the LG G Pad 7.0 that was released late last year, coming with the same 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor (compared to the 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 inside the G Pad 8.3).
This month has been quite busy for me with classes. Now that the semester is finally over, I have a little more time, and that means I have enough time to do a review. It has been a few years since I've reviewed Kubuntu, the officially-supported variant of Ubuntu that uses KDE. Moreover, Kubuntu now features KDE 5 (I know the KDE naming and numbering system has become a lot more complicated, so this is, as a physicist might say, an intentional abuse of notation) as stable for the first time, so I figured I should try this version. I tried it as a live USB made with UnetBootin. Follow the jump to see what it's like. (It should become progressively clearer through this review why there are no pictures.)
Karma is a free, an open source data integration tool that makes it easy to convert data from a variety of formats into linked data.
I recently attended a half-day workshop on Karma with Pedro Szekely, our instructor. He started by warning us that he knows very little about libraries, but a ton about data. The files we needed for the workshop were on GitHub, if you’re interested in checking it out. You can follow the tutorial steps on the Wiki, and, of course, you can find Karma itself on GitHub.
The history i want to share with you is how that “marble Tux” happens. Yes, it was a production machine that you see in the picture and was running in every place in Brazil for at least 10 years.
So, a 25 years old boy, in this case me, the guy typing now, who was working in a ILOG graphical toolkit partner suddenly decide to look for Linux jobs, it was out of university for 1 year, but was already infected for the open source and Linux for more than 3 years, and thought it can be done.
The open source platform for Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), OPNFV Project, has received major backing from EMC and VMware. EMC joins as a Platinum member, along with others such as AT&T, Brocade, China Mobile, Cisco, Dell, Ericsson, HP, Huawei, IBM, Intel, Juniper Networks, NEC, Nokia Networks, DOCOMO, Red Hat, Telecom Italia, Vodafone and ZTE. VMware joins as a Silver member.
After that Cesar Fabian started the code contribution part, because all of them were interested in GNOME developer technologies. We started with glib, based on the GLIB Website. He explained us that Glib is a GNOME library written in C. We did a couple of examples: Hello Word and Lists of Fruits, using glist. Glists are linked lists that use the type void *. It was also explained values and basic types like gboleean where ONE represents TRUE and the rest of values are FALSE .
Debarshi Ray, a renown GNOME developer, announced the immediate availability for download and testing of a new development release of the GNOME Online Accounts component of the upcoming GNOME 3.18 desktop environment.
The GNOME Project is hard at work these days preparing for the release of the second milestone of the upcoming GNOME 3.18 desktop environment, due for release later this year on September 23.
"Your secure software is open source; doesn't that make it less secure?"
This is a recurring question that we get at Benetech about Martus, our free, strongly encrypted tool for secure collection and management of sensitive information built and provided by the Benetech Human Rights Program. It's an important question for us and for all of our peers developing secure software in today's post-Snowden environment of fear and worry about surveillance. We strongly believe not only that open source is compatible with digital security, but that it's also essential for it.
