Filed under
Ubuntu

I've been working with the Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition for a while now. It's a nice piece of technology that finally offers the Ubuntu Touch platform the power necessary to get the job done. During my time with this device, I had to constantly remind myself that, sadly enough, the platform really isn't ready for prime time.

But it's very close.

  • Ubuntu 16.04 will support 'Snaps' alongside Deb packages for improved software installation

    Ubuntu 16.04 will support two different package formats for applications: Snaps and Debs. The underlying Ubuntu system will continue to use Deb packages, but Snap packages can be installed alongside Debs.

  • Budgie Remix 16.04 RC Has Been Released

    As a reminder, Solus OS is a free, open-source Linux system built from scratch by Ikey Doherty. What’s interesting about it is the fact that it uses Budgie, a beautiful, very lightweight desktop environment built in GTK+.

    Recently, David Mohammed decided to take the Budgie desktop and used it by default on Ubuntu, creating his own Ubuntu flavor named Budgie-Remix.

    Right now, Budgie-Remix 16.04 RC has been released, but the developer is working hard to make Ubuntu Budgie an official flavor and release it along with the other systems from the Ubuntu family, starting with Ubuntu 16.10.

  • Ubuntu Custom Kernel

    In this video I show how to install the latest kernel in Ubuntu Linux. I discuss some of the benefits of installing your own kernel, and how you can contribute to the development of the Linux Kernel just by running the latest.

  • Docker 1.10 with Fan Networking in Ubuntu 16.04, for Every Architecture!

    I’m thrilled to introduce Docker 1.10.3, supported on every Ubuntu architecture, for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, and announce the General Availability of Ubuntu Fan Networking!

  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS To Offer Updates Via Snap Packages

    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS will allow installing snap packages along traditional deb packages, announced Olli Ries, SW Engineering Ubuntu Client Director at Canonical.

    The change comes as a way to solve the users and developers frustration in regard to installing newer software without having to worry about the impact on other applications or the system, because a snap package contains all of its dependencies, so it can't interfere with other packages.

fresh breeze for Ubuntu

KDE
Ubuntu

1,5 years ago the VDG start with an icon theme for LibreOffice to guaranty an consistent look and feel for Plasma users. Now this new icon theme Breeze was used by default in the KDE Linux distributions and on Mac OS X.

Breeze is a monochrome icon theme and fits well into modern Desktops like Plasma and OS X but the second reason is that the Breeze icon set is a complete icon set. We can support 100 % (and I mean 100 %) of the needed LibreOffice icons. In addition Breeze supports dark colour themes AND 32 px icon size. This is unique because only the default icon set is that much feature complete.

Review: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus)

When we get to our Conclusion, we always find recent Ubuntu releases a little difficult to summarize. This is probably because each new release does not really bring major changes to the table anymore, rather they all seem to feel like just another update. In truth, that’s all they really are. But when third-party Linux distributions continue to innovate and give their users something fresh each time a new release is delivered, we can’t help but wonder why Ubuntu Developers can not achieve the same. Yet we can not quite put our finger on what Canonical are doing wrong. Essentially, they’re not really doing anything wrong. They are just not really offering anything fresh, new or innovative anymore. Read more
