  • Howdy, Ubuntu on Windows! An Intro From Canonical's Dustin Kirkland

    Hi there! My name is Dustin Kirkland, a Linux user for nearly 20 years, and an open source developer for almost as long. I worked on Linux at IBM for most of a decade, on site at Red Hat for a bit, and now at Canonical for nearly another decade. I started at Canonical as an engineer on the Ubuntu Server team and eventually evolved into the product manager responsible for Ubuntu as a server and cloud platform. I’ve authored many open source utilities used by millions of Ubuntu users every day. Open source software is my passion, my heart, and my soul.

    I was working in Cape Town, South Africa when I received a strange call from a friend and colleague at Microsoft in January of 2016. The call was decorated with subtlety as he danced around the technology underpinning what you and I today know as “Ubuntu on Windows,” but without any detail. There was plenty of confusion. Confusion around exactly what we were talking about. Confusion about how this could even work. Confusion about how I should feel about this.

  • Linux Mint 18 Sarah Xfce released in Beta

    So after the release of Linux Mint 18 sarah in the flavours of Cinnamon and MATE,now the team is focoused on working over other flavours too.As a result Xfce has been choosen to be the next flavour to be provided officially.

    So,If you were waiting for Linux Mint 18 to be available in Xfce DE(Desktop Environment) then Linux Mint team has started to roll the beta release of Sarah in Xfce DE. Linux Mint team announced the release of Linux Mint 18 Xfce Beta with some already known issues and workarounds too.This xfce edition features Xfce 4.12, MDM 2.0 and it is coming with Linux Kernel 4.4.

  • Linux Mint 18 Xfce beta is out

    While the release comes with the new X-Apps, the Mint-Y theme, new artwork, an Ubuntu 16.04 base, and version 4.4 of the Linux kernel, it still runs Xfce 4.12 and MDM 2.0, both of which were present in Mint 17.3. The reason Xfce and MDM are at the same versions is because they are the latest upstream versions. They'll likely be updated with new point releases in the Mint 18 cycle.

  • MacBuntu 16.04 Transformation Pack for Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus

    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.

Four Alternatives to Raspbian and Ubuntu MATE

Filed under

Ubuntu

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.
