Desktop Themes

  • Numix White Icons Looks Better On Dark Themes, Install In Ubuntu/Linux Mint Via PPA
  • Make Your Gnome Shell Kind Of Look Like Unity With United Gnome Theme
    Beside theme you can install these extensions to make desktop look more like Unity. Dash to dock: Enable panel mode and position it on the left; Dynamic Panel Transparency: The non-dark variant comes with a semi-transparent panel. Square icons used in the following screenshots.
  • Albatross Theme Forked From Shimmer Project For Ubuntu/Linux Mint
    It is glad to see that theme development is much faster now than past. Albatross theme is forked from Shimmer project team, they stopped the development long ago. If you want to keep your desktop simple, clean and elegant then for sure this theme is for you, it is specially targeting Gnome desktop and may work with Xfce. Currently this theme is compatible with Gtk 3.24+/3.22/3.20. If you intend to use this theme in the Xfce desktop then you must use xfwm4 from "Greybird/Adwaita" since that is not packed with this theme. Since this theme is in active development, if you encounter any bug or problem with this theme then report it to get it fixed. Obsidian-1 icons used in the following screenshot.
  • Pop Theme Suite: Make Your Ubuntu/Linux Look Like System76 Upcoming Desktop
    As I mentioned in my previous posts that lots theme development going on now but Linux community and a company is not even behind called "System76". Well they designed theme and icons for their own computers that run Ubuntu but good news is that it is free and comes under GPL-V2 license that means anyone can copy, share or remake their theme suite.

Hands on with the Pinebook

The Pine A64 was a 64-bit Quad-Core Single Board Computer which was kickstarted at the tail end of 2015 for delivery in the middle of 2016. Costing just $15, and hailed as a “Raspberry Pi killer,” the board raised $1.7 million from 36,000 backers. It shipped to its backers to almost universally poor reviews. Now they’re back, this time with a laptop—a 11.6-inch model for $89, or a 14-inch model for $99. Both are powered by the same 64-bit Quad-Core ARM Cortex A53 as the original Pine A64 board, but at least Pine are doing a much better job this time around of managing user expectations. Read more

Linux, Graphics, and Tonight's Release

  • Linux 4.11 Set To Be Released Today
    After it was postponed last weekend, the Linux 4.11 kernel is set to be officially released in a matter of hours. As of writing, the Linux 4.11 codename remains the "Fearless Coyote", but there is the possibility that Torvalds may rename it when tagging the official 4.11.0 release today.
  • Linux Kernel 3.18.51 Released with MIPS, ARM, and CIFS Changes, Updated Drivers
  • Linux Kernel 4.4.65 LTS Is a Small Patch with Networking and File System Fixes
  • USB Type-C Port Manager Coming To Linux 4.12
    Another feature to look forward to with the Linux 4.12 kernel for those using newer hardware featuring USB Type-C is a port manager. The "TCPM" driver is queued as a new staging driver via usb-next for entering the Linux 4.12 kernel in the next two weeks. This USB Type-C Port Manager driver implements a power delivery state machine for source/sink ports. This driver serves as a state machine while other USB Type-C drivers are responsible for the rest of the functionality.
  • DirectFB Is Back To Being Dormant
    Back in August of 2015, DirectFB disappeared with its project site and code vanishing. Last November DirectFB re-appeared along with a new site and renewed focus on the project. Unfortunately, it's once again gone silent. With all the news this month about Ubuntu dropping Mir / Unity 8 and the continued work by many different desktop/compositor teams on Wayland, I was curious this weekend to check on how DirectFB is doing in 2017... Sadly, DirectFB.net as the new DirectFB site launched last November is now down again. The original DirectFB (dot) org web-site remains squatted. I've been unable to find any other "new" DirectFB website.
