Gaming

Aside from demonstrating that Linux CAN be used for gaming, SteamOS will have another great advantage for the Linux gaming community: it will bring a lot of casual gamers that will be looking for a different experience into the world of Linux. This move should increase the percentage of Linux gamers enough to make PC gamers curious, and game developers willing to take a leap of faith and create games for Linux as well.

Overall, the future of Linux gaming is looking bright.

  • How To Use A Nyko Playpad Bluetooth Controller On Linux Using Xboxdrv

    I've spent more hours than I care to admit in search of the perfect portable game controller to use with my laptop. I wanted something compact and Bluetooth enabled, so the Nyko Playpad seemed to fit the bill quite nicely. Unfortunately this little device is intended for the Android and iOS platforms. PC gaming was clearly an after thought for this thing, as is evidenced by the Android firmware updater that will prompt you to flash a PC-friendly version of the firmware, only to deny the request with promises that said feature is in the works. Highly doubtful. The Android software hasn't been updated in years, and is absolute rubbish. I finally had to use their Windows updater to flash the latest firmware.

AT&T to begin selling LG G Pad F 8.0 Android tablet on May 29

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).

Review: Kubuntu 15.04 "Vivid Vervet"

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.) Read more

Open source data integration with Karma

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.
