Subject: Book Review: The Linux Command Line

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

One of the most difficult tasks in writing for the new Linux user is trying to figure out how much to place on their plate. Linux from the command-line offers so much it is often presented in a way that overwhelms the user and they choke. This book does an excellent job at presenting the right amount of content without drowning the reader.

Subject: How to customize Linux Mint 12 KDE

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

This article provides simple suggestions that you can employ to customize an installation of Linux Mint 12 KDE that would make it a little bit more user-friendly and fun to use.Step 1. Apply updates – By default, the first time you log into any installation of Linux Mint 12 KDE, new or old, the system will check for updates 30 seconds after you log in and every 15 minutes afterwards. To ensure that you are running the latest software versions, it is best to apply or install any available updates pronto. But do you want the system to be checking for updates every 15 minutes?

Subject: Will the Spark Tablet Ignite a FOSS Fire?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

"it is good to see Linux entering the tablet space ... [but] the Spark is the wrong device to start with," said Roberto Lim, a lawyer and blogger on Mobile Raptor. "My first issue is the price: The $138 Android tablet is transformed into a $260 Linux tablet. By the time this hits the market, Android equivalents will be selling for $99 or less." The Spark's hardware, meanwhile, "is lackluster."

I heard some rumors at the FOSDEM that Canonical was pulling plugs on KDE, which also creates the Kubuntu spin of Ubuntu. What it meant, if the rumors were to be believed, that KDE won't have a great integration with Ubuntu.

Subject: Ubuntu command line basics for beginners: Part 1

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

You may consider this article as somewhat of a "part two" of the article I wrote a few days ago. It's all about going step-by-step to get you, the user, proficient at the command-line and become envy material for your friends. The distribution chosen for this is Ubuntu, but these commands that are about to be exposed will work on any other Linux system you might encounter, and you will be warned when there are exceptions. What you will get is a how-to about how to accomplish various tasks using the command-line. And one of the advantages is that you can use these commands regardless of desktop environment or lack thereof. You are only required to have a minimal Linux knowledge base for this article, so get to your terminals and let's start.

Subject: This Week at LWN: Jared Smith steps down as Fedora project leader

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

One of the things I like most about the Fedora Project is the opportunity for people to move and grow in (and out) of different roles and responsibilities. The position of Fedora Project Leader, in particular, has never been a long-term leadership position, but one that regularly invites new people to assume the role and bring new ideas and new energy to the project.

Subject: Xonotic 1.0 Is On The Linux Gaming Horizon

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Xonotic, the open-source multi-platform game that succeeded Nexuiz, is finally moving closer to its 1.0 release. Xonotic 1.0 was talked about at FOSDEM 2012 this weekend in Belgium within the open-source game developers' meeting room. Nexuiz was forked as Xonotic by the community in early 2010 following and their first development preview came more than two years ago. Xonotic did a new release a few months ago, but now this DarkPlaces-based game is working towards the stable 1.0 release.
