Subject: How to install applications on and update Linpus Lite Desktop 1.7

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

It has a graphical installation program, but it is of no use when it comes to installing applications or updating the few that are installed. The main interface of Online Updates, as it is called, is shown below. Even though it says there are patches (updates) available, none is listed. So, how do you install or update applications on this distribution?

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

Linux kernel maintainer and Linux Foundation Fellow Greg Kroah-Hartman will be moderating the highly-anticipated Linux kernel panel at the Collaboration Summit in a couple short weeks. He was generous enough to take a few moments recently to answer some questions about what we might hear from the Linux kernel panel, as well as some details on his recent work and projects. Oh, and we couldn't resist asking him about the new Raspberry Pi.

Subject: CraftStudio, New Real Time Collaborative Game Making Tool For Linux

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

CraftStudio is an upcoming collaborative gaming making tool for Linux, featuring Minecraft style blocky graphics. The tool aims to bridge gap between developers and gamers by simplifying content creation. Gamers with no particular experience on game development will be able to easily create, paint and animate 3D models (characters, objects) out of blocks, craft infinite maps, paint own blocks and give life to their worlds using a visual scripting system. Everything is done in real-time, you can collaborate with friends or strangers over the Internet. You can also set up your own server or join an existing project.

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

"In judo, the goal is to use the momentum of the person attacking you to defend yourself, and that is exactly what copyleft does" The intent of free software is to render the code that runs the machines that run our lives transparent. In the words of Lawrence Lessig, free software is "free in the sense that the control coders build be transparent to all, and that anyone have the right to take that control, and modify it as he or she sees fit."

Subject: Is the radioactive H.264 going to poisoning us, and the web, until 2028?

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

Whether we like it or not, H.264 is "the" de-facto standard on the Internet. Every time you visit Youtube, you are watching a video encoded using the H.264 standard. The video quality is great, the compression is astonishing. And so is the price. H.264 is subject to a huge number of software patents. You need to pay hefty licensing fees if you want to create H.264 files today. We, the users, are not feeling this as we are not paying a cent. However, the freedomes allowed by this format are limited, and vague at best: here is why.

Subject: KDE vs Unity: Is KDE Better Than Unity?

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

I have been using KDE under openSUSE for a while now, and for the first time in my life started to love KDE. Last night I went on a test driver and installed couple of KDE centric distributions including Mageia and Mandriva just for the sake of comparison. These two distributions showed what wonders can be done with KDE, if integrated well. The moment I booted into Kubuntu, I realised why Kubuntu is so low in Distrowatch (at 27). This is ironic because the 26 spots are dominated by KDE centric distros such as Arch, Mageia, PCLinuxOS, Chakra, Mandriva, etc.
