Subject: Backing up Your Desktop Settings with Ubuntu-Tweak

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

There is no shortage of backup software in GNU/Linux. From full clones of hard drives to browser bookmarks there's something for everyone. However, sometimes you just need to be more selective about what you backup. If you want to backup your precious desktop settings, you should try Ubuntu Tweak: it is bundled with a host of really useful features, it's been around for a while and it's up to version seven. You might find a version in your distro's repositories but if you're out of luck, download it from the official site.

Subject: Why I Won't Buy Amazon Phone

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

Amazon is reportedly working on its own Android based smartphone. Bloomberg published a story last week and now Wall Street Journal has also reported the 'existence' of Amazon smartphone. According to their sources the device is being tested with Asian suppliers and can go in mass production later this year or next year. Personally I have nothing against Amazon and I am a huge fan of Amazon when it comes to buy stuff from them. There service is awesome. But at the same time am pro-user which means I care more about the freedom that a user must have and Amazon's Kindle Fire denies that freedom, so will Amazon smartphone.

Subject: KDE assures users they can depend on Qt

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

KDE contributor and OpenSUSE community manager Jos Poortvliet has written a blog posting on the KDE news site, explaining the KDE project's stance on the future of Qt. According to the statement, the KDE leadership believes that their agreement with Nokia will ensure that there will be a competitive open source version of Qt for the foreseeable future. Their plans see the open source community around Qt collaborate with Nokia's development teams and continue to build KDE software with the toolkit.

Subject: Ouya Open Gaming Console Gets Funding--and Some Buzz

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

While it isn't the first inexpensive gaming console and open gaming platform to test the market, the open source Ouya gaming platform is generating buzz. A Los Angeles-based project, Ouya is billed as "a new kind of video game console" on Kickstarter, the open crowd funding online site dedicated to giving innovative ideas a chance in the market. As CNet notes, it only took about eight hours of crowdsourced funding on Kickstarter for Ouya's $950,000 startup goal to be met. Can this open, hackable game platform do as well in the actual market?

Subject: Striping Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.04

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

This tutorial shows how to do data striping across four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 12.04) with GlusterFS. The client system (Ubuntu 12.04 as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

Subject: KDE 4.9 Release Caters to Power Users

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

With the plethora of open source desktop environments available at the moment, it’s hard to keep track of all the different features sets. And since KDE, which has recently become my interface of choice, arguably enjoys less media love than alternatives such as GNOME and Unity, it seems only fair to highlight some of the feature changes in its next upcoming release, KDE 4.9. Read on for a look — and, just maybe, a few compelling reasons to give KDE a try.

Subject: A beautiful new terminal emulator for X11, Wayland and Linux Framebuffer

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

Terminology is a new terminal emulator. In fact as of the 12th of July 2012, it is only 1 month old, so all you see here is the result of some off-and-on work over approximately a month (so not full-time effort). This is an indicator of what is possible to do with EFL with some knowledge and effort in a fairly short space of time. This time included having to learn how terminal emulation works, pty's, escapes and so on and actually make a large selection of terminal applications work, so it's not perfect, but it's getting there.
