According to the latest "ubuntu-meta" package update from the Ubuntu Quantal Quetzal repositories, Unity 2D will no longer be installed by default in Ubuntu 12.10, and Unity 2D users are being transitioned to the Unity 3D session, just like it was discussed at UDS-Q.

Subject: Gnome3 porting to FreeBSD!

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

Gnome3 isn’t working on FreeBSD or in any BSD as Gnome3 uses technologies that are not available to BSDs. I thought Gnome3 to BSD was a dead project till Juanjo Marin (Gnome Dev in Evince and A11y) mentioned a few things about BSD in Gnome’s Marketing ML.It seems that there is a FreeBSD Gnome Project working to port Gnome3 there!

Subject: KDE 4.9: As Pretty and Peppy as a Linux Desktop Can Be

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

The latest release earlier this month of the K Desktop Environment, or KDE, is a solid upgrade that could very well win back the hearts and fingers of Linux users who wandered off to other, less powerful desktop shells. I am particularly impressed with its smooth integration into the dedicated KDE distribution in Linux Mint 13.

Subject: Furore over changes to licensing policy at CA/Browser Forum

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

The Certification Authority Browser Forum's (CA/Browser Forum) new licensing policy has caused a furore within the very organisation meant to be responsible for guidelines and best practices for SSL certification. Prominent member organisations, including cryptography specialists RSA, BlackBerry manufacturer RIM and US carrier Verizon, are missing from the latest member list, updated in August. Entrust, a founder member of the organisation, has loudly expanded on the reasons for its withdrawal, which it explains is due to the organisation allegedly forcing members to make patented technologies available licence-free. In a posting to CA/Browser Forum's public mailing list, certificate provider StartCom has responded by calling the allegation "a lie which I'm sure you are very well aware of".

Subject: Open APIs Help Social Site App.net Launch With a Bang

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

App.net, a new micro-blogging service launched with a bang last weekend when it blew through its initial fund-raising goal of $500,000. One of the reasons for that success was a pledge to build the site using open APIs. While developers pay a yearly fee, they can build applications on top of the service without being bothered -- in stark contrast to larger social meda companies like Facebook and Twitter.

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

Now that the New Zealand courts have the case, it appears as if the Megaupload king might, with luck, escape extradition to the United States. Even so, it’s doubtful his servers and data will ever be returned. Legitimate customers still can’t access their data, which remains in U.S. government hands. Dotcom, however, acts as if he’s holding a winning hand, having recently announced to his Twitter followers that he intends to launch a new service, Megabox, later this year.

Subject: How to create a continuous digital clock in the terminal

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

A digital clock is actually nothing special, most distros include one by default. However, in this article, I will show you how to get a continuous digital clock in the terminal. The basic command you can use to display date and time in the terminal is "date". When you open the terminal and run "date", you will have an output of the current date and time. To abbreviate the output to display the time only, you can add a tag (like "+%r" or "+%T") to the "date" command.

When you view a patent via Google's patent database, there will now be a button you can click, which tries to take terms from the patent, and displays a variety of related info from the date that the patent was filed:

Subject: Managing A Headless VirtualBox Installation With phpvirtualbox (Fedora 17)

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

phpvirtualbox is a web-based VirtualBox front-end written in PHP that allows you to access and control remote VirtualBox instances. It tries to resemble the VirtualBox GUI as much as possible to make work with it as easy as possible. It is a nice replacement for the VirtualBox GUI if you run VirtualBox on headless servers. This tutorial explains how to install phpvirtualbox on a Fedora 17 server to manage a locally installed, headless VirtualBox.
