Subject: The Linux Works: A New Linux Blog

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

I have a new Linux blog, one which will have articles I would have published at O'Reilly Broadcast (or O'Reilly News or Linux Dev Center) in the past. As most of you know, I wrote/blogged for O'Reilly about Linux from 2006 until May, 2012. O'Reilly's blog sites are still there but they've done away with Linux blogging. I've also written features for DistroWatch but my involvement in the development of a Linux distribution makes continuing there appear to be a conflict of interest.

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

Gnome 3.6 hasn’t even been released yet by the work towards to 3.8 is massive. This time I extracted the latest Gnome Calendar mockups from the experimental Gnome Git.Always keep on mind that these are very early tentative designs and there is a good chance to change, postponed for next Gnome releases or even they might completely dropped.

Subject: Crazies: Linux w/o Ethernet, Multi-Monitor, Multi-User

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

It seems the crazies are back to invading the Linux kernel mailing list and/or have expanded their trolling cult. After it was proposed in August that Linux doesn't need x86-32 support and Linux doesn't need keyboard support, the latest proposal is to drop support for Ethernet, multi-monitor, multiple user accounts, and no more optical drive support...

Subject: Kiwi 12.08 Screenshot Tour

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

After exactly two years of neglect I released a new version of the Ubuntu remix with Romanian, Hungarian, German and English languages included by default. It is based on Ubuntu 12.04.1, and keeping in line with the traditional goals of the project, it targets Linux newbies who find some of the standard Ubuntu applications lacking or who are taken aback by anything too unfamiliar. It also targets lazy people who would otherwise change about the same things on a vanilla Ubuntu install. So it features the Classic GNOME 2 desktop, Chromium, VLC, Pidgin, Flash, multimedia codecs and the rar and p7zip archive format handlers.

It is also the first version of recent Ubuntu releases that will not have an alternate installer installation image, as most of the features from the alternate installer have now been incorporated into Ubiquity.

Subject: Fast Burst Camera: When Great Action Shots Are Enough

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

Spritefish's Fast Burst Camera may be just the app for sports photography. I've reviewed camera apps for Android OS before, and I've been particularly fond of Vignette, with its 76 customizable photo effects including infrared. That app is superior to market leader Instagram. However, Spritefish claims that Fast Burst Camera can take up to 30 photos per second.

Subject: Split audio files with Mp3splt!

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

A few days ago we saw Gnome Split that is an application used for the splitting and merging of any kind of files. We used an mp3 file for our example and the file chunks were not playable as you would expect…Mp3splt is another small GTK3 application that will help you split your audio files in such a way, that the produced chunks will be playable. Apart from that, it also offers some more audio specific features that will be very useful in such situations.

Subject: Why Linux Desktop is still not dead ?

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

We have been reading lately from some frustrated individuals, talking a lotabout death of Linux Desktops. While it's good to read their opinion, it seems many of these people are either getting old or don't live with current trend. Linux is already 20 years old and in 20 years one can get old. This article is just my opinion on this subject.

Subject: Desktop Linux Revolt: How KDE Survived Its User Backlash

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

Desktop Linux has had four years of upheaval. Since 2008, KDE, GNOME, and Unity have all faced vocal criticism from users, creating an opportunity for other desktops like Xfce, LXDE, Mate and Cinnamon to gain popularity. But, in all the discussion, one question has never been discussed: how did KDE, the first desktop environment to suffer a revolt, manage to live through the experience and continue to prosper?

And also unlike the graphical installer of Ubuntu 12.10 beta 1, that of Kubuntu 12.10 beta 1 does not yet have preliminary support for LVM, the Linux Logical Volume Manager, and full disk encryption, and there is no indication that those features will even make it into the installer by late October when the final stable version is released.

Subject: Fuduntu: Volunteers Needed

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

Fuduntu Linux has been around since November 2010 and was initially a Fedora remix distribution. In November 2011, however, the codebase was forked and is now an independent distribution. Overall, there are over 30,000 users accessing the repositories. While any distribution takes work and a dedicated team, an independent distribution takes even more work than a remix. Fuduntu, just like many distributions, relies on volunteers. The volunteers are what keep the distribution going. The users are great and that’s what gives the motivation to go on, but volunteers are needed to make sure that distribution keeps going for the users. Today, we’re looking for volunteers. Have you ever used a Linux distro thinking that you would really like to get in to help but there are so many volunteers, you feel that you wouldn’t be able to get as close as you would like?
