I currenty am using nautilus as my main file manager on my debian gnome setup. The Dropbox integration for it is alright but im looking to use something more along the lines of Thunar. I still want to have decent Dropbox support for my school files to allow accessibility across all my devices. Any suggestions would be great.submitted by /u/Link011
It seems to me that the Linux Mint people have a really good thing going with Cinnamon, which is rapidly becoming the GNOME 2.0 replacement. But Linux Mint as a distro is nothing to write home about. I used Mint for several years and found the overall experience to be frustrating. Being based on LTS Ubuntu releases meant waiting ages for hardware support or updated packages. There was no good way to upgrade from one major version to another. PPAs and repos would randomly break, especially after updates. I'm using Fedora these days and I have none of these problems. Having media codecs pre-installed was always nice but that's not even true anymore. So what's the point? Most of the things people like about Linux Mint are actually part of a desktop environment or could be (e.g. mintupdate, mintdrivers).
Why don't the Linux Mint guys focus all their energy on Cinnamon and supported apps? As a desktop environment, Cinnamon is awesome. But as a distro, Linux Mint seems like a dead end to me, especially as the Ubuntu and GNOME/GTK folks move in divergent directions and lose interest in supporting downstream derivatives.

For the past few months my laptop which had issues with recent windows updates causing major issues with my machine's dedicated graphics (GT640M). Ended up giving up trying to fix the Window's issues and installed Linux mint and after a night of fine tuning it all works better than Windows.submitted by /u/keknom
I see online guides like this: http://www.howtogeek.com/192360/how-to-create-saved-search-folders-on-windows-linux-and-mac-os-x/
It shows screenshots of nautilus in Ubuntu doing what I want: giving you the opportunity to save a search and have a folder update its contents based on the criteria of that Search.
I also see a plus button that would be used to invoke the feature in a screenshot here: https://blogs.gnome.org/mclasen/2012/08/30/on-nautilus/
But I'm using GNOME 3.22 in Fedora 25 and the version of Nautilus on my machine doesn't seem to have the feature. I've searched from top to bottom and I can't find it.
Was this feature removed, or patched in by Canonical developers and only available in Ubuntu, or something else?submitted by /u/PointiestStick
What's the most secure operating system?
Deciding what operating system (OS) to keep your computer running smoothly—and with the highest level of security—is a controversial yet frequent question many business owners, government officials, and ordinary Joes and Janes ask.
There are many different operating systems—the software at the base of every computer, controlling the machine's array of functions—like Mac OS10, which comes pre-loaded on Apple laptops and desktops, and Microsoft Windows that's on the majority of personal computers. Google's Android and Apple's iOS for mobile devices are designed specifically for devices with smaller touchscreens.
Whatever OS you use—and many users are very loyal to their operating system of choice and will argue that their's is the best—it's not entirely secure or private. Hackers are still infiltrating systems every day, and they can easily target victims with malware to spy on users and disable their operating system altogether.
Because of this, choosing a secure system is essential to staying secure online. Below are the top three secure operating systems that will help users take the next step to ensure proper cyber and hardware security.
New IoT Botnet, Attackers Target Tor, and More…
Firefox’s emergency security patch: If you use Firefox at all, and I’m assuming that most of you do, you might want to run an update to get the latest security patch from Mozilla. The patch was rushed to market on November 30 to fix a zero day vulnerability that was being exploited in the wild to attack the Firefox based Tor browser.
In a blog post on Wednesday, Mozilla’s security head Daniel Veditz wrote, “The exploit in this case works in essentially the same way as the ‘network investigative technique’ used by FBI to deanonymize Tor users…. This similarity has led to speculation that this exploit was created by FBI or another law enforcement agency. As of now, we do not know whether this is the case. If this exploit was in fact developed and deployed by a government agency, the fact that it has been published and can now be used by anyone to attack Firefox users is a clear demonstration of how supposedly limited government hacking can become a threat to the broader Web.”
openSUSE Heroes meeting, day 2
After a long, but exciting first day, we even managed to get some sleep before we started again and discussed the whole morning about our policies and other stuff that is now updated in the openSUSE wiki. After that, we went out for a nice lunch…
Installing Tumbleweed, November 2016
The Tumbleweed system that I already have installed had desktops KDE, Gnome, XFCE and LXDE. But for recent intstalls (as with Leap 42.2), I have been going with KDE, Gnome, XFCE, LXQt, FVWM and MATE. So it seemed reasonable for the new Tumbleweed install to follow the same path. I also added Enlightenment for experimenting.
Why Android malware scares are almost never as bad as they seem
The "Verify Apps" feature of Play Services is Google's firewall against app-based malware. It was introduced in 2012, and first enabled by default in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. (Older versions can manually enable it in the Google Settings app.) Verify Apps works similarly to a traditional PC virus scanner: Whenever the user installs an app, Verify Apps looks for malicious code and known exploits. If they're there, the app are blocked outright — a message is displayed saying "Installation has been blocked." (In other, less suspicious cases, a warning message may be displayed instead, with the option to install anyway.)

I know there are a bunch of tools you can use specifically from Kali. But looking for more out there is there is and opinions of you guys with the experience.
Certs worth it? Will I waste my time with my current role?
