TuxMachines: GNU Tools

  • GNU Remotecontrol: Newsletter – June 2016
  • GNU cryptocurrency aims at 'the mainstream economy not the black market'

    GNU and an outfit called “Inria” have released Alpha code – version 0.0.0 to be precise – of an anonymous-but-taxable electronic payments system they say is “a currency for the mainstream economy, and not the black market.”

    “Taler”, as the effort is dubbed, looks to be an attempt to build on the concepts behind Bitcoin. So while Taler lets you use encrypted “coins” as a means of exchange, it is explicitly not a new currency. Instead, it “... uses an electronic exchange holding financial reserves in existing currencies.”

LXer: How to effectively clear your bash history

Monday 6th of June 2016 03:13:16 PM
On your Linux machines, a history of your bash commands is retained. This is great when you need to repeat a command or can't remember exactly how you executed a command in a previous session. However, this can also be seen as a security issue. What if someone gains access to your machine, opens a terminal window, and checks through your bash history to see what commands you've run?

Reddit: What is a good online resource to keep track of all new software updates and releases outside official repos that provide a Linux version?

Monday 6th of June 2016 01:31:03 PM

I have been noticing that there is quite a lot more software available for Linux outside of official repos than I thought.

For instance some interesting notetaking tools, such as TagSpaces, Laverna, NixNote, GitBook, all of them are not in distros repositories but provide a bundled tar.gz archive that can simply be extracted and run on Linux. In web browsers we have Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi and Firefox Beta/Dev.

However, I haven't found a centralised resource to browse for this "extra" software, I only get to know it exists by spending some minutes Googling or stumbling upon a reddit thread where it's mentioned. Is there some website or central database that keeps track of all new releases and updates for Linux?

Review: Linux Mint 18 (Sarah)

If you were looking to jump the Ubuntu ship completely, then we recommend taking a look at our recent Review of Fedora 24. It’s equally as good as Mint 18 and equally worthy of your consideration. Between Linux Mint 18 and Fedora 24, we reckon it’s exciting times in the Linux world. With the exception and onset of the boring world of vanilla Ubuntu releases, Linux feels reinvigorated and fresh once again. Jump on board, because it can only get better from here. Read more
