TuxMachines: GNOME 3.22 Supports Flatpak Cross-Linux Distribution Framework

Tuesday 27th of September 2016 11:28:22 PM

GNOME 3.22, the second major update this year to the GNOME desktop environment, debuted Sept. 21—and since then, has made its way into the repositories of Linux distributions, including Fedora and openSUSE. Much as was the case with the GNOME 3.20 update earlier this year, many of the changes in the latest iteration of the popular open-source desktop environment are incremental. Among the most significant capabilities in GNOME 3.22 is support for the Flatpak framework, which is designed to allow an application to be installed on various Linux distributions. The GNOME Builder integrated development environment (IDE) can now also be used by developers to build Flatpak-compatible applications. Flatpak is an alternative approach to Snappy, which provides similar capabilities and was originally developed by Ubuntu. The GNOME Files application continues to evolve and, in this release, adds new capabilities that enable users to open compressed files automatically. Files also enables users to compress files easily in common compression formats. Additionally, Files gained the ability to batch rename files and folders on a user's system. Here's a look at the key features of the GNOME 3.20 desktop update.

TuxMachines: goes Cortex-M4 with IoT Edition and Carbon SBC

Tuesday 27th of September 2016 11:25:56 PM

Linaro,, and SeeedStudio have launched the first 96Boards IoT Edition SBC — a $28 BLE-ready “BLE Carbon” that runs Zephyr on an ST Cortex-M4.

Linaro Ltd and its open hardware standardization group announced the first non-Linux and MCU based 96Boards single board computer, and the first to comply with a new 96Boards IoT Edition (IE) spec. Built by SeeedStudio, and designed with the help of Linaro, the flagship IE board is called “Carbon” by Linaro and 96Boards, and is called “BLE Carbon” by SeeedStudio. This suggests there might be other Carbon variants in the offing that could feature other radios in addition to, or in place of, the Carbon BLE’s Bluetooth Low Energy function.

Reddit: iam planning to revive the Trinity Rescue kit back from the dead!

Tuesday 27th of September 2016 10:29:01 PM

Hi All, i was looking at Trinity Rescue kit and i remember TRK hasnt been updated it in an few years. so i did some research and found how to create your own TRK and i decided to bring it back from the dead and update all of the tools if possible and even add some if i can. currently iam loading up the 2010 vmdk file onto my box and will be doing some testing before i release it. if their are tools / programs you would see in the program. let me know also, iam thinking of converting it over to an Debian based os to make things easier or just upgrade the current Mandrake Linux 2005 to an more updated distro like openmandriva or something.

note quite sure if its even possible to get TRK setup on an Debian 8 or Ubuntu based live cd. so if anyone wants to try to getting something working go ahead and let me know how it goes. my end goal is to ether have an updated TRK on Ubuntu 16.04 or even Debian 8 jessie.

Engineers love to think that they make decisions based on purelogic and merit. But of course, everyone has biases in terms ofprogramming languages, editors and other technologies—biases thatprobably can be defended in technical terms, but that often come down to anemotional argument as much as a technical one.

Reddit: Making CTRL + ALT act like AltGr (level3) in xkb

Tuesday 27th of September 2016 07:57:57 PM

Hi, I want to make CTRL + ALT to act like AltGr. From what I have understood it is possible to do this by modifying the level 3 file.

I have followed the second answer in this thread :

I have opened the level 3 file in gedit. So I have to change key <RALT> to CTRL + ALT. What do I write inside the <>? <LCTL + LALT>, <LCTL> + <LALT> or what?

If anyone could help me with this I would greatly appreciate it :)

  • Puppet Rolls Out New Docker Image Builds
    Folks who are focused on container technology and virtual machines as they are implemented today might want to give a hat tip to some of the early technologies and platforms that arrived in the same arena. Among those, Puppet, which was built on the legacy of the venerable Cfengine system, was an early platform that helped automate lots of virtual machine implementations. We covered it in depth all the way back in 2008. Earlier this year, Puppet Labs rebranded as simply Puppet, and also named its first president and COO, Sanjay Mirchandani, who came to the company from VMware, where he was a senior vice-president. Now, at PuppetConf, the company has announced the availability of Puppet Docker Image Build, which "automates the container build process to help organizations as they define, build and deploy containers into production environments." This new set of capabilities adds to existing Puppet functionality for installing and managing container infrastructure, including Docker, Kubernetes and Mesos, among others.
  • Five Cool Alternative Open Source Linux Shells
    We are going to look at some of the available Linux shells out there that users have access to free of charge since they are open source, they come in a number of different licenses and this mainly depends on the software creator but in essence one doesn’t have to pay to use the system; so that a major plus in whichever way we look at it. We find that there are different kinds of users when it comes to Linux, the ones who tread carefully preferring to stick to tried and tested software, the other kinds are the ones who dive into the deep end of cutting edge software; head first.
  • openSUSE Tumbleweed – Review of the Week 2016/42
    This was week 42 – The openSUSE LEAP week of the Year. It can’t be a co-incidence that the Release Candidate 1 was announced in Week 42, on the 2nd day (42.2 – European counting, we start our week on Monday, not on Sunday). But also in Tumbleweed things are not standing still: of course many of the things are well in line with what Leap received (like for example Plasma updates), but Tumbleweed rolls at a different pace ahead of the game.
