Phoronix: Unigine Develops City Traffic System, A Driving Simulator

Wednesday 23rd of July 2014 05:40:00 PM
While the Unigine Engine sadly hasn't fully rode the Linux gaming wave with there still being very few games powered by this visually stunning engine that has supported Linux for many years, they are at least finding commercial success in other areas -- namely around simulation and industrial licenses. One of the company's recent endeavors is with a driving simulator...

LXer: KDE's Semantic Desktop: Nepomuk vs. Baloo

Wednesday 23rd of July 2014 05:38:18 PM
One of the most disliked features of the early KDE SC 4 releases was the developers' attempt to establish the semantic desktop. The tools to further this goal are Nepomuk and Akonadi. While Nepomuk tries to interconnect meta data from different desktop applications, Akonadi is a service that stores and retrieves data from PIM applications like mail, calendar and contacts. Together, they pave the road to allow users to find data, structured and connected by tags, ratings and comments, covering different file formats. On top of that, Strigi performs the indexing that enables users to find data with simple search terms in KDE's file manager Dolphin.

Wednesday 23rd of July 2014 04:41:07 PM

Netrunner 14 is easy to install, easy to use and comes packed with the best applications that Linux has to offer.

Reddit: When will the middle click paste be removed completely or at the very least CONFIGURABLE TO DISABLE??

Wednesday 23rd of July 2014 02:53:49 PM

Oh my god, this "feature" happens to be the worst fucking thing to ever exist on Linux. It's such an annoyance I've had to deal with on a constant basis when using Linux. There is NO way to disable it without compiling something, fuck that, I'm on a shitty goddamned computer that can't handle more than 2 tabs on Chromium.

As far as I know, GNOME WAS going to disable it and just make another context menu for it, which is a step in the right direction, but christ, seriously, I can't stand this "feature" that got me banned from snoonet when I highlight text to read it a bit better and I won't lose my place. AND SOMEHOW the mouse went apeshit and I accidentally middle clicked the text box while I had shit highlighted and I then got banned, not knowing what happened until I saw the paste.

PLEASE SOMEONE LET ME KNOW WHEN THIS "FEATURE" WILL BE CONFIGURABLE OR DISABLED OR JUST FUCKING ERADICATED FROM THE LINUX KERNEL

Thank you. I'm raging, yes, it's that bad.

Munich Switching to Windows from Linux Is Proof That Microsoft Is Still an Evil Company

Reports about the city of Munich authorities that are considering the replacement of Linux with Microsoft products mostly comes from one man, the Deputy Mayor of Munich, who is also a long-term self-declared Windows fan. Munich is the poster child for the adoption of a Linux distribution and the replacement of the old Windows OS. It provided a powerful incentive for other cities to do the same, and it's been a thorn in Microsoft's side for a very long time. The adoption of open source software in Munich started back in 2004 and it took the local authorities over 10 years to finish the process. It's a big infrastructure, but in the end they managed to do it. As you can imagine, Microsoft was not happy about it. Even the CEO of Microsoft, Steve Ballmer, tried to stop the switch to Linux, but he was too late to the party. Read more
