TuxMachines: Leftovers: Ubuntu, Mint, and Debian

Friday 1st of July 2016 08:18:35 PM
  • End of an era: Linux distributions will soon stop supporting 32-bit PCs

    AMD and Intel released the first 64-bit CPUs for consumers back in 2003 and 2004. Now, more than a decade later, Linux distributions are looking at winding down support for 32-bit hardware.

    Google already took this leap back in 2015, dumping 32-bit versions of Chrome for Linux.

  • Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak Alpha 1 Released
  • Linux Mint 18 Brings Mint-Y Theme to Linux Deskto

    The Linux Mint 18 milestone release is the first major update for the popular desktop Linux distribution in 2016 and follows the Linux Mint 17.3 update that debuted in December 2015. Linux Mint 18 is based on the Ubuntu 16.04 Long Term Support (LTS) Linux distribution released April 21 and, like Ubuntu 16.04, Linux Mint 18 is being supported as an LTS, with support until the year 2021. As was the case with previous Linux Mint distribution updates, there are multiple desktop environment choices. Cinnamon 3.0, which is developed by Linux Mint and typically is the primary deployment choice for users, brings new window tiling capabilities and default effects for window transitions and actions. Additionally, Linux Mint 18 includes a new desktop theme option called Mint-Y that brings newly styled icons to users. In terms of new integrated applications, Linux Mint 18 includes the gufw application, a graphical interface for firewall configuration. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at some of the highlights of the Linux Mint 18.

TuxMachines: Leftovers: KDE

Friday 1st of July 2016 07:45:50 PM
  • CentOS 6.8 image with Qt5.7, Python 3.5, LLVM 3.8

    While trying to bring my setup to package KDevelop standalone for Linux into a shape where it has a nonzero probability of me picking it up again in half a year and actually understanding how to use it, I created a docker base image which I think might be useful to other people trying to package Linux software as well. It is based on CentOS 6.8 and includes Qt 5.7 (including QtWebKit), Python 3.5 and LLVM, all built against the old CentOS libs (and thus e.g. compatible with most glibc versions out there). If you want to use it, simply install docker, and

  • Marble Maps in KDE Randa Meetings 2016

    One more year of fun and intense productivity in Randa came to an end just a few days back, and I feel so good to have been a part of it. Much progress was made by the Marble team this year by Dennis, Torsten, Friedrich, David and me. I mostly worked on the Marble Maps Android app’s navigation feature, and would like to mention the changes here very briefly...

    Podcast fans will know that we were struck down with lucky show thirteen. Google Hangouts crashed out twice, and we lost the live stream. We ended up half an hour late, with no Hangouts, and a hastily make-shift YouTube live stream hooked together in record time by the #awesome Ovidiu-florin Bogdan.

  • Hacking Kdenlive at Randa

    The Randa meetings 2016 just ended, and they were a big success for everyone involved (thanks to Mario and his team for organizing this).

  • The Road of Trials

    In my last blog post I said that I would work on extending support for paint operations like 'fill'. I have done so, albeit more as a necessity in fixing the assistant code. Moreover, I have fixed a number of other paint operations which are vital in painting the various assistants Krita offers currently.

  • State of the KF5 Android CI

    I would have liked to say, “Yeah the Android CI runs!” – But we are not there yet; pretty close actually, and close enough that it already makes sense to tell about it, yet a few last Jenkins settings remain to be done and real life issues cause this to take a few more days. So, I will give a short primer on what we prepared in Randa.

  • 7 Best File Comparison and Difference (Diff) Tools for Linux

    While writing program files or normal text files, programmers and writers sometimes want to know the difference between two files or two versions of the same file. When you compare two computer files on Linux, the difference between their contents is called a diff.
