Reddit: Can a GNU/Linux system/server be configured to act as destination for "HP Digital Fax"?

Friday 27th of May 2016 03:18:14 PM

With my older 8500-series HP printer I could configure the destination for scan-to-PC and fax-to-PC to be a standard Samba/CIFS shared folder, from the web UI.

Can anyone using one of the more recent models confirm that the "HP Digital Fax" functionality can be configured as before in the web UI? The documentation (for seems to imply this now requires a Windows/Mac system (and dedicated HP software).

I've asked on HP's forum too, hopefully this is still as easy to configure as before.

Reddit: Is the Geforce GTX 1080 suitable for Linux Gaming?

Friday 27th of May 2016 02:31:34 PM

Hi guys!

Since these beasts seem to be really good, I am thinking of updating my GPU, but I am not sure, if these cards work out of the box on Linux. Does anyone has any experience regarding this issue? What about GSync support? Thx!

Reddit: What Remote Desktop solutions are worth using?

Friday 27th of May 2016 02:02:21 PM

For as long as I've used linux, VNC has been good enough. Now I am starting to use a lot more VDI setups and it's hard to ignore how much better RDP is vs VNC. What's out there that can be hosted internally and delivered via client and web (or proxied via guacd/similar) with daily driver level performance?

Mesa Development

  • Mesa Branched, Mesa 12.0 RC1 Released
  • The Next Mesa Version Is Turning Into A Monstrous Release
    With the main Mesa drivers (Intel, RadeonSI, NVC0) jumping ahead to OpenGL 4.3 and mostly done with OpenGL 4.4/4.5, plus Intel adding their Vulkan driver, and many other improvements over the past three months, the next stable release of Mesa is going to be massive. This next version of Mesa is still referred to as Mesa 11.3-dev in Git, with no patches yet proposed for bumping it to Mesa 12.0 considering the new OGL milestones. Anyhow, with the crazy amount of new features I was interested in running some statistics on the code-base to see how its size and evolution compares to earlier Mesa releases. This article provides those numbers.

  • 6 Excellent Console Linux File Managers
    A console application is computer software which can be used with a text-only computer interface, the command line interface, or a text-based interface included within a graphical user interface operating system, such as a terminal emulator (such as GNOME Terminal or the aforementioned Terminator). Whereas a graphical user interface application generally involves using the mouse and keyboard (or touch control), with a console application the primary (and often only) input method is the keyboard. Many console applications are command line tools, but there is a wealth of software that has a text-based user interface making use of ncurses, a library which allow programmers to write text-based user interfaces.

  • vcswatch is now looking for tags
    About a week ago, I extended vcswatch to also look at tags in git repositories. Previously, it was solely paying attention to the version number in the top paragraph in debian/changelog, and would alert if that version didn't match the package version in Debian unstable or experimental. The idea is that "UNRELEASED" versions will keep nagging the maintainer (via DDPO) not to forget that some day this package needs an upload. This works for git, svn, bzr, hg, cvs, mtn, and darcs repositories (in decreasing order of actual usage numbers in Debian. I had actually tried to add arch support as well, but that VCS is so weird that it wasn't worth the trouble).
