Reddit: Screen flicker problem with Linux Mint.

Wednesday 25th of March 2015 03:37:13 AM

I have a Toshiba with an ATI Radeon x1200 video card.. which is what I'm assuming is causing this issue. I first was using Ubuntu 12.10 fine, but then decided to upgrade to 14.10 LTS and that's where the issue with the flickering started. Then I decided to give Mint a try to see if that'd work, but with no luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Reddit: Can someone ELI5 why people are so dismissive of the FSF/RMS?

Tuesday 24th of March 2015 04:44:14 PM

The FSF has thousands of members; why do people dismiss it entirely just because they consider RMS unusual/eccentric? Do they not realize how important the FSF's principles are or how instrumental they have been?

I'm a proud FSF member, btw.

LXer: Red Eclipse 1.5 Overview & Screenshots

Tuesday 24th of March 2015 08:53:34 AM
Red Eclipse is a free, open-source first-person shooter based upon the Cube 2 engine, with both single-player and multi-player support. It’s a fantasy shooter that bundles a very large number of maps and comes with modes such as DM, CTF or Defend and Control. For some reason, the game always gives me a feeling of calm, and the music theme is really great. So let’s take a brief look at this new version.

Reddit: Question about KVM and USB devices

Tuesday 24th of March 2015 04:58:04 AM

I've recently decided to switch from VirtualBox to KVM and have had a tremendous amount of ups and downs. I finally managed to get my extra graphics card passed through, so that's a plus. Now with PCI passthrough, obviously the PCI slot is ignored by the host; shouldn't USB act similarly though? I've passed a usb Xbox dongle through to the VM and installed the drivers for it, but out of curiousity I decided to look at the output of lsusb. Sure enough it's still showing up in the host. Will I need to remove xboxdrv from the active modules to be able to use my gamepad in the VM?

Reddit: When was the first "Year of the Linux Desktop"?

Tuesday 24th of March 2015 02:37:31 AM

So it's a running joke that 'the year of the Linux desktop' is going to be this year/next year. But since when? When did someone first say, "this is the year of the Linux desktop"?

(Also, what year do you think might actually be the year of the Linux Desktop?)
