Reddit: What can we glean about you from your ten most-used commands (xpost from /r/commandline)

Thursday 6th of August 2015 11:51:32 AM

Everyone, quick! Run:

history | awk '{print $2}' | sort | uniq -c | sort -rn | head -10

This will give you the ten most-used commands you run. Mine are as follows:

[~/Pr] history | awk '{print $2}' | sort | uniq -c | sort -rn | head -12 274 ssh 61 host 39 ls 33 cd 30 ping 26 vim 24 cal 18 telnet 17 cat 16 traceroute

I wonder what you can tell about a man by his bash history...

TuxMachines: Korora 22 (Gnome3) Review: Works Right Out Of the Box & Includes Lots of Apps

Thursday 6th of August 2015 11:29:28 AM

Korora is an old GNU/Linux distribution (originated in 2005) that used to be based on ‘Gentoo’. But in 2007 the development of Korora was abandoned, yet in 2010, it was reborn, but this time it was based on ‘Fedora’, rather than ‘Gentoo’.

But to be honest with you, I’ve never had used ‘Korora’ before. Yet, after installing ‘Korora 22′ (based on Fedora 22) and using it for the past three days, it’s goals became pretty clear to me. It is this good looking ‘Fedora remix’ that strives to be the ‘Fedora’ that hosts a mild attitude & a sense of practicality, although good folks at ‘Fedora’ don’t have that luxury. In a world that’s dominated by ignorance & selfishness, their struggle is a difficult one. I admire their courage.

TuxMachines: KDE and Akademy

Thursday 6th of August 2015 11:22:58 AM
  • A Frank Look at Simon: Where To Go From Here

    As I had previously announced, I am resigning my active positions in Simon and KDE Speech.

    As part of me handing over the project to an eventual successor, I had announced a day-long workshop on speech recognition basics for anyone who’s interested. Mario Fux of Randa fame took me up on that offer. In a long and intense Jitsi meeting we discussed basic theory, went through all the processes involved in creating and adapting language- and acoustic models and looked at the Simon codebase. But maybe most importantly of all, we talked about what I also want to outline in this blog post: What Simon is, what it could and should be, and how to get there.

  • Akademy 2015: An awesome experience.

    So this was my very first Akademy, and I was excited about attending it ever since the beginning of when I started contributing to KDE a couple of years back. Feels great to have finally made it. Although I had some visa problems at the New Delhi airport because of which I reached A Coruna quite late and missed out on the entire first day of the conference, still I’m glad I could at least reach Rialta by sunset of that day and be able to attend the rest of all the days at Akademy.

  • Kubuntu Podcast #3 - Akademy 2015
  • Fiber Update; WebEngine vs CEF

    I also spent a good chunk of my time reading Qt and KDE coding guidelines and documentation on how files and classes should be structured, and then I applied that information to Fiber. The result now is well commented code, and consistent naming conventions in-line with other Qt/KDE projects.

  • Report from Akademy 2015

    A week has passed since I’ve been back from Akademy, so it’s more than time to make a little report.

  • Akademy 2015 – an unforgettable experience

LXer: WifiTransfer App Lets Users Move Files from Ubuntu Touch to Any Other Distro

Thursday 6th of August 2015 03:25:37 AM
Ubuntu Touch might be an operating system for mobile devices for now, but first and foremost, it's a Linux distribution. And like any Linux distro out there, it's really good at connecting to other devices, in this case a PC via the FTP protocol.

Reddit: Got RHEL 7.1 Workstation running on a Thinkpad T450s, if anyone is curious

Thursday 6th of August 2015 03:20:26 AM

I've got a couple new workstations for the office and decided to go with RHEL 7.1 workstation (Fedora was going to be my choice, but it is too disruptive to upgrade employee's machines). Two things of note;

  1. The touchpad is a pita on the stock kernel. However, elrepo's kernel-ml (4.1.4 as of today) works like a charm. Note that 4.1.3 worked, but there was some funny video artifacting when bootings/shutting down.

  2. The iwl7265 wireless worked with the stock kernel with the firmware RPM from RH, but did not work with elrepo kernel. To fix this, I checked out the kernel wireless git repo and copied the files manually and it worked like a charm.

Reddit: Can someone recommend a cheap laptop that will run linux well?

Wednesday 5th of August 2015 03:57:03 PM

I'm looking for a preferably sub $300 laptop that will run linux well and is known not to have incompatibility issues. Would like a cd/rom drive in it. I know what I'm gettng at that price level. I intend to wipe windows and run linux and xfce full time.

Thanks for recommendations. Dell refurbs from their site are fine, too - if someone can let me know how well they work.

I'm not a gamer, but I would use gimp alot.

Using Linux Mint: Common tasks, features and to-dos for the first-timer

Linux-based operating systems are like those friends you make in high school--you know the type: reserved, quirky and not quite like the rest of the pack. But intelligent and the kind that, once you get to know them, will stand by you through thick and thin. Ok, that may be a stretch, but you get the idea. Linux comprises but a fraction of a percent of operating systems deployed, and with reason--it’s traditionally been difficult to set up and use. Which is why it used to appeal only to users with a higher level of computer proficiency: basically geeks. But while this was the case back in the day, plenty has changed--today installing and using it is very comparable to the Windows experience. Read more

Google, Microsoft Create Alliance for Open Media

The founding members are Amazon, Cisco, Google, Intel Corporation, Microsoft, Mozilla and Netflix. The goal is to "create a new, open royalty-free video codec specification based on the contributions of members, along with binding specifications for media format, content encryption and adaptive streaming." The word open is used many times in the announcement, but only once with source. Is "open" the same thing as "open source?" Roy Schestowitz at doesn't think so. He organized the news of the AOM under the title "OpenWashing (Fake FOSS)."
