Reddit: Automating scp file transfer between 2 Linux machines?

Wednesday 13th of July 2016 12:38:12 PM

Hi all, I have a task I need to accomplish and am very inexperienced with Linux OS. I have two Linux OS that are able to ping each other and I need to complete a relatively simple task.

I need to develop a .sh script that when run, will copy files from one machine's directory to another machine. It just needs to be completed whenever I choose to run the script.

Reddit: Xbox One Elite support

Wednesday 13th of July 2016 12:13:52 PM

Hello reddit!! I have had problems since Christmas when I got my $150 Xbox One Elite Controller. It works fine, just not on Linux... I tried just to just plug it in and play but it didn't work, I tried installing Xpad with an epic failure when copy-pasting the github commands ("git command not found") and I'm at a dead end... I'm on Linux Mint 17.3. So does anyone know how I might solve this problem? Any help will be appreciated

TuxMachines: Inside the PocketCHIP, a $49 Portable Linux Computer

Wednesday 13th of July 2016 11:26:54 AM

Since the launch of the Raspberry Pi in 2012, the hobbyist community centered on low-cost, open-source, ARM-based computers has exploded dramatically. Every year, these small, hackable devices get cheaper and more powerful. In 2015, Oakland-based Next Thing Co. upped the ante by successfully Kickstarting a $9 computer it called “CHIP” to the tune of $2 million in funding. As part of its pitch, Next Thing Co. also showcased the PocketCHIP, a handheld version of the CHIP with a built-in keyboard and touchscreen display.

The PocketCHIP includes a 1GHz ARM CPU (with a Mali 400 GPU), 4GB of flash storage, 512MB of RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 4.3-inch touchscreen display, a primitive keyboard, and a five-hour LiPo battery. With this device now shipping to Kickstarter backers, I thought it would be helpful to take a closer look at the gadget on my trusty workbench, and document my findings in this slideshow.

TuxMachines: Best Linux distros for small businesses

Wednesday 13th of July 2016 11:01:29 AM

GNU Linux started as one man's personal project – it's now one of the most popular operating system bases in the world. But unlike macOS and Windows, there's not just one Linux OS. There are hundreds of individual platforms assembled from components and built upon the Linux kernel. Different distributions (distros) can vary wildly from one another.

So what's the best choice for your small business? We've approached this selection with a few criteria in mind. Stability is first and foremost, because if you're putting a distro to work, uptime is critical, and solid support provision comes a close second.

Women In Tech: Jane Silber, CEO Of Canonical

When I sat down to interview Jane Silber, CEO of Canonical, I don’t think it was lost on either of us that our ability to chat freely even though I was in my office in the middle of the U.S. and she was in her office in London, England had everything to do with cloud computing, an area in which her company does brisk business. Silber has been running Canonical (maker of Ubuntu, among a great many other software products) in one form or another for well over a decade at this point, first as COO and now CEO. She answers questions thoughtfully, with carefully chosen words; even though I’m sure I’m not the first journalist to ask her some of the below questions (maybe not even the first one this week), she had no canned responses, and she never veered off course to discuss her own agenda. There were no preset talking points; simply, I asked questions, and she answered them. Read more
