Phoronix: Libweston-Desktop Added To Wayland's Weston

Sunday 14th of August 2016 12:44:49 PM
For the past two years already there has been an effort going of building libweston, effectively punting much of the Weston code off into a library that can then be re-used by other Wayland compositors. Libweston provides most of the basic Wayland protocol components and other low-level functionality so it becomes easier for developers to build full-featured Wayland compositors. Now part of the family is Libweston-Desktop...

TuxMachines: today's leftovers

  • A Proper Linux Workstation

    The software I rely on daily includes LibreOffice Writer, Thunderbird, Audacity, SimpleScreenRecorder and Kdenlive. Accessibility applications I rely on include redshift-gtk and Workrave.

  • Download Linux Voice issue 21

    Issue 21 of Linux Voice is nine months old, so we’re releasing it under the Creative Commons BY-SA license. You can share and modify all content from the magazine (apart from adverts), providing you credit Linux Voice as the original source and retain the same license.

  • 5 Best Modern Linux ‘init’ Systems (1992-2015)

    Over the years, many init systems have emerged in major Linux distributions and in this guide, we shall take a look at some of the best init systems you can work with on the Linux operating system.

  • git-pbuilder 1.42

    A minor update to my glue script for building software with pdebuild and git-buildpackage. (Yes, still needs to get rewritten in Python.)

    This release stops using the old backport location for oldstable builds since oldstable is now wheezy, which merged the backports archive into the regular archive location. The old location is still there for squeeze just in case anyone needs it.

  • Atmospheric, Limbo-esque platformer 'Selma and the Wisp' is released for Linux on Steam

    Honestly, I've never heard of this game before, so I can't give an opinion about it, but I do think that its aesthetics and background score look pretty interesting. The creators clearly state they took inspiration from Limbo, but also some comparisons with Fran Bow can be made: besides the obvious fact that one of the lead characters is a little girl, the story is put in motion by an horrendous event in her house, as it's told in the following link (check second paragraph).

  • Multilib updates: gcc and glibc for slackware-current
  • The Onion Omega2 lets you add Linux to your hardware projects

    Need a tiny, $5 computer to build a robot that will bring you your slippers, initiate a massage chair session, and pour out your daily dose of bourbon?
    The Onion Omega2 can do all that and more.

    This tiny board is Arduino-compatible but also runs Linux natively. This means you can plug it in and get a command line or access the system via a desktop-like web interface. It has Wi-Fi built in and can be expanded to support cellular, Bluebooth, and GPS connections.

  • Noam use Gnome

    I don't quite remember when I read John Goerzen's post about teaching a 4 year old to use the linux command line with audio on planet Debian. According to the byline it was published nearly 2 years before Noam was born, but I seem to remember reading it in the weeks after his birth when I was both thrilled at the prospect of teaching my kid to use the command line and, in my sleepless stupor, not entirely convinced he would ever be old enough.

An Everyday Linux User Review Of Antergos Linux

So Antergos was recommended to me by a number of people and I have to say that the experience was decent. It isn't difficult to install Antergos but if you have a slow internet connection then you have to be a bit patient. Most things worked ok and hardware support was fine across the board. The Steam thing I put down to something that the Steam developers need to resolve. Come up with a better installer. Would Antergos make my top five now that I have tried it? I would say no to that. It isn't as good as Manjaro and that is the best distribution to pitch it against because they are both based on Arch. Manjaro has a more polished look and feel. Nevertheless Antergos is a good distribution and well worth a try. Read more

1.5m US iPhone users are about to switch to Android

If we take ComScore figures for January 2016 we see that around 198.5 million people in the US own smartphones. 52.8 percent of these use Android and 43.6 percent use iPhones, ComScore claims. If we use ComScore’s figures as base we can make some estimates based on Fluent’s research. Fluent believes 29 percent of all iPhone users will definitely buy a new phone this year, and while 87 percent of them will stick with Apple (21.8 million), 6 percent will switch to Android. This suggests that around 1.5 million US iPhone users will make this switch. Read more
